Not what it seemed

An old man placed an order for one hamburger, French fries and a drink. He unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half, placing one half in front of his wife. He then carefully counted out the French fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.

He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a sip and then set the cup down between them. As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people around them were looking over and whispering.

Obviously they were thinking, ‘That poor old couple – all they can afford is one meal for the two of them.’

As the man began to eat his fries a young man came to the table and politely offered to buy another meal for the old couple. The old man said, they were just fine – they were used to sharing everything

People closer to the table noticed the little old lady hadn’t eaten a bite. She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink.

Again, the young man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal for them.

This time the old woman said ‘No, thank you, we are used to sharing everything.’

Finally, as the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the young man again came over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked ‘What is it you are waiting for?’

She answered —– ‘THE TEETH’

THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Surreal Indian animal marriage ceremony that cost… £180,000! : “Like any bride on the most important day of her life, no expense was spared on Poonam’s outfit. Her head was adorned in intricate gold jewellery, a bejewelled red sari draped over her back, even her hooves were decorated with floral bracelets. For the 300 guests who travelled to the Indian village of Bhavnagar, Gujarat state, the wedding between Poonam, a cow, and Arjun, a bull, is sure to be one of the strangest events they have witnessed. The event was organised by a charity in protest against the slaughter of cows in India, where the vast majority of people are Hindus, a religion in which they are considered sacred. Revered as a symbol of wealth cows are relied on for dairy products and for tilling the fields, and on cow dung as a source of fuel and fertilizer.” The owners held the lavish ceremony to show that the value of cows in Indian culture is ‘immeasurable’.

At Bates College, student mailboxes are shutting for good: “LEWISTON, Maine — It was as much a part of daily life at Bates College as eating lunch, a ritual as predictable as the trek to class — but more anticipated. On the way to the cafeteria and perhaps again on the way out, students descended on the campus post office, spun their mailbox dial left, right, left, and then right again, and peered to see if there was a letter, or better yet, a yellow package slip. In the decades before cellphones or even dormitory room land lines, letters linked students to the outside world, and the daily trip to the post office linked them to one another. Today, the mailboxes sit largely untouched, and the post office is little more than a hushed hallway. That is why at the end of the summer, the boxes will click shut for the last time, a sign of how the Internet is changing college campuses”

The bizarre bulbous ‘alien fish’ caught in Cabo: Experts reveal strange pink creature is actually a rare albino SHARK: “Earlier this week, a fisherman pulled something bizarre from the ocean just off of Cabo, Mexico. The photos reveal a pink and white creature with alien-like eyes and a massively distended belly, spurring speculation across the internet as to what it might be. The ‘alien fish’ was revealed on Tuesday by Pisces Sportfishing Fleet, who was told of the unusual catch by Jaime Rendon, Captain of Dr. Pescado. Though he initially thought it might be an alien, the creature ‘had raspy skin, three rows of tiny teeth and three gill slits on each side of the head,’ indicating that it was likely a shark. This is particularly unusual, as most sharks have 5-7 gills on each side, but the captain said the most striking feature was its oddly shaped, greenish eyes. ‘I was really surprised, but what caused most impact were the eyes, so strange’”

Quick-thinking children on an Easter egg hunt form a human arrow to POINT to where suspected robbers are hiding: “This is the extraordinary moment quick-thinking children on an Easter egg hunt thought of an ingenious way to alert a police helicopter to two fleeing suspected robbers. When the youngsters spot the National Police Air Service hot on the pursuit of potential criminals, the group of six to 12-year-olds lie down in the shape of an arrow as a handy guide to officers. The helicopter cameraman locates two men running in opposite directions through the field. Presumably he loses sight of one of them, but then he spots and pans to a group of children. They are on the floor of the field pointing in the direction of the lost man. Switching to thermal the camera swiftly finds the hidden suspect in the trees. The two men, aged 27 and 28, were then quickly arrested by officers on the ground on suspicion of burglary”

Woman complains after her DEAD CAT is mailed a voter registration flier: “A Florida election official is working to help confused voters after a woman complained that registration flier had been sent to her dead cat Gracey Duncan. Seminole County Supervisor of Elections Michael Ertel said on Thursday that he has set up a website to vet election mailings after the cat’s former owner Julie Duncan complained. He says he was motivated by the cat incident, in which Julie told him a Washington-based advocacy group had sent the bizarre mailing. Ertel says the website will educate voters about which fliers are legitimate and which aren’t. The elections supervisor says some of the out-of-state fliers from interest groups can confuse voters. Ertel told News 6 that he thinks whomever sent the registration flier is trying to ‘mislead’ voters.
