British Soldier Got a Piece of Ass..Iraq Wants it Back, Saying Saddam Hussein's Butt is a Cultural Antiquity

A former soldier who seized a buttock from Saddam Hussein's statue was told by the Iraqi government to give it back.

Nigel "Spud" Ely was part of Britain's elite commando regiment guarding a camera crew in April 2003 as it filmed jubilant Iraqis pulling down the giant statue in Baghdad.

Ely, from Derby in central England, picked up a two-foot (0.6-meter) lump of bronze that had formed part of the tyrant's backside and took it back to the UK.

Now the Iraqi government is claiming the metal chunk is a piece of the country's "cultural antiquity" and demanding that he return it or face possible theft charges.

Ely, now 52, has been interviewed by local police after the Iraqi embassy made a complaint.

He tried unsuccessfully to auction it last year in aid of injured troops.

He said, "If the Iraqis want to split the proceeds to give some to Iraqi charities, I am happy to listen."

VIDEO: Amazing video of baby surviving being hit by train

A six-month-old boy has miraculously survived a train slamming into his pram after it rolled off an Australian railway platform.

The collision happened as a city-bound service pulled up to Ashburton station, in a Melbourne suburb.
CCTV footage shows the boy's mother taking her hands off the three-wheeler pram's handles and failing to notice as it slowly edges towards the tracks.
The mum suddenly spots the baby carrier picking up speed and she rushes with outstretched arms to try to save her young child.
Luckily, he was strapped into his pram at the time, which probably saved his life.

But the pram tips over the edge of the platform and the baby slams onto the tracks head first.
Before the boy can be rescued, the train powers past, horrifying the mother and other waiting passengers.
The footage ends with the frantic mum and a man running up to the driver, who has just stopped the 250-ton vehicle.

Australia's Herald Sun said the train ploughed into the pram at about 35km/h, dragging the child along beneath the front carriage.
But the boy was hauled from the tracks with little more than a bump on his head.
Paramedic Jon Wright said the six-month-old just "needed a feed and a nap".
"Luckily, he was strapped into his pram at the time, which probably saved his life. I think the child's extremely lucky," the paramedic told the paper.
"Fortunately the train was slowing as it pulled into the station."
Rail firm Connex is to investigate how the pram rolled off the platform and the train driver will be offered counselling.

PRANK VIDEO: Car Runs On Corn



Little Bobby walks into the kitchen where his mom is fixing dinner. "Mom, I got a splinter in my finger. Can I have a glass of cider?"

"Are you sure you don't want me to pull it out?"

"No thanks, just the cider."

So she gives him the cider and watches him trot contentedly off.

Ten minutes later Bobby returns once again and asks for a glass of cider. The mother complies with her son's wishes again, but her curiosity has been piqued to the point where she can't resist knowing why any longer. So she wanders into the family room and sees her son sitting in front of the TV with his finger in the glass.

"Why on earth do you have your finger in that glass," she asks?

"Well, Mom, I heard Sis on the phone say that whenever she has a prick in her hand, she can't wait to get it in cider."

VIDEO: Boomer the Mascot Ends Game Before it Begins

Indiana Pacers mascot Boomer put on quite a show for New Palestine High School on Friday night . . . but it was shorter than expected.

On his first dunk, the fuzzy blue-and-yellow cat earned his nickname by tearing down the rim, leaving tiny pieces of the backboard scattered on the court and the teams headed to the auxiliary gym to finish the game.

"I didn't think he came down on it so hard, but it went bloof," New Palestine athletic director Al Cooper said. "I'm sitting there thinking, 'There's no manual for this one.' But we had the (auxiliary) gym set up because we had a freshman game during the (junior varsity) game. It turned out to be a seamless transition."

Cooper praised the Pacers and Boomer for how they handled the situation. Boomer signed autographs throughout the second half, and the Pacers will refund the appearance fee and replace the backboard Monday, according to Cooper. New Palestine doesn't play at home again for two weeks, so there will be no disruption in the schedule.

"It was a positive out of a chaotic situation," Cooper said as the Dragons went on to a 70-45 victory over Triton Central. "Boomer did a great job and the Pacers have been wonderful."
