Funny news around world

It might sound like a chocoholic's dream, but stepping into a vat of viscous chocolate became a two-hour nightmare for a 21-year-old Garcia. He was pushing the chocolate down into the vat at Debelis Corp. Kenosha. because it was stuck. But it became loose and he slid into the hopper. The chocolate was 110 degrees, hotter than a hot tub. Co-workers, police and firefighters tried to free the man but couldn't get him loose until the chocolate was thinned out with cocoa butter. Garcia was treated for minor injuries and released.


Peewit the Lapwing was found at the side of a road with a compound fracture to his right knee. He was treated at wildlife hospital in Bournemouth, Dorset. Peewit is doing much better after a course of antibiotics and painkillers.


Housewife Lee Redmond has clawed her way into the Guinness World Records — by growing her fingernails to nearly 25 FEET. The American stopped cutting her talons back in 1979 and has managed to avoid breaking any for the past 27 years. Lee, from Salt Lake City, Utah, is flying to the UK next month to promote the 2007 edition of the Guinness book. Her nails, measuring a total of 24ft 7.8ins, don’t stop her doing everyday tasks such as vacuuming and washing up plus she cares for her husband, who has Alzheimer’s disease.
