You want security? He’ll show you security!

lederhosen-dancer.jpg A 66-year-old German tourist, annoyed by stringent security at Manila’s airport, dropped his pants before walking through an X-ray machine, newspapers said Monday. Authorities were not amused.

Instead of boarding a flight to Frankfurt on Friday, Hans Jurgen Oskar von Naguschewski was detained after police filed a complaint of lasciviousness against him, the Philippine Daily Inquirer and the Philippine Star newspapers reported.

“He must have been annoyed that he was asked to walk through the X-ray twice, so he took off his pants,” airport security chief Angel Atutubo was quoted saying.

Oskar spent the weekend in police detention and was to face the prosecutor later Monday. If convicted, he could face six months to six years in jail.

A German hunter hit a washing machine, electric drier and the wall before finally killing a wild pig that was on the rampage in a house.

The pig had run into the communal wash room of a house in Ketzerbachtal in Saxony, and started shredding sheets and clothing.

A Serbian man wants to turn his home into a church because so many of his neighbours and friends are buried in his back garden

Dragan Djordjevic, 53, from the southern village of Grbavce, applied for permission to register his garden as a cemetery so his mother could be buried there when she died ten years ago. He said: “The nearest cemetery was too far away. I thought if I buried her in the back garden I could visit her grave more often, and save time. Then a neighbour asked if they could bury a relative there as I had permission, and now I have 70 neighbours and friends in my back garden.”

He said he has now applied for permission to turn the house into a church, daily newspaper Glas Javnosti reported.
