WHO’S THE BEST? TAKE A STAB

Trash talk over a discussion on the greatest basketball player of all time led to three men being stabbed at a Pittsburgh bar last week.

An uncle and nephew, who had been at the bar for four hours, disagreed with other patrons on who was better out of Michael Jordan or LeBron James, leading to the younger family member pulling a knife.

EMERGENCY CERVIXES ARRIVE JUST IN TIME

A British man slept soundly in bed as his partner gave birth in the ensuite.

Lewis McSweeney, 22, woke up as two police cars and three paramedics arrived minutes after the birth. Worried neighbours, having overheard her screams, had called emergency services.

Each callout costs around NZ$500, meaning the cost of those incidents alone totalled nearly $50,000.

“Our advice is simple: if the ring doesn’t fit, don’t force it on,” said a spokesperson for the Fire Brigade.

: When my mother gave me my name, it was a name she couldn’t pronounce. The harsh accents of the Arabic language eluded the Pākehā tongue. Growing up, I always felt more comfortable introducing myself as she knew me—Mah-dee or Ma-ha-dee—just about anything that made me feel
