Bathroom anger

Norwich Evening News: Couple's battle for bathroom sink ends in woe, smelly fingers*

If all else fails, my advice is to follow the leader of the council home and crap through his letterbox, it being the only language these curs understand.

* Yes, I realised how filthy this sounds the moment I wrote it. That's why I haven't changed a word

Closed bridge anger

York Press: Shopkeeps' fury as vital bridge is closed

This picture screams one thing, and it is this: NORTHERN

Beach hut anger

Bournemouth Echo: Old Bill goes ballistic after beach hut break-ins

Guilty secret: Our summer holiday in sunny Frinton-on-Sea would not be complete unless we could break into an unlocked beach hut and enjoy the facilities.

We're still on the run following this outrage.

Car break-in anger

Dorset Echo: Arms-crossed in fury as thieves steal handbag from front seat of car

If you're looking for someone to blame, point the finger at those curs at Autoglass. They have clearly sold you a bin liner instead of a window.

Dog fight anger

Tri-City Herald (US): Angry people demand new laws against dog fighting

This must be the weirdest picture we've ever had for this site. What - I ask - is going on?

Red-hot pointing action from one of our favourite local titles. Excellent job, there.

Bad e-fit

Don't have nightmares.

Bad E-Fit

Avon and Somerset Police: Man wanted for series of burglaries

Help the local fuzz in the West Country nail this scrote who has been taking things that don't belong to him. Talk him into turning himself in, getting a decent haircut so he doesn't look like my dog.

Don't have nightmares.

House break-in anger

Northern Echo: Householders sad, a bit angry after break-in

We don't really like doing shots of victims of crime as it appears we might be mocking them. Which we are not. However, this story cannot pass without noting the superbly-posed shot.

If anyone knows who did this crime, the usual advice applies: Rip their heads off and pour HP Sauce down their necks. That is all.

Dog poo anger

This is Bristol: Woman in poetry war over dog mess

There was a young woman from Bristol

And wrote something absurd
Something else that rhymes with Bristol.

God, this poetry lark's tough.

Bakery robbery anger

Ballarat Courier (Aus): Local bakery target of smash-and-grab raid

Nothing - but nothing - gets in the way of angry punter's bet on the dogs. Still, he'd better get that massively swollen hand looked at.

Locked gritbox anger

Brighton Argus: Fury as council refuse to open grit box

Look at it from the Council's side. They told everybody that the grit was for road use only. But they HAD to kick the arse out of it and use it for their budgies. They've only got themselves to blame.
