Sadly, I'm going to be deprived of an Internet connection for the next few days which means that I may miss the next exciting, well maybe exciting is the wrong word, sequel to the little, um, situation mentioned in my previous post :(
And, as usual, I will punctuate a posting hiatus by slapping up some links to assorted old tat sitting in my bookmarks folder…
Exhibit A - Max, 19, hits the road.
A fine example of the dead tree press harnessing the power of new media and the Internet to branch out into e-nepotism - to rapturous acclaim from a series of delighted and inventively abusive commentators (comments are now closed). Skip the article, read the abuse
(I must admit to some slight prejudice here as I'm a lot older than 19 and live on a reclaimed marsh in South London)
Exhibit B – Catholic Costumes for Children
"Aside from the obvious Catholic reasons, we are absolutely horrified at the costumes that are being offered this season. Want to dress your little girl like a street walker or jail bait? Perhaps you'd like to encourage pedophilia. This company has the solution."
As soon as they start doing a pre-teen Alexander VI costume my first order definitely goes in
And in fairness to Catholic Costumes for Children they do link to some pretty fucked up stuff available elsewhere – even Woolworths are getting in on the paedo-frenzy
See also: ‘Papist or Rapist’ - A photo quiz that's a lot harder than it should be which comes with the following disclaimer - 'This is all meant as a bit of fun and I did go to the trouble of researching these images, but I would hate to piss anyone off, so if you appear here as a sex offender, or worse still, if you appear as a member of the Roman Catholic church, then let me know and I will rectify the situation immediately. Likewise, if you look a bit dodgy and think that you should have been included for one of the categories and can substantiate your claim to either being a working member of the appropriate faith or a convicted sex offender then I will be happy to consider your application.'
Exhibit C – Flickr Photo streams which have caught my eye
This photo and it’s surrounding stream are interesting...
As is this stream...
But not this one...
Exhibit D – Most apathetic demonstrator ever?
Anti BNP demo today…
Exhibit E - Quizmania (No Legs Caller)
Er, that’s enough Exhibits for now
