A tree frog has miraculously come back to life after being accidentally frozen solid in a freezer in Australia.Amazing.
The tiny frog was found covered in a layer of ice in a walk-in freezer - at -18C - at a Darwin cafeteria.
But - after defrosting - it fully recovered and started breathing again, reports the Australian Daily Telegraph.

This is from a Dutch carpenter whose work is on display in an art gallery in Germany.
Cabinet maker Mario Philippona designed a range of stylish wooden cupboards, wardrobes and tables using the female anatomy as his inspiration.I can hear dear old Uncle Gus as he passes the cranberry sauce, "Just look at them sweet potaters! Haw, Haw, Haw!"
His newest piece is a fruit bowl decorated with realistically shaped life-size wooden breasts called 'TittyFruity'.
Other pieces include a wine-glass cupboard in the shape of a pair of large breasts, a table supported by legs moulded from a female model and a bedside drawer which opens by pressing a button in the piece's 'vagina'.
Philippona said: "The shape of a woman, her organic architecture, combined with my passion for wood inspired me to sculpt these sexy designs."
At least it gives us guys a little reminder of what to be thankful for. :-)
OK, it's a slow news week...

Yeah, sometimes you're the cute little Cape Fur seal, sometimes you're the giant razor-toothed man-eating Great White shark.

OK, did I just write that? The fourth freaking largest religion in the United Kingdom!!!! Are you kidding me? No, I guess they're not.
We therefore are calling upon the United Nations Association to change November 16 to the UN Interstellar Day of Tolerance, to reflect the religious make-up of our twenty-first century civilisation.WTF? They want to insert the word "interstellar" into the already utopian designation of "UN Day of Tolerance". This is political correctness at its most outrageous.
Tolerance is about respecting difference where ever it lies, including other galaxies. Please don't exclude us from your important work. May the Force be with you.
In the 2001 UK Census 390,000 people listed their religion as Jedi Knight making it the fourth biggest belief in the country.
There are also an estimated 70,000 Jedi knights in Australia, 53,000 in New Zealand and 20,000 in Canada.
Look, I'll spot them the religion angle, but by what rationale do they come up with "interstellar". They're from THIS planet. Living in your parents' basement doesn't qualify as interstellar no matter how you have it decorated. The Star Wars Universe is not real. There are no Wookies, no Twi'leks, no Bothans, no Jawas...
Well, OK there are Jawas. Sorry 'bout that, Rusty.

An Indian grandmother has revealed she eats a kilo of sand a day to stay fit and healthy.Talk about your dietary fiber. I'd say this woman could probably pass just about anything through her system at this point.
Ram Rati, 80, considers sand an essential part of her daily diet and eats a kilo of it before breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea
Ram who lives in Chinhar in Lucknow told Asian News International: "When young, I tried it for fun once. Since then, I am used to it. My brothers and relatives pestered me to quit it but it was all in vain. I eat on an average around one or one-and-a-half kilos of sand per day."
Her granddaughter Shikha said: "The doctor said if she has no health problems, let her eat. We think it suits her health."

A Serbian man needed emergency surgery after he had sex with a hedgehog on a witchdoctor's advice.I'm not going to touch that one with a ten foot...er...pole.
Zoran Nikolovic, 35, from Belgrade, says the witchdoctor told him it would cure his premature ejaculation.
But he ended up in an operating theatre after the hedgehog's needles left his penis severely lacerated.
A hospital spokesman said: "The animal was apparently unhurt and the patient came off much worse from the encounter. We have managed to repair the damage to his penis."

Yes, it's a sculpture of the first turd squeezed out by the spawn of TomKat!
Here's the caption to this A/P gem:
This photo released by the Capla Kesting Gallery in August 2006 shows a sculpture purportedly cast from 19-week old Suri Cruise's first bowel movement. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes finally put Hollywood at ease by publishing the first photo of their daughter Suri, four months after her birth, in Vanity Fair magazine's October issue.I don't know about you but this doesn't put me at ease. Not in the least! It freaking creeps me out!

;font-family:sans-serif;">Iraq Still Manages to Shock
Listen to this story... by John Hendren
Morning Edition, August 7, 2006 Â· Sectarian strife continues to worsenin the Iraqi capital of Baghdad.
...the killing in Iraq is getting: shepherds in the rural western Baghdad neighborhood of Gazalea have recently been murdered, according to locals, for failing todiaper their goats....
Yes, you read that right. According to the audio:
The sexual tension is apparently so high in regions where sheiks take a draconian view of Sharia Law, that they feel the sight of naked goats poses an unacceptable temptation. They blame the goats.Not only that, but at a grocery store in east Baghdad, the grocer and 3 others were shot to death and the grocery store firebombed because the grocer had "suggestively arranged his vegetables".
Have I mentioned how much I love my country, lately? Not that we don't get our own "news of the weird" over here...but, God bless America and our *ahem* liberal attitudes and acceptance of naked goats and erotic vegetables!
