Mostly squidsex...





This blog is of course at the cutting edge of law blogging so it is necessary to report a criminal case now making its way through the courts in Swansea, Someone called Andrew Dymond is being prosecuted for possessing a collection of pornographic images. So far so routine. Save for one of the charges. Possessing an image of a man who is and I quote: 'performing an act of intercourse with a dead animal, namely an octopus/squid which was grossly offensive, disgusting or otherwise of an obscene nature'.


Uh huh...


I'm not sure if the squid being dead makes it better or worse.


He is on bail with a condition not to access the internet so if you are reading this Andrew Dymond.


You.


Are.


Nicked.

After that barrage of bad taste, here is another Vladimir Kush image to soothe the furrowed brow. It is called Ripples on the Ocean.





Plus, having covered - as it were - a large collection of dreadful album covers, here is one of the great album covers of all time. Robert Crumb's artwork for Big Brother and the Holding Company and Cheap Thrills. Complete with Janis Joplin truly belting it out on Combination of the Two.




And as a bonus 'cos it's the weekend and 'cos it's quality here is Janis with Piece of My Heart

That cover art freaked me right the hell out as a kid. Of course, now I own two copies and appreciate R. Crumb more.

The squid thing is the big yuck. Truly there are more sexual fetishes in this world than are countable. Jesus.

Sending love. Have a good weekend.

I could've gone my whole life w/o needing to know that someone had sex with a squid. Um, EW.

Fucking Squid fuckers! heh heh~

KAZ said...

The mind boggles - I'm wondering if his preference was for giant squid or the more petite feminine type.

And here I thought my clients were sick: this tops me.

And there was once a federal defender in the US (Philadelphia) who was reviewing the kiddie porn evidence with his client. I understand the client became somewhat over excited. Now, talk about bad judgment.

Hank/Tony - I keep having vague good intentions to blog about Crumb. Strange guy but quality cartoonist.

Sarcastic Person//JoJo - I'm sorry, I don't know what came over me. Honest.

Zengoof - welcome to my humble blog. I will be keeping a close eye on the progress of this case.

Kaz - I really don't know. Can't say I could fancy either type personally.

Laci - I've never had one that weird (yet). Though a few who were - erm -m -overenthusiastic as to the exhibits...

Catchy - We do our humble best :D

Big Brother and the Holding Company are a fine, fine band, nice to see you have great taste.

Hey WB,

PF here... I am actually Zengoof when I use my hubs computer. Mine was on the fritz so I was using his, and it just uses his screen name instead of mine.

Happy Sunday!

white rabbit said...

DHG - Thankies - we do our best.

Little Flower - Ah! Mystery solved. I wondered who it was but occasionally completely new people pitch up and I try to say hello :D

Happy Sunday indeed.

You should listen to the song "Gordon Brown be my Angel", about rape,

but I advise you not to eat, drink or drive when you listen to it.
Gordon Brown sent me a thank-you letter from 10 Downing Street. I am still looking for a lawyer.

Brahms Lullaby

Gordon Brown! Gordon Brown!
Will you be my angel?
Guardian angel is what I meant
Will you rescue my soul?

For you are in charge
Of these people I wrote to
Stephen Timms, Jack Straw
Let me place my trust in you

Gordon Brown! MP’s!
Let me sing out loud
For what you do, for my country
For my reproductive system

You right wrongs! My right’s been wronged
I am desperate for you
Not just you! There’s Jon Herring
I’m a violated woman

Gordon Brown, help me sleep!
Help me sleep like a baby
Will my babies ever come out?
Maternal desires!
I lost my womanhood
In a sinister curse
Gordon Brown! Bring it back!
You are perfect for that!

i forwarded the squid thing to my weird friends and even they think you're weird!
how weird is that?
and coincidentally the word verification isn't 'weird' but the random collection of letters 'umetr' unless it translates as 'you met her' and refers to an assignation with a female quid from outer space. i think we should be told.
