Weird World Wednesday

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No it's ...

A giant penis!

This firecracker display supposedly held in Scotland on Bonfire Night gave new meaning to the term 'happy ending.'

Talk about a big banger!

However, despite the phallic fireworks show being reported in various newspapers around the globe, there is some doubt about it's validity.

If it really happened, some pyrotechnic experts would be standing proud right about now, wouldn't you say?

And in other news from around the world, an Indonesian spa is offered stressed out customers the chance to 'relax' by letting a couple of snakes squirm on their back.

Apparently the adrenalin sparked by fear, and the movement of several pythons pummelling your muscles can send a person into a sense of marvellous relaxation. (Or maybe it's just relief that you're still alive?)

The weirdest fact about this idea, is that it isn't new! No, snake massage has been done for ages at spas in Israel and Russia, where snakes are allowed to roam the head and face as well, apparently exerting soothing pressures on the body.

If you're not up for a snake rub, the enterprising proprietor of an Israeli spa obligingly places rats and mice on patrons' feet to give them a pleasant massaging effect.

I could have posted photos and videos as well, but if you've got a snake phobia like me, you would Freak The Hell Out and I wouldn't want that to happen.

You cannot make this shit up!

I'll pass on the rodent and the snake massages thanks. Just in case you were thinking you'd send me a voucher for one for Christmas.

The fireworks display was inspired. Still wondering if I should share this with my son on Facebook.

Hmmm, I LIVE on adrenaline and I can tell you for a fact that ANYTHING touching me in the fight or flight stage will have its neck wrung.

I guess that is kind of relaxing. The proprioceptive action...

I loved hearing that everyone watching the giant penis light up the sky thought it was the most hysterically fun thing ever. Mass humour is a beautiful thing. x
