January 1, 2015

This year we took a Christmas break, my first since we began Weird News Weekly.

We wish everyone a Happy New Year as doctors were busy over Christmas with so much illness, I hope those who were ill over the yule period are now fully recovered.

We return with more news stories from around the world with a British courier firm, City Link, being put into administration on Christmas Eve, waiting until the work force had completed delivering their Christmas consignments while leaving the workers union to contact their members to give them the bad news that they no longer had a job. Our second news story comes from Germany where a teacher, contracted by a religious organisation, was found to be moonlighting, having a second job as a porn star and is now fighting against her dismissal. And we end in Russia where a 12-year-old school boy got his Joseph's mixed up. Having been given the part of Joseph of Nazareth in the school nativity play, he arrived in costume as Joseph Stalin.

The Weird News Weekly Stupid Celebrity of the Week Award goes to British Socialite, Tara Palmer Tomkinson.

My apologies for any confusion as this show is wrongly dated

For our second show of 2015 we are joined by our good friend, DJ Rick Hinton who can now be heard from Flagler Pier in Florida on Flagler Beach Radio, which, if you are local to the Flagler area, can be tuned in on your radio at 97.3 FM or online at www.flaglerbeachradio.com/

Our news stories are Florida free this week, and with Rick being an Elvis fan, all he can afford is to go and look round Elvis' planes, the Lisa Marie and Hound Dog 2 which are both up for sale through a sealed auction. Moving to the UK for the biggest haul of coins found in England which is going to make the treasure hunter who found the 5,000 coins which are over 1,000 years old, a very rich man. And we end our news stories in Australia where a would-be thief was literally blown off his feet in attempting to blow up an ATM machine to get at the money within.

We have given the celebrities the week off to remember some of those talented celebrities who passed in 2014.

This week news stories include the high security prisoner in the UK that saw a girl on television from his cell and decided to write to her asking if she would be his pen pal and the angry postal worker who ended up going viral. We bring the results from a study by Ohio University on male addiction to taking selfies and it's back to the UK and the dog abandoned at the railway station.

Our Stupid Celebrity of the Week is Justin Bieber.

We are joined this week by returning guest, historian and writer, Daniel Webb.

Our first news stories this week was suggested by our guest. Coming from China, a woman scorned decided to teach her cheating husband a lesson, and not by hitting his wallet. We then go to the UK where a man was arrested after becoming amorous with a mail box and end with the abandoned cat that saved the life of an abandoned baby.

This weeks Stupid Celebrity is Pope Francis who if provoked will punch rather than turning the other cheek.

This week we have a special guest, Ray Irving, who went from being a teacher to Henry VIII, visiting many places to talk about Tudor life during the reign of one of the worlds most famous men in history. Ray would like the challenge of being asked a question he's never been asked before, related to Henry and his life of course. You can contact Ray through his Henry Tudor website where there are free  books to download, all Ray asks is that you give a little bit of money to charity.

Our news stories include the man who hates food but must love Marmite, that being his main diet, and karma strikes fast as a man rudely insults another on the London underground then goes for a job interview and is faced with the man he insulted.

Our Stupid Celebrity of the Week Award goes to Afroman.
