Standing up in court

Back at home briefly on my world tour of deserving causes, I have to report on my sadness on the ending of the recent indecent exposure trial in London.
Every day a double entendre.
For example, on Monday they reported that they "hoped to wrap it up tomorrow". This is the BBC, mostly Radio 5. I hope they do all of this deliberately. At least the defendant, who was found not guilty did not have the bad grace to say that "it had been hanging over my head".
Another victory for justice. I cannot understand these laws. What kind of a democracy are we living in when a chap can't balance an aubergine on the end of his knob on the Hammersmith and City Line without someone taking offence?

Thank you for your continued support here at these times of sparse output. I will be back refreshed and verbose in due course.

See? This is what you get for deserting your public. The post has been here for hours yet I'm the first one who's bothered to stop by. I've only popped round to push your Telegraph through the door and let the dog piss on your lawn anyway.

Wasn't this the one about the judge?

Vicus Scurra said...

Yes, Richard, your loyalty is a balm to my troubled soul. I never liked those other bastards anyway.

Yes. It was a judge, and yes, it was like Catch 22, when he demonstrated the type of underwear he was wearing when he didn't expose himself.

Then he went off to court dressed up like a great big pudding. I find that offensive.

Pamela said...

Hey! Whaddya mean you never liked me anyway??

I'm wounded. Cut to the heart, I tell ya.

Old Knudsen said...

I just assumed you never liked me, now I'm happy to be validated you sick pervert.

Vicus Scurra said...

NO, NO, Pam and Mr K. Not you, the others.

I, like the view said...

I'd spread balm on your troubled soul, dear vicus, if you ever needed someone to!

:-)

I'm not a bastard, in any meaning of the word, so assume I'm exempt from your other comment. . .

*goes off with head in the clouds*

(oh, does richard have special powers? I'd only be able to push a paper thru a letter box. . .)

It took me a while to put it all together but I finally figured out that you Sir are in fact Baron Munchausen!

When you commented, "Your reality, sir, is lies and balderdash and I'm delighted to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever"

I said Hmmm where have I heard that before and then you blurted out,

"I have learned from experience that a modicum of snuff can be most efficacious"

and I said AHA!

I know that you thrive on adventure and verbosity so don't give me any of this sparse output "because I'm tired of the world and the world is evidently tired of me" baloney!

Vicus Scurra said...

ILTV, of course you are exempt, I meant the others. And yes, of course, Richard has special powers - who else could stand to read this rubbish?
HE - you are disturbed in a way that even I cannot comprehend. I think that I love you.

Dave said...

Just stopping by on my own journey of life to remind myself that there are others more troubled than me.

Vicus Scurra said...

Dave, I know, but they are all still welcome here, as indeed are you, where my wisdom provides some comfort in their troubled lives.

Richard said...

Can you shut down the internet for a bit, I have some work to do.

Vicus Scurra said...

No, Richard, you need to organise your priorities. There is no need to work, in the virtual world none of us need food or shelter.
You can tell me, however, whether that should be "none of us need" or "none of us needs". Stephen Fry favours needs as none means "not one" and is therefore singular.
This is important and we cannot proceed until it is sorted out.

Reg Pither said...

I liked his line on arrest. It was, words to the effect of, "I am a High Court judge. We don't do things like that!"
Au contraire. That's kinda how you get to be a High Court judge in the first place.

Dyna Girl said...

World Tour of Deserving Causes? Uh, hello? I am so a deserving cause. See you in say, 15?

zoe said...

i never understand what the old git, vicus, is jabbering on about anyway so i'll leave another one of my useless comments to get back at the old fart for sticking up relentlessly for my son.

you can have him.

Richard said...

One is as yet undecided

I, like the view said...

one is singular

(*sobs*)

none is singular, unless there are lots of them

Vicus Scurra said...

Thank you, ILTV, it is nice to get something so educational and so well explained here.
I suspect, however, that you have misunderstood the function of this blog.

oh, I don't think so. . .
