Labour managed to narrowly win the by-election in the suburban ward, which was called after the party’s councillor was removed after failing to attend any meeting for six months.

3. But the stand-out performance was by David Bishop, aka “Lord Biro” of the Bus Pass Elvis party, who beat the Lib Dems by 11 votes.

4. 67 people voted for his Bus Pass Elvis manifesto. Key points included:

Legalise brothels with a 30% reduction for OAPs.

Our candidate would like to see an enquiry into British Vets Fees, the highest in Europe.

Bring back the Dog License to curb irresponsible dog owners.

Save Public lavatories from extinction.

The Lib Dems got just 56 votes in the ward, which is close to a campus of Nottingham Trent University.

5. The Nottingham Post snared the exclusive interview with the triumphant Lord Biro, who only found out the result this morning:.

I actually had a few drinks last night at the (Lincolnshire) Poacher, got a bit drunk and had an argument with a group of Labour supporters and ended up getting chucked out.

It’s not the best news for the Liberal Democrats. But perhaps people actually liked my policies of legalising brothels with a 30 per cent reduction for OAPs and holding an enquiry into the cost of vets fees.

6. But perhaps the success of the Bus Pass Elvis party is no surprise when you see Lord Biro’s unique campaign posters:

This is us, before suhoor, between suhoor and maghrib, and after maghrib.

And while sometimes the monthly monster can be the reason for it…

It’s awkward for everyone involved when you always assume it’s Aunty Flo. Here are some reasons you should stop:

1. Maybe the lass is going on a tiring road trip.

Travelling is hard without snacks. Also, there can only be one kind of ‘fast’ at a time.

2. Or has a long, exhausting cross-continent flight.

The luggage is too heavy and the timezones too confusing.

3. She could be sick too.

It’s not like she wanted it to happen, trust me.

5. She forgot she’s fasting and accidentally ate lunch.

And drank a variety of sodas…accidentally.

6. Dismal self-restraint is also a common reason.

Imagine fasting without suhoor… *shudders*

8. She took a blood test.

Or donated blood, or got a flu shot. Whatever, we all know what religious scholars say about fasting and syringes.

9. She got injured (not in the uterus).

There is blood. Let’s focus on coming out of the clinic alive first.

Man Picks A Fight With An Ibex And I Cannot Stop Laughing At Its Response

Getting into a fight with an animal really doesn’t sound fun at all, but this guy’s experience proves how hilarious the situation can really be.

While I don’t have the slightest clue what he was saying as he approached an ibex and tried to start a conversation, it’s obvious that the goat wasn’t pleased at all by what it heard. Turn up your volume and get ready for a good belly laugh, because this furry comedian could seriously make anyone crack up.

This is probably the sassiest animal I’ve ever seen.
