Weird, offbeat and bizarre news from around the world. Funny, strange & odd news stories that make you wince, laugh and fear for humanity.
Have you read the “The Satanic Children’s Big Book of Activities”?
The Satanic Temple wants to give these pamphets to children in Orange County, Florida.
Why? Well the Orange County School Board said that Christians could legally hand out Bibles in school. So. Non-Christian groups wants to hand out their own literature. The Central Florida Freethought Community (CFFC) planned their own giveaways.
But the School Board became a censor:
Orange County Public Schools insisted on vetting the freethought literature from FFRF and other secular groups. It censored many of the materials, including “Letter to a Christian Nation,” Sam Harris’ book; “The Truth,” an essay by Robert G. Ingersoll; “Jesus Is Dead” a book by Robert Price, professor of philosophy and religion; “What on Earth Is an Atheist,” a book by Madalyn Murray O’Hair; “Why I am Not a Muslim,” a book by Ibn Warraq, and several FFRF “nontracts,” including “Dear Believer,” “Why Jesus?” “What Does the Bible Say About Abortion?” and “An X-Rated Book.”
To Guapiles in central Costa Rica, where a woman is stealing a TV set by smuggling up the dress she is wearing.
Shop assistant Jacint Ramirez Callas, 25, is astounded and a little impressed:
“She did it so quickly no one had time to notice or react. And having watched the video it is amazing that the TV doesn’t fall out from between her legs. She must be a pro or have very thick thighs.”
Is it a bird? Is it a firework? Is it a Russian missile? No, dude, it’s Jesus Christ. And he’s using the Northern Lights over Iceland to make his Second Coming.
Local headmaster Jón Hilmarsson tells his local paper:
‘This was the most beautiful and vivid northern light display I have ever seen. We usually see green auroras but that night I saw bright green, red and purple colour, which is very unusual. Many people see the shape of Christ but also an angel formation.’
How do you clean your doorknobs?
On Twitter, Door Knob Girl brigns us something no-one in Anorak Towers had ever thought of. And that’s quite something:
The Wigan Post has news of a man who “tried” to have sex with a Post Box.
Two thoughts, well three:
1. He tried to shag an inanimate box with a hole in it? And failed!
2. Did he wear a, er, Jiffy envelope / French letter?
3. Is nothing safe?
Sex tip of the day is provided by Nigeria’s Pulse, in partnership with Origami Monthly:
Some men believe that because of their penis size, they cannot enjoy sex or give pleasure to their women. But they are wrong as there are positions for every size.
The Average Penis:
For an average snake, it is always advisable to experiment with different positions that will provide deeper penetration but the best position for you is the crouching position.
This is the best position you can adopt for maximum enjoyment. Here, your woman wraps her arms around your shoulders and her legs around your midsection before you crouch down in a squat position so that your body makes a human chair for you.
Then with your left hand pick up a cup of tea and with your right take hold of the TV remote…
Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid is answering you questions on Islam. Under ‘New Fatwas’, the Sheikh talks about snow.
226557: Ruling on making snowmen
Is it permissible to make snowmen?
Praise be to Allah.
If the snowman does not have clear facial features such as eyes, a nose and a mouth, and it is merely a three-dimensional figure with no features, like the scarecrows that farmers set up to scare away birds, and signs that are put on roads as a warning of roadworks or construction, then there is nothing wrong with any of that.
“It was so easy to buy a tattoo gun off the internet for about £50,” says Holly Aston, of Birmingham. That’s her with the squirting penis tattoo on her right shoulder.
“You get the full kit of needles and ink and it’s easy to operate, though they give you no instructions about keeping it sterile. We were very lucky not to get an infection or blood poisoning. I had tattoo parties with my mates. We’d have some drinks and tattoo each other – it was stupid.
It was 10:15am in Fayetteville, North Carolina, when Zia Segule, 28, left for work. He headed home to surprise his wife with breakfast.
