The Caturday Report! Giant Cat Terrorizes Detroit Neighborhood

Ambling down the block a couple of weeks ago with his 1-year-old daughter perched on his shoulders, Antwaun Asberry sensed something was behind him.

He turned around and spotted a tall creature that appeared to be a cat, only a lot bigger.

"His tail is longer than my arm," Asberry, a 6-foot-5 Detroiter with a lanky build, said of the cat. "I was like, what the (expletive) ... I don't know what it is. I just want it gone."

  A photo taken by Nathan McGuire, 47, of Detroit, shows the cat to be gray with black marks.

Last Saturday, his 12-year-old ran into the house screaming after spotting the big cat, McGuire said. McGuire rushed out to find the cat, but it scampered away. A few days ago, he spotted it outside his home, its yellow eyes starting back at him.

"I've never seen a cat that big — even on TV," McGuire said.

Paul Hatley, 14, ran into the cat a few days ago while walking down Joann, where St. Raymond-Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church anchors the block.

"It wasn't normal," he said of the big cat. "It didn't run away like a normal cat. It just stared at you. ... It was scary."

Walmart Madness #100! Woman Shoots Coworker For Getting Easier Job

I've been dragging my heels on Walmart Madness #100,  but I think this is a suitable anniversary post!  :)

Walmart Never Disappoints When It Comes To Strange News!

Justine Boyd (picture) accused of shooting her Walmart coworker was upset the victim was moved to an easier job in the liquor department, court documents reveal.

“It appears to be, from all evidence I’ve seen, an isolated incident between these two regarding what looks like a dispute over positions at the Walmart,” said Scott Ceman, Winnebago County deputy district attorney.

“There’s evidence that the defendant was upset that the victim got a position in the liquor store, an easier cash register.”

The victim, Sharon Goffard, 56, of Neenah, was lying behind a counter, soaked in blood and slipping in and out of consciousness when police arrived after the shooting about 11:15 a.m. Wednesday, but responded, “Justine, Justine,” when asked who had shot her.

The Backrub Bandit! Man Breaks Into Homes, Gets Into Bed With Woman:

Boone officials have linked Julio Antonio Yanes to many more break-ins where he gets into bed with female  homeowners and offers them backrubs.

Yanez, 29, who was arrested over a similar incident on July 22, told police  during his initial arrest that he went into an apartment in Oak Street on July 17 thinking it was the home of somebody he knew.

After he was asked to leave by the owner, Yanes reportedly tried to give her  a backrub. He left after she asked him to leave a second time.

Now, Yanez has been connected to similar incidents that took place in April and June in addition to one that took place four days after he was released in  July.

One Legged Naked Man Dies After Tossing Bricks At Homes

Bath salts is a hell of a drug.

"A naked, one-legged man collapsed and died after throwing bricks and other objects at the windows of several Perdido Key homes.
Authorities say the incident happened late Monday in the neighborhood near Pensacola.

The Pensacola News-Journal reports neighbors saw 55-year-old Norbert Chabannes crawling across a yard. They told deputies he cut his arm while unsuccessfully trying to break into his next door neighbor's house. That's when he crawled across the street and threw a cinder block at a home.

An Escambia County Sheriff's deputy found him delirious in the front yard. The deputy says Chabannes collapsed while he was trying to reason with him.

Rescue crews tried to resuscitate him."


Boy Shoots Kittens With Bow And Arrows Because He Was Bored

Bow and arrow used to kill kittens: In a despicable act by a potential Ted Bundy or Jeffrey Dahmer in training, a 17-year-old from East Chicago, Indiana, is facing felony charges after killing neighborhood cats with a bow and arrow and then posing with the mutilated animals for photos.

In his confession to police, the boy told how, during the week of August 4 while waiting for school to go back, he could stand his boredom no more. He took a high-powered compound bow and went to an alley behind his house to hunt his victims for sick pleasure.

He skewered three kittens in total. At least one was shot directly through the head.

His bloodlust still not satisfied, he uploaded photos of his kills to Facebook where one concerned netizen saw them and tipped off Lake County Animal Adoption and Control Center, who informed police. Facebook has already removed the images.

Monster Truck Ice Cream Van Is Out On The Prowl!

The world's biggest ice cream van has been built by Skoda to celebrate the release of its new car the Octavia vRS. The vehicle, which weighs 5.5 tonnes, took three weeks to make. It will travel around the country serving over 6000 cones of ice cream.

