'splain this one
If there is a God, he has a weird sense of humor. I can't help it. When I read stories such as this one, I believe that the world is too got-dam ridiculous to... BELIEVE.
The Home Office has played down a suggestion that the government could stop a convicted rapist receiving his £7m lottery win. Iorworth Hoare, nearing the end of a life term for attempted rape, bought his winning ticket on day release.
Does anyone other than ME find that paragraph absolutely insane? How the hell do you near the end of a "life sentence" without being on your death bed, gasping for your last breath? WTF is this "day release" shit? The guy is a RAPIST, for crying out loud. Good job, government.
Plus, I see the irony in those dickheads letting this piece of shit out of jail in the first place and then wanting to take away his lottery winnings. He couldn't have bought the ticket if YOU DIDN'T LET HIM OUT. Don't bitch now. He won his prize fair and square, which is more than I can say for the justice system that allowed this travesty to happen.
And people ask me why I don't believe in God.
