Ummm... Other?

You Love Odd News

Thong burglar:

A northern Kentucky man wearing only a thong and carrying a knife allegedly videotaped himself attempting a burglary, then left the tape behind, police said. That evidence ultimately led to his arrest, Fort Mitchell Police Chief Steve Hensley said.
Investigating officers found a video camera the burglar left in the apartment, Hensley said, and found video of McMillen's family on the end of the tape, Hensley said.

Investigators were able to identify some of them and tracked down McMillen at his mother's house in Norwood, Ohio, Hensley said.


A 73yr old, machete wielding car salesman:

A 73-year-old used car salesman allegedly ended an argument with a customer by pulling out a machete and whacking the man's arm, according to police.
According to police, Gerald Davis had purchased a car from Time Auto Sales and went back to the dealership to pick up his license plates. Police said Davis, 53, and Parker began arguing and eventually Parker produced the machete.

Don't mess with the elderly.

I'm With the Panda

A panda, whose enclosure was invaded by a drunk man, defended its home by biting the guy in the leg. I agree with the last quote in the article that says the guy deserved to get bitten.

Zhang Xinyan, a building worker on holiday from China's central Henan province, climbed into an enclosure that held Gu Gu, a seven-year-old panda, at Beijing Zoo after the man had drunk four pints of beer during lunch at a nearby restaurant, the Yanzhao Metropolis Daily said.

Zhang, who couldn't remember the incident clearly, had wanted to hug the panda and shake its hand after having watched similar scenes on television.


"I took the opportunity to bite the panda's back, but its fur was too thick," Zhang said.

The guy then has the nerve to complain that he's been humiliated because the story is all over the news. Yeah, i think if you get drunk (at lunchtime, no less) and make an ass of yourself, you deserve a little humiliation, too.

I feel severely cheated. I never got character mooncakes. I only got the regular ones with the Chinese characters and designs.

Take That, Twiggy!

Overly skinny models are banned from Madrid's catwalks. Milan possibly will follow example in their upcoming fashion week.

Madrid's fashion week has turned away underweight models after protests that girls and young women were trying to copy their rail-thin looks and developing eating disorders.

Organizers say they want to project an image of beauty and health, rather than a waif-like, or heroin chic look.


The Madrid show is using the body mass index or BMI -- based on weight and height -- to measure models. It has turned away 30 percent of women who took part in the previous event. Medics will be on hand at the September 18-22 show to check models.

Some modeling agency is outraged at the possible discrimination of "naturally 'gazelle-like' models". Right. They're naturally 6 ft tall and 100 lbs.
