    Gamekeeper John is mentioned in this news article where they're trying to paint catapults / cattys / slingshots in a negative light. It's the ignorance of the article that irks me but it looks like the commenters are setting the record straight at least.

    WoW, first of all, what is a "yob"? In the second place, where do they think meat comes from for those banger things they have over there, and C, you just have to ask yourself "What would Eric Clapton do?".......

    LOL...Looks like the Daily Star is the only entity actually making money on these pics that they frame as horrific. All off the comments disagree with the tone of the article. I used to think that slingshot hunting was unethical until I learned just how accurate they can be. Now, I wanna do some slingshot hunting myself some day...

    We describe someone who has no respect for anyone or anything around them and is loud, annoying and obnoxious, the sort of person you just want to slap some sense into. Would also like to slap some sense into the writer of that article. I prefer the term bell end but they don't like to write that in the paper's.

    I hunt and eat what I kill but my personal preference isn't to pose for a picture or promote the fact I hunt, I show the animal respect buy eating it. I wouldn't pose for a picture with a pint of milk I just bought from the shop. That's just my preference.

    What's wrong with our newspapers? On the same page over across the pond you've got an article on slaughtering bunnies with slingshots, an ad for some nude sex dancing in Argentina and an article on the worlds weirdest yobs featuring a guy with make up carving a giant dildo. I'm quitting my subscription to the Chronicle and starting with the Daily Star!

    This is exactly why I dont read the papers. Moronic chit written by pompous self righteous arses. I would bet he is the president of the International Federation for the Universal Care of Rabbits ( I FUC Rabbits) for short. Sorry It makes me quite cross.
