Alice Springs, Australia -- The most trivial celebrity in Australia isn't even human. Dinky, a "musical" dingo in Alice Springs, Australia, that plays the piano, has just become the answer to a Trivial Pursuit question. Dinky beat out a man who can stationary jump a unicycle 232 times a minute and another guy who can clip 9 out of 10 toenails into a basket more than 3 feet away.
NEW YORK -- Beer advertising could be going 3-D at bars in America. A New York high tech firm has developed a system which would allow bar owners to project holographic images of icy cold beers over the bar. The technology went on display earlier this month at a bar beverage conference in Las Vegas, and could be in real bars soon, according to NewScientist.com.
SANTIAGO, Chile -- The great masters of art are being spoofed by a Chilean artist who is recreating famous paintings using G.I. Joe dolls. Pablo Ferrer's kitschy tableaus are on display at the Gabriela Mistral Gallery in Santiago, and are meant to make people laugh. The artist tells "Las Ultimas Noticias," "I think that my work has something funny about it because it shows an ironic view of the history of art."
BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil -- "The Passion of the Christ" has claimed yet another victim. A Presbyterian pastor in Brazil has dropped dead from a heart attack while watching the gruesome story of the final days of Jesus Christ. The 43-year-old pastor had rented two screens and invited his congregation to watch the movie with him. A 56-year-old Kansas woman also died of a heart attack during the crucifixion scene during a February 26 screening.
