Weird News queensland, australia

Man ‘tattoos 40cm penis on friend’s back’ in Australia An amateur tattooist is facing assault charges after he inked a 40cm penis on a friend’s back, who only wanted ‘a Yin and Yang symbol with some dragons’. Alongside the penis illustration, the 21-year-old Australian tattooed an unspecified slogan implying said friend is gay. Police say the 25-year-old victim was talked into getting a tattoo while visiting his mate, but he asked him for an oriental design and emphatically not a giant back-based phallus. ‘Apparently he went round to the other bloke’s house and somehow in the course of the conversation the subject of tattoos came up,’ explained Detective Constable Paul Malcolm. ‘The victim wasn’t interested at first but he was talked into it and he said he wanted a Yin and Yang symbol with some dragons.’ After being told not to venture out into the sun or show anyone for a few weeks, the freshly inked chap promptly went home and unveiled the work to his flatmate, who informed him: ‘I don’t think it’s the tattoo you were after.’ While the penis artist is due in court next month charged with two counts of assault occasioning bodily 6

harm, the victim faces having his tattoo painfully removed by laser. Saaz, Czech Republic Miss Beer competition winner reveals she’s a porn star Organisers of the Miss Beer beauty contest have cancelled its results after winner Jana Kaderavkova was revealed to be a porn star. As the curvy 20-year-old was being crowned Miss Beer Queen, organisers of the contest in Saaz, in the Czech Republic, had complimented her on her fluent Italian. ‘Oh, I spend a lot of time in Italy,’ she replied. ‘I work there as a stripper, pose for soft porn magazines and I’m an erotic weather girl on TV.’ The contest’s Petr Simacek explained afterwards: ‘It was very delicate because our rules specifically ban entries from anyone who has done any kind of erotic work.’ Jana herself, however, had this to say of the decision to cancel the competition’s results: ‘It’s bloody stupid. They should have asked me that at the beginning, not while they were crowning me.’ The Miss Beer controversy comes not long after Miss Great Britain hopeful Laura Anness was axed from the competition following revelations that she was a prostitute and topless model.

served up by Do you wonder why we say certain things, or what they really mean? Each week we will examine a different word or phrase and tell you how UK Sausages, Ham, it came about. Bacon, Pies, Teas etc. This week it is.. Rhyming Slang A type of slang in which a words are replaced by a words or phrases they Call 087 155 7737 or 089 985 7473 rhyme with. Rhyming slang has the effect of obscuring the meaning of what is said from outsiders. It isn’t clear whether this is intentional, to hide one’s meaning from the law, or to exclude outsiders, or whether it is just a form of group bonding. The way rhyming slang works does tend to exclude those not ‘in the know’, as the substitution of one word for another often relies on reference to a key phrase, which, for the slang to be understood, must be known jointly by those communicating. For example, to get from ‘Hamsteads’ to ‘teeth’, one must be aware of Hampstead Heath. There’s no reason to suppose that there was any great conspiracy in the formation of rhyming slang. English speakers, in common with speakers of other languages, enjoy rhyming. Evidence of this are the numerous double-word forms (reduplications), created from nonsense words and coined for no better reason than for the hell of it. For example, ‘hoity-toity’, higgledy-piggledy’, ‘namby-pamby’, ‘nitty-gritty’, ‘itsy-bitsy’, etc, etc. Rhyming slang is an exuberant linguistic form and tends to flourish in confident, outgoing communities. That’s certainly true of Victorian England, which is where it originated. The earliest example of rhyming slang that we can find is in the English writer Edward Jerringham Wakefield’s, Adventures in New Zealand, 1845, in which he includes an account of the journey from the UK to the Southern Hemisphere: “The profound contempt which the whaler expresses for the ‘lubber of a jimmy-grant’, as he calls the emigrant.” Who Jimmy Grant was isn’t clear. Rhyming slang is highly volatile; terms emerge quickly and many don’t catch on. That’s especially true recently with the rise of media/celebrity culture and the Internet. There are many lists of Cockney Rhyming Slang terms, the best known. Turn to page 19 for a list of those that are fairly well-established and likely to remain in the language, and their meanings.

