One gay man, two lesbians, a three-legged cat and a poisoned curry plot

posted by Stal on 2009.10.10, under Stal

Movie deal, anyone? From the Daily Mail:

A gay man tried to poison his lesbian neighbours by putting slug pellets into their curry after he was accused of kidnapping their three-legged cat.

Gary Stewart, 37, had been at loggerheads with Marie Walton and Beverley Sales for months.

But things looked brighter when he made a peace offering of some curry, claiming he had ordered too much from the Indian takeaway.

When the women started to eat, they found the curry studded with slug pellets.

They called the police and Stewart was arrested.

I thought this was a sophisticated prank at first, but it’s actually scientifically possible:

Avoiding Speeding Tickets

In a novel approach to breaking the law, Dave Vontesmar of Phoenix managed to evade 37 speeding tickets by wearing a monkey mask while driving, and claiming not to have resembled the driver caught on camera. Unfortunately, the police did some additional surveillance work and caught Vontesmar putting on the monkey mask before driving off, thus proving that he was behind the wheel.

Fuel for Proposition 9?

Having met and become acquainted with a wide range of gays, bisexuals and furries, I claim to have a pretty open mind but this one threw me for a loop:

“Her structure is just amazing. You know, she’s got subtle, subtle curves, you know,” Erika Eiffel said of the famous Paris landmark. [...]

Eiffel, 36, is part of a small group of people across the world who call themselves “objectum sexuals” where their intimate life revolves around objects, not people. The objects can range from a home computer to a set of drums or a national monument, anything they can feel a connection to. It may sound strange to most of us, but it’s very real to them.

Is it just me, or has the Eiffel Tower traditionally been considered masculine and phallic? Does this make Ms. Eiffel an object-lesbian?
