A WOMAN IN COVENTRY who lured a cat closer to a wheelie bin so she could shove it inside has received death threats over her actions.

Police say she is not under their protection.

The woman was caught on tape by the cat’s owners, who had a security camera surveying the front of their home.

They released the footage on YouTube and Facebook, hoping someone would recognise the woman and identify her:

The cat, Lola, was discovered 15 hours later when her owner, Darryl Mann, heard her calls from the bin. He said she was terrified by the experience.

Initially, he thought she had gotten in by herself, because “she’s not the brightest cat”, but later he checked his video surveillance and found the culprit.

The RSPCA says it will interview the woman, but police said she will not be arrested because she has not committed a criminal offence.

WE’VE ALL HEARD and suspected that mobile phones might emit more radiation than their makers would suggest, or that mobile phone networks would admit.

Here, however, is a video we found that suggests there may indeed be more power inside your little handset than you imagined.

Lads, think about which pocket you use to store your phone next time…

It’s nearly time for your 3pm slump – so take a few minutes out of your day and watch this hilarious prank from a German TV show.

The idea is remarkably simple – they’ve set up a fake bathroom with a pane of regular glass where the mirror should be, and put an identical twin on each side.

Watch how freaked out the punters get when they can’t see their reflections…

If you like that, check out this similar idea with fifteen sets of identical twins creating a human mirror on a Subway.

TALK TO JOE – when ever you bloody well want to! As part of our weekly Tubesday feature we scour the net to bring you the best of Youtube, but this week we’ve found something a little different and believe it definitely deserves your attention.

Bob Byrne, an Irish born writer and publisher has just launched his new site Clam Nuts and he’s added two new games. One is a Joe Duffy soundboard, giving you the opportunity to put words in Joe Duffy’s mouth. You can surprise you’re Granny on her birthday with some shocking phrases from her favourite RTE star. Perhaps best not to give her a heart-attack though.

We were going to suggest a few word combinations, but frankly they were a tad too filthy for this site, so we’ll leave them up to your imagination. Needless to say there is endless fun here.

Also worth a look is the Ass or Egg game – self explanatory really, but good fun! Some pictures however, may not be ‘office friendly’.
