Why tell lies about Nairobi’s airport, when the truth is bad enough?
Rubbing Kenya the wrong way, but are the facts right? An airline manager claimed that Jomo Kenyatta International Airport is similar to Aden Adde International Airport in Somalia, where aircraft that make unscheduled landings because of weather are blocked until they pay $18,000. Graeme Samuel, chairman of Airlines for Australia and New Zealand (A4ANZ), said in parliament that he couldn’t contemplate any place in the world, except perhaps Somalia or Nairobi, where such things happen.
After Kenya’s High Commissioner to Australia, Isaiya Kabira, wrote a protest letter, Mr Samuel apologised, saying he “regretted” the reference to Nairobi.
Gregg Miller now, he is the dog’s bollocks!
A crazy idea can actually generate millions! Some 25 years ago, an American, Gregg Miller, invented Neuticles, silicone implants for male dogs to replace testicles after neutering so they don’t lose their “manly” look. He is now a millionaire. Miller first came up with the idea in the 1990s when he refused to have his pet dog neutered because he could have lost its “God-given natural look.” After testing the first Neuticle prototypes on 30 pets without any problems, the first pair of fake dog ball implants was sold in 1995. Miller claims to have sold over 500,000 Neuticles in the past 25 years, and that has made him a millionaire. He has since expanded his business, offering fake testicles for felines, horses and bulls as well. He even sold a pair of giant silicone testicles for an elephant at a zoo.
Serbia, on the other hand, is the cow’s doom
Vaches Sans Frontieres not allowed in Serbia! A pregnant cow from Bulgaria has been sentenced to death for “illegally” crossing the border into neighbouring Serbia; it apparently could not be taken back to Bulgeria without the appropriate paperwork because Serbia is not a member of the European Union.
Penka, the cow sealed her fate when she broke away from her herd near the Bulgarian village of Kopilovtsi and crossed the border into Serbia. The cow’s owner, Ivan Haralampiev, is in a dilemma because border authorities told him that, according to European Union legislation, the cow was going to have to be put down for entering Bulgaria from a non-eu country without proper import papers.
