It's a mad mad mad world

Doctors offer to maim beggars
Secretly filmed footage taken by the CNN-IBN news channel and broadcast Saturday showed one of the doctors asking for 10,000 rupees (about $215) to amputate a lower leg, leaving a stump that may draw sympathy -- and a few rupees -- from passersby.
"Believe me if there are two beggars in front of you and one of them is lame, you will give the money to the lame beggar," the station recorded him as saying in Hindi.

Chuck Norris Bridge Leads Vote for Name

(If they named the bridge "Jack Bauer," no one would dare cross it - oooooooh, snap!)