" I can tell if you’re possessed by which crayons you use."

“Ex-gay” therapist Jerry Mungadze told televangelist Benny Hinn he can identify someone possessed by “demonization” based not on brain scans, but on what colors a person chose when coloring in a drawing of a brain.

“You can see demonization in people’s brains?” Hinn asked Mungadze.
“There’s a certain color someone uses that I won’t mention that tells me someone’s been demonized,” Mungadze answered, using a code phrase for gay.

Man Performed Exorcism With Penis

A self-proclaimed “ghostbuster” was arrested in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province after he charged a young woman 20,000 yuan ($3,279) to exorcise the ghosts in her vagina with his penis. 

Police arrested Huang Jianjun on August 1 after the woman, A Xin, called police one day after having sex with Huang, reported the Southern Metropolis Daily.

A Xin, a spice shop employee, consulted Huang after hearing he could advise her how to attract her boss, whom she had a crush on.

The two agreed to meet at a hotel room, where Huang asked her to strip naked and lay on the bed for an examination.

Huang then convinced A Xin to have intercourse after explaining that ghosts in her vagina are preventing her boss from falling in love with her - ghosts he could only catch with his penis. Huang explained that he had sacrificed his virginity for the exorcism.

Naked Man Hurls Didgeridoo At Police Car

He was charged with damaging the police car and discharging a missile...

 "The incident occurred between 9am and 9.30am in Ambleside Crescent, Mildura. Police were in the area responding to an unrelated fire, when the man, 30, was reported to police.

Mildura Police Sergeant Patrick Bell said police responded to reports of a shirtless man "baring his backside" at passing motorists.

Sgt Bell said when police arrived, the man proceeded to undress completely and threw the didgeridoo at the car.

"He was completely naked – not even any socks," Sgt Bell said. "He was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol, but he has mental health issues."

Snail Hatches In Little Boy's Knee

He named the snail "Turbo,"  after the snail in the movie of the same name. :)

"Paul of Aliso Viejo, California, was walking along the beach when he dinged his knee against a rock.
"We just cleaned it up, put a Band-Aid on it," his father, Ken Franklin, told CNN affiliate KCAL

"Before you know it, a couple weeks later, his knee was very swollen and somewhat infected."

A doctor told Paul's mom, Rachael, that it might be a nasty staph infection. Antibiotics helped, but there was a growing black bump underneath the skin.

Tired of waiting and certain the wound needed to be drained, the mom decided to take matters into her own hands. She squeezed it with her fingers and out it popped.

"It looked like a rock. It was a black thing," she told the station. "I put it on a paper towel and I'm like, 'That is a weird looking rock. It has swirls on it,' and I turn it over and it is a sea snail."

Forget Toilet Paper. Get Shittens - Hand Mittens For Your Pooper

From the Shittens website:

"If there's one great universal truth that we can all agree on, it's this: No one wants poop on their hands.

And yet, we laugh carelessly in the face of danger every time we take an old fashioned wet wipe to our heinies, flying completely blind in the critical poop-to-hand spatial relation.

How many times have you taken one of those substandard wet wipes to the posterior of a child, risking major contamination from that flailing poop cloth? And how many times has your dog's "number two" been a little closer to a number one "and a half", requiring a deadly grab & pull maneuver with whatever's laying around? Enough is enough!

With new Shittens, you can fully protect your hands while tending to the dirty deed."

Man Put A Fork In His Penis, Guess What Happened?

"The bizarre incident happened in Canberra when the 70-year-old came to the hospital, saying that he had lodged a fork in. The fork was 10cm long. The medical personnel might not have fallen for a practical joke but, when they did an x-ray, the claim turned out to be true.

 It was reported as 'An Unusual Urethral Foreign Body' in the International Journal of Surgery Case Report of the same name. The cutlery was made of steel and was inserted into the urethra of the man. The man confessed to have attempted the weird act on his own to gratify himself on a purely sexual level.

Interestingly, the doctors could not see the fork from outside. It was only after the x-ray that the 10cm long fork was practically visible. It is definitely a matter of medical introspection how the elderly man was able to lodge the metal body entirely inside his penis."

The Caturday Report! Shipwrecked Cats Swim To Safety

A pair of fearless felines have once and for all refuted the myth that cats are deathly afraid of water by jumping into the ocean off Oregon and swimming to safety after their owners’ tuna boat had sunk. 

