In The News

Call Hillary and see if she's missing a broomstick:

A UFO had a mid-air collision with a fighter jet over central Europe, a leaked report has revealed.

Defence chiefs are investigating claims that the Romanian MIG 21 fighter plane was struck by 'strange objects'.

The official report says the cockpit of the jet was shattered.

The impact on a training flight above Transylvania took only 67 milliseconds and was recorded on an in-flight video camera.

Pilot Marin Mitrica was slightly injured but managed to land the plane safely after the incident last year.

Maybe They Were Wearing Tights:

A SYDNEY teacher who filmed up the skirts of two teenage girls was not acting indecently even though the act was "offensive", his lawyer has argued in court.

Teacher Robert Ian Drummond, 41, allegedly used a camera hidden in a plastic bag to film up a 14-year-old's uniform at Warringah Mall on May 1 last year.

He is also charged with filming another teenage girl, believed to be 16 at the time, after a police search of Drummond's home after his arrest turned up another video.

Drummond has been charged with an act of indecency, an aggravated act of indecency, and with making and possessing child pornography. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

His lawyer Peter Gow told the court said the act of capturing the images was not indecent, and his client had never intended the girls to know what he had done.

All For About A Buck-Fifty, They Should Burn In Hell:

FOR a wad of worthless Zimbabwean banknotes, President Robert Mugabe's militias burnt six-year-old Nyasha Mashoko to death.

The target of the ZANU-PF thugs had been the boy's father, Brian Mamhova. They came for him on Friday night - three truckloads of them, plus a Mercedes-Benz from which alighted three armed men in suits, Mr Mamhova said. The militiamen had been promised $Z25 trillion to kill him, which seems a high price on the head of a district councillor but is no problem for a government that sees printing money as the best way out of a crisis."

[...]They locked the door where my wife was. They smashed the windows and threw petrol inside. Then they lit it," he said.

"Inside the house, my young brother broke the door. I thank God, otherwise they would be burnt, all of them. He took my nephew out of the room. Then he went back into the room and he took my wife, but it was late. She got 80per cent burnt. My son was burnt to pieces.

Good Luck With That:

Three islanders from Lesbos told a court Tuesday that gay women insult their home's identity by calling themselves lesbians.

The plaintiffs _ two women and a man _ are seeking to ban a Greek gay rights group from using the word "lesbian" in its name.

Also known as Mytilini, Lesbos was the home of the ancient poet Sappho, who praised love among women. It is a major travel destination for gay women.

The Homosexual and Lesbian Community of Greece "causes confusion by using a geographic term in connection with (the group's) special character and social action," said Dimitris Papadelis, a lawyer representing the plaintiffs.
