    Last year We had the one in the paper where they said Naval Island is closed to public because they changed it into a nudist beach.

    They had the huge sign on there as well as a couple of nude girls (On the front page of our local paper), stating that this weekend would be the National get together of all nudists.

    The same day as well as the next day (Saturday) I have never seen so many cars driving to Naval Island, me self included:blush:

    Yeah Leslie... check out this one:

    Michigan Shark Experiment In 1981 the Herald-News in Roscommon, Michigan reported that 3 lakes in northern Michigan had been selected to host "an in-depth study into the breeding and habits of several species of fresh-water sharks." Two thousand sharks were to be released into the lakes including blue sharks, hammerheads, and a few great whites. The experiment was designed to determine whether the sharks could survive in the cold climate of Michigan. The federal government was said to be spending $1.3 million to determine this. A representative from the National Biological Foundation was quoted as saying that there would probably be a noticeable decline in the populations of other fish in the lake because "the sharks will eat about 20 pounds of fish each per day, more as they get older." County officials were said to have protested the experiment, afraid of the hazard it would pose to fishermen and swimmers, but their complaints had been ignored by the federal government. Furthermore, fishermen had been forbidden from catching the sharks. The Herald-News received a flurry of letters in response to the announcement. :)

    here's another classic...

    Big Ben Goes Digital [​IMG]: The BBC reported that Big Ben, in order to keep up with the times, was going to be given a digital readout. The announcement received a huge response from listeners shocked and angered by the proposed change. The BBC Japanese service also announced that the clock hands would be sold to the first four listeners to contact them. One Japanese seaman in the mid-Atlantic immediately radioed in a bid.........:lol:
