This Week

[April 12-18th, 2020] Toilet paper cake, pizza groundhogs, phonebooth pantries, and the rest of the week’s weird news from Ripley’s Believe It or Not!

Just Roll With It

While many small businesses may have a hard time keeping their doors open at this time, this Finland bakery seems to have found the key to success by creating and selling cake that looks exactly like toilet paper! This unique dessert is comprised of oat batter, passion fruit mousse and covered with white fondant. Obviously, we all need one right now.

Get A Pizza This…

It seems like we aren’t the only ones utilizing the take-out or delivery option from our favorite pizzeria during this stay-at-home order. This groundhog made himself at home in a Pennsylvania woman’s backyard and went to town with a slice of Philly’s finest. And while two dogs watched jealously through the glass door, we will admit it made us a bit envious as well.

Double Take!

This Wisconsin family farm did a total double-take when their new baby goat popped out with two heads! Born on April 5, Janus the double-faced baby goat is the newest member of the Neuske Farms LLC family. Diprosopus, a very rare condition that causes an animal to have a second face, isn’t something we see every day. Needless to say, we’ll be watching Janus videos until further notice!

Phone Booth Pantries

In Perthshire, Scotland, folks are helping out the community by turning their old red phone boxes into a “village larder.” Able visitors and passers-by are encouraged to leave donated nonperishables in the booth for anyone who may be needing them.

Zonkey Birth

What’s better than a cute donkey and an exotic zebra? A little bit of both. A wildlife trust in Kenya rescued a zebra mama after she wandered out of a national park in 2019. Several months later, this animal surprised the whole reserve when she popped out an adorable half-zebra, half-donkey foal: a zonkey, if you will.
