In Belgrade, the police raided an underground chess club: “Hold the Grandmaster!”
Finally, the admirers of the gangster entourage had an excellent opportunity to open underground spots, because it’s quarantine. In Belgrade, underground establishments with girls and jazz will not surprise anyone, but chess is definitely something new. Local residents of Belgrade (by the way, it’s in Serbia, for those who didn’t know) complained about an underground club to the police. Having arrived on call, the police discovered a premise in which there were 17 senior citizens. The men were calmly playing chess and dominoes, and the hospitable 70-year-old Serbian Al Capone, a.k.a. the owner of the underground club, was serving alcohol to guests. The policemen had to ruin that perfect moment and arrest the whole company. They were accused of violating several laws at once in a state of emergency. All of them will face hefty fines, and this is that rare case when even chess could become a gambling game.

A groundhog is teasing dogs with pizza
It turns out that a groundhog eating pizza can make any news story ten times better. This was proved by 6abc Action News employees by adding a video of Philadelphia resident Kristin Chalela Bagnell to the news report. Kristin videotaped a groundhog who found a piece of pizza in her trash can and was playing a good knife and fork in front of her perplexed dogs. It is hard to imagine the emotions of the dogs Maggie and Moses when they approached the door and saw that a wild groundhog was rampaging on their territory and eating pizza that they were not allowed to eat!
A dog stole false teeth from the owner
Ben Campbell from Michigan bought himself huge false teeth just for fun (what else to do in quarantine?). Ben’s terrier named Thomas liked this purchase, so he decided to steal the veneers off the table. However, instead of biting them as a decent dog would do, he decided to put them on humanly right. Another dog breeder, having seen such a spectacle, would have decided that he was going crazy. But Ben is not like that. He did the right thing – he grabbed his phone and began recording a video. So, the idea with false teeth turned out to be winning.

Museums are going crazy, too: curators started sharing creepy exhibits on Twitter
Quarantine not only locked us down but also made museums all over the world close their doors, too.
There are ways to visit any museums your heart desires online, of course, but that doesn’t seem enough for now. Quarantined curators and staff came up with an idea to share pictures of the creepiest and most unusual objects their galleries and museums feature, and joined the #CuratorBattle on Twitter. The objects include a pigeon heart stuck with pins, a terrifying mermaid, a cursed toy, figures made from crab’s legs, and hair buns of ancient Romans. Ever seen anything weirder or quirkier? We neither.
