It's National Boyfriend Day . . . Will You Actually Do Something to Celebrate?

Today is National Boyfriend Day. You probably didn't know that . . . but now that you do, are you going to slap something nice together for your boyfriend?

According to a new survey, when one out of six women in relationships found out about National Boyfriend Day, they were like . . . yeah, no, I'm not going to do anything for him.

Out of the women who ARE going to celebrate, 24% plan to cook a nice dinner . . . 23% are planning a date . . . 10% will buy a present . . . and just over 1% will buy their boyfriend flowers.

The survey also found that 9% of SINGLE women say they'd rather have pets and food than a boyfriend.

A Burglar Tries to Throw a Brick Through a Glass Window . . . But It Bounces Back and Hits Him in the Face

Sometimes karma hits back REALLY quickly. A guy tried to break into a restaurant in Maryland a few weeks ago. He managed to get inside, and his plan was to throw a brick through the window in front of the counter, so he could get back there and rob the place.

But he didn't realize the window was made out of BULLETPROOF GLASS. So when he threw the brick, it bounced right off the window . . . and hit him square in the FACE. He went down immediately, and stayed down for a few minutes before he ran away empty handed.

The cops just released the surveillance video of him getting knocked out . . . and they're trying to track him down by asking people to report someone with a, quote, "suspicious head injury."
