    A duck is one of the last animals you would expect to find on an aeroplane flight, not least because they have wings and can fly wherever they like free of charge. However, this bird provides a special service - it is an emotional support duck for a passenger who is worried about flying.
  • Gal With Green Baby Says She Was Raped By A Leprechaun

    Previously posted... Posted on 08/05/2005 1:46:06 PM PDT by Rebelbase DOCTORS in Mallow, Ireland, are puzzled by the birth of a green baby. But single mom Bridget O'Leary, 26, says there's a very simple explanation -- she claims she was raped by a leprechaun. "He had his way with me, he did," says the attractive barmaid. "He got me drunk and slipped me his little green shamrock." By all accounts O'Leary has a sterling reputation as a hardworking, upstanding individual. "Bridget is a fine lass, and no mistake," says Tom Shaughnessey, 44, the owner of the Brick and the Rose...

    Monday on MSNBC, long-time Clinton ally Democratic strategist James Carville said Donald Trump supporters “do not like the Republican party,” pointing to House Speaker John Boehner, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and other establishment Republicans as evidence in a comparison he drew to the dynamic between Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, both candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination.

    An enigma spanning thousands of years, the Green Man is a symbol of mysterious origin and history. Permeating various religious faiths and cultures, the Green Man has survived countless transformations and cultural diversities, enduring in the same relative physical form to this day. Although specifics about his beginnings and his worship are not fully known, due in large part to how far back and to what initial cultures he can be traced to, it is a testament to the widespread reach of his character that he is still remembered and worshipped to this day. The Green Man is most highly...

    34-year-old woman posed as a teenager to enroll as sophomore at a small private high school in East Texas, officials said Wednesday. Longview police said Charity Johnson was arrested early Tuesday morning after telling officers she was "Charite Stevens" and was born in November 1997. Police had been called to an apartment when the person Johnson was staying with said she no longer wanted her living there. Police gave Johnson a trespass warning. Officer Debra Stiles said during the investigation, police determined she had given them a false name and birthdate. Police say Johnson is 34, although jail records list...

    Democrat Sean Eldridge’s campaign raised a little over $520,000 in the first quarter of this year. Nearly half came from the candidate himself. Eldridge, the husband of New Republic editor and Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes, pitched in $250,000, according to a campaign finance report filed with the Federal Election Commission on Tuesday. That contribution, made in one lump payment on March 31, brings Eldridge’s self-financing total to $965,000. Eldridge is running for a competitive House seat in New York’s Hudson Valley, in a district he has called home for less than two years.

    The Obama campaign is very busy sending people odd messages. Yesterday, the President himself described his fear of Mitt Romney. Today, a new mass email shows Mr. Obama touching people and their hands. Under the subject "High five," the message is just several gifs of President Obama trying (and mainly failing) to high five a group of supporters. Honestly, I don't know if the President knows what a high five is. It just looks like he's trying to squeeze children's hands sensually: Or simply missing every hand he's trying to hit: And naturally, the campaign pleads for money. Obviously Mr....

    It was the first time the competition was conducted in San Francisco and there was bone-chilling water temperatures along with the usual Bay area wind. But just as surfer Dusty Payne of Hawaii braved the cold to ride a wave, a SHARK (flash scary shark with loud music or sound effect) appeared in the water and SCARED THE DAYLIGHTS out of Dusy who described the sight as quote, "the biggest fin I've ever seen in my life coming at me. I've seen dolphins and it wasn't a dolphin." unquote. So, not only did Dusty lose it, but he also lost...

    A gigantic python snake in Florida ate a 76-pound adult deer. The 16 foot long Burmese python was one of the largest pythons discovered to date in the sunshine state. According to Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission’s exotic species coordinator Scott Hardin, if these huge snakes aren’t killed, they could migrate northward. A government sanctioned shotgun blast stopped this snake from its potential journey to Atlanta or the Carolinas. And just how any inches around did the beast’s belly have to measure in order to covert a 76 pound Bambi into breakfast? 44 inches. Oh, and what is the average...

    It seems like people want credit for being heroes-- even when they are far from it. Now that Osama bin Laden has met his end at the hands of Navy SEALs, there are many that want to jump on the bandwagon. One case is a pastor from Pennsylvania, Jim Moats, who has been telling his congregation for five years that he was a Navy SEAL in Vietnam: Apparently at least part was based on Steven Seagal's 1992 film Under Seige: Among other things, Moats said he was subjected to waterboarding when he trained at Little Creek Amphibious Base in Virginia...

    Atlanta, Georgia (CNN) -- When Kevin Murphy entered as a freshman at Mount Holyoke, a Massachusetts women's college, in 2003, he was female. By the time he received his diploma, he was male. Phillip Hudson, who attended Morehouse, an all-male historically black college in Georgia, calls himself androgynous, meaning he doesn't identify with masculine or feminine identity norms. The two men represent a debate that is brewing at some of the nation's same-sex colleges. For these colleges, which have historically defied boundaries and challenged the status quo, a new test of tolerance has surfaced: How are they handling gender identity?...

    "Tim was organized and low-key, although given to occasional bursts of profanity and odd fits of giggling." —Ex-car czar Steven Rattner dishes on the Obama administration's views of Detroit during the bailouts in his upcoming book, Overhaul. No one was spared. According to Rattner, Obama asked, "Why can't [GM and Chrysler] make a Corolla?"
