Friday Fun - News in Brief

In the news this week, the bird flu virus has been found in a stone marten, a weasel-like animal with a white throat patch, indicating the disease has spread beyond cats to another species of mammal.

This certainly raises alot of questions. Namely, if it has moved beyond birds, what the hell do we call it? The flu formerly known as the bird flu?

In other news, the estranged wife of David Hasselhoff, Pamela Bach, has made a domestic violence claim against the former Baywatch star.

The people of Austria have reacted with outrage at the news, deriding the allegations and criticising Ms Bach for denying the man's greatness. Hasselhoff denial is a crime in Austria that can earn you up to 8 years in prison.

And now for some of the key images doing the rounds:

With no deal for devolution in sight, George W. Bush is asked to give his thoughts on a solution to the North's woes.

As Bertie Ahern tries to justify the week-long break for St Patrick's Day on religious grounds, one man isn't buying it.

And finally, trouble brews when Bob Geldof learns that having the freedom of Dublin city doesn't actually mean having the freedom to enter any home in Dublin he wants.

That was the news in brief.
