6 Wacky and Weird Stories From This Week

We may have spent this week fixated on Former Tennessee GOP leader Chip Saltsman's Mixed CD scandal, rounding up the very best of 2008 and ringing in the New Year, but all kinds of wacky things were happening around the globe.

  • Women Said No Sex for Men Who Shoot Fireworks — A group of hundreds of women in Naples announced they wouldn't make love if their men shot off dangerous fireworks on New Year's Eve. Apparently local firework displays injure or maim hundreds each year. No word on how the protest went.
  • 2008 Lasted an Extra Second — The world's official timekeepers added what they call a "leap second" to the last day of the year to help sync clocks to the earth's slowing spin on its axis.
  • Alleged Drug Dealer Accepted Gift Cards — Athens, AL police have a 38-year-old man in custody for allegedly accepting gift cards for payment for crack cocaine and prescription drugs.
  • Peruvian Jesus Born to Virgin Mary on Christmas — A 20-year-old Peruvian woman named Virgin Mary gave birth to a baby boy on Christmas day and named him Jesus. The baby's father isn't name Joseph, but he is a carpenter.
  • Woman Gave Intruder "The Squeeze" — An 88-year-old woman in Oregon fended off a naked intruder by grabbing the man's crotch and squeezing.
  • Soothsayers Predict Peace and Calm for 2009 — Chinese soothsayers warned that the road to economic recovery will be long, but say the world can expect peace and calm for 2009.
