The men are the clear winners this week as far as being in the "weird" news stories. As I scouted about the Internet looking for "all that is odd", it quickly became evident that the ladies were somewhat sparse. Now, to be clear, I am not saying that the woman aren't as odd as the men but they seem to be in hiding this week.
A Man With a Plan
Ninety-six year old Ramjit Raghay, has reportedly has become the oldest man to father a child...again. This is the 2nd son born to Ramjit and his wife in recent years. On the event of the birth of his first son, who is now 2, he broke the world's record for being the oldest father. With the birth of his 2nd son, he broke his own record.

Ramajit and his 52 year old wife, Shakuntala Devi gave birth to a healthy baby boy on October 5th according to the Times of India.
According to Ramajit, he didn't use performance enhancers, he just prayed to God to complete his family.
Living well past the average life expectancy of men in India which is 63.2 years, he credits his longevity to eating lots of butter, milk, green vegetables, and almonds. He also, said that he was mostly (mostly...does that even count?) celibate prior to meeting Devi 10 years ago. He did say that he doesn't plan on having more children.
This guy has some powerful prayers. Being a new daddy at 96....or is that an old daddy at 96...is quite a record for sure. I did find it interesting that all the reports about this was in deference to Ramajit breaking a world record and his wife got barely a nod. I suspect her job in this might of been the more difficult of the two. Maybe having a baby at 52 doesn't break any world records but doesn't she, at least, deserve an "honorable mention". Fist- bump to you Shakuntala Devi.
A Romantic Dinner for Two in Full View
I did find one story that had both a man and a woman but the man seemed to be the one that took over the bulk of the story. In most of the reports the woman was never mentioned.
A couple who decided to have sex atop an outdoor table at a Florida restaurant--in full view of families dining nearby--avoided criminal charges because witnesses declined Monday night to provide statements to police.

The manager of Paddy Murphy's, an Orlando eatery, summoned cops after he "was notified by several patrons that a couple was having sex on a table in view of minor children," according to an Orlando Police Department report.
Tom Murphy told officers that he approached the couple early Monday evening and told them to stop. But the man, identified by cops as Jeremie Calo, responded, "She can't get up at this time." Calo, 32, was referring to his unidentified companion. (She was later identified as Tiffani Lynn Barganier...and I wouldn't want you to be left out of all this publicity...notoriety...insanity.)
Murphy told police that he directed Calo to "Compose yourself, pay your tab or I'll call the police." Calo, however, signed his check "NO" and then scuffled with a restaurant employee when he tried to leave without paying.
Murphy and the worker restrained Calo until the arrival of cops, who arrested Calo for defrauding an innkeeper. Not paying the $101.00 tab, is what the charges stem from. No charges for having sex on the table as none of the witnesses chose to make statements.
Interesting that you can get in trouble for not paying your tab but you don't get in trouble for having sex on the table in front of the other patrons. Perhaps, the other diners just figured it was a dinner and a show.
Men, Don't Be Naive
A German drinks firm has launched a range of spirits which has been poured over the breasts of a naked model prior to bottling. Really!
G-Spirits sells bottles of rum, whisky and vodka which has been poured over the boobs of voluptuous models before being collected in a special glass basin.
It's claimed the odd process adds to the flavour of the drinks, though the firm are keen to stress they conform to food and hygiene requirements. Medical personnel are also present to verify everything is in order.
A spokesperson for G-Spirits said: "To create the perfect taste we let every single drop of our spirits run over the breasts of a special woman, one whose characteristics we saw reflected in the liquor.
This is the ad to entice you to buy their booby booze:
But...how do you know if the person really looks like this? I suppose, it is possible if you are the kind of person that wants liquor that has been poured over naked chests, maybe it wouldn't matter if the chest looked more like this.
AND what exactly does the "G" in G-Spirits stand for???? Gullible...perhaps?
Naked Men Causing Controversy
The Leopold Museum, a institution that displays modern art in Vienna, Austria is due to open an exhibit on October 19th called Nackte Manner. (Naked Men)
The advertising campaign leading up to the big event, however, has hit a snag. The locals don't like the advertising surrounding the upcoming event.
According to the Daily Mail, the museum's decision to advertise the show with giant versions of some of the works has not been received too well.
One of the artworks by Austrian Photographer, Isle Haider, called Mr. Big placed outside the museum has been drawing a lot of attention as it depicts a nude man reclining on one elbow.
|Do you see something wrong in this picture?|
Since the uproar began the museum covered his private parts.
They cited it was for "safety reasons".
According to a statement on the museum web site, the exhibition offers a revolutionary perspective on the human body. It goes on to say that the show is long overdue on the diverse and changing depictions of naked men.
The exhibition, featuring more than 300 images will run until January 28 2013.
Without trying to reduce myself to using humor that would/should belong to a 12 year old, let me just point out that the museum is the one that named the huge poster "Mr. Big". I, also didn't have a spokesman by the name of Pokorny (Poke Horny) say the the exhibit was long overdue.
