Wilsher was given a 12 month conditional discharge

That's a lot of semen.

Henry Willsher, 26, of Bath Road, admitted two counts of common assault at Reading Magistrates'
Court yesterday.

Prosecutor Luke Bulpitt said Willsher went wild when he returned to his former home after a night out.

He said Willsher punched Hayley Cartwright before pulling Mark Tornqvist's beard off.

Pulling someone's beard off is common over there? Wacky Brits.

At least it wasn't his pubic hair. Ouch!

It is getting dark. You will likely be eaten by an arguement.

A woman is a sinister, lurking presence in the dark places of the earth. Its favorite diet is either adventurers men or lesbians, but its insatiable appetite is tempered by its horrible fear of light (see wife/gf first thing in the morning). Men who argue with women have never again see the light of day.

Women have sharp claws and fangs, and an uncontrollable tendency to argue. They are certainly the most evil-tempered of all creatures; to say they are touchy is a dangerous understatement.

/Grue = woman? description fits fairly well

I like the e.

He punched a woman in the face. Finally something about Britain that I like.

I thought this was going to be hirsute porn.

"Wilsher was given a 12 month conditional discharge and ordered to pay compensation to Miss Cartwright of £250 and £150 to Mr Tornqvist."

Huh-huh discharge.
2003-02-14 09:56:45 AM  
I like the headline, but it doesn't really justify this nothing of an article. Ouchy, yes - interesting, no.
2003-02-14 09:56:52 AM  
Please stop pointing out spelling mistakes. It is not clever or funny.
2003-02-14 09:59:30 AM  
You mean neither clever nor funny...

Sorry, I just had to...
2003-02-14 10:01:56 AM  
That sort of thing is why I will NEVER have a roommate.
2003-02-14 10:02:31 AM  
It's not funny or fun.
2003-02-14 10:08:57 AM  
Could be worse...my grandma and grandaunt were arguing about who did more chores on the farm when my grandaunt was on her *deathbed.* Fifty years later, still simmering.

(the above was an accurate re-creation of ripping off a beard. All the above performed while jumping up and down)

Having had some psycho roommates over the years (NO ROOMMATES, EVER AGAIN!!), I could see this happening. But to literally rip someone's beard off!!! That's gotta hurt... Whatever happened to the usual, ya' know, trashing the person's stuff. Ripping off someone else's body hair is a bit over the top.
2003-02-14 11:25:27 AM  
Irascible LMAO!!! that is funny as hell
or maybe i need sleep

why do i find hell funny anyway?

what really struck me as funny about the article is that the guy who got the fist in the face got 1oo punds more than the guy who had his GOD DAMN BEARD TORN FROM HIS FACE.
fark that would hurt
2003-02-14 11:33:32 AM  
what the hell is wrong with people when they break out into an argument over the spelling of argument...

oh yeah...I forgot there was an extra 'e' involved...goddamn dirty extra 'e's
2003-02-14 11:53:39 AM  
anyone with a beard can reasonably expect that sort of treatment
2003-02-14 12:29:53 PM  
Well it was in Reading. Lovely place.
