    LITTLE CHUTE, Wis. (AP) - Martha Haupt says coping with a change
    of address after more than five decades in the same house isn't
    easy - especially when she hasn't moved.
    Haupt, 89, has a typed sign taped to the kitchen table so she
    won't forget the new address that the village recently assigned to
    her home on McKinley Street.
    The village decided her address was out of sequence with other
    homes on the block. It should be even-numbered but instead was odd.
    That's something her late husband pointed out when they moved in
    55 years ago. He petitioned to have it changed then to no avail.
    "The village thought it was no big deal for a long time," said
    Haupt's daughter, Carol Baker, of Darboy.
    Haupt wants the village to relent and let her use the original
    address as long as she still lives on the same street.
    "I know I'm on the wrong side of the street," she said. "Half
    of Little Chute has wrong numbers."
    "I thought they could wait until I moved into an apartment."
    But community development director Jim Moes said that is
    unlikely. He said the village makes arrangements for address
    changes with utilities, emergency services and county mapmakers.
    The Haupt home was one of two that had address changes this
    time. Residents must also change the address posted on their homes,
    which Haupt has done.

    Default Oops!!

    Sweden's state broadcaster SVT embarrassed by porn mishap
    STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) - Sweden's state broadcaster SVT on
    Monday faced ridicule for mistakenly showing a porn movie in the
    background of a news broadcast over the weekend.
    Viewers of a 5-minute news update at midnight Saturday could see
    explicit scenes from a Czech porn movie on a TV screen behind news
    anchor Peter Dahlgren.
    The monitor - one of many on the wall of a control room visible
    behind the studio - normally shows other news channels during
    broadcasts. But staffers who earlier in the evening had watched a
    sports event on cable channel Canal Plus - which often shows
    X-rated films after midnight - had forgotten to switch it back,
    said news director Per Yng.
    "This is highly embarrassing and unfortunate," Yng said. "It
    must not happen again."
    A producer quickly spotted the sex scenes and ran into the
    control room and turned off the monitor, Yng said.
    He said there had been no complaints from viewers about the
    mishap, but "enormous interest from media."
    Swedish tabloids on Monday poked fun at the steamy broadcast,
    jokingly changing the name of the show - Rapport - to "Rapporn."
    Magnus Akerlund, who oversees the hourly news updates, told
    tabloid Expressen he was "shocked and dismayed" at the mistake.
    "It's a huge blunder by us," he said.

    Talking Young Driver...

    BERLIN, Aug 21 (Reuters) - Police investigating a complaint
    about a van disrupting morning traffic on Monday in the German
    city of Goettingen were surprised to discover a 5-year-old boy
    behind the wheel.
    "He was seemingly intent on experiencing the daily traffic
    chaos and simply jumped behind the wheel of his dad's Mercedes
    Vito and went off to explore," police spoksman said.
    During his short journey, the toddler stalled the van
    several times in the middle of the road and a passer-by alerted
    police. The boy and the vehicle were returned to his father
    unharmed.

    Question Now ain't this weird

    KOLKATA, India, Aug 21 (Reuters) - Islamic clerics in
    eastern India have ruled that a woman divorced by her husband
    in a fit of drunkenness can remarry him only after she takes
    another husband for one day, police said on Monday.
    Ershad, a rickshaw puller, uttered the word "talaq", or
    divorce, three times earlier this month while he was drunk, and
    when news leaked out in their village in eastern Orissa state,
    the clerics said they must separate.
    "The couple had kept it under wraps and continued to stay
    together but the clerics ruled that since Ershad uttered the
    word talaq three times, it constituted a divorce," district
    police chief Shatrughan Parida said over the telephone.
    Under the rules, the woman, who is a mother of three, must
    marry another man and obtain a divorce from him before she can
    be reunited with Ershad, the clerics in the local mosque said.
    The clerics have said the man the woman marries temporarily
    must be 70 years of age, Parida said.
    Muslims, who constitute more than 13 percent of India's
    mainly Hindu population, are governed by special personal laws
    including marriage laws. But in many remote rural areas, it is
    the local clerics who pass diktats on social issues before they
    reach the courts.
    Earlier this year, another Muslim couple in neighbouring
    West Bengal state was told by local religious leaders they must
    separate after the man uttered "talaq" thrice in his sleep.
    They refused the order and continue to live together.

    Post Got Milk?

