  • October 26, 2003 -- A toy dog that breaks wind as it bends over caused a major security alert at a Virginia airport. Something in Dave Rogerson's dog's wind breaking mechanism set off an explosives detector a the airport in Norfolk. "They told me it was the highest reading they had for explosives and they took it very seriously,"said Rogerson. "They were very jumpy and convinced there was something explosive in the dog."

    • October 27, 2003 -- It may sound asinine, but Paul and Lisa Allott moved from their cozy bungalow in Conisbrough, northern England, because they were embarrassed by the name of their street - Butt Hole Road. They said their calls for taxis and pizza deliveries were ignored because everyone figured they were pranksters. And they got fed up with the teens who constantly posed under the street sign - their buns bared. "I like a laugh, but it was beyond a joke," Paul Allott told The Sun newspaper.

        • Shoo...shoo....go away!

          TOKYO (AP) - Police in southern Japan arrested a man for
          stealing shoes at a local hospital, then later stumbled upon a
          collection in his home of 440 women's shoes - all for the left
          foot, an official said Sunday.
          The private hospital in Usu city began receiving complaints two
          years ago from patients and employees that shoes removed at the
          entrance hall were going missing. In Japan, it is customary to take
          off one's shoes before entering homes and some public facilities.
          The missing footwear was always women's shoes and for the left
          foot, a local police spokesman said on condition of anonymity.
          Police arrested Ichiro Irie, 45, Saturday on suspicion of
          stealing two shoes at the hospital.
          In a subsequent search of his home, police found a box
          overflowing with the left side to 440 pairs of women's shoes,
          including high heels, patent leather pumps, sandals and nurses'
          shoes.
          When questioned, Irie told police he had "a penchant for
          women's feet," the major daily Yomiuri newspaper said. It wasn't
          clear why he seemed to prefer the left foot.
          Irie was charged with theft. It wasn't immediately clear what
          punishment he faces.
          Given the number of shoes he allegedly swiped, police are
          investigating whether Irie may have been stealing from other
          locations. Usu lies about 800 kilometers (505 miles) south of
          Tokyo.

          • Clumsy Dutch robbers smash bank, lose loot
            AMSTERDAM, Oct 25 (Reuters) - Bungling bank robbers smashed
            a hole in a Dutch bank on Saturday but lost their loot when it
            fell off the back of their truck during the getaway.
            The thieves rammed the front of the bank in the northern
            Dutch town of Sappemeer and hoisted a safe from a cash machine
            onto a pickup truck. But the safe slipped off the back of the
            truck as the gang sped away.
            Police said they were in pursuit of the clumsy criminals.

              • NAIROBI, Kenya (Reuters) - Kenyan students set fire to
                their school, ransacked the kitchens and looted computers in a
                three-hour bout of destruction after teachers banned video
                shows and discos, newspapers reported Monday.
                Police using tear gas dispersed teen-agers at the Kinyui
                Boys School in eastern Kenya after many of its 760 pupils went
                on the rampage Saturday night to protest the ban, which
                teachers said was designed to give them more time to study.
                Police were not immediately available for comment.

                • Escaped German convict arrested posing as policeman
                  BERLIN, Oct 27 (Reuters) - German police arrested an escaped
                  convict after discovering him posing as a traffic policeman in a
                  stolen car, authorities said on Monday.
                  "He had a blue roof light and stop signs in the car and said
                  he'd made 130 euros ($153) carrying out routine traffic
                  controls," said a police spokeswoman in the eastern town of
                  Bernau.
                  A quick check revealed the 33-year-old bogus policeman was
                  already wanted by a prison in Hanover where he had failed to
                  return from home leave the week earlier. Police said he now
                  faces the prospect of another sentence for usurpation of office.

                  • October 28, 2003 -- A Colorado blood drive is tempting squeamish volunteers to give a pint of blood - by offering them a pint of beer. Four local breweries are supporting the promotion by the United Blood Services of Durango. And just for the record, the donors get their pint after they finish giving blood. ...heard there was a big line of firefighters waiting to give blood...

"The warning came after the director, known as Cesare, advertised in local Romanian newspapers for free talent for his cheapo film shoots."The men are happy with what they are being asked to do," Cesare insists. "They do it for fun. They only get whisky and energy drinks during shooting, but they are not complaining."

                              • Grave concerns?

                                PARIS (AP) - Just in time for Halloween, a macabre guide book
                                tells readers where dead celebrities are buried in France.
                                The latest "Guide to Celebrity Tombstones" spends 322 pages
                                mapping 7,000 tombs of personalities from literature, cinema,
                                theater, science, religion, sports, politics and military history.
                                "It's a little like my address book, but the addresses here are
                                permanent," author Betrand Beyern said Thursday on France-Info
                                radio.
                                "The book answers two questions: where is such and such a
                                person buried ... and who is buried in my region, in my city or in
                                the village where I like to spend my holidays."
                                Napoleon Bonaparte's tomb at Les Invalides monument in Paris is
                                one of the most visited, he said.
                                Others are Le Pantheon that houses Victor Hugo, Emile Zola and
                                other luminaries, and The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier that honors
                                French war dead.
                                Another popular site is the tomb of Jim Morrison, singer for The
                                Doors, who died in 1971, Beyern said. Morrison is buried at the
                                Pere Lachaise cemetery in eastern Paris.
                                "In Paris, we often walk all over deceased celebrities without
                                even realizing it," the Beyern said.
                                The grave of French satirist Francois Rabelais, who died in
                                1553, is under a popular store in the capital's central Marais
                                district.
                                The guide also mentions celebrity animals' tombs, with perhaps
                                the most famous being canine movie star Rin Tin Tin, a German
                                shepherd buried outside Paris.
