Beer brand and leather store unwittingly named after Māori word for 'pubic hair'
Canada’s Hell’s Basement and a shop in Wellington both thought the word ‘huruhuru’ meant ‘feather’ – they were wrong

A Canadian brewery and a leather store in New Zealand have found themselves in a hairy situation after using te reo Māori to unwittingly name their respective brands after pubic hair.

Seems a rural doctor has tested positive for Covid-19 at Argostoli Hospital, it's thought he caught it from one of those from Skala who tested positive. Other medial staff at the hospital being tested.

Cheeky boar leaves nudist grunting in laptop chase

A nudist in Berlin got too close to nature for comfort when a wild boar snatched his plastic bag - which had his laptop inside.

The naked man gave chase to the boar and her two piglets - much to the amusement of fellow sunbathers.
