Tournament ousts Jesus look-alike
A 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.”

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.”
