Odd news from around the world

Danish teacher forced seven-year-old boys to strip to their underwear while he brandished a pair of scissors and threatened to cut their penises off: “A teacher ordered two seven-year-old boys to strip to their underwear at a Danish school before threatening to cut off their penises with a pair of scissors. The pupils were made to take their clothes off after forgetting to bring Santa hats to a Christmas party at Strandmølle School in Assens, western Funen. It has been reported that the youngsters were also told to climb into bin bags in front of the whole school. The school admitted that the action was inappropriate adding that even though it had not been funny, it had only been meant as a joke. But the parents were not satisfied with the response and complained to a child protection group, which urged them to report it to the police. A local police spokesman said that they had received an official complaint and were investigating.

“She type” Jaguar coming: “It’s good news for dads who feared their days of roaring along in a sports car were behind them. Jaguar is building its first 4×4 – and there’s plenty of room for the kids. The British firm today announced 1,300 new jobs to help it create the five-door, five-seater sports utility vehicle, which will cost around £38,000. Firmly aimed at ‘Jag dads’ with children to ferry around, the all-wheel drive car will come with extra grip technology, meaning it’s safe and reliable in all weathers. More practical than the sleek saloons and super-charged sports cars the firm is known for, it is also designed to appeal to busy mums on the school run – for whom it has been dubbed the ‘She-Type’ Jaguar. It will officially be called the F-PACE when it goes on sale in 2016, as a British rival to Germany’s Porsche Macan and BMW X4 crossover. The F-PACE will be powered by a new generation of fuel-efficient two-litre petrol and diesel engines”

New ichthyosaur found: “This monster lived 170 million years ago, not in Loch Ness, but in a warm shallow sea around what is now the Isle of Skye and has been identified as a new species of ‘ichthyosaur,’ a large dolphin-like marine reptile that grew up to 14 feet long from snout to tail. A team of palaeontologists – led by the University of Edinburgh and including a consortium of Scottish institutions – studied fossil fragments of skulls, teeth, vertebrae and an upper arm bone discovered on Skye in the past 50 years. Several of the fossils came from ichthyosaurs, including one previously unknown species, named ‘Dearcmhara shawcrossi.’ Throughout the Jurassic Period, much of Skye was under water. At the time, it was joined to the rest of the UK and part of a large island positioned between landmasses that drifted apart to become Europe and North America. Lead researcher Dr Steve Brusatte, from the University of Edinburgh’s School of Geosciences, said: ‘During the time of dinosaurs, the waters of Scotland were prowled by big reptiles the size of motor boats.”

Laid-back Pope: “Pope Francis told new mothers they should feel to breastfeed during a ceremony to baptise 33 infants in the Sistine Chapel on Sunday. ‘You mothers give your children milk and even now, if they cry because they are hungry, breastfeed them, don’t worry,’ he said, departing from his prepared text. The written text of his homily had the phrase ‘give them milk,’ but he changed it to use the Italian term ‘allattateli’, which means ‘breastfeed them,’ and added that they should not hesitate.” Even before he read the homily, at least one mother was seen breastfeeding, perhaps recalling that the pope had used similar words to make mothers feel at ease before.” Baptism is the sacrament at which infants or converts are initiated into the Christian faith. Francis poured water on the foreheads of the infants as part of the ritual. Francis spoke each baby’s name and poured water from a golden shell-shaped cup into their foreheads, welcoming them into their religion – despite the apparent protestations of some.”

REALLY stupid fashion: “The hottest looks for autumn/winter 2015 menswear will be statement jumpers, sheer trousers… and plastic bag hats. At least that’s the message coming from the house of Christopher Shannon judging by his presentation at London Collections: Men this weekend. The young Liverpudlian designer sent many of his male models down the runway with their heads and faces covered in corner shop carrier bags. The unlikely accessory was also seen fashioned into pretty neck ties or jewellery by the show’s co-stylist Judy Blame. Many of the black, white and striped ‘masks’ had little holes cut in them so the models could see where they were going. The headpieces topped many of the outlandish outfits from his collection, which featured knitted statement jumpers – with sombre slogans such as ‘Broke’, ‘Broken’, ‘Save Me’, and ‘Thanks 4 Nothing’ – cinched with tutu belts, chunky work boots and slashed or sheer trousers.”
