Continuing the recent fashion for clumping unlikely bedfellows together....

These 'B's were all reported on page 9 of the Daily Telegraph yesterday morning (21.1.04).

1. A boy aged 15 is believed to have made legal history, after being charged with raping his own mother (36). The boy (who admitted it) was appearing at Swansea Crown Court.

2. Susie, a ten-year-old Staffordshire bull terrier, has been left 20, 000 in the will of her former owner, Ruby Hughes, 85, of Yarnton, Oxfordshire.

3. Brit Air were responsible for the only fatal western European aircrash in 2003, when one of their jets crashed just short of the runway in Brest. The pilot was killed, but the other two crew and all the passengers survived.

The figure of 702 aircrash fatalities worldwide in 2003 is the lowest since records began in the 1950s.

From today's Torygraph.

Fewer burglars are sent to British prisons than motorists. 15,039 motorists were jailed in 2002, compared to 10,178 burglars. However, at any one time there are more burglars doing time than motorists. At the end of May 2003, there were 8,436 burglars inside, but only 2,601 motorists.

The Bloody Bastard is an ancient variety of pear which the Environment Agency is trying to revive by restoring 10 historic orchards in Gloucestershire. Other endangered fruit include the Hens' Turds apple and the Shit Smock plum.

The obvious question from that is 'Where would you find a Bloody Bastard, a Hens' Turd and a Shit Smock?'

Answer - in your fruit bowl. Alternative answer - in a historic orchard in Gloucestershire.
