Another ‘genius’ writes the same article that 1000 food journalists have written before him

Posted on

You’d think in these days of a million journalist students they’d teach them to avoid the old cliches. Consider the latest idiot who thinks it’s news that food companies try to tweak their products to make them irresistible: It seems that manufactured food is made by real life Willy Wonkas, who tinker with precise amounts […]

Goodbye Mr Flicks

Posted on

Why would you go to the cinema these days? In my case I’m becoming less interested in films as I get older anyway. Art films become more and more boring as the intelligentsia becomes increasingly conformist. Most blockbuster films have little interest for me, and I don’t usually like superhero films. In fact, the main […]

Fancy that

If this guy clings on we’ll know there are different rules for the Democrats. When I was at University, people – including people who become prominent and respected members of the community – would dress up as all sorts of things. It was all tongue-in-cheek. If someone put on blackface the black guys would think […]

Quote of the Day

Jim again, from the comments: I’m convinced that the fall of the Eastern Bloc is responsible for a lot of this. I think a lot of the people who like controlling other people, who don’t really care what the ideology is they have to espouse, just that espousing it puts them in charge of other […]

“The Week in Patriarchy”

Posted on

Did you know that the Guardian has a section called ‘The Week in Patriarchy‘. Even by Guardian standards this is extremely comical. One can only presume that they don’t read satirical sites like The Onion or the Daily Mash. Here are some of the – shall we say ‘predictable’? – headlines: Women swear sometimes – let’s get […]

Blithering Bunny is back!

Posted on

Yes, Blithering Bunny is back, and he’s… me. Most of you won’t know what I’m talking about, but there may be a few old-timers who remember my original blog from the early-mid 2000s. Those were the days when the blogosphere was ruled by old whatshisname, and whatchamacallit, and doohickey something-or-other. (Actually, in those days the […]

James Delingpole on TV

Posted on

I’ve now watched James Delingpole’s appearance on This Week (24-1-19), which he and a lot of his critics are saying was a car crash for him, mainly because he wasn’t very sure about the tariff situation. I didn’t think it was a car crash. It certainly wasn’t ideal, and it would have been great if […]

Brexit

Quote of the Day

Posted on

Jim on fire in the comments again (but also see the comments afterwards from Andrew and Umbungo): It occurs to me that in the event of another referendum (which of course is possible) the Remain camp have very little ammunition left. They can predict economic collapse (again) but their opponents can just point to the […]

How come a white old guy is just an old guy, or a gammon, or someone who needs to die soon, but an old Native American guy is always called by the media an ‘elder’, like he must have spiritual wisdom and be able to see how the Earth hurts because the Democrats aren’t in […]
