 Watch Out for the Phantom Butt Sniffer

In England, a man has been caught on closed circuit TV sniffing people’s butts. Yes, that’s right, butt sniffing. Police are searching for a man who crept up 20 times on an unsuspecting supermarket worker while he was stocking shelves and knelt behind him to smell his bottom. That is so creepy. The footage shows the sniffer pretending to chose items from shelves before crouching down behind the employee and smelling his buttocks.The employee became suspicious and informed his manager who checked the video before Devon police were called. The victim said, “I had no idea what was going on. I thought it was all a bit strange.” Strange is not the word for it. I’m thinking “disgusting.” To see the CC video of this, go here: http://www.aftonbladet.se/webbtv/nyheter/utrikes/article6333349.ab

Hewlett Packard’s Weird Video Tracking.

This is turning out to be a day for videos, but here we go. Evidently Hewlett Packard computers are racist, if you follow the rationale of this video. It shows how HP’s webcam software which is supposed to track the movements of a person’s face, doesn’t work too well if you’re African American. Desi (African-American) and Wanda (Caucasian), our two stars of the video, appear to be workers in some sort of consumer electronics store. It’s pretty clear that the software seems to think Desi is invisible. At least Desi and Wanda seem to have a good sense of humor about the issue. Granted, it’s just a bug, but a hilarious one. HP believes its software is having “difficulty ‘seeing’ contrast in conditions where there is insufficient foreground lighting. It appears to me that HP doesn’t hire any Africa Americans in their product testing Department. At any rate, watch the video It’s pretty funny:

 Joseph and Mary Christmas Billboard In New Zealand

OK. am I twisted? Because I find this really funny. A billboard sponsored by a local Anglican church that shows Joseph and Mary in bed has set tongues wagging in New Zealand, with the Catholic Church condemning it as others found it funny. The controversial billboard, erected by St Matthew-in-the-City Church in Auckland, shows a dejected-looking Joseph under bedcovers beside a sad Mary. Underneath the image, a caption reads: “Poor Joseph. God is a hard act to follow.” The dude just can’ quite match up to the big guy. Church archdeacon Glynn Cardy said the billboard was intended to lampoon the literal interpretation of the Christmas conception story and highlight the real significance of the festival. “What we’re trying to do is to get people to think more about what Christmas is all about,” Cardy told local media. “Is it about a spiritual male God sending down sperm so a child would be born, or is it about the power of love in our midst as seen in Jesus?” The billboard has so far drawn the ire of the Catholic Church in New Zealand, which called it “inappropriate” and “disrespectful.” It was also condemned as offensive by family values group Family First. You knew they were going to have something to say, didn’t you? “The church can have its debate on the Virgin birth and its spiritual significance inside the church building, but to confront children and fhttp://www.stmatthews.org.nz/nav.php?sid=498&id=999amilies with the concept as a street billboard is completely irresponsible and unnecessary,” Family First director Bob McCoskrie told news website stuff.co.nz. Lighten up. I’d drive by it just for chuckle on my way…well, anywhere. Unfortunately the sign was defaced and covered with brown paint several hours after going up by an offended Kiwi.

Discount for Your Grilled Cheese Tattoo

Got a tattoo of a grilled cheese sandwich? If so this is your lucky day. An Ohio restaurant is offering lifetime discounts to people willing to make an indelible display of their love for grilled cheese sandwiches. Melt Bar & Grilled in the Cleveland suburb of Lakewood specializes in spins on the grilled cheese and says anyone with a tattoo of the classic sandwich will get 25 percent off.  I wonder if it comes with a pickle? The restaurant has hooked up for the promotion with a tattoo shop, which is offering its own discount on grilled cheese designs. See, even if you don’t have one, it’s still your lucky day.  John Forgus of Voodoo Monkey Tattoo says he’s been getting creative, giving one person a tattoo of Popeye holding a grilled cheese sandwich instead of a spinach can. OK, this is officially the strangest business promotion idea I’ve seen. Can I get some cheese and ink please?

