Costa Rica President Luis Guillermo Solis has eaten a wasp live during a media conference at an asphalt plant in Paso Real (Real Step in English). The insect entered his mouth mid-sentence.

Who is the Monkey?
In The Earth Emperor’s Eye, Ben Whittenbury regularly uses the term ‘Monkey Nuts’ to describe his neighbour, whilst Sarah twice rehearses her own playful song, ‘Who is the monkey?’  It’s curious then that a series of monkey selfies are making headlines around the world because of co [...]
