Purple Frog

Every month we collect some of the most interesting, bizarre, funny stories from the web. This month we have learned that there are some very weird superstitions in India, there are dinosaurs on the Isle of Wight and a thing called the "sea organ" exists.

Do you have any suggestions of your own? Send them to us and they might be featured in next month's post.
