North Tonight.....ace!

Recommended Posts

Did anybody else just see North Tonight's report on the head and hand found on Arbroath beach?

They went to the weather report, but left the visuals running of the 'bits' being carted off in a big blue bag. Meanwhile the weather guy was telling us it was a real 'mixed-bag' of a day (visuals of body bag still onscreen).

Wonderful stuff:up:

The wee kids must've got a shock!

(I was going to say they were probably 'hacked off' at their day being ruined, but it'll be something they can tell their grandchildren about).

Wonder which bits will turn up next?(

"I can imagine the children would be quite surprised and shocked, it would be quite grim for them"

Understatement quoted from page three of the Evening Express on Tuesday the first of April 2008

Also members of the public were warned they face seeing a large police presence in the area....

Ha. I think North Tonight is repeated in the middle of the night for insomniacs, alcoholics and angry loners.

Apparently the kid's dad said he would never get ahead in life playing about on the beach.

Alan, I read a report saying that they expect the main part of the body to turn up next, (t)or so they say.

I reckon it was her boyfriend...he got her 'off her head' so he could indulge in some necking.

(Actually I've a song which is very close in subject matter to this....I sang it at Kilau and a table of Christian game-players got up and left).

at least they didn't find an arse in a bag, that would have been a real bummer.

or some chopped up genitallia, I would have felt a bit of a prick, handing that into the bobbies.

Nicely lowered there Phil:up:

On the Stand Free forum someone said it 'obviously wasn't a bag for life'.

I'm hoping Arbroath will use it as a tourist attraction on posters...

"Head to Arbroath beach"

"Arbroath.....never an 'off-hand' experience"

"Arbroath - a great place for beachcombing. You take the comb, we'll provide the heads"

I heard there was a local avant garde hat maker who makes fine head pieces, lost one on the beach and a local jamaican beach comber found it, and it was not to his taste, (he was heard to say: )

"de cap, I hate it!"

I think I'll go for a lie down now.

Didn't they find a few bits at Broughty Ferry a few weeks back? Wonder if these are connected?

They maybe used to be, but they're not any more....

that didn't take the police long...

I wonder if a liverpuddlian lost "our hand?"

The head in the bag....I wonder what the kids are thinking when they clocked her face?

(Sorry Elwood...I just read your post after I fired on in... I loose!)

I wonder if finding a second hand in a sand dune is like finding a needle in a haystack?

So Arbroath is now a place for skull-duggery in a very under-hand way?

I'm sure the local residents will be up in arms about this.

Perhaps I'm going out on a limb here and all it ent®ails

I missed that, but, having just checked, I found it was the leg of a male. I hope this isn't the start of some new-fangled youth craze, with bags of body parts appearing on all east-coast beaches. Still...beats hula hoops, or clackers, or deely-boppers I suppose.

I'm surprised there haven't been any 'Beachy Head' headlines.

'member they found a head on Barrasie Beach in Troon a few years back as well. I was on that beach just not long before they found it. Creepy. Weird place Troon. I was there on a night out visiting friends, I went to the toilets in a night club (the only nightclub), some bloke tried to get off with me, then the next time I went to the toilets I got head butted by some random, then back in the bar I met probably the ugliest, fattest chick I've ever seen, who I then went home with and shagged in her creepy bedroom that was done up like a little kid's bedroom and was fll of teddies and dolls, afterwards she locked me in her house and wouldn't let me leave, I had to make a break for it and I ended up wandering around the streets for two hours cos I had no idea where I was staying. Fun times!

(Edit - actually having looked it up that wasn't a few years ago, it was in 1999)

what you need to do, is murder someone, decapitate them, and drop it on the beach, Nonchalantly walk past it on the way back "ooh, look!...a head"

works every time I do it.

This was a genuine story? I thought it was an April 1st con-job.

Sounds a good idea!! I was actually thinking of something similar, but dropping the bag from the cliffs at Cove, but then I remembered I don't have a head for heights.:down:
