A museum has added an erect mummified penis to their exhibition.

The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities, Fine Art and Natural History, in London, bought the genitalia for PS2,500 for one year and has decided to put the phallic piece on display, the Metro Online has reported.

The preserved manhood is believed to have belonged to an 18th Century Englishman who became aroused when he was being hanged.

And other pieces in the exhibition include ancient Chinese sex toys, mummified animals, the skull of a Cyclops and a jar of the late Amy Winehouse's poop.

A ceramic artist has crafted political figures into gnomes.

Andy Field, also known as Sniglart, has revealed he makes the garden decorations in his Cornwall workshop and the leader of the Labour party, Jeremy Corbyn, has been the most popular character among his customers.

However, the former UKIP leader Nigel Farage's miniature model has also been a hit as it has featured on Wife Swap Brexit Special on Channel 4.

And the creative mastermind intends to remodel the political representative in the form of a superhero, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Police in suburban Detroit can skip barbershops as they search for a man who stole a hair growth product.

This guy is bald.

Dearborn police have security video of a bald man who is suspected of stealing Rogaine from a Walgreens store on June 22. Investigators say the man put seven boxes in a bag and dashed. He was wearing a shirt that said, "Air Force Dad."

Police Chief Ron Haddad says it's "not the most hair-raising crime," but he wants the public's help. Police say the bald man could strike again because it takes many months of consistent use to grow hair.

A man who scored what he thought was a prime parking spot in downtown St Louis said he returned from a Thursday morning trip to the gym with his fiancEe to find his car swallowed by a sinkhole.

Jordan Westerberg told the St Louis Post-Dispatch that when the couple came back to his Toyota Camry shortly before 7 a.m. and didn't see the car, they figured it had been towed.

Street workers were gathered at the parking space, a tipoff that something was amiss. That's when Westerberg, 25, found the vehicle in the gaping hole about 20 feet (6 meters) deep and 8 to 10 feet (2.5 to 3 meters) across that took up the entire southbound lane of the street, next to a vacant building expected to feature apartments, office space and retail.

No injuries were reported.

"It's pretty crazy," said Westerberg, who lives in a loft downtown. "We could've been in the car. It's a compact car. It's not like it's heavy."

It wasn't immediately clear what caused the collapse, though an eight-inch, below-ground water main at the site appeared to have been broken for some time, given the amount of erosion.
