BritNews RoundUp: Spineless Hedgehog Edition

I have remarked in this space before how much the English love their animals: dogs, cats, budgies. But also the non-domesticated ones. Take, for example, Spud, a hedgehog discovered wandering in an English garden in March. Spud was suffering from various skin maladies, the worst being a lack of the spines that are a hedgehog's natural defense.

According to the Daily Mail, Spud has made a miraculous recovery. The before and after photos are priceless.

I imagine someone has before and after photos from an orgy that broke out at a 17th-century manor house in Somerset. The house was booked for a private party and the curiously-costumed guests arrived "in a fleet of Porsches, BMWs and Aston Martins," according to the Daily Telegraph. The party was pretty normal until midnight, when, said property owner Grahame Bond, who had rented out the house, the "Eyes Wide Shut"-ish orgy commenced.

"The first thing we saw was one couple at it on a window sill," said Bond. "When the haze from the dry ice in the disco room cleared we realized it was going on everywhere."

More dry ice please! Wrote the Telegraph: "It later emerged that the party had been organised by a Dutch events company which specialises in sexy 'adults-only' parties."

This just in: Madonna has bingo wings. What are bingo wings? The Daily Mail is more than happy to explain.
