Sometimes you just want to read something weird and silly...

Welcome to Debbie's Dead Donkeys!
Now for those who are wondering where the title came from...
Remember Channel 4's Drop the Dead Donkey - the satirical comedy set in the offices of "Globelink News"
Well Debbie's Dead Donkeys is a blog which reports nothing but weird, strange, odder than odd stories about everyone and their grandfather. On this blog, very simply, the weirder the news the better. (OK so really there is no direct link to the comedy but my colleagues thought it was funny and I liked the alliteration.)
My name is Debbie Ng and I am a journalist for the Loughborough Echo - a fabulous weekly paper reporting every shenanigan taking place in the Leicestershire town. I work with great colleagues and a wonderful boss who gave me the opportunity to set up this particular blog in delivering the weird news items around the globe.
For those of you know me will attest to the fact that I can be quite odd. I can only agree.
Here are just some of the things that make me unique:
  1. I absolutely love green sweets - this all began when back in high school my friends used to fight over the red and purple skittles. Me? Well I simply could not be bothered arguing and opted for the green ones instead. Thus, beginning a love affair with everything that's sweet and green.
  2. I can only eat brussel sprouts in even numbers - put it this way if I've got 11 cooking in the pan, I have to throw a 12th one in... even if it means popping down to the supermarket to buy one more!
  3. Sometimes when I can't sleep I'll recite the alphabet backwards over and over again.
  4. I have a tendency to talk and sing out loud to myself.
  5. I am happy every damn day and can't help but smile all the time.
Who wants to be plain and normal anyway? Our weirdness is what makes us interesting. On this blog, only the strangest of news and actions of the weirdest of people will get reported.
