Getting trapped in the bathroom of your apartment for three weeks and only drinking warm water from the tap…$0. Having the neighbors start a petition to stop the inconsiderate bastard from tapping on the pipes every night….priceless. The 69 year old from Paris, who became trapped when the door lock broke, was eventually rescued after her neighbors realized she was the one making the racket in an attempt to get help. Whoopsie!

This is either reverse psychology by the United Nations or it’s a friggin typo. Guess who has a four year seat on the U.N.’s Commission on the Status of Women? Come on, have a wild stab! Iran people, Iran. WTF! Evidently if you read right down deep on the latest U.N. press release, you’ll find it. They, with 10 other nations were “elected by acclamation” (no open vote). Terrific. I guess it will save them on paperwork… who needs to send them a harsh letter condemning their stoning and lashing of women, when they can just slip them a note at one of their get togethers. Hmm, I wonder if anyone will raise the issue of boobquake? You know,where the senior clerics believe earthquakes are caused by women who wear revealing clothing. Anywho, while everyone is left scratching their heads in wonderment a group of Iranian activists sent a petition to the United Nations saying in part “women lack the ability to choose their husbands, have no independent right to education after marriage, no right to divorce, no right to child custody, have no protection from violent treatment in public spaces, are restricted by quotas for women’s admission at universities, and are arrested, beaten, and imprisoned for peacefully seeking change of such laws.” I’d love to be a fly on the wall of their first meeting!
David Kiely may not want to show his face ever again on TV but a financial website has set up a campaign to try and save the Macquarie banker’s job. Need I remind you who he is? Mr Kiely is the unfortunate soul who opened up an email of naked super model Miranda Kerr while on live TV. Click here if you missed it Embarrassed Much. Well anywho, rumors are flying around faster than Elin’s 9 iron that despite him being set up by his colleagues , he is going to be sacked. So the Here is the City website is encouraging readers to email the PR department of Macquarie to beg them not to sack him.Poor unfortunate soul.
So when is changing the name of a street, racist? When the name is Punjab Place. Seems the residents at Boronia Heights in Brisbane really don’t like the name and think Oak Tree Place is more appropriate and prettier. So they have put in a petition to the local council to have it changed. Oh dear, it seems Developer Manjit Bopirai isn’t happy! Mr Bopirai is the guy who requested the name in the first place and is planning to fight the petition because he believes they are just being racist. Mr Bopirai says “It’s our heritage, it’s our money. We can name it whatever we like,”. Further more he added “I have never called Australia a racist country but in this instance I will.” Oh boy, meanwhile back at the residents camp, they believe the name Oak Tree is more appropriate considering it runs along Oak Tree Lifestyle Village. Anywho even the Global Organization of People of Indian Origin have joined in the fight saying “Regardless of whether this is just because one name is prettier than another, people in India would see it as a terrible slur.”
Psst Would Australians be upset if locals in India petitioned to change a street name that had connections to the land down under?
