Some British bobbies have been reprimanded after they used their riot shields as makeshift sleds during the country's cold snap.

A passer-by filmed the bobbies goofing around on a snowy hill in Oxford and posted the clip on YouTube. It shows a policeman barreling downhill while another shouts, "Whatever happens, keep smiling!"

That shtuff is hillf****inglarious! Perhaps a bit risque for Wisconsin. I hate the weather freaks. Probably my biggest bitch is people who worry needlessly about the weather. If you can't wake up and look outside and determine what apparel is appropriate then call your mommy! By 8Th grade a Wisconsinite should be able to say "Hey! It's sunny. T shirt weather" Or "Crap! It's snowing, I'll put my boots and a jacket on" And don't even get me started on the government scare tactics. It's weather people! We have survived it since the dawn of man. Keep up the good work!

Sure, folks round these parts love hating on the fans from Minnesota and Illinois. But you can't deny, when it comes to the biggest douchebag fans in the NFL (or any sport for that matter), you can't beat the fans of the Philadelphia Eagles.

Check out this video of the warm greeting Eagles fans extended to a pair of 49er fans who attended Sundays game.

To those of you who thought our "Funeral-4-Favre" broadcast earlier this year was a slap in the face of Brett and his family, we present evidence that it was not. In fact, his wife was not offended, driven to tears or otherwise troubled by our silly antics. If you recall, we collected contributions for the Deanna Favre Hope Foundation at the event and we raised several hundred dollars to help victims of breast cancer. Here's Deanna's reaction:

'Twas about a month before Christmas
And outside his house
The world's greatest golfer was steering
Trying to get away from his spouse.

While the rest of us were nestled all snug in our beds
Elin was chasing him down the drive way, swinging a wedge at his head.
Tiger in his Escalade and Elin in a snit,
She was wielding a club and was ready to hit.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
Neighbors sprang from their beds to see what was the matter.
Away to the window they flew like a flash,
To see all the wreckage from where the world's greatest golfer had crashed.

He hit a hydrant and tree smashing his bumper and hood.
Guess he just couldn't decided between an iron and wood.
There he lay on the ground, unconscious and snoring some say
Was he really knocked out or in an Ambien haze.

Elin claimed she broke the back windows with the club
Because she was just trying to help.
But we're all pretty sure
She was taking aim at his scalp.

He was whisked off the hospital where his problem was diagnosed
He'd suffered superficial wounds and a drug overdose.
And after a few hours, Tiger was released
And able to go home to stonewall the press and police.

But the story it broke, so lively and quick,
We knew in a moment, Tiger was involved with some chicks.
More rapid than eagles his bimbos they came,
And the press whistled, and shouted, and called them by name;

Now, Rachel! Now, Jamiee! Now, Theresa and Mindy; all seeking their glory.
On Kalika! On Julie! On Holly and Cori!
To the tabloids they dashed after both fame and some wealth
To sell their pictures and stories all promoting themself.

But Tiger spoke not a word, only posted messages on his site.
About taking time off from golf and apologizing to his wife.
This is, without a doubt, an athlete in his prime.
Because only the world's greatest golfer, could play that many holes all at one time.

For almost two full days now,
local TV stations have been warning,
of the big impending snow storm
that should kick into high gear late Tuesday morning.

Run for your life the snow is coming!
At Channel 11, Snowstorm Allison it is called.
They flash the weather map down in the corner
In an effort to keep us all frightened and enthralled.

Some even use the beeper
to make sure that you know they're really serious.
That snow is going to fall quite hard
And winds could be real furious.

I guess you just can't blame them
'Cuz you really must admit
this is about the most excitement
a meteorologist in Green Bay gets.

Bad weather to a meteorologist
is like a fix is to a stoner.
It makes George Graphos' eyes just light right up
and Cameron Moreland has got a boner!

That's right, at NBC 26 Cameron's got a weather woody!!!
He's engorged and he's tumescent!
And over there at Channel 5,
I bet Mahoney, Miller and Justin Whats-his-nuts are all just hard as ce-ment.

Even 5's Dana Tyler and Rebecca Schuld get excited
When the air turns moist and chilly.
I bet they'd even have lump in their loins,
if they each only had a willie.

At FOX 11, Powell, Petoniack, Thut and Higgins,
have got more wood than a forest full of poplars.
And are probably having sword fights
while fondling with their Dopplers.

And over at WBAY,
the excitement for Steve Beylon and Justin Zollitsch has just begun.
And Brad Spakowitz is REALLY turned on
knowing he could see 8 to 12 inches before the night is done.

Yes, blizzard-like conditions
will always excite a weather man.
'cuz it gets their blood a flowing
right to their nether glands.

That's why we can almost forgive them
for their two days of on-air ballyhoo.
You'd also be excited
if when a storm came, so did you!
