News of the Weird, News of the World, News of…Whatever!

In our never ending attempt to bring you the news from around the world that you may have missed, here is another bit of the written version of the famed last segment of they type of stories we discuss in the last segment of our podcasts.

News of the Weird!Story #1

You think your job is killing you?  This guy in  Japan had a court rule that his job killed him!  Apparently 105 hours of overtime in a month is the number to stop on and no more.

Story #2

For those times when you just can’t wait, London has introduced a new text service that will send you the location of the nearest toilet for 50 cents.  Or you could simply look around and ask for one, your call.

Story #3

Looking for a fast way to upgrade to first class on the express train to hell?  Do what these Germans did.

Story #4

Sometimes a headline is simply weird enough that all we have to do is copy/paste it and let you write your own jokes in your head.  With that in mind, we give you “Cock crows too early for town.”  Have at it.

Story #5

We always try to end these with a bang, but this story takes that to a new level.  A prostitute has auctioned off 27 hours of sex for charity.  Once the winner paid, Pfizer, the maker of Viagra, saw their stock nearly double.
