Around The Weird: Bizarre News Briefs

NEWARK, N.J. (Wireless Flash) -- Ever since New Jersey governor Jim McGreevey announced he was gay, insiders in his state have been snickering over his state tourism slogans: "Straight talk," and "Come out and see New Jersey."

LOS ANGELES -- An angry novelty maker is thumbing his nose at Arnold Schwarzenegger after the California governor sued the manufacturer of his bobblehead doll of Ah-nuld in a dark suit holding a gun. John Edgell, who's still fuming over the settlement, now says he plans to make Schwarzenegger urinal cakes and a new "Girlie-Man" bobblehead doll featuring Arnold wearing a pink dress and makeup.

NEW YORK -- A wheelchair-bound woman with no arms or legs was hopping mad at Air France when one of its gate agents told her, "a head, one bottom and a torso cannot possibly fly on its own." Now, the 42-year-old British citizen has slapped the airline with a lawsuit and claims she is able to use a wheelchair and has traveled many times by air.

LISBON, Portugal -- A donkey-drawn-cart beat a Porsche sports-car in a race to see which mode of transportation would win in the congested streets of Portugal. The race went from the suburb of Areosa to the port city of Viana do Castelo, just over a mile away. One city official claimed the results of the race prove that there needs to be a ring road to alleviate traffic, but other officials have maintained in the past that traffic isn't a problem.
