By Gum!!!
  • Artist Franz Spohn made Barack Obama from
    thousands of gumballs, the artist, along with a
    bunch of kids from Ohio said, Yes, we can!
    Spohn recruited dozens of volunteers to help
    create the portrait as part of the Martin Luther
    King Day celebration on January 19 at the King
    Kennedy Center in Ravenna, Ohio. After one hour
    and many sticky fingers, a one-of-a-kind work of
    art was born.

Funny Facts
  • Have you ever seen a pink dolphin? Me
    either...but Believe It or Not!, here it is!
    Charter boat captain Erik Rue, 42, captured this
    image after the mammal first surfaced in Lake
    Calcasieu, an inland saltwater estuary, north of
    the Gulf of Mexico in southwestern USA. He said
    "I just happened to see a little pod of dolphins,
    and I noticed one that was a little lighter. "It
    was absolutely stunningly pink. It is actually
    an albino dolphin. A close relation of dolphins,
    the Amazon River Botos, called pink dolphins,
    live in South America in the Amazon.

Weird Skunk!!!!
  • The Israeli police force has devised a new,
    organic, non-lethal weapon to use against
    protestors. Skunk is a new substance the police
    will shoot from a water cannon. The result is a
    rancid odour of rotting meat, dirty socks and
    sewage that lingers on the skin for about three
    days. Police stress that its completely harmless
    if ingested. They hope to soon sell it to police
    forces overseas .
