To the cells, please, officer
Two police officers who stopped at traffic lights were surprised when a drunk climbed into the dark of their patrol car and asked to be taken to the cells. Police in Stockholm said: “He sort of fell into the back seat, but just said he wanted to go and sleep it off in a holding cell. The man was very intoxicated. He was brought in and left to sleep it off. After six hours we sent him home. it was still a lot better than when they pass out and we are forced to carry them away.”

Oh no, no, no
Apparently, there is such a thing as too many orgasms. Kim Ramsey, a 44-year-old nurse from New Jersey, America, feels constantly aroused and is plagued by up to 100 a day, which are triggered by even the smallest of movements. “Other women wonder how to have an orgasm,” she said. “I wonder how to stop mine.”
Walter, Walter everywhere
It can be difficult to agree on baby names, so when Erotides Brandao suggested to her husband Walter that they name their first child after him, he was delighted. In fact, he was so delighted that after their daughter Walterlucia was born, he requested that any other children they had were named after him, too. The couple, from Paraiba, Brazil, went on to have eight more daughters and six sons – Walterlivia, Walterlenia, Walterlonia, Walterlacia, Walterluzia, Walerluana, Walterangelina, Waltersilviana, Walteremanuel, Walterluis, Walteroliverio, Waltermarcelo, Walterlicinio and Walterfernando, as well as Walterlucia. Walter has now passed away but his name lives on with 33 grandchildren also named after him.
