Train in India loses way

KANPUR: Passengers of a Bihar-bound train had a shock when their train lost its way and rather proceeding to Lucknow headed towards Allahabad, so
urces said.

The train — Pooja special 4006 — had to leave for Lucknow from Kanpur Central station at 8 am on Sunday, but by mistake the driver headed towards Allahabad.

When the passengers realised that the train was moving on a wrong route, they made a hue and cry about it. The driver then stopped the train at Sarsaul, 15 km from here, the sources added.

The driver was asked to bring the train back to Kanpur. The train, which got delayed by three hours due to the gaffe, left for Darbhanga via Lucknow after it reached the station here.

Senior officers have reached the spot and the matter is being investigated, Deputy Chief Traffic Manager, Kanpur Central Station, Manoj Kumar said.

Bob Marley interview bid embarrasses BBC

BBC Three, one of the public broadcaster’s digital TV channels, sent an email to the Bob Marley Foundation saying it wanted to do a documentary about his hit song No Woman No Cry.

It said the project would involve Marley – who died of cancer in May 1981 at the age of 36 – “spending one or two days with us”, and that “it would only work with some participation from Bob Marley himself”.

In a statement, the BBC said: “We are obviously very embarrassed that we didn’t realise that the letter to the Marley Foundation did not acknowledge that Mr Marley is no longer with us.”

Marley would have been 60 last February 6, a date that was celebrated with great fanfare by his legion of fans worldwide.

A BBC press officer, contacted by AFP in London on Friday, confirmed that the gaffe was not an April Fool’s joke.

Man says he shot cow after mistaking it for coyote

COLFAX TOWNSHIP, Mich. – A man says he shot and killed a neighbour’s cow after mistaking it for a coyote.

Authorities and the cow’s owner are skeptical. The undersheriff in northern Michigan’s Benzie County says he doesn’t see how anyone could confuse a 635-kilogram, pregnant cow with a coyote, which typically weighs about 13 kilograms.

Shooting coyotes is illegal during deer-shooting season and authorities asked the county prosecutor to bring charges.

School stripper shocks birthday boy

A schoolboy was given an unexpected surprise for his 16th birthday when a stripper turned up in his drama class.

The stripper – dressed as a policewoman – had been booked by the boy’s mother, who had apparently asked for a “gorilla” to mark her son’s big day.

On arriving halfway through the lesson, the stripper walked the unnamed boy around the class on all fours like a dog.

To the soundtrack of Britney Spears, she then spanked him 16 times – once for each year – before stripping down to her bra and knickers.

It was only when she asked the schoolboy to rub cream on her that the shocked teacher called a halt to the show. The boy’s mother reportedly told the school the incident was the result of a booking error.

Judge Booted for Flipping Coin to Decide

A judge who ordered a woman to drop her pants and decided a custody dispute by flipping a coin was removed from the bench by the Virginia Supreme Court on Friday. The decision against Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court Judge James Michael Shull of Gate City was unanimous.

“Unless our citizens can trust that judges will fairly resolve the disputes brought before our courts, and treat all litigants with dignity, our courts will lose the public’s respect and confidence upon which our legal system depends,” Justice Barbara Milano Keenan wrote.

According to the court, Shull admitted tossing a coin to determine which parent would have visitation with a child on Christmas. Shull said he was trying to encourage the parents to decide the issue themselves but later acknowledged that he was wrong.

Aussie barmaid fined for crushing cans with bare breasts

PERTH, Australia (AFP) – An Australian barmaid who entertained patrons by crushing beer cans between her bare breasts and hanging spoons off her nipples has been fined, police said Wednesday.

Luana De Faveri, 31, was fined 1,000 dollars (900 US dollars) in the Mandurah Magistrates Court in Western Australia after pleading guilty to two breaches of the Liquor Control Act.

Another barmaid who helped hang spoons on De Faveri’s nipples, Tracey Leslie, 43, was fined 500 dollars while the bar manager was fined 1,000 dollars for failing to stop the pair, police said in a statement.

“She was alleged to have also crushed beer cans between her breasts during one of the offences” at the Premier Hotel in Pinjarra, about 80 kilometres (50 miles) south of Perth in June, police said.

The fines “send a clear message to all licensees in Peel that we will not tolerate this type of behaviour in our licensed premises,” said Superintendent David Parkinson of the Peel Police District.
