Which came first, the duck or the egg?

A ten-year-old Devon girl has hatched two chicks – from eggs bought at her local supermarket. Jessica Sansom, 10, put two of the organic eggs in an incubator the family had used to hatch geese and hens on their farm.

A month later she watched the yellow chicks – which she named Splish and Splosh – appear, reports the Sun. Jessica, of Ilfracombe, said: “I wanted to see what would happen and mum said it might work – and it did. They are the cutest ducks ever.”

Mum Elizabeth, 53, who paid £1.95 for the half-dozen eggs at Waitrose, said: “We ate four but Jessica wanted to save the last two to see what would happen. To everyone’s amazement it worked.”

My dog ate my homework dentures

A Jack Russell terrier was rushed into surgery – after eating his owner’s false teeth. One-year-old Desmond gobbled down Marjorie Johnson’s dentures when she was in the loo, reports the Mirror. The teeth showed up on X-rays and vets had to open up his stomach in a £1,200 three-hour op.

Gran Marjorie, 62, of South Shields, South Tyneside, said: “He’s eaten them for the fun of it. He’s very mischievous. “When I got back he was looking all sheepish.”

The terrier had previously chewed slippers, shoes and TV wires

15 years?? Well, everyone needs a hobby.

Li Jianping, 43, of Shishi City, Fujian province, says the nails on his left hand are one metre long in total. He told the Straits City News he was very proud of them but admitted they could be an inconvenience at times.

“I never go to crowded places. And during sleep, I have to keep my left wrist under my head to prevent the hand from moving,” says Li, who owns a grocery store.

The current length took 15 years to achieve, but he first started to grow them 23 years ago.
