After Littlejohn's lazy piece of journalism over a Times birth announcement made him look like a prize gherkin, another one comes along to take its place.
Richard - from his gated manor in Florida has his finger on the pulse again - by picking up on the story (covered here in The Telegraph) of Devon and Cornwall Police recruiting spaniels as rescue dogs. Littlejohn mocks with the payoff:
- The increasingly absurd Devon and Cornwall force has started replacing their German shepherds with springer spaniels, which are said to be 'less frightening'.
The force dog inspector added: "Our existing general purpose dogs are fantastic at what they do but vulnerable people are often scared when confronted by a German shepherd dog.
"These lost person search dogs have no other skills and are pure specialists in finding people who are lost."
As with some of Littlejohn's neighbours, they truly reside in a Mickey Mouse world.
UPDATE: The boy Johnny @ No Sleep Til Brooklands was there first with this one. So, just pretend you read it here before you went over there for fuller details.
