NUMBER 5 - WILL FERRELL'S HILARIOUS LINEUP ANNOUNCEMENT
Funny guy Will Ferrell announced the Los Angeles Dodgers' starting line up, with a few funny ad-libbed lines thrown in, wearing a full Dodgers uniform Wednesday. He was there for Game 5 of the Championship Series, against the St. Louis Cardinals. The Dodgers went on to win it 6-to-4.
NUMBER 3 - MURDERERS ACCIDENTALLY FREED
The search is on in Florida for two convicted murderers freed from prison because of a mix-up. Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker walked out of the same prison within days . The Florida Department of Corrections says in both cases, court documents were forged. In addition to the search, authorities are conducting an internal investigation to see how the forged papers were created and who made them.
NUMBER 2 - SHOUTING WOMAN REMOVED FROM HOUSE FLOOR
Drama on the House floor Wednesday night, as lawmakers approved a short-term plan to end the government shutdown. A house floor stenographer was hauled out after screaming during the voting (if you watch the attached video, she's the woman right behind the "Yea" in the middle of the screen, wearing beige-colored clothing.) Witnesses say she grabbed a microphone and started yelling, "Do not be deceived" and "God shall not be mocked. A house divided cannot stand." She was escorted out by the sergeant-at-arms and taken to a local hospital for evaluation.
NUMBER 1 - DONE DEAL
The deal is done. The 16-day government shutdown is over. President Barack Obama signed a bill early Thursday to reopen the government and raise the debt ceiling, hours after Congress approved the plan. However, it's only a temporary fix. The measure funds the government through early January. It also raises the debt limit through early February, saving the country from defaulting on its bills.
