MAN IN CAR BLOWS HIS NOSE.  MAN IN CAR GETS AN ON THE SPOT TRAFFIC TICKET. ONLY IN THE UK.

batbatbatbatbatbatbatbatbatbatbatbat

There are not enough bats at BMEWS to place with this article.  Maybe we should dump the moonbat here and replace it with an image of the officer involved.

It’s this kind of insanity that goes unchecked that drives folks nuts.
Just why is officer Moonbat still on the job?  How’d he ever qualify?  Who gets his kick back on payday?  How does he get away with this sort of stupid bahavior?  How come someone hasn’t pulled the plug on him by now?

Be sure and click the link below coz there is more. You might not think there is. But it’s so. You will not believe the very last line in this article at the link. I can’t believe it.  Be very interested to read your reactions to just that one line. You’ll see what I mean when you get there.  If it weren’t part of a news story on line, I’d say Drew with his sense of humor made it up. Or else the Daily Mail is holding something back.

Driver fined for blowing his nose… by same PC who ticketed man for dropping £10

By Paul Sims

When motorist Michael Mancini found himself stuck in a queue of traffic with a runny nose, he instinctively reached for his hankie.

However, the simple act of pulling out a tissue and blowing his nose earned him a £60 on-the-spot fine because he was ‘not in proper control of his vehicle’.

Policeman Stuart Gray, nicknamed PC Shiny Buttons for his zealous approach to the job, also handed out three points - even though Mr Mancini had his handbrake on.

Now Mr Mancini, a 39-year-old father-of-two, faces a potentially expensive legal battle to clear his name after vowing not to pay the fine.

He is the latest victim of PC Gray, who is no stranger to controversy.

A few months ago, the officer issued a £50 fixed penalty for littering to unemployed Stewart Smith, who accidentally dropped a £10 note in the street as he left a shop.

Last night Mr Mancini spoke of his disbelief at his experience.

SO MUCH MORE TO SEE HERE, DON’T PASS IT BY

Eeeew!

Odd factoid of the day:

Sharks have no urinary tract, so urine builds up in their bloodstream and must be secreted through their skin. This also cools the shark and helps it maintain osmotic balance. Unlike regular (ie bony) fish, sharks do not deliberately drink water.

D’oh! A Deer!

Downtown Does Mob Store Opening

Shopkeeper Trampled By Suburban Deer Herd


image


By the time the Tarboro [South Carolina] business owner looked up from the sidewalk, the herd was upon her, she said, too close for her to react and charging too quickly for her to run away.

Michelle Brewer, the 46-year-old co-owner of Brewer’s Fine Jewelry in Tarboro, was flipped up in the air and trampled in front of her Main Street storefront last week by a group of renegade deer.

The victim said she wouldn’t have believed the tale if she heard it from a friend – “Really? A herd of deer on Main Street?” Brewer said, seeming to question her own story – but she has the witnesses and the scars to prove it.

The deer were real, Brewer said. And they were fast. Shortly before 10 a.m. Saturday, Brewer was unlocking the front door to open her business for the day when she heard a beeping car horn.

“I think the woman must have seen what was about to happen and was trying to warn me,” Brewer said. “But I also wonder if that didn’t just make them run faster.”

Witnesses, including her husband, Kenny, later told Brewer the herd of seven to nine “good-sized does” must have been running at least 40 mph. Brewer doesn’t recall gauging the speed. She said she looked up as the first deer rushed past her.

“That was a confusing moment,” she said.

Brewer turned and saw the rest of the herd running toward her in a tight unit, she said, too close for her to dodge them individually but spread too wide for her to flee to the right or to the left.

The deer had a good game plan, Brewer said, and they executed it well. Brewer turned sideways and closed her eyes, hoping the deer would run around her. They did not.

“I don’t remember being hit,” Brewer said. “My husband and the guys over at the barber shop said I went airborne – flipping me probably three feet up in the air – and I landed on my face.”

Another deer stomped Brewer’s leg, witnesses said. Brewer looked up and saw one of the deer pinned under a car after being hit in the road, she said. The doe somehow pulled itself free and sprinted to catch the others, she said.

From there, the Tarboro deer herd later wreaked havoc at the Fountains at The Albemarle retirement home, also downtown, where a clerk said one deer failed at an attempt to enter through the automatic front door. Instead, the deer smashed through a glass window and thrashed about inside an unoccupied office room. Nobody was injured in that incident, authorities said.

