GO TYLER!

American kayaker Tyler Bradt has set a new world record by plunging 186 feet over a waterfall in Washington State.

The only injury the 22-year-old suffered was a sprained wrist and a broken paddle as he fell for four seconds over Palouse Falls before reaching the bottom. Pictures have emerged showing Mr Bradt as a tiny speck in a red canoe perched on the edge of the falls. He was then swallowed up by the raging torrent of water which cascades down the side of the mountain. The waterfall is so high, the spray it generates causes its own rainbow. After landing at the bottom, Mr Bradt sank 20ft under the water and stayed submerged for seven seconds before he resurfaced, triumphant. Mr Bradt set a previous record in 2007 when he took a kayak over the 107-ft Alexandra Falls in Canada. But this feat was surpassed by a Brazilian rival earlier this year who successfully negotiated the 127-ft Salto Bello falls in Brazil. Mr Bradt said he visited Palouse Falls four times before plucking up the courage to tackle it. Afterwards, he said: "I have been passionate about running waterfalls for a while now. "I had come to a good understanding of what I believe I am capable of and what is possible. Palouse was a calculated decision to reach further into the unknown and make a dream a reality."

ONE HELL OF A WAY TO MAKE A WEDDING ENTRANCE


Kevin Heinz and Jill Peterson, the wedding couple filmed dancing down the aisle, have become an internet sensation after the video received six million YouTube hits. The video clip, posted only one week ago, shows the pair energetically towards the altar, preceded by their ushers, bridesmaids and groomsmen. The whole dance, performed to the tune of Chris Brown’s 2008 song, Forever, lasts five minutes and takes most of the assembled guests by surprise. The groom, 28, performs a somersault on his way to the altar and his hip-swaying bride, also 28, receives a standing ovation as she joins him for the exchange of vows. The video has already turned the couple, from St Paul, Minnesota, into celebrities in the United States with appearances on network television. It has already been viewed 6.6m times.
The new bride said only the couple’s parents were aware of the plans for the unconventional wedding march and that the dance was only rehearsed for “about an hour and a half” before the ceremony. "I'm just glad I didn't hurt myself," Mr Heinz said of his somersault. The success of the clip echoes that of British couple James Derbyshire and Julia Boggio who re-enacted the 1987 Dirty Dancing scene between Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Gray on the dance floor at their reception. The 2005 clip became so popular, with more than three million hits, that Swayze himself appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show to meet the couple.

IS HE OFF HIS CHOCCIE-WOCCIES OR WHAT!


The twists and turns of being flung around a rollercoaster in the usual way is enough excitement for most of us. But for some people - one specific, crazy person in particular - that thrill's just not enough.

Need for speed: Dirk Auer starts his descent down one of the rollercoaster's drops
German speed-demon Dirk Auer decided to take things up a level, by taking on the Mammoth rollercoaster at a Stuttgart theme park on specially designed roller-skates.
Reaching speeds of up to 90km/h as he sped around the 860 metre track last week, Auer found himself subjected to forces up to 3G as he completed the ride in just over a minute. The stunt was, he said afterwards, 'a lot of fun'.
The skates used - with wheels to grip either side of each track - were created specifically for the stunt. Each had 16 wheels, weighed 20kg, and took 110 hours to build. Stop the ride, I want to get off: if Auer was going to have second thoughts, this picture captures the moment at which it was definitely too late
If he'd fallen from the wooden rollercoaster, at the Tripsdrill theme park, it's likely that Auer would have ended up rather dead.
'This was a very dangerous stunt because there were so many factors to consider,' he understated.


'The roller caster is wooden and so unlike rides made from iron and steel there was always a chance of the odd nail or screw that would not be entirely flat. If the skates were to catch a stray nail then I could have fallen and I would almost certainly have died.'
Auer admires the scenery as he shoots round the rollercoaster at 90km/h. Nutcase.
This isn't the first time that Auer's taken on such a crazy stunt - in fact, he's made a career out of it. He holds numerous world records for his in-line skating, including the record for the fastest speed being pulled behind a car - reaching 191mph while being dragged behind a Porsche.
And Top Gear viewers might remember him for his jet-powered skating antics, racing an Aston Martin V8 Vantage back in 2007:

GERRARD LOSES IT ON CCTV


CCTV footage of the moments leading up to a fight where England footballer Steven Gerrard "totally lost it" have been released.
Grainy images from the Lounge Inn bar show Gerrard dancing and drinking with friends before he is alledged to have hit a man "with the style and speed of a professional boxer" during a row over music, a court heard today.
The Liverpool captain launched the assault on businessman Marcus McGee, 34, after the victim refused to hand over control of a CD player at a bar last year, it was alleged.

