Nutty Squirrel Plays!

As a double act, this pair of squirrels has got their audience going nuts. The two grey squirrels have been photographed riding a skateboard, playing a piano and even pushing a wheelchair in Tampa, Florida. Retired postwoman Kathy Pruyn sets up the hilarious scenes by strategically placing peanuts and peanut butter among the toys. One comical shot shows one of the furry critters ‘singing’ into a microphone while another shoots a game of pool. Another apparently shows a squirrel towing a group of cuddly toys in a children’s cart. Mrs Pruyn said: ‘I fed the squirrels after they had fallen out of a nest and when I released them they still came back to my garden for food. ‘One day I was going through the old toys that needed throwing out and I just thought it would be funny to see the squirrels with them.” w/ photos

Truck Gets Stuck Between Two Buildings

A lorry driver ended up with a face as red as the cab of his truck after a satnav blunder left him stuck in a narrow alley in the village of Bruton, Somerset. The driver, who remains anonymous, was delivering soft drinks in the sleepy village and was searching for a parking space when his lorry became stuck between a house and an estate agents. Thanks to the lane’s steep incline, he was unable to reverse back up the street and had no choice but to stay put and endure the taunts of the locals, who found the whole incident much more amusing than his boss. Mike Clifford, landlord at the nearby Sun Inn, told The Daily Mail: ‘Very little happens in Bruton, so this event was the talk of the town and the driver got ripped to pieces by the locals when he came into the pub. ‘When he asked where the toilets were a lot of people started giving him directions and telling him to shout if he got stuck in there.’ The driver was forced to sleep in his cab overnight while a rescue team was sent out to tow him back up the street, causing minor damage to property, and has since been suspended from his job at Ian Crank Soft Drinks.” w/ photo

Woman Poses Naked Inside Dead Horse

“The woman seen in the video (and her boyfriend) had recently taken over care of the 32-year-old horse, which was in declining health. The horse had lived in Ridgefield, Washington. The couple told sheriff’s investigators that they fired a single shot with a high powered rifle to put the horse down. Their intent, apparently, was to humanely kill the horse and eat the meat. However, after the horse had been put down and gutted, the woman undressed and crawled inside the carcass of the dead horse and took pictures to prove it. The 21-year-old woman told the Washington County Sheriff’s Office that she wanted to ‘feel one’ with a horse.” — DesastreNatural

Motorized La-Z-Boy

“Inspired by his friend’s couch on wheels, William Keller built this motorized La-Z-Boy to get around the Playa at Burning Man. It’s controlled by a modded video game controller and driven by an electric motor. Kids and adults alike are delighted by the moving recliner as it zooms around the grounds of Maker Faire Bay Area 2011.”