Brewer added that when she becomes a grandparent, her sons can tell their kids that indeed, “grandmother did get run over by reindeer” before Christmas this year

A Rhetorical question

So, I’m watching The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.

Now, I know it’s fantasy. But still, you have to have some basis in fact.

Reepicheep is leading the mice. He draws his obviously well-made rapier.

And here I went wrong. I started thinking things like: who forges mouse-sized rapiers in Telmarine-occupied Narnia?

IDIOTS WRITE BOOK, EAT YOUR PETS TO SAVE THE PLANET … ANYONE SURPRISED?

batbatbatbatbatbat

Don’t know about you but I for one will not eat Fido or Fluffy if I still had one of those, even if the sky is falling.  Which it isn’t.

These folks are serious. The fear is that there are enough idiots out there who may buy their message.

Owners should consider doing without, downsizing or even eating their pets to help save the planet, according to a new book.

Pet dogs as bad for planet as driving 4x4s, book claims

By Paul Stokes
The Telegraph

It claims that the carbon footprint left by domesticated animals is out of proportion to the size of their paws.

A medium-sized dog has the same impact as a Toyota Land Cruiser driven 6,000 miles a year, while a cat is equivalent to a Volkswagen Golf.

But rabbits and chickens are eco-friendly because they provide meat for their owners while a canary or a goldfish has little effect on the environment.

At the same time a pair of hamsters do the same damage as running a plasma television, suggests the book Time to Eat the Dog: The Real Guide to Sustainable Living.

New Zealand-based authors Robert and Brenda Vale base their findings on the amount of land needed to grow food for pets ranging from budgerigars to cats and dogs.

They say an average Collie eats 164kg of meat and 95kg of cereals a year, giving it a high impact on the planet.

But a pair of rabbits can produce 36 young annually, which would provide 72kg of meat and help decrease the owner’s carbon footprint.

Mr Vale, an architect who specialises in sustainable living, said: “There are no recipes in the book. We’re not actually saying it is time to eat the dog.

“We’re just saying that we need to think about and know the (ecological) impact of some of the things we do and that we take for granted.”

He explained that sustainability issues require us to make choices which are “as difficult as eating your dog”.

Mr Vale added: “Once you see where cats and dogs fit in your overall balance of things, you might decide to have the cat but not also to have the two cars and the three bathrooms and be a meat-eater yourself.”

Not A UFO

It Is Balloon!!*

Blimp? Dirigible? Whatever.




So we’re having a bit of Indian Summer here, mostly. Not a PC term I’m sure, but what it means this year is that it’s stopped raining and has been comfortably cool the past couple of days. Instead of feeling like late November near freezing duck hunting weather, like last week. So we’ve got the windows open. Last night we had a bit of overcast and there was not a breath of air moving. Not a breath.

We live in this condo park not very far from the highway. So we can hear a bit of the traffic noises when they’re loud, but otherwise it’s not a bother. So I’m sitting around last night while my wife was busy packing - she’s off this morning to an eyeball conference in San Fran for a few days - so I was staying out of her way. Never get between a woman in a hurry and her luggage!

Anyway, I heard this engine sound that didn’t seem right. It wasn’t a traffic kind of noise, it was more like a contractor’s generator or an air compressor engine sound. And odder still, there seemed to be several of them going on at the same time. So I took a look out the front window. Nothing to see. So I went to the back of the unit, out onto the back porch. The noise was much louder out there, and it seemed quite bright out. And then I looked up.

And the whole damn sky was filled with airship.


image     image



Granted, it wasn’t the Hindenburg. Whatever blimp it was, was probably no more than 175 feet long, and maybe 50 feet across. But when it’s night, and the thing is perhaps 400 feet up over your head, and all lit up and glowing, it’s bloody huge.

This was the DirecTV blimp. I looked it up. It’s a Lightship A-170, and is just a hair bigger than I guessed. At night it’s all lit up from the inside, so it glows. It’s got a giant video screen on one side, but they weren’t using it. It’s pale blue with the darker blue DirecTV logo. And it was just hanging in the air above me, close enough so that I could see people in the cabin. Gondola? Basket? Whatever the hangy thingy is called. And it then did an amazing thing: it turned around. On a dime. Within it’s own length. Like it was on a bearing. Impressive! It then proceeded to fly sideways back over our place, out towards the highway. I didn’t know blimps could do that.

