You Win Some, You Lose Some

How's this for a kick in the ass? A homeless woman goes dumpster-diving and finds 25,000 Pounds Sterling's worth of cash. Fearing it might be counterfeit, she brings it to the bank. And they confiscate it!

Fadila Cirhanovic, 52, from Zenica, Bosnia-Herzegovina, said she couldn't believe her luck when she found the cash.

But she feared it could be counterfeit and so took it to a bank to have the notes verified, reported daily Bljesak.

Managers at the branch confirmed the money was real, but confiscated it and passed it on to police after Cirhanovic admitted to finding it.

She said: "I'm hoping that my honesty will be rewarded in the end and I will get my fortune and be able to change my life."

Well, lady. You can wish in one hand and crap in the other and see which one gets filled first. She's not going to see a dime of that money. Looks like it's back to the dumpster for her.

Didn't the thought of presenting only ONE of the notes to the bank to check its authenticity enter her mind?

Shelob's New Lair

Now I usually have a pretty strong stomach for gross stories, but this one really creeps me out.

A woman in Sweden had a "thumbnail" sized spider living in her ear!

The woman concerned told Swedish tabloid Expressen that she began to experience "a slight loss of hearing" and assumed that she had a build-up of wax.

When she then heard "a scratching sound" in her ear she decided to buy a cleanser to wash out her ear cavity.

When she did so, the spider was flushed out alive and crawled away.

The woman remembered seeing a spider on her bed in November, 27 days earlier.

Umm. If I see a spider in my bed my first instinct is capture it in a cup, toss it in the toilet and flush. Maybe that makes me a "mean old meany" but here's a perfect example of what taking a sensitive approach towards uninvited arachnids can get you.

Oh, Lovely

It seems that according to the search engine Mamma.com, I'm number 17 on a search for "jamie bamber captain adama naked". I know a certain Georgia Girl I can thank for that one.

A Friday "WTF?" Two-fer

Heard of fingerpainting? How about boobypainting?

An Australian woman is selling pictures that she paints with her breasts at
£ 40 each.

The mother of two, from Tasmania, who is happy to describe herself as a big woman, works at the kitchen table rather than at an easel, reports the Mercury newspaper.

She said: "I either apply the paint to my breasts and lean on to the canvas or apply the paint to the canvas and then lean into it to spread the paint.

"I sign every picture with my nipple."

Now there's creativity for you. Sorry, no pictures available (of the paintings or the artist).

This other story gets honorable mention because I've posted a similar incident back in November. A Turkish shop assistant was found lying naked with a mannequin in a store window.

The 30-year-old man was discovered by colleagues opening up the department store in Antalya for the day.

They called police after noticing bite marks on the mannequin. Two other mannequins that showed signs of abuse were also taken in as evidence.

The shop assistant allegedly hid in the toilets while the store was being locked up for the night.

The man has been charged with damaging property.

Is this becoming a trend now? Is there a name for this sort of thing? I wonder what the other "signs of abuse" were. That's one sick puppy.
