WTF: 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.


Bizarre dash-cam footage shows the moment a 128mph police chase ended with a topless woman wearing a G-string surrendered to officers.

The 28-year-old from Ohio had only been stopped when cops used stingers along the route 422 to disable two of her tyres.

She then proceeded to emerge from the vehicle -- wearing just fishnet stockings, a g-string and high heels -- and stagger across the road before surrendering.

Unsurprisingly the woman has been charged with operating a vehicle impaired refusing a blood alcohol test, fleeing and eluding, criminal damage, driving under a suspended licence, speeding and reckless operation.

275x250.jpg If they were granted one wish, more people would ask for an iPad 2 than world peace… a rather depressing study has found.

A poll of 1,200 Brits found that while the most popular wish would be for one million pounds, it was closely followed by an Apple iPad 2.

Wishes for world peace came in third, followed by being famous, cosmetic surgery and a new sports car.

Other popular wishes included, a mansion, meeting a celebrity and owning a designer wardrobe. Less popular ones were 'McDonalds in their kitchen' and an 'unlimited supply of new trainers'.


A video of an irate man chopping down a parking meter with a chainsaw has become an online hit with empathetic motorists.

Unfortunately the 30 second clip -- which shows a white van driver arguing with a traffic cop -- is a fake.

We'd hoped that the driver's mate really had flipped out, grabbed his chainsaw an felled the parking meter in an act of defiance for everyone who has ever had a parking fine.

However, a spokesperson for the NYPD has confirmed the video is a fake. Which is a shame.

275x250.jpg It may look like typical Full English breakfast, but this meal is actually an impressive sweet dessert made by a talented cook.

Vicky McDonald -- a food blogger at Stasty.com -- says she spent weeks perfecting the dish to make sure it looked just like the real thing but tasted wonderfully sweet.

As such the bacon is really coloured brandy snap biscuits, the egg is a dollop of panna cotta topped with lemon curd and the sausages are caramelised peanut butter sponge cakes.

The hash browns are brioche coated with panko breadcrumbs, the black pudding is chocolate biscuit cake and the beans are tiny biscuits coated in white chocolate and coated in a fruit coulis.

275x250.jpg A US couple have been accused of beating their 16-year-old daughter and forcing her to take part in a medieval-style duel.

It's been reported that the duo even made the girl dress in armour for the battle with her stepfather.

The pair are said to have fought for two hours with wooden swords and police say the stepfather beat the girl with a tree branch prior to the duel.

Reports also claim the girl was being punished for going to a party without the parents permission and that the couple are Renaissance enthusiasts.

They apparently enjoy recreating fights from the medieval era‚ and due to appear in court they could well be heading to the stocks themselves.

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.



275x250.jpg There were calls for a contestant at the World Scrabble Championship in Warsaw to be strip-searched -- after one of the tiles went missing.

British letters man Ed Martin had been accused of hiding an all important letter 'G' during a match with a Thai player.

This is said to haveprompted his opponent to call for Martin to be taken toilet so he could be search.

However, authorities refused and as no evidence was presented to support the Thai player's allegation, Martin was declared the winner.

New Zealander Nigel Richards took the overall title after scoring 95 points with the word 'omnified', scooping a £12,700 prize.


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.


Mountain biking can be dangerous with all that hurtling around on rough terrain at high speeds… especially when charging antelope are added into the mix.


Just ask 17-year-old mountain bike racer Evan van der Spuy who was recently competing in a event in South Africa when a 30mph Red Hartebeest wiped him out.

In this video -- which was shot on a camera mounted to fellow rider Travis Walker -- Evan can be heard shouting "Watch the buck!"

A split-second later the 150kg Red Hartebeest can be seen charging across the plain and straight into the rider who is unsurprisingly knocked from his bike.

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.jpgA Welsh gardener has found himself unexpectedly invited backstage at a Snoop Dogg concert -- after the rapper was impressed by the size of his swedes.

In fact, Snoop was so impressed with Ian Neale's 85lb swede -- which could gain a place in the Guinness World Records -- he took to YouTube to congratulate him.

Speaking in front of a cannabis leaf-covered background he said: "I do vegetation myself and I want to know your secret so I can show you my vegetables and see if you can grow that into a real big vegetable."

He then told the 68-year-old he had two free tickets to his upcoming concert in Cardiff and that he was invited backstage.

Unfortunately it looks like Snoop will have to find another way to entertain himself after the gig. Neale says he won't be going and is more of a country and western man.

275x250.jpg What do you do if a friend or loved-one loses their job? Well card maker Hallmark hope you'll reach for one of their "unemployment cards".

That's right they now offer a range of six sympathy cards which they say are "appropriate to send to someone who has lost their job."

One card, which feature a photo of a cat on the front, reads: "Is there anywhere I could hack up a hairball, like, say, on a former employer's head?  Just wonderin' …" on the inside.

Another says: "Don't think of it as losing your job, think of it as time between stupid bosses."
