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!

 Scroll down for Glacier Surfing, dude!

Back in June it was all going off in Amsterdam, and this weekend it was a naked rendezvous with a glacier in Switzerland for famous photographer Spencer Tunick.

Otherwise known as ‘The Naked Photographer’. (He’s not really known as that, but I’m coining the term regardless, such is the power of The Crazy News)

About 600 volunteer nudes braved the Aletsch glacier in the Valais region in southern Switzerland in a photo shoot aimed at drawing attention to the effects of global warming on the world’s glaciers.

Tunick said his photographs were both works of art and political statements.

“I will try to treat the body on two levels. On an abstract level, as if they were flowers or stones.

“I want my images to go more than skin-deep. I want the viewers to feel the vulnerability of their existence and how it relates closely to the sensitivity of the world’s glaciers,” New York native Tunick told media.

Glacier Surfing!

But not everyone is unhappy with the melting of the world’s glaciers.

Totally gnarly thrill seekers are taking advantage of the massive waves created by chunks of glacier falling into the ocean.

Surfers Garrett McNamara and Kealii Mamala posted this epic video on youtube after waiting for several hours at the Child’s Glacier, in south-central Alaska, for a slice of the glacier to give way, with totally awesome consequences.

They even have their own web site GlacierSurfing.com, and they say the phenomenon was first discovered by a photographer in 1995 when filming for IMAX movie

Surfs Up!

Global Warming is totally awesome, man!

You can’t run, but you can hide (up high), from Dog the Bounty Hunter.

In celebrity, Crazy news, Dog the Bounty Hunter, Duane Lee "Dog" Chapman, entertainment, Odd News, People, Uncategorized, USA, video, World on August 11, 2007 at 12:50 am

il01a3_b.jpg Doggy-Dog Dog…

Legendary, some would say a little crazy, celebrity bounty hunter Duane Lee “Dog” Chapman, is out with a new book on his eventful life. After accusations that he’s a womanizing racist and a hypocritical, “crack head,” the Dog says he wants to set the record strait.

Dog has a well defined macho, cavalier, rough and tumble, tough guy image. Yet, he also paints himself as a good family man, and says he is a ‘devout Christian, who sees his job as a way to help people find the right path’. He will stop at nothing to chase down the ‘bad guys’, and get ’em off the streets.

But other’s, including some members of his extended family, say his not the guy he makes out to be.

“Everyone is jumping on the ‘hate Dog’ bandwagon. They’re all lying. I’ve made a lot of enemies in my life, and I’m sorry I’ve done that. I guess if one person comes after you, they all come after you,” he angrily told the National Ledger.

The former convict also has a weak spot, and if he ever happens to be on your tale, you might want to find somewhere high up for safety.

Dog has a hardcore fear of heights.

When doing interviews for his book in New York City this week, he refused to head out to the roof of a 61-story building for a photo shoot.

So there it is, if ever being perused by bad ass Dog the Bounty Hunter, seek higher ground. Too easy.

In his biography, Chapman talks about his troubled childhood, joining a motorcycle gang, “run-ins” with the law, his five wives (juts like Mit Romney’s relatives), 12 children, and his devotion to God.

Once, after hunting crims in Mexico, he himself was arrested, as bounty hunting there is illegal (as it probably should be in all sane places).

He had gone there to capture Andrew Luster, a heir to the Max Factor cosmetics fortune who was wanted for rape in the US, not realizing what he was doing was an illegal act. Or did he?

He was taken into custody in September 2006 by US authorities, but luckily for him, the charges were dropped.

“I’m going to keep bounty hunting in the U.S., but not in Mexico,” he tells media.

He also said that a book on his life would help clear up misconceptions about his personality.

“I come across sometimes as not the average bloke so this will help people understand me.”

Bloke? Is not that word of the Aussie variety… Trying to sound fair dinkum, ey. (Note: Don’t say the phrase fair dinkum on any US domestic flights, you may be arrested and questioned, for meaning on that word, click here).

The Dog the Bounty Hunter reality TV series is shown in more than 100 counties.
