they did what?: October 2011 Archives

275x250.jpg A Zimbabwean man has reportedly told a court that he's in love with a prostitute who turned into donkey after he hired her.

Sunday Moyo -- who came up with the story after being charged with bestiality -- insists that his ass started off as a $25 per night hooker.

According to state media, Moyo told a court that one morning he woken up and was surprised to hear people accusing him of sleeping with a donkey.

He insists he'd paid $25 for the prostitute in the town of Zvishavane, and that she'd obviously transformed into a donkey during the night.

The 28-year-old added that he's still "seriously in love" with the animal… making the story like Pretty Woman crossed with something we once saw online.


We hope wherever Tyler Card is going to spend Halloween is offering a good prize for the best costume because he deserves it.

Not only has he fashioned a impressive camera costume -- complete with hanging lens cap -- but his outfit is also a fully functional camera.

That's because while the body of the camera is mostly made from cardboard, it contains a real Nikon DSLR in the centre.

This camera is triggered from the costume shutter, also setting off a large flash over his head and displaying images on the rear thanks to a LCD display from an old Dell laptop.


A muscleman in Syria has been showing off his strength by pulling a train which he claims weights more than 100 tonnes.

Adnan Ismail al-Awad performed the stunt Kadam train station near the Syrian capital Damascus by pulling the 20 meter-long train.

After strapping himself into a harness the strongman was able to move the weighty vehicle on the rusty track.

While the actual train only weights 2.5 tonnes -- which obviously even we could haul -- al-Awad said this was increased to 100 tonne because of the incline.


A father from Michigan has been arrested after drunkenly making his nine-year-old daughter his designated driver… and then boasting about it on camera.


Shawn Weimer has appeared in court after CCTV footage emerged showing the child parking his van at a petrol station in Brownstown Township.

Once inside the station Weimer started bragging about his daughter's driving saying: "Nine years old. Nine! Gas, brake, listen, we're leaving, and she's driving. I'm drunk."

Police were called and soon pulled the underage driver over, prompting her to ask why and add that she was "driving good".

275x250.jpg A food artist had set a new world record for building the world’s largest edible Taj Mahal sculpture… using curry ingredients from pilau rice and poppadoms to Bombay potatoes.

Prudence Staite spent more than 5 days creating the 3ft X 10ft X 5ft poppadom palace -- complete with the iconic white domes of the Taj Mahal made from Chipati bread.

Commissioned by Food Network UK to celebrate the launch of its new series Reza, Spice Prince of India the edible Taj Mahal sculpture, pilau rice creates the main structure of the Taj.

Poppadoms make up part of the garden with green chillies placed as trees and mango chutney adding more garden decoration… Mmm yummy garden decoration.


When a US police officer approached a driver who was sleeping at the side of the road he probably thought it would be one of the easier duties of his shift. it wasn't.

That's because the dozing driver was a former wrestling champion who woke up apparently thinking he was in the middle of a bout.

As this dash-cam footage shows, as Deputy Josh Barrett, a Greene County (Ohio) Sheriff's deputy, tried to wake the man he found himself on the wrong end of a flurry of punches.

Eventually the deputy was forced to reach for his taser and was eventually able to wrestler as he walked away. which we think would get him disqualified in the ring.

275x250.jpgLast year Alan Billis was a taxi driver in Torquay, now he's become the first person in 3,000 years to be mummified like Tutankhamum -- all in the name of a TV show.

Before his death from lung cancer in January, Alan had signed on to be part of a bizarre experiment in mummification, to be filmed for Channel 4.

In a bid to better understand how the ancient Egyptians were able to preserve pharaohs perfectly for millennia the 61-year-old's corpse was put through a variety of special techniques.

Scientists now think -- thanks to Alan -- they've been able to crack the mystery of mummification and say their finding turn much accepted wisdom about the process it's bandaged head.




If you've ever wanted to quit a job (and who hasn't) you are sure appreciate the style with which this man ended his employment.

Not content with handing is letter of resignation in at a Providence hotel, Joey took along his 19-piece band, the 'What Cheer? Brigade'.

So when his boss turned up and demanded to know what was happening, Joey simply gave him the letter and the band began to play.

Joey then proceeded to jubilantly walk out of the building as the rest of the band -- including people on a trombone, drums and tuba - played and walked behind him.

275x250.jpgA US man claims he rode a great white shark for several seconds after it knocked him off his longboard.

Doug Niblack had been surfing off the coast of Oregon when his surfboard hit something and he stepped off it.

Then he says he looked down and saw a dorsal fin in front of his feet... and realised he was standing on a 10ft long great white shark.

Doug claims he then surfed the shark for several seconds as its tail thrashed back and forth, before he fell off.

Obviously we'd be a lot happier with  this story had there been a video to accompany it, but we'll have to take his word for it.

275x250.jpg A would-be bank robber was forced to flee empty-handed when staff were unable to read his note demanding they hand over cash.

Thomas Love had apparently walked into a WSFS Bank in Delaware and handed over a poorly penned note, which the teller was unable to read.

