Around The Weird: Bizarre News Briefs

NIS, Serbia (Wireless Flash) -- A Serbian baker believes he's set a new world record for the largest birthday cake ever assembled. Zvonko Mihajlovic's 400-foot cake required 2100 eggs, 440 pounds of whipping cream, 1000 pints of milk, 1500 pounds of sugar, 880 pounds of butter and 22 pounds of cherries and weighed in at a whopping 2.2 tons, local media reports.

BERLIN -- Talk about multi-tasking: A German company has created eyeglasses which can double as chopsticks. The earpieces on the $300 stainless steel frames detach so diners can dig in to dishes immediately, and can also be ordered in fork form, reports ananova.com.

OSLO, Norway -- A Norwegian pornography film crew captured a real money shot: They filmed the hijacking of a money truck. The crew was filming a p**** near the capital city of Oslo when three men in ski masks pulled guns on the unarmed truck guards. Police arrived and gunfire was exchanged before officers secured the truck. The incident was captured on about an hour's worth of film that was handed over to the police as evidence.

MILAN, Italy -- An elderly Italian man who put an advertisement in his local newspaper seeking to be adopted by a family has had an overwhelmingly positive response. Seventy-nine-year-old Giorgi Angelozzi ran the posting: "Elderly retired school teacher seeks family willing to adopt grandfather. Will pay." Out of the dozens of offers he's received, one was from his former student, now a popular Italian singer. Lonely Angelozzi has been living with his seven cats since his wife died in 1992.
