Pop goes the…racoon!
It’s evidently not just humans who love popping bubble wrap.
A raccoon was filmed working its way meticulously through the protective material – and the video has gone viral on YouTube!
One user wrote: “I never thought I could have so much in common with a raccoon…” and another posted: “Now I can really tell we take after animals.”
Well burger me, it’s a camel!
Comedian Hamad al-Amari turned heads in the Gulf state of Qatar – by turning up at a Burger King drive-thru on his camel.
Al-Amari had been planning to perform the stunt for two years and the fact that it has become YouTube’s latest viral video means that he won’t be getting the hump any time soon.
“I just finally got the chance to do it. I knew that this was something the world would laugh at, not just Qataris or people living in Qatar,” he said.
Bewildered employees at the fast-food chain called their manager over to witness the bizarre experience, who saw the funny side and posed for pictures with the camel, orangenews.com reports.
Police arrived at the scene soon after.
No flies on her
A retired Chinese woman who dedicates her life to swatting flies estimates that she kills up to 1,000 a day.
Ruan tang, 80, has been on pest control duty for the last 14 years and spends eight hours every day catching flies in the Changmingsixiang Community in Hangzhou City, according to the website orangenews.com
She said: “I had retired and was looking around for something to do to help the community and prove useful, and I noticed how much flies were troubling people in the summer. I decided that killing flies was the best way for me to be useful – and I’ve been doing it now every day since.”
