The Randomness Of MISC





…with a tiger on a leash. A joke? Of course not. John Basile faces misdemeanor charges after he took the big cat into Uncle Richie’s bar in Lockport, Illinois. Mr Basile owns Big Run Wolf Ranch, a run-down animal rescue centre where he keeps wolves, a bear and the tiger. Witnesses say people started screaming “Is that a tiger?” in disbelief, after Mr Basile and his feline companion walked in. Terry Lemming, Lockport police chief, said: “My concern really was for the people that frequent the downtown area. This was at 7.30 at night on a Sunday in an area that has a lot of people walking around.” It is not the first time a big cat has visited the bar – after a woman was bitten by a tiger at the same drinking spot last December. He just didn’t learn, did he?





A zoo in North Korea has reportedly welcomed its newest animal attraction – a simply captivating pack of Yorkshire Terriers. The miniature dogs have been introduced to Central Zoo in the capital Pyongyang, according to state media. Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) said the dogs are now learning “several feats”, although it did not elaborate on the type of tricks they might perform. North Koreans not familiar with ‘Yorkies’, were even given a description of them.

















Police in Lancashire are trying to trace a pair of teenage pranksters after they slapped an unsuspecting supermarket worker across the face with a wet fish. A young woman had approached the fish counter and was asking about different fish when she suddenly struck the Asda employee. “Without warning, the woman picked up a large bream from the fish stall and slapped the worker across the face before running out of the store,” said a police spokesman. The victim believes the incident was being filmed on a mobile phone by a man stood nearby who also ran from the scene when challenged. Police released CCTV images of the couple who were both said to be between 15 and 18-years-old. PC Graham Hartley said: “This behaviour is completely unacceptable and I would appeal to anybody that witnessed this incident to come forward.” Simply shocking.



















A new app aims to allow users to spend more time with their ‘bros’ by sending automated messages to their girlfriends. The BroApp, which is available in the Android Play Store, allows users to send a series of automated lovey dovey messages. Australian developers Factorial Products Ltd. describe the app as “smart” and a key way of “maximising your relationship”. Users are asked to type in their girlfriend’s name and number when they first download the app, and after that it’s up to them to write the messages. The app even detects when the user is at his girlfriend’s house by identifying her WiFi network, and doesn’t send any messages then – which would blow the whole cover. It also detects when the user has messaged his girlfriend in real time, or she has messaged him, and cancels any pre-written texts to avoid arousing suspicion. Is this a work of genius or simply a sexist con?
