AROUND THE WORLD (FOX44) – England, Englanders are angry about their economy and they are singing about it. They are expressing anger at the Bank of England, which is like our federal reserve. The singers blame incredibly low interests rates for the country's rising inflation.

China – Pigs all over the highway here. The truck carrying them overturned and created a one big nightmare on the roads. Police were forced to close off a stretch of the highway to capture the pigs and put them on a new truck.

Norway – There's a butter crisis here. It’s so scarce; it sells for 20-bucks a pound. That’s 4-times its normal price. A new low-carb diet that is sweeping the country is partially to blame. But people are getting desperate for butter as they get ready to do some Christmas cooking.

Guatemala – Setting fire to Satan is a century’s old tradition. It’s so believers can chase away bad spirits from their homes and neighborhoods. With bonfires and fireworks they burn devil shaped figures to do so.

United States – A big ole beehive is the buzz of one neighborhood.

That's because it’s messing up their lives. No one knows where the homeowner is and it hasn't been removed. People are avoiding the whole street altogether so they don’t get stung and that includes the mailman.

Tune in every night at 9:00 p.m. on FOX44 New Baton Rouge for more Around the World.
