A Chinese man says his dog has become something of a local celebrity – after taking up fishing.

Mr Lin, of Wuchang in central China’s Hubei province, told the Wuhan Evening Post that Ding Ding had always loved water.

“I often swim in Donghu Lake, and used to leave him on the bank to take care of my clothes and valuables. But he couldn’t stop jumping into the water and swimming with me,” he said. “When he was swimming, he would bite anything floating in the water, like bottles, foam rubber, or dead fish, and bring them back to the bank. But several days ago he suddenly started catching live fish from the lake. Within 10 minutes he had brought back three big fish, weighing more than 3kg.”

Translucent aliens with cone shaped faces? Right.

According to a MUFON report, a woman in Wisconsin spotted three translucent beings – whom she believes are of extra-dimensional origin – sitting in the trees outside her window.

At around 10:00 AM in the first week of July, 2009, the woman states she had been sitting watching television in a recliner, with a clear shot out the window when the beings appeared…

The woman said their faces were cone-shaped, their arms were extremely long. and she couldn’t make out any features on the strange conical snouts.

The teaspoon as a deadly weapon

A British market is apologizing to a woman after she was carded for trying to buy a packet of teaspoons.

The Daily Mail reports that a Tesco employee in Evesham, Worcestershire asked Emma Sheppard, 21, to show her ID as she was checking out with a packet of five teaspoons on Monday. Tesco recently implemented a “Think 25” campaign, which asks customers to show their ID when buying certain items if they look under 25.

“When the assistant asked me for ID, I thought [my husband] John had sneakily put some booze in the trolley, but then when she held up a pack of spoons, we looked at her like she was an idiot,” Sheppard said.
