A Russian fishing blog has sent anglers scrambling to catch giant mutant catfish said to be growing near the site of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. The blog even included a picture of one catfish that locals are calling Borka, and which they claim is more than two metres long. emoticon emoticon

A university student wanted for jumping bail on a drink-driving charge in New York was caught after he made a joke to a newspaper and it printed his photo. Jacob Close, 25, was arrested at Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania at the weekend after his photo ran in a local paper.
Close was asked whether the Washington Redskins gridiron team should change their name, which has come under fire from Native Americans. "I think they should keep the same name, but change the mascot to a potato," Close joked. He was nabbed on Sunday.

A New Jersey man has been found guilty of duping a 15-year-old girl into thinking she had signed a "sex contract" with him.
Gregory Schaffer, 35, faces up to life in jail for offering the teenager a job at a non-existent Victoria's Secret store, then telling her she'd filled out forms that compelled her to have sex with him. Schaffer answered her innocent 2012 ad on Craiglist seeking retail work.
She initially resisted but eventually buckled when he threatened to sue her. Prosecutors said she was only one of a string of his teen victims.

What a creep! I hope he does get life, without parole.

John Wayne's heirs are taking Duke University to court over the family's right to market bourbon branded with the late star's nickname, Duke.
It's the latest in a long-running legal duel between the North Carolina university and California-based John Wayne Enterprises over products featuring the name. Uni lawyers say it may cause confusion and "diminish, dilute and tarnish" the value of the name, for which both parties hold trademarks.

A Frontier Airlines pilot treated passengers to a surprise pizza party after storms diverted a Denver-bound flight to Cheyenne, Wyoming and they ran out of food. Stuck on a runway for two hours, captain Gerhard Bradner ordered 38 pizzas emoticon for the 160 passengers, who cheered when they heard the news.
Now that's just plane nice. emoticon
