'Nuisance bombing'

This has to be the best phrase since 'friendly fire'. Its being used on the news in the context of 'this may not be a real bomb attempt, just a nuisance bombing'

oh look darling I lost a leg- never mind its just a nuisance bombing!

Pity post.

That really is a great example of dumbfuck journalism. Especially since it was pretty obvious from the beginning that it was a real attempted bombing gone wrong. Somehow I really doubt there are people out there saying "Lets detonate the smallest possible bombs we can find on the London transport systems. We don't want to hurt anyone, just annoy them a bit. I suppose if someone sprained their ankle trying to run away it would be quite nice though".

As it turned out they could have done more damage with a box of fireworks, but the intent is the important thing.

I was unaware there was any other sort.

Yeah. They're the kings are putting together completely retarded phrases to oversimplify the complicated and complicating the obvious.

My sister wanted to get a picture of all three of us, enlarge it and put it up on the front gate with a sign saying "BEWARE: DOGS" Which I thought was friendly

"Fuck off you cunt" has been my phrase of the day.

Fucking hell I hate bad sports.

Oooh. Can we also add "nuisance suicide" as in people who throw themselves in front of trains at rush hour.

I'd have said, "can we also throw in 'nuisance suicide'..."
jes, they're very annoying. I'd kill them myself to prevent them suiciding that way.

its an incredibly selfish thing to do. My mum has had loads of staff in the ambulance service go off with stress for months after they've had to hoover up the resulting pate. The train driver and the passengers usually end up traumatised too. Nasty.
