Smile! A chicken gives birth to the Allah egg

Now, just to deviate a bit from my previous posts, here is a bizarre report from Yahoo News. Hmm... and the world gets weirder and weirder each day.

Chicken lays mystery Allah egg

ALMATY (Reuters) - A chicken in a Kazakh village has laid an egg with the word "Allah" inscribed on its shell, state media reported Thursday.

"Our mosque confirmed that it says 'Allah' in Arabic," Bites Amantayeva, a farmer from the village of Stepnoi in eastern Kazakhstan, told state news agency Kazinform.

"We'll keep this egg and we don't think it'll go bad."

The news agency said the egg was laid just after a powerful hail storm hit the village.

Kazakhstan is a large, thinly populated Central Asian state where Sunni Islam is a dominant religion.

And I am saying this item is weird with a wide toothy grin, since according to a recent international survey, the Philippines is the 17th happiest country in the world. Jeez.

RP 17th happiest country in survey

LONDON: The Philippines is the 17th happiest country on Earth, according to a study published Wednesday that measured people’s well-being and their impact on the environment.

The tiny South Pacific Ocean archipelago of Vanuatu is the happiest in the Happy Planet Index, compiled by the British think-tank New Economics Foundation.

Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominica and Panama complete the top five.

The index gave no specifics on the Philippines.

I think The Phillipines is a very happy and rich country such as Colombia. It's not a surprise that Colombia is on second place. Bad propaganda about our country has created the wrong image. Check why we are so happy:
