Polly Want A $10,000 Box of Crackers?

The Rogloff family from California got a lot more than just Hi-Ho's when they opened up a box of crackers and discovered $10,000 inside. The money was found inside a large white envelope containing only $100 bills.

Was it a drug deal gone bad? A freak accident at the cracker factory? No, the story is more complicated than that. Let's just say it involves an elderly woman, a grocery store, and a distrust of banks. Curious? Click here to read the rest of this crazy ordeal from the Associated Press.

Forrest Gump apparently had it all wrong when he said that "life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're gonna get." He must have meant crackers. Now if you'll excuse me, I am off to the local grocery store where I will open up random boxes of macaroni and cheese in hopes of finding a diamond ring or maybe even a winning Powerball ticket.
