Separated At Birth?

On a daily basis I will sift through the e-mails sent to me from readers of the blog. Some will be a heads up on a particular article or a video, some will be asking my opinion on a particular issue, some will be giving suggesting new ideas for the shop, but today I was sent something rather odd.

“NHS is exploiting my life” – claims transsexual read the headline. Weird. Why was I being sent this? I read on…

A TRANSSEXUAL, angry at an NHS advertising campaign that depicts a man wearing makeup, says her lifestyle has been exploited for the sake of a poster. Lucy Smith thinks the NHS should have been more sensitive to the transsexual community in Warrington when it developed a poster warning women drinkers they could end up looking like men.

“It’s hard enough living in Warrington without this,” said Lucy, a pre-op male to female transsexual. “People see the posters on the bus and it draws attention to me sat there. I walk down the street and everyone’s looking or shouting.”

Hmm. I scanned the article, looking for some United reference, or at least something to do with football, but to no avail.

Then I looked at the picture and it all made sense…

You’re thinking ‘where have I seen that face before?’ right? I’ll try and jog your memory. Think lots of tears, think slippy ground, think Peter Kenyon losers medal. Got it?

No hoax. Story here.

  21. micheal says:

    does anyone else agree that I saw one of the most grim games I have seen in a while, I am really not happy what I saw it has really pissed me off only the result and 120 minutes liverpool played tonight made up for that dross, nothing to do with everton what they are doing is insane, but liverpool have got to be the most one dimensional side I have ever seen in ages, I will be really upset if we finish below this crap, liverpool will go down in premiership history has the worse side ever to win the premiership if they do. it is like the old wimbledon or bolton winning it.

  22. Giles Oakley says:

    My old Grannie used to say, ‘Never mock the afflicted’. But then, she’d never seen John Terry. Classic!!

  28. bobkoh says:

    Goodness! The slip on the Moscow pitch must have altered his the part of his brains leading to this ‘inclination’! The next time at Stamford Bridge if JT grabs Ronaldo from behind with a rugby-style tackle it will not be just to prevent Ronaldo from scoring! Give him a PINK card, ref!

  29. johann says:

    Terry, is that u?? :)

  30. Stephen says:

    I would.

  31. james f says:

    Well, everybody has their dark side, as a good friend of mine once said!

  32. TheGriff says:

    We need to analise’ that penalty ‘ again !!
    Check if JT slipped over in his high heels !!

  33. -K-R- says:
