‘Glass Dick’ – Sky Reporter Martin Brunt Shafted By Autocorrect While Live-Tweeting John Terry Race Trial

By Chris Wright

In all honesty, we could care less about the squabbling at the Magistrates’ Court this morning, being as though the upshot of it all is that – if John Terry is found guilty – he’ll be left facing little more than a £2,500 fine (which he’ll be able to work off in two hours and 38 minutes) and his reputation further besmirched – the legal equivalent of a ‘miss’ in Battleships.

That said, our interest was piqued when Sky crime correspondent Martin Brunt posted this little gem during his live twitter churn of the Terry-Ferdinand race trial…

Glass dick? The things they allow in court these days!

Yeah, riiiiiiiight.

And that, people, is our incredibly trite take on a potentially very serious court case.

    Don’t really care about Brunt’s typo, but the picture of the woman with what appears to really be a glass dick surely cries out for an explanation?

  2. Alan Duffy says:

    I think that photo is from Chris’ private collection

  3. hug me says:

    I’d also like to know more about the picture, I’m even more curious now that I’ve seen the leaderboard behind her saying ‘something drugs challenge’.

  4. Al says:

    is it just a standard glass trophy with a golf ball on top that makes it look like a bell end? The curve in the glass is a particularly nice touch and leads me to believe it is based on my own apendage

  5. Moxey says:

    “Could care less”? So you’re saying you actually care? It’s “couldn’t care less”! If you could care less then you are saying you care in some way, if you couldn’t care less then you really don’t give a shit.

  6. Gabriel says:

    @usrick- if you look closely, you’ll find that it is not actually a glass dick, but rather an curved trophy with a glass golf ball on top.

  7. squiggle says:

    That’s Annika Sörenstam, you barbarians.

  8. usrick says:

    Yes, I’m a barbarian. And a Philistine. But at least I am NOT a golfer.

  9. TAYPOT says:

    The pic of the golfer is a definite photoshop cos that in the background should actually say “long dongs challenge”

  10. theking says:

    “could care less” doesn’t even make sense

    actually, this is a real photo. the bird is Yank Cristie Kerr. she’s “holding” that year’s trophy for winning the 2002 Longs Drugs Challenge, an annual LPGA (that’s the ladies golf tour in the USA) event. in her defense, she certainly looks a pro.
