Flaming squirrel nicked for blatant forgeries

While plods drop trousers, fine barmaid for breast extravaganza


An Australian bar maid has been fined A$1,000 dollars (£439) for entertaining customers by "crushing beer cans between her bare breasts", as well as "hanging spoons from her nipples". A lady of many talents indeed. Exception was taken to non-use of a standard Regicism, and the rest of you slathered for pictures:

Chesticles? What happened to Bulgarian Airbags?

This is useless without pics. After all, without pictures how could be possibly decide if the law was justified? Depending on the state of them, they might have been doing the crowd a favour making her keep them under wraps.

So does that mean that we can have "Australian can crushers" as an alternative to Bulgarian airbags?

When I was a lot younger and at college we would while away our spare time eyeing-up the females. We came up with clasification for mam sizes.

1) Titties.

2) Boobies.

3) Breasts.

4) Jugs.

5) Gazongas.

Then some one chucked in "Anything more than a handful is a waste", at which point we all looked at our hands and realised we all had different sized hands. The solution was we invented the BSH that's the British Standard Handful. (34C, slightly bigger than my hand). Someone also said "Anything more than a mouthful is a waste" but that could apply other things as well, so it got binned

All seem to make more sense to me - poor girl was doing her bit to reduce the transportation volume of empty beer cans on their way to recycling (or to take less landfill space - your choice) and tried to retain her modesty with teaspoons so as not to offend.

I also vote for the 'oi Lester, where's the pic, then?' icon

A fiendish gang of master criminals are in front of the beak, charged with forging £1,000 and £500,000 banknotes. The fact that one of these tightly controlled and in extremely short supply, while the other never even existed is just further evidence of their alleged duplicity. The total value of the forged notes was £28bn, nearly three quarters of the £39bn actually in circulation.

Let's see. The forgeries weren't very good. One of the denominations never existed. The other was carefully accounted for, as you would expect of notes that valuable. The only denomination that was ever issued has now expired and could only be exchanged by the Bank itself as a favour and, therefore, subjected to closer scrutiny than would normally be expected of a note

So, is this some strange use of the word "audacious" of which the rest of us have yet to be advised? My Thesaurus fails to list it as a synonym for "mind-numbingly incompetant". A terrible oversight.

No doubt at some point they'll be describing the ringleader as a "mastermind", a synonym for "fuckwit" as any fule kno.


I've tried, I really have, but I fail to see the mental processes behind this:

Person A: "Let's print some 500,000 pound notes and go into a bank and try to exchange them."

Person B: "Brilliant! How can it possibly fail...?"

Seriously, for stupid crimes like this the guilty should be placed on public display in stocks for a few weeks, where the general public are allowed to mock and assault them with rotten fruit.

Looks real enough to me, but then again i'm a bit stoopid!!!!

I heard somewhere they were caught because they put Paris Hilton's picture on the notes.

Well, she is multi-talented, easily recognisable, and very regal in conduct. When you consider what some royals got up to in the past, anyway... ®

  • Meet Wizard Spider, the multimillion-dollar gang behind Conti, Ryuk malware
    Russia-linked crime-as-a-service crew is rich, professional – and investing in R&D

    Analysis Wizard Spider, the Russia-linked crew behind high-profile malware Conti, Ryuk and Trickbot, has grown over the past five years into a multimillion-dollar organization that has built a corporate-like operating model, a year-long study has found.

    In a technical report this week, the folks at Prodaft, which has been tracking the cybercrime gang since 2021, outlined its own findings on Wizard Spider, supplemented by info that leaked about the Conti operation in February after the crooks publicly sided with Russia during the illegal invasion of Ukraine.

    What Prodaft found was a gang sitting on assets worth hundreds of millions of dollars funneled from multiple sophisticated malware variants. Wizard Spider, we're told, runs as a business with a complex network of subgroups and teams that target specific types of software, and has associations with other well-known miscreants, including those behind REvil and Qbot (also known as Qakbot or Pinkslipbot).

  • Supreme Court urged to halt 'unconstitutional' Texas content-no-moderation law
    Everyone's entitled to a viewpoint but what's your viewpoint on what exactly is and isn't a viewpoint?

    A coalition of advocacy groups on Tuesday asked the US Supreme Court to block Texas' social media law HB 20 after the US Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals last week lifted a preliminary injunction that had kept it from taking effect.

    The Lone Star State law, which forbids large social media platforms from moderating content that's "lawful-but-awful," as advocacy group the Center for Democracy and Technology puts it, was approved last September by Governor Greg Abbott (R). It was immediately challenged in court and the judge hearing the case imposed a preliminary injunction, preventing the legislation from being enforced, on the basis that the trade groups opposing it – NetChoice and CCIA – were likely to prevail.

    But that injunction was lifted on appeal. That case continues to be litigated, but thanks to the Fifth Circuit, HB 20 can be enforced even as its constitutionality remains in dispute, hence the coalition's application [PDF] this month to the Supreme Court.

    FBI and co blow lid off latest PHP tampering scam

    The FBI and its friends have warned businesses of crooks scraping people's credit-card details from tampered payment pages on compromised websites.

    It's an age-old problem: someone breaks into your online store and alters the code so that as your customers enter their info, copies of their data is siphoned to fraudsters to exploit. The Feds this week have detailed one such effort that reared its head lately.

    As early as September 2020, we're told, miscreants compromised at least one American company's vulnerable website from three IP addresses: 80[.]249.207.19, 80[.]82.64.211 and 80[.]249.206.197. The intruders modified the web script TempOrders.php in an attempt to inject malicious code into the checkout.php page.
