It must be true…
I read it in the tabloids
A Cincinnati man who subsisted only on craft beer for Lent lost 44 pounds and claims he’s never felt better. Del Hall said he was inspired by 17th-century Bavarian monks who spent all 46 days of Lent without eating and limiting their caloric intake to a hearty beer called doppelbock. Hall, who works at a craft brewery, said that he “lost his addiction to food” after the first week. “My health is so much better,” he said. “My blood pressure. My cholesterol. Everything has improved. Craft beer is the way to go.”
The Indian army has drawn widespread ridicule after publishing photos of “mysterious footprints” it said were created by a yeti, or Abominable Snowman. The army claimed that the 32-inch prints were evidence of the “elusive Snowman.” But skeptics noted that the footprints were in a single line, and wondered if they were proof of a “mythological one-legged creature.” The Nepalese army investigated the sighting and said the prints were likely made by a Himalayan black bear and its cub, and then enlarged by sunshine and the wind.
An airline passenger was briefly detained by security for traveling with moose poop in his carry-on bag. The incident occurred at Juneau International Airport after TSA screening equipment detected a “large organic mass” in the unnamed man’s luggage. He told agents he collects moose nuggets and enjoys presenting them as symbols of “politicians and their s--- policies.” The man was allowed to board with his stinky cargo. ■