The 29-year-old was with friends in Southport, Merseyside, in the early hours of December 29 when his party clashed with McGee, a member of another group.
Today, David Turner QC, prosecuting, told Liverpool Crown Court that Gerrard asked McGee for a card controlling the CD player, saying: "Here y'are lad. Give me that lad."
Mr Turner said: "Mr McGee took offence at his attitude and the expression 'lad' and he refused. "Not many people on Merseyside, or indeed anywhere else, would refuse a request from Steven Gerrard but Mr McGee did.

The prosecution claims that after Gerrard's friend threw this first punch, the Liverpool star 'totally lost it' and launched a series of uppercuts at Mr McGee's head
"There can be no doubt that this refusal astounded Steven Gerrard.
"He walked away back to his party but the CCTV shows how much his mood had changed.
"He was no longer the centre of that high spirited party.
"He was clearly walking around pondering, musing over what had happened - about the man who said 'no' to Steven Gerrard."
After about six minutes Gerrard returned to the victim who was sitting alone at the bar and allegedly confronted him with the words: "Who the f*** do you think you are?"
Mr McGee, who was not a DJ but was in charge of music for the night, stood up to Gerrard, Mr Turner said.
The pair were head to head, he said, "in the sort of hostile confrontation that is often seen between professional footballers".
The barrister added: "Steven Gerrard had clearly lost his cool: he was angry with Marcus McGee." The situation attracted the millionaire's friends.
One, John Doran, who has admitted affray, pushed McGee away but "could not resist following through with his right elbow into Mr McGee's face", said Mr Turner.
"We say at this stage Gerrard totally lost it.
"Almost immediately after the blow from John Doran, in fact within seconds, Steven Gerrard joined in the attack with a succession of well aimed uppercut punches delivered with the style and speed of a professional boxer rather than a professional footballer."

Mr Turner said there "was no doubt" that Gerrard struck Mr McGee and said the issue for the jury to decide was whether he was acting in self defence.
He said: "Steven Gerrard is a world class footballer. He has the honour to be captain of Liverpool FC and to play for England.
"He is a star. He is Liverpool born and bred and here on Merseyside is a hero.
"Wherever you go in Liverpool and indeed in the world there are little boys proudly wearing a Liverpool shirt with No 8 and the name Gerrard on the back of it.
"We do not say that Mr Gerrard is normally an arrogant man, we don't say that he is a bully. "What we do say is that that night he just lost his self control and joined in an attack which should never have taken place. He let himself down."
The jury watched CCTV footage which showed Gerrard and his friends dancing and singing football songs and downing shots in The Lounge Inn at around 3am.
Real time and slow motion footage was played of the footballer talking to Mr McGee at the bar for 23 seconds, then Doran elbowing him, and then Gerrard throwing punches.

BECKHAM BOO-ED BY ANGRY GALAXY FANS



David Beckham did not receive the warmest of welcomes Sunday night as he played on the LA Galaxy home turf. Angry fans booed the English captain because of his five-month leave to play with AC Milan, ironically the team they were playing against. Becks is still a member of the Galaxy, but he's buying himself out of his contract and leaving us Angelenos to go play full-time in Milan. Things went from bad to worse when Beckham approached a fan in the stands during half time. Some fans say they saw David attempt to extend a hand of peace to the fan, while others accuse him of not being "professional" and antagonising the fan further. In response, the man leapt from his seat onto the pitch and attempted to run towards Beckham. Security was forced to intervene, escorting Beckham back to his team while removing the fan from the area. Besides the rowdy fan, dozens of signs hating on Beckham were apparent throughout the stadium. Clearly, he has some work to do to regain the love of Galaxy fans. After the game was over (Beckham had assisted on both of the team's scores), he assured the press that he only intended to make nice with the fan and that he understood their resentment towards him. "It's to be expected," he said. Sometimes it goes beyond it. I tried to shake one of the guy's hands but he didn't want any of it. That's the way it is." We're giving David the benefit of the doubt and believe his story that he was just trying to make peace. He usually is superly mild-mannered and we can't really see him losing his cool with just one random person.

