Ginger-Pride1

(PCM) Attention all Gingers!  The country of England has revealed their plan to celebrate redheads by holding their first ever Redhead Day, playfully calling the event Ginger Pride. It is currently in the planning stages and set to take place in the summer of 2016.

Ginger Pride is being organized by a pizza delivery driver named Stuart Parry, his wife, a musician and a pro-wrestler. They all feel that enough is enough with the Ginger-bashing that has picked up steam over the years and it is time for the world to finally celebrate redheads and all their fiery glory.

The organizers also say that the Ginger Pride event will not be exclusively for those with red hair, but they welcome anyone who wants to show their support for Ginger’s around the world.

You can find out more information about Ginger Pride by visiting the event page of Facebook, which has already garnered nearly 4,500 likes.

One Second To Be Added To Clocks On Tuesday, 6/30/15

Leap-second1

(PCM) 2015 marks the year that a leap second will be added to clocks around the world. It was announced by the officials at the International Earth Rotation and Reference Systems Service in Paris that the second will be added at the 23:59:59 mark on June 30, 2015. 

The last time a leap second was added to clocks was back in June of 2012. The leap second is added to clocks as a way to correct desynchronization between Universal Time (marked by Earth’s rotation) and Atomic Time (the average of about 200 atomic clocks in laboratories around the world). The leap seconds if necessary are added to the clock in either June or December.

The Title Of “World’s Ugliest Dog” Goes To A Mutt Named Quasi Modo

Quasi-Modo

(PCM) Each year the California State Fair holds a contest to discover the “World’s Ugliest Dog” and this year a mixed breed named Quasi Modo has snatched up the honor. Quasi Modo is a 10-year old pit bull/Dutch shepherd mix who suffers from a series of birth defects that make him resemble a hunch-back (hence his name). 

Quasi Modo has no real neck of sorts and his head and legs are too large for the rest of his body. In addition to the title of “World’s Ugliest Dog”, Quasi Modo’s owner also received about the $1,500 grand prize money. 

There are some that take issue with the “World’s Ugliest Dog” competition saying that it is in poor taste, however the creates claim that they are attempting to celebrate the dog’s deformities and imperfections rather than ridicule them. 

Quasi Modo’s official contest bio reads: “My appearance can be a little unsettling to some (I’ve had grown men jump on top of their cars to get away from me because they thought I was a hyena or a Tasmanian devil) but once they get to know me, I win them over with my bubbly personality.”

The overall competition consisted mostly of hairless mixed breed Chihuahua’s and silly-looking Bulldogs and Pugs, who all placed behind Quasi Modo in this year’s competition. The “World’s Ugliest Dog” competition stands behind their motto of never judging a book by its’ cover and that is is okay to be different.

Handsome Gorilla Gets Japanese Zoo-Goers Hot And Bothered

Shabani1

(PCM) Shabani, an 18-year old gorilla who resides at the Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens in Nagoya, Japan, is creating quite a stir with zoo-goers, particularly the female visitors, who have deemed him to be “too handsome”.

Many zoo-goers have taken to social media after visiting Shabani to comment on his appearance calling him a “good-looking man”. A zoo spokesperson says that Shabani’s sudden popularity has been unexpected and he has now gathered close to about 100 human, mostly female, visitors per day. He is currently at his peak physically and is a bit more buff than his contemporaries. 

However, lady fans of this chiseled fellow shouldn’t get their hopes to high, as he already has two gorilla wives within his own species, Ai and Nene. He is also the father of two little gorilla babies Kiyomasi and Annie.

 

The zoo spokesperson goes on to say that it seems like Shabani has begun to notice his sudden popularity, but definitely continues to keep it cool with the same brooding expression on his face that makes the women continue to go ape … !

New Jersey Family Forced To Flee Home After Receiving Letters From “The Watcher”

The-Watcher1

(PCM) If you are thinking that this story sounds like something straight out of a horror movie then you are not alone. A family who purchased a $1.3 million dollar home in Union City, NJ have been forced to flee their dream home after receiving some creepy and downright terrifying letters from an individual that refers to themselves as “The Watcher”. 

The family has now filed a lawsuit against the home’s previous owners, who they say failed to disclose the details about the alleged property stalker and reveal that they too had received threatening letters from “The Watcher”. 

Once the new family had settled in the home they began receiving several creepy letters in the mail from “The Watcher”. The letters said that the home had been the subject of  “The Watchers” family for decades and that “The Watcher” had “been put in charge of watching and waiting for its second coming”. 

In an even creepier turn, as more and more letters began coming in, “The Watcher” began to reference the new homeowners children saying “Have they found what’s in the wall yet?” and “I am pleased to know your names now, and the name of the young blood you have brought to me”. 

Those appear to be some definite threats against the children and the new homeowners did what anyone in their right mind and made the decision to pack up and leave their “dream home”.  “The Watchers” identity still remains a mystery to the local police and other townspeople. Despite the threatening nature of the letters under New Jersey State law they are still only considered to be a disorderly person’s crime, unless additional evidence surfaces.  

Would you pack up and leave the home?  Do you think “The Watcher is real or just someone playing an elaborate prank?  We are wondering if they checked in the walls??
