Noel attacked by a "fan" are you sure?

Oasis cancel gig as Noel Gallagher fails to recover from fan attack

Oasis have canceled a performance in Canada because guitarist Noel Gallagher needed more time to recover from injuries he sustained when a "fan" attacked him on stage.

This amazing statement confused some in the Smugboard offices for the following reason.

Definition of the word "Fan": An enthusiastic devotee, follower, or admirer of a sport, pastime, celebrity, etc.: a music fan; a great fan of Charlie Chaplin.

Well all we can say is whatever kind of fan he is supposed to be, he clearly is not an Oasis "Fan" is he!

We wonder when journalists will stop using silly expressions such as these?

Joy Rider: Car Thief
Happy Slapping: Documented Assault
Asylum Seeker: Ponce
Politician: Hypocrite
Muslim: Terrorist
Human Rights Act: Wasters Charter
Multiculturalism: Kissing wogs arses
