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!

Oddball of a World vol.5 – On Odd Men

Alright, since the previous Oddball hit a cord with the ladies, it is not time for REVENGE.

Yes you got that right, now is time for the Odd Men version… so ladies DON’T HOLD BACK!!! Make mincemeat out of us… this is your LEGITIMATE chance!

Click on the titles (they’re links if you are color blind so you may not see a diff in color)

MAN BLOWS UP HIS DINNER GUESTS

You don’t like your family members and friends, so you devise a once-and-for-all solution. Invite them all to dinner, tricking them that you want to apologize, then blow them all up. Sweet.

IT’S THE WRONG KIND OF AFFAIR

Are you an uptight and conservative father? Is your daughter causing you trouble? Hire a private detective to check out her sexual endeavours… but beware, the results may not always please you…

IS THAT A DILDO IN MY MEAT?

Meat lovers beware: Men from abroad are now shipping sausages stuffed with various questionable objects. If your veal feels rubbery, maybe you should send it to the nearest lab.

I WANT MY LICENSE

Finally, after all your hard work, the police finally issue you your driving license. You are so excited to go pick it up that you steal a bus to drive there and get it.

SMELLY MEN

A lot of men smell. We love our stench… we think it is manly and all this horrible peach and rose shower gels are for you women. But this man has taken pride in his natural smell a bit too far… so far in fact that the neighbors thought there is a corpse in the house and the police raided the fellow’s place, only to find out it is just his feet.

MEN DO IT TOO

Remember the ladies in the previous oddball who preserved their dead family members in the house? Men do it too, it seems. This guy didn’t want to “disturb” his mama so he kept her in her armchair for a couple of years. Talk about mamma’s boy.

Oddball of a World vol.1

Humans are sadistic creatures. Face it, you can’t help yourself not laugh when someone else trips over, falls to the ground and dives face first into a pile of pies. We love stupidity, even if we hate stupid people. Without stupidity, we won’t feel smart.

I will bring you every now and then some really odd, if stupid, things that happen around the world.

And of course I will add my own comments :P

Let’s roll!!

Panda Dies of Heart Attack
I understand that this is not funny at all, but the funny fact is that a panda makes world news. True, they are endangered species (gee I wonder why!) and granted they are all fluffy and stuff, but it is just amusing that a panda is able to sway people’s hearts when everything else in the world fails.

Thief Raids Homes to Sleep in Them
Now why would you do that? I mean, you carefully plan for days to break into a house… so you can SLEEP in it? Might as well steal some items, sell them, and then accumulate enough to buy your own house!

Teacher Throws Crap at Student
Now wouldn’t you love this. You’re a teacher, and a student pisses you off. What do you do? Bring in some dung and throw it at them! Next to-be-crapped-upon: Boss

Groom’s Brother Marries Bride
You go to your own wedding only to find that your brother is marrying your bride. AND everyone is ok with it!

Worker Beheaded for not Milking
You work in a farm. One of your employees forgot to milk the cow. What do you do? Off with this head!

Your thought?!
