Just the one?


It's tradition to have just one.

I don't tend to stay up for events like this, as it's almost always cloudy when they occur anyways.

Frenchman Breaks Policeman's Finger After Being Stopped From Shitting In Public In St Julian's

Image

A policeman was left with a broken finger after getting involved in a messy arrest of a French student who was literally caught with his pants down releasing a chocolate storm in St Julian's this morning.

The French student, 22-year-old Titouan Robin Malo Billaud, was remanded in custody after pleading not guilty to attacking police officers as well as violently resisting arrest and insulting police officers. The incident happened this morning in Triq Mikiel Ang Borg.

Billaud had been spotted releasing an organic brown turtle in public during a police patrol. When police approached him, he ran away, leading to a police chase. Eventually, Maltese policemen caught up with the young Frenchman, and a violent struggle ensued. It was in this struggle that the policeman's finger was broken.

Inspector Joseph Xerri told Magistrate Joe Mifsud that officers had been patrolling St Julian’s this morning and spotted the accused defecating in public. They went to speak to the accused and he ran away, and it was when he was eventually apprehended and struggling violently that he broke a policeman’s finger.

“Nobody is excused - whatever the reason - for threatening a police officer or injuring them," said Magistrate Joe Mifsud

“Police orders should be immediately obeyed and respect should be shown to every official always and everywhere," Mifsud continued. "This respect should show more clearly in situations where there is some tension.”

He also said that police officers should not allow these incidents to demoralise them, incidents which he said were on the rise. Bail was not given as it was not requested.

Couple ordered corn on the cob but got corn on a cob instead


Paige Hart, 24, and boyfriend William Maddock, 32, went to a takeaway in the Midlands, where a bread roll is known commonly known as a ‘cob’. They placed a £14 order – including a £3.50 dish of corn on the cob – before returning to their flat in Carlton, Nottingham.

That’s when Paige discovered she’d been given sweetcorn on a bread roll.

Paige said: ‘Me and William wanted something to eat before we got home and couldn’t be bothered to cook. ‘It’s a bit like Nando’s so we ordered our chicken. I turned to William and said I fancied I corn on the cob so I asked the guy behind the counter if he did it. ‘At first he looked at me a bit weird and said “of course darling” and bagged it up. We were just gobsmacked. ‘We were both in stitches as he took it so literally. What some people call baps we call cobs so he took it literally.’

‘The thing is it didn’t even have butter on,’ said Paige. ‘And I still was really craving a corn on the cob. ‘It’s not nice without butter. We didn’t eat it in the end. We took a few pics and put it in the bin.’

I didn’t realise it was only a East Midlands thing calling bread rolls “cobs” I thought it was a nationwide name

Cob is a term I've heard around my parts.
