Friday Fun - News in Brief

Now, once again, it's time for Friday Fun's News in Brief. So without further ado:

Cocky rap star Kanye West is calling for a revised edition of The Bible, because he thinks he should be a character in it.

"I changed the sound of music more than one time... For all those reasons, I'd be a part of the Bible. I'm definitely in the history books already."

That's not a bad idea. How about this passage, "And the lord said...Kanye West is a twat. And he is."

Political representatives of the loyalist Ulster Defence Association this week ruled out any imminent moves on disarmament. This followed talks in Belfast between President Mary McAleese’s husband and senior members of the paramilitary organisation.

Responding to the announcement, Ian Paisley blamed Mary McAleese for the impasse.

And in other news, US President George W. Bush called for an end to the violence triggered by drawings of the Prophet Mohammed.

"We reject violence as a way to express discontent with what may be printed in a free press," Bush said.

Well said Mr Bush. You're absolutely right. I mean, you'd never hear US Republicans complain about a cartoon would you? They wouldn't be that stupid. I mean, take something like Spongebob Squarepants, you'd never hear US Republicans make an issue out of that.

And now to wrap up with some of the key images of the past week...

With global versions of The Office in the pipeline, talk turns to an Irish version and just who would be qualified enough to portray an Irish David Brent...

As Britney Spears continues to be villified for taking off through heavy Malibu California traffic with her baby son on her lap, she receives support from an unlikely source...

And finally, with the news that the English want a Brit to be the next England manager, an unlikely candidate throws his hat in the ring...

So there you have it folks. The news in brief.
