| Author: EYE-BALL’s Harry’s Growl | 26th Aug 2012 |
The World is a never ending parade of the usual and the unusual.  News stories come from the strangest of places – many stories get reported and are read by locals and never get to see the light of day.

Harry’s Growl plans to feature a regular post called ‘ODDBALL News Wrap‘. The intent is to present abstract stories to provide a lighter perspective to the alternatives offered at this site. The ‘format’ is still being tinkered with but will get there in a visual context.

If news is not your cup of tea and you want straight humour – try the EYE-BALL’s JokeZone Index page.

Todays ‘Oddball’ update is all World News from various sources.
