David Buchanan, 34, of Royal Wootton Bassett, England, was watching porn at home. His mind wondered: what would it be like to have sex with a dog? So. He tried it out with the nearest dog he could get, a 10-month-old Rhodesian Ridgeback. And he recorded it. He then accidentally sent the footage to his girlfriend because the device he was on was linked to her cloud account.
She called the police.
In court, Buchanan pleased guilty to sexual assault. He is now on the sex offenders’ register for seven years and embarking on 50 days of rehabilitation.

Megumi Igarashi is in trouble for making a large scale “pussy boat” based on 3D scans of her own vulva. Igarashi, known in Japan’s art circles as “Rokudenashiko” (“good-for-nothing girl”) has been arrested for emailing data from her 3D genital-scan.
It turns out in Japan depictions of genitalia are banned by a 1951 Supreme Court decree that forbids anything that “stimulates desire and violates an ordinary person’s sense of sexual shame and morality.”
If Igarashi’s Junk doesn’t float your boat you can take home replicas of her vulva is jewelry form.
News just in: Igarashi is free. But she’ll back in the dry dock on Tuesday. She faces up to two years in prison or a fine of up to 2.5 million yen ($24,500).
“The fact that I was arrested for this at all shows that Japan is still very backwards about women’s sexual expression, that it is not acknowledged at all except as something for men’s pleasure. There’s huge resistance to women using their body to express themselves. The fact that I was arrested for this is just strange…. I don’t believe my vagina is anything obscene. I was determined I would never yield to police power.”
Feel free to put your oar in (but watch out for splinters)…
In the Czech Republic Erik Meldik is one half of the pranking ViralBrothers. One laugh feartured Meldik telling his girlfriend, Dominika Petrinova, she had accidentally put her pet dog in a washing machine. Dominika was extremely upset. And when she’d calmed down she plotted her revenge.
On his birthday, Dominika walked a naked and blindfolded Erik from the shower. In the lounge, she sat his naked rear on a chair on which she’d stuck waxing strips. Erik, doubtless expecting a birthday BJ or some other sex-driven thrill, was stuck.
As she struggles. She titters.

To Florida, where Kenneth Crowder, 41, of Melbourne, is attempting to expand the Holy Tree-nity by having sex with a tree. Crowder is off his face of flakka, a form of bath salts.
“Crowder was spotted by witnesses running naked through a Melbourne neighborhood, yelling that he was a god before committing a sexual act on a tree.”
It turns out that sex wasn’t invented when your loins first stirred over a copy of the Argos catalgoue. People have been at it for at least a couple of hundred years. In Poland, for instance, the Regional Office for the Protection of Monuments in Gdańsk has found a “sex toy” down an ancient toilet.
The 250-year-old dildo is “thick, made of high quality leather filled with bristles, and has a wooden tip.”
Like all the best knobs are…

Japan has given us some of the world’s weirdest games shows. But it’s excelled itself with Sing What Happens, the show where male contestants try to sing karaoke whilst a presenter gives them a hand job.
Will you fluff your lines as the fluffer works your metronome? Will you hit the high notes as well as the low ones?
Your turn is over when you ejaculate.

He hands that number to police. It turns out the car is stolen.
A GPS device located in the stolen car reveals that it’s stopped at 6700 Crossbrook Lane. Police race over. They find the car. They note that the GPS is displaying this new address as ‘home’.
Police find Donnie Jaydon Terry, 18, hiding on the porch.
They arrest him, probably for his own safety…

To Turkey, where Mayor Melih Gökçek of Ankara is being sued by the Turkish Union of Engineers and Architects’ Chambers for investing tax money on a wonderful 20-foot tall robot statue. The statue is not a 3D version of a self-portrait. It’s to advertise a new theme park.
Said Gökçek in reply to the many critics who have slammed his project: “Respect the robot.”

Mum orders a Sweet Kiss ‘mocktail’ for the girls. She then goes outside for a cigarette. The waiters brings the girls their cocktails – two glasses of Sex On the Beach (“A naughty little mix of vodka and peach schnapps topped with both cranberry and pineapple juice”).
To Des Moines, Iowa, where a thief has broken into a truck and stolen a bag of dog poo valued at $1.
There are so many questions.
“He broke in thought the driver’s side door, the victim told police. “He tried to stealing the truck by breaking the plastic around the steeeing column. But he couldn’t make it start. So he look around the bed and stole my bag of dog feces.”
The Des Moins Register says the dog faeces are valued at $1.
Two window cleaners are in the cradle at the top of China’s second tallest building. Outside the 91st floor of Shanghai’s World Financial Center it’s windy. Very windy.

One more reason to mistrust the Easter Bunny: Police in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, parade one Easter Bunny stuffed with $30,000 worth of meth.
If there was one holiday creation you’d suspect of drugs dealing, it would be the Easter Bunny.
Tahlequah Police Chief Nate King tells media:
“We’ve intercepted narcotics in the mail before. The Easter Bunny I thought was a strange touch. A hole was cut into the bottom of the rabbit and we found quite the surprise waiting inside. There were two condoms and meth stuffed inside the rabbit. It’s not the prize egg that we want in Tahlequah. We didn’t know who at the home would receive the meth or if they knew what they were receiving. We got a plain white van, drove to the residence and served an anticipatory warrant on the resident.”
To Domodedovo Airport near Moscow, Russia, were officials have pulled over a woman returning from Indonesia via Qatar.She has failed to decalre the 55 different breeds of snake, 35 lizards, turtles, six lemurs, two monkeys, two baby crocodiles and a baby leopard.

The traveller says she bought the animals for $200 an Indonesian market.
The two baby crocodiles were dead. The rest are in an animal shelter.
The Daily Mail’s story on the four-year-old girl who only eats yoghurt is a disappointment. The child from Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire, will only eat strawberry Petit-Filous. She eats 30 pots of the stuff every day. If given any other make of yoghurt, she “bursts into tears”. She “becomes hysterical” when offered solid food.
All good stuff that other parents can judge, mock and sink their teeth into.
But our beef is with the Mail because the child who only eats cheesy yoghurts is called – get this – Emilie-Lea. Yeah, as in Dairy Lea. C,mon, Daily Mail, sort your headlines out:
There’s something in the air over Palmerah, a sub-district of West Jakarta. And that something is the smoke from a 3.3-ton heap of marijuana.
When masked police torched the seized mega-stash they didn’t bank on what the smoke would do to air quality. As the cloud drifted over the town, locals got a free blowback.
It turns out that you can dope an entire town without any need for mirrrors.

Samuel Beckett, eat your heart out. Two men in a barren landscape have not sat around bickering as they wait for nothing; they have planted 10,000 trees over ten years. Jia Haixia is blind. Jia Wenqi is a double amputee. And rather than sitting around doing nothing they have set about enlivening the barren landscape around Yeli Village in northeastern China.
