Hah! And when the police are investigated for it:
"Terror Police Grabbing Butt Probe"
It appears ITV is not prepared to take the BBC's challenge for the schoolboy innuendo headline crown lying down, and on Saturday offered up its pitch for the title: 'Butt seized by terror police', says ITV Not bad, but aficionados of the genre will, of course, see that ITV has missed a trick here in not rendering this as " …
When you consider that the Pakistan cricket team's opening batsman is one Salman Butt and has been in remarkably good form of late so has been in the cricket headlines.
Sadly Salman's form has been so good that tight finishes have been few and far between so headlines about Butt scraping, et cetera have been avoided by the cricket sites.
Come on ITV, you can do better than this!
Can't remember where I saw this, but here goes...
There was once a vicar whose church was falling apart. He tried to raise funds for repairs, but the only donation he received was a live donkey. Not knowing what to do with it, he entered it in the local races. But it seems that God was on his side, for the donkey kept up with the main pack! The local paper reported:
"Vicar shows his ass at racetrack."
The vicar was inspired to persevere, and trained up his donkey as best he could. It seemed to work - at the next race, it came second! The papers said:
"Vicar's ass looking good."
"Vicar's ass shows good form."
The vicar kept at it, and the next race, his donkey came first in both the flat race and the steeplechase! The papers said:
"Vicar's ass out in front."
"Vicar's ass sweeps board."
Then the bishop of the diocese heard about it and told the vicar that he was getting the wrong sort of publicity, and must withdraw the donkey from competition. The papers said:
"Bishop scratches Vicar's ass."
"Vicar's ass: banned it."
Growing increasingly stressed, the bishop tells the vicar to get rid of the donkey immediately. He hands it over to the local convent. The papers say:
"Holy fight continues. Vicar's ass handed to nunnery."
"Mother Superior has fastest ass in town."
Prescription for blood-pressure medicine in hand, the bishop orders the Mother Superior to have the animal quietly destroyed. The papers are on this like a shot:
"Mother Superior killing ass for Bishop."
"Mother Superior sells ass on Bishops orders."
"Mother Superior's ass butchered by men with big choppers."
"Nuns' ass on meat rack, $5 per portion."
But the bishop got his wish. The headline the next day read:
"Bishop dies from heart attack."
