Who said anything about the women being strange?

Yahoo! News
Sweden – A soccer game between Muslim imams and Christian priests at the end of a conference to promote interfaith dialogue was canceled Saturday because the teams could not agree on whether women priests should take part.

Church of Norway spokesman Olav Fykse Tveit said the imams refused to play against a mixed-gender team of priests because it would have gone against their beliefs in avoiding close physical contact with strange women.

Scary cat, eh?

cat.jpg Canada’s postal system has stopped delivering mail to a home in Winnipeg, Manitoba, after a mail carrier was scared away by a “very threatening cat,” the Winnipeg Free Press said Friday.

A Canada Post spokeswoman said the agency was concerned about the safety of its carriers, although it hoped for an amicable solution to its dispute with cat-owner John Samborski.

“The letter carrier who delivers mail there … was brought up on a farm, she is very comfortable with animals,” spokeswoman Kathi Neal told the newspaper. “Apparently this is a very threatening cat.”

Had a neighbor once that had a big, nasty old tom cat that would climb up on the porch roof and lay in wait for the mailman, then drop down on his head and shoulders and attack.

Spiders in his ear

Yahoo News
These guys werent exactly Snap, Crackle and Pop. What began as a faint popping in a 9-year-old [Albany, Oregon] boy’s ear — “like Rice Krispies” — ended up as an earache, and the doctors diagnosis was that a pair of spiders made a home in the ear.

“They were walking on my eardrums,” Jesse Courtney said.

One of the spiders was still alive after the doctor flushed the fourth-graders left ear canal. His mother, Diane Courtney, said her son insisted he kept hearing a faint popping in his ear — “like Rice Krispies.”

………………….

Both spiders were about the size of a pencil eraser. The doctor put them in a little bottle and Jesse took them to school for show and tell.
