News of the Weird

Just had to have my funnybone tickled today. I found some hilarious news items.
This one was in the Daily Telegraph in London (sometime in September)
In September, the headmistress of the Dvergsnes primary school in Kristiansand, Norway, proposed that boys be taught to urinate while seated, in order to reduce splashing and mis-targeting, which burden the cleaning staff, but many parents and politicians reacted bitterly. Said Vidar Kleppe of the Justice and Order party, "It's a human right (for a boy) not to have to sit down like a girl," adding that the school was "fiddling with God's work."

Oh, and then there is the one about the soccer coach who drew a smiley face on her stomach. The coaching association didn't approve of her "lifting her shirt" to make her 7 and 8 year old team member's laugh. It just didn't fit with their image.

Any time you need to laugh...just head over to your local newspaper or Google "weird news"
I had a chuckle.

Hey, happy NaBloPoMo and Nanowrimo.
