Cricketer Carpets Chichester Over It’s Bin Policy

THE news in the Tabloid Telegraph is grim and it is dirty:

Council refuses to clean up spilt bin without staff qualified to wear wellies

Egads! Know that:

A council allegedly refused to clean up a dustbin that fell into a four inch stream because no-one “qualified” to wear wellington boots was available. An official from Chichester District Council also allegedly said that ropes and harnesses would be needed to prevent workers from being washed away.

Yeah, Chichester.

And to complicate the matter: Can a celebrity ever be in hiding if they are being talked about on the cover of Grazia magazine?

Sarah Palin Picture Of The Day: The Great Trig-ger Hunt

ANOTHER day and with the new dawn arrives another picture of John McCain’s would-be VP Sarah Palin living the American dream:

At the age of 10, Sarah Palin got her very own bunny rabbit. Which means to say that she crouched down in the grass outside her family home, aimed her shotgun and blew its furry little head off

How can she lose..?

Polar Bear Watch: Narwhals For Global Warming

POLAR Bear Watch: Anorak’s look at polar bears in the news…

ON Reuters, readers learn:

Arctic sea ice shrank to its second-lowest level ever, U.S. scientists said on Wednesday, with particular melting in the Chukchi Sea, where polar bears were recently seen swimming far off the Alaskan coast.

The story is illuastrated by a picture of a polar bear – as it must be. The bear seems to be drowning in a choppy sea. Unless it’s put down first.

Ethan Persoff’s Bush-McCain Tijuana Bible O’ Porn

200808261509.jpg

 

GEORGE Bush and John McCain in Mexican, pornographic sex encounter.

Mark Fraunefelder says: “Ethan Persoff (the fellow who is covering the riot police at the DNC) has printed a special edition of his (X-rated) McCain “Tijuana Bible” to hand out to folks at the convention.

Uncivil Society reports:

Any complete account of the evolution of communications media in the twentieth century must include the Tijuana Bible — small pornographic comics featuring bootleg versions of popular comic strips and celebrities….

In Denver this week, delegates to the Democratic National Convention will have the opportunity to get printed versions of this Bush-McCain Tijuana Bible, presented as a replica of a prophetic 1934 comic from Lieberman’s Lil’ Squeezer Books. Whatever one’s moral stance regarding porn & politics, it’s a rather clever piece of neo-retro performance art.
