So what is Belgian famous for…other than chocolate? Anyone? Well, evidently beer drinking. So much so Belgium has applied to have its beer culture listed on UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage List. On the application they state “It plays a role in daily life, as well as festive occasions,” …. and “Almost 1,500 types of beer are produced in the country including by some Trappist communities.”

Want pizza in Japan during winter? Well you can AND have it delivered by a reindeer. Trials are underway in Hokkaido to train reindeer to deliver Domino pizzas. It is so going to happen as soon as they work out how to get them to behave and how to attach the delivery boxes securely on their backs . Good luck with that, pizza maybe cold.
The “lovely lady” Florence Henderson of Brady Bunch fame has passed away at 82. No more stories.
Mate, if ever there was an Aussie legend…. Daniel McConnell gives a detailed account of how he chased down a guy, who had just crashed into a Fish and Chip shop, in his jocks and little purple car.
When it comes to Australian wildlife we definitely have some winners. The latest discovery includes a frog whose groin flashes orange to startle its predators and give it a chance to make a quick exit.
PSST I swear I too would run if any creature’s groin flashed orange … just saying.
China has put its foot down on people searching for Kim Jung Un by typing “Fatty Kim the Third”. It has now been blocked. Seriously people, no one approves of ridiculing foreign leaders. Am I right Loons, am I right?
An 86 year old guy in an assisted living facility was encouraged to take up…wait for it…knitting, by the staff. Now he, and a few other residents have just delivered 350 knitted caps to premmie babies at an Atlanta hospital. Take a bow Ed Mosely, he knitted 55 of them.
The Swedish labor union have just opened a hotline for frustrated women who can’t deal with ‘mansplaining’. Naw, Bless. Yep, evidently it is in epidemic proportions. For those of you unfamiliar with the word “mansplaining”, it is when a male is condescending to a female by over explaining something that the woman already understands.
PSST : Confession time, I’m a tad guilty in womansplaining when my partner decides to cook….just saying.
What we have all learnt from this year’s US presidential election is to never, ever make a bet. Just ask Sam Wang, founder of the Princeton Election Consortium, who promised to eat a bug if Trump received more that 240 electoral votes. Silly man. I am personally owed 2 lunches for the suckers who thought Hillary was a romp in. Now, now before you all go hate on me, I wasn’t hoping for a Trump win, just loving the reaction I got when I said he was going to win.
A Florida man is now has the Guinness World Record holder for the largest collection of Dino shit. That would be fossilised feces, 1,277 pieces to be exact. His largest nugget of Dinosaur waste is 4lb 3.5 ounces and it’s named precious…..naw.
