Satan Delivers Human Goat to South African Village

Sunday, June 25th, 2017 | Offbeat and Weird with Comments Off on Satan Delivers Human Goat to South African Village

Satan himself has delivered a human goat hybrid to a South African village. At least that’s what the villagers think. Stories about villages in South African are the best. There is some truth to the story. A deformed stillborn goat was born that had some resemblance to a human being. That part has been confirmed as true and the photo was all over social media. Authorities  believe the goat was infected with the Rift Valley Fever (RVF) which is spread by mosquitoes. Villagers believe it was Satan who orchestrated some kind of man on goat action to punish them and won’t be happy until the incarnation is burned. We are taking the side of the villagers on this one. Who believes in mosquito born illness anyways in this day and age.

German Customs Wages War on Fidget Spinners

Saturday, June 17th, 2017 | Offbeat and Weird with Comments Off on German Customs Wages War on Fidget Spinners

We haven’t been exposed to fidget spinners the way most people have with kids or those that toil in educational institutions but we can certainly see how they could drive a person crazy. There must be a big sigh of relief from teachers and parents all over Germany. The Frankfurt airport customs department has confiscated more than 35 metric tons of fidget spinners and plans on crushing them into another existence.

You will be surprised that the shipments came from China. German officials have determined that small bits of material could fall off of the fidget spinners and pose a hazard to small children. They were also concerned that there was no instructions and accompanying information from the manufacturer.

The photo below are not the fidget spinners in question. The photo is just used for illustrative purposes in case you have been vacationing on Mars for the past year.

President of Iceland Would Ban Pineapple Pizza Topping

Monday, February 20th, 2017 | Offbeat and Weird with Comments Off on President of Iceland Would Ban Pineapple Pizza Topping

There are probably not too many people that would disagree with him. Iceland President  Guðni Th. Jóhannesson told a crowd that he would ban pineapple as a pizza topping if he could. The president was visiting a school where he told the students that if he could pass laws on his own that he would ban pineapple from being a pizza topping.

If you are wondering about Hawaiian Pizza. It appears to be a Canadian thing. Sam Panopoulos claims that he created the first Hawaiian pizza at the Satellite Restaurant in Chatham, Ontario, Canada in 1962.  Some people get mixed up and call this a Canadian but a Canadian is pepperoni, bacon and mushroom.

Just as an update. The Pizza Topping War has taken on a new front. We might have to join this fight.

The Pineapple Pizza war took another strange turn over the weekend. Let hope that this gets retired soon.

Newspaper Uses Alec Baldwin Photo Instead of Trump

Sunday, February 12th, 2017 | Offbeat and Weird with Comments Off on Newspaper Uses Alec Baldwin Photo Instead of Trump

Alec Baldwin has been killing it lately on Saturday Night Live playing President Donald Trump. So much so that a newspaper from the Dominican Republic used his photo instead of one of the real Trump. The newspaper called El Nacional corrected the image but not before it caught fire online.  The photo made it rounds on Twitter and now lives forever. No word on whether Trump was impressed or not.

McDonald’s Angry Birds Burgers

Saturday, May 21st, 2016 | Offbeat and Weird with Comments Off on McDonald’s Angry Birds Burgers

When you first see McDonald’s Angry Birds Movie burgers you immediately think, Japan. But these movie themed sandwiches have been launched in China. Now China is taking fast food to an all new level. We don’t think you are going to see these any time soon at  your local McDonald’s and and maybe that is a good thing. The green Bad Piggy burgers get our stomachs an odd feeling.

The Naughty Green Pork Burger is a tribute to Bad Piggy from the Angry Birds movie. It features a large green bun, pork, fried egg, lettuce and sauce. Not so sure that green was the wisest choice for a bread color.

McDonald’s didn’t stop there. They have also released a red burger. The Angry Red Burger is another new promotion for the upcoming Angry Birds movie. Featuring a red bun this sandwich appears to be a double chicken burger. Red looks a lot more appetizing than green.

Man Constipated for 10 Years Has 11 Pounds of Poop Surgically Removed

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015 | Offbeat and Weird with Comments Off on Man Constipated for 10 Years Has 11 Pounds of Poop Surgically Removed

If I don’t have a movement for more than a day then I am hitting the fiber hard and getting business taken care of. Imagine going 10 years without a bowel movement.  A man from China contends that he we went that long and suffered all sorts of pains over that time period like severe stomach pain. You figure? Doctors finally found the problem. An 11 pound blockage of poop in his colon. The mass so big it actually shifted his heart to the right to make room. His condition actually has  name and it’s congenital megacolon which basically means you are full of it.

A few websites we read offered tips if you find yourself in this situation like drinking water and adding fiber to  your diet. Personally I would recommend getting yourself to the nearest Taco Bell or some thing similar. Usually cleans me out in a hurry.

We don’t really have an appropriate photo so here is one we took of the urinals at the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas.

Walmart Makes ISIS Cake but Not a Confederate Flat Cake

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015 | Offbeat and Weird with Comments Off on Walmart Makes ISIS Cake but Not a Confederate Flat Cake

It’s a crazy world we live in. Walmart recently announced that they won’t sell items that bear the Confederate Flag but they had no problem making a cake with the ISIS symbol on it for one Louisiana man.  Chuck Netzhammer ordered the image of the Confederate flag on a cake with the words, “Heritage Not Hate,” but was denied by his local Walmart. Instead he changed his order to a cake bearing the ISIS symbol and Walmart delivered.

Walmart has since come out and stated that the employee wasn’t aware of what the symbol meant and the cake should not have been made. Of course in banning the flag they stated they didn’t want to offend anybody.

I wonder if they would have made CNN”s version of the ISIS flag on a cake? That wouldn’t have offended anybody.
