2019 has been a year of bizarre news that have somehow, by chance or miracle, made headlines! Waking up to a new government in Maharashtra has been the most apt end to the year given the weird things that happened round the year. From Piyush Yadav’s remark of Einstein discovering gravity to Baba Ramdev teaching Arnab Goswami yoga, some celebrity faux pas have been hard to let go, this year. Here’s all the times we woke up to the most bizarre news possible in the country which made us go, “WTF!”
I ‘Bet’ You Didn’t Expect This!
At the start of November, the country woke up to the bizarre news of a man dying after eating 50 eggs. The incident took place in Jaunpur in Uttar Pradesh from what seemed like a bet between friends. 50 eggs at one go, this news was definitely gag worthy.
Egg v/s Kylie Jenner: An Egg-Celent Battle
While the Internet sometimes is a whirlwind of hate and differing opinions, on some instances it comes together to be a big family united by a common agenda. For this particular event, it was an egg that brought us close. The “world record egg” was liked 40 million times beating previous record holder Kylie Jenner who had 18 million likes on her picture.
Delhiites, ‘Run’ for Their Lives!
Delhi turned deadly for its residents when it became the world’s most polluted city with the pollution scale going way past the hazardous level. An air emergency was declared and the odd-even scheme was put into place immediately after the situation. However, that didn’t stop the residents of the country’s capital to make jokes about their miserable quality of life. Some even organised a run for school children to participate in while the city choked. Ignorance is bliss, right?
Millennials Causing Auto Sector Slowdown
If all else fails, blame the millennials for your failures! At least that’s what Nirmala Sitharaman was thinking when she decided to put the onus of the slowdown of the auto sector on millennials who choose Ola-Uber over buying cars! Sure, we are the burn out generation without proper jobs, healthcare or even clean environment. But no, please go ahead and blame us for economic slowdown too!
Brains or Boxes?
This chemistry exam at Bhagat Pre-University College in Haveri, Karnataka became something of a spectacle when they decided to put cardboard boxes on the heads of students. “Don’t cheat” was the objective, don’t police was the outcome. An apology by school authorities was issued soon after and we say, it is only justified!
Fine No More!
When a man in UP was fined a challan for not wearing a helmet while driving a four wheeler, he decided to take the matter in his own hands! How? He never leaves home in his car without a helmet on his head. This comes after the Motor Vehicles Act was amended and people across the country were fined challans for the most random things ever!
Cancer Cure Brought to You by Cow Urine!
Well, no controversy is enough controversy for Pragya Thakur who became the BJP MP from Bhopal this year. She caught attention when she made the strange claim that her breast cancer was cured because she consumed a mixture of cow products? Taking animal love to the next extent, are we?
Heights of Overpricing!
Breakfast cost these celebs a bomb! Actor Rahul Bose ordered two bananas that cost him Rs 442 and Shekhar Ravjiani ordered three boiled eggs for Rs. 1653. And then doctors wonder why people skip breakfast. Smh!
