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 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?
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.
