HEALTH & SAFETY STRIKES AGAIN-CHEESE ROLLING EVENT CANCELLED!


An annual cheese rolling race that attracts thousands of spectators has been cancelled due to health and safety fears.

This year's event, scheduled for May 31st, will not take place because of police and local council concerns about overcrowding on Cooper's Hill, near Gloucester, organisers announced.  "We have had to cancel on the advice of the police and local authorities this year because of the issues of health and safety and other aspects," said Richard Jefferfies of the organising committee.   Following a 200 year old tradition, competitors run down the treacherous 1:2 gradient hillside in pursuit of bouncing 7lb Double Gloucester cheeses. Injuries are common and the sheer volume of spectators jams roads, prompting complaints from locals.

What a land we live in when a man can't chase a fucking cheese down a hill because some COUNCIL JOBSWORTH tells him it's dangerous.  Stick the cheese up his COUNCIL ARSE!  OR IS THERE NO ROOM IN THERE BECAUSE HE'S GOT A TOWN HALL UP IT ALREADY!

I'm glad to say that the annual 'Fight to the death for a spicy curry pot noodle' event is still to be held in John Finnie Street in Killie.

I heard that last year in Ayr the annual 'debate for tofu' event turned nasty and the cops had to disperse the crowds by firing bars of Imperial Leather into the crowd...

Oh well another tradition bites the dust because of cunts and wankers; how much longer for these

Rab, and very tasty they were too. My family has been eating them all year. They're lovely with a few chips or if you fry and then simmer a few onions in butter, add the Imperial Leather and hey presto you have French Onion Soap.
