Wheelie bin weirdness

London Evening Standard: Protesters barricade council leader's house with wheelie bins

Top marks for inventiveness, but lose a few for not filling them with turds.

Frighteningly good e-fit

Fleet News and Mail: This man flashed his willy at a teenage girl in a park in Fleet

All well and good, except, I live in Fleet and look like this:

I've burned my hoodie, and I've got a cast-iron alibi.

Don't have nightmares

Rubbish Ninja weirdness

Lancashire Telegraph: 'Ninja carrying a gun' turns out to be Star Wars cosplayer on a charity walk

Guns in public = a telling-off from the police, or - at worst - a new hole in your head. Don't be an arsehole.

Sausage award that looks a lot like a man's pecker weirdness

You're a world-famous chef. You've got two Michelin stars for your gourmet restaurant. So what do you do if you're Michel Roux Jr? You hand out sausage awards that look exactly like a penis, that's what.

East Devon Midweek Herald: Sausage Award!

West Briton: Sausage award!

Berwick Advertiser: Sausage Award!

Colchester Gazette: Sausage Award!

Cumbria Crack: Sausage Award!

Market Rasen Mail: Sausage Award!

Southport Visitor: Sausage Award!

And, of course, there's always one that doesn't need to glad-hand Michel Roux

RJ Balson and Son: Sausage Award!

Still, nothing will ever beat the famous glass cock golf trophy.

Toilet door weirdness

Mid-Devon Gazette: Council getting peeved at people locking toilet doors and climbing out over the top of the cubicle

This story features an insanely detailed photo gallery of the inside of public toilets in Tiverton. Niche interest, purely for the Google optimisation, I should imagine.

Haunted house weirdness

Grimsby Telegraph: Grimsby family says their house is very very very haunted

Call me a skeptic, but this comes just a couple of weeks after Most Haunted visited a very very very haunted semi-detached recently. Naaaaaaah.

Bad E-fit

Colchester Gazette: This man has done some bad things

Most of them involving make-up, it has to be said.

Don't have nightmares.

Bad E-fit

Nottingham Post: This man has done some bad things

Yeah, he's a jockey. You'll be wanting the stables.

Don't have nightmares.

Bird brain weirdness

Coventry Telegraph: Crow flies into window, leaves perfect print

Having seen this sort of thing for myself, I can confirm that birds are very, very greasy. Almost oven ready, in fact.
