The internet "star" of the day goes to a young lady named EMILY PETROZZA. The 21-year-old from Newington, Connecticut, was horrified to discover that poison ivy had spread from her arm to her eyeball and had a friend named ALLISON take her to a local clinic. Allison sent a photo of the swollen, red circles to her sister, LAUREN, who Tweeted out the shot. The Twitterverse went wild, the photo got over 58-thousand "Likes," 33-thousand re-Tweets and fans the world over chimed in to share their puffy eyes, too.
Emily is on prescription medication, told BuzzFeed News that her eyeballs still itch and was a really good sport about the entire ordeal. (Lee)

You've done the whole Ding Dong Ditch thing before.
That's when you go to a house, ring the doorbell and run off before the people inside come to answer the door.
But in Shorewell, Illinois, JOHN WRIGHT, an 82-year-old insurance agent, has filed a $50-thousand dollar lawsuit against the family of a teenager who's reportedly done the whole ding dong ditch thing so many times because Wright works with his father, and he's reportedly lost $30-grand in income as well as suffering "severe emotional distress, severe anxiety, sleeplessness, extreme and rapid weight loss, and required treatment medication in order to function in his daily living."
