Where to find weird and wacky news from around the world

stranger yet...

Wacky News Resources

Ok, so I'm always a sucker for news of the strange or, 'weird' variety, and always on the lookout for new material.

It's better than reading the newspaper (though I still read it regularly), or watching news played by the media...how depressing! Television broadcasts are in desperate need of a visit from the drama llama.

Everyone could use a bit of cheering up and what better way then to laugh at ourselves by reading something out of the ordinary?

There's nothing like kung fu nuns, or a ghost trapped in a bottle. And I just knew that pushup bras were good for something...bra saves woman's life.

Here are some great resources for those of you looking for a giggle, a good laugh, an escape from the norm, or even as inspiration for fiction writing.

I write a weekly column on Associated Content called Offbeat News, and surprisingly enough I don't use any of the news sites listed, but there are so many of them.

What I do try to do is to find news items that everyone else hasn't found, which is easier said than done.

Add observeabsurd.com to the lists they have weird news. Diggs offbeat section is pretty good too.
