Grape Mrs. Carillon

I am a fervently aligned anti-Olympics activist in theory, though not in practice in any real sense, so I stayed home from the big demonstration the other day. Thus I missed the mysteriously poetic prediction depicted here:


I should get out more, but not really.

You gotta watch what you say in interviews...

An animal protection group is investigating claims made by British band The Fall[']s Mark E.

"Squirrels mean nothing to me. I killed a couple last weekend actually. They were eating my garden fence," Smith told Uncut magazine, although it was unclear whether he had confused the animal with their more prevalent American grey cousins.

The singer, whose group has gone through 50 different members and produced 27 albums in their career, also said he "wouldn't have a problem" with people purposefully driving over seagulls in their cars.

Is it still an inside joke if it's all over the internet?
