WEIRD, BIZARRE and UNUSUAL (.1339)



RELIGIOUS IGNORANCE
The body of Jivan Kohar, 10, was found on July 24, 2015 on the outskirts of Kudiya village in southwest Nepal. Police say local Kodai Harijan admitted committing the murder ritual with his relatives after consulting a priest, who advised him a human sacrifice would heal his ailing son. Eleven people in all, including the holy man, were arrested. (http://www.cnn.com/2015/07/27/asia/nepal-human-sacrifice/index.html)
WHISTLE TO COVER THE NOISE?
For those who suffer uncontrollable flatulence, Shreddies, the UK-based company that brought you   fart-filtering underwear, has added jeans and pajamas. They are so confident in their product, they suggest: “why not skip the underwear completely!?” (http://www.myshreddies.com/)
NO CREAMY DESSERT?
Japanese artist Mao Sugiyama had his external reproductive organs surgically removed in Tokyo to raise awareness of asexual rights. He then had his “manliness” cooked and served with mushrooms and parsley to a special group of associates. Policed tried to intervene, but found he had broken no law.
