What's Scarier Than a Plane Full of Snakes?

Those ever efficient Germans have figured out a way to ensure that passengers aren't hiding plastic forks under their clothes...they let them take them off! A German travel company is trying out a new day trip itinerary aimed at nudist patrons. For a mere $735, you and your nudey friends can take a day trip from Germany to the Baltic Sea Resort of Usedom.

Passengers will be required to wear clothes onto the plane and put them back on before the plane lands, but in the air, anything goes. The owner of the travel company acknowledged that the idea might sound crazy to some but he noted that there is an available niche market that could be tapped into. He did clarify, "I don't want people to get the wrong idea. It's not that we're starting a swinger club in mid-air or something like that. We're a perfectly normal holiday company." Germany, the land of entrepreneurs and cream cheese pizza.

Hey! Spain Has One Too!

So in America we might be stuck with the judge who sued the dry cleaners and forced them out of business for allegedly losing his pants, but at least we aren't Spain! In Spain, they have a motorist who is suing the family of the 17-year old bicyclist he killed in hopes of seeking repayment for damage the crash caused to his Audi A8.

While the man, Tomas Delgado, hasn't been charged with a crime, his insurance company did pay the boy's family 33,000 euros after acknowledging that Delgado's "excessive" speed may have contributed to the accident.

When asked why he was suing the family for the equivalent of $29,300 Delgado told a reporter, "I'm also a victim in all of this, you can't fix the lad's problems, but you can fix mine."

We Haven't Been Kidnapped

In case you were worried (which I don't think you were since the cops haven't shown up at our houses yet), Lulu bought a house and has been moving in (very slowly) and Scooter got a new job at a restaurant that doesn't have any customers so he has to work 24 hours a day. We will be back soon, we promise.
