Swedish woman finds a carrot wearing her ring lost 16 years ago

A Swedish farmer found the wedding ring around a carrot in her backyard. According to the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter, the ring was lost since Christmas 1995.

That day, Lena Paahlsson took the ring to cook the Christmas dinner, she put it on the counter and, after the meal, the jewelry was gone.

According to The Telegraph, Lena and her daughters looked everywhere for the ring, that the bride had designed herself, but for 16 years they had no success.

To their big surprise, over a decade later, a carrot growing in the backyard brought to the surface the mythical lost ring.

While this episode might seem inexplicable, the farmer from Mora, northern Sweden, believes that the ring may have been ingested by a sheep which usually feed on the leftovers of family meals.

The animal manure is then used as fertilizer for the garden, so it may have been the cause of the disappearance and subsequent reappearance of this piece of jewelry.

British bites a live frog in a chicken sandwich

When he asked for a chicken sandwich in a famous restaurant located in central London, Ross Dance was far away from knowing that this was the strangest meal of his life. While tasting the sandwich he realized that there was an unexpected ‘bonus’ inside, nothing less than a live frog with about ten centimetres.

Ross, 32 years old, was in shock after discovering that not only he had a live frog inside his ‘wrap’, but he had chewed and swallowed one of his legs.

Although upset and disgusted, the unhappy customer insisted on taking home the body of the animal for some pictures.

According to The Sun, which advances this strange news, the restaurant chain Nando’s has already announced it is investigating the case and advancs an explanation: perhaps the frog was among the leaves of pre-washed lettuce and jumped into the sandwich.

Either way, it is very unlikely that Ross Dance will put your feet back on Nando’s

Dozens of crocodiles on the loose

The owners of a crocodile park near a resort in Thailand reported that several dozen crocodiles have fled the park after the floods have hit the area. The park has more than two thousand specimens of these animals.

The park is located in Pattaya, a coastal town near a tourist resort. The Daily Telegraph quoted a spokesman for the park, who said that they had captured 28 crocodiles that were on the loose.

However, the same spokesman did not say how many crocodiles are still on the loose in the region. The park’s crocodiles vary between two and four meters long.

The floods that inundated the area on weekend caused the escape of animals in the park, and people fear for their safety while the real number of animals that are on the loose is still unknown.
