The best news stories I've read all day

"Scientists find bugs that eat waste and excrete petrol"
Reported by Chris Ayres in The Times of London, June 14, 2008.

"Research says erect gay penises are bigger"
Reported by Hank Hyene in Salon, November 4, 1999.

Obviously, I should give some preference to the first article as it is indeed NEWS and not a nine-year-old finding linked as part of a LA Times round-up of the scientific aspects of homosexuality, particularly male homosexuality ("What does gay look like? Science keeps trying to figure that out", as reported by Regina Nuzzo, Special to the Los Angeles Times, June 16, 2008). Not to mention, bacteria that poop oil is some pretty damn good news. This is not, of course, to minimize the finding that gay men, on average, have bigger schlongs than straight men, as this is news that is obviously of great personal importance and relevance to me.
