TGIS: Thank God It's Schadenfreude! (281)

This week's joy in the misfortune of others comes courtesy of Telegraph.co.uk (from Monday, August 2; link good at time of posting):
Raoul Moat's former cell-mate Nathan Flynn has tattooed a tribute to his dead friend on his arm with the name spelled incorrectly.

Instead of the correct version, Mr Flynn had "Raul Moat" put on his arm. When it was pointed out to him, he had a small "O" inserted.

However, the Sun newspaper interviewed him and pointed out that he had also got Moat's birthdate wrong. So Mr Flynn is to take another trip to the tattoo parlour.