Segule’s wife, 27-year-old Tiffany Segule, had set the alarm. She was in bed her husband came home. He’s arrival triggered that alarm. So. The good wife did what anyone would do: she picked up a gun and fired through her closed bedroom door.
Rhinos are surprisingly bright. The Austrian Times reports:
A young female rhinoceros named Rihanna led two pals on an escape bid from a safari park last Thursday after spotting a security guard had fallen asleep.
Local News watch spots goings on in Bolton. The Bolton News reports:
A COUNCILLOR has hit out after thieves stole trees from decorative flower pots in Bromley Cross. Around 20 conifers, standing no more than a foot tall, have gone missing from pots put around the village to the dismay of the volunteers who planted them.
Call special branch:
To Florida, where John Balmer is asking “Who Needs Drugs?” The message is written on his T-shirt.
It’s less of a statement than a straight-up question. Who needs drugs? Because John Balmer has drugs. “No seriously, I have drugs.” It says that on his T-shirt, too.
“The full body suit can help racing camels run faster, while the cream of the species entered into camel beauty contests will have the ability to stand taller after using the suit,” says Abu Dhabi’s Al Shibla Middle East.
The mission statement from the company retailing its full lycra camel suits to the camel racing community is worth repeating:
Sportswear and equipment is a booming business. Everywhere we look we can see people in tracksuits, swimwear, football kits and jogging shorts-we are told to use the proper attire or else we risk injury, inefficiency or even disqualification. The development of ever more impressive technologies to help advance this market is relentless, and the enterprise is rapidly expanding. But why should this be limited to humans?
If you want to get your pets breeding, get them some fetching outfits:
Just as lingerie turns on human males, tiny jackets do the same for male rats, a new study finds. In an unusual study, researchers allowed virgin male rats to have sex with females wearing special rodent “jackets.” Later, when scientists gave the males a chance to mate again, the animals preferred to mate with jacket-wearing female rats rather than with unclad ones.
“He had a chicken in one hand, and he was trying to get the attention of Macca the crocodile with his hat, holding it in his left hand,” says RACQ Careflight spokesman Brian Russell of Ian Jenkins, owner of the Snakes Downunder Reptile Park and Zoo. Mr Jenkins had been playing with his pet crocodile to entertineing the crowds.
“Unfortunately the crocodile has come up and bitten the hat and his hand and has unfortunately amputated his left thumb. The crocodile actually dragged the handler under the water. He suffered a significant hand injury and … he also had a fairly sizeable laceration to his head.”
“It is as simple as Macca took a swipe at him and actually connected,” says Ian’s wife Barbara. “I do know his left hand is badly damaged … we had another person in the enclosure – if it wasn’t for her quick thinking getting the attention away from Ian it would have been worse.”
The quality of Mr Jenkins’ chickens is not known, but when your crocodiles prefer to eat a hat, it’s time for a new recipe…
To Florida, where a man is keen to paddle his 12-year-old daughter. She’s argued with her sister. She must be punished. But dad does not want to break the law. So. He calls the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office. Would they come and watch?
Undersheriff Noel Stephen says this is not rare. He has personally supervised approximately 12 spankings. He says:
“It happens.. It’s definitely not something we advertise to do, and even though law enforcement has been willing to help out in this situation, watching a parent discipline their child is something that’s done only when a deputy has no other calls to handle.”
If you need tips on how to assault your child, call the Florida police. What they don’t know about spanking pubescent girls is not worth knowing…
Amber Campbell, 25, and John Arwood, 31, broke into the Marine and Environmental Science Center in Daytona, Florida, to get goofed on crystal meth and crack cocaine. They found an unlocked cupboard. They went in. They took loadsa drugs. And then they forgot how to get out.
Police responded to calls of a break-in. They picked up the stink of human excrement. And thet led them to the fragrant Amber and John who had been in the cupboard for two days.
Or was it much, much longer…?
Are you a lonely princess looking for a lonley pricness to marry? Well, why not try a solo wedding in Kyoto?
You are single and you don’t know if you would be able to get married and have a wedding ceremony in the near future, but you would like to have some pictures of yourself in a wedding gown or in a gorgeous bridal kimono now, when you are young and beautiful..
