Nude man beats car with pigeon. A pet pigeon.
Loud Barry Manilow and Doris Day music drives rowdies from Australian park, but the neighbors are going nuts. So what are officials considering? Switching to ABBA and Celine Dion. The sadists!
More news from "Down Under": Guy smuggles rare bird eggs in his underwear, says he was only trying to impress his girlfriend. Sure, she was going to peek, see a beak poking through a shell, and say, "Look at the little pecker!" Great plan.
Remember the Donovan McNabb bobblehead that looked like Luther Vandross? Well, that pales in comparison to the Great Bobblehead Boo-Boo in Baltimore. It was supposed to be a likeness of second baseman Brian Roberts, who's a white guy. But you couldn't be sure from the 20,000 bobbleheads the Orioles decided to return. Talk about lousy marketing departments. They should have given them out anyway, with coupons good at a tanning salons! The dolls, of course, are now selling on eBay.
Every year, at the Illinois Championship Cow Chip Throw, so much dung gets flung, people get "pooped"! Sounds like a Phillies press conference.
Kitten born with two faces is missing. Someone may have stolen it, story says. Why?

In Jesus news: (1) Hawaii man gets tossed in the clink for shouting "Thank you, Jesus!" after being exonerated of child abuse. (2) There's a statue of Jesus in Hoboken that its discoverer swears opened one eye! Photo suggests cutline: "Here's looking at you, kid."
Some prognosticators can't wait. They have to predict NFL team's fortune even before training camp. Of course, these premature evaluators are about as accurate as a golfer wearing oven mitts. But, hey, if it's football it still fascinates. So here's who's predicted what so far. Bottom line: Everybody thinks the Eagles will be better, but nobody's predicting a return to playoff-shoe-in status. By the way, if you know of an overlooked respectable source, name-drop it in a comment.
