WEIRD, BIZARRE and UNUSUAL (.1059)



 FOR TRUE PET LOVERS
A company in Brisbane, Australia, Pets Eternal, suggests owners of just deceased animals keep a whisker, lock of hair or tooth, to be made into jewelry or mixed with ink to make a tattoo. While the Houston based space-flight group named Celestis, which launched the ashes of "Star Trek" creator Gene Roddenberry into orbit, will soon offer to shoot pets' remains into orbit ($995), or even to the moon ($12,000).

CAMEL RELAXES ON CORPSE
Richard Mileski of Chicago moved to Mexico and founded an animal sanctuary on his ranch in Tulum, Yucatan, Southern Mexico. On October 13, 2014, a camel in the refuge kicked and bit him to death, before sitting down on his body. Both a rope and a pickup truck were required to pull and re-erect this lounging camel. The camel may have been angry because he wasn’t given his daily soft drink. (The AP, 10-16-14)
GOT SCREWED WITHOUT SEX
Trisha Jones was worshiped by a 63-year-old Maryland businessman, though they’d never met; all thanks to a computer dating website. To prove love, this man even sent $200,000 to his heart-throb in Dallas. Problem was, “she” was 24-year-old Oluwaseun Oyesanya, a Nigerian man.  (The AP, 10-16-14)
