Stingray photobombs women in the Cayman Islands; photo goes viral

Photobombing is a popular pastime among Major League Baseball and NBA players, among others, stepping into the background of photos surreptitiously. Bet you've never seen a stingray perform a photobomb. Until now:

Three women vacationing in the Cayman Islands look terrified as the stingray photobombs them, with a little help from the gentleman behind them. They are swimming in an area known as Stingray City, where swimmers feed the rays with squid. 

And where rays terrorize unsuspecting women guests.

The photo, not surprisingly, has gone viral.

Brad Pitt spends $400K on odd wedding gift for Angelina Jolie: A shooting range

A date has yet to be revealed for the wedding of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, but the tabloids are abuzz about the wedding gift Pitt is bestowing upon his bride-to-be.

The gift? A shooting range and armory for the tidy sum of $400,000.

Well, of course. It's for the bride who has everything.

The Sun in the U.K. reported that "Pitt really hits the bull's eye" when it comes to keeping Jolie happy, inferring the actress is an "adrenalin addict" and could use the shooting range to let off some steam.

The range and armory have been set up on the grounds of the couple's Miraval estate in southern France, The Sun reported. And it comes with people-shaped targets, similar to the ones they shot at while training for the movie "Mr. & Mrs. Smith."

Pitt and Jolie did intensive training with assault weapons for the "Smith" movie. You can see them in action on YouTube where you'll find a Mr. & Mrs. Smith Gun School 1 and Gun School 2, where the screengrab below came from.

Anyway, here's more from The Sun on the unusual wedding gift:
A source said: "Brad had a lot to live up with his wedding gift considering Angelina exchanged vials of blood with her ex-husband Billy-Bob Thornton.

"But Ange clearly finds shooting an aphrodisiac. When she and Brad were around weapons on the set of 2005's Mr & Mrs Smith they ended up together.

"And by letting Angelina de-stress at the range, he's less likely to get earache indoors. There's a lot to be said for that when you have six kids."
Uh, let's forget we heard that bit about Ange and what she finds about shooting, shall we?
