The 12 Worst Pop Music Lyrics Ever

SHOULD the dancing and the singing and the breeding not work out for her, Britney Spears is showing signs of being a pretty good lyricist.

Speaking through the tears on a TV interview, Britney is heard to say:

“It’s bad. I’m sad.”

In your face, Chris de Burgh, who notoriously rhymed “dance” with “romance” in his seminal hit Lady In Red.

Anorak has delved into the pop archives and now brings you the 10 Worst Rhymes In Pop. Chins up, Britney, you may yet be great:

FLASHBACK: The biggest Wimbledon shocks – ever!

Tennis1 2 FLASHBACK: The biggest Wimbledon shocks   ever!THIS week’s defeat of former Wimbledon champion and current number two seed Rafael Nadal has been described as one of the greatest upsets in history.

Barack Obama and the marijuana toking Choom Gang – Ruby Dreams of My President

 Barack Obama and the marijuana toking Choom Gang   Ruby Dreams of My PresidentZOMBIE CANNIBALS are about to run legal in Barack Obama’s Chicago. The city has voted to decriminalise minor marijuana possession. Possessing cannabis is illegal. Now, however, owner will get a fine. Chicago joins Seattle, Pittsburgh and Philadelphia is approaching sense.

We’re still not there yet, though. The decision to fine and by how much will be left to the Chicago police service. Get caught holding less than 15g of weed and expect a fine ranging from $250 to $500.

The move was brought by Barack Obama’s old Chief of Staff mayor Rahm Emanuel. He was aided by Chicago police superintendent, Gary McCarthy, who said most of the 20,000 yearly arrests of marijuana possession create criminal cases that are dropped. This new way frees up police time to chase actual criminals and count all that money from fines, an estimated $7m.

So. As Chicago finds a legal way to tax illegal marijuana, we look at President Obama. Did he inhale?

10 disgusting things found inside processed food

OUR gallery of 10 disgusting things found inside processed food is enlightening. Makes you wonder what gets fished out before it reaches the consumer? What surprise have you found in your dinner..?

chicken-head


chicken head 10 disgusting things found inside processed food
Picture 1 of 10

An American mother went to a McDonald's with her two 6 and 8 -year old children. She ordered two Happy Meals with chicken for the children and a hamburger with fries for herself. While they were eating, the 6-year old was more interested in the slide across the street than in the chicken nuggets which he didn't even touch. So the mother decided she would eat them. Without actually watching what she was doing she was bringing a chicken biggest to her mouth, just when her 8-year old son yelled not to eat it. So she looked at the biggest to find that -- despite the crust, it looked just like a chicken's head.The manager offered them their meal for free and two more weeks of free meals. The mother pressed charges and demanded 100,000 dollars compensation.

Was Rudy Eugene driven to cannibalism by marijuana?

 Was Rudy Eugene driven to cannibalism by marijuana? RUDY Euguene, the so-called Miami cannibal, was only on marijuana when he attacked Ronald Poppo, eating much of the older man’s face.

The coroner’s report informs us, via the Miami Herald:

“The department has ruled out the most common drugs found in ‘bath salts,’ a press release from the ME’s office said. The toxicology testing “has identified the active components of marijuana,” the release said. “The laboratory has tested for but not detected any other street drugs, alcohol or prescription drugs, or any adulterants found in street drugs. This includes cocaine, LSD, amphetamines (Extasy, Meth and others), phencyclidine (PCP or Angel Dust), heroin, oxycodone, Xanax, synthetic marijuana (Spice), and many other similar compounds.”

The ME’s office said it sought the help of an outside forensic toxicology lab, “which has confirmed the absence of ‘bath salts,’ synthetic marijuana and LSD.” The ME’s office said that “within the limits of current technology by both laboratories,” marijuana was the only drug found in Eugene’s system.

Then they came for the clothes.

Now a court in Cologne, Germany, has decreed that circumcision constitutes bodily harm and is thus outside the a legal guardian’s authority.

The Financial Times Deutschland reports on a Muslim doctor, who, at the request of the boy’s parents, circumcised a four-year-old. The procedure did not go well. The boy needed hospital treatment.

The 1970s in photos – When sex was invented by plain people in busy clothes

THE 1970s were at the cusp of the sexual revolution. The magazines, the film reels and the go-go shows were there to put the joy into sex, which since ancient times had been functional and very possibly accidental. We’ve pulled together a collection of images that preceded the racy action sequences. One reason these cats wanted to rips each others clothes of is clear: the clothes. You didn’t have to be plain with puckered, goose-bumped, sweaty skin to have sex in the 1970s – it just helped…

The Twitter hunt for ‘racist’ Steve @Lapwnge: Ashley Cole and Ashley Young must be avenged

racist tweets The Twitter hunt for racist Steve @Lapwnge: Ashley Cole and Ashley Young must be avengedTHERE was little racism in evidence at the Euro 2012 Championships in The Ukraine and Poland. The BBC and the tabloids had warned England fans about neo-Nazi gangs waiting to murder blacks, Asians and Jews. In “Anarchy in the Ukraine – ‘Nazi’ militia train yobs to fight our fans“, the Sun showed us local thugs rehearsing for murder with wooden knives. But Ashley Young’s family sat in the stands for England’s match with Italy came home not in coffin, as Sol Campbell told BBC viewers black fans might, but on the smart seats of a passenger plane.

