Around The Weird: Bizarre News Briefs

WASHINGTON (Wireless Flash) -- Subway restaurants are being torpedoed by an activist group for running anti-American ads in Germany. The National Legal and Policy Center says it objects to the fast food chain's German stores promoting the documentary, "Super Size Me," with tray-liners portraying an obese Statue of Liberty with the tagline, "Why are Americans so obese?"

HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. -- The three most hated words to kids, "back to school," may be the most expensive words for mom. A survey by Sears, Roebuck and Co. shows that 58 percent of moms spend at least $200 per child for back-to-school clothing and 22 percent spend $350 on school clothes for kids. School clothing shopping is never done according to 22 percent of moms who say they are "always shopping for back-to-school clothes."
