Odd/Strange/Bizarre Story’s 

What a Croc


PERTH, Australia – A man thrown out of a pub in Australia
broke into a zoo and climbed onto the back of a crocodile
named Fatso, which bit him on the leg but then let him go.
Police said they’re surprised the croc didn’t inflict worse
damage. The 36-year-old man, who police said had just been
thrown out of a pub for being drunk, told officials he
scaled the barbed wire fence surrounding the Broome
Crocodile Park in remote northwest Australia on Monday night
because he wanted to give the 16-foot Fatso a pat.

‘He has attempted to sit on its back and the croc has taken
offense to that and has spun around and bit him on the right
leg,’ Broome Police Sgt. Roger Haynes said.

The saltwater crocodile then inexplicably let the man go,
and he climbed back over the fence to safety, police said.

The man, who was a tourist from eastern Australia and whose
name was not released, suffered some ‘very nasty
lacerations’ and was taken to a hospital, Haynes said.

‘Saltwater crocodiles … once they get hold of you, are not
renowned for letting you go,’ Haynes said. ‘He’s lucky to
have escaped with his life.’


Man uses petrol as cleaner

A man blew up his house as he washed his kitchen floor with a cleaning fluid mixed with petrol. The fumes were ignited by the boiler in his living room.

The blast blew out the bay window and wrecked ceilings and walls in Ron Cox’s home. He had been using Cillit Bang to get glue off his
kitchen floor tiles, but he found it such hard work he thought petrol would help. As the fumes wafted through the house there was an explosion  as they came into contact with the pilot light on the gas boiler. Newspapers reported that Mr Cox said, ‘I didn’t realise what had happened at first. I couldn’t believe the damage. It was just a cupful. Lucky I was in the kitchen and no one else was in the house.’

He has now moved out of the house in Scunthorpe, Lincs, while it is repaired. His neighbour, Dave, told the reporter, ‘We heard an almighty bang. I rushed round and found Ron shocked but unhurt.’ Dave put out a fire in the lounge and dialled 999.

Humberside fire chief Stuart Spence said: ‘Ron is very lucky. Nobody should ever try to use petrol as a cleaner.’


True Story


Fished Off

BROOKLYN PARK, Minnesota. – Eight-year-old Logan Fisher is fed up
with crime. And he’s making sure the leaders of his
Minnesota city know it.

Logan was ticked because thieves broke into his Brooklyn
Park home last month and stole thousands of dollars worth of
electronics, not to mention his wallet filled with quarters.

So the soon-to-be fourth-grader climbed a stool and took the
podium at this week’s City Council meeting. The Star Tribune
reports he wrote out his speech in pencil, then had his mom
type it up.

He said, ‘We need to get mean and we need to mean it.’

Deputy Police Chief Craig Enevoldsen agreed with Logan on
neighbors watching out for neighbors and stepped up police
patrols. But he said the boy’s idea to put an armored SWAT
vehicle on the streets to scare criminals away wasn’t so




True Story 2




Spare Seat

A guy named Joe receives a free ticket to the SuperBowl from
his company. Unfortunately, when Joe arrives at the stadium,
he realizes the seat is in the last row in the corner of the
stadium, he’s closer to the Goodyear Blimp than the field.
About halfway through the first quarter, Joe sees through
his binoculars an empty seat 10 rows off the field right on
the 50 yardline.

He decides to take a chance and makes his way through the
stadium and around the security guards to the empty seat. As
he sits down, Joe asks the gentleman sitting next to him,
‘Excuse me, is anyone sitting here?’

The man says ‘No.’

Now, very excited to be in such a great seat for the game,
Joe again inquires of the man next to him, ‘This is
incredible! Who in their right mind would have a seat like
this at the SuperBowl and not use it?!’

The man replies, ‘Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I
was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This
is the first SuperBowl we haven’t been together at since we
got married in 1967.’

‘Well, that’s really sad,’ said Joe, ‘but still, you
couldn’t find anyone to take the seat? A friend or close
relative?’ ‘No,’ the man replies, ‘They’re all at the


Little Johnny’s Brother

Little Johnny’s new baby brother was screaming up a storm.
He asked his mom, ‘Where’d we get him?’

His mother replied, ‘He came from heaven, Johnny.’

Johnny says, ‘WOW! I can see why they threw him out!’ 




It was the day of the big sale. Rumors of the sale (and some
advertising in the local paper) were the main reason for the
long line that formed in front of the store by 8:30AM, the
store’s opening time.

A small man pushed his way to the front of the line, only to
be pushed back, amid loud and colorful curses. On the man’s
second attempt, he was punched square in the jaw and knocked
around a bit and then thrown to the end of the line again.

As he got up the second time, he complained to the person at
the end of the line, ‘That does it! If they hit me one more
time, I’m not opening the store!’


The Perfect Husband

A man walked out to the street and caught a taxi just going by. He got into the taxi

and the cabbie said, ‘Perfect timing. You’re just like ‘Brian!

Passenger: ‘Who?’

Cabbie: ‘Brian Sullivan. He’s a guy who did everything right all the time. Like my

coming along when you needed a cab, things happen like that to Brian Sullivan,

every single time.’

Passenger: ‘There are always a few clouds over everybody.’

Cabbie: ‘Not Brian Sullivan. He was a terrific athlete. He could have won the Grand

Slam at tennis. He could golf with the pros. He sang like an opera baritone and

danced like a Broadway star and you should have heard him play the piano. He was

an amazing guy.’

Passenger: ‘Sounds like he was something really special.’

Cabbie: ‘There’s more. He had a memory like a computer. He remembered everybody’s birthday. He knew all about wine, which foods to order and which fork to eat them with.

He could fix anything. Not like me. I change a fuse, and the whole street blacks out. But

Brian Sullivan, he could do everything right.’

Passenger: ‘Wow. Some guy then.’

Cabbie: ‘He always knew the quickest way to go in traffic and avoid traffic jams. Not

like me, I always seem to get stuck in them. But Brian, he never made a mistake, and

he really knew how to treat a woman and make her feel good. He would never answer

her back even if she was in the wrong; and his clothing was always immaculate, shoes

highly polished too. He was the perfect man! He never made a mistake. No one could

ever measure up to Brian Sullivan.’

Passenger: ‘An amazing fellow. How did you meet him?’

Cabbie: ‘Well, I never actually met Brian. He died. I’m married to his ef*in widow’


Inner Peace – this really works!

I am passing this on to you because it definitely worked for me today, and we all could probably use more calm in
our lives.

Some doctor on television this morning said that the way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started.  

So I looked around my house to see things I’d started and hadn’t finished and, before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of Chardonnay, a bodle of Baileys, a butle of wum, a pockage of Prunglies, tha mainder of bot Prozic and Valum scriptins, the res of the Chesescke an a box a choclets.
