The sad story of human billboard David Jonathan Winkelman

Winkelman became a human billboard for the radio station KORB in late-2000 after a disc jockey offered listeners a six-figure payout if they tattooed the FM station’s call letters and logo on their forehead. Winkelman and his stepson, Richard Goddard, went to a local tattoo parlor and each emerged with forehead ink promoting “93 Rock,” the “Quad City Rocker.”

But when the two guys tried to claim the money, the radio station said it was just a joke. They sued, but the suit was dismissed.

Winkelman just got arrested for something or other, so we’re all treated to the mugshot below. Poor guy…

Silvio Berlusconi’s Hitler joke is weak

Dear Associated Press: don’t report that Silvio Berlusconi told a tasteless joke about Hitler and then not even tell us the joke! It’s important to judge someone’s shocking joke based on whether the person was being hilarious as well as insensitive and hateful.

Fortunately, The Indian Express has the joke, and it turns out it is not funny at all. Which makes Berlusconi even more of a jerk.

Addressing a convention of the youth wing of his People of Freedom Party, the billionaire businessman said: “A little after Hitler died his supporters discovered he was in fact still alive.

”They went to look for him to convince him to come back and he replied: ‘Yes I will return but on one condition…

this time I will be evil, right?’“
