Bad blood boils over in Sea Point feud

By Douglas Carew, IOL

War has broken out between a ballet boutique and a neighbouring surf shop over masked mannequins, samba music and disco mirrorballs that apparently blind passing motorists. <a href=http://iol.co.za/index.php?set_id=1&click_id=13&art_id=vn20040821115442250C610767 target=_blank>more</a>

Just when I start to get really depressed over the state of the world, and that it seems to already be in the handbasket, I realize that we've actually gotten to the point where a topic that begins " South African Police Arrest...." can be posted in "Fun Stuff".

Yay for us!

Frankly I think the display of unauthorised mannequins could undermine the very fabric of society as we know it. In a similar vein, one of the greatest problems we face in the UK is banana theft:

Stolen banana trial costs £20,000

The Guardian

A man who ate a stolen banana appears to have made a monkey out of the Crown Prosecution Service after it emerged that his trial cost the taxpayer an estimated £20,000. The government's crime adviser yesterday described the case as an example of common sense going "out the window".

Paul Fletcher, of Gateshead, admitted eating the stolen banana when he was arrested during a night out.
