Friday, March 2 in the news.....

  • A German man who spent 10 days in a self-made box atop a 22m high pole to protest a looming jail term was lured off his perch by his wife – who sent up a topless picture of herself in his lunch box. When asked about it the man said "Well that was a great picture, I don't know why she had to take her top off for the pose though, after 10 days isolated, a Hitler salute always turns me on."

  • Australian Reconstruction Task Force 2 Commanding Officer Lieutenant Colonel Harry Jarvie said today that fears of a Taliban spring offensive in Afghanistan have been overstated, with threats from the Islamic militia little more than empty rhetoric. The Lieutenant Colonel has said they've done such a great job hyping it though that he has bestowed their leaders an honorary membership in the Australasian Order of Bullshit Artists.
