The Crazy News: Quick Quotes. 

UK 

“It’s beginning to sink in, we are going on holiday first…and then think about what we are going to do for the rest of our lives.”

A British man tells a news conference about how he won the lottery twice. He thought he had been one of four people to share in 2.4 million pounds, when he realised he had another ticket in his wallet, taking his winnings to nearly a million pounds.

Columbia

“If you get a call telling you to turn off your handset, contact the authorities.”

A local Bogota news program advises viewers after a wave of incidents involving telephone users being duped by criminals who pose as phone operators and instruct users to turn off their handsets just long enough to demand ransom from their families.

Italy

“My son does not respect me, he doesn’t tell me where he’s going in the evenings and returns home late…He is never happy with the food I make and always complains. This can’t go on.”

The Sicilian mother of a (get this) 61-year-old man has cut off his allowance and hauled him to the police station because he stayed out late.

Apparently most Italian men still live at home late into their 30s, enjoying their “mamma’s” cooking, washing and ironing. You learn something new every day!

Nepal

“He offered special worship at the temple this morning. After the worship, he chopped off his right hand and offered to the temple of Goddess Kali”

23-year-old Hindu man gives his hand the chop.

Finland

“It removes the foil carefully, eats the chocolate and leaves the store with the toy.”

A manager in Helsinki explains how a very naughty squirrel with a sweet tooth has been stealing kinder surprises on a regular basis from his grocery shop.

He’s even named the little devil ‘Kinder-squirrel’.

The Crazy News: Only in America

So many weird and wacky stories come out of the US every day, but this is the craziest of them so far.

US media reports:

A political fundraiser in the US state of New Hampshire aims to promote gun ownership in America by letting supporters fire powerful military-style weapons — from Uzi submachine guns to M-16 rifles.

The Manchester Republican Committee is inviting party members and their families to a “Machine Gun Shoot” where, for $25, supporters can spend a day trying out automatic weapons, said organizer Jerry Thibodeau.

“It’s a fun day. It’s a family day,” said Thibodeau of the August 5 event. “It’s quite exciting.”

A family fun day of gun shooting madness! Good fun for young and old.

I mean, young children with automatic weapons designed to kill on mass, what harm could it do?

Now excuse me while I go throw up…

And now for some more family entertainment, Playboy models with automatic machine guns.

Family throws out grandmother with the garbage.

In 2007, Family, Futurama, Human Interest, India, Odd News, Society, Uncategorized, World News on July 19, 2007 at 4:20 pm

As in most cultures, families in India are very important part of life.

So when I found this article, I thought it was a rather bizarre moment in family disunity.

A family squabble over who should look after an ill relative has left a grandmother dumped in a rotting heap of garbage, The Hindustan Times of India reports:

A local couple, Periaswamy and Mohanasundari, found the semi-paralyzed Chinnammal Palaniappan. She told them she had been living with the family of the youngest of her three daughters, who would quarrel incessantly over who should take care of their infirm mother.

On Saturday night, Sarasa, the daughter, allegedly told her two sons to take their grandmother to a spot from where she could never return. The boys bundled Chinnammal into an autorickshaw and threw her on the dump.

Crazy Solution:

Perhaps someone could invent some sort of Futurama style old people facility.

Just a thought….
