Radish Animals

A new book going on sale soon in Japan teaches the art of making "radish animals." All you need is a pile of grated daikon radish. Then mold it into the shape of whatever animal strikes your fancy. And delight and amuse your guests. [via RocketNews24]

Can we believe that this is a genuine taxidermied fox head? Even if not, very cool accessory even for today's bikes. Anger vegans everywhere!

Marty the Marijuana Mouse

Marty the Mouse became famous in 1974 after he made a home for himself in a box of marijuana stored in the evidence room of the San Jose, CA police station. Police were only able to lure him out by baiting a trap with marijuana seeds. (He ignored bacon, peanut butter, cheese, and a female mouse called Mata Hairy.) He became known as Marty the Marijuana Mouse.

But instead of killing him, he was first sent to UCLA to aid in studies of marijuana. Then he was returned to San Jose where he became a police mascot. When he died in Nov 1975, the nation mourned.

Money in Hamsters!

One of those vintage ads that promised easy money by starting a home animal-breeding program, such as raising giant frogs. I wonder if anyone who responded to one of these ads ever did end up making money from the hamsters or frogs. Source: Popular Mechanics, 1950

The Crazy Crow of Tullyallen

The Irish town of Tullyallen is being tormented by a "crazy crow." It chases schoolchildren down the road, pecks loudly at windows, and attacks dogs.

The crow has become such a well-known nuisance that it's been written about in the local paper, and it now has its own Facebook page.

However, some people speculate that maybe the crow is just lonely.
