Mugshots of the day revisited (again).

Having previously written about Mugshot of The Day, the Maricopa County police departments online service where you can vote for your favourite inmate mugshot, I am still wondering when the idea will be picked up here in a modern day version of the public stocks.

Bears, a big dog, a racoon and a pot bellied pig guarding a marijuana plantation equals one corpsing news reader.

This news lady certainly earns her money trying to record an item about a Canadian pot farm and its collection of weird and wonderful guard animals : _ _ There is definitely something infectious about free laughter like that as you just cannot help but laugh along.

Fair and balanced reporting from Pravda.

Following on from Pravda’s view of David Cameron, I came across another article giving us the brilliance of Gordon Brown, the dim and uneducated British people and the biased and unfair UK press. Not to mention a “prissy, stuck up conniving upstart”. Yes really.

The article is written by Pravda’s UK correspondent John Whitehouse […]
