It’s a Weird World
Two-headed cobra alive and spitting
A two-headed mutant cobra is alive and growing, even though it doesn’t eat or drink, although bizarrely each head tries to swallow the other.
that’s according to China’s People’s Daily Online, which says the reptile was found by a snake breeder, known only as Mr huang.
Both heads have their own brain, which means they often try to move in opposite directions. the cobra has now been handed over to Nanning Zoo. Zookeeper Li Keqi said: “the snake has been alive for 10 days now and has been with us for two, during which time it has already changed its skin once.” — metro.co.uk
Woman defends marriage to ‘old man’
A 22-year-old bride-to-be has been forced to defend falling in love with a man 36 years older than her.
Carly King, of woodbridge in Suffolk, is getting married to Billy Potter, 58 – who has three children aged 27, 29 and 31.
“we tried to hide it to start with because of the age gap,” she explained.
“But people did find out and they had a lot to say about it. Most of it was negative to be honest.
“People were saying it would never last, that I was after his money. Just hurtful things. they just weren’t prepared to give us a chance at all.”
the couple met in 2011 when Carly took her car to him for advice after he was recommended by her sister. She said she felt instantly attracted to him. their romance blossomed when Carly began giving Billy lifts home from the pub she worked at.
She continued: “It was a shock as he said he would never get married, but obviously he wanted to.
“the 36-year age gap has not affected anything really. At the start he said he would never get married because he wanted to warn me.
“I accepted it, but I knew deep down one day I wanted my dream wedding and in the end it just got more serious and he wanted it to. he loves me a lot.
“He finds his emotions hard to talk about but I know that he loves me. we genuinely worship the ground each other walks on.” — metro.co.uk
