A whisky bottle, a pig’s head, and a blow-up doll…

You have to love ‘news’ stories that involve a whisky bottle, a pig’s head, and a blow-up doll… you could not even make this gem up… and it comes complete with bigoted and erroneous comments below! 

I love the defence lawyers claim that “Sheppard had thrown the bottle in the general direction of the group but had not meant to hit anyone with it.” I wonder how long it took him to conjure that one up… possibly only outdone by the brilliant piece of reporting that one of the group “had a blow-up doll with him and that seems to be the crux of what happened.” Move aside F E Smith and William Boot!

Read the full masterpiece here. Ah Oxford. I love you sometimes…
