THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Islamic ‘leaning tower of PIZZA’ evokes mockery: “When hapless Islamic State militants vowed to take over Rome and ‘throw homosexuals off the leaning tower of pizza’, Italians responded with a flood of mocking responses. Now, Twitter users have jokingly suggested other culinary hotspots for militants to visit with the hashtag #jihadifoodtour. If they’re planning a visit to the UK, jihadi tourists can take in the ‘London Pie’, ‘Sconehenge’, ‘Big Ben and Jerrys’ and the ‘Angel Cake of the North’. Other must-visit foodie destinations suggested include the ‘Trifle Tower’, ‘The Great Wall of Quinoa’ and the ‘Sydney Okra House’. It was referring to a blunder made by an Islamic State supporter last week – who mistakenly confused the Leaning Tower of Pisa with the dish Italians are famous for. He had threatened to bring sharia law to the Italian capital in a message, posted on a Twitter account linked to the terror group.

Cunning British burglar snared by a single drop of blood: “Carl Chang was in the process of breaking into a home in Maidstone, Kent, on June 27 last year, when he got a tiny nick on his hand as he smashed a kitchen window to sneak in. The lone drop of blood was spotted by forensics officers, who were called to the scene within hours of the offence taking place, in which cash and jewellery were stolen. Despite Chang, 26, cleaning the window and various doors with cleaning fluid in a bid to get rid of his fingerprints and any traces he had been there, he didn’t notice to single drop of his blood on the kitchen doorstep by the smashed window. The serial crook, who had only recently been released from jail after serving time for another burglary, was arrested after cops traced his DNA to previous break-ins in the Kent area.”

Nutty British supermarket: “A 50-year-old shopper was asked for ID when he tried to buy a £2.60 bag of mixed nuts and a pair of bananas from Tesco. Tony Morris fancied a snack as he made his way home from dinner on Tuesday night, so popped into his local supermarket in Carlton Hill, Nottingham. But the peckish housing association manager was shocked and ’embarrassed’ when the self-service checkout warned the salted mixed nuts were an age-restricted product. A security guard and a Tesco worker approached Mr Morris after the ‘ID required’ message – usually reserved for alcohol, age-rated DVDs and painkillers – appeared on the screen. ‘They let me go but it was embarrassing as everyone was looking at me.’ The shopper, who paid £2.60 for the mixture of Brazil nuts, cashews, almonds, hazelnuts and pecans, as well as 29p for the pair of bananas, said he did not know if he would return to the store after the incident. A Tesco spokeswoman said: ‘We don’t age restrict the sale of nuts – our store team have rechecked all the nuts in the store to ensure this is the case.”

Toyboy becomes stuck inside his cheating lover: “Police had to be called in to restore order after a crowd gathered to see a cheating wife and her lover locked together during sex after the rumour spread that her husband had asked a witch doctor to put a curse on her private parts. And although medical experts say the embarrassing experience was more likely a case of ‘penis captivus’, in which the woman’s vagina had contracted too much and trapped the man’s penis, they were unable to stop the rumour and the mob had quickly assembled. Local media said that unfaithful Sasha Ngema, 34, had reportedly been romping with toyboy Sol Qoboza, 22, at a rented apartment in the city of Johannesburg in South Africa while her husband was away on business. The shocked couple began calling for help, which soon turned into screams as they became more desperate for him to withdraw, according to local media. Penis captivus is a rare occurrence in intercourse when the muscles in the vagina clamp down on the penis much more firmly than usual (a form of vaginismus), making it impossible for the penis to withdraw from the vagina.

Teenager given an non-urgent appointment at a British hospital – in 2099: “A teenager who tried to book a consultation at hospital was told to come back for an appointment in 84 years’ time. Yasmin Tisbury, 19, was referred for an ultrasound scan at Lister Hospital in Stevenage, Hertfordshire by her GP after complaining of stomach pains. But a month later, she received a letter telling her she had an appointment at 11am on Thursday January 1, 2099. The student will be 103 years old by the time she finally gets the scan – but as January 1 is a bank holiday, doctors may not even be working on that day. Miss Tisbury was put on hold for an hour before she was able to speak to the hospital to sort out the IT blunder. ‘It’s just a mix-up but I just wanted to get the date sorted. I have already had to wait a month to get the appointment and obviously I am worried about that. After tweeting about her bizarre experiences, Miss Tisbury was given a new appointment for next Tuesday.”
