This story made me laugh out loud! OK, the story is tragic, so it was rather the headline and the photo -

Is Zinadine Zidane a bit of a penis then? O no, he's Zizou, or zouzi, or zouzou, or something.

Having dined at Zizi myself I can understand his frustration, but I think there are more sensible ways to vent one's dissatisfaction with the service.

Hmmmm. That's just... odd. I hope this man gets psychological help, although it's too late for Mr. Happy.
