Post-pub nosh deathmatch: Haggis pakora v huevos rancheros



At least we now know why the bar bill was so high - clearly because of all the emergency beers to counter chilli/haggis poisoning!

Lincs bloke fined in deceased hedgehog outrage

IT Angle

I actually thought the story was going to be about somebody damaging hedgehog habitats while laying copper or fibre for broadband - parts of Lincolnshire being notoriously difficult to get connections in.

This is much more amusing though!

Navy SEALs to deploy armoured dogs in A'stan


Parachuting dog / Parascending donkey???

The most upsetting thing about the image was the ghostly image of my hair, which made me look like a cyberman on the scan!
