How the story should have read: "When I saw the new species of lemur I just knew he should take his righful place as our king!" said the Pope at the press conference

Oh General, you silly boy.

But nonetheless I shall bear this thread in mind for possible nomination for "Best thread title" at next year's forum awards.

And this one should have read: "Fancy driving with a few stiff shandys inside you? Simply pop a bag of frozen peas on the passenger seat beside you as an old bylaw dating from 1264 forbids a police officer from making a drink drive arrest if he can see more than five peas at the time of roadside breathalizing. "

General was bold enough to comment:

That story's got so much that makes be laugh and whince:
"The 34-year-old had been drinking ... when he decided to sunbathe naked." - As you do...

He got impaled through the groin. That's gotta hurt