THE MOST ELABORATE PROPOSAL EVER!


LOOK AT WHAT THIS DUDE DID TO PROPOSE TO HIS MISSUS...QUALITY!
A romantic music fan hired out a cinema to screen his own spoof video as part of an elaborate proposal to his girlfriend. Pete Simson, 26, told girlfriend Hannah McDonagh, 25, that they were going to watch an arty French film at the Watershed cinema in Bristol for her birthday last Friday. Miss McDonagh was none the wiser as she sat alongside other cinema-goers, who were actually staff and customers roped in to the plan. But after the lights came down and the usual adverts came on Miss McDonagh couldn't believe what she was seeing when Mr Simson came on the big screen in his pants miming the words to Daniel Bedingfield's pop hit If You're Not The One. The five minute-long spoof shows Mr Simson in a variety of colourful pants writhing on a bed, looking wistfully over a cliff top and walking along a beach as he mimes to Bedingfield's love ballad.

GERMAN BEER LOVER GOES DOWN THE DRAIN
A German man's love of beer proved his undoing after he fell into an open drain - and couldn't get out because of his beer belly.

Gerhard Wilder, 46, from Bochum in western Germany, was wedged so tightly in the drain that he had to be freed by firefighters. He has now pledged to stay off beer and go on a diet after embarrassing pictures of the incident were shown all over German media. A motorist raised the alarm after he went to move a car parked next to the drain and spotted the trapped man. He said: "I heard a voice saying help and at first I didn't see him. "Then I tried to pull him out but he was wedged tight. He didn't see that jokers had removed the drain cover as he staggered home." Firemen spent an hour removing part of the drain before they could pull the man free. A fire brigade spokesman added: "He did not know how the drain cover had got removed - and denied doing it himself. "After he was freed he walked home on his own - I think he was very embarrassed by it all and promised he would never drink again. He also said he planned to lose weight."

Flopping good fun at the Redneck Games

Sporting achievement takes many forms. Sure, Roger Federer might be the greatest tennis player in history, Tiger Woods the best golfer, and Monty Panesar the finest batsman - but how good are they at the mud pit belly flop?

The Mud Pit Belly Flop, as performed by Barbara 'Redneck Queen' Bailey
That was just one of the many events that made up the Redneck Games, which drew 10,000 competitors and spectators to the small town of East Dublin in Georgia this weekend. Judges awarded points to the mud pit floppers based on the size of the splash they made and the 'beauty of form' of their dive. Other events celebrating the redneck way of life included bobbing for pig's feet, making farting noises with your armpit, and spitting watermelon seeds. First started in 1996 as a counterpoint to the Atlanta Olympics, the Redneck games have grown in popularity each year.

Roy Maurice Keane: My True Story*
Stand up. Mirror. Staring. Can I do it? A moment…NO. I’m ready. Get the dog lead. Get the wallet. Focus.
“Will you be going to the shops or not then Roy?”
It’s the wife. Hands me the shopping list. On a post-it. Yellow. Like a card. Not red. Going for the ball.
“I’m not going to those f****** amateurs in Tesco again,” I tell her. “Do you think Felipe Scolari’s doing his shopping pushing a trolley with a busted wheel?”
I’m angry now, running it back in my mind…last time, the trolley, the big stack of baked beans half price, the wobbly wheel, children crying, losing control. Beans.
I’m sitting on the floor in the hall. The wife’s standing there. “Just get a pint of milk from the corner then, love, ” she says.
I get up. She comes at me. I kiss her, hard. On the cheek. The cheek was there (I think). “Take that,” I think to myself.
“Take what?” she asks. I go out of the house.
Corner shop. Corner. Defend it. Zonal. I TOLD YOU TO PICK HIM UP – THAT WAS YOUR MAN.
Milk. Milk. Focus on the milk.
“Morning Roy.” It’s Mr Patel.
“You’re a f****** crap newsagent and you’re a f****** crap person,” I say.
“Okay,” he says.
I turn and look for the milk. Stuff, money, bag. Walking again. Blind man. Dog. Stick. Can’t he see? Why can’t he see? Can’t he see that was offside? What is he doing?
I’m in the kitchen. Wife’s unpacking the shopping. She’s not happy. Teacups?
No. Shaking head.
“What’s all this stuff, Roy?”
I don’t understand. Stare.
“Roy. I’ve asked you out for a pint of milk. You’ve come back with four packets of rubber gloves, a Sodastream – I didn’t know they still made them – six biros, not one but two copies of New Scientist, a case of Doctor Pepper and 400 Silk Cut. You don’t even smoke, Roy.”
“No,” I say.
“And how much have you spent? Turn out your pockets,” she says.
Coins, notes, clank, receipt.
“Roy.”
She’s talking.
“Roy, you’ve spent 85 quid on rubbish. Absolute rubbish. What were you thinking? And where the hell’s the milk?”
Focus. Got to focus. Keep looking straight ahead. Focus.

