THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Arrested for quoting Winston Churchill: “A candidate in the European elections was arrested on suspicion of racial harrassment after quoting a passage about Islam, written by Winston Churchill, during a campaign speech. Paul Weston, chairman of the party Liberty GB, made the address on the steps of Winchester Guildhall, in Hampshire on Saturday. A member of the public took offence at the quote, taken from Churchill’s The River War and called police. The passage from the book, written by the wartime Prime Minister and first published in 1899, focuses on Churchill’s observations about Islam while serving during the Anglo-Egyptian reconquest of the Sudan. Mr Weston told his audience: ‘Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. Police officers arrested Mr Weston, mid-speech, for failing to comply with their request to move on under the powers of a dispersal order made against him. He was further arrested on suspicion of religious or racial harrassment.”

Priest clutching rosary beads walks down the MIDDLE of busy Swiss motorway for a mile after crashing his car… tells police he was just looking for a phone: “A Polish priest holding rosary beads did ‘not have a care in the world’ when he decided to set off on foot down a motorway after he crashed his car. Father Grzegorz Tomaszewski, 41, claimed he was looking for a petrol station where he could make a phone call to report the crash because he didn’t have a mobile phone. However, police caught him strolling down the middle of the busy A9 where cars had to swerve out of the way to avoid him. Another driver said when she called the police and told them a priest carrying a rosary was walking down the middle of the motorway, they did not believe her at first. Police confirmed the priest was involved in an incident on the A9 at Villeneuve and that his licence had been confiscated.”

Family bought Victor the ‘common’ tortoise 14 years ago only to discover he was rare giant breed who now weighs 126lb: “The creature was bought fourteen years ago by a couple from Liverpool, who were told that it was an ordinary tortoise. But the new owners were unaware that they had bought a special sulcata tortoise – which is the third largest species in the world – and has kept growing and growing. It became too large for the family home and they could no longer cope. The frantic couple were then forced to ring around zoos and rescue centres to try and find a suitable home for the giant reptile. Andy Browne, a farmer, offered to step in to rescue Victor and brought him home to his reserve in Highworth, Wiltshire. He collected the tortoise for free from the family in Liverpool and added it to his collection of unusual pets – which includes 400 other reptiles. ‘They were pretty distraught to give him away as Victor was a much-loved pet but they’ve been keeping in regular contact since I picked him up around two weeks ago.

Short Index Finger: “The old saying, “big hands, big dick,” might not actually have any weight to it, but it turns out that men whose index finger is shorter than his ring finger are more likely to have a big dick. A good conversation starter at the bar could be, “Hey can I see your index-to-ring finger ratio?” Of course, that doesn’t mean these well endowed, short-pointer-fingered men won’t be cheated on (see above). Apparently, finger length reveals a lot about someone’s sex life. Another study found that if men have “really masculine” index fingers that are significantly shorter than their ring fingers, they tended to be gay (and have a lot of older brothers). The study also found lesbians tended to have a greater difference in length between their index and ring fingers than straight girls.

Boneco the world’s first beekeeping donkey has his own suit to protect him from stings : “He is the most unlikely of beekeepers. But shielded from the stings in his custom-made protective suit, Boneco the donkey has proved to be a remarkable success. Manuel Juraci, 59, designed the head-to-toe beekeeping suit for his donkey to increase honey production in Itatira, Brazil. Of the 120 beekeepers in the rural town, Mr Juraci and his donkey Boneco harvest nine litres of honey each day – more than most farmers can manage alone. He turned to honey production 10 years ago when regular farming proved too difficult due to the region’s arid climate.”
