No carping about this car…

Residents could be forgiven for thinking ‘Oh my Cod’, after a local artist transformed his car into a fish.
Andy Hazell, who is also a builder, has spent ‘thousands of pounds’ transforming his Vauxhall Corsa van into an 18ft model of a fish.

He said: “I get plenty of fishy looks from people, but I generally have a whale of a time with it. Some people think I am a bit mad, but I love building strange things. These days it seems that car makers love a slippery and aerodynamic design, so I thought to myself, a fish is the next step.”

“The car has a hydraulic system fitted to it so it can swish its tail and open and close its mouth.”

A Scottsdale man inadvertently shot himself in the buttocks Thursday morning. Scottsdale police Sgt. Mark Clark says 26-year-old Daniel Leatherman heard a disturbance outside his apartment and saw a man he knew fighting with a cab driver.

Leatherman told police that the man, 25-year-old Cody Nunn, had assaulted him in the past, so he grabbed his gun and went outside. Leatherman told police that he accidentally dropped the gun while hiding it behind his back and shot himself in the derriere.

The real reason the shuttle was delayed… an attack by a giant spider


A giant spider attacked the Atlantis space shuttle as it attempted to blast off.


At least that’s how it appeared when a spider crawled onto Nasa’s launch camera at Cape Canaveral in Florida.

For 26 seconds, it could be seen on webcam appearing to take a bite out of the shuttle as it sat on the launch pad awaiting lift-off.
