Odd news from around the world
Welsh Keystone Kops appear unaware that Jones is the most common surname in Wales (and in lots of other places): “Looking forward to a big night out, Richard Jones decided to scrub up with a leisurely shower in his luxury hotel suite. But his peace – and privacy – were shattered when two police officers suddenly burst in armed with Tasers. Pointing a stun gun at the naked businessman, they demanded: Are you Richard Jones? The only problem was they’d got the right name… but the wrong man. In a case of mistaken identity, the blundering cops had got him confused with a wanted criminal with the same name. The mistake only came to light when police studied the photo on the 53-year-old’s driving licence and realised they had got the wrong man. He shares his name with Richard Jones, 46, of Newport, Gwent, who is wanted by police following a breach of his restraining order on August 25. He said: ‘I asked the officers who they were looking for and they said Richard Leonard Jones. I told them my name was Richard Webb Jones. If I didn’t have a middle name, I’d have been put to the floor and arrested.'”
A bride-to-be filmed passionately kissing a man she had ‘just met’ during her hen do had to cancel the wedding after the clip went viral: “Emma Alicia Paz Ayala from the north-western Mexican city of Hermosillo went out for her party with female friends to celebrate her last night of ‘freedom’ as a single lady. The do took place at the Playa del Carmen resort on the other side of the country and while drinking heavily at a pool bar, Emma was filmed locking lips with the apparent stranger. The footage shows her new partner grabbing her by the waist and making her bend backwards as Emma can be seen smiling and kissing him while others cheer. The clip however was shared on social media and soon spread. The video eventually made its way to Pablo Torres Gandara, the husband-to-be, and his family – and the wedding was cancelled soon after that”
Women strip off outside Argentina’s house of congress to protest against the objectification of women (and ensure the most awkward moment of one man’s life): “A group of women sparked surprise outside Argentina’s national congress when they shed their clothes and strolled around completely naked in a protest about objectifying women. The members of the Urbanudismo campaign are calling for the acceptance of the naked female form, saying their actions are neither sexual or provocative. The protest lasted several minutes until police were called because it was making passers-by ‘uncomfortable’ – including one man who looked especially awkward when approached by a naked woman. He got up and walked off when she sat next to him.”
‘France is populated by imbeciles making wine and stinky cheese for tourists’ says Gerard Depardieu: “Larger-than-life actor Gerard Depardieu said his homeland France is becoming a playground for foreigners ‘populated by imbeciles making wine and stinky cheese’. It’s not the first time the maverick performer, 67, has taken aim at France, saying it will become a ‘Disneyland for foreigners’. He was granted Russian citizenship in 2013 after befriending strongman President Vladimir Putin and lambasting tax rates on top earners in his native land. When asked during the interview if he considers himself French, Depardieu told Corriere della Sera today: ‘No, I’m a citizen of the world. But in Depardieu’s eyes, Italy deserves some praise. ‘In Italy, happily, you have not lost your culture and your identity. ‘Because you are a young country. ‘Unlike half of Europe – with its fear of migrants – that has become a bit fascist.'”
Revealed: How Britain’s angling community is at war as dad receives DEATH THREATS over ‘biggest ever carp catch’: “An angler who caught a 70lb 4oz carp which set a new British record has received death threats to him and his family. Tom Doherty, 33, landed the whopper known as ‘Big Rig’ at RH Fisheries in Shifnal near Telford, Shropshire, on Monday. But his catch sparked a fierce debate in the angling community, with some saying it is not deserving of the record. The row centres on claims the fish was “farmed” overseas until it reached its enormous size before being dropped in the British lake. Traditionalists say the record should be held by a “wild” carp which has spent years growing to its full weight. Rob Hales, who runs the fishing lake, has denied claims the carp was brought over from France saying: “It’s a bona fide British record.” Boss Paul Meehan confirmed: ‘There have been death threats and threats to Tom’s girlfriend and child. It is unreal.”
