Irish wisdom

On a bitterly cold winter morning a husband and wife in Dublin were listening to the radio during breakfast. They heard the announcer say, “We are going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, so the snow plows can get through. “So the good wife went out and moved her car.

A week later while they are eating breakfast again, the radio announcer said, “We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd-numbered side of the street, so the snow plows can get through. “The good wife went out and moved her car again.

The next week they are again having breakfast, when the radio announcer says, “We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. You must park….” Then the electric power went out. The good wife was very upset, and with a worried look on her face she said, “I don’t know what to do. Which side of the street do I need to park on so the snow plows can get through?”

Then with the love and understanding in his voice that all men who are married to blondes exhibit, the husband replied,

“Why don’t you just leave the car in the garage this time.”

THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Woman slices off her brother-in-law’s genitals ‘as he raped her’: “A mother-of-three chopped off her brother-in-law’s genitals before handing them in as evidence at a police station in India. The 32-year-old woman stunned officers when she entered the station in the Sidhi district of Madhya Pradesh, clutching the severed organ. The woman, who was accompanied by her three children, told officers that it was the only way to stop her brother-in-law attacking her. The woman was staying with her brother-in-law as her husband worked more than 700 miles away, in Nashik, Maharashtra. But he had allegedly assaulted her many times while she stayed in his house. She told police that she faked consent when her brother-in-law attacked her, before hacking off his privates with a sickle. Before the police were able to get medical support to the injured man, he had already committed suicide”

Warning over iron tablets as study reveals they may damage the body in just 10 MINUTES: “Iron tablets taken by millions of people could damage the body within just 10 minutes, a study has warned. Tests showed the mineral rapidly causes DNA damage in blood vessels. While they were carried out in a lab setting, rather than living people, researchers found the levels of iron given in supplements may be too high and harmful. Iron supplements may contain 10 times more than is necessary for health, the researchers said. In future, doctors may want to think carefully about prescribing the minimum dose of iron necessary to patients who need it, researchers said. Iron is an essential element for life. Many women take the supplement after pregnancy and it is used as a treatment for anaemia, a condition caused by low levels of the mineral. Good sources of iron include dark leafy vegetables, brown rice, meat and fish, nuts and seeds eggs and dried fruit.”

Village of the dammed: Entire Welsh village to be ‘decommissioned’ and moved after government warns it will be lost to the sea: “Residents of a Welsh coastal resort have been left trapped in their homes by council plans to abandon sea defences and allow their village to be swallowed up by the sea. People living in picturesque Fairbourne in Cardigan Bay are digging in for a bitter legal battle against plans to ‘decommission’ their village and flood their streets with sea water. They are fighting the plans they say are based ‘nonsensical’ predictions and demanding compensation over moves to move them. Council plans propose the 500-home village undergo ‘managed realignment’ and eventually be ‘decommissioned’ after the sea defences are abandoned in 40 years. Locals are angry that the plans seem to be based on an assumption that sea levels will rise by a whole metre in the next century, something they dispute.”

Twelve children are killed in wave of attacks by rabid VAMPIRE BATS in Peru as locals blame witchcraft: “At least twelve children have died from rabies after being attacked by blood-sucking bats in the Peruvian jungle – but locals first blamed it on witchcraft. The outbreak of rabies killed the indigenous children after they were bitten by the vampire bats in the Amazon region of Loreto. The children were from the Achuar community, who live in the Amazon area of Peru on the border with Ecuador. ‘From the symptoms and medical reports it was determined that the 12 children from the Achuar ethnic group died from an outbreak of wild rabies,’ she said. ‘The victims were bitten by blood-sucking bats, animals that drink blood, in the Yankuntich and Uncun communities in the jungle’ 1,100 kilometers (684 miles) north of the capital Lima.”

Naked drunk man who was caught on CCTV trying to fight oncoming traffic is ordered to stay in at night: “A drunk man who finished up his evening out by stripping naked and ‘fighting’ oncoming traffic has been ordered to stay in at night. Tom O’Neill, 32, was charged after a number of videos surfaced on social media showing the bizarre incident, which saw him surrounded by his discarded clothes and goading drivers for a fight in Southend, Essex. One of the videos, posted with the caption: ‘So this happened down Southend seafront tonight… An extremely drunk Irish fella stark, butt naked trying to fight oncoming cars!’, shows him running towards cars in the middle of the road, surrounded by discarded clothes. Two cars manage to creep by using a shared space area for pedestrians, before he takes a swing at one of them in Southend, Essex. PC Mick Finch, and police dog Cody, were called to Marine Parade to deal with him and make an arrest. O’Neill, from the Essex town, was charged with criminal damage to a vehicle, being drunk and disorderly as well as assaulting a police officer”