When the engine of their tuna vessel exploded last week, owners Mark and Cynthia Schneider had no choice but to abandon ship and leave behind their two cats, a 1-year-old tabby named Jasper and a 4-year-old calico named Topaz. 

After being rescued by a nearby boat, they were stunned when they looked out at their sinking boat and saw Jasper on the bow. Topaz was in the ocean and eventually swam through the debris to safety on the rescue boat.

Hanging on: In this August 5, 2013 photo released by Mark Schneider, a cat named Jasper sits on top of a sinking tuna boat off of the Oregon coast about 80 miles from Newport
Hanging on: In this August 5, 2013 photo released by Mark Schneider, a cat named Jasper sits on top of a sinking tuna boat off of the Oregon coast about 80 miles from Newport

Jasper remained stranded at sea on the bow. As the boat sank deeper into the ocean, he was forced to jump in and swim toward his owners about 100 yards away. The cat made it to safety unharmed.

‘They've got pretty good survival instincts,’ Mr Schneider said.

Police Officer Surfed Child Porn In Patrol Car

A Tennessee law enforcement officer is facing child pornography charges after investigators discovered the man was using the computer in his police cruiser to search for lewd pictures of young girls.

According to a criminal complaint filed yesterday in U. S. District Court, a Greeneville Police Department officer discovered that the search history of the web browser for the computer in the patrol car he was assigned had been used to search for illicit images.

A forensic review of the computer hard drive turned up “image searches utilizing key words ‘fifth grade girls,’ ‘naked middle school girls,’ ‘young puffy nipples,’ and ‘hot high school girls naked’” revealing “thousands of pornographic images” on the computer’s hard drive and--of those--“eighty images of child pornography.”

"A man who enjoyed dressing up as a dog called called Bubblegum Husky has been arrested for having regular sex with a cat.

Guy In Apartment Below Catches Woman That Jumped From A Top Floor Window

According to the Heilongjiang Morning post and blog Shanghaiist, the unnamed woman had locked her boyfriend out of their shared apartment during an argument on August 11. Unable to get back inside, the man went to a neighbor's unit on the fourth floor and spoke to his girlfriend through an open window.

Media reports don't say whether the woman jumped or fell - but moments later she went over the ledge only to be snatched from the air by her boyfriend. A local resident captured footage of the dangling damsel with a cell phone camera.

Asshats Fear Neighbors Handicap Ramp Will Hurt Their Home Property Value

The offending,  unsightly,  property value destroying ramp pictured above

"Vincent and Heidi Giesegh say their neighbors are threatening legal action if they don't remove the ramp. They say the next door couple is worried that the ramp will hurt the value of their home. The Giesegh's say they need it for their 16 year old daughter Kirsten who has Cerebral Palsy.

"As she goes into her spastic modes, we could just tumble down the stairs and both of us could get massively hurt," said Heidi Giesegh.

The Giesegh's neighborhood doesn't have an HOA, and the family says the City of Fountain told them it was ok to install the ramp and widen their driveway for a handicap van. 11 News went next door to get the neighbor's side of the story and they told us no comment.

"It's kind of irritating," said Vincent Giesegh. "I mean we're trying to do our best to assist our daughter with her daily needs to get in and out of the house."

***SPLAT!*** City Builds Wall Across Bike Path In Middle Of Night

A man that rides his bike to work every day using the bike path says that a wall appeared overnight on it.  The wall has caused bike riders to pick up their bikes and dangerously carry them over into the bus lane,  not to mention the fact that an inattentive bike rider could slam head first into the wall:

"When questioned by Brazilian media, São Paulo Metro, the agency responsible for maintaining the bike lane, claimed that the wall was built intentionally as part of normal renovations to the existing barrier running parallel to the pathway. That, of course, makes no sense -- so after added public pressure and grumblings over the agency's incompetence, São Paulo Metro released a statement that the wall would be removed.

No apologies for putting cyclists in danger was issued, however, nor was the wall admitted to be a mistake."

Burger King Employee Takes A Nap On The Job

He finds a nice soft bed of hamburger buns on which to lay his weary head:

 Yet another fast food misconduct photo,  imagine that.

