G20 Summit: All the action caught on camera
Our man braves London's riot-ravaged streets
It's been quite a week in good old London Town, what with international big cheeses rolling in to solve the world's economic woes at a stroke and restore our beloved planet to its happy pre-crisis condition of nothing more worrying than some bothersome developing world hunger and the occasional light war to entertain the masses.
Our man on the street was, as ever, on hand to capture the highlights. Suitably disguised in Class War t-shirt and dreadlocks, and accompanied by the obligatory dog on a string, he first mixed with unwashed masses roaming the streets in packs looking for a bit of argy-bargy with the Old Bill, which is exactly what they got:
Here we see malodorous anticapitalists righteously dispersed by riot coppers backed by the feared "Jacqimus Prime" killbot - a terrifying cybernetic organism capable of stripping away your civil liberties with a single glance from a distance of two miles.
Yes, yes, we hear you say; we've seen all of this before. Fair enough, but look closer at the highlighted window. Here's the image massively enhanced by El Reg's bank of digital manipulation supercomputers:
Indeed, while Jacq's away, the mouse will play - in this case by watching some top-quality pornography at the taxpayers' expense. For the record, that is a ten-gallon hat on Richard Timney's lap, and yes, he is very, very pleased.
NSFW, Mr Haines
Might want to include that on the RSS feed.

It would have been wonderful if someone had gone to the G20 protests dressed in a human-sized Playmobil suit. That person could have tried to mentalise the police into believing that he was actually a life-sized tiny Playmobil figure, and that the police themselves were miniature people, and that everybody at the protest was a toy of some kind, the playthings of mysterious slobbering giants from the skies.
In The Register's Playmobil world do the Playmobil people play with tiny little models of human beings?
PMT? that can only mean Play Mobil Time
Er, I am deeply deeply ashamed to admit trying, but has anyone found pictures of the cosmeticly enhanced Playmobil Eve?
