This Week in Weird News:
Extremely Smelly Man
Causes Plane to Emergency Land
By Kyzia Maramara
We’ve finally reached the end of the week, and to celebrate, how about we bring you the latest from the weirdest (i.e. grossest) news we’ve seen this week? Kick back your shoes, heat up your wonton soup, and let’s go!
1. Man gets kicked out of plane from being too smelly
Man evicted from plane after emitting foul odor
Just how unbearable and awful do you have to smell for a whole flight do an emergency landing? A Transavia Airlines plane en route to Gran Canaria, Spain had to do an emergency landing in Portugal a mere one and a half hour after departure. The reason? The man sitting in the back row emitted a body odor so strong it caused people to vomit and faint.
The passengers couldn’t bear the stench which some described as “unbearable” and “it was like he hadn’t washed himself for several weeks.” The situation got to the point where the flight crew quarantined him in the restroom and they couldn’t serve food and drinks. When they landed eventually, the smelly dude was escorted to a waiting medical team.
The situation isn’t new to Transavia Airlines, in fact back in February, a man on a flight between Dubai and Amsterdam caused fights for excessive farting – his seatmates weren’t impressed. The plane had to make an emergency landing in Vienna to hand over the troublemakers to the right authority.
2. Woman took a feces shower and had a crappy day
Squeamish? Avert your eyes now before I tell you that a woman in British Columbia was rained on by liquid poo. LIQUID POO. Susan Allan told the horrific story of how she and her son were sitting in traffic when suddenly feces rained from the sunroof – it covered everything: her body, her face, her car, and even the car behind her. Naturally, she and her son looked up at the clear sky and then saw a passenger plane flying overhead.
As a result of the feces shower, Susan now has conjunctivitis due to feces in both eyes and is asking for compensation for injuries and for her car to be professionally cleaned.
3. R.I.P: “Better place without you”
Relatives of a woman who passed away in Minnesota paid for her obituary to be printed in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. It started normal enough stating she married and had two kids but by the third paragraph, the write up took a dark turn. It turns out this woman got pregnant from her affair with her brother-in-law and abandoned her two children to live with him in California.
The obituary grudgingly wrote “She will not be missed.. the world is a better place without her” and you can imagine all the people reading their morning paper choking in their morning coffee.
4. A nosey wonton soup
Just heated up my wonton soup up from the Chinese restaurant and seen this shit……IM DONE WITH CHINESE FOOD BRUH!!! TF
Facebook user Kelgin Haskins went home last Tuesday and felt hungry. He proceeded to heat the wonton soup he got from a Chinese restaurant. He was maybe contemplating on watching a Netflix movie or going straight to sleep afterwards, but what he wasn’t prepared for was for his stomach to roll over. No human guts over here, just goat nose apparently. Run Kelgin! That ain’t no wonton soup!
5. 30-year-old got evicted by parents: “We don’t want you here”
As Filipinos we love our families to death, we can’t image kicking them out of the house! We want them to stay with us forever. I’m pretty sure Michael Rotondo wishes he was born in the Philippines.
Thirty-year-old Michael sadly packed his bags and moved out of his parents’ home in New York after a court ruling order. Michael has been living in the house for 8 years with his parents and obviously they’ve had enough. They filed a law suit against him, offered him $1,100 to find a new home, and ordered him never to return to the house. OUCH.
Michael is left dumbfounded since he didn’t know where he went wrong. He took care of his meals and his own bills and testified that he never bothered his parents. We may never know the truth but all we can do is hope Michael is safe.
6. Melons worth your dream car
A pair of premium melons in Japan sold for Php 1.5 Million and we are not kidding. These are Yubari Japanese melons and they are deemed special in Japan since they are seasonal and are therefore pretty expensive. Japanese consider fruit as luxury items and they buy them as gift for their friends. The millionaire buyer and bidding winner Shinya Noda said that he bought the melon as celebration of his fruit and vegetable packaging company’s 20th anniversary.
Imagine having enough money to buy a house or a car, or even thousands of Jollibee meals and a trip to Paris but spending it all on two edible melons. Worth it!
7. A millionaire from fake dog balls
We have to give Greg Miller credit for pushing through with Neuticles even though everybody around him told him it was stupid and futile. And just look at where the 64-year-old is now, a millionaire and in the process of making as much fake dog balls as you can imagine.
Miller shared that it started when his dog ran away for 4 days following a female dog in heat, he decided to have him neutered afterwards but got sad when he saw his balls-less dog. Miller then asked the vet if there was somebody who supplied fake dog balls so neutered dogs can maintain their natural God-given look. The vet told him it was the craziest thing he’s heard.
A few weeks later, the vet came to Miller and told him maybe it wasn’t such a bad idea. They went and worked on a prototype. Developing Neuticles cost him everything, he got maxed out but he never lost faith in the product. Apparently a lot of people appreciate these testicular implants on their dogs!
And when asked if he has plans to make testicular implants for men, he claims that the FDA approval process would be too much of a hassle.
