WTF News Wednesday: Surfing Mermaid, Cancer Barbie, Horny Ostriches

420 pounds of cow brains seized at Cairo airport

Officials at Cairo’s international airport confiscated 420 pounds (190 kilograms) of frozen cow brains Friday from three Sudanese travelers who planned to sell them to Egyptian restaurants.

An airport official said it was the fourth time this week that customs officers there had foiled an attempt to smuggle cow brains into the country, reflecting the growth of a moneymaking scheme made possible by some realities of international supply and demand: Cow brains are cheap in Sudan, and Egyptians like to eat them.

This is how the zombie apocalypse starts. First it’s cow brains, then monkey brains, then human brains. Although, read the following description and tell me you didn’t drool a lil bit:

[The item is] deep fried and often eaten in pita bread with spicy red sauce.

I just request that ‘ish on Delivery.com.

Surfing mermaid makes a splash

Mischa Davis is a 23-year-old women’s longboard competitor (and law student) who handcrafts her own tails from wetsuit material.

”Watching surfing from underneath the water gives you a whole new understanding and appreciation of waves. It also helps me hold my breath when surfing in big sets because I can pretend I’m a mermaid wearing my fin.”

We wonder what Hipster Ariel would say. On a side note – this chick must really hate sex, right? Or she’s into some really kinky sh*t.

That ostrich over there? It is totally into you.

[B]eing raised entirely by humans (as is standard operating procedure on ostrich farms) has a significant impact on the disposition of the big, flightless birds. What kind of impact? The sort of impact that leads ostriches to believe that a human would make for a fine mate.

Talk about a slump buster. I’ve buried my head in the sand plenty of times after a shady hook up. Let’s do this.

Fidel Castro Wants Robot To Be U.S. President

He’s probably got some kinda weather control service that can manipulate satellites and thus control SkyNet, which would allow him to overthrow the US. Sh*t, he’s probably a robot.

Beautiful and Bald Barbie

I’m on the fence with this one: On one hand, I get it. You have kids out there who have cancer and feel ostracized, alone, and need to feel beautiful. On the other hand, doesn’t Barbie give girls complexes about their weight? These cancer patients already have a hard enough time eating. It’s got good intentions, but I feel like hanging out and talking, playing games rather than leaving the kid with a doll would be better off.
