Dog gives birth to a kitten
Jeong Pyong-bong, a man in North Korea, claims that his dog recently had a litter of puppies, only they were not all puppies. One of the little dogs was meowing and purring like a kitten. Pyong-Bong admits that it’s a little strange but said that his dog was quite fond of cats. As per Pyong-Bong, his dog disappeared one night and must have hooked up with one of the alley cats.
Despite his insistence the puppy is a kitten, experts have said such a ‘miracle birth’ was genetically impossible. The number and trait of chromosomes in canines and felines are different.
Double decker bus that does push-ups
A bus has been transformed into an exercising artwork that can perform push-ups. Artist David Cerny created The London Booster by attaching huge arms, suspension mechanics and adding groaning sound effects to the 1957 double decker bus. The Czech artist said the piece could be seen as ironic because push-ups are a common exercise for every sportsman but also punishment. The big red rig, nicknamed the London Booster, does push-ups with the help of an engine powering a pair of robotic arms. It does this with recorded sounds of grunting and groaning like an athlete working out. It will be parked outside the Czech Olympic headquarters in London for the duration of the 2012 Olympic Games.
