Does having a client nicknamed 'the poison dwarf' count?

There was a dwarf doing balloon animals at some Xbox game launch where all the drinks had a green theme about 4 years ago now. That was great.

isn't anyone at least a little excited? not by the prospect of loads dying - but by the prospect of a copper running around london trying to defuse the bombs. It's like Van Damme's comeback film Sudden Death or Die Hard 3: Die Hard with vengence. I hope the copper has a dirty white vest and a comedy sidekick. Yippee Ky Yay Mother f...

Ripe for a tastless PR stunt for the new Die hard film

Note that I'm not the hummourless boundaries chap/ess.

But it got me thinking about one of the responses. I haven't used a dwarf but have used a trio of transvestites, someone with multiple sclerosis, a haemophilliac and Fred Housego.

The plot thickens. Park Lane to Hyde Park Corner has been cordoned off because of suspicious vehicle.

Knowing the locals it's probably just a Nissan Sunny and they're worried a commoner may be loose.

Having just read BBC online's lead story on the Haymarket thingy I wanted to flag it as a terrible piece of journalism (because it makes a change from flagging bad PR...)

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/6252276.stm

It reports on an avoided incident and calm, appropriate emergency proceedures. It then quotes two BBC correspondants (since when is it acceptable to quote your own colleague as an expert on your story) being incredibly sensationalist. My favourite snippets are:

The BBC's security correspondent Frank Gardner said ... that the driver of the car was now Britain's "most wanted".

The BBC's Daniela Relph, at the scene, said the heart of London was completely closed off.

>>"Are there any?"<<

dwarves - there's plenty. You never seen Time Bandits..??

Personally, I have many times driven like an idiot with a couple of propane bottles and/or a couple of jerry cans of super-unleaded in the back of the motor - doesn't make me a terrorist.

How on earth anyone can take this seriously is beyond me. I thought terrorists were supposed to keep a low profile? This dickhead sways down haymarket like a pissed MP, parks like a delivery driver and then legs it without turning his lights off.

You couldn't make it up. Oh hang on, I think they did.....

2007-06-29T14:16:00.000+01:00

It's ridiculous, isn't it?

Used to be that a fella could quite happily drive around central London a little bit drunk with a couple of refills for his SodaStream in the boot. Now he gets pinged as a suicide bomber.

It's political correctness gone mad.

TWL - I just meant in general, not this case which is of course spot on.

"Would you be laughing if it had gone off? Boundaries...."

Uhm no, I doubt any one would be, unless they were sick in the head. Making fun out of bad situation is part of the British psyche.

No, we wouldn't...but it didn't, so we did. And what's with the cricket thing?

There seem to be an awful lot of references to Edelman on here. Maybe you should spread the bile around more TWL?
