Spotter's Badge: Andrew

Frogs doing The Thingy weirdness

Great Yarmouth Mercury: RSPCA inspector called over concerns for frogs at a model village

Frogs found to be perfectly well, getting it on froggy style.

Forgot to read the small print on his ticket to the Outdoor Shagathon Festival weirdness

Exeter Express and Echo: Devon man takes swingers festival to court after they refused to honour his Gentlemen's Earlybird Ticket

I know what you're thinking. There's no way on God's green Earth that he's 49 years old. But accounting does that to you. I've seen it with my own eyes.

Spotter's Badge: Nathan, and not Charlotte. Also Creepyteath

Town crier weirdness
