Around The Weird: Bizarre News Briefs

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash) -- If you're waiting until the last minute to Christmas shop you're not alone. According to a survey by Suave hand lotion, 22 percent of men wait until Christmas Eve to shop, as do 13 percent of women.

HACKETTSTOWN, N.J. -- M&M lovers who get tongue-tied can now have messages printed on their candies. The company says it can print just about any two-line, 16-character message on the treats such as "I Love Grandpa" or "Go Team!" on 21 different colored M&Ms. The candy-maker offers the service at mms.com

PHILADELPHIA -- The city of brotherly love is giving no love to little moviegoers. A Philadelphia city councilman has proposed legislation that would prevent parents from bringing any child under six to a movie theater after 7 p.m. unless they're seeing a G-rated movie. Under the bill, parents would be fined $50 and movie theaters $300. Kenney's spokesman tells the "Philadelphia Business Journal," "I think anybody who went to see "Spider-Man" at 9 at night and had a screaming baby next to them can appreciate why this bill should be looked at."

BERLIN -- The purring under the hood of a German couple's car wasn't that of the engine -- it was coming from a cat. According to the "Bonn" newspaper, Elisabeth and Dieter Gesehl found a six-week-old kitten cowering next to the engine of their car after hearing the meows of the furry creature when they parked following a 275 mile journey. The couple doesn't know how the cat got there, but have since adopted it and named it "Pussy."
