India Is Still Pissed
India is now examining American diplomats and their families employed in India to see if they are violating any of their host country's labor laws. Tune in the bitch slap in three, two, one...
NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India has sought details about staff in American schools in the country for possible tax violations and revoked ID cards of U.S. consular officials and their families, retaliatory steps for the arrest of an Indian diplomat in New York.

[...] An Indian government official said on Friday that New Delhi had asked the U.S. embassy to provide details about people working in American schools and other U.S. government facilities to determine if they had permission to do so and if they were paying taxes that are mandatory under Indian law.

Diplomats' spouses who take up work in schools or other embassy facilities are supposed to inform the host country.

Violations of this kind had often been ignored, but now India would not turn a blind eye, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The U.S. embassy declined to comment on the latest steps.
Apparently the Indian government is not adverse to rubbing curry on an open wound. And why do they call themselves Indians?

No Beer, No Mercy!

It's the squirrel for you!
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina authorities say a 44-year-old woman angry at a man for returning home without beer on Christmas beat and stabbed him with a ceramic squirrel.

The Charleston County Sheriff's office says in a report that deputies found a man covered with blood when they arrived at Helen Williams' North Charleston home early Wednesday. She told investigators the man fell and cut himself, but couldn't explain why her hands and clothes were also bloody.

Deputies say the man said Williams was so angry when he returned without beer because stores were closed on Christmas Eve that she grabbed a ceramic squirrel, beat him in the head, then stabbed him in the shoulder and chest.
I always keep a well-sharpened squirrel on my nightstand to fend off anyone breaking into my home. Take it from me, it has worked incredibly well as I have never suffered a home invasion.

When Flying Pigs Glow in The Dark

Finally, a true piggie night light.
Chinese scientists have created the world's first glow-in-the-dark pigs that emit a fluorescent green light.

The piglets acquired their bizarre ability to glow under 'black' or UVA light after their embryos were injected with DNA from a jellyfish.

Experts claim that the 10 young animals should live as long as any other pig and that the findings could help develop cheaper drugs for humans.
Never at a loss for words, now I can finally say that bacon will suddenly be a lot easier to find when buried in the fridge.

I wonder if it will still be glowing when it comes out? And will the carp that hang out by the sewage treatment plant begin glowing, also?

You have to ask yourself what kind of mind comes up with injecting a pig with jellyfish DNA in the first place.

Gorges - Maybe different colors for different cuts of meat, err animals?

Odie - it's the Chinese. These people eat things that would gag a dog. Watch for Chinamen with glowing penises next.

Sooner or later ALL the food in my fridge glows! Penicillin anyone?

Subvet - we'll have to make sure they rename hotdogs as kosher glowsticks.
