An empty pizza box was delivered to a girl who wanted 'whatever' to eat.

Deciding what pizza topping to have is a tricky one. If anything, there are too many choices when it comes to the perfect topping combos.

But when a guy made a 16-inch barbecue chicken pizza order for himself, he decided to teach his girlfriend a lesson for not being fussy about what he ordered for her.

On the bottom of the delivery, which is understood to have been ordered online, he put in a special request and then uploaded the evidence to Reddit.

The note to the takeaway read: "Please send me an extra empty box that has 'whatever' written in big letters because that's what my girlfriend says she wants."

A motorist has been given a ban from driving for being too tall.

Adam Elliott, 26, a car dealer from Newcastle, was convicted of dangerous driving after he was caught standing up in a Ford KA and poking his head out of the motor car while delivering the vehicle to a customer.

The 6 ft 7 in driver pleaded guilty to the claims, but insisted he wasn't driving dangerously and believes his height is to blame.

According to the Metro newspaper, he said at the court hearing: "I was not stood up, I am just tall.

"I pleaded guilty to this because I was advised to, but I still insist I was not standing up. It's just because of my height.

"I'm an excellent driver, but I was advised to plead guilty to get it over with."

Judge Adams at the Newcastle Crown Court gave him an interim driving ban of 12 months until the next court hearing.

A Florida woman has been charged after police say she hit an officer with a tampon.

Local news outlets report that 28-year-old Tacora Fields was arrested and charged with aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer.

A police report says Fields was involved in a fight when a St Petersburg police officer responded.

Police say Fields threatened to hit the officer with her tampon. Authorities say Fields then removed the feminine hygiene product and threw it at the officer, hitting him in the shoulder.

Police say Fields tried to flee the scene, but the officer used a stun gun on her and she was taken into custody. It's unclear if she has an attorney.

Roses are red, violets are blue, how about having a roach named for you?

The Bronx Zoo is offering people the chance to name one of its Madagascar hissing cockroaches in honour of someone for Valentine's Day.

The zoo in New York City started offering the Name-a-Roach programme in 2011 as a fun way to fundraise. For $10, recipients get an e-mailed certificate telling them one of the insects from the world's largest roach species has been named for them. This year, the zoo is also offering to send along chocolates or a Madagascar cockroach plush toy for higher donations.

No worries about there not being enough roaches to go around the museum said it had thousands of them on exhibition.

The money goes to the Wildlife Conservation Society.
