Word of warning to anyone planning to play bingo for biscuits while holidaying in Portugal. That’s illegal gambling right there. Portugal police swooped on a group of British ex pats and bundled them into three police vans because they were playing bingo for cookies at a bar. They were all fined over $1000 and the landlady received a 4 months suspended prison sentence. Oh wait, there’s more. The people in the bar , who were not participating in the game, also received a fine for “witnessing illegal gambling”.

Come on people, where else would you get that up close and personal with a pride of lions? Geez, a group of British tourists are pissed that their resort safari jeep overturned and spilled them into a bunch of angry lions (Gosh, you know how many people would kill for that opportunity?). The incident happened at the Sanbona Wildlife Reserve near Cape Town. They are blaming the driver for causing the tip over by reversing too fast up a steep embankment. Added to the trauma was the fact the lions saw the tourists as ..well lunch! Needless to say they are suing the asses off the park.
