This is an on going collection of odd information I pick up from the trimedia (news papers, TV and the net) which I want to share to the world. Oddities are something unusual -- perhaps worthy of collecting; an eccentricity that is not easily explained or perhaps a strange attitude or habit- anything that caught my attention browsing the news which are funny (at least to me) unusual, strange or thought provoking which I want to share…urbi-et-orbi.

Dumber Ways To Die: Dumb Ways To Die Parody
Below is a parody of the viral You Tube Video I posted more than a month ago ‘Dumb Ways to Die’ which is an Australian safety clip for the Melbourne Metro Train. It's an online video featuring cartoon creatures killing themselves in a variety of ways as part of an Australian transport safety campaign. It went viral with almost 12 million YouTube views in a week !
It has been shared widely on social media since being uploaded to YouTube and the clip and jingle have been especially popular in Asian countries. As with ALL famous on line sensations, it has sparked parodies, spoofs and jokes left and right. Below is but one example.
