The Stardust Circus hit Bundaberg with a troupe of performing lions, horses, miniature trick ponies, dogs, monkeys, flying trapeze artists, a thrilling teeter board act, dynamic aerialists and the crazy clowns.

Stardust Circus ringmaster Adam St James said the circus, which began in 1893, had evolved to become one of the largest touring circuses in Australia, as well as the oldest touring circus family on the road.

“We are one of only two circuses in Australia with performing exotic animals,” the fifth-generation circus performer said.

“Our lions are born and bred in Australia and we offer one of the only lion acts in the world where the lion eats out of the trainer’s hand.

FIVE former Maroochydore State High School students who have been friends for more than 12 years have had babies within four months of each other.

They went to school together, graduated together, tasted the freedom and independence of adulthood together and are now juggling bottles and nappies together.

Eryn Fechner gave birth to Riley six months ago, followed a month later by Teagan Williams, who also had a son, Mitchell, now five months.

Four months ago, another member of the group, Gemma Hall, had a boy, Archie, followed by Rachael Kronk, who had a daughter, Scarlett, the following day.

As parents, sometimes the greatest lessons come unexpectedly, and from the smallest moments. 7-year-old Owen Shure’s heart-warming letter to a football player is a perfect example.

The Twittersphere buzzed with reactions to the San Francisco 49ers’ Kyle Williams fumbling the ball in a tight moment in the playoffs. Some responses were downright vitriolic. But hopefully Kyle also saw this touching story from Ben Mankiewicz on the Huffington Post Blog:

He was crying, saying of Kyle Williams, with the distinct sobs of a seven-year-old between each word, "But... why... did he... have to... fumble?"

[...] Trying to get his son to stop crying, Michael asked him, "If you feel this way,

Lao Pan, an unmarried man without much family, found close companionship with his loyal dog. And even through tragedy, their steadfast bond lives on.

Pan lived in the Chinese village of Panjiatun, but died earlier this month at the age of 68. His furry friend was found by villagers at Pan's grave safeguarding the site according to BBC News. The loyal pup refused to leave even after going seven days without food.

Sky News reports that since noticing the dog, villagers have been bringing food and water to the gravesite, and are even planning to build a kennel there for the dog to sleep in.

This dog's loyalty draws parallels to other famously loyal dogs, Digital Journal points out, suc

Wearing masks while committing a crime - it's a pretty standard practice. But what happens when you don't have access to your favorite Darth Vader mask? Grab your favorite piece of underwear and some paper clips, of course.

According to, an Oklahoma woman with underwear strapped to her face did just that, reaching through the window of a McDonald's drive-thru and stealing cash out of the register. The act was caught by the surveillance camera.

MIdwest CIty police chief Brandon Clabes stated:

"I've seen a wide variety of crime over the last 30 years but this particular case is one of the strangest based on her method of operation and weird disguise."

We could be wrong,

Two trailer park residents in Dayton, Ohio are going to be battling this out in court over the next few months.

Tattoo artist, Ryan L. Fitzjerald was hit with a $100,000 lawsuit last week by his ex-girlfriend Rossie Brovent. She claims that her boyfriend was supposed to tattoo a scene from Narnia on her back but instead tattooed an image of a pile of excrement with flies buzzing around it.

Apparently Ryan found out that she had cheated with a long-time friend of his and this was his way of getting even. Originally Rossie tried to have Ryan charged with assault but it turns out this crafty tattoo artist got her to sign a consent form prior to the tattoo and it said that the design was ‘

Between 1% and 5% of the population - including certain Bond villains - are said to have an additional nipple… but until recently none were recorded as having one on their foot.

However, that all changed with the discovery of this foot which belongs to a 22-year-old woman and was recently featured in a dermatology journal.

Researchers say the foot nipple is particularly rare because the condition (supernumerary breast tissue) is normally found above the waist.

Unsurprisingly the owner of the nipple-totting foot has chosen to remain anonymous fearing she'd be mocked with people asking her to put her breast foot forward and dodgy puns like that… some people would really milk it.

The man from Germany sent a credit card to Donna Simpson with specific instructions: Buy pizzas, Chinese food and other takeout.

He wanted Simpson to use his money to become as large as possible, and he got excited knowing he helped feed the 600-pound woman, she said.

“He didn’t even need to see me,” she said. “Just the fact that he was feeding me was enough of a thrill for him.”

For years, the 44-year-old mother of two was a star in the fantasy fetish community that worshipped the overweight and the feeding that led to it. Simpson had a website where men paid $19 a month to watch her eat. She flew around the world for various events. And she became famous in the British papers.

MADISON, Wis. — Police say a Wisconsin man took the Denny's restaurant chain slogan "America's diner is always open" too far, marching into one of the restaurants, announcing he was the new boss and cooking himself dinner.

James Summers walked into a Madison Denny's on Tuesday dressed in a maroon tie and black trench coat and carrying a briefcase, according to police. He strode into the manager's office, told her he was the new general manager and then fixed himself a burger, fries and a soda before police arrived.

"This is why you don't dine and dash, kiddies," Summers yelled out to diners as officers took him away, police said in a release.

Police found a stun gun in a hip holster
