Gotta Watch: Chainsaw britches, pot for tots, history's jigsaw, Haiti's 'Earth ships'

The ol' cut and run - An Oklahoma man is accused of stuffing a chainsaw down his pants and running. Well, waddling is likely a better word. The best part about this absurd story is the repeated use of the term "britches" and the infamous local news standby – the old camera man re-enactment routine.

In this harrowing video the man is discovered, examined, strapped up and shipped out. All in a day's work.

Gotta Watch: Bike giveaway; sliding cars; return theft; Morning Cup of Conan redux

900-bike giveaway – A neighborhood in Akron, Ohio, hit by tough economic times, got an early morning surprise over the weekend when Santa rolled in riding shotgun in a big rig. Inside were 900 bicycles and tricycles, all given away by a charity called Elves and More.

Icy roads lead to demolition derby – It seems a bit cruel to plant a camera at the bottom of an icy hill and wait for havoc to ensue, but that's what a local news crew did in Spokane, Washington. The recent rash of bad weather out West lead to some big insurance claims and a ridiculous video of the slowest pile-up you may ever see.

Cleaning up in aisle two – Holiday sales are up for retailers across the country, but so are holiday scams. CNN's Susan Candiotti shows surveillance video of shoppers returning merchandise they just grabbed off the shelves. The brazen acts cost retailers $14 billion a year.

Morning Cup of Conan redux   Finally, in case you missed it, "CoCo" sits down with Mark Wahlberg for today's Morning Cup of Conan.

Gotta Watch: Capt. America, drug-induced water shortage

Not-so-comical mission - There comes a time in every man's life where he comes to a crossroad,  time to calculate a purpose and envision the trail ahead. For one man, the trail was followed for miles and miles in a cheap, store-bought comic book costume and comfortable shoes. A Tennessee man says he's bursting with American pride and has taken to the streets to prove it in a heartfelt, albeit confusing, attempt to raise awareness for homeless veterans.
