Odd News

(it's time for some good news!! but I couldn't find any.
so let's do Odd News instead.)

Here are a few odd stories I found today, with my comments at the end of each one in red.


Story # 1: Man Tied 15 Lizards To Chest At Airport

LOS ANGELES – Federal officials say they arrested a man who strapped 15 live lizards to his chest to get through customs at Los Angeles International Airport.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Friday that 40-year-old Michael Plank of Lomita, Calif., was returning from Australia when U.S. Customs agents found 11 skinks, two geckos and two monitor lizards fastened to his body Tuesday.

"Excuse me sir, could you explain those tails poking out between your buttons? And why is your carry-on bag full of crickets and spiders?"

Story # 2: Johnny Depp Named Sexiest Man Alive

Seriously? Who were the other candidates? Michael Moore and Homer Simpson?

Story # 3: Santa Gets A Face-Lift

WELLINGTON (Reuters) – A Santa in New Zealand with a droopy eye has received a NZ$100,000 ($74,000) face-lift in the run-up to Christmas so that his aging face does not scare children.

Hello ... you don't think the sight of THIS will scare the children??



  1. That's funny! And obviously, the sexiest man alive is Robert Pattinson!

  2. agreed on the johnny depp thing. some people just have no taste! lol...

  3. Johnny Depp out of character doesn't do a thing for me, but as pirate Jack Sparrow he melts my heart. I never realized I liked that bad boy image until him. You should make odd news a regular feature. Funny post.

  4. Tina: He's a cutie. WAY too young for me, though.

    Sarah: There are just so many other cuties out there! Mostly too young for me, though.

    Rae: That's a good idea! Maybe I'll do Sunday Odd News or something.

  5. I have a hygiene thing with men... so Johnny Depp really doesn't do it for me either.

    Great post!

  6. I bet the guy wearing the lizards looked pretty sexy!
