Deborah Sengl's "crucified chicken" is currently on display at the city museum of Wiener Neustadt, in Austria. A lot of catholics don't like it one bit, but Sengl insists she's being misunderstood. It's not about christianity, she says. Instead it's "a statement about the pain inflicted by butchers during food processing."
How do all these guys not have broken legs? I didn't really believe people could play football on unicycles, but now there are nine teams competing in Texas. How do you even throw a football while on a unicycle being chased by other uni-cyclists?
Great slow motion action with great music!!
Here's a link to a USA Today story about Unicycle Football:
According to this youtube video, the secret is to remove the glands under the legs. The end result is meat so tasty "you'll slap your grandma."
Another pro tip: If you didn't road kill the raccoon yourself, and are getting an already skinned animal from a trapper or hunter, make sure the feet are still attached. Otherwise, you might have been given a cat or opossum. Apparently this is an old trick in the raccoon meat trade.

After recovering from her illness, she took a sudden and passionate interest in drawing, creating thousands of mediumistic works over the following 40 years, most done with ink in black and white. The works came in all sizes, from postcard-sized to huge sheets of fabric, some over 30 feet (9.1 m) long. She claimed to be guided by a spirit she called "Myrninerest" (my inner rest) and often signed her works in this name.
A British man came up with a genius idea to discourage telemarketing calls. He has England's equivalent of a 900 number that he gives to businesses he deals with. Friends and family get his private, non-pay number but all others who wish to contact him pay for the privilege. He receives less than half the number of telemarketing calls that he used to each month and so far he has made more than $450 from the line. Awesome!
