Odd Spot #4.

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

A leading Zambian politician has been arrested for calling the President, Michael Sata, a potato. Frank Bwalya, head of the Alliance for a Better Zambia and a former priest, could face five years in jail for referring to Mr Sata as "Chumbu Mushololwa"- a Bemba word for a sweet potato - during a radio broadcast.


Residents of Northampton, England, feared the end of the world was nigh when a stream turned blood-red. One commented on Facebook: "The start of the book of revelations. "Thou local waters will turn red like blood" is the sign of the coming of the Anti-Christ." The "apocalypse" turned out to be an ink spillage, leaving doomsayers red-faced. emoticon

Purists may turn their noses up at pineapple but one Florida restaurant is doing a roaring trade in python pizza, thanks to a glut of the slithery creatures. The Fort Myers restaurant is even better known for its Everglades pie, replete with wild hog, alligator, tomato, frogs legs and swamp cabbage. The python pizza is pricey at $45, says restaurant owner Evan Daniell, but very popular, and he will sell by the sssslice. emoticon

Sadly, no one realised that North Carolina councillor David Waddell had boldly moved on, because he wrote his resignation letter in Klingon, the fictional language of TV series 'Star Trek'. Indian Trail mayor Michael Alvares said he was disappointed to see Mr Waddell go, but in the words of Spock, hoped he would "live long and prosper" in his new life.

Agents on Her Majesty's service are to be allowed to break UK speed limits for the first time. Unlike on Television, MI5 and MI6 officers have to abide by the rules of the road, even if national security is threatened. Organ transplant couriers, bomb disposal units and mountain rescue teams are also likely to be put on the exempt list.

    I know what you mean Ann about the roads in UK, very narrow, with high hedges in the countryside. Been there, drove on them.
At least in most countries, when you insult a President you don't end up with a possible 5 year jail term.
