Join Diane Browne and Norman Soldwish for another week of weird news which includes Lake Michigan, now being ice free it is so clear that shipwrecks can e seen from the air, except there are more than there should be. If you're in the market for a job, and you're a qualified counsellor, then maybe its time for an island holiday with a job opportunity arising off St Helens. We go to Colorado where a mum was lunch shamed by her child's school over Oreo cookies, and end in Greece where a court refused to defer a case when informed that the man being charged with theft had died.

Chad L Coleman receives our Stupid Celebrity of the Week Award.

This week we are joined once again by living historian and screen writer, Daniel Webb who will hopefully return in the near future with details of his screen writing.

Our first news story comes from Ireland and perhaps an overly truthful caller to a live radio show as he admitted cheating on his wife of 17 years. Listen to the podcast of Michael calling the show and its follow up where the wife joins in. A woman from Mechanicsville, Maryland was arrested after adding a bit of flavor to milk she served to her family, and the candles from Kentucky for Kentucky that have gone on sale which are assured to make you feel hungry.

Our Stupid Celebrity is former child star from Baywatch, Jeremy Jackson.

This week there is the added bonus of a Message on the Wall telling the haunting story of the The Man and the Bridge.

It's also coming up to Weird News Weekly's third anniversary and we are celebrating with a prized draw which will take place on June 11, 2015.

In the news this week is the doctor who was shipped back to Georgia to be treated for Ebola (see Weird News Weekly No.112 August 7 2014). Having been declared cured, he realised there was something wrong when one of his eyes changed a different colour. Tests eventually revealed that Ebola was still lurking within his body. There are amazing results for some when they type their name in Google Maps which gather information people put on the internet, so putting in a name can pinpoint where people live. There's the golf course which added some extra holes, sinkholes that is, and the 16th Birthday Party that guests will never forget when it rained poop.

Our Stupid Celebrity of the Week Award goes to three people, Josh, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar who tried to cover up a family secret.

Diane Browne and Norman Soldwish bring you more Weird News From Around The World, well, America and England this week with the news that a Virgin passenger on an internal flight just happened to see what the man next to her was writing. Sending out an alert which stopped the plane from taking off, listen to the show for this amazing story. We go to England and the mother and daughter who have each been given a four year prison sentence for arson, blaming their crime on a ouija board, and there are more distracted people hitting more than the news headlines.

Our Stupid Celebrity of the Week Award recipient is sport star and dog killer Prince Shambo.

In Somerset, England, Axbridge Council are thinking of hiring a private detective to sniff out the dog owners who aren't picking up the poop.

Join Diane Browne and Norman Soldwish for more weird news from around the world, with this weeks news stories coming from North Korea with its scientists claiming they have developed a miracle cure for AIDS, Ebola, Sars and Mers. We then stroll over to China when a young girl found out the consequences of being more interested in texting than where she was going. And over in Scotland there was a sight shoppers in the busy city of Glasgow don't often see when a woman stooped to pee. The last news item comes from Florida where a teenage girl is due in court on charges after saving photos on her phone containing images of herself being sexually active with her grandmothers dog.

We end with our Stupid Celebrity of the Week Award going to former UK Big Brother winner Helen Wood.
