If my day weren’t full enough after finding Colbert Report episodes to download, I stumbled across an article to provide the packing peanuts. Adding to the joy is the BBC’s characteristically British coverage. Read the short version to slam your funny bone against the story’s ludicrous details as frequently as possible. Read the full version to find out one of the men involved is named Barney Jones.
I’m tempted to think this article is actually a work of fiction, because it hits so many humor points. I don’t really care if it is. It wouldn’t be any less funny if I read it in the Onion.
