Things aren’t always what they appear to be . . .
Two drunken yobs in Swansea recently got more than they bargained for when they picked on two men dressed in drag who were on their way to a stag party. One of the yobs punched one of the party-goers in the face and was then floored, along with his companion, by the other man, who was clad in a short dress, suspenders and stockings. The two party-goers then picked up their handbags and left the scene. The drunks had picked on two cage fighters!
The dazed yobs tried to walk away but a combination of drunkenness and concussion had them staggering around narrowly avoiding collision with street furniture. Eventually they were questioned and arrested by police, charged with using abusive words and behaviour. Previously in the evening they had got into a fight with a man dressed as Spiderman.
Their defending counsel said the two had been drinking cocktails and one of them had drunk at least ten pints of cider. Addressing the magistrates he said, ' . . . you know it cannot have been a good night when you get into a fight with Spiderman and two cross-dressing men.'
