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

    Christopher Robinson, 23, who ran out on paying child support for his three-year-old, but was caught posing on Facebook with a pile of cash. Apparently Robinson never made any of the required $150 monthly child support payments for the past three years. But pictures Robinson posted on Facebook that show him posing with a wad of cash and bottles of liquor helped the district attorney's office build a case against him.

AND THEN THERE'S .....

    A woman in Texarkana, Texas, who doused a snake with gasoline and lit it on fire in an effort to rid her property of the reptile. The engulfed snake slithered into some brush nearby the home. Police says the brush ignited and started a fire that destroyed the home and damaged one next door.

OR HOW 'BOUT .....

    Delaina Garling, a mother-of-the-year candidate, who was asked to leave a Dollar Store after allegedly being caught stealing. Garling started to walk away and then pulled out a pepper-spray can, turned toward the two victims and sprayed them both in the face. After dollar store workers tackled Garling, she handed the pepper spray can to her seven-year-old daughter and yelled: "You know what to do, baby. Spray it!" The young girl did not use the spray, but watched as her mother was pinned to the ground until police arrived.

OKAY, ONE MORE .....

    A couple in the San Diego area, who purchased a $220,000 Lamborghini and then crashed it before they could even get it home. What's even more bizarre, they abandoned the super sports car on the highway and fled. Documents inside revealed the 2008 Lamborghini Murcielago had only been bought hours before from a dealership in Newport Beach, California. The very expensive vehicle was found abandoned with huge dents in its front-end and rear driver's side. Police are looking for the owners.
