Not the Brightest….

Gye Gardner didn't think he would be the next to make the funniest mishap of the week.
When Mr. Gardner heard about a Darwin woman who made headlines for getting pulled over by police for a breath test wearing little but her undies, the 43-year-old had a big laugh - but wasn't expecting he would be next in line to make the paper for a mishap.
"I hit my ear on the boom of my truck and broke the headset of my phone," Mr. Gardner said.
"So I got some superglue and glued it back together - and that was ... when my boss rang."
The truck driver said he usually had the phone's headset in his ear most of the day.
"I guess I didn't think much of it when I put it back into my ear to talk to the boss.
I realized I had done something kind of stupid after having the headset in his ear for more than five minutes the adhesive had hardened - and Mr. Gardner found himself with a earpiece glued into his ear.
"Usually it's in my ear all day anyway - friends suggested to leave it in there and just plug my ear into the PowerPoint at night to charge it. But I did get a little worried and thought 'This is not good, this is really not good at all'."
Mr. Gardner said, “It crossed his mind to use his pocket knife to remove the unwanted gear from his ear.”
"I realized I didn't want to see myself going to a doctor to put my ear back on after I chopped it off.
The 43-year-old said he scraped the earpiece out of his ear with a spoon but several pieces of skin were still stuck to the headphones."Yes, it did hurt - but I guess I did hurt my pride much more than it did hurt my ear.

It's a Dikdik......

What not to use to clean your ears out

An Air India plane was grounded by anti-terror police when a passenger was found carrying matches - to clean out his ears.
The flight from New Delhi, India, to Bangkok was stranded for four hours after Rashid Rehman was found trying to carry a box of matches onto the plane.
Tightwad Rehman, 32, told police he didn't use cotton buds because he could get matches for free at bars and restaurants.
"More than a hundred passengers were stranded because of this man's filthy habit. Well at least they didn't have to sit next to him while he was doing it," said one officer.

Man in trouble over Simpson’s porn
An Ipswich man has admitted downloading graphic cartoon porn images featuring child characters from The Simpsons and The Powerpuff Girls TV shows.
The 28-year-old is now a registered sex offender and will have to report to police after pleading guilty in Ipswich District Court to having the bizarre images on his computer.
Police went to Kurt James Milner’s Leichhardt home on January 24, 2008 after receiving an anonymous tip-off about the disturbing material.
Milner told police he would co-operate but did not want to give them his computer.
But an hour-and-a-half later he phoned police and said they could now have his computer.
Officers discovered the computer would no longer turn on but a year later police forensic experts recovered 64 images of cartoon child exploitation material in the machine’s recycle bin.
The images depicted figures from The Simpsons, The Powerpuff Girls and The Incredibles in sexually explicit positions.

McDonald's wrong “It was just a slice of cheese”
A McDonald's outlet in the Netherlands was wrong to sack an employee for giving a colleague a piece of cheese on a hamburger, a court has ruled.
The waitress was fired last March after she sold a hamburger to a co-worker who then asked for cheese, which she added.
The fast-food chain argued this turned the hamburger into a cheeseburger, and so she should have charged more.
But Leeuwarden district court ruled a written warning would have been more appropriate.
McDonald's was ordered to pay the former employee more than 4,200 Euros ($5,900; £3,660) for the last five months of her contract.
