Hell hath no fury... British shock jock Tim Shaw came back home to find his belongings on the street and his car gone...maybe he should have been a tiny little bit more considerate with the missus...

Fair enough. But no alimony for her.

Wow, the English have assholes too. Lucky guy getting the Lotus for 50p, that's about a buck, right?

He's lucky he didn't marry a Venezuelan woman, she'd just chop his cock off and throw it out the window.

By the way, spellcheck wanted to change 50p to Apache. I just thought that was funny and wanted to share without making it an FPP.

The whole thing is shady and most probably a stupid publicity stunt. I also clicked around her ebay profile and found some... suspicious... things. (8 copies of the same book, pickup only, 0.01 pounds each to the same person who gave lots of nice feedback, an item called SHAW SHAW with no other info sold for 0.01 to "kingdj69" etc)

Yeah, I'd write this off to publicity stunt.

I think I've read the book. It has a gangster, a mysterious lady-friend of said gangster and the annoying shock-jock punches an annoying talk-show host in the face. Or something.

I think I'm going to have to change my stance and go with publicity stunt as well.

i_cola, funny I use arsehole as a politer version of asshole when I'm in mixed company.

too bad. I was giving the wife Kudos...

Yeah ... kinda does smell like a publicity stunt. She states in her eBay ad: "I am the registered owner and I have the log book." Why would Shaw put the car in her name? Unless, maybe, it was a gift from her to him? Who knows.

It's also an old bit of urban folklore, too. And this one was easier to fake than filling the car with concrete.

lazy-ville, is that book Ian Banks' Dead Air?

ericb, for tax purposes.
