Beard rage

Thanks to the DG for this Mirror item:

A DRIVER who tried to run down a pedestrian he thought was terror chief Osama bin Laden has been given a three-month suspended jail sentence. He jumped a red light and sped down a pedestrian street as he chased the bearded shopper. He only failed to hit the man when his car ran into some steps. The 35-year-old driver, who was not identified, told a court in Montpelier, southern France: “My fears over the global terrorist threat must have made me delirious… I accept now it wasn’t Osama bin Laden, but an innocent man who happened to have a long black beard.”

If the dents my bike acquired in France had ever gone to court, the defendant would probably have cited traumatic childhood memories of The King. Getting run down in France is like getting shot in South Africa or taxed in Sweden: it’s not personal.
