          CLASSIC BIZARRE NEWS - Friday, October 6, 2006           
"A wild journey into the history of the most bizarre stories EVER."
          GopherCentral's Question of the Week
Colin Powell recently revealed that he was fired by 
President Bush. Do you agree that this was a good decision?

Question of the Week

Greetings fellow Bizarros:

The last few days have been very big for news. 

In a follow up to last week's issue - Robert Blake has pleaded 
'not guilty' to murdering his wife, despite a mountain of 
evidence accumulated by police over the last year including: 
the murder weapon itself, a bloody glove, a stained blue dress 
and the Zapruder film. In a statement that makes Johnnie 
Cochran sound like Daniel Webster, Blake's attorney said, 
"His defense is simple, he didn't do it." In California this 
makes as much sense as the "he needed killing" defense does 
in Texas. 

The entertainment world is saddened by the loss of Linda 
Boreman, who died yesterday at the age of 53 due to injuries 
she suffered in a car crash. Millions of 45 to 50-year-old 
men remember her fondly as Linda Lovelace in the 1972 
pornographic film "Deep Throat." Ironically enough, despite 
being a porn icon, Boreman was a strong anti-porn advocate 
later in her life, claiming she was forced into doing "Deep 
Throat" by her husband at the time. 

Plus, pollution may be killing off your sperm! A recent study 
at the University of Southern California's School of Medicine 
indicates that high ozone levels produced by pollutants in 
the lower atmosphere may be linked to lower sperm counts in 
otherwise healthy men. We're talking inhalants, men. So every 
time you run that gas-powered lawn mower you could be dooming 
your future son or daughter. 

In international news, France is in political turmoil as 
extremist party leader Jean-Marie Le Pen wins the French 
presidential primary. An advocate of the Far Right, Le Pen 
has promised to halt immigration into France and guide 
France out of the EU if he is elected president. Thousands 
of embarrassed Frenchmen and women immediately began 
rioting in Paris and other cities, carrying signs reading, 
"We didn't really think he would win" and "We were drunk." 
Police responded by enthusiastically firing tear gas into 
the crowds and molesting small farm animals. 

I'll keep an eye on developments and let you know if they 
find anyone to surrender to. And now, on to the more bizarre 
side of the news...

+--------- Political Witticisms from Will Rogers ----------+

"Alexander Hamilton started the U.S. Treasury with nothing - 
and that was the closest our country has ever been to being 

"I belong to no organized party. I am a Democrat."

"The man with the best job in the country is the Vice-
President. All he has to do is get up every morning and say 
'How is the president?'"

"Diplomacy is the art of saying 'Nice doggie' until you can 
find a rock."

"Liberty don't work as good in practice as it does in speeches."

"If you make any money, the government shoves you in the creek 
once a year with it in your pockets. All that don't get wet 
you can keep."

[Will Rogers was a popular American humorist of stage and 
films in the early 1900s. His homespun philosophy appealed 
to a very wide audience, so much so that he was even offered 
nomination for Governor of Oklahoma. He declined the same.]


-- U.S. Computer Embarrassed by Japanese Genius Computer ---

A new Japanese supercomputer has taken the title of world's 
fastest computer away from the United States. The Japanese 
NEC Earth Simulator processes data five times faster than 
its closest competitor. It works at a speed of 35,600 giga-
flops compared to its closest rival, IBM's ASCI White, 
which runs at a speed of 7,226 gigaflops. A gigaflop equals 
a billion mathematical operations per second. The NEC Earth 
Simulator is as large as four tennis courts and creates a 
"virtual planet Earth" to predict climate patterns.

---- Disgruntled Ex-worker Flings Fish at Strip Club ----- 

OTTAWA, Canada - There's something fishy about this story, 
eh. A woman in Ottawa flung baggies filled with tuna around 
Fanny's Cabaret after she was fired from the strip club the
day before. According to Det. Dan Brown, the 34-year-old 
stripper returned to the club at about 12:30 p.m, intent 
on resuming her duties. She was again told she did not work 
there, and that's when the tuna hit the fan. This episode 
saw baggies filled with tuna dumped around the strip club's 
coat check and champagne rooms, covering tables, chairs and 
walls. After her "fish fit," the woman emptied two canisters 
of pepper spray near the bar of the club. The pepper spray 
and stench of tuna overcame seven employees and six patrons 
in the club, who began pouring out the front door. The woman 
was charged with assault, theft, administering a noxious 
substance and possession of a prohibited weapon. 

