Greetings fellow Bizarros:

Last ChanceWhen you go fishing there is always an element of surprise. Are you going to catch the 'big one' this time? Or just an old boot or inner tube. That is the kind of excitement that drags thousands of thrill-seekers to their local lakes and rivers with their rods in one hand and coolers full of beer in the other.

But one fisherman in New Zealand hooked a lot more than he ever expected recently when he cast his line at a beach in a public park located in the Bay of Plenty region of the North Island. In fact, his 'catch' impacted the lives of several people.

Gus Hutt was checking his lines early in the morning when he saw what he thought was a doll in the ocean.

"His face looked like porcelain with his short hair wetted down," Mr. Hutt told the local news. "But then he let out a little squeak and I thought, 'Oh God, this is a baby and it's alive'. He was floating at a steady pace with a rip in the water. If I hadn't been there, or if I had just been a minute later I wouldn't have seen him."

Hutt said his wife Sue ran to the park manager, who directed her to the only visitors who had a baby.

"She ran to the tent and just shook it and asked, 'where's your baby - we just pulled one from the sea' - and the mother just screamed," Hutt said.

The parents said the baby, named Malachi, had pulled up the zipper of their tent while they were sleeping and crawled under the flap before heading to the beach.

Emergency services treated the boy and then took him to a nearby hospital. Mr. Hutt said the parents later thanked him and Malachi seemed perfectly happy.

Bizarrely,
Lewis

Delta Apologizes After Passenger Sits in Poop

These emotional support animals are getting really comfortable on flights. Delta Air Lines issued an apology after a Michigan man said he boarded a flight in Atlanta and sat in dog poop. Matthew Meehan said he boarded a flight from Atlanta to Miami and he was already sitting down when he discovered there were dog feces all over the chair and floor. "Actual feces and it was all over me. I sat in it and it was on the seat, on the floor, the seat in front. And I was literally in it," Meehan said. Meehan said he and the passenger sitting next to him were offered very little help with the situation. "I have no idea why I wasn't offered something from the bio hazard kit to clean myself up with. Instead I was handed two paper towels and one of those miniature bottles of Bombay Sapphire, a bottle of gin to clean myself with," Meehan said. [That's just a waste of good gin.] Delta addressed in the incident in a statement. "The safety and health of our customers and employees is our top priority, and we are conducting a full investigation while following up with the right teams to prevent this from happening again. Upon landing in Miami, the aircraft was taken out of service to be deep cleaned and disinfected," the statement said.

LEWIS; Of all of the foods I've never tasted but would like to try someday human flesh is not on the list. FGS if that restaurant owner wanted to dispose of the body of someone he killed he could've fed the meat to dogs. Oh wait. In Bangkok dogs are edible meat themselves, right? -R.S.


As a long-time vegetarian, the story about the guy who served human flesh in a vegetarian restaurant is far more disgusting than getting showered with human teeth!


That story about what the laborers found when they demolished the old dentist's office; are you sure that was the whole tooth?
