Serbia

“Only an idiot would jump into the bear cage.”

A director of the Belgrade Zoo discusses the half eaten body of a 23-year-old man found with the bears. It appears the man had stumbled in from the grounds of a nearby beer festival being enjoyed by the local population. Several mobile phones were found inside the cage, as well as bricks, stones and beer cans. Go figure.

UAE

“In 2015 I will be 68 years old and will have 100 children.”

Abdul Rahman, a one legged Emirati father of 78, talks up his hopes of hitting the magic century mark. The 60-year-old man whore currently has 15 wives, but wants to knock up at least 2 more in the next few years. Apparently Islam allows men to marry up to four women at a time. Abdul uses government funds to support the family. You can probably thank the oil for that.

Australia

“I’d say it’s probably been playing, or it may be even a sexual sort of thing.”

A police detective from Queensland state speculates as to why a woman, who had been given a camel for her 60th birthday, was crushed to death by the pet at her family’s sheep station/ranch. It apparently knocked her to the ground, laid on top of her, and displayed a suspicious mating behaviour. Eeep.

Finland

“It’s particularly significant because well defined tooth imprints were found on the gum.”

A professor to a 23-year-old archaeology student discusses the find of what is being described as the world’s oldest piece of chewing gum, estimated at 5,000 years, yum! The student for the Scotland was on a dig centred in an area frequented by Neolithic era humans when she came across the lump of birch bark tar. She also found an amber ring and an arrow head. How interesting.

UK

“The defendant pointed the vibrator in the bag at Mr Vakani and warned him to back off.”

A Leicester court prosecutor details to a jury how a man held up a betting shop using his girlfriend’s vibrator as a weapon of intimidation. The manager of the shop handed over more than £600 in cash to the man, who the British media have dubbed The “Rampant Rabbit robber”. He was sentenced to 5 years prison.

What can I say to that? Sex toys as weapons?… it’s a crazy world people, it’s a crazy world.

Around the World with….

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’.

Swedish design chain Ikea wants you to sleep in-store over night!

Consumerism gone crazy?

Haven’t yet finished the shopping you wanted at Ikea, and the store looks like it’s about to close. Oh no! Guess you better head for the exits…Or do you?

No need to worry folks, you can stay in the store overnight, not a problem.

The Guardian reports:

“It will be like an alternative hostel,” said Frode Ullebust, a company spokesman. “There will be the regular dormitory with lots of beds stacked up together. We will also have a bridal suite, with a round bed and a hanging chandelier, and the luxury suite, where customers can enjoy breakfast in bed.”.

Every night the 30 customers permitted to sleep over will be able to stock up on meatballs, Norwegian salmon and cranberry mousse as Ikea is offering free dinner and breakfast. “The shop opens at 10am so if they are lazy, people might get woken up by shoppers testing out their mattresses,” Ullebust said.

Customers will also be able to take their bedsheets home. “It’s a nice souvenir,” he added. “We will also give them bathrobes with the Ikea Hostel logo on, and some slippers, so they won’t get cold at night.”

Now that’s just plain awesome. How much for the luxury suite I should wonder? Sounds like one hell of an idea for a honeymoon.

The crazy new idea will be tested in two Oslo, Norway warehouses. No word yet on the concept catching on in other parts of the world.

Sure hope it does!

It all begs the question, where did this sleep over Ikea idea come from?

Well, I’ve got a sneaking suspicion it must have been from this recent Aussie comedy sketch…

Win your wifes’ weight in beer!

The 12th annual Wife Carrying Championships have been held in rural Finland.

The race commemorates Rosvo-Ronkainen, Finland’s answer to Robin Hood, who made men who wanted to join his gang run through a forest carrying heavy sacks on their backs. In the modern version, contestants race along a 250-metre track, tackling a pool and several hurdles, carrying women, to whom they are not necessarily married, on their backs.

Uusorg, who had Inga Klauson upside down with her legs around his neck, finished in 61.7 seconds – not quite beating the record of 56.9 seconds set by his brother Margo Uusorg last year. The winning couple received plasma televisions and Klauson’s weight – 49 kilograms – in beer.
