The Weirdness Index (1998 Version)

Stan Freberg here. The times, they are a changin', and by that, I mean things are getting weirder. A London trash bin was found by the Sea of Galilee. And that's not all. Be right back. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here. Things are already at least 5% weirder than they were last year; at least, that's the conclusion of "The Fortean Times," a London newspaper devoted to the study of all things bizarre.

Leading the "weirdness index" upward is the "Strange Behavior Component," says the editor, Robert Rickard. He's referring to such things as people who throw live birds into cars waiting at stop lights, and the robber who taped two cucumbers together, pretending it was a gun. Well, you know what I always say, "Use a cucumber, go to jail!"

Finally, Swedish doctors cured a deaf man by removing a 47-year old bus ticket from the man's ear. "Hee hee, eureka! I can hear!" "Good. But I'm afraid you've missed your bus."
