This had me ROFL!

This news almost seems straight out of Onion but it actually appeared in the 31st december edition of DNA -

Stealth warship collides with merchant vessel

Full marks to the Russians. That is one remarkable stealth warship they have built. It is so stealthy that other ships come and collide with it! I can almost imagine the russians designing their new product brochures -

"Our stealth warships - So hard to detect, that you'll worry about other ships colliding into them"

The story says - the ships tried to alter course on spotting each other but failed to avert the collision
