275x250.jpgA Dutch brewer has revealed what they claim is the world's strongest beer -- with a whopping 60%ABV.

That's even stronger than 'The End of History' by Scottish firm BrewDog, which was named the world's strongest beer with 55%ABV just seven days ago.

Brewery 't Koelschip say their new "Start the Future" beer is so strong because because of the way it's brewed in three parts and later combined.

Initially they say they will produce just 50 litres of the strong stuff, which will be sold for £29 per 330ml bottle.

However they warn would-be drinkers the brew should not be consumed like a 'normal' beer and instead treated more like a spirit. Yes, they've heard about you. 

275x250.jpg Pampered pussies could soon be enjoying better holidays than their owners after a luxury hotel opened which is purr-fect for felines.

Bosses at The Luxury Cat Hotel in Hertfordshire say they pride themselves on offering cats with the ultimate holiday when their owner jets off abroad.

Each cat at the hotel gets its own luxury heated chalet which has an exercise area, themed decoration and jazz music playing via a £5,000 sound system.

There's also an‘A La Cat’ food menu which includes dishes such as fresh tuna and all come served on silver platters and bone china plates… something to think about as you sit on an EasyJet flight.

275x250.jpgThe world's new strongest beer has gone on sale… in controversial bottles made using the bodies of dead animals.

Brewery BrewDog's 'The End of History' beer - which has a 55% ABV and sells for £500 per bottle - is the strongest and most expensive beer in the world.

It's a blond Belgian ale infused with nettles and juniper berries to give unique taste.

But it will be the bottle which stands out for most people, they're encased in the bodies of animals which have been specially produced by a taxidermist.

Stoats, squirrels and hare have been used… and just in case it wasn't odd enough already, some of then are dressed in eccentric outfits.

275x250.jpgIt looks like a car wash, but this 'cow wash' machine is actually the latest must-have gadget for farmers wanting to boost milk production.

Designed by Swedish firm DeLaval, the swinging cow brush was created to act as a 'self grooming' device for cows to help keep themselves clean, healthier and happier.

This is because a happy cow is said to produce as much as 3.5 percent more milk and therefore be much more valuable for the farmer.

The device works by starting to rotate when a cow makes contact with it, and then spinning at a speed which is pleasurable for the cow as it moo-ves under it.

Given the success of cow wash machines - more than 30,000 have been sold - it can't be long until the cows also start getting a pre-milking pedicure and makeover.

275x250.jpgIndonesia's top Islamic body is set to rule on whether Muslims are allowed to drink a rare coffee which is harvested from the faeces of civet cats.

Kopi Luwak is one of the most expensive coffees in the world, due mostly to the odd production method which includes the coffee being eaten by a civet cat first.

Lucky workers then have the job of sorting through civet cat poop and hunting for the hard beans which have fermented in the cat's stomach, before roasting their harvest.

For years the drink has been a delicacy, prized to the tune of £250 per kg for its smooth taste but now local Islamic leaders are considering whether to forbid followers from drinking it.

It is understood the possible ban centres around whether the beans are cleaned before they are ground. Wait, what… sometimes the poop covered beans aren't washed?

275x250.jpg An ice cream van for pampered pooches is opening in London -- with bizarre icy flavours including gammon and chicken.

Scientists created the ice cream treats to be ideal for doggy tastes by finding the perfect combination of temperature, texture and taste for them.

Now the K99 van will appear at parks across London over the summer, starting with the Boomerang Pets Party in Regents Park this Saturday.

While bosses appear to have planned the 99p charity donation doggie delights down the the smallest detail there's one thing they forget… dogs have nowhere to carry change.

275x250.jpgTopped with pink icing and copious sprinkles, it's safe to say most cupcakes are not the most manly of snacks, but all that is about to change.

A New York firm call the Butch Bakery has given the humble cupcake a manly makeover so that blokes won't feel embarrassed munching one as they walk down the street.

Rather than delicate and girly-looking pale frosting, the cakes are topped with camouflage inspired chocolate disks on a layer of icing.

Flavours such as strawberry and raspberry have also been ditched in favour of options including beer, whisky and peanut butter.

Makers say 500 of the £2.50 cupcakes are currently flying off the shelves each week… though they admit most of the buyers are still women.


275x250.jpgA bizarre bra has gone on sale which is designed to help women hide a bottle of wine in their underwear during a night out.

The 'Wine Rack Bra' looks like a normal sports bra, but actually holds 750ml (an entire bottle of wine) inside the cups.

In addition to giving wearers bigger-looking boobs, there's also a straw which allows them to covertly dink the contents.

Makers claim the 'Wine Rack Bra' is perfect for sneaking booze into movies, concerts, sports events and clubs.

However, users should consider that while a fluid filled bra can boost breast size from an A to a D -- the more drunk you get the smaller your boobs will appear.

275x250.jpgThe humble jacket potato has been given a gastronomic make-over by a foodie chef who is selling them for £40 each.

Ben Kingdon says his 'Tuxedo spud' creation - which is topped with a spoonful of luxurious Italian caviar - justifies the cost with an unbeatable taste.

It comes served on a wooden board with roasted vine tomatoes and features creme fraiche, lemon, chives and spring onions in addition to the pricey caviar.

And bosses at Cary Arms, in Torquay, Devon - which launched the dish to weeks ago - say several people have already splashed the cash on the lavish spud.

Customers are described as being "affluent people wanting to try something different" -- we have a gold-plated tin of baked beans with their name on.

275x250.jpgSure it looks like a luxurious leather chair, perfect for lazy summer afternoons, but this sofa is actually made out of CONCRETE.

The wacky couch - based on the model of the iconic 'Chesterfield' - was created with nearly 100kg of specially-mixed ultra fine cement by Steve Jones.

He took a mould from a genuine couch and casting it into the hollow concrete sofa in a process which took a week to complete.

Steve now hopes the 7x3ft concrete creation will go on sale at garden centres across the country and insists to potential buyers it is comfortable.

The authenticity of the design has even seen a concrete 50p coin stuck down the back of the concrete cushions, really.
