Naked Rugby Team Beaten By Women

New Zealand’s naked rugby team, the so-called Nude Blacks, have lost for the first time in their nine-year history – to a women’s team. But an offer by the clothed women’s team – to remove an item of clothing for each try they scored – may have influenced the result. Asked if they had let the visiting Spanish Conquistadoras score a few easy tries, Brad Henderson, 23, replied: “Of course.” The all-amateur Nude Blacks – named for the country’s elite All Blacks side – played the exhibition game in New Zealand ahead of the World Cup clash between Argentina and England. The Nude Blacks play an invitational side before every international rugby game in Dunedin, where they are based. A crowd of about 1,500 watched the all-male team get beaten 25-20 by the Conquistadoras who count a pole dancer, a teacher and a student among their members. The all-girl side started out in blue shirts and black shorts, with underwear in co-ordinated pink layers, so they could still tell what team they were on.” w/ photo

Cartoony Prank

“What happens here is hard to explain – basically, there’s a pair of twin cops and a pair of twin thieves but two of them are hidden at first. The thief steals a bag near an unsuspecting victim is standing or walking. The cop shows up and runs after the thief whiling drawing the victim with him. Then they stumble on a Scooby Doo movie set and do the whole ‘people running after one another and coming in and out of different doors routine.” — JFL

World’s Largest Chocolate Bar

Chocoholics have gone into meltdown over the latest world record attempt by American confectionery maker World’s Finest Chocolate. The four-piece bar was weighed at a mouth watering yet precise 12,290 pounds, or a whopping 5.5 tonnes. Smashing the previous Guinness World Record by more than a tonne, workers and hundreds of guests looked on in amazement as the 21-foot long treat made its way across the factory floor in Chicago. World’s Finest Chocolate created the bar as part of a campaign called ‘Think Big Eat Smart’ which is aimed at teaching American school children about proportionate eating.” w/ photos
