Not News of the Week

If it’s not worth talking about, then it must be the 41st edition of the Not News of the Week.

You can find strip clubs everywhere and all sorts of people in them but they do things differently in South Carolina. One strip club in South Carolina was found by police to be operating out of a trailer with patrons as young as 12-years-old sitting around a pole. Police received a tip to head to a trailer park when a disgruntled customer called in a complaint when he didn’t get what he wanted. He had bought a $25 “VIP” lap dance but apparently wasn’t satisfied with the service. The woman who owned the trailer and ran the one-woman strip club was charged with eight counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor for her trouble. However, I don’t think the kids really see the problem with all this. Continue reading

Not News of the Week

Just because it’s a statutory holiday doesn’t mean that we can’t bring you the weirdest and wackiest stories from around the world. After a short delay, it’s time for the Not News of the Week.

The never-ending saga of the British woman who ran afoul of the law because she has loud sex is back in court. She’s had an ASBO (Anti-Social Behaviour Order) for the last four years and was handed a suspended suspension for repeated violations in January. In late March, she and her husband had a quickie on Sunday morning but that was enough for her neighbours to ring the local constabulary. She was arrested and arraigned but as part of her bail arrangement, she has to stay in a special “bail house” so she stays away from her husband so they don’t have loud sex. She has a solid defence though. She says that they were only going at it for ten minutes instead of their usual two hour marathons. Still, I have to wonder why she’s the one getting in trouble when it’s her husband’s fault that he’s so good. Continue reading

Not News of the Week

If it’s not worth talking about, then it must be the Not News of the Week.

A Scottish man was fined £600 for assaulting a police officer. Police were called to hid home because he was very, very drunk. When police got there, the man dropped his pants, whipped out his penis and thrust it in the face of a policewoman. According to the police report, she ducked out of the way of the flailing penis just before it hit her. How they got into a position where the man could almost hit the officer in the face with his penis, no one will ever know. However, the guy must be disappointed. His reputation could have gotten a huge boost from a conviction for assault with a deadly weapon. Continue reading

Not News of the Week

It’s that time of week again. If it’s not worth talking about, then it’s definitely the Not News of the Week.

If you’re trying to talk your way out of a speeding ticket, admitting to another illegal act isn’t a good way to do it. A man in Halton, Ontario, ticketed for going 92 km/h in a 70 km/h zone by an officer using a laser speed detector. The driver fought the ticket in court. His defence: His laser/radar detector didn’t go off so the officer couldn’t have been checking the speed of his car. Unfortunately for him, that defence doesn’t work because radar detectors are illegal in Ontario. So not only did he have to pay his ticket but he got another one for having a speed-measurement detector. That’s why they say a man who represents himself in court has a fool for a client.
