A man in Ireland caused a stir when he led a horse through a supermarket. In a video posted online, onlookers at a Tesco store in Dublin laugh as the horse calmly clip-clops through the market’s clothing aisles; the man and his horse were soon ejected. “We’d like to reassure customers that the animal did not enter any fresh food aisles,” said a Tesco spokesperson. The man brought the same horse into a local pub later in the day.
A Toronto man made a likeness of Mona Lisa on his backyard ice rink using a snow shovel and a hockey stick. After a winter storm covered the rink with snow, Robert Greenfield used the two tools to re-create the features of the famous Leonardo da Vinci painting. What’s more, a time-lapse video he shot of his labors—and then posted to Facebook—generated news accounts as far away as India. “This is not exactly a masterpiece, but I present the Snowna Lisa!” Greenfield wrote in his post. “It should be hanging in the Igloouvre.”
Students at a Maryland university complained after a woman approached numerous female students asking if they would consider dating her son. Each time, the unidentified woman entered a Towson University campus building and showed the co-ed a cellphone photo of a young man. University spokesman Sean Welsh said the woman’s behavior “may cause concern,” so they were trying to find her to ask her to stop. ■
