We bring you a fresh collection of some the most Weird, True and Funny News from the across the globe.

A man is reportedly so scared of Kardashians that he vomits with disgust whenever he watches Kim semi-naked.

Mike Amess, who is retail assistant, said that he feels queasy and unstable whenever he hears the sound of the Kardashians' nasal voices or he catches a glimpse of them on screen, the Mirror reported.

Amess, who is a gay, said that he downloaded the reality star's sex tape that sight of her writhing around with her huge bum and the sound of her high-pitched howling repulsed him and he had burst into tears at the end of the tape.

The retail assistant said that every website or magazine has them plastered all over and though he really enjoys reading the news but he doesn't go near if he sees the 33-year-old TV personality's picture on the cover of a magazine or plastered on a website.

British law student Vanessa Knowles, 25, has fully funded her 14000 pounds law degree by stripping in front of a webcam for her online admirers, Mirror reported.

The semi-nude model gave lap dances and posed for "lads' mags" for years, the report added.

She then decided to enroll in the law program at a London university and strip part-time to cover the costs. "Some of my lecturers know what I do and make cheeky jokes but I wanted people to be impressed by more than just my breasts," she told the Mirror.

The curvy brunette can also afford to live in a flat in central London and wears designer clothes.

Knowles said her thousands of followers have been supportive of her studies, and some have even forked up more than $3,300 for her school books, the report added.

A hair salon in west London put up a giant poster of the North Korean leader in its window after reading unconfirmed media reports that men in the isolated Asian country had been ordered to have the same hairdo, the report added.

The promotional poster read: "Bad Hair Day? 15 percent off all gent cuts through the month of April."

Meet Jack, the beer-swilling, curry-eating rock and roll fan -- and parrot.

Owner Norie MacKinnon, of East Kilbride, Scotland, has had the blue and gold macawsince he was three months old and describes him as his soul mate, Morror reported.

Now six years old, Jack loves popping down to the pub for a pint with his owner -- but his favourite activity is grooving along to his favourite band, Status Quo, the report added.

"We've just bonded together, we go everywhere together -- as you can see he comes to the pub with me and he goes out in the car with me," said Norie of his favourite wingman.

"It's been a lot of work... it takes a lot of work to get him as tame as he is at the moment,” adding “He's a bit of a party animal, actually, he likes his music”.
