Tournament ousts Jesus look-alike, and more

A British man was ejected from a darts tournament for looking too much like Jesus.

Tournament ousts Jesus look-alikeA British man was ejected from a darts tournament for looking too much like Jesus. Nathan Grindal, 33, has long hair and a full beard, and so resembles the traditional image of the Son of God that 5,000 fellow fans at this weekend’s Players Championship final started chanting, “Jesus! Jesus!” Event organizers say they were forced to escort Grindal from the premises so as not to distract the competitors. “It was all very weird and distressing,” says Grindal. “I didn’t go to the darts dressed as Jesus—I went as me.”

Stewart's bad habits strain relationship with PattinsonKristen Stewart’s personal hygiene is putting new strain on her relationship with Robert Pattinson, says the National Enquirer. When she’s hanging out at home, says a source, the 22-year-old Twilight star often fails to shower, “rarely washes her hair, only brushes her teeth once a day at best, and very rarely wears perfume.” Pattinson ignored Stewart’s slovenliness “before the whole cheating thing,” said the source, but since the humiliation of Stewart’s brief summer fling with director Rupert Sanders, he is “nowhere near as forgiving as he used to be.”

A new take on worker's compensationAn Australian court has awarded worker’s compensation to a woman who was injured while having sex on a business trip. The unnamed plaintiff suffered a facial injury when she and a male acquaintance knocked a light fixture off the wall above her bed. Her employers argued they hadn’t required the woman to have sex, but a court ruled that she was just as entitled to compensation as if she’d been “playing a game of cards in her motel room.”
