Today in Scotland a street campaign was launched warning the public of a highly toxic and dangerous man who is currently visiting the country. The public are advised not to approach this man under any circumstance or listen to any of the shite that spouts out of his mouth. The man is wanted for inciting racial hatred and very bad hair.
In other news, Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump has arrived in Scotland.
Here’s a shocking video—captured on a cellphone—of employees of the Chinese Rural Commercial Bank lined up on a stage and spanked by their manager for not “exceeding themselves.” This was all done in front of their colleagues to publicly shame them for poor work performance.
The eight employees were each reprimanded by their manager and made to announce to their colleagues why they were underperforming. He then goes behind them and brutally smacks their bottoms with a large ruler.
After one round of spanking, the manager yells at them again before delivering another round of painful blows
Naturally, the video is coming under fire and demands for the unnamed worst manager of 2016 to be fired are something fierce. Good, this is outrageous! Imagine such a thing happening at Bank of America?
Michael Galinsky has documented many moments of political tension, from Klan rallies to Occupy Wall Street. Tagging along with a friend who worked for Reuters, Galinsky showed up at the Donald Trump rally in Greensboro, NC on Tuesday. He applied for press credentials as they were driving to the venue, although his plans from the beginning were to shoot something more akin to Jeff Krulik and John Heyn’s “Heavy Metal Parking Lot,” the legendary underground film made in the parking lot of a 1986 Judas Priest concert.
But whereas “Heavy Metal Parking Lot” is bust-a-gut hilarious stuff, Galinsky’s quietly observational footage of the Trump rally will probably just make you sad. He writes:
I had applied too late which was fine, but I still tried to talk my way in because there wasn’t much happening outside. When that didn’t work I sat down in the shade to figure out a plan of action. After about a minute of watching people trickle towards the venue, I heard a man yelling, “White Power!” I grabbed my camera and approached. He was wearing a big cowboy hat and a Willie Nelson shirt with Willie giving us “the finger.” Still, I wasn’t sure if he was being ironic until a minute later when the cops approached. They explained that we as citizens do have “free speech,” but that his incendiary language was dangerous and therefore prohibited. It was kind of a surreal conversation (see the video), and as I listened, it dawned on me that I wasn’t going to be allowed there much longer either. I was right. After they gave him and his friend the heave-ho, I was told I had five minutes to leave. I tried once again to get in with credentials, then I headed for the parking lot.
I often enter these situations with a vague idea of what I plan to shoot but try to remain open to what comes. I ran into a guy selling shirts and talked to him for a bit. They were vulgar, anti-Hilary shirts and people heading into the event loved them. I started to think about the people who sold things at the event and followed this up with another guy selling shirts. A few moments later, I saw a group of people who were representing the Militia Movement. I talked to them for a bit, and then a roving protest showed up. It was a loud mass surrounded by police. Having spent time with the militia guys, I observed the protest from their perspective for a while.
This event was taking place just days after the horrific events in Orlando, and this was largely an LGBTQ-led protest. After having filmed at dozens of protests, I get a little spooked around cops. These guys were generally working with kid gloves, but I still felt a bit unsure about going to shoot with the protesters as they were surrounded by masses of cops. I’m a “non-credentialed” journalist, and as such, I’m more at risk in these situations, so I try to be very cautious. The protesters set up shop across the street, and I made my way across the street to shoot a couple of people being interviewed by a local news channel. I like to shoot media doing interviews because it gives a context to the situation and how that situation is being portrayed.
And now without future explanation, because of course, none is really necessary, witness the pathetic gene pool who support Biff Tannen sorry, er President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho whoops, I mean Donald Trump as they cavort and gather and hoot and holler in “Trump Parking Lot.”
This is one of those “I feel terrible for laughing at this” but admittedly… I did have a bit of a chuckle at this poor man’s expense. Stuart Boyd of Salford, Greater Manchester, eagerly awaited his new passport which was ordered on May 22 after booking a trip to the Greek island of Rhodes in July with friends. When Boyd’s passport finally arrived in the mail, he was dismayed to see that his reproduced photo looked a lot like a certain Nazi leader. Boyd was so bothered by the his new Hitler-esque moustache that he contacted the Passport Office.
Crestfallen Stu said of his unfortunate passport pic resemblance to der Fuhrer:
“To be fair the woman was very pleasant and helpful. She said they obviously didn’t intentionally make me look like Adolf Hitler and told me to send it back so they can issue a new one.”
A spokesperson for Her Majesty’s Passport Office said: “All UK passports are carefully created and checked to exacting standards before they are issued. We will be contacting him to investigate this case further.”
Well, at least his passport photo didn’t make him look like Donald Trump…
A Clover, South Carolina man was arrested on Wednesday after police saw his Craigslist ad offering to sell weed.
According to local drug enforcement officers, James Kinley III, posted a Craigslist ad titled “Pot… I SELL WEED - $200.”
The text of the ad:
Whole zip lock bag of Loud Smoke
Half an bag is $100
1/4 of a bag is $50
I got it
The ad included his PICTURE and PHONE NUMBER.
A police officer texted the number asking if the ad was real. The would-be dealer reportedly called the officer back, asked what he needed, and arranged a meeting.
Kinley arrived at the specified meeting place to sell the officer a half ounce of weed and was promptly taken into custody.