DRESSING UP I had lunch with 2 of my unmarried friends. One is engaged, the other is a mistress, and of course I have been married for 20+ years. We were chatting about our relationships and decided to amaze our partners by wearing a black leather bra, stiletto heels and a mask over our eyes. We agreed to meet in a few days to exchange notes. Here’s how it all went. My engaged friend: The other night when my boyfriend came over he found me with a black leather bodice, tall stilettos and a mask. He saw me and said, ‘You are the woman of my dreams. I love you’ and we made love all night long. The mistress: Me too! The other night I met my lover at his office and I was wearing the leather bodice and heels under a raincoat and the mask over my eyes. When I opened the raincoat he didn’t say a word, but we had wild sex all night. Then I shared my story: When my husband came home I was wearing the leather bodice, black stockings, stilettos and a mask over my eyes. As soon as he came in the door and saw me he said, ‘What’s for dinner, Batman?”

SOI 88

085 429 0378 DIARIES Her Diary: Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a bar to have a drink. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it. Conversation wasn’t flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn’t say much. I asked him what was wrong. He said, ‘Nothing.’ I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said he wasn’t upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry about it. On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly, and kept driving. I can’t explain his behaviour. I don’t know why he didn’t say, ‘I love you, too.’ When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent. Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed. About 15 minutes later, he came to bed. To my surprise, he responded to my caress, and we made love. But I still felt that he was distracted, and his thoughts were somewhere else. He fell asleep -I cried. I don’t know what to do. I’m almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster. His Diary: My Harley wouldn’t start today, but at least I got laid.

Aquarius Jan 20 – Feb 18 You’ll realize too late that there’s more to life than eating instant mashed potatoes and drinking root beer while the kiddie pool you’re lying in slowly fills up with your excrement. Pisces Feb 19 – Mar 20 There are some things that money can’t buy. For instance, with your record, you’re forbidden from getting close enough to purchase Girl Scout cookies. Aries Mar 21 – Apr 20 You will be torn between two equally worthy suitors, one who is kind, selfless, outgoing, supportive, and loving, and one who is attractive. Taurus Apr 21 – May 21 While it is true that all-knowing God sees every sparrow that falls, He finds it more amusing to watch you tumble down the stairs a couple times a week. Gemini May 22 – June 21 They say that knowing is half the battle, but they never talk about how the other half is tactical deployment and careful use of grenades.

Scorpio Oct 24 – Nov 21 Losing weight will improve your performance in all areas of life, but bolting on new shock absorbers is painful and counterproductive.

Your Problems SOLVED

DEAR MARY Until now, I’ve managed to lead my girlfriend to believe that my regular trips to Pattaya are to go snorkelling in Ko Samet and to play golf. She is also convinced that my occasional ‘visa runs’ to Ranong (every month) are an essential part of me staying in Thailand. In reality I spend the weekend boozing and whoring with friends I have in Pattaya, while I am always in the casino at the Andaman Club and rarely, if ever, have the time or energy to do anything else. For my birthday she’s booked a long weekend in November, staying in a hotel that has a golf course. She has also booked a scuba diving course for us both. I know she’s going to go mental when she sees that Pattaya is just one giant whorehouse, and be very shocked when she sees me try to play golf. She’s going to realise why it is that I’ve spent so much money recently and start being suspicious about my character generally. What would you do in my position? Johnnie, Pak Nam Pran


Relationship woes? Bar girl blues? Sexual deviant? Send your problem to Mary Ann Cotton on

Dear Johnnie, The first thing I would do before your trip is to get a custom fitted lockable jockstrap fitted, preferably made of a very hard material because the first thing she will want to do is hit you where it hurts. And on that note I would also make sure that any valuables you have (other than your crown jewels) are well out of reach - mobile phones and laptops don’t tend to come out of situations like this in very good condition. As for any other advice I would say that your days are numbered, either with the girlfriend or your jolly boys outings; if she has any sense she will make that decision for you but Thai women can be notoriously difficult in situations like this - they will make your life a misery and once they have beaten you will leave you for someone else - don’t say you haven’t been warned chaps! Now have a lovely birthday Johnnie...

