"A cry for help?"

Dude, like seriously tho', whit the fuck?

Worried fans of Irvine Walsh, author the best selling novel, Trainspotting, and other books that were less best-selling, issued a heart felt plea for a fund-raising effort to help a clearly-cash starved author. 
The call came when a picture emerged of Walsh dressed a shirt clearly made out of his grannie's old curtains. 
Professor Beaker of: Edinburgh's Centre For The Study Of Gadgies Fae Leith told The JT: "Its quite clear from the harrowing evidence shown that Mr Walsh is in reduced circumstances. Apart from stealing his grannie's front-room curtains, first put up in 1972, reports indicate that he is desperately fabricating a pair of loon pants  made of those lace-doillie things one's grannie insisted in draping all over her best chairs. And the settee as well."

Just one query: since when does anyone in Glasgow need drinking lessons?

And now, through the miracle of television, we transform a news item that gives the term "completely trivial" a bad name, into something completely different...

"A public consultation on a national tree for Scotland is to be launched.
Over the next three months the public will have the opportunity to say whether they would like a designated tree and if so, which species.
The idea for a national tree was raised at the Scottish Parliament's public petitions committee earlier this year by a member of the public." (From The BBC)

Also from The BBC...