    Indians rush to temples to feed "thirsty" idols
    LUCKNOW, India, Aug 21 (Reuters) - Thousands of people
    flocked to temples across India on Monday following reports
    that idols of Hindu gods were drinking milk given by devotees
    as sacred offerings, witnesses said.
    Teenagers, adults and the aged stood in long lines with
    garlands and bowls of milk to feed the idols of Lord Shiva,
    Lord Krishna and the elephant-headed Lord Ganesha, they said.
    Hundreds chanted hymns in the northern city of Lucknow and
    the eastern city of Kolkata and went into hysterics when the
    milk held against the idols disappeared.
    "It is amazing, Lord Ganesha drank milk from my hands. Now
    he will answer all my prayers," said Surama Dasgupta, a
    middle-aged woman in Kolkata.
    The frenzy began late on Sunday in some northern cities and
    soon spread across the country, including the capital New
    Delhi, even as rationalists and non-believers called it mass
    hysteria.
    A similar mania gripped the country in 1995 when thousands
    of Hindus fed milk in spoons to marble idols of Lord Ganesha.
    That rumour spread across the globe and there were reports
    of Hindu deities drinking milk in London, New York and Italy.
    "It is very natural for any stone idol to absorb any liquid
    and the older the stone the more it absorbs," M.P. Singh, a
    geology professor at Lucknow University, told Reuters.
    The "milk miracle" came days after thousands of people in
    the financial hub of Mumbai drank water from a murky Arabian
    Sea creek as they thought it had miraculously turned sweet and
    could cure illnesses.
    But police stepped in and stopped people after Mumbai's
    civic officials said the water could have temporarily lost its
    salinity due to pollution and inflow of freshwater from a
    nearby source.

    Wink Tickets to Nepali anyone?

    Nepali women strip and plough to appease rain gods
    KATHMANDU, Aug 20 (Reuters) - Dozens of Nepali women
    stripped naked and ploughed their fields in west Nepal, hoping
    to appease the gods and get some much needed rain, a newspaper
    report said on Sunday.
    About 50 women in two villages in Kapilvastu district, 190
    km (120 miles) west of Kathmandu, resorted to the desperate
    move at night on Friday as days of prayers and Hindu ceremonies
    failed to bring rains for the parched paddy crop, it said.
    "This is our last weapon, we used it, and there was light
    rainfall," Nepali daily Rajdhani quoted one of the women as
    saying.
    Although there is no clear religious basis for the
    practice, some locals believe such a move could appease the
    rain gods.
    Officials said there was insufficient rain during the
    June-September monsoon season this year and vast stretches of
    land along the southern plains, Nepal's bread basket, were
    parched.

    Exclamation Two????

    Indian man wants op to remove extra organ
    NEW DELHI, Aug 19 (Reuters) - An Indian businessman born
    with two penises wants one of them removed surgically as he
    wants to marry and lead a normal sexual life, a newspaper
    report said on Saturday.
    The 24-year-old man from the northern state of Uttar
    Pradesh admitted himself to a New Delhi hospital this week with
    an extremely rare medical condition called penile duplication
    or diphallus, the Times of India said.
    "Two fully functional penes is unheard of even in medical
    literature. In the more common form of diphallus, one organ is
    rudimentary," the newspaper quoted a surgeon as saying.
    The surgery was expected to be challenging as both organs
    were well-formed and full blood supply to the retained penis
    had to be ensured to allow it to function normally, he added.
    The newspaper did not disclose the identity of the man or
    the hospital to protect the patient's privacy.
    There are about 100 such reported cases of diphallus around
    the world and it is known to occur among one in 5.5 million
    men, the newspaper said.
    It is caused by the failure of the mesodermal bands in the
    embryo to fuse properly. The mesodermal bands are one of three
    primary layers of the embryo from which several body parts are
    formed.

    Indians drink "divine" sea water as it turns sweet
    MUMBAI, Aug 19 (Reuters) - Thousands of Indians drank from
    a murky Arabian Sea creek after news spread overnight that its
    water had miraculously turned sweet and could cure illnesses,
    police said on Saturday.
    About 5,000 people gathered at the creek in India's biggest
    city of Mumbai overnight, and many of them were seen drinking
    the dirty water with their palms, they said.
    "Sweet seawater, this is a miracle. This water is divine,"
    Sheikh Naseer, a Mumbai resident, told a local TV news channel.
    He was also shown giving a young boy a bath in the creek's
    murky waters that receive thousands of tonnes of sewage and
    industrial waste every day.
    Some people carried seawater away in bottles and plastic
    bags, saying they were going to share it with their families.
    Children as well as adults bathed in the murky water in which
    garbage and plastic were seen floating.
    Police said the news spread after some fishermen tasted the
    water and found it sweet and told local residents about it.
    "There has been a mad rush to the creek. There is a dargah
    nearby and people felt this is something divine," said S.
    Kumar, a police officer, referring to an Islamic mausoleum in
    the area.
    But police stepped in and stopped people from going to the
    creek on Saturday after authorities and doctors warned that the
    water could be polluted and drinking it could be dangerous.
    Mumbai's civic officials said the water could have
    temporarily lost its salinity due to several reasons, including
    pollution and inflow of freshwater from a nearby source.
    "We have collected a sample of the water and sent it for
    testing," a city official said, adding that the water in the
    creek had returned to being saline.
    Last year three people drowned in the Arabian Sea off
    Mumbai after thousands of people made a dash for a beach where
    diamonds were rumoured to be washing ashore.