Premier League News

Fixtures and Predictions (all times Thailand) Please note the clocks go back an hour in the UK on Sunday morning Saturday, 30 October 2010 Arsenal v West Ham, 21:00 After their pitiful performance last week the Hammers fans will be fearing a walloping here. However this game is rarely anything other than fiercely contested - narrow home win. Blackburn v Chelsea, 21:00 This looks like being a niggly game but with only one winner and it isn’t Blackburn. Everton v Stoke, 21:00 Likely to be a physical affair and we wouldn’t be at all surprised if there is a red card or two. Draw. Fulham v Wigan, 21:00 Both teams are difficult to beat but neither currently seem to have the creative spark to win, so another draw. Wolves v Man City, 21:00 City will be looking to bounce back after being taken apart by Arsenal but this will not be easy either. Just about an away win. Man Utd v Tottenham, 23:30 Saturday’s big game and it will be interesting to see how Spurs match up; they have been conceding too many goals though which we expect the home side to profit from - home win. Sunday, 31 October 2010 Aston Villa v Birm’ham, 19:00 A weekend of derby matches sees the second city clash with nothing much separating these sides. Draw.

Another draw. Bolton v Liverpool, 23:00 Have Liverpool turned a corner? This will be a test of that which we think they will fail - home win. Tuesday, 2 November 2010 Blackpool v West Brom, 03:00 Blackpool have been poor at home and the Baggies are in good form. Away win.

Black Hole Rovers? New Indian Owners to rebrand Blackburn Rovers

blackburn, england The Indian-owned Venky’s group, set to buy Blackburn Rovers, say they intend to rename and rebrand the Premiership club. The group, which specialises in poultry farming and pharmaceutical production, has held several meetings with Rovers and the Premier League. “It’s an Indian takeover, not a takeaway.” said Chairman Annutha Karpetbaggha on the Blackburn website. “We are particularly delighted that the team is Blackburn Rovers, with whom we have many shared values and tastes, such as Tandoori Turkey Twizzlers with chips.” According to its website Venky’s was established in Calcutta in the 1970’s, mainly to produce chicks for the poultry markets of India. It then diversified into manufacturing pharmaceuticals. Products made by them include chicken nuggets, kebabs, cheesychicken-chokers and Viagra. Blackburn are currently 17th, one place above the relegation zone with nine points from nine games. Speaking today, Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce, when not putting himself forward to manage Real Madrid or England, welcomed

the prospect of the sale and new injections of cash for the team. “If their background pedigree in Viagra is anything to go by, we’ll be shooting up the league - and staying up - in no time.” he joked. “We have a reputation as a ‘hard’ club. We’ll be even harder now!”. The only contentious part of the takeover that may not be to the

fans’ liking is the rebranding of their club and ground. Mr. Karpetbaggha remained tightlipped on what the new name will be, but intimated that it would be something with an ‘Indian twist’. One fan interviewed while standing outside the ground commented “I just hope they don’t call us ‘Blackhole of Calcutta Rovers’!” Other plans that have been mooted are for the club shop and one entire side of the outside of Ewood Park, Rovers’ ground, to be converted into a giant tailor’s shop, while the food on offer inside the ground is going to offer such delicacies as ‘Ghandi burgers’ and ‘Runny Bottom Butties’. Ewood Park is also slated for a name change, with the current suggestions being the ‘Poppadom Park’ or the front runner ‘Bollywood Bowl’. The potential new owners have been quick to scotch suggestions that either the current manager would be removed, or that the club’s famous playing strip would be changed.

“The local establishment with local prices” Be served by the hostesses with the mostest!
