BIBLE basher of the day is Evelyn Mills Moore, 57, of Saddlebrook Court in Kings Mountain, North Carolina, who hit a woman “numerous times about her body with a closed fist and striking her with a Bible about her left arm”.

Only Mills has been charged. Jesus, whom she most likely believes to be with her at all times, evaded justice…

flying witch banned

THE Star Early Edition has news for flying witches:

Witches flying broomsticks in Swaziland above 150m will be subject to arrest and a hefty fine of R500 000, civil aviation authorities said yesterday. Witches’ broomsticks are considered similar to any heavier-than-air transportation device that is airborne. The statute also forbids toy helicopters and children’s kites from ascending too high into the country’s airspace.

Civil Aviation Authority marketing and corporate affairs director Sabelo Dlamini advises:

“A witch on a broomstick should not fly above the (150m) limit.”

Witches flying below 150m are exempt but are advised to watch out for gun fire.

London’s Muriel Street become Leirum Street in Islington Council’s back-to-front thinking

leirum street

NO-ONE lives inMuriel Street in Barnsbury, north London. Muriel Street has been wiped from the map. In its place is Leirum Street. That’s Muriel spelt backwards.

An Islington spokesman assures us that this is not a cock up in the Letraset section:

“The name change for a small section of Muriel Street – which is cut in two by the estate – was requested by the tenants/residents association. This was to make it less confusing for emergency vehicles and other visitors. Some residents thought it was a cock-up, but it was a quite deliberate decision. I don’t know exactly who chose the name.”

Once upon a time, street names would reflect the the place’s history or aspirations. Lerium Street is a place best viewed from a passing car’s rear view mirror.

Smoker assaulted cop to kick her habit

Etta Lopez

ETTA Lopez, 31, assaulted a Sacramento police officer as part of her steps to stop smoking.

Deputy Matt Campoy tells us:

“It was totally unprovoked. All of a sudden she stepped into me and slapped me in the face.”

An expert in the form of Kimberly Bankston-Lee, of the anti-smoking group Breathe California adds:

“If it led somebody to doing something like that to quit, that lets us know in the community that we have a real problem.”

Indeed. Time to ease up on the anti-smoking routine. It’s driving people nuts…

Car hit by flying toilet

toilet flying

DRIVERS will testify that driving itself, is pretty cool. The freedom of the open road, listening to tunes in your car and being free to go anywhere is one of life’s best pleasures. However, it is constantly spoiled by everything else.

You have to feel for the poor sod who was driving around, only to find that their wheels were hit by a flying toilet.

The driver was on her way to school in Thorndike, Maine, when out of nowhere, he motor was thronked by a portable toilet that didn’t have any business travelling through the sky.

Local chief deputy Jeff Trafton said she tried to swerve away from the large object, which flew out of a delivery truck. Ronnie Furrow may have a brilliant name, but he’s also responsible for the flying latrine, and has been issued a summon for not properly securing his load.

Mercifully, the toilet in question was confirmed as being clean, reports BDN Maine.

Imagine if it wasn’t. The teenagers turning up at school looking like a silage equivalent of Carrie would’ve ensured a bullying that would’ve lasted the rest of her waking days.

Giovanni Rebolledo copyRONNIE Biggs never did make it to Colombia. Had he have done, the Great Train Robber might have evaded capture by posing as Ronata Smalls, a busty woman with a keen interest in train spotting. Anoraks might well tremble at such a vision of dream womanhood. Giovanni Rebolledo did make it to Colombia.

After escaping from prison, Mr Rebolledo pulled on a dress and invested in breast augmentation surgery. He became Rosalinda.

What was on the beer? Any ideas? And what does this say about the five-second rule?

OVER in Shanxi, China, a demolition crew performed something of a bizarre, wrecking crew miracle. The demolished tonnes of concrete AROUND a car, leaving it without a scratch.

The demolition team had been waiting for the driver of the car to return to the area so they could crack on with work. However, after 10 days, they were so impatient that they couldn’t put it off any longer.

SOME people are thundering bozos and will do anything to get noticed. Take for example, the gasping simpleton that works for a New York real estate agency called Rapid Realty. RR are offering their staff a pay rise if they get a tattoo of the company logo. (On your arse? – ed)

In exchange for carrying a logo of a corporation, you get a 15% wage increase. Astonishingly, 40 members of staff have already taken up the offer.

One member of staff says it isn’t about the money. Robert Trezza says:

“I think it’s a good opportunity to show commitment to a company that makes going to work fun every day.”

HENRY Gribbohm, 30, swapped his life savings ($2,600) for a huge stuffed banana with dreadlocks. He’s gone with $300 cash and his daughter to a Manchester,  New Hampshire, carnival. He played Tubs of Fun in hope of winning an Xbox Kinect. He had to toss balls into a tub. Make the ball stay in the tub and win. Simple.

But it wasn’t. He lost $300. Then he went home to get the rest of his cash. He then set about losing it all.

“You’re expecting the kids to win a few things, let the kids have a good time. It just didn’t turn out that way . It’s not possible that it wasn’t rigged.”

Artists massive inflatable turd deflates in high winds

Hong Kong Inflation Art

THE 15.5 metre-tall Complex Pile, a work by Paul McCarthy, has run. The massive inflatable pile of poo has been let down. It lies like a brown smear on the grasses of West Kowloon. The neat and tidy packet has become a meandering run of diarrhea. A spokeswoman for the West Kowloon Cultural District investigates:

“A small hole was discovered on the surface of the piece. We are doing our best to fix it and hopefully we can inflate the artwork as soon as possible. We believe it is because of the weather.”

It must have been something in the water…
