You can't buy headlines like that anymore.

I heard he's been holding a lot in.
 
2009-10-30 1:09:22 PM  
I haven't read the article because, frankly, it sounds gay.
 
2009-10-30 1:09:32 PM  
sounds like he deserved the shaft.
 
2009-10-30 1:09:55 PM  
Why can't they just get along? Like two peas in a pod.

I used to know a Nutt.

Do we really have to have another teabaggers thread?

The guy is not stepping into line with Britain's latest moral panic over weed--good for him!
 
2009-10-30 1:11:06 PM  
Yes, I agree. Houston Nutt needs to get sacked.
 
2009-10-30 1:11:14 PM  
You call that a nut sack?

I gotcha nut sack right here.

I never saw a more Fark-ready headline. Brings a tear to the eye
 
2009-10-30 1:17:02 PM  
Hell yes. Came to fark specially to make sure this had hit the front page :)
 
2009-10-30 1:17:39 PM  
if only his first name was Harry it would be damn near perfect.

I'm surprised you think little of the thousands of Farkers and their ability to provide the lulz on a constant basis.

Until that changes, begone!

If Alan Johnson does sack the professor, there is likely to be a strong reaction from some in the scientific community who may well argue that this is an attempt to silence independent academic discussion.

Yes, I'm sure they'll get quite testy.
 
2009-10-30 1:20:19 PM  
I'm starting to think they're doing this at BBC on purpose...
 
2009-10-30 1:20:29 PM  
I submitted this with a better headline.

/"Millions of Dollars for a Sex Parade"

It takes real balls to run a headline like that.
 
2009-10-30 1:23:15 PM  
He's gone now. (new window)
 
2009-10-30 1:23:32 PM  
Nutt was pissed that they moved the pot classification to schedul b instead of c.

Sounds like the nanny state is stepping up the anti-pot jargon and scare tactics.

He's a good nutt if you ask me.

Which you didn't, but I'll tell you anyway.

/Fuk pot prohibition. Fuk it with a Nutt to the pooper.

Oh, I have faith in fark. I was hoping, in my vanity, that I would be the first. I wished to spread the joy of a genuine fark-ish moment on the BBC to the rest of you. Alas I was beaten to it, though it cheers the heart nonetheless to see such joyous occasion for multiple postings of our favourite and most fantastically endowed rodent.

Now to see if the poor bastard will be hounded to his death like the last scientist that dared contradict Labour with his "facts".

Remember proles - Facts a re meaningless! You could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true.

So it's A. Johnson that is going sack Nutt?
 
2009-10-30 1:30:36 PM  
Anatomically the headline is correct, albeit from the inside.

So, the candlemaker from UU is now playing a different type of football?
 
2009-10-30 1:32:35 PM  
And that's from the BBC! I'd expect this from the Daily Mail, but wow...that there's some high class, raise-your-pinky-and-daub-the-corners-of-your-mouth-with-a-cloth-napkin style testicle humor.

Dude. What did he do that was so bad his parents hated him from birth?
 
2009-10-30 1:36:54 PM  
I also hear he was descended from a real dick...

Can we nominate BBC for headline of the year?
 
2009-10-30 1:38:03 PM  
Teabagged!

It's official now. A blow to cannabis acceptance worldwide.
