Worst crosses you have heard of?

Ok so I was talking about crosses with a friend, and on my gosh.

I saw a TWH x Gypsy.

It was very interesting, he was also a stallion and he has a couple foals on the way...

I've also heard of a mule/arab/thoroughbred before.

What about anyone else?
Have any rather interesting crosses you know of?

I'm really curious to know what the TWH/Gypsy cross looked like. I would have NEVER thought of that one.

I've got a shetland pony gypsy vanner cross at my rescue xD He's freaking adorable, but a few horrible conformation issues >.< We've just learned that his teeth don't line up, he's SO sow mouth his teeth don't even touch! He'll need to be floated at least twice a year and his foods gotta be softened. -.-'
According to the breeders, their shetland mare got loose and found a gypsy stallion, didn't know she was pregnant or who the dad was until it was too late. Luckily she birthed safely despite him being as big as her at 6 months old o.o
This is him a little more than a year:

Haha yes they'd make wonderful little ponies, he could do just about anything fast xD He loves to go! Gallops around his paddock full speed, hair pin turns - he's a ball to watch. But I really wouldn't recommend the cross, being such a big size difference and the clear conformation issues that'll make his life tough.

Aww, he's sooo cute! The story does seem a bit odd though. Whatever, she's very cute! (:

Belgian x Arabian

I love both of the breeds, but they did just not combine well.
