TODAY'S GENIUS AWARD GOES TO . . . . . . .

    Jamie Sniffen, 39, a woman, who was cheating on her live-in lover and accidentally pocket-dialed him from the other man's home, triggering a bloody pre-dawn battle after her boyfriend tracked them down. Sniffen watched as the fight ended with two arrests -- and both men in the hospital. She admitted her first mistake was cheating on her boyfriend and the second was sitting on her cell phone. She's now trying to raise the bail money.

AND THEN THERE'S .....

    Aaron Williams, 25, who insisted that he wear a spaghetti strainer on his head for his new driver's license photo, and ended up in hot water. Williams claimed to be a "Pastafarian" and told state workers that "his pasta strainer was a religious head covering and it was his right to wear it for his license photo. Williams eventually agreed to be photographed minus the strainer after police officers explained that the metal cookware was not approved religious garb and he would be arrested for disturbing the peace if he didn't comply.

OR HOW 'BOUT .....

    Marlon Cloutier, 47, who was worried that someone would find his pot farm and steal his crop, so he decided to move it to a secure area. Unfortunately, he chose an area inside a fenced-in portion of the Augusta (Maine) State Airport. That's right; he was growing pot inside the airport. Not surprisingly, someone noticed his suspicious activity and reported it to the cops. Busted!

OKAY, ONE MORE .....

    A would-be stuntman, whose name was unintelligible in the video, tried to create a viral video for YouTube. His idea was to jump half-clothed on to a cactus. He did... then ended up in great pain. The video in the link contained the F-bomb and is not safe to post.
