And In Other News...


Recommended Posts

We all probably see at least one weird, messed up, unusual or otherwise slightly out-there news story a day, depending on how much you watch or read the news, so here's a place to post them for others to see/enjoy/wonder about/WAT at/RAGE at/get confused by etc.

Here's one I posted in the shoutbox the other day;

Police fail - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/8233636.stm - "Nude plinth man sparks complaint"


See story, then note last line of story. Hypocrite much?

And here's 2 for today;

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/8237765.stm - Son jailed after ward gun suicide


The longer euthanasia is illegal, the more things like this will happen. Giving his son a jail sentence is archaic.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8237886.stm - Transsexual wins prison transfer


He was jailed for manslaughter and attempted rape. He used his "rights" to get the London High Court to approve a transfer to an all-female prison, despite being a pre-operative transsexual. So many things wrong here, so little time.

So, what messed-up news stories have you seen lately?
