Around The Weird: Bizarre News Briefs

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash) -- There may be no place like home for the holidays, but many folks would rather be elsewhere. According to a survey by travel website expedia.com, 36 percent of respondents would rather be "anywhere else" than home during the holidays. But only 12 percent say they'll actually avoid the family by taking a getaway trip and 67 percent say they'll likely spend time with friends and family.

WELLINGTON, New Zealand -- Instead of breast-feeding her baby daughter, a New Zealand woman has decided to suckle her pet pooch. Kura Tumanako says she started feeding her Staffordshire bull terrier pup after her two-month-old baby stopped taking her milk. Tumanako says she didn't want her breast milk to go to waste and tells the NZPA news agency, "He drinks more than the baby. It doesn't hurt, but it's a little bit ticklish."

BERLIN -- There's nothing worse than a smelly co-worker. At least, that's what Germans think. A newly-released survey by the German magazine "Junge" "Karriere" found 38 percent of German office workers are "most bothered" by the smells of their colleagues. Co-workers socializing too much came in second with 15 percent while untidy desks took third place on the list with 14 percent.

CORRECTION -- The story in the Nov. 16 feed headlined "Canadian Nurse Aims To Build Better Sex Toys" contained an incorrect contact number. To arrange interviews with Sue Johansen, contact Scott Stein at (310) 927-4767.
