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

News of the Weird!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 our podcasts.

Story #1

Now that’s a test drive!  Why rent a car when you can just take one on a 2000 mile test drive?  That’s the question an Australian man asked himself this week.  His answer, while making sense to him, didn’t go over too well with the car dealer, or the police.

Story #2

We’re all for living forever, but we’re just not sure a mayor can order you to do it.  A cemetery in southwest France is full, suppose that happens sometimes (people, after all, have been dying for years), but the mayor has issued the following order: “all persons not having a plot in the cemetery and wishing to be buried in Sarpourenx are forbidden from dying in the parish.”  Hmm, we’re thinking that collecting on the tickets issued for breaking that order will be tough to collect.

Story #3

The moral of our third story is this: If you’re going to rob the bank at which you work, make sure you’re either single or your spouse is very happy to be married to you.  You’d think the woman who stole $1.68 million from her work would at least have the sense to pay off her soon to be ex-husband to make him an accomplice.

Story #4

How do you get cuts in line for hell?  Accuse Moses of being high when he heard the voice of God and received the 10 Commandments.  While wandering the in desert would lead anyone to seek distraction, it doesn’t seem likely a bunch of junkies could stay together very long, let alone change the world.

Story #5

From “Save the Whales” to “Fillet the Whales”?  You know global warming has jumped the shark when people start using it as an excuse to justify anything.  Prime example: a Norwegian pro-whaling lobby (no, we didn’t make that up) claims harpooning Shamu is better for the planet than farming livestock.  We’ll stick with steak, thanks.
