A blast from the not-so-musical past

February 7, 2017

I’m not sure how it happened, but while minding my own business and surfing the net the other day I stumbled across this old gem from 2012: Lisa Gail Allred’s 3 Second Rule. Holy crap, I’d forgotten just how awful it was. Anyway, now that it’s stuck in my brain AGAIN (dammit), I think it’s only fair that I should inflict it on someone else. You’re welcome!

Act now … or tomorrow … or next week

Are you a procrastinator? I am to a minor degree, but I think that’s just human nature: we’re not always keen to do things that are hard work or a bit boring. Apparently though, it’s something we should cure by taking a course. An online course, in fact. Get The Darned Thing Done – How To Beat Procrastination In 14 Days was given a somewhat glowing review by a reporter for the Mail Online last...

Zuckerberg would be an improvement

Zuckerberg would be an improvement

It seems there’s been some speculation that Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg is planning to have a crack at running for president, but the wealthy tech guru has poured cold water on the rumours. The rumours came about after he hired an ex-Whitehouse photographer to be his personal photographer, and also publicly renounced his atheism. Because it seems being an orange buffoon is acceptable when it comes to being leader of the free world, but...

For that ‘hard to shop for’ person?

For that ‘hard to shop for’ person?

So Christmas is getting ever closer, and we all have that one person on our list who is nearly impossible to shop for. Well have I got news for you! From the “things you didn’t know you needed but can find on the internet” comes a product called My New Pink Button, which has made a few sales on Amazon. I’m glad you asked (although you might wish you’d kept that question to yourself once I’ve explained).  My New Pink Button is a “temporary dye to restore the youthful pink color back to your labia”. Yes folks, it’s lipstick for your girly bits. It’s currently out of stock so sorry, if you were keen to try a new shade for summer you might have to wait a while. I think I might need a cup of tea and a lie down.

How about we worry about the REAL issue

August 1, 2016

Over the past week or so there has been a good bit of whinging over the planned name of a new organisation that aims to help vulnerable children in this country. The old Child Youth and Family is being shut down so it can be replaced with a new agency next year: the Ministry for Vulnerable Children. The Children’s Commissioner Andrew Becroft is having a moan: the name is, apparently, “cripplingly disappointing”. And Labour’s Children’s...

Bullshit bullfight traditions

There’s been plenty of backlash around the world over plans to slaughter the mother of a bull that fatally gored a Spanish matador, but I doubt that will stop the blood-thirsty cretins from going ahead with their plan. Yes, you read that right: some knob decides he want to be a big, brave hero and be a matador, the bull gets the better of him, so those involved in the “sport” will kill of...
