I'll have some fries with that 

It seems that getting fat is not the only potential risk you face when going into a fast food joint. Check out this story from the US (where else?) about a hoaxer who pretends to be a police officer and convinces restaurant managers to perform body searches (including cavity searches!) on “suspect” customers and employees. So if you accidentally drop a coin at your local fast food outlet, be not just alert but also very alarmed.

Meanwhile, over the border (their’s, not our’s), in that wacky part of North American Europe called Canada, a group of feminists wants to tax porn. For all those small government activists among us, it gives a whole new meaning to the old slogan “get your hand out of my pocket.”

And in Austria, a doctor claims that picking your nose and eating your snot is good for you. This is the country which gave us the vegetarian Hitler and the ever-expanding Schwarzenegger, so this latest contribution to the world seems quite benign by comparison. Love the quote: “He [the doctor] says society should adopt a new approach to nose-picking and encourage children to take it up.” I would have thought that children hardly need any more encouragement to do it.
