NewsDay: A political gaffe from Tony Abbott and potential greatness from an 11 ... - Herald Sun

TONY Abbott made a bit of an ass of himself and the English language today uttering an unfortunate gaffe as he attacked PM Kevin Rudd's leadership style, saying that no one can be a "suppository of all wisdom".

Mr Abbott likely meant to say repository, a place for storage, but instead referred to a drug delivery system inserted into the rectum.

"You don't get good decisions from government if all the decisions are simply made by one person," he said.

"No one, however smart, however well-educated, however experienced, is the suppository of all wisdom."

SPEAKING of balls-ups, a small fish known as the "ball-cutter" has been causing havoc among nude Swedish swimmers.

The 21cm Pacu has a set of chompers similar to human teeth and is known to latch on to unsuspecting water-goers.

Denmark's Natural History Museum has issued a warning after the fish - a relative of the piranha - was caught in an eel trap in Oresund Sound off the south coast of Sweden.

"It normally eats nuts, fruit, and small fish, but human testicles are just a natural target. It's not normal to get your testicles bitten off, of course, but it can happen ...," Mr Carl said.

WHILE that ticks all the WTF boxes, there's nothing fishy about Cerys Cooksammy-Parnell who scored the maximum of 162 on a Mensa IQ test.

The result makes her smarter than Einstein and Stephen Hawking as well as her father Dean, whose score of 142 she was aiming to beat.

The Northampton schoolgirl shrugged off comparisons with great intellects like Einstein and Stephen Hawking, saying you "can't really judge someone on their potential" but also has some huge aspirations.

"I like working with numbers, so I think I would like to work for a bank. Or even one day become the governor of the Bank of England," she told The Daily Express.

AND from the few who are selected to the chosen one - and a US court has ruled there can be only one.

Tennessee Child Support Magistrate Lu Ann Ballew has ordered a baby boy's name be changed from Messiah to Martin, saying Messiah is a title that has been earned by one person "and that one person is Jesus Christ".

The child's parents were in court in eastern Tennessee because they could not agree on the seven-month-old baby's last name.

When the judge heard his first name, she ordered it changed, so the baby is now called "Martin DeShawn McCullough".

ON the subject of God, was it a case of divine intervention that allowed a sports photographer to capture the ultimate shot of Usain Bolt.

As the Jamaican runner crossed the line in the 100m final of the World Athletics Championships in Moscow, the stormy skyline offered up the ultimate shot - a bolt of lightning seemingly striking th stadium.

The picture was snapped by photographer Olivier Morin, who works for French news agency Agence France-Presse.

WHILE Morin had to wait just 9.77 seconds for Bolt to cross the line, Apple fans face a lot longer wait before they can get their hands on the new iPhone.

THERE will no doubt be a rush on the new iPhones, with users likely to further add to the amount of time Australians spend each day using gadgets.

A report by McCrindle Research today revealed Australians spend 10 hours and 19 minutes on average each day on electronic media.

Social analyst Mark McCrindle said Australians managed about seven consecutive hours of digital media consumption a day by squeezing in screen time across their hours of work and play.

AND finally in entertainment news, the Falls Festival revealed their line-up for this year's series of gigs across the country.

Vampire Weekend, Violent Femmes, Neil Finn, MGMT, The Wombats, The Roots and Solange will tour Australia as part of the festival.
