    Lent just won:

    ‘I don't come to work to be sexually assaulted': Woman arrested after 'slapping police inspector's bum' at Notting Hill Carnival


    'Inspector Owen Pyle of Southwark police told of his ordeal online following the incident, which happened at Notting Hill Carnival on Monday.

    He said: “While dealing with an incident at Carnival yesterday a woman thought it'd be funny to slap my bum.

    “She soon regretted it when I arrested her."
    Standard.co.uk, 28th August 2018.

    It's like something out of Viz.

    Seeing as the word carnival originates from the Latin 'carn vale' meaning "farewell to flesh", maybe the woman was just saying goodbye to it.

    Yes, giving it a good wave off when the police inspector struck her hand with their ****. Police brutality, clearly.

    Well, it's about as amusing as "The Drunken Bakers", which I've never found at all funny.

    The vast majority of Viz is highly amusing. I would have posted an excerpt from "Nobby's Piles" - particularly apt given the inspector's surname, but the sweary words might upset some people.

    So, we'll just have to be content with a doctor joke:
