Weird, offbeat and bizarre news from around the world. Funny, strange & odd news stories that make you wince, laugh and fear for humanity.
TO Maine, where 19-year-old Robert Burt has been arrested in June for operating under the influence and driving without a licence. Police took his mug shot.
His crime warranted a custodial sentence. It would begin on August 8.
THIS must be a rather sad way to go, death by anally inserted vibrator. Sad though the death itself is it does provide a rather wonderful story about living conditions in some parts of this Dear Country of ours.
The Mail gives us the news:
A jobless man died after a vibrator became lodged in his body and was too embarrassed to see a doctor, an inquest has heard.
Now OK sex games can go wrong and clearly this is one of those cases. There’s stories that at least one Pope (and we’re certain of this about several Cardinals) died getting jiggy with his mistress and there are repeated stories from A&E departments about people turning up with odd things, root vegetables perhaps, stuck in odd orifices. The usual preferred explanation seems to be that they were just peeling potatoes while nude and fell over…..
THE 18th Century Mexican statue of Jesus Christ is kitted out with human teeth. Did they grow? Is the statue posssed? It is real human being dipped in a plastic resin? CNet reports:
It used to be common for western churches to hold onto human remains: bits of teeth and bone and hair and skin purported to be saintly relics, sometimes holy treasures kept and revered — and sometimes the objects of the fraudulent relic trade.
A new discovery in Mexico, however, is a first for human remains in a church: a statue of Christ has been discovered to have teeth — not teeth carved from animal bone or horn — but actual human teeth.
The 18th century Lord of Patience statue in the parish of San Bartolo Cuautlalpan — known for its gruesome blood and open wounds — was about to undergo restoration at the National School of Restoration, Conservation and Museology. In preparation for the restoration, the team X-rayed the statue, to find eight adult human teeth adorning its mouth.
“It is common that the sculptures have teeth, but they are usually made of wood or bone carved individually or as a plate, but in this case has eight teeth of an adult,” said team leader and school director Fanny Unikel in a museum video. “The teeth were probably donated as a token of gratitude. It’s the first time human teeth have been found in a sculpture.”
Sure. Donating your teeth to Jesus is what he would have wanted. Pick up a donor card at your local statue-orium.

YOU put your right leg in…
A FLIGHT between Tunisia and Scotland had to be diverted after a drunk passenger attacked cabin crew with her prosthetic leg.
The woman demanded “cigarettes and a parachute” and became aggressive when staff asked her to calm down.
Holidaymaker John Smith, from Falkirk, said the woman slapped a young girl in a neighbouring seat before unfastening her leg and swinging it at flight attendants.
The crew managed to put her in handcuffs while the pilot of Thomson flight 297 from Enfidha to Edinburgh made an emergency landing at Gatwick.
The woman was escorted from the plane by police, as passengers broke into a rendition of the hokey cokey.
You put your whole self out…
LUCKY Charleigh Matice found a Swastika in her McDonald’s chicken sandwich, bought at a brand in Morehead City, North Carolina.
Eat yer heart out, Hamburglar. This is the surprise gift that will get the kids flocking to the store.
But Charleigh was upset by the free extra. She says her grandfather fought for the Allies World War II. It’s not what he would have wanted.
McDonald’s is swift to punish:
“We are very sorry for the service that our customers received, and to be clear we have terminated the employee who was involved. We do not tolerate that kind of behavior at McDonald’s, and it’s not what we stand for personally as owners. It is about providing the best level of service and care to our customers, and anything less than that is unacceptable to us.”
E-fit of the day: A 19-year-old man has been arrested after a 56-year-old man suffered “potentially life-changing” injuries when a noxious chemical was thrown over him on Bramble Road in Witham, Essex, on Friday.
Essex Police said the e-fit demonstrated a “strong likeness” to one of the two attackers
IS Nothing Safe?
A man in Texas has been arrested and accused of humping a woman’s driveway. David Micheal Gray, 41, has been charged with public lewdness. Court documents state that on Tuesday evening a woman pulled into the driveway of her Harris County home when Gray walked up to her and asked her for a lighter.
She told him she didn’t have one and he walked away. After she went in her house, she told police she saw Gray “thrusting and humping” her driveway.

Julia Cons’ creation is missing, presumed stolen. Says Julia:
“I couldn’t believe somebody has stolen her but I’m trying to keep some perspective on it. She’s been a bit of entertainment in the village and they [the culprits] have spoilt that and ruined it for other people.”
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:

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…’

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.

IS it cheating that the 2014 World’s Ugliest Dog winner is not as nature intended? Peanut beat 24 other dogs to take top honours at the show in Petaluma, California. Peanut is a rescue dog with wounds from severe burns. His eyelids, lips and hair were seared off.
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):
John Bohlen is a person of unquestioned integrity who has dedicated his life to the fulfillment of the Great Commission. John’s message about “The King’s Greatest Secret” has blessed many throughout the United States, and his books are in great demand in Africa as well as in the United States.
