Really Bad Dad arrested for forcing son to wear Packers jersey

Posted by Fred on January 17, 2008


How much beer was involved in this story?

Upset that his 7-year-old son wouldn’t wear a Green Bay Packers jersey during the team’s playoff victory Saturday, a man restrained the boy for an hour with tape and taped the jersey onto him.

The boy refused to wear the jersey Saturday, when the Packers beat the Seattle Seahawks in a playoff game, [Sheriff’s Department Lt. Wayne] Smith said. Smith said the incident sounded strange when reported at first, but the mother took pictures with her cellphone and that type of evidence is difficult to dispute.

Dad ended up in jail because Mom ratted him out (which he fully deserved, of course).  What, pray tell, would he have done had the Packers lost? Maybe he should try to adopt this kid, who has worn his jersey every day since Christmas 2003.

Man teased for big, stupid tattoo of fake, dead gay guy

Posted by Fred on October 30, 2007

dumbledore_tat.jpgDon’t spend a year getting a 2 foot tattoo of a fictional character if it’s going to bother you if said fictional character turns out to be gay and in love with another fictional character

“When I walked in, one of the lads said, ‘Oi, Paul – heard about Dumbledore?’“There were wisecracks about ‘Watch your backs, lads.’ Someone asked me if I was planning to get a tattoo of Graham Norton. I thought, ‘Why me?’ ”

The huge £500 tattoo shows Dumbledore holding a scroll bearing the names of his Harry Potter mad children – Charlotte, Deanna, Brandon, Tamzin and Paris.

Paul said: “It seemed like a good idea at the time.”

Given that the tattoo took a year to create, one presumably can’t blame the beer. One does wonder, however, what they guy thought he would do ten years from now, when Dumbledore wouldn’t exactly be fresh. One also hopes the dude had some alcohol handy whilst reading the portions of the final book when it looked like D might not turn out to be such a good wizard (of course anyone who thought this idea was a good one probably doesn’t read much). Better to be gay than dark.