I guess the idea was to use it like a floating billboard, and hang in the sky perpendicular to the highway. And that’s exactly what they did. As the thing motored over our place, I quickly walked to the front and grabbed my camera. By the time I got the slider open and was out on the front balcony the blimp was several hundred yards past us and quite a bit higher. So I took what pictures I could - digital cameras aren’t at their best at night, that’s for sure! - and watched it float up and down the road for a while. Pretty cool.

We get hot air balloons here all the time in the summer. Sometimes dozens at once. We even had one land in the backyard a few years ago. So I’m quite familiar with the size of those, and I know the ripping canvas sound of their burners from a mile away. But this blimp had them beat all to hell.

And that was the high point of my evening. Never a dull moment here in Clinton.

DO IT IN A LARGE PUBLIC PLACE LIKE AN ART GALLERY AND IT’S ART. AT HOME ITS KIDDIE PORN.

This really is bothersome on more then one level. Seems like anything that’s on display in a gallery like ... oh let me think.  How about a crucifix in a jar of urine.  Oh well. It’s art if it’s in a gallery. 

How about a photograph of a ten year old girl, oiled and made to look like a woman?  Is that kiddie porn? Is it porn at all or just a photo of a naked and oiled and made up kid having fun?

The newest filth going on display at the Tate Modern will show a nude Brooke Shields at age ten.  I guess back then her parents or guardian or whoever gave the okay.  I haven’t seen the photo and don’t know if it is art or it isn’t.  ??? Does it depend on how the pix was shot and what sort of background?  Somehow, and maybe I’m greatly out of step with the time here, nude ten year olds as described in this article fall far short of ‘art’ imho.

But wait.  That isn’t all.  The latest ‘artful display’ will include pornography including penetration. 

Just so we’re clear and understand things.
Two lady police officers who have kids can’t baby sit for one another (as reported here recently) because of concerns re. child safety.  If they care for one another’s children more then 14 days a year as the new law has been written, they must register and have tests of some sort to prove they are not criminals.  Never mind they’re cops. 
But an art (?) gallery can display an oiled nude of a ten year old.  Got it.

Try passing out porn in public spaces and you might find yourself up on charges of some kind I am certain.  Public nuisance perhaps.  Ah but .. give it a name, call it art and Bob’s your uncle. 

Here you go. See what you make of this.  And lets have no talk of censorship.  Remember. It’s “ART.”

Tate Modern to display nude picture of 10-year-old Brooke Shields alongside giant pornographic images

By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 5:49 PM on 29th September 2009

A provocative nude picture of a 10-year-old Brooke Shields will appear in a new exhibition at the Tate Modern, it was revealed today.

Gallery chiefs said they sought legal advice before including the work, titled Spiritual America, in the Pop Life: Art In A Material World show, which opens on Thursday.

The exhibition also features huge sexually explicit images of penetration and works made from the pages of pornographic magazines.

Richard Prince’s image of Shields shows the actress from the knees up, naked, oiled and wearing make-up, looking directly at the viewer.

It is hung in a special room at the south London gallery with a notice on the door warning visitors they may find the image ‘challenging’.

Prince himself described the 1983 work, which is in fact a photograph of a photograph taken by another artist, Gary Gross, as ‘an extremely complicated photo of a naked girl who looks like a boy made up to look like a woman’.

The picture was originally shown anonymously in a disused shop in a run-down area of New York, and the Tate show is believed to be the work’s first appearance in a UK gallery.

Jack Bankowsky, the exhibition’s co-curator, said he hoped the artistic interest in Spiritual America would not be overshadowed by controversy over its content.

‘I hope that people respond to what is provocative and understand what the artist was trying to achieve,’ he said.

‘If it turned into that kind of brouhaha it would overwhelm the work and become a monosyllabic conversation.’

Prince wanted the viewer to respond to the ‘eerieness’ of Gross’ original image, Mr Bankowsky said.
Full on: American artist Jeff Koons’ Dirty-Jeff On Top’ statue stands in front of Made In Heaven, at the Pop Life, Art In A Material World exhibition to be staged at the Tate Modern

A spokesman for the Tate said they had given careful consideration to the work and the reaction it could provoke before including it in the exhibition.

