The headline says it all.
2003-04-23 06:40:22 PM  
Legless Muslim PLO dude presents vest, triggering device to daft Scot politician. Awkward explosion ensues.

/wouldn't've been surprising

And that reminded me immediately of this photoshop by MyStIcMaRa:
2003-04-23 07:38:48 PM  
Hmm..I'll link instead
2003-04-23 07:45:23 PM  
That's my first accepted headline ever!


I feel so special....
2003-04-23 07:56:17 PM  
Love the headline, but the article exceeds my attention span.

2003-04-23 07:59:51 PM  
Way to go, Folded_Soup!!!!!!! Busted that FarkCherry.

This guy Galloway makes our politicos look a bit more dignified, comparatively speaking. I feel much better, now.

Two nutty Scottish stories in one day! I'm so proud to be a Black Douglas.

Yeah, and they call Americans uncultured idiots.

This is a genius move worthy of the rank of high prankster of all times, mind you Price Phillip comes a close number 2 on this list check das link!
Comic Genius!

the guy that wrote this was once editor of the Scottish Daily Express? well, that says all I need to know about him
2003-04-24 07:09:21 AM  
NO!!! my parents don't have sex! they're just really good friends, and I'm adopted.
2003-04-24 07:10:34 AM  
But do they have legs, Christopher_Walken?
2003-04-24 07:11:30 AM  
Erm, why don't you just back out of this thread the way you came in and don't come back until you can stay on the right topic.

"the guy that wrote this was once editor of the Scottish Daily Express? well, that says all I need to know about him"

Yep me too. Not that The Telegraph has an agenda or anything. It's strange I don't remember hearing that 'innocent until proven guilty' had been changed too 'guilty as soon as a right wing paper publishes a story on it'.

This article is the complete opposite of the one about the flamin' rat...1030 words vs 39*. Verbosity at it's finest!

Definitely not for someone who hasn't had their morning coffee, yet!

*No I didn't count each one, just copied & pasted acticles in MS word and did file|statistics.

Can you feel the pride?
2003-04-24 07:22:43 AM  
Goatman I did once, but then I got banned from the safari park for life

TsarDony: this is the pride hes referring to:

A stupid, self serving, underhanded politician? I don't believe it.
2003-04-24 07:30:48 AM  
Cormee I categorically deny ever feeling that particular pride. They just happened to be in the same nudist camp as I was.
2003-04-24 07:34:11 AM  
...and so the Torygraph/MI5 smear campaign against Gorgeous George continues.

For Solz & Dutch:

There was an air of grim satisfaction in the highest reaches of the Labour Party yesterday, tinged, it must be said,...

The minute I saw "it must be said" I began to scroll. I knew it to be a classic indicator of a grandiose writer whose manywords, each and every one, thrill the readership in his mind. Scroll complete, suspicion confirmed, one beautiful word came to mind (and I'd already had my coffee): Next!

Ku_No_Ichi Yes they have legs....I wish my comment had legs, then it would walk over to the correct thread.
2003-04-24 08:27:43 AM  
But what did he keep UNDER the kilt?
2003-04-24 08:27:44 AM  
Note that the Telegraph are being sued for libel over all this

They've got it in for George Galloway (who is a total twat, but still...)

Here's the story:
2003-04-24 08:40:04 AM  
I mis-read the headline. Where I come from, "legless" means "drunk".
2003-04-24 09:03:17 AM  
George Galloway?
Grandpa? I thought he long gone....
2003-04-24 09:03:26 AM

Well, you know what they say, once you've had a man with no legs, you'll never go back. Any experience with that Ku_No_Ichi?
2003-04-24 10:11:44 AM  
I think I'll just take the headline's word for it... *yawn*.
2003-04-24 10:18:59 AM  
It was either that or a haggis

2003-04-24 10:33:16 AM  
whoops, didn't see we already had a haggis thread there.
This guy will get rid of it for me.

Wonder what kind of lube the Brits use...
2003-04-24 12:38:31 PM  

Usually Vaseline or KY gel although, when fisting the Queen, axle grease is traditional.
2003-04-24 01:12:23 PM  
That is one of the best headlines yet.
2003-04-24 05:28:29 PM  
Thank you, thank you...
2003-04-24 07:20:12 PM  
An AWKWARD tag sure would be nice....
