Oddball of a World vol.10 – On Sex Dolls, Fruit Helmets, Geek Flirts, Videogames & Rubber

Breaking a bit from the tragic news on TV, let’s check out some of the odd things that have been happening around the world! Titles are links.

The Sex Doll Incident

It is exactly like it sounds like. This poor sexually frustrated chap has been breaking into sex toy stores, stealing blow up sex dolls, inflating them in the alley, doing his business and leaving them there. That must be one hot and expensive doll.

Using the Whole Fruit

This reminded me of my university, (and sometimes my office) when they enforce a rule and do everything in their power for you to NOT follow it. It’s a nice way to make quick money. So in Nigeria is a new rule that dictates people to wear helmets when cycling, biking etc. The catch is that they’re too expensive for the population. So the people sported novelty helmets made out of fruit shells and pots. And they get fined for wearing such helmets.

Gleirt 101

I coined this term. Brilliant isn’t it? Geeks can now attend flirting courses where they are taught how to approach the elusive gender and woo them. You’d think that these geeks would have already found pick up lines websites by now.

Videogames to Recruit

Now this is just insulting to us gamers! Desperate for manpower, the US military (talk about such a publicity stunt) is now seducing the average plumber to join the army by having them play war-based videogames and simulated assaults. Such a shame, really. If you ever mention that Hamas is doing this for training the whole world would be up in flames denouncing such an atrocity.

Grandma Not Rubbery Enough

Not everyone likes everyone else in the family, but to decide to steal your grandmother’s money is something else. I mean, it’s a grandma. Granpas I understand :P but grandmas are a big no-no. This dope had his girlfriend disguise herself in latex and attempt to withdraw from the bank a huge amount of money (that’s one rich grandma). Too bad the bank worker was intelligent and called up the actual grandma to learn she was visiting someone else.

Oddball of a World vol.9 – On Tuna, Staples, PC, Lottery, Jail Food and Workaholics

STRESS FREE TUNA

Psychology is critical, but have you ever thought of how Tuna feels when it gets caught by fishermen? Well, some researchers are, and they will be coming up with fishing mechanisms to reduce the stress levels in Tuna… so that they taste better.

MISSING STAPLES

So you’re in court, about to receive a life sentence (or death sentence) for your homicide atrocities, when you notice that the staple on your court documents is missing. Since all documents are required to be stapled – by law – you have the chance to appeal because, well, you might have been “framed”. Talk about luck, OJ Simpson!

BYE BYE, STUPID PC!

Have you ever been sooooooooooo upset from your PC you felt like throwing it out the window? Well this man did, and the neighbors called the cops on him. Throw out the neighbors I say!

GOING ONCE… GOING TWICE!!

If those staple murderers are lucky, these two are even luckier. They not only won the lottery ONCE, but they won the SAME LOTTERY TWICE, thanks to two tickets!

BUT JAIL FOOD IS FREE!!

I actually considered doing this on multiple occasions. This guy here, binges in fancy restaurants then pulls off a great escape scene and doesn’t pay for the food. He has been caught and jailed, went on probation – and now he is back for the same crime! I hope jail food is good!

YOU MIGHT WANT TO HAVE SEX BY NOW…

Do you have a workaholic in the office? One who works day and night, 297118763/7? Researchers found out that a good percentage of said workaholics are using their jobs as a diversion from their unfulfilled sex life! Now which country has the highest number of workaholics…

Oddball of a World vol.8 – On Shocks, Fish, Snail Mail, Belgium, Autopsies and Baby Names

Remember that the titles are links! (so is everything orange).

Also please vote on the poll on the right which duration I have extended for another week!

SHOCKED THIEF

With the rise of copper on the rise, it is only natural to invest your spare time in stealing some copper, right? Try not to steal copper from live 11,000 V cables.

FISH ARE TIME CAPSULES

Remember that satellite released with a time capsule containing Earth’s inhabitant’s letters for the 50,000-years-in-the-future inhabitants of our planet? You don’t need no expensive satellites as a 15 year old letter from a Japanese girl was finally returned to her…. by a fish.

SPEAKING OF WHICH…

A fish may take 15 years to return your letter, but to have it delivered it looks like Snail Mail is literally SLOWER than snails themselves. Read this experiment to find out how.

KINGDOM FOR SALE

If you can spare 10 million Euros, you can buy Belgium off eBay.

WAIT! I AM STILL ALIVE!!!

From what I’ve heard (don’t ask how), dying is a terrible experience. More terrible is waking up while you’re being autopsied on.

THE BATTLE FOR BABY NAMES CONTINUE…

So yeah, the battle didn’t end… after another couple got rejected for their baby’s name “4Real” (because the system doesn’t accept numbers, not because it is ridiculous), the couple are appealing to court threatning that it is either “4Real” or “Superman”.

Oddball of a World vol.7 – On Your Boss, Squirrels, Cell Phones, Clean Thieves, Lipstick and Godzilla

BAD BOSSES GET PROMOTED

According to studies, it appears that the only reason your boss gets promoted is because he/she/it makes your life miserable. No wonder behind every desk is either an asshole or a potential suicidal.

SQUIRRELS LOVE CHOCOLATE TOO

It seems a bit far fethced, but it looks like humans are not the only ones who would kill for a chocolate. Although this squirrel hasn’t killed anyone – yet – it gained notorious publicity for stealing Kinder from grocery shops at LEAST twice a day. Talk about a sweet tooth!

PLEASE TURN ON YOUR CELL PHONES

From now on ignore “turn off mobile” warning signs everywhere, as they have proved to be handy yet again in a hospital in Argentina, where doctors were able to carry out an operation during a blackout thanks to cellphone lights.

THE CLEAN THIEF

And you though I was a clean addict. This thief broke into a house, went straight to the toilet where he had sexual intercourse with cleaning detergents and the vacuum cleaner.

LOVING IN THE WRONG WAY

You love art, right? Try not to kiss a $2 million painting to show your affection – while wearing red lipstick.

MUST DESTROY GODZILLA

Since Japanese politicians have perfected everything in their beloved country, it is now time to tackle the real issues. Flying saucers and how they fly and the imminent Godzilla rampage.


Oddball of a World vol.6 – On Pedophiles, Gas, Prison, Go-Karts & Teachers

PEDOPHILE WORKS IN KINDERGARTEN

Alright, you captured, finally, the pedophile, and you sentenced him for community services. You look at his profile and think, Hmmm, now where is the best place to put this person so he can have a comfortable working environment?! Gee! Let’s put him as a janitor in a kindergarten!

MAN FORGETS CAR IN GAS STATION

How many times, when you fill in the gas, you go to the mini mart and buy yourself a nice soda or some chips? Perhaps some prepaid? Or a magazine? When you go out you surely return to your car, right? Not this man… he walked right out and all the way home.

SERIAL JAIL-BREAKER ON THE LOOSE

Prisonbreak at its best, this guy has escaped prison four times already. You’d think they’d learn by now how to confine him properly.

GO-KART ALL THE WAY

Speaking of escapes, here is an innovative way to escape the cops: A go-kart. Huh? You may ask… but it is logical. They’re small, agile, and can turn sharp corners. You’d outrun any police vehicle without much effort. Just make sure you know where to park it next time if you’re not planning to get caught….

SUPER TEACHERS!! RUN AWAY!

You may need a go-kart for this one. Super teachers, a new breed of teachers who defy all the rules set by schools. No more naughty corners, no more letting people write “I am sorry” a 100 times and submit it. No no… I am talking about super violent teachers here. Ones that throw desks and chairs at their students. WHAT you may say? It is actually proven that they form better-disciplined students. Hmm!
