Get Off Your Bum

Kevin Pyle, 35, of Fenham, Newcastle, England, has “won” the title of “Great North Bum” — the laziest man in his region — because he walks his dog by driving down the street with his arm out the window, with the dog trotting alongside. “It saves me from getting wet when it’s raining,” Pyle said. “He really enjoys it and it saves my legs.” Pyle was nominated for the award by his son — who Pyle makes drive so he can just sit during the walks. The newspaper concludes that “Competition bosses say he won by a landslide.” (RC/London Telegraph) ...Mainly because they were too lazy to consider any other nominations.
