Officials in an Israeli city have come up with an innovative way of tracking dog owners who allow their pets to foul the streets - DNA analysis.

Sound familiar? I wrote it in a fictional story back in March: Click here.

**********************

An elderly widow caught with £1,300 of cocaine in her handbag told police she planned to take the drug to give her “a lift”.

Tut! tut! Kids today... hmmm.

**********************

The word "phwoar" - meaning an "expression of enthusiastic or lubricious approval" - has gained official entry to the English language, appearing in the pages of the latest Oxford English Dictionary of Modern Slang.

At least it wasn't spelt "Ff-war!

**********************

A woman dialled 999 because a rabbit she bought via a newspaper advert did not have floppy ears, Central Scotland Police have said.

Apparently she was hopping mad…

**********************

An extremely rare female frog has been spotted for the first time in 20 years.

A French restaurant is preparing to add it to the menu.

**********************

Foreign Minister Alexander Stubb says Finland will probably close some embassies and other representations abroad as a cost-saving measure.

Is there a Finnish embassy in Fiji and is it also under threat?

**********************

Finland's Leo-Pekka Tähti won gold on Tuesday in the men's 100-metre wheelchair race at the Beijing Paralympics.

The Beijing Paralympics may lack the exposure of the Olympics, but it is certainoly not less important. Congratulations Leo-Pekka!

**********************

An operation began Monday to recover the wreckage of a WWII bomber from a lake at Liperi in North Karelia.

The Finnish Air Force is expected to repair it and have it back in action very soon.

**********************

Ovi is preparing to hoist the Jolly Roger up its mast for tomorrow's long-awaited International Talk Like a Pirate Day.

A full compliment of pirate-related material here on Ovi... watch this space!
