Chapman remains inside

Mark Chapman, the man who shot John Lennon has been told he won't be paroled.

Apparently, it's the "bizarre" nature of his crime which counts against him - presumably, the Attica Jail parole panel had their hand swayed by the old "...and Yoko was stood next to him, unharmed" joke.

"The panel remains concerned about the bizarre nature of this premeditated and violent crime.

"While the panel notes your satisfactory institutional adjustment, due to the extremely violent nature of the offence your release would not be in the best interest of the community."

We think this means he's not actually shot any rock stars while in prison, but they can't be sure he won't go looking for Bono if he's set free.

That last line is just begging for a punchline, as you well know.

I'm not going to supply it though, as it's just too obvious.

Perhaps someone else will succumb though...?
