Cool ‘stache, Bro! Rock on!

Primates of the human variety like many different types of music – from classical to rap to country to rock- but monkeys are a little pickier. Researchers in Bejing have recently found that monkeys were calmed by heavy metal while ignoring other kinds of music.

Shouldn’t have had that last serving of sauerkraut

An Austrian man has been fined £45 for breaking wind while he was being questioned by police officers.

Police in Graz said the laughter of passers-by humiliated them, giving them grounds to book Hansi Sporer, 20, under local anti police abuse laws.

“This was no accident. He clearly intended to make a laughing stock out of the officers and deserved what he got,” said one police source.

9 Year old fish terrorist? Or idiot security guard?

Security guards reduced a nine-year-old boy to tears after banning him from sailing his toy boat on a pond because it ‘frightens the fish’.

Noah Bailey was distraught after staff at Chiswick Business Park, in west London, stopped him playing with his model of the German battleship Bismarck.

His grandfather Paul Fabricius, 57, said that when they went to complain about the draconian rule the guard refused to tell him the name of the manager for ‘security reasons’.

That’s fine police work. Lou. Can’t have frightened fish now, can we? [There’s a eason that real police officers call security gueards “Rent-A-Cops.]