-------- "Dead" Man Attends His Own Memorial Service -------

INDIA - It's another case of a family cremating the wrong
body. It all started when police recently found a mutilated,
unidentified body on railroad tracks near Vadodara. A man 
saw pictures of the unfortunate death in a local paper and
immediately thought it was his nephew. He and the rest of
the family mistakenly identified the body at the morgue and
chose to cremate the body. After the cremation, the family
met to mourn the loss of their loved one. Just as they
gathered, the supposedly deceased family member, Khodidas
Rajput, entered the room. The family was stunned and in-
stantly realized the error. They were reportedly "surprised
when he walked into the meeting." To say the least. Police 
still don't know the true identity of the deceased. 

I'm Walking Here....

Here's an item (the Telescopic Walking Stick) that I never 
really thought I would use. But I decided to try it out
when we went for a walk along a trail a few weeks ago. 

It was fun to use.... yes I said fun. When we would come up
to a stream, I would poke at things in it. I also used it
when I wanted to venture off the beaten path, just to make
sure that there were no snakes in front of me. Believe it or 
not, it made the walk more enjoyable. Check it out and the 
unbelievable low price. 

Normal Price: $19.99

Whether you're an avid hiker or just looking for a little
extra help walking around, the Telescopic Walking Stick is
just what you need. It's fully adjustable to fit your height
and the spring loaded shaft helps reduce strain on your wrists, 
back, knees, legs and feet. With a built in compass it will get 
you through hard rocky terrain or just across the street.

---------- Say Goodbye: It's the End of the World ----------

CANADA - Drama teachers prefaced their lesson for the day
with the usual disclaimer that everything within their skit
would be fictitious. Unfortunately, some drama students at 
Bushfield Community College in Peterborough were unable to 
separate fact from fiction on this fateful day. In that 
day's drama lesson, teachers pretended to cry as they 
informed students that Osama bin Laden had escaped from 
Afghanistan and detonated a nuclear bomb in Britain. 
Furthermore, the teachers told the students to call their 
parents and say goodbye because the end of the world would 
be in minutes. Some students left the room in tears, worry-
ing about their loved ones. The teachers claim the students 
"took it out of context", but education chiefs have 
officially apologized on behalf of the school for any 
alarm they caused for the 15 and 16-year-old students. 

------ The Wild World of Ironing Heats Ups in Munich -------

MUNICH, Germany - This is what you've all been waiting for:
the Extreme Ironing World Championships. The two-day Munich
event will be held in September to coincide with Oktoberfest.
Events include ironing while standing on a mountainside, 
in water, and in the woods. Ironing can also be combined 
with other sports like hiking, climbing, and diving. Organ-
izer Kai Zosseder explained that "A jury will grade them
according to their creativity, style, time, and the result."
Over 60 people have already signed up to participate. The
"sport" was invented by reigning world champion Phil Shaw.

Lewis, The ban on Anal Sex in the UK was repealed about three 
years ago.  Something Tony Blair doesn't mention much in his 
foreign addresses, but I think he should.  "Come to Britain-
We have bad teeth, fish & chips, and legal Butt Love!" -Roger
[At least now the Royal Navy won't have to feel so embarras-

Maxim did that for all 13 of the cities in that magazine. It 
was an April Fools joke.  Detroit also made the list... but 
afterwards it listed 12 other cities which were the worst 
in the world (all of which were claimed to be the best city 
in the world by the magazine in their respective areas).  
The editors of Maxim were on the radio here in Detroit and 
explained the joke.

Lewis - I was wondering...what's the best way to ruin another 
person's life? -Amanda, MI
[Try marrying him.]

Bizarre News is funnier than "Psycho," and more chilling than 
"Jeeves Takes Charge." It gives a whole new meaning to the 
word "snoik."  --Chris

Hey Lewis -- A girl's always looking for a man with a sense 
of humor... you married by any chance?
[Yes I am. But my wife will be glad to know I'm still in 
demand. Thank you.] 

Too funny Lewis! Can I come to work for you so I can admire 
your staff too? -Katha
[It's not that kind of work, Katha.]

36DD? HA! that's nothing... what do you think of a 38F? --sky
[I think you're going to need a chiropractor.]

Lewis, I have Brittany Spears bound, gagged, and locked in 
a closet. If my demands are NOT met, I WILL TURN HER LOOSE! 
First, you will print all comments I send you... -David Rasey
[You have just described the fantasy of about 12 million 13 
year-old boys.]

Lewis, The worst thing concerning this matter is that every 
reporter and column writer I have read or heard, not one has 
voiced or written that a man is innocent until proven guilty 
in this country. Maybe you need to rewrite some of your re-
[Who do YOU think did it, Fred the parrot?]
