WEIRD, BIZARRE and UNUSUAL (.1125)



3 LITTLE KNOWN CELEBRITY FACTS
(1) 'The Price is Right' star Drew Carey was born with 11 toes. (2) English singer, songwriter and actress Lily Allen was born with a third nipple. (3) The “Ocean’s Twelve” star Andy Garcia was born with a conjoined twin, an unformed fetus attached to his shoulder, until doctors removed it.
IT TOOK LONG ENOUGH
Lynda Alsip, of Salinas, CA, bought a used 1967 Ford Mustang in 1985, paying only $800, when she was 17. It was stolen the following year and never found ... until September 2014, when it’s owner for only 23 years tried renewing the registration, and a computer linked it back to her.

ANIMAL BIRTH CONTROL NEEDED
A BBC News report in November 2014, concerned the life of India’s sacred Hindu’s animals, such as elephants, rhesus monkeys, cobras, cows and water buffalo. As these protected critters increase in numbers they’re forced into cities where they must dodge traffic and eat garbage. Elephants live well only during religious festivals; otherwise they navigate asphalt and potholes which tear their hooves. Hindu leaders even protest the killing of hordes of rats infesting the Maharaja Yeshwantrao hospital in Indore. (http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-30057632)
