International Weird News

The United States doesn't have a monopoly on weird news.

In Straubing Germany, a female postal worker was busted after cops fdiscovered 13 sacks and five wash baskets of undelivered mail in her bedroom. Her reason for this, she wanted to cut her workload.

Jacob Jugashvili is a struggling artist in the country of Georgia. He's also Joseph Stalin's grandson. And like his granddad, he is a defender of the old communist system. He said it was the most unique and successful event in the history of mankind. Jugashvili said that what we did in a short period of 50 or 60 years the Western world needed 150 years to accomplish. He has conveniently forgotten about the 3 million or more Russians his grandpa had murdered.

Access to YouTube has been blocked in Turkey because a court has ruled that some clips on the website disrespect Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the country's revered founding father. It is illegal in the country to insult the former leader. At least they didn't riot, the just blocked YouTube.
