Now there's something you don't see every day
All right, time for a roundup of things that are universally regarded as weird. First check out Jones Soda Co. and its popular lineup of sodas: Turkey and Gravy, Green Bean Casserole, and Mashed Potato and Butter. Next the annual Vegetarian Festival at the Chinese shrine of Jui Tui in Phuket, Thailand, features a parade of vegans with, shall we say, unusual body piercings. The one that caught my eye was of the man who had pierced his face with...wait for it!...a bicycle. Don't visit this sight if you're squeamish, though. Some of the piercings are weirder than that. Finally, a fascinating new personal defense weapon: the credit card shotgun. It actually fires several steel BBs (two rounds, even) from a gun the size of a credit card and about ½" thick.
