Nasty way to remove a tattoo

The always excellent Bystander pointed me at these two crispy guys. He makes a good point in his latest article about the tragedy of the way the paper has spun this story - they only make the news because they bonked Paris Hilton half a lifetime ago. What a sad indictment on our modern media that they decide to slant things that way.

The story mentions that the well-inked guy is badly burned beneath the waist. I guess if his bottom half is anything like his top half, it will be covered in tatts. What's the bet they are now all completely buggered, and that his first concern will be for his lost tattoos, rather than the 4 people that died in the crash?

And here's another point about celebrities - note that there were 4 passengers in the Lear jet. Remember all that hoo-ha about carbon emmissions and global worming and all that other crap? Any chance that these two crispy people have played at some concerts proposing that we all get taxed to death in order to 'save the planet'?

If so, I hope this is a judgement on high about their hypocrisy.

A definition of tragedy.

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd visited a primary school and went into one of the classes. They were in the middle of a discussion about words and their meanings. The teacher asked the Prime Minister whether he would like to lead the discussion about the word 'tragedy'. So our illustrious leader from Queensland asked the class for an example of a tragedy.

One little boy stood up and offered: 'If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs over him and kills him, that would be a tragedy'

'No,' said Kevin from Queensland, 'that would be an accident'.

A little girl raised her hand: 'If a school bus carrying fifty children was driven over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy.'

'I'm afraid not,' explained the Prime Minister, 'that's what we would call a great loss.'

The room went silent. No other children volunteered. Kevin searched the room. 'Isn't there someone here who can give me an example of tragedy?'

Finally, at the back of the room, a small boy raised his hand... In a quiet voice he said: 'If an aeroplane carrying you and Ms Gillard was struck by a 'friendly fire' missile and blown to smithereens that would be a tragedy'.

'Fantastic!' exclaimed Kevin from Queensland. 'That's right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?'

'Well,' says the boy 'It has to be a tragedy, because it certainly wouldn't be a great loss and it probably wouldn't be a f*cking accident either'.
