Totally bizarre

Today we had two really crazy stories to report.

Now this is hard to imagine but absolutely true.

A male stripper from Wigan, Mike Stratton, who’s stage name is THE HUSTLER, along with his team – THE DREAMBOYS, were booked to perform the “Full Monty” at a woman’s funeral in order to fulfil a request in her will to re-enact the iconic dole queue routine from the classic film of the same name. The will stipulated that the routine had to include the Donna Summer “Hot Stuff” routine.

Mike approached the woman’s son at the church to confirm that those attending the funeral were fully aware of what was to happen, only to be told that only a couple of people knew.

 So picture the scene,  people were crying, saying what a wonderful person she was, when her son suddenly got up to announce that his mother had a great sense of humour, as “you’re all about to find out”.

At this point the music started, the team walked up to the coffin, two on either side of the casket,  and much to the astonishment of the 250 mourners in the church, launched into their routine. 

The performance was apparently greeted by the gobsmacked audience with a smattering of applause, after which the team hi-tailed it home at a rate of knots!

Meanwhile over in New York, it appears that a gang consisting of three robbers managed to get away with US$300,000 which had been left unattended on the bumper of a Brinks Mat armoured truck.

To add insult to injury, one of the robbers even asked the driver of the Brinks Mat truck for directions so they could better make their escape.

It is reported that the company is  now working with law enforcement officers to and track the men down.

All being well I’ll see you again tomorrow,
Scott
