Well, it’s Sunday and I don’t feel like writing anything epic, so I bring you a few news highlights from this week. The single most common comment I get on these Angry News videos on YouTube is “I never heard about this, I’m glad you bring us these stories.” I think it’s some strange combination of amusing and tragic that I’m the most trusted news source on YouTube.
This first story is about a guy who would have been a sure-fire Darwin Award winner if only he had died.

This next story was inspired by the sort of headline you really don’t want to see too often: “Killer missing from mental hospital”:

To round things off, this last video isn’t a news story. It’s another of my Melbourne travelogues, this one has been quite popular on YouTube – it shows off a range of the graffiti art about town.

Please do an agry news segment on this when your feeling inspired. http://www.usatoday.com/news/offbeat/2006-11-10-brit-bum_x.htm
I loved the video about the street art. Is it a crime in Australia? It is in the USA. There are many people in jails and prisons for it. I think they are incredibly talented and should find canvas and become millionaires.
After re-reading your last post…..If you can get three minutes of material from the link I posted earlier and the saltwater crock you’ve got it I think. Maybe do comedy bit on Darwin Award winners. Maybe even have some little trophies for the “Numb Nut Winners.”
Just a thought. Sorry I didn’t post on the other blog.
marr: yep another darwin award entrant. I thin one of the papers here had a video of this idiot on their website, I’m gonna look for it. If it’s the same one I actually think he was a soldier! Thanks for the suggestions re stupid people and a routine, sounds good! 😀
Sandra: yeah it’s a crime and a lot of people get arrested here too. A lot of the big stuff is done with the building owner’s permission, a lot more is done with a nudge and a wink but occasionally there are arrests. I’m going to do another one and include more stencil art that melbourne is famous for.
