A company in north London has bemoaned a chronic shortage of strippers.

Butlers with Bums, an entertainment agency that provides a high-quality service for hen nights and private parties, is desperately trying to recruit good-looking men, age between 23 and 40, to mingle with women at events.

Dan Harley, a director of Butlers with Bums, told the Barnet Times newspaper: "We have a lot of demand for our buff butlers across the UK for hen dos, birthday parties and corporate events, but the shortage has taken a toll on specific areas.

"We would definitely like to see more gym enthusiasts and fitness fads getting involved with butlering and life drawing.

"We can offer training for the right candidates to become butlers and life drawing models, you just have to have an outgoing personality and be well groomed."

A man got his eyelids tattooed while on a stag do in Benidorm, Spain.

Steven Laverty left his cousin and his friends to get the words 'what about ye' tattooed at the local parlour, but instead, the Belfast native seemingly had the words 'whata boutye' tattooed to his eyelids.

Steven, 24, told the Metro newspaper: "It was pretty much non-stop drinking from the point where we got to the airport until we got home. The lads who went are all a bunch of rockets, but I had to be the one who took things too far.

"I got a finger sleeve when I was in Las Vegas last year, and my mum warned me this time not to do anything silly. She knows what I'm like.

"When I had a few drinks in me I was telling everyone I was going to do it, but my other cousin, Ryan, talked me out of it. Then when everyone went to the beach, I just thought: 'F**k it'."

Funeral directors are clamping down on people taking selfies next to coffins.

The concept has become increasingly common in recent years, but the president of the corporation of funeral directors of Quebec, Denis Desrochers, is determined to end the craze.

He told Radio Canada: "In many funeral parlours we have very clear rules around limiting selfies. Or we tell the public that the families don't want selfies."

Denis added that despite their best efforts, people often sneak their phones into funerals and take quick snaps of themselves next to coffins.

Subsequently, the photographs end up on social media and cause further distress to grief-stricken families.

A man discovered PS11,000 worth of cocaine in his tub of Nesquik.

The customer, from Zaragoza in northeast Spain, found the 250g packet of the class-A narcotic hidden among the powder, which is used to make flavoured milkshakes.

The unnamed man called the police, who subsequently confirmed the substance as cocaine and opened an investigation into the situation.

The tub was slightly open when the customer got his tub home, despite the Nesquik having been intact when it left the factory.

As a result, the suspicion is that the tub was tampered with by someone at the supermarket where it was sold.
