German Postal Workers Startled By Vibrations
BERLIN - Workers in a German post office in the eastern city of Chemnitz were startled on Wednesday when a package awaiting shipment began to vibrate and make a strange noise. The postal workers were worried that the package might contain a bomb and notified police.
Police brought the sender of the package to the post office. Further investigation found the package contained a life-size female sex doll with an electrical vibrating device deep inside an undisclosed location. The man told police he was returning the doll because it kept turning itself on at the wrong moment. You see it's not always a bomb !

69-Year-Old-Man Has Toothbrush Lodged in Rectum
A toothbrush was used to relieve a different "cavity" when a pensioner decided to use the dental instrument to scratch his hemorrhoids. The 69-year-old man ordered into the hospital after the toothbrush became lodged in his rectum. An X-ray revealed it was deep inside near his pelvis. Although this was first recorded case of a toothbrush having to be removed from the rectum, the British Dental Journal reports doctors have recovered toothbrush holders, toothbrush packages and toothpicks in the past. I have heard of heroin bags in this place but a toothbrush ?? Surprising objects in surprising places !
What is obscene these days?
It's 2008 and sex seems to be everywhere. So who holds the line between permissiveness and obscenity? What is obscene these days? And how do those people entrusted to make these calls cope with the harrowing work? "People think 'what a great job - you sit and watch porn all day'," says Inspector Andy Shortland, who heads the Metropolitan Police's Obscene Publications Squad. I would rather work on an assembly line for car motors the whole day !
When John McCain was my captive'
Tran Trong Duyet claims no torture was carried out at Hoa Lo
Tran Trong Duyet - a sprightly retiree and amateur ballroom dancer - must rank as one of John McCain's more unlikely supporters. Mr Duyet was in charge of the notorious Hoa Lo prison - the place where Mr McCain says he was brutally beaten and tortured. McCain is my friend," said 75-year-old Mr Duyet. I can confirm to you that we never tortured him. We never tortured any prisoners. He did not tell the truth," he says. But I can somehow sympathise with him. He lies to American voters in order to get their support for his presidential election. McCain is a politician after all, they all lie or tell a slightly modified truth. And during a war everybody has been an angel afterwards !
Beatrice and Eugenie triumph in the style stakes at Royal Ascot
The Queen's granddaughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie were firmly in the spotlight on the first day of Royal Ascot as they joined fellow royals in donning hats to watch one of the country's premier racing events. I am quite sure that they make fun of this Ascott show !
Belgian royals gather grandkids
It's no wonder proud grandparents Queen Paola and King Albert of Belgium looked happy at a recent family get-together. Every one of their 12 grandchildren – from the eldest, Amedeo, 22, to tiny nine-week-old Eleonore - was present for a photo session at Laeken Castle. And the former king, his brother, was childless ! Albert at least increased the Belgian population !
