Weird Wacky News (WWN)

Amidst the onslaught of depressing news gracing the front pages over the past few weeks I thought I’d seek out some more lighter quirkier stories. My daily source or media and entertainment Digital Spy has recently started posting odd news and some of them make interesting reading.

A Japanese man has perfected the ability to write calligraphy using water squirted from his own eyes.

Ru Anting, 56 discovered the talent while swimming in a local river as a boy.

He said: “Sometimes I would swallow water while swimming, and once I accidentally discovered the water I swallowed could be shot out through my eyes.”

Mr Antig revealed his amazing gift to China News.

A dare-devil dog who risked his own life to protect four kittens from a house fire in Melbourne, Australia has been hailed as a hero.

The plucky pooch Leo tested the courageous skills of firefighters as they were forced to dodge fallen power line to rescue him and his feline companions.

All the animals had to be resuscitated following the rescue but are no reported to be safe and well.

Watch the video below.

Tragic Fate: The cows laying dead after the storm

A lightning bolt killed 52 cows when it struck the northern Uruguayan state of San Jose.

Meterologist Fernando Torena said he was not surprised a single lightning bolt had killed the black and brown cows (pictured), stating that cows often crowd around fences to seek protection from bad weather. He called it “very bad luck”.

The report was published in Newspaper El Paris. The photograph was released by the San Jose Police.

    Haha Matt, did you randomly entitle that WWN? There is actually a TV company called that. They produce robot wars. I know this because I did work experience there. I was fourteen. My job was to work the autocue. Disastrous results.
    If only we could find this kind of news on our patch! Maybe we’re not looking hard enough at the animal kingdom.

    Any similarities are purely co-incidence. Im surprised you have not heard about the crocodile wrestling ninja warrior though or the stampede down Pitfield Street last night.
