A bit of Pasta Love

November 23, 2008 at 1:20 pm

From our Corresponent in Nobby’s Beach, Newcastle, Queensland comes this news – that a man was discovered having sex with a jar of pasta sauce. “Weatherley, of Promontory Way, North Arm Cove, attracted attention parked in a no-stopping zone before noon on October 26. Police believed Weatherley was doing something […]

Breathalyzers Are Racist

November 21, 2008 at 9:44 am

If you haven’t already, brace yourself for the way of our new world. A lawyer representing a man charged with drunken driving is claiming that Connecticut’s breathalyzers discriminate against blacks. He claims that research shows “the lung capacity of a black man is 3 percent smaller than a white man […]

When Great Ships Fade

November 17, 2008 at 1:33 pm

If you will indulge me, two ship related posts in succession. Yesterday the QE2 sailed away from Gibraltar for the final time. Her ultimate destination, as we all know, is Dubai to become a floating hotel. Many places such as the smaller Mediterranean islands and resorts – and other similar […]

Academics Seek Cheap Publicity (Pt94)

November 17, 2008 at 1:05 pm

Talk about historical revisionism. Last month the French were claiming that we didn’t play fair at Agincourt and now a group of lecturers at third-rate ex-Poly Portsmouth Uni are claiming that the pride of Henry VIII’s fleet, Mary Rose, was actually sunk by a cannonball fired from a much smaller […]

Where can I buy one?

November 13, 2008 at 6:20 am

After a few serious posts I’d like to lighten the mood of the site. My friend PB has emailed me this man-held female controller. Strangely I doubt that it works but it’s worth a look. Not for sale locally as far as I can track down. Click on the image […]

You’re (not) Nicked, Sunshine

Although this is doing the rounds, one has to enjoy the idea of buying this from here.* *Once again the Eye is doing this for fun and not for any profit.

Lest We Forget (Pt.2) and unending

November 13, 2008 at 12:31 am

I’m specifically avoiding a “It’s This Long” comment based on the photograph because Lord Ashcroft (who is the world’s biggest collector of VC’s. That’s slightly due to our current government’s contempt for our armed forces which force grieving spouses to have to sell them on) has published a book called […]

Lest We Forget

November 10, 2008 at 3:23 am

The time-zone my job has just taken me to and also the out-of hours work I’m doing now means that I’m horribly late blogging about something I care about enormously. James Cleverly posted the picture which I snaffled and there are, I’m delighted to see, tens of thousands of other […]

The Dawn Of A Brave New Socialism (Pt.3)

November 8, 2008 at 9:17 pm

Okay, okay, so I promised to leave the US elections alone. This one, however, was too much fun to leave alone. Most newspapers and magazines prepare a selection of front pages and L’Express is no exception however the balance is quite fun. At the top is the published version with […]
