UCC lecturer has sanctions quashed

It’s really more about the nut graf here.

"A lecturer at University College Cork has won a High Court order quashing sanctions imposed on him following an inquiry into sexual harassment allegations made by a female colleague to whom he had shown a paper on the sex life of fruit bats."

And really, it’s about the title of that paper.

"The case centred on an incident on November 2nd, 2009 when Dr Evans was passing by Dr Kennedy’s office and showed her a scientific paper entitled ‘Fellatio by Fruit Bats Prolongs Copulation Time’."

In Japan, it’s starting to eel a lot like Christmas

Why string lights on a Christmas tree when you can use electric eels? And for that matter, why hug a person when you can hug an eel?
