I find a lot of things kind of funny and I often say what’s on my mind, and then get nine texts from all my friends going, ‘What’s the matter with you?’ But I haven’t ever made a big attempt to have any particular image.

road.jpg Barney Frank calls for decriminalization of small amounts of marijuana on Real Time with Bill Maher: “Frank offered no details on his legislation, and it’s not at all clear that he could ever get it to the House floor for a vote. A Frank aide was unaware of his plans other than his statement on HBO. Frank has introduced legislation in previous years to allow the use of ‘medical marijuana,’ although the bills never made it out of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Asked by [Bill] Maher as to why he would push a pot decriminalization bill now, Frank said the American public has already decided that personal use of marijuana is not a problem. ‘I now think it’s time for the politicians to catch up to the public,’ Frank said. ‘The notion that you lock people up for smoking marijuana is pretty silly. I’m going to call it the ‘Make Room for Serious Criminals’ bill.'”

road.jpg Welsh TV birdwatcher Iolo Williams says his tight-fitting shorts have found him a new audience: “The dad-of-two, married to wife Ceri, told Wales on Sunday: ‘A friend of mine, a girl who lives in Newport, told me about one of her mates who is gay, and said they have an informal gay club. One thing they did was tape my S4C programmes wearing my tight shorts and would get together in a bar to watch it. I was a little bit surprised at first but absolutely delighted. If they all watched my programmes it would probably double my audience!’ Game-for-a-laugh Iolo said he’d would be more than happy to pop out for a pint with his newfound fanbase.”