When she told him that she couldn't make out what wanted -- like the scene in Woody Allen's Take the Money and Run -- 40-year-old Love stormed off.

After realising he'd been trying to rob the bank, staff contacted police and gave them his description. He was arrested shortly after.

275x250.jpgA heavily pregnant woman has completed the Chicago Marathon -- and then went into labour shortly after crossing the finish line.

Despite being nearly 39 weeks pregnant with her second chile Amber Miller didn't have a problem finishing the 26.2-mile race.

And the 27-year-old even beat her (considerably less pregnant) husband Joe, finishing 34,339th to his 34,997.

After crossing the finish line -- to cheers of "Go pregnant lady" -- Amber sat down to eat a sandwich, but started to feel contractions.

She was then taken to Central DuPage Hospital where she birth to daughter, June… who we think should also get a marathon finishers medal.

275x250.jpgCity bosses in Caracas, the Venezuelan capital, have come up with an odd way of dealing with road chaos -- they've employed 120 mimes to enforce traffic rules.

Officials in the municipality of Sucre say most drivers had little regard for the rules and something needed to be done about it.

As such the 120 mimes will now spend their days silently wagging their fingers and pulling faces at motorists who are breaking the rules.

It's hoped drivers will react better to mimes than they do to traditional traffic enforcement officers and as a result start driving better.

Mayor Carlos Ocariz says the scheme will stay in effect until the mimes have had the desired impact… hopefully irate drivers won't impact on the mimes.

275x250.jpgAn elderly motorist led police on a 27 mile low-speed chase when they tried to stop her for her unacceptable driving.

In fact Caroline Turner only came to a standstill when an officer ran alongside her car on a dual carriageway at 10mph... and tapped on the window.

Police in Essex say the 'chase' saw her veering onto the opposite side of the road before driving for eight miles on the dual carriageway and generally being rather dangerous.

When officers were finally able to get Turner to stop, she said she didn't know why she'd been stopped and added: "There is nothing to discuss, I'm going home."

Appearing at Colchester Magistrates' Court Turner admitted driving without due care and attention and failing to stop when asked by police.


Over her long life Clare Ormiston has probably received all the presents you could think off, which is why she wanted something special for her 100th birthday… a male stripper.

The cheeky centenarian told her family that not content with getting a card from the Queen on her big day, she also wanted to see a muscular man strip for her.

So not wanting to disappoint their mom, gran and great-grandmother they arranged for a buff stipper called Scorpion to attend her birthday bash at Glenfield Residential Home in Birmingham.

After watching Scorpion strip from his white uniform down to his underpants, 100-year-old Clare said: "I enjoyed that. It ­definitely put a smile on my face."

275x250.jpg A well-endowed squirrel has become a surprise internet hit after showing off what he's got on the BBC TV show 'The Great British Bake Off.'

Viewers who were watching Jo Wheatley being crowned winner of the show on BBC2 were shocked when the massive testicled squirrel suddenly appeared on screen.

In the brief clip -- which was played between baking footage -- the squirrel can be seen turning to camera and proudly displaying his huge nuts.

Minutes after the clip during the grand final, fans on Twitter were discussing squirrel anatomy rather than cakes and presenter Sue Perkins tweeted: "This week's GBBO features a shot of a squirrel with outsized nuts. Trust me, they are anatomically DAZZLING.



A lycra suit-wearing daredevil has shown off his extreme balancing skills by performing on Mountain Tai in China.

Eskil Ronningsbakken did his stuff on a 6ft platform located on a perilous-looking cliff without any safety harness or net.

Once in place the 31-year-old balanced on one arm before riding a bike and then doing a handstand on a pile of chairs.

He also swung on a trapeze as fans took photos and video… while secretly hoping he would fall so they could have a YouTube hit.

275x250.jpg A woman responsible for testing the comfort and quality of beds for a hotel chain is having her bottom insured for £4 million.

Natalie Thomas -- who can spent eight hours per day bouncing on beds -- says her rear is so sensitive it helps her detecting lumps and inconsistencies.

Charged with leading a team to ensure the quality of 46,000 Premier Inn bed, the 39-year-old from Bedfordshire (really) has been given the job title 'Director of Bed Bouncing.'

Natalie says she wears soft trousers so she can feel even the smallest lump or bump in a mattress and takes extra special care of her derriere, with regular moisturising sessions and being careful not to wear any hard wearing materials.

275x250.jpg Most couples only exchange their wedding vows once, but not Lauren and David Blair -- their just set the world record for doing it 100 times.

The loved-up couple from Tennessee are now featured in the Guinness World Records for 'Most Marriage Vow Renewals by the Same Couple'.

After meeting in 1982, the pair first married in 1982. Since then they've
renewed their vows a further  99 times, each ceremony taking place in a different location.

Asked why they continuously renew their vows, Lauren says: "I love to look into David’s eyes. I know that this man will love me until the day I die… of course, David will tell you that he does it for the honeymoons!"