‘As with any artwork that contains challenging imagery, Tate has sought legal advice and evaluated the situation,’ the spokesman said.

‘Tate has taken measures to inform visitors of the nature of the work, providing information outlining the intentions of the artist.

‘This is an important work by Richard Prince which has been publicly exhibited on a number of occasions, most recently in Richard Prince’s major retrospective, Spiritual America, at the Guggenheim in New York.’

This is also art. Art? This?  How about garbage?  And ppl fall for this crap. Why? Where is the art in this. I guess I just don’t understand the term.

Vegan prisoners win right to ‘cruelty free’ products in jail.  More pandering to the bleeding hearts

I read this today and started with every four letter word plus derivatives I could dream up.
This is one of many reasons folks do not believe for a minute that prisons are working. Or for that matter the criminal justice system. Sure, works fine for the gremlins.  They even pander now for “Pagan” prisoners.  Imagine that.


Vegan prisoners have won the right to order ethically-sourced food, toiletries and cosmetics in jail.


By Nick Allen
The Telegraph

They will be allowed to buy in products including nuts, seeds, dried fruits, vegan chocolate bars, soap, shampoo, deodorant, sunscreen, lipstick and facial scrubs after prison chiefs agreed to allow them to place mail order requests to two “eco-outlets”.
Vegans refuse to eat any food, wear any clothes or use any product which involves the use of animals in any way. They don’t wear wool and leather, don’t consume dairy products and will not use toiletries or cosmetics that contain animal products or that have been tested on animals.
Some of the strictest vegans avoid all products with even a remote connection to animal exploitation, including sugar processed with animal bones and camera film that contains gelatin.

There are an estimated 800 in the prison population at any one time and they currently struggle to obtain products they find acceptable, with most jail canteen food and even prison-issue boots excluded.
After a 15-year-campaign by the Vegan Prisoners Support Group (VPSG) the Prison Service has now allowed them to order ethical food and toiletries by mail order if there are none in their prison shop.
Orders will be supplied by the High Street health store Holland & Barrett, which sells a wide variety of nuts and seeds, and the eco-friendly outlet Honesty Cosmetics.

It is the latest in a series of rulings to protect the rights of inmates from minority groups. In May pagan convicts were allowed to keep twigs in their cells to use as wands.
After securing access to food and toiletries for vegan prisoners the VPSG is now negotiating for them to be supplied with “vegan shoes”, which are made from a combination of natural and synthetic materials instead of animal hides.

It insisted that vegans needed to be able to order in food because they could not otherwise get enough iodine from a prison diet. A lack of iodine can slow the thyroid. Most people get iodine from fish and vegetarians get it from milk.
A spokesman for the VPSG insisted it was “critical” for the health of vegans that they have access to suitable food.

He said: “Vegan prisoners have had very limited access to vegan products through prison shops. Our recommendations were for basic vegan hygiene and bodycare products like a vegan soap bar, shampoo, conditioner, moisturiser, deodorant and toothpaste.

“In addition we recommended a vegan chocolate bar, sweet and savoury vegan biscuit, a protein source such as Nuttolene or braised tofu, vegan spread, cheese alternative, soya yoghurt, flavoured soya drink and fortified soya milk.”

But a source at HMP Exeter said: “These guys are crooks. They are in prison to serve time. We can’t be running around making sure they have the right sun cream or that they have the one brazil nut or selection of walnuts to make sure they get enough vitamins.
“They gave up any rights to have principals when they robbed the old lady, burgled a house, smuggled cocaine or beat someone up.”

kind of icky

Hurry, you only have 20 minutes left to bid!!

Spent Eternity on top of Marilyn Monroe




Here is you BIG CHANCE!



Here is a once in a lifetime and into eternity opportunity to spend your eternal days directly above Marilyn Monroe.  This crypt in the famous Westwood Cemetary in West Los Angeles currently occupied above Marilyn Monroe is being vacated so as to make room for a new resident. “Spending Eternity next to Marilyn Monroe is too sweet to pass up”, recently quoted by Hugh Heffner, who has reserved his place in eternity next to her.  The lucky bidder will be deeded a piece of real estate that he or she will make their last address. And below you will be Marilyn Monroe.  In fact the person occupying the address right now is looking face down on her. 



So, you can stay there all eternity, until your plot gets sold out from underneath you again? And then where do you go?

The whole thing sounds kind of icky to me.
