black59-year old John Paul Davis accused his wife, 56-year old Latoyah Johnson, of taking advantage of his handicap to “dishonestly and fraudulently make him believe that she was Caucasian”.

He claims that she knew that he would never have accepted to marry her if he “had known that she was black”, and consciously hid her origins from him for more than three decades.

Ms Johnson refutes her husband’s allegations of lying an abusing his confidence, saying that she made no effort to hide her skin color, and that she thought he had been aware of it during a those years.

Although Mr Davis’ allegations are unlikely to have any effect on the results of the divorce procedure, they have already generated a lot of reaction, both from the audience inside the courthouse and on the social media.

Some people simply noted that the couple, visibly had some communication problems, while others openly sided with Ms Johnson, calling her husband a “moron”, a “racist pig”, and many other colorful names.

This controversial case is scheduled to appear in court again on April 25, unless the parties reach an improbable agreement before that date.

potResidents of a Pennsylvania neighborhood called attention to a large pothole in their street by filling it with a Christmas tree.

Marietta Spak said she was going through the Christmas decorations in the attic of her Wilkes-Barre home when she found a faux-fir that seemed like a perfect fit for her neighborhood’s problematic pothole.

“I was upstairs in the attic and was looking for more Christmas decorations and thought that would look nice in the hole,” Spak told WNEP-TV.

Spak said she wanted to help drivers avoid the hole, which she said has been getting worse in recent days.

“It can cause so many problems with these holes. That’s not just a pothole. That’s sinkage, and it’s starting to spider web,” Spak said.

Photos of the festive pothole went viral on social media and the city Department of Public Works said it is scheduled to be fixed this week.

uberA tourist visiting Florida said his Uber Eats order came with an unwanted side — a pair of soiled underwear.

The man, identified only as Leo, said he was visiting Miami for Art Basel when he placed an Uber Eats order for food from a local Japanese restaurant.

Leo said his driver left in a hurry after he picked up his food outside the hotel.

“I grabbed the food and right when I got the food she took off running and I was like, ‘That was kind of odd,’” Leo told WPLG-TV.

He said the driver gave him a plastic bag that contained the paper bag of his food and a cloth item.

“I thought this, when I was pulling it out, this sure is a fancy napkin,” Leo said.

The man said he quickly discovered the item was a pair of thigh-length underwear stained with what appeared to be feces.

“Disgusting, unhealthful, it’s potentially deadly,” Leo said. “What do you do if you find this in your food?”

Uber said Leo was given a refund and the incident is under investigation.

“What’s been reported is very concerning. We are reviewing this order and reaching out to all parties involved to help understand what may have occurred. The courier has been removed from the app pending investigation,” Uber said in a statement.

Leo said the incident has also been reported to Bal Harbor police.

This Chinese city is feeding garbage to a billion cockroaches to combat waste

roachesIn the near pitch-dark, you can hear them before you see them – millions of cockroaches scuttling and fluttering across stacks of wooden boards as they devour food scraps by the tonne in a novel form of urban waste disposal.

The air is warm and humid – just as cockroaches like it – to ensure the colonies keep their health and voracious appetites.

Expanding Chinese cities are generating more food waste than they can accommodate in landfills, and cockroaches could be a way to get rid of hills of food scraps, providing nutritious food for livestock when the bugs eventually die and, some say, cures for stomach illness and beauty treatments.

On the outskirts of Jinan, capital of eastern Shandong province, a billion cockroaches are being fed with 50 tonnes of kitchen waste a day – the equivalent in weight to seven adult elephants.

The waste arrives before daybreak at the plant run by Shandong Qiaobin Agricultural Technology Co, where it is fed through pipes to cockroaches in their cells.

Shandong Qiaobin plans to set up three more such plants next year, aiming to process a third of the kitchen waste produced by Jinan, home to about seven million people.

A nationwide ban on using food waste as pig feed due to African swine fever outbreaks is also spurring the growth of the cockroach industry.

“Cockroaches are a bio-technological pathway for the converting and processing of kitchen waste,” said Liu Yusheng, president of Shandong Insect Industry Association.

