This week Weird News Weekly gives a thumbs up to Alfred Throop who prevented what would have been a bad traffic accident. A Brazilian angler who died in a bazaar way after betting friends he could hold the fish he had caught between his teeth for one minute. The Chinese home owners who refused to move from their home and now have a road built around them. Petra Mills who was found guilty of a racist slur after calling her New Zealand neighbour an Australian. And we end with some strange gift ideas with more gift ideas in the run up to Christmas.

DJ Rick Hinton was our guest for this weeks offering of Weird News Weekly when we talked about Chicago Bears player Brandon Marshall who made suggestions that players used Viagra to help improve their game. We then moved to Norway where a television advertisement with zombies is now only being shown after 9pm after public criticism. There is the astounding news that Stephen Wright was hit by a train going at 70 miles per hour only to suffer whiplash, and of course a big headache. The festivities are underway in Manning Close, Wells, Somerset with Paul Toole decorating his garden yet again, this year using 60,000 LED lights. And we end with a few more Christmas gift ideas of the unusual kind.

In this last show of the year we look back at a few celebrities that passed away in 2012 and also recap on some of the stories we have covered with updates.

In the second edition of Weird News Weekly there was the story of school girl Sarah Payne with the authorities telling her to remove her blog on school meals. Jacole Prince from Kansas City had her children taken from her when a tip off to police took them to her apartment where she had her eldest daughter locked in a closet suffering from malnutrition. The family of Dawn Viens who went missing in 2009 finally saw justice when David Viens was put on trial for her murder. The waxworks in Great Yarmouth that was set to close if a buyer wasn't found finally had to close its doors, and the house in China that had a road built round it was finally demolished.
