This giant pearl could be the biggest ever found in the world - after being handed in by a FISHERMAN. See SWNS story SWPEARL; The man, who has not been identified, found the priceless 34kg gem ten years ago in sea off the coast of Palawan Island, Philippines. He didn't know the potential eye-watering value and kept it as a 'good luck charm' in his rundown wooden home. But a fire at the property earlier this year forced him to have a clear out and move house. To paraphrase Samuel L. Jackson….”What’s under YOUR bed?”  Click here to read the story>>>

PRESPOLL  So here’s the updated results of our very scientific “Presidential Preference Exit Poll” … for the past 3 weeks we’ve been sending Porkchop out once a week to set up along a busy exit ramp (or street), to ask people to honk their horns either once for Trump or twice for Hilary. We’ve switched the honking votes from week to week in the interest of fairness, and Chop has a sign that tells the passing drivers how to vote. Here is the rolling results of this very scientific process … and we still can’t believe that ‪#‎FoxNews‬ or‪ #‎CNN‬ hasn’t asked us for our weekly results!