    Post Psycho Killer Raccoons

    OLYMPIA, Washington (AP) - A fierce group of raccoons is on the
    loose in Olympia, Washington. Locals say some people have taken to
    carrying pepper spray to ward off the masked marauders. They say
    one woman who was bitten and had to get rabies shots now carries an
    iron pipe when she goes out at night. The raccoons have reportedly
    killed ten cats and attacked a small dog. Some neighbors have
    started a raccoon watch and say the urban raccoons aren't afraid of
    people or small family pets. A state wildlife official says raccoon
    attacks on people and pets are highly unusual. Residents may or may
    not want to handle the situation themselves. State officials remind
    them that trappers can be summoned from the Department of
    Agriculture to remove problem animals.

    Default Fried Worms??

    NEW YORK - So you want to eat fried worms, eh? Despite the
    gross-out factor, it wouldn't be the most outlandish thing you
    could do. Worms, it turns out, are a good source of protein. In
    many parts of the world, they're a delicacy. The new movie, "How
    to Eat Fried Worms," which opens this week, has a character who
    eats worms. Wonder if he knows that worms are served like bar nuts
    in Thailand and as sun-dried snacks in southern Africa, and are on
    a "Bug Bistro" menu at the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History
    in Halifax, Canada. Cooked, they've been compared to potato chips
    and beef jerky. Gene Rurka, the exotic-food chairman of the famed
    Explorers Club in New York, says "insects don't look good." He
    says people need a comfort level. That's the thinking behind his
    trademarked Wormzel, a worm pretzel that he said made the idea of
    eating a nightcrawler more palatable to guests at the last
    Explorers Club dinner, where many so-called exotic foods are
    served.

    You're KIDDING.... right?

    Bridesmaid Was Real Chicken

    POSTED: 7:32 am EDT August 21, 2006

    BISMARCK, N.D. -- Chicken was a part of the wedding of Terry Morris and Renee Biwer, but it had nothing to do with the menu or the name of a popular dance.

    Henrietta the hen was a bridesmaid. She's also the pet of the groom.

    Terry Morris has had Henrietta for 12 years, ever since the hen came into his wheel alignment shop in Olympia, Wash.

    He said he kept the hen a secret from his bride-to-be at first because he didn't want her to think he was crazy. She didn't, and the couple now travel with Henrietta and keep her in hotel rooms with them.

    The new Mrs. Morris said Henrietta is part of the family, and "like one of our children," it's important to include her.

    Talking

    Police crack down on striptease funerals...
    BEIJING (Reuters) - Striptease send-offs at funerals may
    become a thing of the past in east China after five people were
    arrested for organizing the intimate farewells, state media
    reported on Wednesday.
    Police swooped last week after two groups of strippers gave
    "obscene performances" at a farmer's funeral in Donghai County,
    Jiangsu province, Xinhua news agency said.
    The disrobing served a higher purpose, the report noted.
    "Striptease used to be a common practice at funerals in
    Donghai's rural areas to allure viewers," it said. "Local
    villagers believe that the more people who attend the funeral,
    the more the dead person is honored."
    Wealthy families often employed two troupes of performers
    to attract a crowd. Two hundred showed up at last week's
    funeral.

    Talking Weed?

    PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - A Yavapai County sheriff's deputy
    patrolling a senior housing development outside Prescott Wednesday
    spotted a 5-foot-tall marijuana plant growing between two
    residents' driveways.
    Deputy Justin Dwyer got out, identified the plant and
    interviewed the residents, spokeswoman Susan Quayle said. They told
    the deputy they thought the plant was "just an attractive weed,
    and they had been watering it because it looked so nice."
    Quayle said it appeared the plant was growing wild and probably
    sprouted from a stray seed. Dwyer told the homeowners he would have
    to confiscate it and asked them to call deputies if more were
    found.

