Indonesian drops cash from plane

An Indonesian businessman has scattered 100 million rupiah ($10,700) in banknotes from a plane to promote his new motivational book. Tung Desem Waringin said he would rather share money for a promotional campaign with people who needed it. My goodness ! that book must be bad !

Toilet trouble for space station
International Space Station astronauts are eagerly awaiting the arrival of shuttle Discovery - it is bringing a new pump to mend their broken toilet. The station's urine collection unit, as opposed to its solid waste unit, has been malfunctioning for several days. I am really worried, but now I understand why the rain has this slightly yellow color and I find brown spots in my garden ! Don't worry if you have the same it will be repaired !

Wild side makes parrot speachless
A parrot who never stopped chattering lost his voice after four days' freedom in the wilds of Cambridgeshire. Harley, an African Grey, used to call his owners "Mum" and "Dad", could recite his telephone number and was never lost for words.But after four days in the wild he appears to have lost his tongue and has returned traumatised, skinny and mute. Apparently freedom is not always good. We should send some politicians "in the wilds of Cambridgeshire" !

Coronation farewell to QE2 liner

The Queen launched the QE2 in 1967 and last visited the ship in 1990
The Queen has marked 55 years since her coronation by waving off the luxury cruise ship that shares her name. She launched the QE2 in 1967 and the Queen was in Southampton on Monday to pay the ship a final visit. The QE2 will be retired in November to be converted into a hotel in Dubai after more than 40 years in service. Please note : It has nothing to do with the QI of the Queen !

Prince Charles has op on face growth

PRINCE Charles has had an operation to remove a growth from his face, it emerged yesterday.
The 59-year-old royal was treated late on Thursday after meeting the Dalai Lama at Clarence House. Last night an insider played down the seriousness of Charles’s condition. Don't you see the difference ? He became a very handsome guy now ! A competitor to George Clooney.

Pinhead has a point to make
Pinhead Wei Shengchu poses with 2008 needles stuck in his head, face, hands and chest in Nanning, China, on May 31. Wei decided to use the needles to commemorate the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, with the sharp objects matching the five colours of the Olympic Rings. Crazy !!
Please count I don't believe it !

How do they know the skinny silent bird is the SAME bird who was released??? If he doesn't LOOK the same and he doesn't ACT the same - maybe he is NOT the same! (I'm just sayin'...)

Hootin' Anni said...

Oh my....that 'pin head' is gross. Ewwwwwwwwww.

I was thinking the exact same thing Melli was too.

Maribeth said...

Can you just imagine all those pins?
Love the royals news. I always find it fascinating!

Liz Hinds said...

You do find fascinating news! And your comments always make it even better.

Pamela said...

I was wondering the same thing as Melli. Maybe it is a different bird? Unless of course it was banded.

Do birds exchange friendship bracelets? ha ha
