If you are planning a trip to Iceland, then you might want to check out the Icelandic Phallological Museum. It currently has the largest collection of penises in the world and has recently added a human penis to its collection. Over 200 specimens are preserved in test tubes and glass vessels whilst some larger ones are displayed like hunting trophies on the wall.

With the weather being nice recently I have been eating my fair share of burgers to make full use of the BBQ. This one, however, might be a burger too far. Claiming to be the world’s biggest burger it weighs an amazing 777lbs and has more than a million calories. The burger includes a 110lb bun, 20lbs of onions, 12lbs of pickles and 30lbs of lettuce. It was made by organisers of the Alameda County Fair in the US with parts of the burger being sold for 99 cents at the fair and proceeds going to charity. That’s what you call a burger.

article-2003733-0C8DC51400000578-284_634x572This is how two men from Kazakhstan decided to transport a vehicle from Germany. The men had somehow managed to roll the car onto its side and put it inside the van. They then supported it with mattress underneath the car and cushions around the sides. The windows of the van were covered with newspapers to hide the fact that there was a car inside but the van was pulled over when police spotted it lurching from side to side. It seems the men had planned on driving the van 2,200 from Hamburg back to Kazakhstan. The van and car were confiscated and the men ordered to return with a proper transporter before continuing their journey. It s still not clear why they decided to transport the car in this way.

This is Gator, a goose who is unusual because he wears sandals. Gator was adopted by Bob and Lauree Strouse who decided to make him sandals to protect his feet when they take him for walks. It certainly is an interesting look.

These interesting looking shoes have been created by fashion student Lisa Dillion out of a stale cheese sandwich. The heels are sculpted from a block of cheese whilst a stale sandwich is used as part of the sole. The front of the shoe is also moulded from cheddar and extra cheese has been melted to make the decorations.

If you want to learn to be mermaid then you might be interested in this article. It looks at a course being offered by a Florida waterpark which gives people the chance to do just that. Budding mermaids will be able to put on a tail and will be put through basic training exercises including underwater acrobatics. It’s and interesting idea, but not something that really grabs me.

article-1366421-0B2E36A700000578-682_468x626If you don’t like the thought of using “naked” scanners at airports then this may be the solution. It’s a range of underwear which claims to be x-ray proof so that your most private parts don’t show up on airport scanners. The range which includes pants and vests for men and women has been invented by a man called Steve Bradshaw. He claims that they are able to coat body parts whilst still allowing operators to see potentially dangerous objects such as guns, knives and explosives. They work by using a paint made from barium sulphate, aluminium, ground glass and other materials which reflects and scatters the x-rays in a particular area, diffusing the image but also allowing dangerous items to still be seen. It looks like an interesting idea but is still yet to be tested with a scanner.

Well the answer according to this article is 1,704 metres long. The noodle was created by a group of cooks in China and has recently set a new Guinness World Record for the longest handmade noodle.
