Bitchin' News (01/23)

  • Rescue charity workers who battled in vain to save a whale found swimming up the River Thames are now facing a bill of more than £300 in parking fines. -I sure hope these evil rescue workers learned their lesson. I bet the next time they have the urge to save a whale they’ll think about it twice!
  • An adviser to President Bush said Monday that Bush’s photographs in the company of disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff amount to a coincidence and shouldn’t be interpreted any more seriously than that. -This doesn’t even deserve a comment.
  • Marijuana growers gathered in Europe’s pot-smoking capital on Sunday for a trade show that is taking on the trappings of a major industry fair, complete with scantily clad models, glossy brochures and, of course, samples. Exhibitors showed off their bongs, grinders, rolling paper, reflective film, hemp-fabric apparel and how-to marijuana growing videos. -Er, am I the only one that thinks this is getting a tad out of hand? Samples, brochures, models???
  • From the waist up, they looked like perfectly normal commuters. That wasn’t good enough for police. Eight pranksters who dropped their pants and showed their underwear on the subway on Sunday were taken into custody and issued summonses for disorderly conduct. -See, they never tell us the important stuff in these articles. What I really want to know is a) were these guys hot? and b) briefs, boxers or commando?
  • It has come to the attention of The Book Bitches that their article ideas are being stolen and/or copied from their very popular blog by other Bitches. Their publicist released a statement Sunday evening, in which she explains that: “The Book Bitches are very flattered that another site is taking the time to plagiarize their articles, but they would very much appreciate it if said website mentioned them SOMEWHERE in these posts, instead of shamelessly stealing their stuff/ideas and then passing them off as their own.”
