WARNING: Whilst I endeavour to keep Media Monday family friendly I feel it only right to point out that some of the newspapers featured do have links to articles of a more adult nature. TT

Most bizarre headline of the week?

Mystery of Taj Mahal sculpture made entirely out of toast spotted on London street corner.

Or how about this one?

Addicted to underpants: Man's compulsion to wear new boxers every day left him facing bankruptcy.

Or how about this one from the animal kingdom?

Dog causes traffic chaos after it takes control of a tractor.

And as for the most unlucky woman of the week?

Agoraphobic granny finally steps outside ... and falls down manhole

And finally, after last week's Pastafarian, today in the news from across the pond I give you ...

Claiming to have over 4,000 members with names such as 'Funkmaster General', 'Institutionalized Thought Leader' and Bacon Prophet' a statement on the United Church of Bacon's website is offering legal weddings for those who don't want God in their ceremony.

Tracy, I am not sure how you find these stories, or headlines, but they are "good"! Your special headlines were a great way to begin my Monday. Thank you for presenting these absurd stories.

I like to read the fascinating clips .
Surprising to see the person who got addicted to underpants with his collection

These are funny (even when they shouldn't be, like the poor woman and the manhole).

I'm surprised that birds didn't discover and dismantle that bread Taj Mahal right off the bat.

ROFL! I would totally be the one with agoraphobia and fall down the manhole.

Hi Tracy,

I missed all of your stories this week and I generally know at least a couple of them ... I must be slipping! LOL

I love toast, so making my breakfast into a model of the Taj Mahal, seems like sacrilege, although I do like my toast a little more browned, so this would be bit too pale for me!

I am also intigued as to why the United Church of Bacon only has 9 commandments. Are they bucking the trend by not having the traditional 10 commandments, or can they simply not think of another bacon influenced commandment to make up the full rasher!

Thanks for sharing your usual Monday cheer and enjoy the rest of your week :)

Another great collection of stories! Wonder why someone would go to the trouble of sculpting the Taj Majal out of toast, only to abandon it on the street? Very odd! And that poor woman who fell down the manhole! Yikes!

Brandi Kosiner said...

Oh gosh, leading him to bankruptcy... whats wrong with a washer?

Brian Joseph said...

I have to wonder about folks who are accomplished at things like ice sculpting, sand sculpting, and not toast sculpting. All that work and creativity on something so ephemeral!

Karen said...

I had sent he story about the agoraphobic granny.

That dog story is so funny!

Ha , ha !
I ve been trying to pick from your snippets and could not choose one for the other.

But perhaps, the agoraphobic granny is the winner.