"The photo showed the part-time employee lying on several bags of wrapped burger buns, beside a disgusting-looking pail of unknown substances. There was another photo in the twitter account that showed the same employee sitting on a restaurant bin. It’s still unknown if the account was his or it was of a friend or co-employee and since it was deleted, the photos were as well. But of course in the Internet where things live forever, the photo is still making the rounds on Twitter. While reports in some international media outlets said that the employee was fired, Burger King issued a statement saying that he was issued a “severe reprimand."


The "Ball Cutter," Testicle Eating Attack Fish Invades Scandinavia!

I did a story on the Ball Cutter Pacu fish about two years ago that turned into one of my most popular posts.  You can read that one HERE

So why should swimmers beware? Pacu fish love crushing nuts with their powerful jaws and sometimes can mistake the male reproductive organs for their favorite snack.

Just how the exotic fish ended up in Scandinavian waters is a bit of a mystery, the museum said.

“Amateur aquarium owners and fish farmers are “the usual suspects” when we meet fish where they do not belong,” said the museum’s Peter Rask Moller.

Museum experts said they are going to perform a genetic examination on the Pacu found in the fisherman’s nets to learn more about the fish.

Meantime, the advice of the museum’s experts is this: “Anyone choosing to bathe in the Oresund these days had best keep their swimsuits well tied.”


Secret Taxi Driver - Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg

Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg dressed up as a taxi driver and took passengers around Oslo in an unusual election campaign stunt.

A video that his Labor Party posted on social media Sunday shows the candid camera-like moments when the passengers realize the man behind the wheel is Stoltenberg.

The prime minister says the point was to find out "what people really think. And if there's one place where people really say what they think about most things it's in the taxi."


Domino's Apologizes For Sending Wonderful Pizza

A satisfied Domino's customer took the time to post a nice compliment to the Domino's Pizza Facebook page:

“Best Pizza Ever!” wrote the customer in the caption to her photo. “Keep up the good work guys!” She even included a smiley face emoticon.

To which the Domino’s auto-apology ‘bot replies, “So sorry about that! Please share some additional information with us at and please mention reference# 1409193 so we can have this addressed.”

It’s possible that the Domino’s bot saw through all the exclamation points, smiley faces and kind words and read this as a sarcastic comment. If so, then it has a better sarcasm detector than we do."

The Mystery Of The Subway Shark Has Been Solved

"As the New York Post reports, a few kids first found the shark while taking a swim at Brooklyn’s Coney Island. It got passed around and eventually ended up beside a roller-coaster, where 31-year-old Chris Landros found it, deemed it beautiful and decided to take it home with him. But he ended up leaving it on the subway for other passengers to enjoy, he told the New York Post.

When Alicia Vicino — the mother of the children who first found the creature at the beach — saw images posted online, she confirmed that it was indeed the same shark.

Okay, so the mystery is mostly solved. It’s still unclear why the man thought it would be a good idea to leave the dead creature resting on the floor of a subway car."

The Shark Womb Raider, Dr. Lara Croft

The first ever shark C-Section birth has been preformed at Discovery Cove in Florida by Dr. Lara Croft,  womb raider:

As for the sharks, they are eating small pieces of fish and acting normally, said Denise Swider, who assisted Drs. Scott Gearhart and Lara Croft.

"The surgery was performed in a blow-up kiddy pool right next to the mother shark's tank, which allowed the surgeons to go underwater and remain mobile. Anesthesia was pumped into the water, and oxygen was pumped across the animal's gills for ventilation. As the pups came out, Discovery Cove staff put them right into adjacent holding pens.

"The shark wasn't exactly feeling hungry right after the surgery, but we always separate the pups from the mother right after birth to make sure there's absolutely no problem," Swider said.

Surgeries have been performed on sharks, and C-Sections have been performed on stingrays, but this specific surgery has never been performed on a shark, so far as Discovery Cove's scientists can tell. "

Protip! Don't Kiss A Shark On The Mouth

Diving guide Dave Marcel had been taking tourists out on Elbow Reef off Key Largo, Florida for years - allowing them to interact with the reef's wildlife including the 300-pound nurse shark.

These sharks are not usually aggressive, and love being petted.

Marcel would prove their harmlessness by kissing the sharks, and then allowing the tourists to do the same. 

Until the day one of the sharks bit back. 

The Caturday Report! Max The Shark Cat Loves Riding His Roomba

"This is Max, a 12-year-old cat dressed in a shark suit, riding on top of a Roomba vacuum.

