Her photo screams CHAV even louder, somehow.  James May is shaking his head ruefully.

She really really needs to get into pornography.

Some people say she's crazy she's got diamonds on the side of her manacle

I'm starting to hate white people now. Is that weird?

What good is the fine going to do?
I suspect government money pays for everything she does.

I'm sorry but that is so f**kin' fabulously low-rent that L-LO must be kicking herself for not thinking of it first!

No, white people ruin everything.  They deserve to be hated.

To be fair, this is a Brit girl that watches "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding," basically the continental equivalent of "Jersey Shore."  They really want to be hated.

Rufus Lee King: Nah, I've been doing it for quite a while, now. Ever since I moved to Charleston, SC, anyway.


Awww, we're not all bad, unless you only read comments in the Post and Courier and anything that comes from the mouths of any of the politicians around here.  Not that I'm a native either.

ModernLuddite: I'm starting to hate white people now. Is that weird?


Yep, but only because it's part of the comments on this article.  Don't go lumping chavs in with white people, seriously.  Hell for that matter don't go lumping them in with human beings, it's pretty insulting.

/but yeah there's plenty of other reasons to hate us white folk - just stick with the ones that don't require pretending chavs are even remotely white, human, or representative of anything but neandrathal idiocy plz

what the hell is a "council house"?!
 
2013-02-07 11:42:14 AM  
Is there a significant or even trivial difference between CHAVs and Yobbos?  They're both bound to flaunt ASBOs and exhibit the lifestyle that comes wif (sic) it.

Council housing in Britain is like public housing in America, afaik.

doubled99: what's a chav?


from urban dictionary:

Whatever their ethnic background, Chavs have a built-in affinity to hip-hop/R&B, even if they are inherently racist (see the Scottish). They see their life as glamorous and cool.

Chavs are for the most part, extremely stupid. However, some of them render a form of low cunning, which can be misinterpreted as intelligence. However this is false. A Chav has no desire to better themself through honest means nor learn anything outside of car modification.

English equivalent of the projects, but the backronym is fanciful.
 
2013-02-07 11:49:34 AM  
Huh. Been a long time since I was in sympathy with the convicted. Yeah, she's a bad person. Yeah, she may have damaged the bracelet, but if the bracelet's that wimpy, why are they slapping them on people who'd do their damnedest to break it in the first place. I figure she was just making the best of a bad situation. Isn't that what we want people to do?

A fashion-conscious criminal who tried to 'bling' her electronic tag after being inspired by My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding has been fined £140.

I no longer wish to share the country continent planet galaxy with these people. Unfortunately it's hard to think of a solution that isn't, err, 'final'.

Looking at the article, how is it that Fark doesn't have a link to the article about the man who tattooed his name on a woman he met just 24 hours before, and now they are engaged or the article on the nanny who was beating an infant
?


Yeah, I know it's the Daily Fail but still...Farkers be slipping.

And also on topic, I've got to side with her on this. If there was no rule stating you couldn't do this and the company admitted it was still working fine, I fail to see what she was "guilty" of.

You mean the man who tattooed his name on a woman's FACE!?  That was on here a few days ago. 

 
The nanny beating an infant has low comedy/comment potential and was likely left in the TF abyss.

Fair enough, though that she not only has a monitoring bracelet but desires to flaunt it with bedazzle-ry is CHAVtastic.

She is awful for doing this / thinking its a good Idea / for being inspired by "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding"
but You are correct sir. If the rules were not clear than that falls on the rule writer not the rule breaker and they need to clarify the rules.

/ though on second thought maybe someone who installs ankle monitoring bracelets shouldnt be considered a credible source.

2013-02-07 04:13:21 PM  
I assume she wasn't going to keep this ankle bracelet forever.  The company that owns it would want to re-use it.  The next person might not want a stranger's name on his/her ankle.

Someone posted that video link in a thread quite a while ago and I got it stuck in my head.  Couldn't shake it.  I've become a RubberBandits fan now.  Here are some more videos by them;  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RaaZsBxWeiQ, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkEimy0xGTk, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSorEwCM7Fw, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFdK_TBrBGs, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EYO2GffqnmI

At the top of the article it says:

Mr Big Fat Gypsy Wedding inspired her to decorate electronic ankle tag

I came in here looking for pictures of Mr Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. Disappoint.

If you ever watched Misfits and saw the character Kelly by Lauren Socha, that's a chav.

Also, what about her claim that the lady fitting the device said she could decorate it? Tacky as it is, I don't see why the culpability is falling on the girl. It seems like just a way for the state to extract a few more pounds.
