(Newser) – A TV crew from WMTW News 8 in Maine was setting up to do an update about missing 73-year-old Bob McDonough when McDonough himself walked into the shot. McDonough, who has dementia, had gone missing the previous day, and police were out with canine units looking for him. He appears to be fine. "Good news and a happy ending," said reporter Norm Karkos. "Rather bizarre," adds Slate.

Dementia? Psh. Dude just finally got the growing of high-quality weed all figured out. He went to visit his hidden grow op, and now all the attention has him worried the wardens will find it. Watch it again with that in mind, and see if you don't agree.
