I thought I’d take a break from politics for a moment, to present you with this story out of Wichita, which illustrates why drinking and giant inflatable penises don’t mix:
Officers were patrolling the Old Town area on horseback at about 1:20 a.m. when they came across a large group of women in their early- to mid-20s who had been celebrating at a bachelorette party, police said.
Also in the group was a 24-year-old man, a brother to one of the women at the party. He was carrying a 5-foot-long inflatable penis, police said.
“While he was joking around with this toy, he launched this large toy toward one of our officers, who was on horseback,” police spokesman Gordon Bassham said.
The toy struck the officer’s horse, causing the horse to get spooked, he said.
Police arrested the man, of Eastborough, on suspicion of battery of a law enforcement officer, in this case, the horse.
Unfortunately, things escalated:
A woman, upset at the arrest, grabbed the arresting officer’s arm, police said. She too was arrested.
While the crowd was being dispersed, another woman in the party was arrested when she struck a horse’s head, police said. The horse stepped on the foot of that woman, who was treated on the scene, then taken to jail.
No word on what became of the inflatable penis.

From the UK Sun:
CHEEKY student Rory McInnes did some DIY at the family home — painting a 60ft WILLY on the roof.
Guess what “willy” is a British slang for.
