Weird, offbeat and bizarre news from around the world. Funny, strange & odd news stories that make you wince, laugh and fear for humanity.
ON the bright side, Ashik Gavai, 17, from Buldhana, India, has no ambition to be a reality TV star or song-contest judge? Had he wanted those showbiz dreams, cosmetic dentists at LA’s Nip ‘n’ Tuck surgeries would have been bleaching each of his 232 extra teeth, not pulling them out.
To Brazil,where 35-year-old André Silva de Jesus has been found in possession of contraband. Following a search at a prison in Ribeirao das Neves, Greater Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Silva was found with a variety of household goods stashed up his bum:
2 mobile phones, two batteries, pliers, two drills, eight pieces of a hacksaw, five nails and three Sim cards.
THE bride explains why she tied her young baby to her wedding dress:
“Our 1 month old was awake and well secured on my train. Most important while yall got ya feelings in us we had our hearts in Christ which covers all!! So keep ya mouths running for it was just that Exclusive and Epic enough we made top blog way from small town Ripley, TN and the social media doing what they do, TALK!!!!”
What with the cost of child minding, it’s what Jesus wanted…
…AND she’s not even got to the practical part yet, where what she’s been told is 6 inches causes problems. This is really quite amazing, this lady has managed to fail the driving theory test 110 times:
KRISTIN Kissee, a cancer survivor, saw ‘God’ in hair. Says the Missouri woman who saw the word ‘GOD’ in her forelocks:
“I was feeling overwhelmed having to adjust to life with a newborn and a 3-year-old with autism, along with the anticipation of my latest scan results…so I prayed for strength and peace. I was overcome with feelings of joy and serenity. I cried. God answered my prayers.”
Flippers and faps: the dark side of dolphins
THINK of dolphins and you might think of Fred Neil’s beautiful, poignant song of that name, performed here, in one of his many versions, by the late Tim Buckley…
Or – if you are of a certain age – you might be transported with warm fuzzy memories of Porter Ricks and his marine mammalian mate Flipper: ‘No-one you see is smarter than he…’
THE World’s fluffiest rabbit is owned by Betty Chu:
EVER wonder what snake’s venom does to human blood?
It’s estimated that snakes bite around 5.5 million people every year, leading to 400,000 amputations, and up to 125,000 deaths.
India suffers more than any other nation. The country is home to the wold’s largest venemous snake, the terrifying King Cobra. Gowing up to 18-feet, this snake contsins enough venoms to kill 20 people. But it rarely does. It lives in dense jungle and forest, where people rarely visit.
More prolific are the Indian cobra (Naja naja), saw scaled viper (Echis carinatus) and common krait (Bungarus caeruleus) and Daboia russeliiviper (Russell’s Viper). They live around humans, eating the rats that feast on waste.
Most people are bitten when they step on a snake. Poor lighting and a lack of shoes make for a dangerous environment in snake territory.
So. Want to see what a drop of Russell’s Viper vemon does to human blood:

Joseph Riley of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, bites a snake’s tale after sucking snake blood during a jungle survival training at the 2009 Cobra Gold military exercise in Chonburi province, southeastern Thailand Saturday, Feb. 14, 2009. The two-week annual joint exercise involving nearly 12,000 soldiers from Thailand, the United States, Singapore, Japan, and Indonesia, taking part in land, sea and air drill, is considered the largest military operations in the Southeast Asia region.

OTHER Parents presents John Ruiz, 41, who left his 11-year-old daughter home alone with a loaded weapon while he nipped out to get a head tattoo.
Some one spotted the child with the pistol as she leaned out of a window at the family’s home in northeast Albuquerque. They called the police, who arrested dad.
Ruiz said he leaves the loaded pistol with th echild in case anyone breaks in while he’s out. It’s a foolproof plan. But in case she thinks about walking about outside with the loaded gun, he issues her with strict instructions not to. But she has disobeyed him in the past. Kids, eh. What can you do?
Police duly charge Ruiz with endangering a child’s life or health. The girl is still in his custody and the Children, Youth and Families Department is investigating the case.
As for the ink, we can’t read the tattoo on his head, but it’s most likely a reference to his nickname: DICK.
THIS is the most lovely story about a prank that was played upon the Nazis back in the 1930s. They had a countrywide competition to find which baby was the most perfect example of the Aryan race, you know, those with the right blood that were going to inherit the continent. All a bit creepy of course but then that’s the sort of thing that they used to do.
So, they have this competition and Goebbels himself picked out the final winner. Who was, in fact, a Jew, although no one told anyone that at the time. Fortunately she survived the war and the Holocaust and has now been able to reveal all to the world:
When Hessy Taft was six months old, she was a poster child for the Nazis. Her photograph was chosen as the image of the ideal Aryan baby, and distributed in party propaganda. But what the Nazis didn’t know was that their perfect baby was really Jewish.
“I can laugh about it now,” the 80-year-old Professor Taft told Germany’s Bild newspaper in an interview. “But if the Nazis had known who I really was, I wouldn’t be alive.”
Prof Taft recently presented the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial in Israel with a Nazi magazine featuring her baby photograph on the front cover, and told the story of how she became an unlikely poster child for the Third Reich.

IN 1987, John Ray Bohlen taught parents how to raise children in his guide How to Raise ‘Purfect’ Kids. You can read more of his wisdom on the Great Commission Ministries Website.
In this day when juvenile delinquency is rampant and broken homes are rife, here is a safe, sure, and sane —– guaruntee from God!!! Here are practical Kingdom principles on how to raise perfect children written by a couple who did!!!
In these pages, meet Joey, Kari, Dawn Joy, and Josh. They are fun loving, people loving and God loving! They are obediant, but creative; righteous but not religious; rrespectful, but not restrained.
John has yet to write a book on spelling, but he is massively popular (it says here):

Spotter: Christian Nightmares
TO Port Charlotte, Florida, where Kayla R. Oxenham, 23, used a hot stick to brand her 5-year-old and 7-year-old children. She did this because to better identify the children as being hers.
Oxenham, who says she loves fire (note that her head resembles a match), works as a medical assistant.
ANTONIO Rodrigues Mororó, 50, from Niterói, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, is the Human Pincushion. His career as a sideshow freak began one night during a party at his home.
One of his son’s told him that his pregnant wife would not enter the house because there was an animal sitting on a wall by the front door.
THE GUN debate moves to El Cajon, California. It’s 2:15pm. Hiram’s Guns & Spirits is open for business – because guns and booze are the perfect bedfellows.
A man arrives. He points a gun-shaped object at the store workers.
Two accomplices, armed with hammers, smash the display cases and grab fistfuls of handguns.
HOW fat is Christopher Mitchell.
Why, he’s so fat that he can hide his stash of weed in his stomach rolls.
Mitchell’s hiding place was only discovered when police spotted the 450-lb, 5ft-6-inch high 42-year-old travelling in a car without a seatbelt on.
WHAT does you dog like to drink?
TO Florida, where the State’s new Woman of the Year has been arrested in May for shooting a missile into a vehicle.
The prostitute was a Daytona Beach Police Department officer. No, she wasn’t moonlighting for extra beans. She was undercover, trapping people looking for rented sex.
Liverman was “operating a bicycle” when the officer approached him. He said he no money.“I’m hungry, you got food?” she said.
“I bought a dead dog, skinned it and cut off its head. I wrapped it in my clothes. I just wanted my [family members] to think I was dead.”
