That’s some spicy pickle


A burglar in Poland who stole a dozen jars of home-made pickles was caught after choking on his ill-gotten gherkins.

Piotr Gorski was found spluttering and blue in the face just two streets away from the crime scene.

Best if used by 2006…

NZ Herald

A Dargaville [NZ] man thought he had hit the jackpot when he discovered a full treasure chest on a local beach.

Locals found the wooden and leather trimmed case at Glinks Gully on Sunday night, after bad weather washed it ashore.

Geoff Nichols says when they dragged it to the dunes the latch fell off and it opened. He says it was full to the brim with Cadbury Crunchie bars and Milky Ways and all sorts of other goodies.

A Lancashire man claims a tornado prevented a UFO from landing near where he stood. Pat Regan claims he was nearly blown off his feet in Rufford as he photographed the tornado during a fishing trip.

When he got home he enlarged the picture on his computer and spotted the UFO.
