It really is an awful price to pay for a bad joke. I had, earlier, asked what the hell was wrong with Scottish people. After all, it seemed a bit ridiculous to call the police simply because a man was having a go with his bicycle in a room at a hostel. I mean, it’s not like he was trying to get some from a mannequin at the local YMCA.
Anyway, The Sun reports that, according to Robert Stewart’s solicitor, “He thought he was having fun with the cleaners. He doesn’t think it’s funny any more.”
And, yes, I can see how wanking for shock value makes for a bad joke, but I still can’t believe this is something worth placing a guy on a Sex Offender Registry.
The question is still valid, though.
Poor, stupid bastard.
