Greetings fellow Bizarros:

Caitlyn Jenner is a rank amateur compared to the scam artist in today's story, who has used his/er sexual ambiguity to not only rob his/er victim, but did it by marrying him. And it gets better.

The groom, named Mr. Wang, proposed to his 'girl'friend when she told him that she was pregnant!

The couple, who met on a dating website, had a big wedding. However, just three days after the wedding, the bride disappeared.

She took the wedding gifts and his valuables, and she vanished without a trace.

Shortly after the incident, another man called police to report that he had met a girl online and she extorted a lot of money.

Police went to an Internet cafe, where they managed to make contact with the woman and they lured her there. However, when the suspect arrived, she was dressed as a man and her identity card showed that she is 27-year-old Miao Songtao.

Police searched his home and found wigs, dresses and high heels as well as sexy underwear and cosmetics.

According to police, Miao said that he "was not sure if he liked men or women, but was quite fond of money."

He allegedly told police that in more than a year, he had managed to date 11 men and he got hundreds of thousands of RMB (Chinese currency) out of them.

Police contacted the victims, and that is when Wang learned that he was scammed into marrying a man instead of "his pregnant girlfriend."

While the story did not specify, we would have to assume Miao is what they call 'post-op'. Because if s/he isn't, then the process for getting pregnant in China is WAY different than anywhere else in the world.

Bizarrely,
Lewis

*------------ It's Not Always Gators ------------*

A Florida woman captured video of a pair of unusual backyard visitors brought on by high tide waters -- hungry manatees. Nancy Smith said in an Instagram post the two manatees first visited her St. Petersburg back yard Sunday after rain waters caused the tide to extend about a foot over the seawall, allowing the aquatic mammals to swim right up to her freshly mowed grass for a snack. Smith, who lives in the Riviera Bay area, said the manatees were "munching" for about 30 minutes. One of the visitors returned the following day for another snack of grass. "It happened again! Rain made the water rise over the seawall even more than yesterday, and a manatee just climbed up to munch on our grass! Another awesome experience. Wish you could be here to see it, too!" Smith wrote on Instagram.

*------------ The Ninja of Serpents ------------*

We should all be environmentally conscious. It is our planet, after all, and we all have to live here. But one Brazilian activist took things a bit extreme when he filmed himself walking across broken glass while holding five snakes in his mouth to raise awareness of deforestation. Arteval Duarte, an activist promoting preservation of the Amazon Rainforest, filmed himself holding the tails of five living snakes in his mouth whole walking across a trail of broken glass in the state of Para. Duarte often involves snakes in his demonstrations and calls himself 'The Ninja of Serpents.' The activist previously released a video online showing him holding the heads of four live snakes in his mouth to raise awareness of the Amazon's plight.

Hello Lewis, it looks like stealing for lottery tickets almost paid off.
[What is that saying about the only times 'almost' counts...?]


How could beer put out a fire? Beer contains alcohol, and alcohol is highly flammable. Pouring alcohol onto fire would only be adding fuel to it. Just how watered-down was this beer? I thought they only did that at cheap dive bars. -Chris
[I'm pretty sure you need a 'proof' of over 90 for alcohol to be inflammable...although it's been a long time since I drank hard liquor.]
