Today’s only in America tale is bought to you by fine American heroes at NASA who drive the Space Shuttle whilst drunk.

I would imagine that being blotto in Space would be fun, and imagine the toilet humor; shit flying would take on a whole new meaning.

Spot question: how the fark do you random breath test someone driving a space shuttle?

Funny Pownce Moment

I’m on Scoble’s good side these days, but I kid you not: I went to add Scoble as a friend is Pownce, typed in “Robert Scoble” and this is what I got in return:


I was looking for a podcasting mic and I found this by accident: 

Skype Phone & Mouse in 1 – Yappermouse – VoIP Phones – Deals Direct Australia


Just what everyone wants, a corded mouse that doubles as a VOIP telephone handset….note again it’s a corded mouse.

But it gets better, the mouse vibrates!


This is just bizarre…apparently he’s on ER now, I’d think as a mental patient.

This is insane. And yet amazing at the same time.

What the?


THOUSANDS of Japanese have been swindled in a scam in which they were sold Australian and British sheep and told they were poodles…

The scam was uncovered when Japanese film star Maiko Kawamaki went on a talk-show and wondered why her new pet would not bark or eat dog food.

She was crestfallen when told it was a sheep.

Hundreds of other women got in touch with police to say they feared their new “poodle” was also a sheep.

One couple said they became suspicious when they took their “dog” to have its claws trimmed and were told it had hooves.

Police believe there could be 2000 people affected by the scam.

Have you been sold a sheep thinking it was a poodle…or a cat, or even a bird? Or perhaps your poodle bleats and shits all over the place?

This has got to top the weird news stories for 2007.

mandyLooks like Crikey was right: Jabba the Hut is going to Rome. Lock up the spaghetti bars, arm the pizza joints, Mandy Vandy is now Australian Ambassador to Italy. Is she sings “Under Southern Stars” more than once during her stay I’m predicting war between Australia and Italy shortly there after…and I’d be forced to side with the Italians. Mama Mia!

Photo Caption: Fido looking relieved knowing that he was now safe from being eaten.

Worth a laugh:

According to the SMH, this is a picture of French Presidential Candidate Nicolas Sarkozy on the campaign trail. Gotta love the tractor:


From the SMH:

Tourism New Zealand has admitted it digitally enhanced the latest images of scenic New Zealand spots in its 100 per cent Pure New Zealand campaign.

No word yet if it was a matter of just cutting out the sheep 🙂
