Around The Weird: Bizarre News Briefs

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Prostitutes need love too. That’s why Amsterdam’s red light district is erecting a bronze statue dedicated to hookers around the world. The sexy statue is at the request of founding Dutch prostitute, Mariska Majoor, and depicts a “self-assured woman standing on a doorstep, with her hands on her hips looking towards the sky.” No word yet on when the statue will be built.

BANGKOK, Thailand – Two pandas at the zoo in Bangkok, Thailand, are having a hard time getting busy because the male panda, Chuang Chuang, is “too fat” to have sex. Zookeepers say his female mate, Lin Hui, “ no longer comfortable having sex with him,” because of his 331-pound frame. Now, the bulky bear is being put on a strict diet. Among other tactics to get the pandas to have sex, the zoo is planning to show the bears videos of other pandas doing the deed.

YORK, Pa. – A judge in York, Pennsylvania, has ruled that the city violated an anti-abortion group’s rights by placing them at the back of a Halloween parade. City officials claim they placed the group in the back so they could protect them. The judge ruled the group’s free speech rights were violated.
