Friday 10th - Lots happening!

More Bonkers News!
European toilet paper gets passionate
LISBON (AFP) - After launching black toilet paper last year, one of Europe's biggest producers of household paper products has introduced a new red version for those wanting to inject more passion into their bathrooms.

Portugal's Renova introduced its new line of red toilet paper -- along with black paper handkerchiefs -- at upscale stores in Austria, France, Germany, Portugal, Spain and the Netherlands last month and it plans to make the items available in other markets, including the US, over the coming months.

"It is a red that makes a huge impact, like a Ferrari," Renova international brand manager Jose Manuel Pinheiro told AFP.

A company statement said the new shade of toilet paper would "target the most hip points in town," adding that red "is the colour of our hearts, of passion, lust, fury, laughter, anger, love, fire."

Of course after you have wiped your bum it's going to be brown...so why bother?

There is enough on today to keep just about anyone happy!

More New Parliament Cock-Ups
After the news about the £400 Million Scottish Parliament suffering from collapsing beams come the latest fiasco. The new Welsh Assembly building has sprung a leak . The frankly budget build that cost only£67 million, is the new home of Welsh democracy.

Water was seen dripping through the Welsh Assembly building's timber ceiling on to the slate floor near the entrance. Rain also leaked into a steel and glass staircase reserved for members and staff.

The Richard Rogers-designed Senedd was officially opened by the Queen on March 1st. The building has been in use since February 7th. Assembly sources said parts of the building had expanded and split under a prolonged period of sunlight.

So are architects and builders so incompetent that they are not able to predict that sometimes the weather will be sunny and then sometimes it might rain? The mind bogles! What next? The building turns out to be a bit draughty on windy days? Numpties!
