LIKE WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication It's Good to Have a Hobby Key West, Florida's annual Conch Shell Blowing Contest took place in March, with Carol Whiteley of Ontario, Canada, winning the women's division and Brian Cardis of Macon, Georgia, taking the men's top prize. Entrants of all ages were judged on quality, novelty, duration and loudness, the Associated Press reported. Michael and Georgann Wachter from Avon Lake, Ohio, impressed the audience with a shell and vocal duet of Elvis Presley's "Hound Dog." Whiteley said she toots her shell to celebrate sunsets at her home. Time to start practicing for next year! Bright Idea In China, women modeling lingerie for online retailers violates the country's rules about spreading obscene material, Insider reported. Instead, underwear companies are hiring men to model the clothing — and it's working out better than you might think. "The guy wears it better than the girl," one online commenter posted. Others argue that the restrictions are "depriving women of job opportunities." "We don't really have a choice," said one business owner. "The designs can't be modeled by our female colleagues, so we will use our male colleagues to model it." Fine Points of the Law Natalia Harrell was arrested last year in Miami for allegedly shooting and killing Gladys Yvette Borcela as they rode in an Uber. Since then, she's been in the custody of the Miami-Dade Corrections Department — along with her unborn child. Now, Michael O'Brien, the father of the child, has filed a petition claiming the baby has not been charged with a crime and is having its due process rights violated, NBC Miami reported. "I don't want the baby to be born prematurely or low birth weight," O'Brien said. "The conditions (in the jail) are terrible and I feel she's not getting the prenatal care she should be getting." He seeks the baby's immediate release. Officials are reviewing the care Harrell has received "to ensure that all prenatal care being provided in our custody is appropriate."
