Friday weird Stuff

Just a few humorous snapshots from Kate's Happy Planet™ :

Woman's Belly Gets $4,000 on eBay

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. - A woman selling advertising on her pregnant belly will receive $4,050 from the highest eBay auction bidder, Golden Palace Casino.

Amber Rainey will have the online casino's Web site temporarily tattooed to her stomach Thursday. It will remain until she delivers her first child, due on March 21.

No wonder I could never make any money on eBay, despite Dick Cheney's assertation that I could do so. My gut wasn't big enough.

Doctor Fakes Insanity to Avoid Military

OSLO, Norway - A Norwegian doctor called in for military service would have made the malingering Cpl. Klinger of "M A S H" proud.

The doctor rubbed sour cream in his hair, poured sticky liqueur in his shoes, spilled beer on his clothes and sat in a closet smoking 40 cigarettes at once in a bid to convince the military that he wasn't fit mentally for service, the Fredrikstad Blad newspaper reported Thursday...

I hope this doc wasn't scheduled to conduct any neurosurgery on this particular day. Seems like kind of an "Alice's Restaurant" type approach to service avoidance. But 40 butts at once in a closet?

Talk about smokin'...
