EGG ON A STICK?!
This is so crafty. Now you can cook poached eggs perfectly...although they'll be in a stranger shape than what you're used to!
This new gadget is on the market for $40 in America. Let's hope it comes to Oz soon...who doesn't want egg on a stick from a gadget called the 'Rollie Eggmaster'?!

JOHNNY DEPP ATTACKED...
...by a Chupacabra?
Well, that was his excuse for missing a news conference for his new movie 'Mortdecai' in Tokyo.
"I was attacked yesterday morning by a very rarely seen or experienced animal called 'chupacabra.' I fought with it for hours. They're very persistent, very mean. And I'm pretty sure it came into my suitcase. I threw him off the 23rd floor. So we'll never see him again. Thank you for understanding," he said.
And that is pretty much why we love the man. We wonder if any kids will be using that one at school, instead of 'the dog ate my homework'!
FYI a Chupacabra is a legendary, mythical creature.

DIVERS IN POO-NARMI
Imagine being next to a large sperm whale when it releases a 'large bowel movement'. Well, that's what happened to four guys in water off Dominica.
The divers chose not to wear scuba gear, because they didn't want to disturb the whales....so unfortunately for them, they got covered!
When the ‘poo-narmi’ was released the guys were just wearing a snorkel and googles. Yep, that's right, bits of faecal matter got everywhere.
To make matters worse, the guys said 'the whale spun in circles and waved the poo in every direction for several minutes while we just sat back and watched.'
The lesson...don't mess with sperm whales.

GUY CAUGHT WEEING IN A WASHING MACHINE
This guy is clearly not house trained!
He pulls up a chair in order to pee in to the machine and we’re feeling glad that it’s not our washing.
The only positive thing we have to say about this is…at least he closes the lid afterwards.
You have to see this!

JOHN TRAVOLTA MAKES FRIENDS AT THE GYM
He’s introduced himself to a guy, alone, at the gym, at 3am, and the internet is going crazy.
We think it’s pretty polite that he did the introduction. After all, it stops any awkwardness of being the only 2 guys there…or maybe it creates it.
Either way, the only thing we’re wondering is why, when you have all those private jets, you don’t have a private gym?
