I'm a big fan of Ghandi, myself. That's why you often find me screaming at people in the supermarket.

Here's a hint, big fella. If someone is taking your picture with their phone, they're not paparazzi.

Paparazzo--it's the singular.

I kind of like this logic. If one sees a hipster irreverently wearing a Ramones logo, for instance...

NEVAR FORGET: The day Fark actually sided with Russell Brand.
 
2012-03-15 01:44:55 AM
First Russell Crowe. then Russell Brand, what is it with these phone throwing Russells?

What kind of a name is Russell anyway? Sounds like someone in a tree.
 
2012-03-15 01:51:01 AM
D) He's a talestless asshat
 
2012-03-15 01:51:29 AM
Why not link to the more recent article saying that a warrant has been issued?

Post Katy Perry boob-withdrawal symptoms.

he married katy perry to get nail tips, because there's no way he had sex with her.

/she said she'd save it for me until after the cervix
//no no that was Zooey

I find it amusing that the origin of the word Paparazzi was a movie character named Paparazzo. How much more self-referential can you get?
 
2012-03-15 02:03:21 AM
A paparazzo with an iPhone in close proximity to Russell Brand? I'm surprised anyone could survive the toxic levels of smugness that had to be filling the area.

/ paparazzo is, in fact, the singular form of the word (new window). Learned me something new today.
 
2012-03-15 02:08:49 AM
I'm just surprised this guy's 15 minutes aren't up yet.
 
2012-03-15 02:40:38 AM
I approve of the iPhone being thrown through the window.

I disapprove of the part where Brand separated the iPhone from the paparazzo first.

Kurmudgeon: I'm just surprised this guy's 15 minutes aren't up yet.


It's tradition for washed-up celebrities to create "news" like this to get featured on TMZ or other tabloid sites. They don't give a shiat if your 15 minutes are over, they have an article quota to fill.
 
2012-03-15 03:40:43 AM
I had to look up who this guy was and I'm still not sure I've ever seen him in anything.

/getting old I guess
 
2012-03-15 03:41:54 AM
Brand has since offered to pay for the window he broke.

Um, that's not how it works. If you commit a crime, your penalty is more than just paying for whatever you damaged.

I think this was a funny response.
 
2012-03-15 04:08:35 AM
An appropriate tribute, since I too wanted to throw Steve Jobs out a window.
 
2012-03-15 04:31:59 AM
Anyone can honor Jobs who wants to for all I care. I'm just hoping that if reincarnation is real, he comes back as a foxconn employee for his next, oh lets just say, three or four lives. Nah, better make it five, the suicide rate is still pretty high, wouldn't want him sneaking out on his just reward.
 
2012-03-15 05:42:29 AM
He must be a legit pap if he uses an iPhone.
 
2012-03-15 06:08:18 AM
You guys realise that tweet was a big piss take, right?
 
2012-03-15 06:20:02 AM
i can empathize. after all, as an admirer of voltaire, i often smash mailboxes and smear shiat on the cars of my neighbors.

1. Nobody cares of what you approve of.

Sorry, this is Fark you're dealing with.

Teufelaffe: / paparazzo is, in fact, the singular form of the word (new window). Learned me something new today.


It's a pretty safe bet that if the word is Italian and masculine, the singular ends in "o" and the plural ends in "i" (feminine is "a" and "e"). There are, of course, exceptions.

Um, that's not how it works. If you commit a crime, your penalty is more than just paying for whatever you damaged.


It is if no charges were filed. If someone throws a brick through my window, I don't automatically have the person arrested. If they refused to pay for the damages, then I would get the law involved.
 
2012-03-15 08:01:47 AM
You know, as long as he didn't hurt anyone, that's funny.

/if he hurt a papparrazi it would be hilarious
 
2012-03-15 08:16:04 AM
I just paid tribute to Jesus by yelling at a gay guy.

At least, I assume he was gay. Hard to tell when everyone's naked.
 
2012-03-15 10:07:42 AM
If I had a nickle for every cell phone I've tossed away from its owner or smashed, I could afford a cell phone.
Most of the douches were wearing cargo shorts, too.
Somw were dates (first and last) that wanted to yak.

Katy Perry still can't wash out all the smegma from her body after being married to this dirty looking dude.

Hey, at least he offered. You know, maybe I'm not like the rest of the douchebags in the world, but if I took some famous person's picture and they got pissed off, I'd apologize to them. Presumably I'm a fan, so I'd feel even worse about it. I'd ask him to get my phone back, or replace it, but I'd still apologize. If the famous person was a dick THEN, I might think about going to the police. And I still doubt that I would.

Lot of entitled motherfarkers running around the world today, and a lot of the time they show up in threads like these, announcing how they have the right to stalk famous people and treat them however they want, because they deserve it for being famous or some farking thing. I wouldn't like it if random people took my picture all the time, and even well-known people should be able to leave their houses without the risk of their pictures being sold to the tabloids because they filled their cars up with gas and weren't wearing make-up.

Black guy steals phone and throws it, no charges. White guy steals phone and throws it, warrant for arrest......

RACISM!

Yeah but let's not act like that would stop any of us from banging those titties, hell I may even let her play her music while farking......

Well maybe that's too much punishment.....for me.

Don't you mean Gerard de Nerval?

I like how a "dick move" is enough to generate an arrest warrant by the NOPD. Hopefully they'll give this issue the attention it deserves! We can't have paparazzi, iphones and lawyers all being damaged! Throw the book at him!

/hope he gets off with a fine

Well, it is technically vandalism.

I was lonelier than Kunta Kinte at a Merle Haggard concert
That night I strolled on into Uncle Limpy's Hump Palace lookin' for love.
It had been a while.
In fact, three hundred and sixty-five had come and went
since that midnight run haulin' hog to Shakey Town on I-10.
I had picked up this hitchhiker that was sweatin' gallons
through a pair of Daisy Duke cut-offs and one of those Fruit Of The Loom tank-tops.
Well, that night I lost myself to ruby red lips,
milky white skin and baby blue eyes.
Name was Russell.