"He loves to the ride the Roomba," Max's owner, Helen Arnold of Houston told "He does it pretty much every day. Sometimes I put it away, and if the Roomba is hidden somewhere in the corner, he just sits there and looks at me."

Max's shark impersonation is more precious than ferocious as he dons his adorable shark costume, which was actually originally intended for Arnold's pet dog.

"I do costumes for Halloween and my dog's name is Sharky, so we've been looking for a shark costume for him," Arnold, 33, explained. "But I haven't found a good shark costume for a dog, so I bought this one and it didn't fit him so we tried it on the cat."

Arnold and her husband rescued Max from behind an abandoned house as a kitten. They first discovered his love for riding the Roomba five years ago when they purchased the vacuum.

"One day he was riding it when I got home," said Arnold. "It was scary. He knows how to press the button."

The adorable "Shark Cat" YouTube video has more than 713,000 views since Arnold posted it on Aug. 5."


Here is the above mentioned Sharkcat video,  with Jaws soundtrack music added in by me for extra dramatic effect! :)

Nurse Splits Open Mans Penis By Removing Inflated Catheter

She must have really gave it a good yank!

"A man's penis split open when a Thank You Nurses employee removed a catheter from him before deflating it, the patient claims in court.

     Cruz Ramirez and his wife sued Thank You Nurses Limited in Hidalgo County Court. Cruz Ramirez claims Thank You Nurses was giving him medical care at home while he recovered from surgery.

     "Part of this care involved the removal of a catheter device from his penis," the complaint states. "Defendant's employee negligently failed to properly deflate the device before removal. As a result, when the device was removed from plaintiff's penis, he suffered grave and serious injury.

     "In effect, plaintiff's penis was split open."

Vengeful Elephants Attack Villages After One Of Their Family Gets Killed

A train near the village that was attacked ran into and killed one if the herds members about a week ago according to the article.  The elephants gathered around where the elephant was killed and were mourning their dead relative for a few days:

 "...their emotions seem tinged with anger directed at the creatures responsible -- which they appear to understand as humans.

In the days following the accident, the elephants have taken revenge on surrounding villages. Despite efforts to drive the impassioned animals away, the herd is reported to have damaged at least 10 homes in the area, including demolishing part of a schoolhouse.

Eventually, in an effort to restore order, forestry officials called upon a squad of elephant-chasers to drive the herd away using firecrackers. Nevertheless, the mourning elephants have persisted in their efforts to remain at the spot of the train-strike, compelled perhaps by a death ceremony among elephants that remains little-understood."

Shark Cat Cleans The Kitchen

Raaaarrrrgh!  Lol,  I couldn't wait until Caturday for this one.  I hear it was in honor of Shark Week.

Beware The Sharkcatnado!

Builders Of 47 Storey Skyscraper Didn't Include Elevator

The Intempo skyscraper in Benidorm, Spain—standing proud in this image—was designed to be a striking symbol of hope and prosperity, to signal to the rest of the world that the city was escaping the financial crisis. Sadly, the builders forgot to include a working elevator.

In fairness, the entire construction process has been plagued with problems, reports Ecnonomia. Initially funded by a bank called Caixa Galicia, the finances were recently taken over by Sareb – Spain’s so-called "bad bank" – when the mortgage was massively written down.

In part, that was a function of the greed surrounding the project. Initially designed to be a mere 20 storeys tall, the developers got over-excited and pushed the height way up: now it boasts 47 storeys, and will include 269 homes.

Man That Had sex With Couch Banned From Watching Porn For Life

Gerard Streator also received a five-month suspended jail sentence Monday after pleading guilty to public lewdness in Waukesha County Circuit Court.

Ryan Edwards was out jogging at 11 p.m. Sept. 3, 2012, when he spotted the 47-year-old Streator making out with the furniture.

"I saw a subject leaning over the couch facing down, and it looked like he was having sexual relations with someone," Edwards said. "I could see the male's hips thrusting up and down on the couch."

After asking Streator what he was doing, Edwards saw him jump up and run off — with his pants down — revealing that he was the only one carrying out the act.

"I concluded that he had been thrusting his pelvic area against the cushions and trying to sexually gratify himself by rubbing his penis between the two cushions," said Edwards.

Streator locked himself in his apartment, but was arrested the following day at the hotel where he worked.

