    Saudi Arabia’s rulers threatened to make it easier for terrorists to attack London unless corruption investigations into their arms deals were halted, according to court documents revealed yesterday.

    Previously secret files describe how investigators were told they faced “another 7/7” and the loss of “British lives on British streets” if they pressed on with their inquiries and the Saudis carried out their threat to cut off intelligence.

    That Bandar Bin Bush – what a card!

    Holy fucking shit! I’m now amenable to the suggestion that Bush’s strategy has been to deflect attention and invade/bomb/threaten anyone but the real enemy. Once you’ve held hands with a man you can’t invade his country.

    That was delightful. “Let’s Get it On” by Marvin Gaye would also be great on helium.

    This probably shouldn’t amuse me. But it does.

    I’m a bad, bad person.

    If I’ve ruined your weekend, my job is done here.

    He must have practiced. Otherwise how would he know what pitch his voice was so that he could come in on key.

    First rule of manliness – farts is funny.

    Once you lose sight of that, time to pull the plug, Schiavo-style.

    At which time, you’ll probably let a big one rip, one last time, for your gathered family you’ve always tormented with them.

    My God, Wetten Dass is still on TV? They’ve been doing this sort of thing since. . . (checking). . . 1982. Pretty funny, sometimes.

    That will always be funny. It transcends age, gender, race, class. It’s the Magical Unity Pony of YouTube videos.

    Sullivan posts the oddest collection of random links. Yesterday, a hedgehog eating a carrot; today Ritchie on helium.

    Saw it on Sullivan’s site – and even before I clicked I knew it had to be British (or maybe Japanese, but for different reasons).

    I find it fitting that Birdzilla’s most coherent post ever is about inhaling helium.

    Panel members said that, in meeting with community members over the past two months, they found a great deal of confusion about when police will ask about a person’s citizenship and when they won’t.

    Now, they say, the rule is simple: Commit a crime and you’ll be asked. Don’t commit a crime and you won’t.

    I’ve seen some bullshit, and then I’ve seen this.
