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

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.

A farm in England is offering to marry your pets.

The BBC reports

The ceremonies, which include a cake and a minister, cost from £100, about US$100.

It is thought to be one of the first services of its kind in the country.

The farm’s owners said they had already booked in seven animal weddings at the venue.

Sarie Goldstraw, who runs the farm, said: “One of the things that I’ve found is that if people are getting married and they both have a dog then if they are all going to have to live together, which includes the dogs.

“We therefore have a service to celebrate those people’s unions and that of the pets also in the home.”

Perhaps these two dogs, making headlines recently, would like to get married?

I wonder what their babies would look like ?

Better yet, I wonder if Tori Spelling (“90210”) will be carrying out the ceremonies?

That’s right, she’s an ordained minister now, apparently…

US media reports: 

The actress says she completed the program online and already performed her first wedding ceremony at the bed and breakfast she owns with her husband.

After the ceremony she said it was the scariest thing she’s ever done.

Maybe I should change the blog name to The Scary News!

Colourful wedding ceremony- Boa is nicknamed Xi Shun or “The Mast”

He had been searching for love for about a decade when he came across sales clerk Xia Shujun, the two had only spent one month together before they decided to get hitched.

Bao Xishu, a herdsman, is a huge celebrity in China, and has travelled to various parts of the world to be greeted with rock-star like crowds. But he isn’t just famous for his height.

Last year authorities in his homeland called him up to achieve something only a superhero could do, using his 1.06 meter long arms to reach into the stomachs of two dolphins who were dieing after they swallowed plastic.

The wedding was attended by hundreds of people and sponsored by more than a dozen companies hoping to cash in on the attention. Those new found capitalist Chinese sure know how to get in on the act.

At 29 Bao’s new wife stands at 1.68 meters (5ft 6) and at 29 is half her husbands age.

Xia said she was madly in love.

“You need to have feelings for someone to be in love. Even if he is a big shot, you can’t love him without feelings,” Xia said.

Mnaaa, makes you all warm and fuzzy inside….

Superhero Bao?

   Big Ben indeed!
