We interupt the news with some tales of whim and whimsy from around the world.
Why the heck would you bring your dog to a break in?
L I N K “When they arrived, the thief had already fled empty-handed, possibly alerted by a burglar alarm going off, but the Jack Russell was still on the premises.”
And for you Leafs fans L I N K World’s worst ever soccer team celebrates their first win!
“A football team dubbed Britain’s worst have won their first ever game – after a losing streak of 90 matches.
Harraby Athletic have been trounced week-in week-out for three years beginning their stretch of defeats with a 19-0 hammering in 2006.”
L I N K Record Breaking Fat Cat!
“Xu Jirong, of Qingdao, in northern China’s Shandong province, says the cat, appropriately named Chubby, has a 27ins waist – bigger than a human girl’s.
“She puts on more than two pounds every year – I suspect the problem is that she much prefers pork to fish,” he told Wuzhou Daily.
“She can swallow down four or five pieces of raw pork within minutes.” Geez that’s just wrong. Don’t y’all go around feeding kitty raw pork! Now that’s a nice segue to our next story about the World’s Biggest Burger!
“Restaurant owner Steve Mallie said it took eight hours to bake the bun big enough to hold the 185lb burger. The burger is baked for 15 hours before it is topped with cheese, lettuce and tomato and wheeled out into the restaurant on a trolley.” Yeah, I’d like one of those 185 pound burgers, and um, a small diet pepsi….
Hope the silly news brightened your morning as much as it did ours.
