A CHINESE man has made a stunning Guinness world record of driving across two rows of bottled beers for over 60m in Wenzhou.
Li Guiwen, an army driver from Beijing, steered along 1 798 bottles for 60,19m in a time of eight minutes and 28 seconds in eastern China’s Zhejiang province.
He had previously attempted the same record in 2009, but due to rain, the right tyre of his vehicle slipped off the bottle track.
Li, who thought of creating this record after a drinking bet with friends, added: “Since the failure last year, I have been training constantly.” — Reuters.
A FLORIDA man is accused of having sex with Christie Brinkley… not the 80s supermodel and former wife of Billy Joel, but a Great Dane with the same name.
Police say Armand Pacher, 64, told his vet’s office that he was sleeping with Christie Brinkley, and not just to keep warm on a cold night.
“She doesn’t seem to enjoy it as much when we have sex,” he allegedly said, according to an arrest warrant quoted by the Miami Herald. “Maybe it’s because I haven’t been as energetic lately and that’s why she’s not enjoying it.’’
The vet didn’t think it was so funny — and says when he found signs of forced sexual activity on Christie Brinkley, he called the cops. The vet told police that the evidence on the spayed dog couldn’t have been from a another dog.
Pacher’s alleged sex attack on Christie Brinkley has earned him a spot in the bestiality wing of the Weird Crime Mug Shot Hall of Shame. — Reuters
A DUTCH priest has been suspended for dedicating a Mass to the Dutch national soccer team while wearing an orange cloak ahead of the World Cup final against Spain.
Priest Paul Vlaar from the town of Obdam prayed for team spirit for the national team, while worshippers, also dressed in orange clothes, were singing soccer songs in the church. It was decorated with orange flags.
The Haarlem-Amsterdam diocese said in a statement last Friday that Vlaar “failed to do justice to the holiness of the celebration of the Eucharist”.
Bishop Jozef Marianus Punt has imposed a period of reflection on the priest with immediate effect.
Vlaar’s prayers appear to have fallen on deaf ears, however, as the Dutch lost the match 1-0. — Reuters.
‘DEAD’ CUSTOMER APPEARS
AN AUSTRIAN woman has had to convince her electricity supplier that she is alive after the company wrote to her asking for information about her contract following her “death”.
In a personally addressed letter, the Linz-based company said it had heard of her death through her bank, daily Oesterreich reported on Thursday. “I am not the dead one,” 58-year-old Christine wrote back in a fax and email to the company, explaining that it was her neighbour who had died and she was the custodian. “It was an unfortunate mistake,” a spokeswoman for the company said. “There was a muddle in the paperwork and the letters we automatically sent out. It has been resolved now.” — Reuters.