UNREAL OR WHAT!

LOT'S OF LISTENERS HAD SUGGESTIONS ON THE SHOW TODAY AS TO WHY 'MAN IN THE MIRROR' WAS THE MJ TUNE THAT HAS CAPTURED THE MOOD AND PUBLIC IMAGINATION AND CONSEQUENTLY REACHED HIGHEST IN THE CHARTS BOTH HERE , IN THE U.K. AND U.S. OUT OF HIS VAST BACK CATALOGUE OF CLASSIC TUNES (MY FAV BEING 'DON'T STOP TILL YOU GET ENOUGH')WOULD THAT HAVE BEEN THE ONE YOU WOULD HAVE EXPECTED TO CHART HIGHEST???
Hey dave. Think man in mirror did so well cos MTV put together a montage of MJ images thru d years. its really sweet but sad! Rachel
HERE (TAKEN FROM BBC WEBSITE) IS WHAT OTHERS THINK IS THE REASON...
It failed to make the Top 20 on its first release more than 20 years ago, but now Man In The Mirror is the Michael Jackson track everyone wants to hear. Why?
Thirteen Michael Jackson songs are in the Top 40, among them his signature hits like Billie Jean and Thriller. But the biggest seller in the UK since his death has been Man In The Mirror, which failed to make the Top 20 when first released in 1988. This week it has climbed to number two.
So why is it suddenly a hit?
It's always been a favourite among Michael Jackson fans, says Matt Blank, a spokesman for the UK-based website Michael Jackson World Network.
THE ANSWER
# Its lyrics about making the world a better place fit the mood
# It wasn't a hit first time round so it feels fresh

He is not surprised by its belated success, given its elevated status in the Jackson catalogue - there was a memorable rendition by the singer at the 1988 Grammy Awards, with a gospel choir supplying the rousing crescendo, and it was the finale on Jackson's Dangerous world tour four years later. "It's quite inspirational and when people are grieving they don't necessarily want a dance one, and they don't necessarily want a slow song either, because it might be too much," says Mr Blank. "So Man in the Mirror is on middle ground. It appeals to lots of people, not just Michael Jackson fans but the general public who might not consider themselves to be Michael Jackson fans in particular." It's not a song that can be pigeon-holed, he says, because it's not pop or soul, but it's an anthem that a lot of people can relate to, especially with the world going through hard times.
Its most famous lines are:
If You Wanna Make The
World A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And
Then Make A Change
Its message, says Mr Blank, is that the ills of the world, like homelessness and suffering, can be cured if every individual makes his or her own contribution. "It deserves to be at the top of the charts and as it's always been popular among fans, it's as if they are saying: 'Let's get it the recognition it deserves.'" Man In The Mirror was the fourth single from Bad, Jackson's 1987 album, and was written by Siedah Garrett and Glen Ballard. It reached number 21 in the singles charts - a respectable position for most artists, but by Jackson's standards a low performer, when other singles from Bad were selling in large numbers. But, at times, the song has reached out to a wider audience. During Celebrity Big Brother 2007, Michael's brother, Jermaine, who was a contestant on the show, confronted housemates about the bullying of Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty. The following morning, Man In The Mirror was used as an alarm call to wake the house. A year later, it reappeared in the lower reaches of the charts after X Factor contestant Diana Vickers sang it. And since his death, tributes on television have used clips of Jackson singing it. Madonna's stage tribute to Jackson at her O2 concert also featured its lyrics.