It’s not clear whether the man thought weed was legal in South Carolina (it’s not), or if he thought that cops don’t have access to Craigslist (they do), but it’s likely that Mr. Kinley broke the cardinal rule of drug dealing: getting high on your own supply.
An employee from a Columbia, South Carolina Krispy Kreme is the subject of disciplinary action following an incident in which he refused to serve a customer, reportedly, solely because the customer was a cop.
A Richland County Sheriff’s Department deputy was denied his cop fuel and his department later issued a statement confirming the incident and stating, “the poor actions of one employee does not properly represent the views and values of the community, business, [or] organization as a whole.”
Krispy Kreme’s District Manager, Mechelle Carey, sent an email to the Sheriff stating “the employee has been dealt with serious disciplinary action,” further apologizing to the department, stating that Krispy Kreme has a long-standing relationship with law enforcement, military, and first responders.
The Sheriff’s Department believes this was an isolated incident, and the details of disciplinary action against the employee have not been made public.
So, was this doughnut denier a hero or a dick? Tell us in the comments.
Anyway, here’s NOFX with the greatest cop/doughnut anthem of all time:
When I was on the freeway, doing 70 all drunk
A copper pulled me over, and I thought that I was sunk
He came up to my car, I thought up a little trick
I took a doughnut, jelly filled, and put it on a stick
He came up to my window, and shouted to get out
So I quickly took the doughnut and I shoved it in his mouth
So I drove away, he shouted for some more
So I threw it out the window and he ate it off the floor
Cops and doughnuts
Cops love doughnuts
Cops love doughnuts
Cops and doughnuts
Back in March, a doll was discovered floating in waters near the Banggai islands in the Sulawesi province. A local sea fisherman spotted the floating doll and decided to rescue it. The fisherman took the doll home and his family took care of it. Photos of the doll started to spread online with claims that it was an “angel” or a “spirit.”
Indonesian news portal Detik said photos of the doll dressed demurely and wearing a hijab spread on social media shortly after its discovery.
Rumours then began to spread that it was a “bidadari” along with unverified stories about how it was found “stranded and crying”, prompting the police investigation.
Many across Indonesia continue to hold strong beliefs in the supernatural, including the existence of “bidadari”, which is a type of angel or spirit.
Indonesian police investigated the “angel” claims and discovered the the doll was indeed and inflatable sex toy.
Local police chief Heru Pramukarno told reporters that villagers had found the doll shortly after the rare March solar eclipse that swept across South East Asia.
The timing of the discovery led some to believe the doll had a divine provenance.
“They have no internet, they don’t know what a sex toy is,” the police chief was quoted as saying by AFP news agency.
I dunno if this is an inflatable sex doll or not. She looks like she’s made of solid silicone. Still, it’s an honest mistake, if you ask me. Could’ve happened to anyone… because anything can happen for those who BELIEVE.
The short story here is that there was a contract dispute between two competing construction companies and that these six guys—like low tech Transformers—really went for it. That’s probably all the backhoe backstory you need to be armed with to thoroughly enjoy this clip of these duelling KILLDOZERS on the streets of China.
The moral of this story? Never piss off a man driving a bulldozer, even when you are driving one yourself…
Five-year-old Ardian Azka Mubarok smokes at his home on March 27, 2015.
Perhaps you’ll recall that viral video a few years back of an obese Indonesian toddler chain-smoking cigarettes like a nicotine fiend. Some found it “funny” to see such a young kid puffing away like an old pro. Others were shocked and appalled. I mean, how could a toddler be a chainsmoker?! But the thing is, apparenlty seeing young children smoking is a very common sight in Indonesia and “public-health activists describe the country as a ‘playground’ for big tobacco companies like Philip Morris, which makes the country’s No. 2 cigarette.”
Young smokers begin the cycle of addiction but at a health cost for generations to come. The juxtaposition of young boys smoking like seasoned addicts is jarring yet this project is intended to not only shock and inform viewers but to demonstrate the lack of enforcement of national health regulations and to question the country’s dated relationship with tobacco.
Photographer Michelle Siu captured this dark phenomenon with photographs. The series is called “Marlboro Boys.”
Students on a public bus.
Five-year-old Ardian Azka Mubarok easily purchases a cigarette which he will smoke near his home.
Stop me if you heard this one before: Meet 25-year-old Clearwater, Florida (natch) resident William Timothy Anderson Thomas who allegedly vandalized a home and then told cops he had “listened to too much music” and masturbated “too much,” which apparently caused him to feel like “going out and destroying stuff.”
Isn’t it supposed to work the other way around? Men! Florida men!
From the ____:
Largo police officers responded to a home at 2066 N. Belcher Rd. around 2 p.m. on April 8 after someone reported seeing a man smashing a mailbox.
When police arrived at the home, they say they found William Timothy Anderson Thomas, 25 on the property, shirtless and covered in dirt.
According to an arrest affidavit, a trailer tire had been flattened, a window on the house was broken, and a mailbox, a real estate sign and a garden angel were completely destroyed.
According to police, Thomas admitted to the crimes and destroying the property. “He also stated he had listened to too much music and masturbated too much.” What odd details to volunteer to officers of the law, I think we can all agree?
Thomas was arrested and booked in the Pinellas County Jail with the bond set at $7,000.
What I’m really dying to know is WHAT WAS THOMAS LISTENING TO???
Whitehouse? Mötley Crüe? The most recent Hanson album? I’ll bet it was something especially sick.