The message was clear: we will not tolerate those uncultured (Daniel Pudsey writing for the LSE) East Europeans living in a backward land notorious for its extremist yobs (Sun) with endemic racism (Daily Mail).

Kevin Brennan MP never was much cop at darts – do the maths

HOW bright do you need to be to be an MP? In this masterclass, Kevin Brennan, Labour education spokesman and MP for Cardiff West, says three in 10 pupils achieved good GCSEs in 1997. As any fule knows that’s “60 per cent.” As he said:

 ”It was we who inherited a weak system on maths and English from the Tories. Only three in 10 pupils, that’s 60 per cent because I know the Secretary of State is not very good at maths, only three in 10 pupils got a good GCSE in 1997.”


All funny stuff. If an Oxford graduate and former economics teacher can’t do the sums, who can?

Karen Huff Klein gets abused on a New York school bus by young fat busters

EGGED on by the State-sanctioned war on the fat, the kids on board the Greece School District bus in Greece, N.Y, set about abusing (surely, encouraging her to lose weight – ed) Karen Huff Klein, a 68-year-old bus monitor.

The most popular terms of abuse if “fat ass”. A playground wit tells her ”you don’t have a family because they all killed themselves because they don’t want to be near you.” Her son killed himself ten years earlier. The nippers knew this. They advise her that she will “die of diabetes.

It’s all pretty much the usual expert-inspired stuff, in which the fat are told to objectify themselves and their roly-poly kids, who are responsible for draining the health system of funds and killing the planet. Kids, he, they really do just pick up adult prejudices.

Jimmy Carr fluffs his lines

 Jimmy Carr fluffs his linesJIMMY Carr has become the face of the wrong-minded tax-dodger. You’d think that a satire-mined comic would revel in this, using it as a chance to be the baddie, goading the right-minded with his legally earned cash and how he and Take That are being blamed for the collapse of the financial system. “Sod it,” says Carr. “I’ve hit the easy liberal-friendly targets (women, Christians, bankers), been BBC compliant and made a mint as the on-message TV panel show stalwart.” Now I’ll do the risky stuff. I won’t be on the telly, for sure, but I’ll make you laugh.”

It gets better when marketing man David Cameron calls Jimmy Carr “not morally right”. Has there ever been better badge of honour? Wear it with pride, Mr Carr. Use it as slogan for your  nationwide tour. Jerry Sadowitz is knocking on a bit. It’s time for a new pariah.

Boston atheist vows to defy police and display poster stating all religion is fairy stories

atheist Boston atheist vows to defy police and display poster stating all religion is fairy storiesJOHN Richards, of Boston, Lincolnshire, has been told that he faces arrests if his post decrying relgions as “fairy stories” causes offence. Because anything can cause offence to those who seek it out, Mr Richards is doomed.

According to Lincolnshire Police, the 1986 Public Order Act states that “a person is guilty of an offence if they display a sign which is threatening or abusive or insulting with the intent to provoke violence or which may cause another person harassment, alarm or distress.”

That nonsense is followed by the police’s laughable lines:

“This is balanced with a right to free speech and the key point is that the offence is committed if it is deemed that a reasonable person would find the content insulting.”

WHEN tennis stars go mad:

David Nalbandian’s assault on a hapless hoarding at the Queen’s club was itself sufficient to warrant a stern rebuke and possibly even disciplinary action. But the unfortunate collateral damage – a nasty shin injury to the line judge who was seated immediately behind the advertising board – has catapulted the angry Argentinian into the lawn tennis hall of shame, and earned him worldwide notoriety.

Martha Payne uses her school dinner blog to promote the Roman Catholicism in Africa

matha payne1 Martha Payne uses her school dinner blog to promote the Roman Catholicism in AfricaMARTHA Payne was doing it for a Christian charity. The nine-year-old blogger has so far raised £70,000 for charity after Argyll and Bute Council forbade her from posting photos of her Lochgilphead Primary school dinners on her blog and then, in the media spotlights, caved in.

Matha Payne is raising cash for school dinners in Malawi. She has taken the parental advice, that if the kids in Africa are starving they can have my revolting dinner, by raising enough money to feed the children over there.

Matha scores each meal on her “food-o-meter”, giving the mush a health rating. She then counts the number of mouthfuls she needs to eat it. When it’s peas and smoked haddock the mouthful count can top 23,000!
