    WikiLeaks: Five more of the strangest stories to emerge

    The WikiLeaks cable dump has uncovered a lot of downright serious allegations: that the State Department pressured Germany into not criminally investigating the CIA's kidnapping of one of its innocent citizens, that the British government secretly allowed the US to keep cluster bombs on its soil in defiance of a treaty, that the US manipulated the Spanish criminal justice system in its investigation of the CIA's torture of its citizens, and so on. And it also uncovered some very weird stories.

The leaks keep coming. Here are five more of the oddest stories to come out of the leaked State Department cables.
