With time on his hands, former President George W. Bush has joined Facebook. There’s not much info on the man himself, but you can enjoy wall posts like, “Oh man, do I miss Dubya” and “go George.” You’d think that negative comments would get quickly deleted. But, “Hi, thanks for causing pain throughout the world, causing wars and killing people for oil” got through. Maybe he was confused by the “thanks” bit.

A Massachusetts cleaner was sucked into a sausage machine that he was attending to. Police Lt Carole Germano said the victim was cleaning inside “a vacuum-type cylinder” that draws marinade into the meat. The machine got activated while he was still inside. He bore no obvious external scars but needed to be checked out for internal injuries.

A Persian kitten narrowly avoided death by surviving a wash and spin cycle in a washing mashing. Kimba, from Sydney, Australia, probably nestled in among laundry before the front-loading machine was turned on to a (fortunately) cold wash. The small beast emerged dizzy, frightened and wet.
