She's a Cartoon, But Boy is She Ever Sexy...
For those of you who are unfamiliar with it, let me introduce you to the Ananova news site.
The site is a lot more popular in Europe than it is in the states, and that's a shame since it is one of the most unique sites on the web. The main draws for the site are the computer animated newscaster (yeah baby, click it, you know you want to)and the quirkie stories that she covers.
It's the best place on the web to hear stories such as:
Man in Cambodia claims his dog gave birth to a kitten after mating with a tiger
Woman bitten on toe by seven inch bed bug
Woman finds rare car buried in her garden
Groom uses socks as eyebrows
Man to have 3,000 piercings as 9/11 tribute
You can also find out how they are breeding flavored lettuce, how having children can lower your IQ by twenty points, and how you can eliminate diesel pollution using urine. Really.
