.... Party Boy!

Sky News splendidly concludes: "Celebrations are said to have continued after Mr Isayev's body was taken away in an ambulance."

Now THAT'S how to celebrate a wake!

Poor/stupid chap

Paris, because she knows when she's had too much batter... Allegedly!

Somehow, I don't think this what IHOP had in mind when it came up with the slogan.

I feel sorry for the guy, but not as sorry as I feel for the poor souls that clean the restrooms at such events.

Lester...

For goodeness sakes, this happened 10 days ago. It's hardly news (and the only IT angle, I can see, on it, is that, The Inquirer had a link to the story, under their 'funny image in the banner' - oooh, about... ten days ago).

Dear El Reg,

Typing things in a cyrillic font does not make them sound authentically Russian. If you wish to include such puns in your headlines in the future, you would do well to hire an actual ethnic Russian. This would also help to diversify your overly Brit-heavy staff.

As this is the proof of the quality and journalistic integrity of your publication falling below an acceptable level, I shall henceforth be canceling my subscription to El Reg.

The only heavy one around here is the pancake scoffer.

How'd he die again?

Did he choke or did his gut go boom? If the former, it's just a reminder to CHEW YOUR GODDAMN FOOD FATTY! If the latter, a similar fate was covered on a show over here recently. "Gorgeous Gorge" was merely a bulimic model, however, and merely failed to purge in time.
