Two weird thursday
A fish and chip shop has added battered Brussels sprouts to their menu.
Terry's Traditional Fish and Chips in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, gave out 150 of the vegetable traditionally used in Christmas dinners to their customers as a treat, and it's proving to be popular.
Andrea Long, the manager of the shop, said: "I don't know what made me think of it. I just wanted to do something that was a little bit different as a novelty for Christmas. And what's more traditional at Christmas than a Brussels sprout?"
And the shop boss insisted she was stunned with the result of the battered sprouts, with just two out of the 150 customers claiming that they didn't like the flavour.
She told The Huddersfield Daily Examiner newspaper: "I've found that at first people stand there and screw their noses up. But when pushed, they'll say, 'Wow, they're lovely."
Andrea and her staff will follow up their festive menu with battered stuffing balls and pigs in blankets, later this month.
A woman called Sarah, who recently moved into a shared house, noticed things were going missing from her and her boyfriend's room and decided to set up a camera to find out what was going on.
They then discovered their housemate was using the toothbrush on his genitals.
The woman called Sarah told Nine.com.au: "I initially didn't believe my boyfriend when he called me and told me."
Sarah was furious and decided to have it out with her flatmate.
She told the publication: "I pulled out our new toothbrushes and asked, 'Why the f*** do we need these new toothbrushes?' He was bright red - like a tomato - then I just went off."
The story got weirder.
"I said we had a video of the whole thing and we knew his girlfriend was using our stuff. I said we were going to the police, moving out, telling the landlord and we asked if he had done it before. Then he said - 'I have a toothbrush obsession'. What the f***!"
