Lord, I read weird sites. This one is from JWZ: Lactation Assault.

After Toni Tramel, 31, was arrested last Thursday for public intoxication, [...] Tramel "took off her bra, grabbed her breast and squirted breast milk, hitting me in the face and neck region," reported Brown. Tramel attempted a second lactation assault, "but was unsuccessful," added Brown. [...] As for Brown, a jail press release noted that the officer was successfully able to "clean the bio-hazard off her."

Bloggers now eligible for press passes in NYC

India’s Zero Rupee Note

March 19, 2013

I don’t remember exactly where I first heard about this, but it came up from a number of different sources, which was itself interesting. India ‘issues’ zero rupee banknotes. Wikipedia’s article. Another article.

He gave one example where a tax official refused to process documents unless he paid her 500 rupees.

"I handed over the zero-rupee note which I always keep in my pocket," said Sundar.

"She was afraid and didn’t want to take it. She completed the job immediately and said she was sorry and asked me not to take it forward."

We sure could have used something like this in Cameroon..
