Off target

Irony, a word derived from the French language, a word that popped into my head when reading about what happened at a prison in south-east France.

A daring, and arrogant, flying escape from a very tenacious French crook.

The Australian Broadcasting Corp reports:

French criminal jailed for having organised a helicopter-assisted prison break has again escaped from a French prison using a helicopter.

Pascal Payet, 43, escaped from Grasse prison, in south-east France, after a helicopter hijacked by four masked men landed on the roof of the prison, said a source close to the investigation.

The helicopter landed some time later at Brignoles, 38 kilometres north-east of Toulon, on the Mediterranean coast.

Those French dudes sure know how to escaping prison in style.

Now, just a thought, could it be possibly that Pascal Payet and his gang got the idea from an unlikely source…?

This is a clip from an old Australian TV soap called Prisoner, aired from 1979-1986.

You might want to skip to about half way through, otherwise you’ll have to sit through some really horrible Australian accents the generation of Aussies up from me seems to have acquired.

As you’ll see its really lame stuff, but could this story be a case of art imitating life?

Fun times for all.

And since we’re speaking of prisons and air travel…

It’s been reported that in Colorado, USA, a squad of 25 military paratroopers mistakenly landed inside the perimeter of a state prison in the early hours of the morning.

Prison guards quickly escorted the clearly disorientated troopers off the grounds “without violence”, glad to know.

Apparently the US Air Force is keeping a lid on it, officially saying that they are unaware of any such incident.

Update: The US military finally commented today, CNN reported, but were not generous with the details.

“Those were Special Operations Command forces conducting routine training,” Army Col. Hans Bush, a spokesman for the command at MacDill Air Force Base, Florida, said Monday. He declined to identify the units that landed at Fremont Correctional Facility but said the target was Fremont County Airport.

Man arrives for wedding 1 year too early, travels 5600kms before realising.

 The Crazy News Tool of the Week

Talk about unfashionably early.

An expat Welshman flew across the Atlantic from Canada, expecting to attend a wedding, only to find out when he arrived that it wasn’t to occur in 2007 but in 2008, British media reports.

David Best sent friend David Barclay an email at the start of 2007 which mentioned his wedding date of July 6.

Despite receiving no invitation, and thinking it was a bit odd to have a wedding on a Friday, expat teacher Barclay nonetheless booked his flights and jetted the 5600km from Toronto to Cardiff, in Wales.

“I booked my ticket, paid $1175 to fly into Cardiff, got the old suit cleaned, the goatee trimmed, the head shaved – I was going to be the belle of the ball,” Mr Barclay told BBC Radio.

“I called his mum to find his number and then I called him up and I said, ‘When and where is this wedding? It’s in a couple of days and I’d just like to know where I’m going.’

“He said to me, ‘Mate, it’s not this year, it’s next year. 2008 not 2007.”

Only then did a whole list of other strange occurrences start to make any sense.

“I called his mum up and she didn’t mention it at all. I didn’t get an invitation, it was just on an email and I mentioned it to a friend we’re both friends with and he didn’t know what I was talking about,” Mr Barclay said.

“All these things came together and I thought, ‘Oh no, you berk.’ I’m a year early and my mates are loving it, aren’t they?

“At least it has assured me a mention in the speech next year, I reckon. Same time next year – I’ll be there.”

Airline passengers from far and wide flying to and from Gatwick Airport near London, UK, have looked out their windows to see a massive outline of a woman pole dancer advertising a mobile phone pornography service.

The 100,000 square foot (9,300 square meter) advertisement is close to invisible onthe ground, but can be seen clealy from the air.

The giant ambush ad was made without permission from the local Tandridge District Council and a spokesperson for the local government said legal action would be taken if it was not removed.

Sports Media Gaming Ltd, the company who concocted the ad, said the council had no grounds for removing it. “I think they’re unsure about their own regulations to be honest,” said director Stephen Pearson.

The company said that it will refuse to remove the advertisment.

Paris Hilton has been transferred out of a medical ward at a Los Angeles County jail and returned to the all-women’s facility where she began her sentence for a probation violation more than a week ago, a sheriff’s official said Thursday.

After her brief release last week after just three days behind bars caused an uproar, a judge sent Hilton, 26, back into the jail system, starting at a downtown correctional treatment center where she was to undergo medical and psychiatric exams to determine where she should be held.

The official would not elaborate on where in that facility the heiress was housed. When she began her 45-day sentence on June 3, she was confined to a solitary cell in a special needs unit away from other inmates.

 Paris Hilton’s new home from now till the end of her jail term.

Paris was moved around 11 p.m. Wednesday, to the Century Regional Detention Center in Lynwood, the women’s prison where she had started out.

    Americas’ sweethearts….

Meanwhile,

According to OK! maganzine, the Paris Hitlon about face we all heard about from Barbara Walters earlier in the week, has got more to do with her finances than any real remorce.

“Paris finally saw that her spoiled brat behavior and repeated attempts to escape her sentence would turn fans against her, ruining lucrative endorsement deals,” OK! reckons.

A source tells OK!: “It’s going to be hard to find an organization that actually wants her.”

And to cap off this Paris bulletin, I only do it because my traffic goes through the roof…the Paris Hitlon Music Video Jail Spoof……

Yes, the fantasitc Paris Hilton spoof video is doing the rounds here on the interweb, if you havn’t seen it yet it well worth a laugh. So ladies and gentlemen, here it is…The ‘Paris Hilton Jail Spoof Music Video’
