Go ahead and waste some time that report or such can wait, this is real news.

Like weird news stories? You'll love the weird and
wonderful stuff we find on the press release wires!
The snorkel with the FM radio built in. The world's
largest pillow fight. The cheap toothpick syndrome.
Extreme Flower Arranging! The year of Peter Pan. All
this and lots, lots more at PR Bop: Weird and
Wonderful off the Wires. Free newsletter!
