Weird weather forecast: Watch out! It might rain iguanas! Weather forecasters in the state of Florida (U.S.) aren’t kidding when they make this prediction. A cold snap in the area that usually is warm can stun these reptiles. If they are in a tree when that happens, the creatures could fall out. But locals know not to worry about the health of the iguanas that lie on the ground after falling from their perches. Once the temperature
warms up, they are able to move again, and they get up and walk away.
Going squirrely: Those who live in neighborhoods frequented by squirrels know that the little critters like to gather nuts. But a couple from Allegheny Country, Pennsylvania (U.S.), were shocked to discover that the rodents near their home were stashing nuts under the hood of their SUV. They could smell something burning when they started the car. Upon further investigation, they found over 200 walnuts and wads of grass under the hood. Luckily, the grass was damp, so it didn’t catch fire. The pair cleaned up the mess and took the vehicle to their mechanic, who gave them the “all clear.”
Cucumber holdup: Staff members in a shop in Glasgow, Scotland, needn’t have been frightened of a robber who came into the premises. He was armed only with a cucumber, which he had covered with a black sock. The would-be thief was Gary Rough, and he tried to get the staff to give him cash. But before his demand was granted, an off-duty police officer who was in the store noticed that something was going on and
came to the rescue. Rough ended up being arrested. The judge was not impressed and gave the thief jail time for his crime.
Good Peruvian eats: People in London, England, who crave a bit of Peruvian cuisine would be wise to try out the bottomless brunch at Coya Mayfair, a restaurant in the city’s West End. First, guests are greeted with colorful decor and the music of Peru, and then they are served the wonderful food. Dishes include crocantes and guacamole, which is freshly made right at the table, ceviche, and vegan options like grilled corn with lime and chili butter. People who attend this brunch need lots of free time, as it takes all afternoon to get through
the many courses.