..or you even believe that you don’t really have to get engaged to be able to wear a bridal outfit..
..or you are already married, but didn’t have a proper ceremony with a beautiful dress and you find this fact to be quite regretful..
..or you did wear a dress, but it was so long time ago that you would like to experience it again, or you were too busy with the wedding preparations to enjoy yourself fully during your special day and you are looking for a second chance..
Offer yourself an opportunity to experience the feeling of being a princess in a beautiful and charming city of Kyoto!
From ¥300,000 per person (one person only) you get the gown, the photos, flowers and a “Japanese man for image partner during the photo shoot… from ¥54,000 (clothing included).” No rpices are offered for lesser or greater men – say, the French or Texans – but Japanese men are ready and willing.
And realise that by 2015 33% of Japanese households will consist of a single person. And brith-rates are so low that estimates say that by 2050 the population could be as low as 97 million – 30 million lower than now.
Why did the seal head for a field in Merseyside?
The sea mammal was discovered in a “distressed state” by a dog walker on Monday, close to Newton Brook near Newton-le-Willows, by a startled member of the public. It is unclear how the seal got to the field but it was found about 20 miles from the nearest coastline…
Farm owner Gary Watkinson said: “It’s quite unusual.”
It is quite unusual. But not as unusual as the polar bear chasing it…
Call David Icke:
Each year, scientists publish roughly 17,000 detailed descriptions of newly discovered animals. Recently, in the journal Breviora, researchers described yet another, a new species of lizard called Aspidoscelis neavesi.
At first glance, this seems to be a run-of-the mill lizard: a small, slender creature with spots along its back and a bluish tail. In fact, Aspidoscelis neavesi is quite exceptional. The lizard was produced in the laboratory by mating two other species, and its creation defies conventional ideas about how new species evolve.
What could go wrong?
To Spain, where a fat ‘Mary’ has crushed to death a natitivy scene donkey:
A donkey, part of a live Christmas crib in southern Spain, has died two days after being mounted by a 150kg (330lb) man who gatecrashed the nativity scene. The man jumped over a fence and leapt on to the five-month-old donkey, named Platero, who was part of a nativity scene in the town of Lucena, near Córdoba. The donkey was literally squashed by the man.
We need bigger donkeys to keep up with the obesity epidemic…
So. Ting Su, 29, used a tracking device to keep tabs on her husband Cheng. The gadget worked. Ting found Cheng have sex with her twin sister in a car.
Both were naked. The car was not moving.
The sisters are not identical. This was no case of mistaken identity.
Ting pounced. She climbed behind the wheel. The two love birds hoped out. Ting drove off, leaving the naked duo behind.
“It was so funny,” said 33-year-old witness You Meng. “Loads of people were grabbing their phones and I did as well. He was banging his fist on the window and shouting at her, and she just wasn’t playing ball.”
In South Dakota, those long drives make the mind wonder and cars drift. Cindy Struckman-Johnson has also been wondering:
“There are people getting killed out there because they’re having sex while driving, either with themselves or with another person… If they’re getting killed, we have an obligation to understand it.”
A paper co-authored by Struckman-Johnson, recently published in the journal “Accident Analysis and Prevention,” found that 33 percent of men and 9 percent of women at USD have engaged in some sort of sexual activity while driving.
Whatever you do, Sir Cliff Richard is watching you. He’s at the window looking at James Maltby.
Mr Maltby believes his neighbour posted the image on the property to get back at him after he reported him to the council over allegations he was breaching planning rules – which his neighbour denies.
To New Zealand, where an Irish toursit is moving his kayak by car along State Highway 25A between Kopu and Hikuai.
District road policing manager Inspector Freda Grace tells us:
“To make matters worse the officer was already on her way to a vehicle crash, and this driver’s behaviour could very easily have caused another – imagine if he had encountered a cyclist driving like this.”
Yeah, imagine. That woild be, er, terrible, just terrible…
