Sunday, April 29 in the news.....

  • A German phone thief led police right to his front door when they called the stolen mobile to say he had won some free beer and he willingly gave his address. He has been offered political asylum in Australia.

  • A Saudi tribe has held a camel beauty pageant this week. The Qahtani tribe of western Saudi Arabia has been welcoming entrants to its Mazayen al-Ibl competition, a parade of the "most beautiful camels" in the desolate desert region of Guwei'iyya, 120 km (75 miles) west of Riyadh. Americans were so disgusted by their deviant ways there are fears they might fly planes into Saudi Arabian buildings. Bin Laden has called for 'reflection and peace' as camels are 'beautiful sexual beings'.

  • Hugh Grant has been arrested and questioned by police after a photographer accused the actor of attacking him with a tub of baked beans. Not surprisingly, the photographer was one of the 15 British sailors Iran recently held.

  • A mathematical formula can now predict how the frothy head on a beer changes over time, a finding that may have a wide range of commercial uses beyond pulling the perfect pint, U.S. researchers said on Wednesday. It is the first time that maths has pulled in a crowd during the announcement at pubs across Australia.

  • Chinese tourism authorities are seeking investment to build a novel concept attraction -- the world's first "women's town," where men get punished for disobedience, an official said Thursday. It is the theme park Walt Disney would have built first if he was a communist.
