WEIRD NEWS STORIES OF THE WEEK

Baby
Found on Snowmobile Trail

A Swedish couple said they nearly ran over a 6-month-old
baby while
snowmobiling in the north of the country. [They] said they stopped the
snowmobile [to] investigate the object on the trail ahead. "At first we
didn't realize what it was lying there. We thought it was a doll. It
was sleeping and murmured a little when we picked it up, but then it
fell asleep again," Karlsson said.
 
The couple said they soon encounter [sic] two men on skis pulling sleds, one
containing two children and the other empty."We drove up to them and
asked if it was their child. One of the men confirmed that it was his
and then added: 'I thought it had gone a bit quiet back here,'"
Karlsson said.The pair said they were shocked by the man's response to
losing the baby on the trail.

Racist
Dog's Eye Slashed With 9-Inch Knife

A prejudiced pooch that reportedly disliked minorities was
slashed
Monday night by a Black man who had grown tired of the dog's incessant
barking at him, police said. The German Shepherd lost an eye, and the
alleged slasher - who worked for an oil delivery business where the dog
stood guard - was arrested on a felony aggravated cruelty charge.

"The dog reacts to Black people, Hispanics, anyone who is not White,"
owner Paul Tocco said. "She always barked at him. He (Owens) was well
aware the dog didn't like him, and he knew to stay away from her."

[The man] "egged on" the barking dog and charged at her, Detective Ken
Ross III said. He allegedly then pulled out a nine-inch folding knife.
"He taunted her with his arm, raised his arm with a knife and slashed
the dog across the face," he said. "He cut the dog over the right eye,
all the way down to the eye socket bone."

[The owner] placed [the dog] in a work van and drove her to a
Greenburgh, N.Y., animal hospital. "The dog is supposedly in good
spirits and is OK now," Ross said. "But it did lose the eye."

World's
Largest Rabbit Held By Young Girl For Manipulative Photo Op

Weird News - Giant RabbitDarius, a Continental Giant who is only 13 months old, was
held by a
small female child on Thursday in order that a reporter might take a
more manipulative photo of the reasonably interesting creature.
 
"I guess this would make a decent human interest story for the
Christian holiday of easter." Photographer Angie Sinesero was heard to
remark as she packed up her camera. "They'll probably be able to wring
at least a 2000 word feature out of it, if not more. Which is pretty
good for what is essentially a photo most people would take a few
moments to look at before smiling disinterestedly and carrying on with
their essentially joyless lives."
 
A spokesman from Guinness World Records said: "What the fuck do you
want from me? It's the biggest rabbit ever. Do you want me to make up a
story about it? Fine. Once there was a scientist and he fed a rabbit a
bunch of radioactive corned beef and it got so big that eventually it
broke down the walls of the science house and the cops tried shooting
it but the bullets had no effect the rabbit just laughed and one time
it jumped so high it flew into outer space." He then paused for a
moment, adding, "Satisfied?"

Dumbass
Town Falls for Alien Invasion April Fools Prank

A Jordanian newspaper's April Fool's Day report chronicling
a
late-night visit by 10-foot-tall aliens in flying saucers sparked
public panic and almost led to the town's emergency evacuation,
officials said Monday. The report said the UFOs lit up the whole town,
interrupted communications and sent fearful residents streaming into
the streets.

[The town's] mayor, Mohammed Mleihan, got caught up in the paper's
prank and said he sent security authorities in search of the aliens.
"Students didn't go to school, their parents were frightened and I
almost evacuated the town's 13,000 residents," Mleihan told The
Associated Press. "People were scared that aliens would attack them."

A Jordanian security official, speaking on condition of anonymity in
order to discuss security issues, said an emergency plan was almost
enacted in Jafr.

Women
Tried to Smuggle Corpse Onto Plane

Police have arrested two women at an British airport after
they
reportedly tried to smuggle a corpse onto a flight. Police [said] the
women were detained at Liverpool's John Lennon airport "on suspicion of
failing to give notification of death" of a 91-year-old man.

[The BBC] reported that the women placed the man, a relative of theirs,
into a wheelchair and covered his face with sunglasses in a bid to get
him aboard a flight to Berlin.

PRODUCT OF THE WEEK

Weird News - Savannah Cat
Enormous & Somewhat-Feral Savannah Cat
($1000-$20,000)

One problem I've always had with my cat is that she is extraordinarily
well-behaved, non-aggressive, and quiet. This has always bothered me,
as when seeking a household pet I often look for the animals which are
least suited to domestic life. That's why I was exited to learn about
Savannahs, a relatively new breed of cat which has only recently begun
to become popular with cat owners.
 
What are Savannahs? To put it simply: Savannahs are domestic cats bred
with african wild cats (Servals). Imagine a small cheetah living in
your home, and you will have a good idea of what makes the Savannah
such a wonderful, worry-free pet. Here are a few other things which can
potentially make ownership of this breed a treasure.
 

  • Weird News - Savannah Cat Giant KidThey can grow as large as a human toddler. These cats have
    been
    known to weigh as much as 20 pounds, and grow as tall as a foot and a
    half. Like most cats, they also have razor sharp claws and are easily
    startled. I see no problems here.

  • You can shower with them. Owners report that the cats do not fear
    water. As such, you can take a shower with your cat. Don't ask me.

  • They can jump 8 feet into the air. Having an enormous and nosy
    cat which could leap on top of anything (doors, refrigerators, ceiling
    fans, you, etc) would be a lot of fun to deal with!

  • They hiss like snakes. It has been said that the hiss of a
    Savannah is like the hiss of a very large snake, and can frighten those
    who are unprepared for it. It might be fun to test this out on small
    very children or elderly relatives with heart conditions.

 
 
So hey: if you've got a couple thousand to spare you might consider
investing in one of these cats.
