Iran makes almost one mile long ostrich sandwich

Cooks in Iran have tried to assemble the world's largest ostrich sandwich at a food festival in Tehran, as part of a bid to promote healthy eating.
The organizers want to promote Iran's fledgling ostrich farming business.
About 1,500 cooks used 1,000kg (2,200lbs) of ostrich meat to make the 1,500m (4,920ft) long sandwich.
It took two days to prepare the sandwich, and a huge measuring tape ran the length of the table on which it was sitting.

That was no tiger — that was Tigger!

A tiger that surprised a North Devon cyclist has been tracked down and it's just a big old softie.
Last week the police were contacted by Adam Dobby after he saw what he took to be an adult tiger in the back of an estate car.
Mr Dobby, a teaching assistant, was convinced the animal was real when he saw it in Bideford in a car near the Heywood roundabout.
The Bideford College employee said the animal was lying down in the back of the car, which had no cage, and its head was definitely moving.
But after seeing the article, Terry Western from Clovelly contacted the police and confirmed it was his tiger and it was only a toy.
He said: "It does look very real and almost everybody does a double-take. I have always kept the tiger — who is called Tigger — in the boot of my car. It is just nice to show him off. I have another one called Toby who lives on my porch."
Terry, 69, was given the tigers about five years ago because he loves the animals.
He has previously been to Thailand where he was able to meet tiger cubs.

Two Women Shocked to Learn They Are Sisters

Two British women who have known each other 30 years were stunned to discover they are sisters.
Deborah Day was adopted when she was two months old — separating her from big sister Marilyn Morris.
They met again as teenagers working in a supermarket and became friends — but had no idea they were related.
They lost touch again but the truth finally came to light when their oldest sister Sally Griffiths launched a search for her lost family.
At a reunion Deborah, 44, and Marilyn, 45, were shocked to discover they were more than friends.
They live within a mile of each other in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset, and even send their children to the same school.
"When we worked together we realized we were similar," Day said. "But I never imagined Marilyn was my sister. We’ve got years of catching up to do and we’re enjoying every minute."
Marilyn added: "Debbie and I look so alike. It’s wonderful because we have such a great family now.
