It's that time of year again when our favorite websites try to pull the wool over our eyes with elaborate pranks.

From the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize naming Miley Cyrus and Jennifer Lawrence as the co-recipients for 2013, to Seamless.com offering "Deluxe Delivery" to upgrade the hotness of their delivery boys, here are some of the best Internet tricks of 2013.

"Gallon Smashing," a new prank that teens everywhere are pulling in grocery stores, was traced to three hooligans in Vienna, Virginia. Omar, Zayd and Faysal Khatib from Marshall High School (ages 16, 16 and 15 according to the Fairfax Times) videotaped themselves smashing gallons of milk together, then clumsily slipping all over the mess to make it look like they slipped and fell...and that it's too slippery to get up.

Sounds like someone needs to get her family politics in order.

The Real Housewives of DC infamous White House crasher is now vying to crash the Governor's mansion…but this time as the actual Governor (and no, we're not joking).

[Updated 11/29/2012] Richard Scully, a 49-year-old lawyer, is in trouble for allegedly beating up his 26-year-old ex-girlfriend in Glover Park last week, according to The Washingtonian. He is due in court on August 1 for the incident.
An editor's note on the Washingtonian article writes:
EDITOR'S UPDATE: The US Attorney's office dropped the charges against Scully on October 9. Mark Schamel, a partner at Womble Carlyle, Sandridge & Rice, who is now representing Scully, says the prosecutor’s investigation of the case found evidence that contradicted the alleged victim’s version of events. “The arrest was made based on a false allegation,” Schamel told The Washingtonian.
Yay, what good news for Richard!
The Washingtonian also reported that he used to be married to Washington Post publisher Katharine Weymouth. They wed in 1998 and divorced six years later.
The Washington Post makes no mention of the story. Cold!
The incident allegedy happened right by the Holy Rood Cemetery and Harvey Middle School, on Whitehaven Parkway NW.
He features one quote on his facebook page,
"Don't worry when you are not recognized, but strive to be worthy of recognition." -Abraham Lincoln