GALLAGHER SLATES JACKO COVERAGE
Noel Gallagher has criticised the media for its "dragging" interest into the death of Michael Jackson. The Oasis guitarist then compared Jackson to the late Jade Goody via his blog on the band's official website. He wrote: "This Mike Jackson thing's dragging on a bit, innit? Who do they think he is, Jade Goody?".
WHO'S DAD?
The Sun has a picture of a "family" scene at Michael Jackson's final Christmas
- posing with his three children and the doctor rumoured to be the father of two of them. Dr Arnold Klein has also been accused of supplying Jackson with prescription drugs. The photo has emerged after daughter Paris praised Jackson as the 'best Daddy ever'.
WE WON'T BURY HIM WITHOUT HIS BRAIN
Michael Jackson will not be buried until scientists have finished doing tests on his brain. Jacko's family have delayed the funeral so medical experts can pinpoint exactly what killed him. The tests could show whether Jacko had a fatal drug overdose and if he had a history of drug problems.

MIND YOU MAYBE WE HAVEN'T SEEN THE LAST OF HIM YET...
Michael Jackson was obsessed with immortality and the idea of cloning himself, according to his former chauffeur Al Bowman.
The King of Pop reportedly attended a Las Vegas conference on human cloning with longtime friend Uri Geller, according to Mr Bowman. Mr Bowman, who drove the pair to the event in 2002, said Jackson was particularly impressed with a group called the Raelians, who believe the key to eternal life is cloning. Remembering Jackson's reaction following the conference, Mr Bowman said: "Jackson was very excited. "He bounced out of that conference like a small child. He was smiling and on a high. I heard him and Uri talking in the back of the limo. "He was talking about the prospect of being cloned. He grabbed Uri by both arms and told him, 'I really want to do it Uri, and I don't care how much it costs'." The Raelian sect, who believe the human soul dies when the body dies, believe in recreating individuals from their own genetic make-up. They have a scientific arm called Clonaid, which regularly holds fund-raisers in order to share its latest research. Mr Bowman, 50, Jackson's driver for 10 years, told the Daily Mirror he remembers the singer talking about the cloning of Dolly the sheep in Britain in 1996, saying that the singer was "totally fascinated by it". "Michael said he wanted a mini-version of himself cloned to carry on his legacy. He was hoping that Michael Jackson could live for ever," he said. The Raelian movement began after a former racing car journalist, Claude Vorilhon, claimed he was contacted by an extraterrestrial who told him – in fluent French – that humans were created in laboratories by people from another planet. The creators, known as the Elohim, a word in ancient Hebrew meaning "those who came from the sky", told him to spread the word on Earth in preparation for their return. Since then the Raelians have grown into an international movement, and are believed to have up to 55,000 members. In 1997, the group founded Clonaid, who claimed to have cloned a human being in 2002. Mr Bowman added: "I used to drive so many celebrities around LA, and so many of them became obsessed with these weird religious sects – Michael was no different. People in Hollywood are the most creative people you'll ever meet, but they're also the most stupid people around. They believe almost anything and then they hand over all their millions to these groups."

MORE KANYE AT THE MARQUEE!







KANYE LIVE AT PAVILLION LAST NIGHT!


Kanye West suprised loads of Cork music fans by turning up last night to Stevie G's Jam night in the Pavilion in Cork and performing alongside fellow rapper Kid Cudi at an intimate gig by hot U.S. supergroup N.A.S.A.! Earlier Kanye had rocked Live at the Marquee in Cork for the 3rd time but the 300 strong crowd at the much smaller Pavilion couldn't believe it when he took to the stage just after 1a.m. and rapped on his own "Gifted" track from N.A.S.A.'s "Spirit of the Apollo" album, which features guests such as Kanye, Tom Waits, M.I.A, George Clinton and more. RedFM's Stevie G, who also runs the Pavilion, was tipped off only shortly before-hand, and made sure that Kanye's visit was kept slightly under wraps. "He was basically unwinding after his show and our staff made sure he was left to mind his own business. He is friends with Sam Spiegel of N.A.S.A. and he wanted to hang out and see the show. Most of the people in the club didn't know he was there till he jumped on stage!" Stevie had warmed up for Kanye on his previous two visits to Cork but this was his first time meeting him properly. "Kanye was well cool, very laid-back and down-to-earth, a million miles from the public persona to be honest. I was pretty happy that he came down to our club but when he got up and performed I nearly hit the roof! Kid Cudi joined in too as they performed his massive "Day N' Night" tune and rounded off a terrific night for everyone who was there. Kanye's performance at the Marquee was a much more mature and rounded one this time, and everyone at the Pavilion could see the passion that the guy has for his music".

