legal arguments over a bloody fart program.... there can't be that much call for them... can there?

Joker must retire, insist Heath Ledger fans

Paul Segrue

is the best an actor could ever do???

Eh what the....? ODFO is the first thing that comes to mind... do these people have a life? do I considering that I am writing this... yes I do cause I am sciving :)

I thought his performance was overrated and only got so much praise due to the fact he died after filming... ok some bits were good but most of it was much lower than expectaion, come to think of it I thought a lot of the film was overacted and left the cinema slightly disappointed that I had paid to see it if I am honest.

I am sure the character can be played better than it was (I am a fan of Jack Nicholson's portrayal of the Joker anyway) and would anyone be saying "retire the Joker" if Heath Ledger had not killed himself with an overdose/died by misadventure (depending on what you believe)?

I would rather a character continue rather than be linked to overrated performance simply because the actor died. I wonder how many of the people calling for the retirement are fans of the Batman films etc or if they are simply Ledger fans...

Oh damn I seem to have let slip a geeky side to me... I mean... I really don't.... oh sod it I will just grab my coat!

Zombies are easy to deal with without guns

Grab a bat, jump in the car make sure the family is ok, batter a couple of zombies, pick up the girlfriend, batter a few more zombies, get back in the car, hole up in the local boozer, have a nice cold pint, and wait for all of it to blow over.

How's that for a slice of fried gold!

Thanks to Shaun of the Dead for teaching us that zombies are infact slow moving monsters and shooting them just ain't sporting.... get in there crack a few heads and sit back for a pint, thats the best way :)

Father of Playmobil dies at 79

Thumb Up


Some El Reg items kick off the usual banter and bikering, we all have come to expect that and sometimes things may go a bit far but I do think Sarah has now given everyone a new way of shutting up pedants and for that deserves much praise...

RIP Hans Beck, The King of Playmobile is Dead... I am sure Reg will keep the Playmobile dream alive...

Trigger-happy Welsh cops taser sheep

Paul Segrue


lol I saw that coming,

My remarks were aimed at the people who cry absolute outrage at these things, the hypothetical comments were simply to say that if (yes if) they had happened the same people crying out for the police to be punished for animal cruelty would be complaining equally hard about police incompetence in not clearing the road.

It was less a comment about the rights and wrongs of tazering a sheep and more about the hypocrisy of some people who will always complain about some aspect of a event without knowing the full details (as indeed I admit I was not there and also do not know the full details myself) but it does not hard to figure out that the Police priority would be safely clearing the roads of cars.

If I was unable to make this clear to people this is what I was trying to convey then I apologise and take my place standing in the corner facing the wall :)

Paul Segrue

yes its a sheep but...

Personally I would rather a sheep get stunned and then moved away than left in the road, (I was going to say for a 4X4 to run over but seeing most of the driving abilities of 4x4 drivers.... no I wont start that one...)

Ok this is a bit extreme but what if the tail back caused delays to the fire or ambulance services getting to a call and one or more humans died, its more than likely that the same people that are crying out about mistreatment of an animal would be complaining equally as hard about the lack of action by the police in clearing the road quickly allowing traffic to flow. Or if the officers were unable to prevent a violent attack because they were chasing a sheep around whilst simultaneously trying to ensure it was not being psychologically disturbed by the traumatic experience.

I see nothing wrong with the act myself, but if you insist then why just blame the police, you could blame the farmer for having the audacity to allow the sheep to escape, or blame the person who put up the fences.... even better the person who made the fences in the first place, they can surely be blamed for something too...

Or you could just realise that sometimes sh17 happens, someone’s got to deal with it and who you gonna call???

US man cuffed for executing lawnmower

Paul Segrue


Hate to point this out.... (although to be honest I dont.... its been one of those days at work)

"had apparently had a few ales when"

unless Ale is now no longer booze then I think Alcohol was mentioned.

Anyway who hasn't thought about taking a shotgun to a piece of machinery/equipment of some kind... or even the person using the machinery/equipment.... or thier boss... ok wow... it must be medication time for me then!

Consider yourself Moderatrixed

Paul Segrue

The bike question....

Thanks to the Moderatrix for the suggestion... but SV650? I may rue the day but I feel as if I may have to go GSXR750, might not be as handy around town but it will sure be fun.

I used to ride a CBR600 to work every day, admitadly I would have to get to the office a bit early to change from the leathers (or wet weather gear) but it was worth it... its a great warming feeling when you pass your boss when he is stuck in traffic (or even better when hes not and you blast past his brand new "mid life crisis" sports car")
