Where to find weird and wacky news from around the world

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 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.


Off-kilter News Stories


I'll be adding to this hub as I find more wacky and weird news resources so check back for updates or leave me a comment if you know if a good one! :)

      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.

      I've been a fan of "weird news" for many years, so this was a treasure trove of possibilities for me. Thanks!
