You have to admit this is some really cool, but creepy graffitti animation. This is the kind of posting the readers of WU could help go viral even though it's two years old. Forward to everyone you know, and let's see if we can't get the creepy man-headed spider to fill the screens across the world!!
Don't you hate it when you open the door to your stomach and someone else crawls out?
Market place Foods in Hayward, Wisconsin had an interesting visitor Friday night. A 125 pound black bear sauntered in the automatic doors and through the store to the liquor cooler. No, he did not want a cold one, just a cool place. The bear entered the cooler and climbed up on a 12 foot high shelf. He stayed there, just chillin', for an hour while the store was evacuated and the authorities were called. Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources tranquilized the animal and removed it. That will liven up a mundane trip to the grocery store! http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/10/17/ap/strange/main5392929.shtml?tag=cbsnewsLeadStoriesAreaMain;cbsnewsLeadStoriesPrimary

...and I'll take you out! Who hasn't heard of this joking phrase often attributed to exasperated parents. Well, an 83 year old San Antonio man must have meant it even if he didn't say it. Early Friday morning, after his 50 year old son refused to stop playing drums Dad shot him. The son was grazed on the head by the bullet and ran up the street to call for help. If at 50 you are going to still live with a parent then it is advisable to follow house rules. The elderly man was charged with aggravated assault but when he gets out I bet Junior will listen next time dad says to stop that noise. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/10/16/ap/strange/main5390200.shtml?tag=cbsnewsLeadStoriesAreaMain;cbsnewsLeadStoriesHeadlines

Everyone is getting on the 'green' bandwagon. In Germany prostitution is legal but, as with most businesses, even the oldest profession is suffering due to the economic downturn. One brothel in Berlin has offered a discount to it's green conscious customers. Anyone arriving with proof of having used public transportation or a bicycle lock key to show they rode a bicycle there gets a 5 euro or $7.50 discount on their purchase of service. According to Thomas Goetz, owner of Maison 'd Envie (House of Desire), the offer has boosted the waining business. Goetz's discount is better thought out than another area brothel. The other business offered a flat rate for unlimited time and was force by officials to rescind the offer due to worker's rights issues. In Germany prostitutes have the same rights and benefits as other professions. Check out the story- http://www.usatoday.com/money/industries/environment/2009-10-16-brothel_N.htm
