The best of this week's absurd news and fatuous people

Published on January 19th 2012.


Regular Einstein Awards

WE scour the local and international media to bring you the best and worst our planet has to offer. And the winner is…

 

Britishairways British Airways for the “How to Scare The Shit Out Of You” Award

A scene worthy of the movie Airplane occurred when passengers on a BA flight were mistakenly told they were about to crash into the sea. The crash message was accidentally played before BA staff tried to reassure passengers that were actually not all going to die.


Madonna-Vs-John Madonna for the ”Giving The Finger To Sore Losers” Award

Pop icon Madonna royally upset husband and husband couple David Furnish and Elton John when she bagged a Golden Globe for best original song. Prior to the winner being announced Elton graciously said “Madonna, no fucking chance” while post award Furnish called Madge “embarrassing” and “desperate”.


Sunday Times for the “Top Blagging” Award

A reporter for the Sunday Times rang up the Abbey National saying he was Gordon Brown and gained confidential financial information about the then Prime Minister. Ah your details are safe with the Abbey.

Cinema-goers in Liverpool for the “Dumbing Down Britain” Award

The Artist
may have been hailed by some critics as the best film of the decade but punters in Liverpool were not quite so impressed. The Odeon multiplex in Liverpool City centre had to refund customers after they complained that it was a silent film.


Random dog for the “Showing Off In Public” Award

Yes, not a week goes by without some cute or fluffy creature antics posted on YouTube. This week dog balancing on chain, enjoy.
