Humour

Funny stuff


At last…

… Somebody talking a bit of sense in the mainstream press to counter the alarmist misinformation on the whole Calais / migrant issue. Now the UK elections are over, highly flawed, madcap schemes like this one  seem to be the order of the day as the Tory government tries to make like it’s doing something about the so called “immigration problem”. Normally I like to keep it light but I’ve […]


Lions

Cecil the lion

… The BBC reported that the Zimbabwean government is seeking to extradite Walter Palmer, the (dentist) killer of Cecil the lion. Apparently the government has some help… Meanwhile in London, “Je Suis Cecile” notices began appearing on the lion statues in Trafalgar Square…


Spanish Apples Anyone? 1

So, came across this story on the BBC today, rather late to the game as usual. However, better late than never. The clips had me in stitches. The original interview story  of Las Paelleras is funny enough and yet… more creative mischief making individuals with a talent for spoofing came up with this hilarious take on the original. Enjoy…     Thanks! I’m still chuckling. And it’s set me up […]


Ruby Waz

Ruby Ruby Ruby is Her Name

Spent a very sane and sensible evening watching the very funny and entertaining Ruby Wax performing her one woman show Sane New World. Based on her book of the same name, the show suggests some explanations and practical solutions for surviving and thriving in this bonkers world of “must do more, more, more…”. As well as an open discussion of her own mental health challenges and the journey she’s taken […]


New Brazil flag

Brazil 1… Germany 7…WTF???!!!

Well I didn’t watch the match but tuned into the tail end of the game when I got home, just in time to do a double take on the 0-7 score line, and see Brazil get a futile goal back… Still my good old work colleague came to the rescue and had me cracking up with this one…     And of course it wasn’t long before someone created this […]


Papa’s got a brand new (i)Pad

For those ole fashioned folk that like a good ole fashioned computers that you can do good ole fashioned computing stuff on, maybe this is the best thing you can do with an iPad. Thanks to a cool work colleague for bringing this to my attention…  


Crocodile tears and creativity… 1

… First the crocodile tears. We’ve all by now probably heard news of the terrible abduction of the school girls from Chibok village in Nigeria. If not check out the numerous stories on the net including on the Al Jazeera and / or The Guardian websites. Well I was hanging out with some friends over the weekend, (a Nigerian or two amongst them), and was pointed in the direction of […]


Easter musings

Interesting couple of weeks since last post. Great to have a week off over Easter to catch up with family and friends and generally be a slovenly slothy slug. Got round to bit of culture n stuff in the lead up to the resurrection. First up an interesting mix of Jazz and sitar with Deirdre Cartwright / Baluji Shrivastav ensemble. Bloody fantastic performance from all and a really good night. Also went […]


Candidates for Shit London? 1

Not that I particularly wish to promote Amazon the (in)famous online bookstore… there’s a book called Shit London which will make a good crimbo present for someone somewhere (hint, hint…). As I was wandering round and about while visiting a friend today, I came across this sign prompting disabled people to ring a non existent bell to get help getting into the offending public building. Now that’s pretty shit. Get […]
