Amazing Fishing and Pet Crocodiles

Saturday, June 30, 2007

A Costa Rican man has made an unlikely friend in a 5 metre, 450 kilogram crocodile.

Gilberto Graham has seemingly domesticated the massive crocodile, starting his own show in the Costa Rican city of Limon. In the show Graham cavorts with the crocodile in the water and gives commands that the animal follows. When asked if he doesn't fear attack, Graham said that he trusts the animal. "I've tried it many different times".

And whilst we are in South America, check out this remarkable home video of two men "fishing" where the fish literally rain into the boat!

Wacky Judge Roy L. Pearson Pants Case Dismissed

Monday, June 25, 2007

See our original story on Judge Roy Pearson's suit here

Wacky Judge Roy L. Pearson lost his $54 million claim against Custom Dry Cleaners of Washington DC for losing his trousers... well he has lost this round and has been ordered to pay the defendants out of pocket costs.

District of Columbia Superior Court Judge Judith Bartnoff is still to rule if the suit was frivalous and possibly order Wacky Roy to pay up to $100,000 in legal fees for the Chungs. (ouch)

CNN on Judge Roy L. Pearson 25th June 2007
(story is preceded by a 15 second video advert)

Everyone expects Judge Pearson to appeal so chances are a new chapter in this sage will appear here soon! :D
