We have amusing video's, amusing pictures, now we have a thread for those amusing news stories

Porn broadcast stuns news viewers

Quote:
But staffers who earlier in the evening had watched a sports event on cable channel Canal Plus -- which often shows X-rated films after midnight -- had forgotten to switch it back, said news director Per Yng.

"This is highly embarrassing and unfortunate," Yng said. "It must not happen again."
It happened around midnight... in Sweden... suprisingly enough, no-one has complained

I wonder how many viewers they lost as people saw what was on the other channel though

Wife chopped off late hubby's willy

A German woman chopped off her dead husband's penis - to pickle it as a souvenir of their marriage.

Uta Schneider, 65, used a butcher's knife to hack off Heinrich's manhood in a Stuttgart hospital, reports The Sun.

She wrapped it in foil and put it in a lunchbox to take home but was spotted by a nurse and arrested.

Uta, who was wed to Heinrich, 68, for 35 years, is accused of mutilation.

She reportedly told police: "It was his best asset and gave me so much pleasure.

"I wanted to pickle it for eternity - he would have wanted it. We called it his joystick. I wanted it to remember him by."

Erm... I can't even begin to imagine the pain -

Marie Michel's fifth child was one for the record books. Michel gave birth to a 14-pound, 13-ounce boy Tuesday at William W. Backus Hospital.

Backus officials said the newborn Stephon Hendrix Louis-Jean broke the 18-year record for the biggest baby ever born at the hospital by 1 pound, 13 ounces. He was nearly 23 inches long.

"He's built like a linebacker," said Dr. David Kalla, who delivered the baby by Caesarean section.

Default Chimp buys drink

Quote:
A female chimpanzee surprised zookeepers by buying a drink from a vending machine.
Staff said the six-year-old, named Chiko, picked up a coin, inserted it into a slot and pressed a button. Despite her achievement, Chiko was unable to enjoy her drink at Tama Zoological Park in Tokyo because another chimp grabbed it from her.
Last year the zoo began experiments to see if chimps could learn from the behaviour of visitors. A small tray was fitted to the drinks machine to make it easier for chimps to insert coins, as their forefingers and thumbs are farther apart than those of humans.
The zoo's 17 chimps have also learned how to insert a branch into the holes of an artificial anthill to reach honey. A spokesman said: 'It is only a matter of time before the other chimpanzees start buying drinks from the vending machine.
