1. A farmer in Devon claimed his phone had disappeared inside the back end of one of his cows when he’d been using the torch on his iPhone whilst assisting the cow during calving. The phone later made an appearance, but was damaged.

2. A lady in her early 40s from Nottingham claimed that she’d baked her Nokia 6303i into a Victoria Sponge she’d been making for her daughter’s birthday. It didn’t endure the heat of gas mark 5.


Have you ever wondered what it would be like to jump into a frozen swimming pool? Well this man did… and something tells us he won't be doing it again.

That's what happened in Michigan recently when a man was preparing his squirrel meal by removing the animal’s fur using a propane torch.

As a result of the blaze, which started on the third floor, twenty people were evacuated from the building as flames spread to the roof.

It's not known whether the man had enjoyed flame-grilled squirrel before, but the chances are he won't be trying that particular delicacy again any time soon.


This man apparently got a little too close to two stags which were facing up to each other Bushy Park in London … and ended up having to climb a tree to escape them.


One of the testosterone-fuelled stags chased the man who tried hiding on the other side of the tree to the stag, before deciding the best idea was to climb out of its way.

An elderly couple in Bedford received a visit from police after unwittingly growing a ginormous cannabis plant in their back garden.

Officers had been called to the house after the pot plant was spotted over a fence, growing in the back garden.

It turned out the pensioners had bought the plant as a small shrub from a car boot sale and carefully tended to it until it was the luxuriant specimen shown in this photo.

That's right, this being 2012 the police officers Tweeted a photo of the plant … but don't try to find it, it's already been seized by cops.
