THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Scottish girls are bustiest in UK – with 34DD breasts: “Scottish girls are on average a 34DD – that’s two cup sizes bigger than their 34C English neighbours. Inverness came out on top, with the average bra size coming in at a 36F. The research reveals that Northern English women are more likely to have bigger boobs – with the average Northern lady wearing a D cup. Northern towns to top the biggest breast poll are Liverpool, Leeds, Aberdeen and Glasgow, while southern towns are at the lower end of the spectrum. A spokesperson for Debenhams Lingerie, who commissioned the research, said: ‘We have seen a dramatic difference in Scottish bust sizes vs. the rest of the UK, our fuller bust ranges have been particularly popular with Scots.’ [I think Canadian ladies are bigger than US ones too]

Parrot defends owner from attacker: “A crime-fighting parrot has saved his owner after she was pushed to the ground in a park. The female victim had been taking Wunsy the African grey for a walk and fly in Sunny Hill Park, north London, on Friday when she was grabbed by the shoulders and shoved. The parrot, who is taken to the park daily in a harness and lead, flapped his wings and squawked, causing the attacker to flee. The attacker is a white man aged 25 to 35 with short blond hair. He was wearing beige trousers and had a dark black rucksack.”

World’s oldest barmaid is celebrating her 100th birthday but has no plans to retire: “A great-grandmother who has been named the oldest bar maid in the world is celebrating her 100th birthday, but despite having pulled pints since 1940 she has no plans to retire. Dolly Saville still works three days a week at The Red Lion Hotel in Wendover, Buckinghamshire, and has been working for 74 years. She started pulling pints when she was 26, just before World War II, and she estimates that she has poured around two million pints since she began. Over the last seven decades she has served many famous faces, including James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan, former Prime Minister Ted Heath, footballer Stanley Matthews, singer Vera Lynn, ballet dancer Margot Fonteyn and actress Elizabeth Taylor. Until six years ago when she was 94 she was still working at least six hours a day, six days a week and has only ever had two weeks sick leave her entire life. Now she has had to reduce her shifts to three hours a week, but still spends the time working on her feet clearing tables, serving customers and polishing glasses.

Chubby locals complain after Chinese council builds public toilet with 20-inch wide doors that only thin people can get through: “The local council has been flooded with complaints from larger locals who say they are unable to get through the 20-inch doors to access the facility. There is only enough space in the corridor for a single person to go in and out of the toilet at any one time, while queues can form during winter as people try to force themselves in while wearing thick jumpers and woolly coats. Local council official Guang Yao, whose department operates the toilet, said they had decided to put the toilet there two decades ago because there was an urgent need for more public facilities but there was very little space. He said: ‘It was less of a problem then because people were not so overweight as they are now, and there was not so many people using it so they had time to come in and go out.”

Butcher invents Scotch Creme Eggs: “A creative butcher has cooked up a unusual take on an Easter favourite – Scotch Creme Eggs. Graham Eyes created the seasonal snacks in a bid to entice more customers through the doors of his shop in Southport, Merseyside. The 53-year-old is renowned locally for his unusual concoctions and, after the success of last year’s Cadbury’s Mini Egg sausages, he was looking for another way to brighten up Easter. His latest offering is a Cadbury’s Creme Egg, wrapped in sausage meat, and flavoured with a variety of seasonings. ‘Personally I think they are really tasty, I really like them. They’ve got a really interesting taste. ‘You’ve got the sweetness from the chocolate, contrasting with the chilli and lime that we use in the coating – but the flavours go really well together.’
