Just about every newspaper has a section devoted to the weird and wonderful goings on in the World. Quite often they're referred to as "Odd Spots". Of course there's more to the story waiting to be told. It justs needs a little irrational thought to read between the lines and see THE REAL STORY...
Sunday, November 10, 2002 WHISTLE WHILE YOU JERK
The Age. 8th November, 2002
The Governor of the Australian state of Victoria, John Landy faces unfair dismissal action after sacking a steward for alleged misconduct including whistling, singing in the pantry, and providing his wife, Mrs Landy, with her runners when she had requested walking shoes.
Jonathon Prince had his employment terminated by Government House's official secretary because of a list of concerns held by Government House staff about Mr Prince's performance.
They include that he allowed fires "to go almost out", and, on August 23, forgot to give Mrs Landy and her tennis guest their tea, coffee, and the "usual fruit platter".
Since late July, "Jonathon has been whistling and singing and humming to himself in a low tone which has irritated others and is not appropriate behaviour for a member of the pantry".
On October 5, Mr Prince left work early, and walked "by two urns of dead flowers". On a country tour, Mrs Landy "made a specific request for her walking shoes". "Jonathon assumed these were runners rather than the shoes Mrs Landy required, which were not obviously walking shoes," his performance review said.
It's about time they cracked down on these slackers who are so blissfully unaware of their own incompetence that they perpetually whistle and even sing, in the pantry none-the-less. What is this world coming to?

Saturday, November 02, 2002 GREATEST TOWN NAME IN THE WORLD
Did you know that there's a town in Austria called Fucking?
Well I'll tell you what, it was fucking news to me. But it's made me as fucking happy as a fucking pig in fucking muck because now I can use the fucking word "fucking" as much as I fucking well like, because it's not actually fucking swearing, it's a fucking town in fucking Austria. Which is just fucking brilliant!
Here's the fucking photographic proof:
And if you still don't fucking believe me, here's a fucking web site to fucking prove it. Click fucking here. Fucking fuck fuckers.
A fucking note to all the fucking Geographically Challenged fucking idiots out there:
Fucking Austria has nothing to do with fucking Australia. Fucking kangaroos are fucking native to fucking Australia not fucking Austria (there might be some kanga-fucking-roos in fucking zoos in fucking Austria though). Fucking Austria is in fucking Europe and fucking Australia is a fucking big island with the Indian fucking Ocean on it's west fucking coast and the Pacific fucking Ocean on it's east fucking coast. There are no fucking oceans near Austria, it's completely fucking land-locked. I hope we've fucking cleared that up.
Well that's fucking it. It's fucking late so I'm going to fucking bed... maybe I'll get some fucking fucking.
OK. I think I might have over-fucking-done it with the fucking thing. What do you fucking think?
