2011年奇闻异事回顾

  From dancing geckos to the ‘Thriller’ cat ? 2011 has brought plenty of smiles to readers.

  The house that looks like Hitler

  The elderly owner of an end-of-terrace house in Swansea was left bewildered when hundreds of thousands of twitter users compared his house to Hitler’s face.

  The joke became a hit on social networking site Twitter when it was pointed out that the features of the house matched the fringe, moustache and piercing eyes of the dictator.

  Neighbour Lyn Thomas, 25, said: “I don’t know why it would be designed in such a way. It is uncanny.”

  The cat is now the proud owner of cash, shares and a property empire which includes flats and houses in Rome and Milan and land in Calabria.

  The address of the cat’s new owners is being kept a secret out of fears that the newly-enriched moggy will be besieged by fortune hunters and con men.

  The dancing granny

  A grandmother from Beijing wowed viewers with her Michael Jackson-inspired dance routine on national television.

  长得像希特勒的房子

  当数万名Twitter用户将斯旺西联排屋尽头的一座房子和希特勒的脸作比较时,房子的主人感到很困惑。

  有推友指出这座房屋外貌酷似这位独裁者的脸,“长着”希特勒的刘海、胡子和锐利的眼睛,于是这个笑话就在Twitter上火了起来。

  房主的邻居、25岁的林•托马斯说:“我不知道为什么会把房屋设计成这样。看起来很怪异。”

  “颤栗”猫

  一段短视频中,一只猫抬起它的后腿,样子酷似20世纪80年代迈克尔•杰克逊在热门流行歌曲《颤栗》MV中的舞蹈动作,引人发笑。

  这只猫现在拥有让人艳羡的金钱、股份和一个地产王国,包括罗马和米兰的公寓和房屋,以及在卡拉布里亚的土地。

  这只猫的新主人的地址是保密的,因为害怕这只刚成为富豪的猫会遭到财富追求者和骗子的围攻。

  骑踏板车的狗

  一只名叫诺曼的布里犬被主人拍到骑踏板车,它用前爪搭在车把手上,用后腿推着车行进。这只20个月大的布里犬因这段视频而在网络上爆红。
