The judge said: 'It is quite clear to me that he wanted you to do things to him such as dripping hot wax on him and that he wanted to do things to you, which you did not want to happen.

'I've seen at least two implements which looked to the untrained eye as medieval torture instruments and not surprisingly you did not want to have pain inflicted upon you.

'I accept that you told him that but he persisted.

You seem to have a flair for spotting these beanstew! It would be interesting to know what sort of plastic arm it was, prosthetic, off a shop window dummy etc. Either way it's lucky it didn't cause an accident - it probably would have if I'd been driving and seen it.

Re the person marrying their cat, I'm sure I heard on the news that among the suggestions for laws that people would like repealed, one suggestion was that they should repeal the law against marrying your horse. Is there a specific law for that? :confused:

E-fit of 'lettuce head' burglar defended (http://uk.news.yahoo.com/4/20100921/tuk-e-fit-of-lettuce-head-burglar-defend-dba1618.html)

The image was issued by Hampshire police to try to trace a distraction burglar who stole 60 from an elderly woman in Stockbridge.

The culprit was described as being about 40 with wavy blonde, slightly greying hair.

However, the e-fit realeased by police has caused much laughter in the town as it showed the man with green hair, which local residents said looked like a lettuce.

Officers have admitted its not the "best quality" and blamed the unusual hair colour on technical problems
