weird event: December 2010 Archives

275x250.jpg We like to think we know a thing or two about weird news, but we're not the only ones. Ripley's Believe It or Not! have revealed their top 10 strange stories of 2010.

The firm which publishes books on weirdness and runs odditoriums around the world say they've scoured headlines from 2010 to find the strangest.

And it looks like 2010 was a bumper year for oddness with stories including a bearded woman finding her son and our very own spray on clothes and the invention of deep fried beer.

Other odd tales making the list include a cat which can predict deaths and a woman bidding to become the world's fattest. We dread to think what 2011 hold for odd news.

Gongs were also awarded to police in Hampshire who released an e-fit which looked like a head of lettuce and makers of a bra which can be used to store a bottle of wine.

Celebrating the best weird news stories of 2010, the DAFTAS Awards (part of Newslite) had shortlisted bizarre stories in ten categories ranging from Crazy Crime and Weird Science to Odd Animal Tale.

A panel of judges then voted to pick the winners which were announced today on DAFTAS.com

Other winners included an artist who created a portrait using 9,852 slices of toast (Off-Beat Art) and a tattooist who was charged with assault after drawing a 40cm penis on the back of his friend (Crazy Crime).