Woman Flashing Boobs Struck by Distracted Driver

There’s a certain irony in this story. There’s also bare boobs, drunkeness and mayhem, all the ingredients of the perfect story. Cherelle May Dudfield was struck by a vehicle after she ran out into the road following a dare by friends.  Always a smart move. The 18-year-old had been drinking with her mates when the incident happened, and had to be treated in hospital for cuts she suffered. I told, you alcohol. The teenager was also landed with a $240 fine for disorderly behaviour. “I stood on the centre line, flashed a couple of cars with my boobs, got back in and they [her friends] told me to do it again, so I did,” said Dudfield. “And then I saw a car coming towards me, on the middle of the centre lane driving up towards me, so I decided to run. And then I got hit.” See, boobs and mayhem. To demonstrate exactly how silly she had been, she later re-enacted her stunt for a TV station – but this time she was fully sober, and no one crashed. Yea, let’s recreate this, only on video, to see if we can cause another accident.  And Dudfield also gave a repeat performance to cows on her farm. Cows on her farm? Why is she flashing cows? Has she been running in the wrong social circles? Was one of her friends that dared her named Elsie? or Bossie?  However, police officers did not see the funny side of her exposure, which happened in the small New Zealand town of Invercargill. “This was obviously an alcohol- involved offense,” said Olaf Jensen, of Invercargill Police. “This girl put herself at risk with the actions she undertook, not only herself, but the motorists on the road.” Leave it to these investigative geniuses to get right to the heart of the matter.  Hey Olaf, quick thinking there.

Building a Life-size Stagecoach From Toothpicks

When I first saw this, I thought, OK, tiny model made out of toothpicks, let’s check it out.  I never dreamed it would be full size. Terry Woodling spent 15 years creating the Wells Fargo replica using wooden sticks and glue. Known as Mr Toothpick, he made models for years but this was his most ambitious project.It cost him more than $1400 but the model was bought for $160,000 by Ripley’s Believe It or Not! “I never kept track of the hours I spent working on it, only the years,” said the 72-year-old from Warsaw, Indiana. Amazing.

Exploding Chewing Gum, Kills One

OK, this has to be one of the weirdest things I’ve ever come across, death by chewing gum explosion. You just can’t make stuff like this up. 25-year-old chemistry student Vladimir Likhonos, from the city of Konotop in northern Ukraine, died at his parent’s house  after relatives heard what was described as ‘a loud pop’, and rushed into his room. There they discovered that the lower half of his face had been severely disfigured by the chewing gum blast, with his jaw entirely blown off. I’m guessing that wasn’t the original plan. Medical workers who arrived on the scene attempted to treat his injuries but were unable to save him.Forensic tests carried out on the chewing gum revealed an unidentified chemical substance on it. It is thought that the student, who has not been named, had a habit of dipping his chewing gum into powdered citric acid and investigators believe that he may have mistakenly dipped the gum into the wrong substance, as the two powders appeared very similar, leading to the deadly explosion. “Anybody could have mixed them up,” said police spokeswoman Elvira Biganova. My reply to that is – apprently not anybody, it’s not like this happens everyday. Authorities are waiting on the results of further tests by explosives experts to identify the mystery substance.

Saved By A Dumpster

Did you ever think that dumpster diving might save your life. Well, that was the conclusion some German hikers had. Police in Darmstadt, Germany, south of Frankfurt, say they received an emergency call at nearly 3 a.m. on Sunday from a man who said he and three companions had fled into the container after being surprised by a group of boars during a nighttime walk in the woods. Yes, I said boars, wild pigs. Their trip had become anything but boring. Yea I’m aware it’s a really bad joke. They didn’t dare to emerge. A police statement Monday says that a patrol found the four shivering in the metal container and escorted them from the scene. The boars already had disappeared, apparently bored of the entire situation.

Pushpin Art

Eric Daigh pin portrait

It seems that everything is a medium for art these days. This one is pushpins created by Michigan resident Eric Daigh. The artist creates incredibly life-like portraits using coloured pins from noticeboards, and has sold some for thousands of dollars. The 32-year-old uses only five colours in each picture and it can take him up to eight months to put one together. His biggest portraits are almost 2m high (6ft 6in) and use more than 20,000 pins. “Millions of people use them daily but nobody had stumbled upon this before me,” said Mr Daigh, who holds the Guinness World Record for the biggest push pin mosaic. “How I got as far as getting the first one done is some alchemy of divorce, boredom and idiocy. But after that it was easy.” Mr Daigh, from Michigan, US, buys the pins in batches of between 75,000 and 100,000. He said: “I worked as a video editor before doing this and it was addictive to have people look at my work and say, ‘That must have taken for ever,’rather than ‘That took all that time?’.”