Over 2.5 Million People Still Use AOL!?

Remember these?

Which amounts to 52 million dollars of easy revenue each month for these blood suckers:

"AOL released its latest quarterly report on Wednesday, in which it states that 2.583 million Americans pay for some sort of AOL service.

...some of whom get broadband or DSL service through another provider but are under the misguided notion that they have to pay AOL a fee to keep their e-mail address, or simply don’t notice that they are still being debited each month for service they don’t use.

Some AOL users say they have no other option than dial-up, as broadband is not available in their areas. Others stick with dial-up because it’s less expensive than the monthly cost of higher-speed services."

Wild Dolphin Feeds Girl Dinner :)

14-year-old British girl and self described dolphin fan Lucy Watkins, went ocean kayaking with her grandparents on July 25, when she met a locally famous dolphin named Dave.

Excited to be meeting a dolphin in the wild for the first time, Lucy splashed water and paddled about while Dave the dolphin put on a show of jumps and dives. Finding Lucy's performance to be satisfactory, Dave rewarded her with a 10-pound codfish. Lucy wasn't quite sure what Dave's intentions were at first, but after he nosed the fish over to her she decided to accept her reward. Fearing Lucy still didn't understand what to do with the fish, Dave caught another one and ate it while she watched, apparently attempting to teach the land mammal by example.

Man Locked Verizon Worker In Underground Vault

Police say the owner of a Westborough storage facility took his anger out on a Verizon worker by locking him up.

Every second counted for Mike Hathaway who was sealed in an underground vault running out of air, and police say it was no accident. The victim was trapped when another man allegedly slammed the door.

"He sounded extremely nervous right from the get go," said Westborough Police Sgt. Jonathan Kalagher. "When the hatch was closed, it didn't allow for any more oxygen to get in, so it was time sensitive to get to him."

The suspect, 71-year-old Howard Cook, owns Westboro Self Storage. Cook was apparently mad that Hathaway parked his Verizon van on his grass to access the vault to do some work.
Police say Cook not only slammed the door shut, but he also allegedly picked up huge rocks and placed them on the door.
"They're pretty large rocks that were put on top of the hatch," said Sgt. Kalagher. "There was also a ladder that was removed, which prohibited him from escaping."


Priest Busted With Prostitute In Graveyard

A high-ranking priest with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston was arrested over the weekend for soliciting a prostitute after police observed him paying for sex in a graveyard.

Coyle, according to The Boston Globe. Police followed the car to a cemetery where Coyle admitted to hiring the woman for sex, but insisted that “they hadn’t done anything yet.”

The 38-year-old woman told police that she had been paid $40 to perform sexual acts.

Man Escapes From Coffin...While Skydiving

After being dragged from a plane at about 14,500 feet up, the coffin whipped wildly from side-to-side with Martin inside. One of the two skydivers who were steadying the box was hit in the face, but everyone landed safely.

Martin, 47, said that after freeing himself, he got clear of the coffin and tracked it as it fell to the ground, just as he did when he first pulled off the stunt 25 years ago on just his 17th skydive.

The Sheboygan, Wis., man began studying the art of escape at age 6 after his father shattered his early fascination with magic by explaining the trickery behind a floating pen illusion.

The man ran to a nearby medical clinic, leaving the his arm behind.

Nurses at the clinic called 911 and an ambulance rushed the man to a hospital.

"When Justin was 5-weeks-old, he was subjected to a horrific cruelty: He was set on fire and badly burned over about a third of his body. A good Samaritan found him in Philadelphia and called authorities, who took him to an SPCA animal shelter in Pennsylvania. Things looked dire for Justin, but vets said the little guy was a voracious eater with a strong spirit. Within weeks, Justin was ready to go to a foster home."

Lukas Novy - from Brno in the Czech Republic - claims that his Pastafarian faith means he has to wear the sieve at all times.

Officials ruled that turning down the request would be a breach of the country's religious equality laws.

Novy claims to be a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, when emerged in the USA 2005 as spoof on organised religion.

Members claim to believe that an invisible alien made of spaghetti and meatballs created the universe after "drinking heavily."

But Brno City Hall spokesman Pavel Zara explained: "The application complies with the laws of the Czech Republic where headgear for religious or medical reasons is permitted if it does not hide the face."


And here is yet another guy that did it as well:
