"Sex attacks blamed on bat demon"

Batman and Robin scaling a wall.

That’s the strangest headline of the day, courtesy of the BBC:

Men in parts of Tanzania’s main city, Dar es Salaam, are living in fear of a night-time sex attacker.

A BBC correspondent says the attacks are being blamed by some on a demon called “Popo Bawa” meaning winged bat.

Some men are staying awake or sleeping in groups outside their homes. Others are smearing themselves with pig’s oil, believing this repels attacks.

Well, all righty then.
