hootINVERNESS, Scotland – A popular Scottish pub known for its traditional atmosphere announced its male bar staff are switching from kilts to pants after repeated harassment from female patrons.

Kit Fraser, owner of the Hootananny pub in Inverness, said male workers used to wear kilts as part of the pub’s traditional theme, which also includes frequent live performances of traditional Scottish music.

But they are now donning pants to protect them from women who would lift their kilts to check whether they were “true Scotsmen.”

“You get large groups of drinking women circling around when you are collecting glasses and asking whether you are true Scotsman — and they find out for themselves,” Iain Howie, assistant manager of Hootananny, told the Inverness Courier.  More

normaConnecticut – An obituary published in Saturday’s Connecticut Post, claiming the cause of an 83-year-old Fairfield woman’s death was hypothermia after her dog ate her socks and boots at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro, was just a continuation of her pranks from the afterlife.

According to the obituary, Norma R. Brewer died while attempting to climb the 19,341-foot mountain, Africa’s tallest peak.

Brewer, the death notice read, never realized her life goal of reaching the summit, but made it to the base camp where she died in the company of her daughter, her cats and dog “Mia,” which all joined the trek at the last minute.

“There is suspicion that Mrs. Brewer died from hypothermia, after Mia ate Mrs. Brewer’s warm winter boots and socks,” read the death notice.  More

interChina – In a desperate attempt to cure himself of his internet addiction, a Chinese teenager simply chopped off his own left hand. The 19-year-old, from the city of Nantong, in Jiangsu province, took the drastic measure last week.

“We cannot accept what has happened,” said the kid’s mother, who refused to be identified. “It was completely out of the blue. He was a smart boy.” She had gone to her son’s bedroom at 11pm last Wednesday, only to find him missing from his bed. Instead, she found a handwritten note that said: “Mum, I have gone to the hospital for a while. Don’t worry, I will definitely come back this evening.”

In the meantime, the boy had snuck out of the house with a kitchen knife. Once safely out of sight, he severed his left hand at the wrist. He then called a taxi to take him to a nearby Emergency Room, leaving the hand lying on the ground.  More

bwUSA – More heroic tales of Brian Williams‘ adventures in journalism are being questioned.

The NBC news anchor, who apologized Wednesday for telling a false story about taking fire in a helicopter while covering Iraq, is being called out for possibly lying about his experience covering Hurricane Katrina, according to a report.

Williams claimed to have gotten dysentery from drinking flood water and seeing dead bodies float past his hotel in the New Orleans French Quarter while covering Hurricane Katrina.

However the The New Orleans Advocate noted that the French Quarter was not flooded and quoted a local health expert who did not recall anyone getting such a stomach ailment.  More

brianArmy flight crews said Thursday that NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, in his apology over a false Iraq War story he had told for more than a decade, left out key facts in his admission, the latest development in an embarrassing episode for the face of the news network.

On Wednesday, Williams, 55, admitted that he was not aboard a helicopter that was hit and forced down during the invasion of Iraq on March 24, 2003, instead claiming that he was flying in a Chinook helicopter behind the formation that took fire.

But on Thursday, Stars and Stripes, the armed forces newspaper that first broke Williams’ admission, reported that Williams was flying with a different helicopter company altogether, in a different direction, and linked to the attacked unit only by radio.  More

One woman, worried that the same tattered baseball cap he often wore wouldn’t be enough to keep him warm in the Vermont winter, knitted him a hat, Read’s attorney Laurie Rowell told CNN.

His khaki denim jacket was held together with a safety pin and his flannel shirt was so old, someone once paid for his breakfast at Friendly’s.

“The man ahead of him had paid for him,” Rowell said, “Based on what he looked like and how he dressed.”  More
