Top 10 Stories We Thought Were Funny This Week

Welcome to the AllNews roundup of the funny stories that made the round during the week.

We start with the beans palaver. Why would someone buy beans and refuse to pay till it becomes a court case? Then we have the advocacy for a woman president. We would say that is soothing and not funny funny. So the former vice president is warming up to join Arsenal FC, maybe as a coach, what do you say? And then there is the young man that stole two dogs, why? From UFC to dancing is a far cry but you have to see what the Nigerian Nightmare has in store. A wife is allowed to call here husband by any name, isn't she? But Elsie Okpocha has a message for Rosy Meurer.

How bad can a husband be to warrant bathing his tool in hot water? Worse still this wife made her husband burn himself down below. Why in the world would anyone want to stone a policeman? Just why? Well we know four folks that may have an answer. The hunter becomes the hunted in Kano as Hisbah official is nabbed meeting a married woman in a hotel. But why should that be trouble? Tell us what you think about that too. Lastly, if you are looking to marry without spending too much money you can consider marrying from and in Gumel Local Government, Jigawa State.

We invite you to come with us for the funny stories for the week. If you have think we have left some out, feel free to let us know in the comment section below too.
