Poo in curry wife: Like “an episode of Desperate Housewives”.

In Desperate Housewives, food, law and order, marriage, UK, Uncategorized on November 1, 2007 at 11:49 pm

When 47 year old Jill Martin suspected her husband was having an affair with another woman, she decided to strike back with the oldest trick in the book. Dog poo curry. 

…after placing the dinner in front of her husband Donald and watching him start to eat it, Martin had burst out laughing.

At first she claimed she had laced the dish with arsenic but then confessed she had added dog excrement instead.

The court heard that the couple had been married for 21 years but in recent years their relationship “had hit an all time low”.

Speaking in her defence, solicitor Terry Gallanagh said that the case was like ‘an episode of Desperate Housewives’.

Yummmm….

Following her arrest for the incident, Martin was banned from going anywhere near her husband or their home in Scotland.

The couple have now begun divorce proceedings.

How romantic.

Bananas!

A man who swallowed a necklace that he stole from a woman when he was caught by police has been forced to eat at least 50 bananas.

A 35-year-old Indian man was nabbed by local residence in Kolkata. He initially denied having swallowed the 45,000 rupee necklace, but x-rays showed it was indeed in his stomach.

Police threatened to put Sheikh Mohsin under the knife if he didn’t go along with his new banana diet.

“Mohsin was initially reluctant to eat the bananas, but we told him that doctors would cut him open to recover the chain. He immediately wolfed down the bananas at one go,” said the deputy commissioner of police.

However, the bananas did not work. So police then decided they would cook up a feast for Mohsin, feeding him rice, chicken and bread.

After a long wait, the necklace was finally retrieved.

Hilarious!

Meanwhile, in other crime and banana related news….

Authorities in California, USA, are on the hunt for a bank robber nicknamed The Banana Bandit.

The man has been hitting a number of banks since May, and robbed his tenth on Friday. He earned the name from media because he was casually eating a banana when robbing a bank May 16; he has also been seen eating potato chips in another robbery.

And now, for the crazy adventures of 80’s British cartoon superhero…Banana Man!

“Vegansexual”: No sex for meat eaters!

Sex?
‘Yes please! But not with you carnivores’

Talk about taking the term ‘you are what you eat’ a little too far.

A new phenomenon among vegetarians in New Zealand takes a very extreme stance on that concept, because apparently an exchange of body fluids with meat eaters would violate the philosophies of Veganism.

Annie Potts from Canterbury University in New Zealand has coined the term “Vegansexual” to describe people, “who do not eat any meat or animal products, and who choose not to be sexually intimate with non-vegan partners whose bodies, they say, are made up of dead animals.”

In her research she quizzed 157 Kiwis on issues ranging from battery chickens to sexual preferences.

New Zealand media reports:

Many female respondents described being attracted to people who ate meat, but said they did not want to have sex with meat-eaters because their bodies were made up of animal carcasses.

“It’s a whole new thing – I have not come across it before,” said Potts.

One vegan respondent from Christchurch said: “I believe we are what we consume, so I really struggle with bodily fluids, especially sexually.”

Another Christchurch vegan said she found non-vegans attractive, but would not want to be physically close to them.

“I would not want to be intimate with someone whose body is literally made up from the bodies of others who have died for their sustenance,” she said.

Christchurch vegan Nichola Kriek has been married to her vegan husband, Hans, for nine years.

She would not describe herself as vegansexual, but said it would definitely be a preference.

She could understand people not wanting to get too close to non-vegan or non-vegetarians.

“When you are vegan or vegetarian, you are very aware that when people eat a meaty diet, they are kind of a graveyard for animals,” she said.

Being fat will soon be ‘normal’ in America, study.

Fat the new skinny?

Fashion USA 2015?

 

Forget your worries about Global Warming, Al Qaeda, Bird Flu, hurricanes, earthquakes and stupid Presidents…

Apparently, America is eating itself to death. Yep, that fat epidemic we all keep hearing about is set to define our era like the plague defined the middle ages.

And just when you thought it was safe to take that next trip to McDonalds, they come out with this!

Scientists and researchers from the Johns Hopkins University have concluded that if Americans keep stacking the pounds on at the current rate of pace, 75% of people in the good old US of A will be overweight in just 8 years time.

That compares to 66% of US adults considered overweight in 2004, says The Daily Mail:

“Obesity is a public health crisis. If the rate of obesity and overweight continues at this pace, by 2015, 75 per cent of adults and nearly 24 per cent of U.S. children and adolescents will be overweight or obese,” Dr. Youfa Wang, who led the study, said in a statement.

 They defined adult overweight and obesity using a standard medical definition called body mass index. People with a BMI of 25 or above are considered overweight, while those with BMIs of 30 or above are obese and at serious risk of heart disease, diabetes and some cancers.

The report comes as 11 of America’s largest food and beverage companies agreed to take the token step of ‘limiting’ junk food advertising during children’s TV shows.
Meanwhile, in other fat news, Mexican Manuel Uribe Garza, otherwise known as the fattest man in the world, will undergo surgery in Italy, according to ABCnews.com:

Italian surgeon Giancarlo DeBernardinis told Agence France-Presse, “We will hold a meeting in the coming days to work out the details of the hospitalization and to prepare the operating theater and the appropriate surgical tools.”
Uribe drew worldwide attention when he appeared on the Televisa television network in January.

For the past five years, Uribe has been bedridden. He keeps a television and a computer he uses to update his Web site near his iron bed.

“People think that I can eat a whole cow, but it’s not just overeating, it’s also a hormonal problem,” Uribe said

Manuel has reportedly weighed in at 1,235 pounds, that’s about 560 kilograms for metric lovers like me.

Good luck to him, I say!

And good eating to you all.
