Quote: ‘I’m sorry, it’s not what it looks like’ – What Ryan Dodd, 30, who was convicted of break and enter and bestiality last week, told police in 2019. The actual words from the Ottawa Citizen were, ‘When police found the intruder at the Ottawa stables, he was in a stall with his pants down and his tallywhacker up, standing next to a miniature pony that had been tied up and lubed up with massage oil.’ 

Except that it did not say tallywhacker, it said the p-word, which, although we're not prudes, would probably put this newsletter immediately into your spam folder. [Ottawa Citizen]
