  • Graham Smith...TWITTERING ONTwittering PopeI could of course make some very irreverent remark about the fact that the Pope has opened a Twitter account. But hes got something going for him for he picked up over 300,000 followers in the first 24 hours of tweeting putting Stephen Fry and others in the shade.

    I have a sneaking admiration for any 85-year-old who takes up social media but note that he has a new media department who will doubtless be handling his tweets before publication. It remains to be seen if congregations dwindle in the light of this innovation or whether many turn over in bed on Sunday morning and reach for their lap top!

    Coffin therapyNext time you fancy a lie down try a little coffin therapy! A Ukrainian man is encouraging people to lie down for 15 minutes in one of his coffins to prepare for the afterlife. Now why would I want to do that?

    The coffin maker has been in business for ten years and says the feeling is just like being in a bed. Its the same sheets and pillows with its own special aura. You can choose from one of ten coffins in a special room with birdsong, falling water and he says you go home in a completely different mood.

    Err, no thanks

    Is your man a pig?A US company has created a gift for the man who has everything - bacon flavoured shaving scream.

    J&Ds new product is described as high end, luxurious bacon-scented shaving cream and is on sale for about 9.

    Inventor Justin Esch said: There is nothing more powerful than the smell of bacon, nothing. Bacon is the smell of champions.

    Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and bacon is the best part of breakfast. Why not smell like it and be the best?

    The self-titled bacontrepreneur has also come up with other pork inspired products such as bacon roses, bacon lip balm and bacon baby formula.

    And, for those who love bacon to death, he has created a 2,000 bacon-wrapped coffin.

    Mr Esch added: Bacon is delicious, people get excited when they smell it. When you walk into a room dont you want people to be excited to see you?

    I told you they werent all locked up.

    Little lit up donkey!Hundreds of donkeys are to be fitted with glow-in-the-dark ear tags in Botswana to stop accidents on rural roads at night.

    About 500 of the animals will be fitted with the reflective tags in the north of the country where one in ten crashes is donkey-related.

    I think its a wonderful idea and also recommend the tags for those barmy joggers who tear around in pitch blackness.The UK-based Society For The Protection Of Animals Abroad is paying for the Maun Animal Welfare Society, in Botswana, to carry out the project.

    Laura Higham, outreach veterinary advisor for SPANA, said: The people that own working donkeys are some of the very poorest in Botswanas society and often have no choice other than to let their animals roam freely in search of food in the sparse desert environment.

    This practice is essential, but obviously makes the donkeys vulnerable to accidents and we hope that this simple solution will help reduce the number of collisions caused by the animals every year.

    The charities hope the project will be adopted in other parts of the country, and will be the first step towards making reflective tags a legal requirement for freely roaming livestock.

    Isnt science wonderful?
