Oh the tragedy.

New Jersey’s favorite dying newspaper, The Star Ledger, has more.

Don’t worry; I’m sure in a year someone will offer Snooki and her baby their own reality TV show. He can be the Honey Boo Boo Child of the Shore.

Considering how long I lived in New Jersey, I’m still a little disappointed I never visited the bar in Seaside Heights where Snooki got punched.

Not really Weird News, but still the most interesting thing on Digg today. Why do Gentleman Pandas pee upside-down? Answer: For the Lady Pandas.

Via the UK’s Daily Mail – video narrated by David Attenborough:

The higher the scent is, the better their personal message spreads, so some clever panda along the evolutionary line began doing a handstand, allowing him to get his pee a little bit higher than any other panda in the forest…

Along with the urine, pandas also secrete ‘anogenital gland secretions’, a waxy substance which indicates the age and sex of the panda to curious observers.

The researchers said: ‘Aiming urine backwards and hitting the target is probably no easy task, particularly when doing a handstand, so selection of larger trees for urine marks probably maximizes the amount of urine that reaches the target.

This is a Weird News Wednesday one day late.

Mug shots and story via The Daily Mail:

A university lab technician was arrested after he was found intoxicated with his pants down, surrounded by two monkeys who had been released from their cages.

Coley Mitchell was discovered by a co-worker sitting in a chair, half naked, in a locker room at Georgia Health Sciences University on August 13…

When police officers asked the 32-year-old to leave the facility, he was aggressive and uncooperative, according to WRDW-TV.

Good times, those monkey parties. Relevant Song.

ElectoralVote: Akin’s rape opinion isn’t new. Earlier this year, every House Republican and 16 Blue Dog Democrats voted for a bill that would have redefined rape in federal statutes to be “forcible rape.”

Ah, America. And Europe wants to extradite Julian Assange because he didn’t wear a condom.
