Former chess supremo and Kremlin critic Garry Kasparov must have felt like a pawn in a larger political game after a speech he was giving last weekend was interrupted by a radio-controlled flying penis.
The below-the-belt disruption is thought to be a real world copycat version of a similar, virtual attack perpetrated in December 2006 by cyber vandals in the multiplayer online world ‘game’, Second Life. According to the Moscow Times, the prank was staged by "a couple of pro-Kremlin Young Russia activists".
Around 500 fellow opponents of the Kremlin were in attendance for Kasparov’s address to unite opposition political forces at a rally in Moscow when the helicopter rotor-assisted member made an unscheduled appearance.
The unconventional chopper buzzed around to spatterings of applause for around 20 seconds before a minder bashed it to the ground.
Donkey jailed for assault and battery.
Seems as if the law is an ass in southern Mexico after a donkey has been banged up in a human jail for biting and kicking two men near a ranch in Chiapas.
Officer Sinar Gomez said: "Around here, if someone commits a crime they are jailed, no matter who they are."
Police said that it took six men to subdue the buck-teethed bruiser on Sunday after it bit a 63-year-old man in the chest and kicked another man, fracturing the 52-year-old's ankle.
Promising that the assaulting animal will stay locked up until owner Mauro Gutierrez coughs up for the men’s medicals bills, Officer Gomez did not confirm whether he was prepared to wait donkey’s years.
In March, a bull was incarcerated by Chiapas cops for eating corn crops and destroying two vending stands.
Central coast NSW. OZstrayer, Our former State member of parliament gets a minimum of nine years in the slammer. His pedophile activities were well known by his colleagues prior to his arrest early last year. Today Morris Iemma the State premier was passing the hat around( nothing less than $100.00 bills) accepted for the benefit of former MP Milton Orkopoulos's family, who have fallen on hard times having sold their property since his arrest.
For many years prior to migrating to Strayer, my family lived near Portsmouth ( Pompey)where 'er indoors' was born.
Fratton Park was the home ground for the Portsmouth football club (or Soccer; an Oz cliche)
I reckon the last time I went there 40 years back I could name most of the players in the team.
Not any more mate, now watching them beat Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup Semi Final had me confused as I had not seen the teams before as I am not an avid soccer follower.
Blackburn Rovers had Six coloured players in their Eleven, but Portsmouth could only manage One White guy in their eleven; the goal keeper; who, apparently was a foreigner too.
I shall probably get hit with a 'Racist bastard tag for noticing the old home town ain't wot it used ter be.
Today I spent time in the garden farting around doing silly things also getting some fresh air and exercise, it had rained overnight so all the watering had been done-so I did a bit of weeding,
planted veggie seeds and fed the visiting 'One legged pigeon'.
I am not altogether yet, but hopefully in a couple of days I'll be back visiting you all again.
Ta fer now Vest.
