Odd news from around the world
Rude Peppa pig: “Like most little girls her age, Kiannah Cox loves everything to do with Peppa Pig. So her mother, Natalie, 30, thought there was no harm in indulging her daughter by letting her watch the cartoon each day. But when Kiannah, two, began regularly using the F-word she was horrified to learn the tot had picked it up from her favourite Peppa DVD. Miss Cox had bought her daughter the cartoon for Christmas, but it wasn’t until Kiannah’s older brother sat down to watch the DVD with her last month that she realised the youngster had copied the bad language from the television. In the episode, named End of Term Party, Grandpa Rabbit is telling Daddy Pig about Peppa’s school teacher Madame Gazelle, who used to play in a pop group. He says the name of the rock band, which is supposed to be the ‘Rocking Gazelles,’ but it clearly sounds like he is saying the ‘F-ing Gazelles.’ Last night Miss Cox demanded the DVD be pulled from sale until the mistake could be rectified.”
World’s oldest crown, more than 6,000 years old: “The world’s oldest crown believed to be more than 6000-years-old has gone on display for the first time in America. The ancient relic, which dates back to the Copper Age between 4000–3300 B.C., is shaped like a thick ring and features vultures and doors protruding from the top. It is believed the crown played a part in burial ceremonies for people of importance at the time. The crown was discovered in a remote cave in the Judaean Desert near the Dead Sea in 1961 among hundreds of other objects from the period. Known as the ‘Nahal Mishar Hoard’, more than 400 objects were discovered by Pessah Bar-Adon and his fellow Israeli archaeologists in the cave which became known as the ‘Cave of the Treasure’. The pieces included two clay statues of Gods – The Lady and Ram of Gilat – and a full array of Copper Age figurines made from copper, stone, elephant ivory and clay.”
Beautiful blonde goes for a fat man: “Sunrise host Samantha Armytage has spoken out about the long lunch she shared with Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet, amid rumours of a budding romance between the pair. On Monday morning’s show Sam’s co-hosts grilled her about the five-hour meal she enjoyed with Eric at Sydney’s Chiswick restaurant last month. ‘No I’m not going to tell you, it’s none of your business!’ Sam said. ‘It was lunch, it was fine, it was lovely.’ The 36-year-old’s co-hosts also said they couldn’t imagine Eric, 42, ‘not being gay in real life’, because he is so convincing in his role as Cameron Tucker on Modern Family. ‘He’s definitely not gay in real life,’ Sam said. ‘He’s a lovely man, very funny, very lovely, very different. ‘He’s a likeable bloke.’ Eric was in Australia with the Modern Family cast last month to film a special holiday episode of their hit Network Ten show.”
Falcons now helping with pigeon plague: “These spectacular photos show peregrine falcons hunting pigeons in the skies over British cities. The birds, some of the world’s fastest creatures, were captured snatching the vermin above Bristol and London. They can be seen soaring through the air with speeds of up to 240mph, before swiping the pigeons in their sharp talons. Peregrine falcons are the most widely distributed birds in the world – inhabiting all continents, except Antarctica. However, in Britain, they are usually spotted in the skies above mountain ranges, wild cliffs and other remote spaces. Photographer Sam Hobson, 34, said it was ‘amazing’ to capture the birds hunting above the bustling cities. ‘There is something amazing about seeing one of the world’s fastest animals perched on a building you see every day,’ he said. ‘There are plenty of tall buildings in cities for the birds to perch on.’
Hippos fight off crocodile attacking an antelope and escort the animal to safety: “After being bitten by a crocodile, the large antelope is seen being dragged slowly under the water. But just in time, a nearby hippo is seen making its way across the water to help the animal in its hour of need. After chasing the giant crocodile away, the unlikely hero is then seen guarding the creature and even nudges the gnu to the edge of the river in effort to move it out of harms way. Captured whilst on safari in Masai Mara game reserve in Kenya, the exhausted antelope later managed to escape to safety. Onishchenko said: ‘It was an incredible moment, the hippo actually tried to push it out of the water and then guarded the gnu to prevent the crocs getting close. ‘I have heard of cases where the animals instinct is to protect the other species, I think the hippos parental instincts took over. ‘The hippos are probably the only animal not afraid of the crocs and I would even say the hippo is the only animal the crocodiles are afraid of.”
