Warning: Polar bears do NOT like playing patty-cake

April 12, 2009

The German woman below thought a polar bear at the Berlin Zoo needed a hug. So, she hopped a fence, a “prickly hedge”, and a wall to then jump into the polar bears’ enclosure. She proceeded to swim toward the polar bear when the polar bear did what polar bears do: mauled a weaker, slower potential threat/source of food. Can we already crown the 2009 Idiot of the Year? Huh? Can we?  The woman was pulled out by Berlin Zoo personnel and she remains hospitalized.  Check out the pics and video below.

Shit happens: Manure thief falls into dung, flees nude.

June 27, 2008

BERLIN (Reuters) A woman trying to make “manure bombs” using stockings, slipped into a slurry tank and fled the scene naked, German police said Friday.

Two women entered a farm in the northern village of Eberholzen Wednesday evening and started to fill the stockings with manure.

“One of them slipped into the manure tank, right into the cow muck,” said a spokesman for local police. “The other one helped her out. We found their clothes in a field. One seems to have run off completely naked, the other in her underwear.”

Police said it was unclear what the women had intended to do with the “manure bombs,” but added the incident could be linked to victory celebrations surrounding the Euro 2008 semi-finals on Wednesday evening, when Germany beat Turkey 3-2.

“The women can get their clothes back from the local police station — unwashed,” the spokesman added.
