Awesome Man Proves Awesomeness By Smoking Pages Of Koran & Bible,
Pissing Everyone Off

An Australian lawyer provoked controversy by posting online
a video of
himself smoking roll-ups made with pages torn from the Koran and the
Bible. Alex Stewart's 12 minute clip, entitled Bible or Koran - which
burns best?, has now been deleted from YouTube.

Mr Stewart, who works for the Queensland University of Technology,
holds up the two religious texts before ripping them apart and lighting
the rolled up pages.

At one stage he inhales deeply from one of the roll-ups before blowing
out the smoke and commenting: "Holy".

"With respect to books like the Bible and the Koran, whatever, just get
over it," Mr Stewart said in the footage. "People do this stuff all the
time and if people get really upset about this then they're taking it
far too seriously."

Man
Falls Asleep While Attempting Suicidal Jump

A suicidal man was saved when he fell asleep as he prepared
to hurl
himself from the top of a 150ft high bridge.

Desperate Yang Jun, 30, wanted to make sure he ended it all after
months of depression over his broken marriage.
So he downed more than 50 sleeping pills and then clambered up the
Haiyin bridge in Guangzhou, eastern China, to throw himself off.
 
But as he talked to negotiators, dad Jun found he couldn't keep his
eyes open and nodded off snoring loudly before he could leap to his
death.
 
Rescuers then strapped sleeping Jun into a safety harness before
winching him down to waiting paramedics.

Goat
Killed In Hilarious/Tragic Drive-By Shooting

Police in Santa Fe are searching for the suspect or
suspects in a
drive-by shooting that killed a pet goat. Santa Fe Police Chief Aric
Wheeler says his agency is extremely concerned because the shooting
happened in a central city neighborhood.

The shooting happened Sunday evening and killed Maria, a Nigerian dwarf
goat who lived with two other goats and several other animals at the
home.

Hootie,
Blowfish Inexplicably Given Their Own Monument

Hootie & The Blowfish is [inexplicably] getting a
monument in South
Carolina's capital city. The State newspaper reported that a large
steel and black granite ["]art["] piece will be unveiled Oct. 21 in
Columbia's Five Points neighborhood, blocks from the University of
South Carolina.
 
The newspaper reported the monument [which apparently took more than
fifteen full years to design] is expected to be about 20 feet [too]
long, 10 feet [too] wide and at least 12 feet [too] tall. The Southern
rockers [somehow] sold more than 16 million copies of their debut
album, "Cracked Rear View," released in 1994.
 
[Thankfully,] the band hasn't played together much recently [but
somehow they still have the balls to] celebrate their 25th anniversary
next year. Lead singer Darius Rucker has enjoyed a resurgence in
country music, [and has been threatening to release] his second solo
country album next month.
