Dopey Scotish dwarf Dan Blackner, otherwise known as Captain Dan the Demon Dwarf, was rushed to hospital after practicing an on stage act at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

The crazy act involved the tiny fellow towing a vacuum cleaner with his member. An act with obviously hilarious consequences.

When Dan noticed that a part of the suction pipe had torn, he decided to use some glue to fix the problem. Instead of waiting the recommended 20 minutes for the glue to dry, he misread the recommendations and went in for a go after just 20 seconds.

Embarrasing?

Dan’s manager had to drive him to the hospital for emergency penis removal.

“I don’t know what she must have thought. She just sat there trying not to laugh. But I just felt like crying.” Dan said.

“It was the most embarrassing moment of my life. When I was wheeled into a packed A&E with a Hoover attached to my willy I just wished the ground could swallow me up.”

“Luckily the nurses saw me right away so the embarrassment was short lived.”

“It was too painful to free myself and I was terrified that if I pulled too hard I’d rip it off. The very thought left me in a cold sweat.”

His doctor added: “It was one of the most bizarre accidents I’ve ever seen — and I work with a freak show. He phoned me in a panic. When he said what happened, I didn’t believe him. Luckily the nurses soon freed him.”

Freak Out!

 As The Crazy News reported a few days ago, new video evidence caught by an Englishman has stirred renewed interest in the existence of the fabled Loch Ness monster.

 Something in the water….

And now some in the UK are cashing in on Nessie fever, offering a 1 million pound reward to anyone who can prove the actual existence of the monster.

Bookmakers William Hill are supplying up to 50,000 instant cameras to fans attending a Loch Ness pop festival in Scotland next weekend.

“We are hoping the one million pound bounty will help to solve one of the great enigmas of modern times,” William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said.

The winner will have to offer proof that satisfies experts at London’s Natural History Museum.

The bookmakers are confident the bounty will not be claimed at the Rock Ness music festival on June 9 and 10 — they are offering odds of 250-1 about it happening in 2007

The Real Loch Ness Monster Found?

A 55 year old Enlgish lab technician claims to have captured the most compelling evidence for the existence of the fabled Loch Ness Monster in history.

“I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this jet black thing, about 45-feet (15 meters) long, moving fairly fast in the water”, said Gordon Holmes who captured a few seconds of shaky video.

The video was captured last Saturday at the world famous loch, where Holmes was carrying out experiments. Holmes took his tape to local experts for further scrutiny.

Legends of Scottish monsters date back to one of the founders of the Christian church in Scotland, St Columba, who wrote of them in about 565AD.

 Meanwhile the BBC yesterday reported that local business leaders from around the Loch Ness Region are working to have the 230 meter deep Loch listed as a World Heritage site by the United Nations.

Destination Loch Ness believes its bid fits four of the 10 criteria set by Unesco to qualify. Categories include that it is an outstanding example of land-use, is of exceptional natural beauty and represents major stages of earth’s history.

 Barbow the goose

A goose has smashed the record fastest time for a North Sea crossing from Scotland to Norway. Barbow the Barnacle Goose made the trip in 5 hours maintaining a speed of about 75 miles per hour.

The previous quickest crossing was by fellow barnacle goose Godzilla who made the journey in about eight hours.

Barbow is part of a project to tag and track the travels of 10 migrating geese.
