Mayor hits tomato in leapfrog accident

When the opening line of a news article reads,

“The Lord Mayor of Belfast has apologised to a council worker left with back injuries after he tried to leapfrog her during a photoshoot. “

you know you’re in for a treat.

WHen it’s followed up with

“Lorraine Mallon suffered a slipped disc when Jim Rodgers’ knee accidently hit her head as he attempted to vault her.

Ms Mallon had been dressed as a tomato to launch a gourmet garden event in Botanic Gardens last month.”

you have to read on.  And when it’s illustrated with photos you know you have to visit the BBC news report here.

    • Brilliant.
      One of my friends is a Tory MSP. he told me when he was agent at a council election that the ballot paper had a drawing of a sad face next to the Labour candidate; a sad face next to the SNP candidate; a sad face next to the Lib Dem candidate; and next to the Tory candidate was a sad face with lots of tears, a tongue sticking out and a noose around the neck. He argued that as more time had obviously been spent on the Tory drawing it was obviously one for him 😉