Cockroaches are also a good source of protein for pigs and other livestock. “It’s like turning trash into resources,” said Shandong Qiaobin chairwoman Li Hongyi.

Woman who was married to ghost of 300-year-old pirate issues warning after split

pirateA woman who married the ghost of a pirate has revealed she has split from her 300-year-old husband and has issued a warning.

Irish Jack Sparrow impersonator Amanda Sparrow Large, 46, made headlines when she was legally married to the Haitian pirate by a shaman priest.

Amanda said earlier this year she’d found her soulmate in the pirate from the 1700s, who was executed for thieving on the high seas.

They tied the knot in a boat off the Irish coast in international waters, the Irish Mirror reports.

Posting on social media she said: “So I feel it’s time to let everyone know that my marriage is over.

“I will explain all in due course but for now all I want to say is be VERY careful when dabbling in spirituality, it’s not something to mess with…”

Pirates Of The Caribbean superfan Amanda shelled out €6,000 changing her name and look and worked for a time as a Jack Sparrow impersonator.

She had her name changed by deed poll from Amanda Large and had replica tattoos, dreadlocks and gold teeth fitted to look like the character played by Johnny Depp.

Amanda made headlines around the world after meeting her ghost Jack in 2014 who she said appeared beside her when she lay in bed.

She said he looked like the Pirates of the Caribbean character, adding: “He is dark-skinned and has jet-black hair, so he tells me.

“I told him I wasn’t really cool with having casual sex with a spirit and I wanted us to make a proper commitment to each other.

“I wanted the big traditional wedding with the white dress. It was very important to me.”

elvisKeep your blue suede shoes behind the curb: the central German town where Elvis Presley was stationed as a U.S. soldier in the 1950s has installed three pedestrian lights with images of the American rock icon.

The red shows an image of the singer striking a pose at a microphone and the green depicts his trademarked hip swivel dance.

They went online this week in the town of Friedberg, where Elvis, who died in 1977, was stationed at the U.S. Army’s Ray Barracks from October 1958 to March 1960. He lived in nearby Bad Nauheim.

Friedberg, north of Frankfurt, already has an “Elvis Presley Platz” — Elvis Presley Square — and decided to add the three lights as an added attraction for the many Elvis fans who already make the pilgrimage to the town.

uranusThe Uranus Examiner, a small Missouri newspaper whose name inspired chuckles and groans when it launched a few months ago, is closing.

The paper’s editors announced the end of publication Friday, after publishing just five editions since September.

In statements posted on Facebook, Managing Editor Natalie Sanders and Louie Keen, the paper’s owner and publisher, blamed a judgmental “Fuddy Duddy Squad” for the Examiner’s demise.

They said many people supported the paper but banks declined to loan it money and many businesses wouldn’t advertise in it, in part because Keen once owned a strip club.

Uranus is an unincorporated tourist spot along historic Route 66 and is known for quirky attractions, including a fudge shop and the world’s largest belt buckle.

The decision leaves Pulaski County with no newspaper.

House from ‘A Christmas Story’ lets fans stay the night

storyThe owner of the home featured in the film A Christmas Story is allowing fans to spend the night in the iconic house — for a price.

Brian Jones, 42, a Florida resident, said he used to sell replica leg lamps from the 1983 film and he ended up buying the Cleveland home used for exterior shots when it was posted on eBay in 2004.

“I just thought, ‘That is the opportunity of a lifetime right there. That won’t come along twice,’” Jones told WGN-TV.

Jones said she spent years making the inside of the house look like the interior from the film, which was mostly shot on a sound stage.

“What I’ve tried to do is basically create the experience when you’re coming here, it feels like their house,” Jones said.

Jones is now allowing fans to pay to spend the night in the home, but the honor costs up to $3,000 during the busy Christmas season. He said the stays will be cheaper during less busy times of the year.

“You can sit on the couch, grab the leg lamp, crawl under the sink, do whatever. You get to basically play in the house,” he said.