WHAT THE HELL IS THIS? WEIRD LIFEFORMS FOUND IN U.S. SEWER...


An unknown lifeform picked up by sewer snakecam in North Carolina. Believed to be of ET origin...but is it??? Answer to follow later today....tell us what u think it is by comment below....

There's something horrible lurking in the sewers beneath Raleigh, North Carolina. Sinister, pulsating, fleshy mounds of ichorous slime, which seem to be breathing in and out, and occasionally clench like a traumatised sphincter. They look for all the world like alien larvae, skulking malevolently beneath the ground, just waiting for the right time to rise up and destroy humanity by sucking out our brains. Captured by a remote-controlled sewer-cam, the video of the mysterious blobs had been fascinating and nauseating internet users for several days. But what are these repulsive growths, and what malign purpose do they have hiding amid the discharged effluent of North Carolina's innocent residents? The answer may well have been found by the Deep Sea News blog, where writer and academic Craig McClain ruled out some of the more common theories - invertebrates like slime moulds, bryozoans, and cnidarians - before consulting an expert, in the form of Dr. Timothy S. Wood, who studies freshwater bryozoans. Dr. Wood told Deep Sea News: 'They are clumps of annelid worms, almost certainly tubificids (Naididae, probably genus Tubifex)... In the photo they have apparently entered a pipeline somehow, and in the absence of soil they are coiling around each other. 'The contractions you see are the result of a single worm contracting and then stimulating all the others to do the same almost simultaneously, so it looks like a single big muscle contracting.' Tubifex worms are also known as sludge worms or sewage worms, and often live near polluted water, feeding on bacteria and organic impurities. So there you have it. The good people of North Carolina are safe from brain-sucking alien parasites for the time being, and we can all now watch the horrible video with a slightly reduced chance of bringing our lunch back up.

Irish Team World Wife Carrying champs!


Hi Dave, many thanks for the interview last week. Was great to talk to you about the Wife Carrying Competition and our background/interest in the event. Just wanted to follow up with you to let you know how we got on! The Irish Team are now seeded number 3 in the world in the relay of the world championships, and an extra prize was also scooped by myself and my partner James Kennedy for the "Most Entertaining Couple" (we were in full costume, wedding dress & tux) The Irish certainly made their impact on the World Championships this year, and will be back next year to defend the titles!

MJ REHEARSALS FOR THIS IS IT TOUR


Video footage of Michael Jackson's final rehearsal has been released. It shows the superstar practicing at LA's Staples Centre, just two days before his death. He sings and dances quite well, and organisers of his London residency say they wanted to prove he was in good shape: but what do you think?

VIRAL VIDEOS OF THE DAY - GET AL QAEDA TO ATTACK SO THAT WE IMPROVE OUR PREPARATIONS FOR ATTACK...HUH? WTF?!? OH & COPS FURRY SURPRISE..

Fox News calls for Osama to attack the U.S. Otherwise those hippies in the highest offices are going to let their guards down leaving the U.S. open for another attack. Wait a minute…

Glenn Beck nods and agrees with his guest Michael Scheuer that the only way to "save" the US (from illegal immigrants, of course) is for Osama bin Laden to succeed in detonating a weapon on America...
WHAT BLOODY SENSE DOES THIS MAKE??

OK SO ON THE LIGHTER SIDE OF THINGS..CHECK THIS MADNESS OUT!

Police got a furry surprise during an interview, when a squirrel climbed out of the cleavage of a woman they were questioning. The baby squirrel climbed out from between the women's breasts as she was in the police station with detectives in Warren, Ohio. Fortunately for us, the bizarre incident was recorded for posterity on CCTV, a still from which can be seen above. Detective Warren Mackey said he was stunned. 'No, I was not prepared to see a woodland creature in the interview room,' Mackey said. I was not prepared to see a woodland creature in the interview room. 'I kept right on talking to her and listening to her. I didn't acknowledge it at all.' The unidentified woman - who was not under arrest and was being questioned as part of a murder investigation - didn't even broach the subject of the breast-squirrel. As it climbed out of her clothes, she simply scooped the squirrel up and placed it back in her cleavage. 'I really didn't know what to say,' said Mackey. Neither the woman nor the squirrel are expected to be called to testify during the trial.
