Denver police seek the dirty Thong Bandit

thong bandit
TO Sloan’s Lake, Denver, Colorado, where police are seeking a man wearing a thong. Oddly, police have nicknamed him the Thong Bandit, although he appears to be sporting his own knickers.
District 1 Commander Paul Pazen tells us:

“We’re looking for an individual who we have titled the ‘Thong Bandit’.  He is fully clothed somewhere in the mouth of an alley, will disrobe down to a thong and expose himself further in front of female citizens in northwest Denver. It’s a crime to expose yourself to folks. We need to make sure that he doesn’t take that next step.”

IF we’re being honest with ourselves, actors seem a bit mental don’t they? They don’t work very often and they’re the most paranoid people on Earth. Their imaginations run wild and they end up acting oddly in public.

Insane Egyptian pranksters fake a terrorist abduction

SPOTTING the difference between real jihadis and their fakers is not always easy. To Egypt, then, where the local pranksters are only pretending to be death-loving Islamists.

The victim having years taken off his life is the chap in the pink shirt – a wardrobe malfunction that is most likely a sign that he was asking for it. This one’s for the estate agents, Osama:

Woman complains about racist dog

GETTING bitten by a dog is no fun (yet, those mad berks who work for the police actively run across fields, taunting attack-dogs to have a go at their arms!), but is it less fun if that dog that bites you is a massive racist?

One lady has complained that the dog which chewed her daughter is indeed, a racist.

Readers identify the Tenby beach monster: it’s a Me-ex

WHAT is the thing washed up on Tenby’s South Beach. What is that thing on the Pembrokeshire sands? Says one who saw it: “I could see it had little hair left on it’s decomposing body.

Rabbits invade airport as animals continue quest to rule Earth

AGAIN, the Anorak stands alone as the only publication willing to tell you the truth about animals and their dead-eyed quest to overthrow mankind. You’ve read Animal Farm (nothing to do with that dubious film of the same name)? Then you’ll know what these awful beasts are capable of.

Google Maps grasses up man cheating on fiance

THE internet has done wonders for people’s sex lives, enabling them to flirt more confidently and meet other people without having to brave a bar filled with stouty burps first. However, with every silver lining is a dirty great raincloud, as one Russian lothario soon discovered.

While browsing Google Maps, a Russian lady found that her other-half was having it away with someone else. Marina Voinova, from Perm (where everyone looks like the Liverpool FC squad in the early ’80s), was looking for an address online and, when switching to the Street View feature, she saw an image of her fiance cuddling up to another woman.