    Default Milking this story........

    Cows 'moo' with an accent, farmers believe
    LONDON, Aug 23 (Reuters) - Cows have regional accents,
    a group of British farmers claims, and phonetics experts
    say the idea is not as far-fetched as it sounds.
    Lloyd Green, from southwest England, was one of a group
    of farmers who first noticed the phenomenon.
    "I spend a lot of time with my Friesians and they
    definitely 'moo' with a Somerset drawl," he said, referring
    to the breed of dairy cow he owns.
    "I've spoken to the other farmers in the West Country
    group and they have noticed a similar development in their
    own herds.
    "I think it works the same as with dogs - the closer a
    farmer's bond is with his animals, the easier it is for
    them to pick up his accent."
    Dom Lane, spokesman for a group called the West Country
    Farmhouse Cheesemakers to which Green belongs, said it
    contacted John Wells, Professor of Phonetics at University
    College London, who said that a similar phenomenon had been
    found in birds.
    "You find distinct chirping accents in the same species
    around the country. This could also be true of cows," Wells
    said on the group's Web site
    (www.farmhousecheesemakers.com).
    According to Lane, accents among cows probably develop
    in a similar way as among humans, and resulted from
    spending time with farmers with differing accents.
    "Apparently the biggest influence on accents is peer
    groups - on children in the playground, for example," he
    said. "Herds are quite tight-knit communities and don't
    tend to leave the area."
    He added that more scientific research was needed to
    prove what was just an anecdotal theory at this stage.

    Hundreds Of Human Body Parts Recalled

    POSTED: 11:07 am EDT August 23, 2006

    WASHINGTON -- The booming tissue transplant industry is facing its second scandal in less than a year.

    This time, a leading medical firm is recalling hundreds of human tissue products destined for transplants around the nation.

    The tissue products were supplied by a North Carolina body parts broker who used an unsterile embalming room to carve up dozens of corpses.

    The FDA shut down Donor Referral Services last week, citing serious deficiencies in its processing, donor screening and record-keeping.

    There was no word on how many people received potentially contaminated tissue.

    Tissue that is not properly processed or poorly tested can lead to infections like hepatitis or AIDS or even death.

    Last year, Biomedical Tissue Services of New Jersey was accused of using stolen bodies and of shipping nearly 20,000 potentially tainted body parts.

    Cadaver tissue is regularly used in operations such as back surgery and knee repairs.

    Wife Runs Over Husband Sleeping In Driveway
    Man Says He'd Been Drinking Alcohol

    POSTED: 8:44 am EDT August 24, 2006

    ROGERS, Ark. -- An Arkansas man who fell asleep in his driveway woke up when his wife came home and turned into the driveway to park the car and ran over him.

    Kristine Bolson told the Benton County Sheriff's Office that she drove into her driveway shortly after midnight Tuesday and heard a loud cracking sound. She said that when she got out of her vehicle, she heard moaning and found her husband, Richard Gonzalez, on the ground near her vehicle. Bolson said she did not initially see her husband in the driveway.

    A sheriff's reports said Gonzales told them he had been drinking and he must have passed out. He was treated at a hospital for scratches and bruises.

    one woman who was bitten and had to get rabies shots now carries an
    iron pipe when she goes out at night. The raccoons have reportedly
    killed ten cats and attacked a small dog. Some neighbors have
    started a raccoon watch and say the urban raccoons aren't afraid of
    people or small family pets. A state wildlife official says raccoon
    attacks on people and pets are highly unusual. Residents may or may
    not want to handle the situation themselves. State officials remind
    them that trappers can be summoned from the Department of
    Agriculture to remove problem animals.

    And we thought the only problem in Olympia was the politicians....

    (ya know, I prefer the racoons myself!)

    Wonder if she backed up? "Gee, what did I hit?"

    Post Do you find her stimulating?

    Pregnant Spears ad too "stimulating" for metro
    TOKYO (Reuters) - Tokyo's subway has refused permission for
    an advertising poster featuring a nude and heavily pregnant
    Britney Spears, branding it "too stimulating" for young people.
    The picture of the pop singer -- nude but covering her
    breasts with her arms and crossing her legs at the knee --
    appeared in the August issue of Harper's Bazaar and will be on
    the cover of the magazine's Japanese edition in October.
    The publishers had hoped to display the cover photo for a
    week at a subway station in a trendy part of central Tokyo, but
    ran into resistance.
    "We thought some of our customers would find it to be
    overly stimulating," said a Tokyo Metro official.
