This has me going WTF - not just about granny who was silly enough to lie on a baggage carousel but the daughter who sought refuge in the gents' toilet!

The carousel did start up at 2 a m apparently and Granny had to hop off quickly!

Excluding McCann stories, this has to be one of the silliest of the year.

Wonder what that headmistress would do with a kid going through chemotherapy causing hair to fall out.

The mind boggles.

I've heard of people marrying inanimate objects though, like the Eiffel Tower and the Berlin Wall. How the latter's wife coped when that was demolished, I don't know.

That's probably the one I saw too. Here is a fairly recent update on the Berlin Wall woman - she has turned her attention to fences!

This does sound a bit of an OTT reaction to being called a few names - you'd think that rugby players were used to it.

What a charmer and wonderfully intelligent too to put her house number on the note so that she could be identified.

Wow. It's almost as if those in the medical profession are conditioned to believe that everybody else is even stupider than they are.

My son is spitting feathers over this one - in bad taste admittedly but it really was just a joke.
