Thursday

Hang about



I was aimlessly cruising the BBC website today when I came across a familiar face - that of the singer dude from Hot Chip. Turns out he's been making prank calls to the police in Wales. They got his name and sex mixed up, but it's definitely him. Look at the picture above.

"[He] agreed to electrode therapy which left [him] screaming in pain every time [he] dialled the third '9' of 999."

"But the court heard that it failed and [he] rang police claiming a bomb had been planted in [his] local supermarket."

"Prosecutor Richard Ace said [the bloke from Hot Chip] had called police control alleging there was a bomb at the Iceland store in Mountain Ash."
