Here's the ever growing database of odd stories. The most recent are at the top, but you can search for anything. If you don't get a result, just try again! We can't confirm or deny any of them, but as with this sort of thing you should just take them with a pinch of salt. Hopefully you won't find anything offensive, but beware - people do the strangest things..!
