A look at the lighter side of life, the “proper” news is too depressing!


Police say a Japanese pop star dressed up as a pineapple has been robbed while shooting a music video in southern Sweden.

Police spokesman Bo Paulsson says three young men beat up 41-year-old Hideki Kaji and robbed him of camera equipment worth around 20,000 kronor (£1,700) late Saturday.

Paulsson says the pineapple-clad artist had been left alone with the equipment while the camera crew went for a break. He was left with a cut lip and lost a dental implant.

Remember, five a day!

Neighbour stink bombs cars in parking row Metro.co.uk

A hotel neighbour has ruined seven cars with stink bombs after getting annoyed with guests who parked in front of his drive.

Siegfried Bloch, 67, is being questioned by police after he was caught on CCTV pouring a liquid into car air vents in Breitenfurt, Austria.

Insurers wrote off the cars rather than foot a £60,000 cleaning bill.

Would you buy a used car………

Metro.co.uk A referee ordered a penalty to be retaken in a Sunday league football game after an opposition player 'broke wind' as the ball was kicked.

He also gave the player a yellow card for the 'ungentlemanly conduct'.

Chorlton Villa, who conceded a goal on the second take, won 6-4 away against International Manchester FC in Stretford.

Well it was a “passing” move.

Man coughs up mystery nail he doesn't remember swallowing Metro.co.uk

A man who coughed up an inch-long nail during a medical procedure is unsure how it got into his body, as he doesn't recall any serious hammer-and-nail mishaps in his past.

Doctors administering an MRI on 72-year-old Colorado resident Prax Sanchez last month abruptly stopped the exam to tell him there seemed to be something metallic in his face.

Right after the MRI, Sanchez coughed up the nail.

I bet that must have been a good night out.

And a few odd pictures to finish off.
