Greetings fellow Bizarros:
A Chinese martial artist shared video of he and his students taking repeated blows to the groin as means of promoting his unusual form of kung fu.
Master Wei Yaobin, known as the "Iron Crotch Kung Fu Master," appeared in a video alongside some of his students taking strong kicks to the groin, as well as being hit in the privates with objects including bricks and a battering ram.
Wei claims his form of kung fu can help men overcome erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation.
The master said he previously only taught his form of kung fu, which he has been practicing for 10 years in the city of Luoyang, to family members, but he is now seeking to make his "Iron Crotch" methods more widespread.
"We want it to be more popular and accepted by public," Wei told AsiaOne.
He should try getting shot in the groin a few times and see how he compares to any random philanderer from Arizona.

*-- The Exotic Mississippi Tree-Climbing Dogs --*
Ok, if there is one thing dogs to NOT do, it is climb trees. That is why it seems odd that this Mississippi man would climb a tree to look for his lost dog. Odder still is the fact that he did it naked, but then again who knows what is normal in Mississippi. The Union County Sheriff's Office said that Shane Treadaway was looking for his lost dog when he climbed on top of a tree. At some point, Treadaway fell and ended up hanging upside down from the tree. Police do not know how Treadaway lost all his clothes. After four hours of hanging from the tree, Treadaway's girlfriend began looking for her lost boyfriend. She was shocked to find him hanging upside down from the tree. Treadaway was taken to the Tupelo hospital. Police are still investigating the incident.
*-------------- What In The Hell? --------------*
An Arizona woman who suspected her boyfriend was having an affair shot him seven times while he slept at a Scottsdale home, according to a court document. Miraculously, the man survived. The victim said he woke up believing he had heard fireworks before feeling excruciating pain and realizing he had been shot. He was rushed to the hospital with a gunshot wound to his penis, two gunshot wounds to his scrotum and gunshot wounds to his neck, upper back and left thigh. Della Flores, 53, was arrested and booked into jail on one count of first-degree attempted murder and one count of aggravated assault. On the plus side, he's now single again.

LEWIS; The water guns I've seen are plastic replicas of revolvers and automatic handguns; however they're transparent light color-tinted plastic. However I imagine if a robber spray-painted one of those water pistols with black paint it would look like like real thing and could easily fool a bank teller or store clerk. Whoops! Don't want to give potential crooks any ideas. -R.S.
[A squirt gun would've worked, but she didn't have to fill it! I'll be impressed if anybody can tell me what movie that comes from!]
Lewis, the cops probably saved the sword-wielder's life by showing up. He's in Florida where you don't take a sword to a gun fight - it was only a matter of time.
[I think in Florida 'sword' is about fourth or fifth down on the list of lethality; below 'gators, moonshine and the heat, and right above the mosquitoes.]
At least that bank robber in Texas can't be charged with assault with a deadly weapon. Depending on what the squirt gun was filled with, of course. lol
