Out Like A Shot
I had a great laugh at this spoof Reuters report in Private Eye, the UK's best and only fortnightly satirical magazine.
PISTORIUS 'OUT LIKE A SHOT'
There was widespread joy throughout South Africa after Oscar Pistorius smacked the world record for getting out of jail after killing a girlfriend.
"Oscar's time inside of just one year obliterates the previous record. This is a real shot in the arm, in the abdomen and in the face for South African sport," said his agent. "No one expected Oscar to get out quite this fast. He has a criminal record that'll be hard to beat."
Pistorius defended the decision to release him from prison, pointing out that he would be under house arrest.
"How much trouble can I get into at home?" he said. It's not as if I have a history of causing mayhem within these four walls."
