That was certainly an expensive meal.

Goodness knows how she managed to swallow them.

The same goes for those people you see in programmes like Border Patrol and Anything to Declare who have hidden drugs internally, usually wrapped in condoms.......

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4485914/Eerie-occurrences-reported-Ted-Bundy-s-childhood-home.html

Contractor hired to fix up childhood home of serial killer Ted Bundy reveals eerie occurrences that had him writing Bible verses on the walls and summoning priests for help
Washington state contractor Casey Clopton was hired last year to renovate house in Tacoma, Washington, where Ted Bundy had lived as a child
Bundy went on to kill at least 30 people in 11 states in the 1970s, resulting in his execution in 1989
Clopton said the first time he came by the house with his 11-year-old daughter, the girl started crying and said the residence made her feel weird
During renovation, workers found the words 'Help me' written on basement window' and the word 'Leave' written in dust on a bedroom floor
One time, crew unlocked the house to find every door inside ajar; another time, a heavy cabinet toppled over
Clopton eventually invited two priests to bless the house; they recommended that the workers write Scripture verses on the walls and play Christian music
The newly renovated and painted house eventually sold for $335,000

An Iranian student had to be taken to a police station at the weekend - because he looks too much like Lionel Messi.
So many people in the city of Hamaden wanted a picture with Reza Parastesh that police took him to the station and impounded his car to stop the chaos.


... Blimey - he looks identical.

Not a strange or weird one as such. Didn't know where to put it. It's actually very cute. It was just the title that made me chuckle:

Not sure where to put this one I was just reading. I'll stick it here anyway:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4501430/The-unlikely-runaways-ve-stolen-Britain-s-hearts.html

The unlikely runaways who've stolen Britain's hearts: Sniffer dogs, pet detectives, an army of volunteers and even a £1,000 reward... so where are Bella the lamb and sheepdog Blake?

It is thought they escaped but council has warned they may have been stolen
Distraught owner said: 'When I came back I saw the gate open and they'd gone'
Anyone with information about Bella and Blake should should email Jordanknight94@hotmail.co.uk or Natalie.haywood@icloud.com

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4510994/Attorneys-fued-man-s-intent-jury-penis.html

'Is it going to be erect, or is it going to be flaccid?' Attorneys battle in court over murder suspect's desire to show jury his penis which he claims his girlfriend, 60, accidentally choked on while giving him oral sex
Richard Henry Patterson, 65, of Margate, Florida, charged with second-degree murder in October 2015 asphyxiation death of Francisca Marquinez
According to defense, Marquinez, who had at least one son, accidentally choked on Patterson's outsized manhood during consensual oral sex
Patterson's attorney asked a judge Monday to allow his client to present his penis to the jury so they could better understand expert testimony
A prosecutor insisted that, if shown to the jury, the penis must be erect, not flaccid
'I'm assuming the size of the penis does matter for the defense,' Assistant State Attorney Peter Sapak told the court

I've put your hair-raising story (sorry) here in the weird section, Rosa.

I seem to recall something similar in the U K. I can't find that one but here's a story about someone who claimed damages for a power cut in his cell.

http://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/wales-news/prisoner-handed-4000-damages-because-11963972

Another case with a claim for being handcuffed was rejected though.

It's possible Andrew has already posted a link to this, if so please delete my post.  Anyway the innocent guy must have a very forgiving nature  -  he spent 17 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit yet he "feels blessed"  ...       Must say they really do look alike.       affraid

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4592556/Dad-free-prison-police-lookalike.html
'I don't believe in luck, I believe I was blessed': Kansas father is finally released from prison after 17 years, when police find his lookalike who eerily shared his first name
Richard Anthony Jones from Kansas City was jailed for armed robbery in 1999
Was convicted based on an eyewitness account and sentenced to 19 years
Heard rumors about man in prison who looked like him and shared his first name
Contacted pro bono lawyers to appeal his case since the man lived closer to the area where the crime was committed

Weird even by your usual standards!

I googled the picture and this is what came up.

Best guess for this image: childbirth
