Gotta Watch: Twain's latest book, diamond covered skull

Business booming for Twain publisher - Meet the printers of the Mark Twain's latest book. That's right, the master storyteller has done it again and the publishers of the book seem to be a bit overwhelmed. The small Detroit publisher started with a modest request for 2000 books that eventually exploded to a request for more than 300,000 copies. Twain requested that his autobiography be published a century after his death fearing that it might be too offensive for his time.

Gotta Watch: When Otters attack, baby chills to reggae

Aggressive otter terrorizes neighborhood - This so-called mad otter sounds about as scary as an angry turtle. However, animal control is worried that the otter might be rabid after having bitten Chester, a young golden retriever. Flyers were posted in the neighborhood by officials, but how seriously can you take a memo about an angry otter?

Gotta Watch: Fast food f-bombs, driverless VW

Would you like an f-bomb with that? - A Sacramento, California, man was not amused when the receipt for his meal said f*** you ... twice. The man said he didn’t do anything to provoke the employees. We're thinking Cee Lo Green might have been in the back making the fries.

Gotta Watch: Living in a $500K closet with mom

Diminutive dwelling - If you think your house is too small you may think again after you meet Fuyuhito Moriya. He’s a 39-year-old man who not only lives in this tiny home … but he lives there with his mother. Together, they’ve built a three-story home on a patch of land the size of a parking space. The two take tidy to a whole new level, owning only two coffee mugs.

Gotta Watch: Deer in a bar, stylish riot gear

You don't have to go home, but you can't stay, deer: So, a deer walks into a bar... OK, maybe walks isn't quite right. Let's try bounds, crashes, stumbles into a bar. We get an inordinate amount of deer videos here at CNN. No one's sure why, but type the word "deer" into the CNN search box and you'll see what I mean. In this video, a whitetail in Ohio says, "Forget the foraging, I need a brew," and plows through a window, shoots a stink-eye to the bartender, sidesteps a surprised customer/amateur lion tamer, bounds out a back door and chases a kitchen manager, turning the parking lot into a Midwest version of Pamplona. Now, the bar has a new kitschy special: Two beers for a buck.

Gotta Watch: The presidential boogie

Every so often a president stumbles upon a moment that's destined for awkwardness. You can bet that moment usually comes in the form of dancing.

Over the weekend, President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama were both motioned onto the dance floor during their visit to India. The dance was a part of the Hindu celebration of Diwali.

We couldn't help but take a look back at another great moment in presidential dancing when President George W. Bush showed off his moves during a Malaria Awareness event back in 2007.
