    Default Carry on coppers

    A guy covered in burns staggers into Lewisham police station and tells the receptionist "I stabbed those two French students five hundred times, and burned myself trying to set them alight!"

    The receptionist replies "Please wait your turn outside! Now madam, where were we? About your poodle, (licks pencil) last seen in the park on Tuesday you say ...."

    Meanwhile the guy outside is haranguing others in the queue "I’ve just murdered two people, I’ve got third degree f***ing burns and they are not doing anything about it!”

    Apparently that's moreorless what happened, and he was only arrested several minutes later, presumably when he got to the front of the queue.
