The above fellow is named Janis Nords and is the male half of the restaurant visiting, non bill-paying, cigarette break taking couple featured by the rabbit here and here and known pseudonymously as 'Lupin'. Why a man is really named Janis is a mystery to the rabbit. Perhaps his parents were huge fans of Janis Joplin. Our man has now been before the criminal courts and avoided a custodial sentence. It turns out that our man is a film director of sorts - winner of best debut film at the 2009 Latvian national film festival for amateurs - but broke. Our man, the court was told, was anxious to impress his companion, described as ‘high maintenance’ and of wealthy family named Zane Berzina. She was not prosecuted as it was concluded that there was insufficient evidence she knew of the dishonesty Nords was engaged in. Hmmm...

La Berzina is standing by her man, which is nice. 'We are still together, absolutely. But I don't want to talk about what has happened. I don't need any publicity' she announced. Hauled before the Westminster Magistrates Court and after a night in the cells to reflect on the error of his ways, Nords admitted three charges of not paying for goods and services and asked for another six offences to be taken into consideration. He was sentenced to a community order with curfew, tagging and a bar from six London postcodes (the ones where the posh restaurants are). The court heard that Berzina was herself penniless and was very rude to police officers. One can only tut at such bad manners. His lawyer advised the court 'I also suspect there was an element of fantasy in Mr Nords' thinking...'


There's only one song to post with this...

On a completely different topic, the rabbit has just discovered Chinese artist Liu Bolin. What he does is seriously off centre. He paints himself - with a little help from an assistant - to blend in with his surroundings. Like so..


The above is Venice of course. And so...


Here is our man - erm - hanging by the telephone. And below is my favourite. Yup. He's there. Gets a bit Where's Willy by this point...


And here is our man 'hiding' behind someone else. Think about it...

Meanwhile the poor old bishop of Willesden has been suspended following - erm - somewhat excitable remarks about the forthcoming royal wedding. The date has now been fixed for the nuptuals, namely the 29th April. The date has an unfortunate precedent as the anniversary of the wedding of a certain Adolf Hitler and Eva Braun - a wedding that ended in homicide and suicide less than 40 hours later.

Here, through the wonder of copy and paste are the missing comments as explained in Phew! post...

Catch Her in the Wry - I have seen Bolin's work before. It's a bit creepy but fascinating.

tony - Janis could have avoided all this by disguising himself as a plate of foie gras............

Sybil Law - Liu Bolin - awesome!
And yes- as Tony said, he might've gotten away if he had Mr. Bolin's talent!

Personally, I don't like the date they chose. I mean why April 29?

The Chinese remake of Predator is really low-budget.

I never loved Eva Braun.
No, a thousand people say I did.
Yeah, she was just some girl who was on the make.
Boy she wanted to be so big.
And in the end it got to be a drag,
She's doing her exercises every day
No matter what people say,
I never loved Eva Braun.
