Default Silly season stories

I ama sure we used to see loads more crazy stories of people being foolishly duped in the local press, but 7 days has this today.


Three held for sorcery con

A GANG who allegedly claimed they could bring $18 million down from the sky using magic have been arrested by Dubai Police.

The two African men and an Asian man have been held on charges of fraud and sorcery.

Head of CID, Brigadier Khalil Ibraheem Al Mansouri, said the force received a tip off about the gang's activities.

The source said the men were asking people to pay $10,000 to perform the stunt.

Police sent an undercover policeman to the gang's home in the Muraqabbat area of Dubai.

Al Mansouri said: "We raided the place and found strange stuff like a three chicken feathers, scissors, stones, a small bottle containing a yellow substance and paper with writing on it in blood."

The case had been referred to Dubai Public Prosecution to finish the investigation.

Is it just me or is none of the stuff that they found (with the exception of the note written in blood) very strange? I hope the police never raid my apartment or the may find strange stuff like salt, forks, buttons and a jar containing a yellow substance (mustard)

I was woken at 5.30am this morning by a Cockerel - He was in my Garden giving it some. We shared some Granolia for breakfast.

Then the neighbours said they had found a Chicken in their garden so the pair were rounded up and taken to (I hope) a rescue centre in Sharjah.

True story for silly season.

Not anymore there isn't. My Chinese neighbours dealt with it all. I'm sure the feet soup was delicious.

Why why why would you be asking for a paltry 10,000 if you can make it rain 18 million?

If you need the ten thousand, just make it rain, pick up ten thousand off the floor, and leave the rest for whoever comes along.

"There is no law that criminalises homosexuality in Lebanon. But people can be charged under Article 534 of the Lebanese Penal Code, which penalises "sexual intercourse contrary to nature" - specifically sexual intercourse that includes anal penetration - with a maximum of one year in prison."

Only weirdos are obsessed by what consenting adults get up to in private. All the problems in the world and far too many people only focus on other people's sex lives.
