Naked sleepwalking on the rise.

In 2007, Odd News, UK, Weird News on October 26, 2007 at 4:18 pm

According to British hotel company Travelodge, incidents of sleepwalking in hotels rose seven-fold in the past year, and 95 percent of the culprits are scantily clad men.

Which means men staying in hotels in Britain have serious psychological disorders, or there is something more sinister happening.

To manage the steep increase in naked sleepwalking incidents, Travelodge has decided to implement a new training program to deal with the phenomenon.

One tip in the company’s newly released “sleepwalkers guide” tells staff to keep towels handy at the front desk in case a customer’s dignity needs preserving.

The company said naked wanderers often ask receptionists such questions as “Where’s the bathroom?,” “Do you have a newspaper?” or “Can I check out, I’m late for work?”

A Wee Problem! Dwarf Gets Penis Stuck On Vacuum Cleaner.

In Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Freak Show, News, Odd News, Scotland, UK, video, Weird News, World on August 21, 2007 at 7:57 pm

Don’t try this at home….

8789d8b2-cb41-7b3a-aa7fd385c1c11c1e.jpg A wee little sucker! 

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.

Festival web site here!

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!

Funeral Procession Pileup? Superman? 4Real? Crazy happenings in New Zealand..

In 2007, New Zealand, News, Odd News, Tool of the Week, Uncategorized, Weird News, World on August 9, 2007 at 11:29 am

 First it was the 7-legged-lamb, and the crazy stories out of New Zealand keep on coming…

 nz_terra_23oct2002.jpg

It’s the land of the long white cloud, a destination for thrill seekers, a country with a do nothing bird as it’s national symbol, and a land famous for its natural beauty featured in the Lord of The Rings blockbuster movie trilogy. But for all its pluses, well, there sure are a lot of crazy people in New Zealand.

At first, I really did think it was the negative bias I hold towards Kiwis. Given the natural rivalry between my homeland (Australia) and our English speaking neighbour to the south east.

But then, there it is the evidence….

4realmain.jpg

Pat and Sheena Wheaton are the proud parents of a healthy baby boy, who they named……

” 4Real ”

Yes that’s right they named their baby boy 4Real.

Yes, I am for real!

However, when they went to register the name with the New Zealand government authorities, they were denied the ability to use the name because it included a digit.

So instead of taking the decision on the chin, getting on with life, and giving their boy a normal name like Michael or Chris or Apple, not Apple, they decided on a name just as ridiculous.

Superman.

Yes, I am being for real.

They want to call their boy Superman, as in look up in the sky, is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it’s…

And this time, they will be allowed to have the name. Because it doesn’t include a digit.

“It doesn’t make a lot of sense: I can call him Superman but I can’t call him 4Real,” Pat Wheaton told New Zealand media.

But despite the ineligibility of 4Real, the babies’ family will continue to refer to him as 4Real, and let Superman Wheaton be the name displayed on his birth certificate, drivers licence, school bag, etc.

“If we have to register him for the Government or the system or whatever, then we’ll register him as Superman . . . to friends and family he’ll stay 4Real.”

Pat even said that the controversy surrounding his choice of name, which got heavy coverage here on the www, was hard to take.

“I did go online and Google some of the stories and as tough as I am, it does get to you, but there’s no point getting upset.

“It could be a 10-year-old school girl making those comments.”

Well, Mr Weaton I hope your reading, (AND NO I’m not a 10-year-old school girl, although I probably could be.)

Because I would just like to say to you, that…… you’re a dickhead!

In fact, you’re such a dickhead, I’m even awarding you and you’re wife the most stupendous of all awards…

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Weaton…

You’ve earned yourselves

Funeral turns into car disaster!

Next up in our Crazy News double of Crazy happenings in the nation of New Zealand…..

This time its the Kiwi police force, and we go to the town of Te Anau.

An internal investigation is being launched by police authorities there, after a female officer decided she would pull over a funeral hearse as it lead 80-100 cars, creating chaos.

It all started when the officer parked her police vehicle on the other side of the road and gestured to the funeral director, who was driving the hearse, to pull over. So he did.

But instead of serving and protecting the community, the policeman’s actions caused a car pileup!

“Here we are taking dad to the cemetery and we are all pulled over and there are accidents behind us. It was just like dominoes. People go to a funeral to send off a good mate and a good father and this bloody happens,” said the son of the dead man.

Amazing!

The pileup involved multiple cars, and the policewoman even had to take a number of the mourners back into town.

What is going on New Zealand? What is going on….

And what’s all this stuff about this strange thing called the Haka? 

Scary stuff, that is!
