Brazilian Man Survives Spearing Himself in the Head with a Harpoon

"It's either a tumor or a harpoon spear.  Let's run more tests just to be sure."
“Yes, I concur, doctor, that’s either a tumor or a harpoon spear. Let’s run more tests just to be sure.”

Brazilian, Bruno Coutinho, was cleaning his harpoon at home when he accidentally  speared himself through the head. The spear went into his left eye and lodged itself in the back of his cranium.   Bruno was still able to call for help, however.

When neighbors saw him they were horrified and reported that  they had only seen something like it in Brazilian movies.

Even though it took doctors ten hours to remove the spear,  they insist that Bruno’s brain function will not be anymore impeded than it already was to begin with, and that he will survive to clean his harpoon another day perhaps while watching Brazilian movies about Brazilian men accidentally spearing themselves in the head while cleaning their harpoons.

Unexploded Bomb Found in Kitchen Cupboard

"Hey guys!  Wait up!  I've got the first-aid kit!"
“Hey guys! Wait up! I’ve got the first-aid kit!”

Henry Southhall was giving a tour of the house he just bought in Porthmadog, when he opened the kitchen cupboard to find a bomb from World War II containing 16 pounds of explosives on the shelf he had been planning to keep his glasses and coffee cups on.

Bomb disposal experts rushed the bomb to a beach nearby and discharged it where they claim it left a big crater and could be heard from two miles away — as reported by one of the of the bomb disposal experts who was a real slow poke.

“I’m glad they found it when they did. I wouldn’t have wanted it going off when I was in bed upstairs.”  Southhall declared.  Who apparently has enough difficulty sleeping as it is.

Woman Eats 2500 Calories while asleep.

Bizarre news stories LInda Vernon Humor
Leslie Cusack round about 2 a.m.

Lesley Cusack is overweight not because she eats too much, but because she eats too much after she falls asleep every night.   Once Leslie goes out like a light, she goes right to the kitchen and gobbles down large amounts of food, and she doesn’t even know she’s doing it.

As Lesley is constantly telling people, she is powerless not to eat too much because of a genuine sleep related eating disorder which medical experts call  Sleep Related Eating Disorder. 

“I can only tell I’ve eaten anything by the remains in the morning.” Leslie recently swore on a stack of bibles and went on to explain,  “I tend to find opened tins of things or packets, and I’ve no idea whether I’ve eaten some of them cold or hot.”    Nor does Lesley have any idea whether she has enjoyed them.

The worst things Lesley is pretty sure she’s eaten while asleep are emulsion paint, Vaseline, cough syrup, raw potatoes and soap powder.  After exhaustively studying the situation, medical experts have suggested that perhaps Lesley should not store emulsion paint, Vaseline and cough syrup and soap powder in her refrigerator.

Giant Rodents on Steroids Being Sold as Poodles

Yup! They look exactly alike! EXACTLY!!

A man in Argentina who purchased two toy poodles at a discounted price found out, after a visit to the vet, that he had actually been sold two giant rodents who were pumped up on steroids and trimmed to look like poodles.

Experts are still trying to ascertain how somebody could be that dumb and are investigating whether or not the man had recently been cleaning his  harpoon.

  1. Well, now I know I don’t get late night munchies after I fall asleep after this! Now if you’ll excuse me I got 20 megatons of explosives to clear off my cupboard 😛

  2. There’s no such thing as an unloaded harpoon, that’s my advice to the guy in Brazil.
    My heart goes out to poor Lesley. Fortunately, she didn’t have a bomb in her cupboard or she would have eaten it and developed a terrible case of gas, with explosions heard two miles away.
    As for the poodle/rodent, people keep both for pets, so what’s the big deal.

    • Ha ha! I guess people in Brazil aren’t very harpoon savvy. And now that I’m thinking about it, how does a harpoon get dirty, anyway? It won’t work if there’s a little blood on it?

      I’ve always heard that bombs were actually good for the digestive track, kind of like bicarbonate soda only more powerful. But then again, I get all my info from Brazil so . . .

      You’ll have to excuse me now, Russell, my poodle’s wedged in his habitat again . . . sigh . . .

  3. How…exactly do you spear yourself in the head with a harpoon? I always thought you just sort of threw those things at the whale or whatever. Did this guy have a harpoon launcher, or did he sneeze at the wrong time, or…..maybe I don’t even want to know.

    • LOL Michael. And he was at home too. It wasn’t like he was out in the ocean spearing tuna or whatever it is you spear. I only hope and pray if he did sneeze somebody somewhere got a video of it! 😀

  4. Funnily enough a friend was telling me about the harpoon story just the other night. Pretty disturbing. I am especially freaked out by the poodle/rodent story. That’s just super weird. What are people all about?

    • Isn’t that harpoon story strange,! Why does a harpoon need cleaning anyway! HA! And you’d think that people would be able to tell a rodent from a dog. Since when do rats behave like dogs? Hahah! I guess it just goes to show you that people see things the way they are expecting to see them.

  5. Haha wow. I eat a lot but thankfully not at night. Excuse me though while I just check my kitchen cupboards. I’ve not cleaned under my sink in awhile and want to be 100% certain there aren’t explosives there!!!

    • LOL! Emmeline!! Yes be very careful when opening the under the sink cupboard! I guess we’ll now have to add – forgotten WWII explosives in the cupboard – to our lists of anxieties! 😀 And thanks for stopping by! 😀

  6. LOL! Giant rodents on steroids scares me! I think I’m more frightened by the person who couldn’t tell the difference, although I must admit, that’s one fluffy rodent. haha!

    • He is scary! Well I only hope he named it Lance, at least! But how could he not tell the difference.? I never saw a rat that acted like a dog. I mean didn’t he get suspicious when it was able to squeeze itself through a hole the size of a quarter and then had 50 babies the next day? LOL!

  7. I know of someone who actually thought they were ‘rescuing’ a dog from Mexico and brought it home underneath their coat on the plane …only to find out from their vet when they took it in for a check-up that it was indeed a large ‘sewer rat’…. Diane

    • Really! That is fascinating! And they only knew by the vet? Isn’t that amazing! Well, at least steroids is one way to make a rat more tolerable I guess! I wonder if they would have kept it long enough if it would have slowly turned back into a rat without the steroids?

  8. Spearing yourself in the head with a harpoon and not having lost any brain power over it tells us a lot! We’ve also had bombs out at the farm (but not in the cupboard) left over from the war. Hubby found one when he was a kid and he and the neighbour tied to to the back of a pushbike and tore down the road a few times with it dragging behind before their parents noticed! 😉
