A Norwegian heavy metal singer best known for grunting lyrics about murder and mayhem has been elected town councillor of an Oslo suburb – against his will. Gylve Nagell of the group Darkthrone, agreed to run for election in Kolbotn as a favor to officials who needed to bulk up the list of candidates. To deter any would-be supporters, the heavily tattooed Nagell put out a campaign poster that featured him saying, “Don’t vote for me.” But voters did just that, and now Nagell must serve four years as a councillor. “I’m a pillar of my community,” Nagell sighs. “I’m not too pleased about. It’s boring.”

A Spanish civil servant didn’t show up at work for six years, and his absence was only noticed when he was nominated for a dedicated service award. Joaquin Garcia, 69, was tasked with overseeing the construction of a water plant in Cadiz in 2004, but decided the job was beneath him and stayed home to read philosophy. He kept collecting his $41,500 salary until city officials tried to give him an award for 20 years of loyal service – prompting co-workers to say they hadn’t seen him in years. Garcia was fined $30,300 last week for his six-year absence, but he’s appealing, saying he’s the victim of a media “lynching.”
