Woman Goes for Leg Operation, Gets New Anus Instead

A German retiree is taking a hospital to court after she went in for a leg operation and got a new anus instead, the Daily Telegraph is reporting.

The woman woke up to find she had been mixed up with another patient suffering from incontinence who was to have surgery on her sphincter.

The clinic in Hochfranken, Bavaria, has since suspended the surgical team.

Now the woman is planning to sue the hospital. She still needs the leg operation and is searching for another hospital to do it.


Thief forgets to take son on getaway

Friday, March 21, 2008 A shoplifter looking to make a quick getaway from a Dutch supermarket after stealing a packet of meat left police a crucial piece of evidence - his 12-year-old son.

In his haste, the 45-year-old thief made a solo dash to his car, batting away a supermarket worker who had flung himself on the vehicles' bonnet in a bid to stop the escape.

Police in the southern Dutch town of Kerkrade said they managed to contact the thief via the boy, but he had refused to return and collect his son.

I would not throw myself on the hood of a car to stop a guy from stealing a packet of meat.

Also, there's a horrible joke about breaking a foot off in an ass in there somewhere, but I can't find it.

Makes me think of Marty Shonson.

Trunk-cam reveals jungle secrets

Cameras held by elephants' trunks have been used to provide an intimate view of tigers in the jungle.
Because the big cats are used to the presence of elephants, the tusked giants were able to get far closer to them than a human film crew ever could.

Thanks to the "trunk-cams", the team was able to follow four newborn tiger cubs all the way through to adulthood.

The footage was recorded over a period of three years in the Pench National Park in India.

The cameras also recorded other animals, including langur monkeys, sloth bears and red dogs.

In every group of doctors, there's at least one extra asshole.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

Well, many dutch cars are teeny tiny so maybe it's not such a big deal to fling your body on top of a moving one....

Emo kids attacked in the streets of Mexico

"LA Weekly's Daniel Hernandez has been covering the phenomenon for the paper and on his blog Intersections. "A bizarre wave of emo-bashings is sweeping across Mexico. The movement is being generated on message boards and social networking sites by non-emo youth who highly dislike the emo look and attitude.  Hernandez reports that it started on March 7th in Queretaro where about 800 young people hunted down emos in the city's Centro Historico for some head bashing. "The next weekend it spread to Mexico City, where emos faced off against punks and rockabillies at the Glorieta de Insurgents, the epicenter of emo social space in the capital."

'Wombat rape victim' cried wolf
A man who told police he had been raped by a wombat has, perhaps not surprisingly, failed to substantiate his claim in court.

In fact, Arthur Ross Cradock has ended up in the dock himself and been ordered to do 75 hours' community work for wasting police time.

Not only did he make up the wombat rape story, but the New Zealander also insisted the trauma of the attack had left him "speaking Australian".
