I noticed this the other day

I noticed an article in the Daily Telegraph the other day, commenting on what proportion of their lives the ladies take in preparing to go out. I have not made a scientific study in my case, but I reckon that the article is somewhere near the truth! :-)

Brown boycotts Mugabe at EU-Africa summit

The Tartan Tax Thief refuses to attend a meeting with Robert Mugabe.

I would have thought that Bottler Brown would have been only too happy to meet Butcher Bob to get a few hints on how to run a country into the ground more quickly and create a cadre of dependency voters to keep him in power!

Proof if proof were needed

England's rugby team were only pretending to be crap at the beginning of the World Cup, they proved to be second in the world in the end.

On the other hand, the England football team have just confirmed, by losing to Croatia in the European Cup qualifier that they are bunch of overpaid, under-skilled, prancing prima donnas. A plague upon all their houses, I say!!

Oh what a great idea!

Vince Cable, caretaker leader of the Illiberal Non-democrats, has suggested the way to solve Northern Rock's financial woes is to nationalise it. Vince, my lad, are you a complete idiot? Don't you remember what happened last time something big was nationalised? Here is a clue, we are still suffering from it after nearly 60 years

Walls against millipedes

When I saw the news that a German town was building a wall to keep out millipedes I thought they had decided to keep that obnoxious little twerp David Milliband (aka Miilipede) out. No such luck, they were really trying to keep an invasion of the many legged beasties away! I think I would prefer the millipedes to Milliband and those of his ilk. Less slimy!

Mel Brooks Musical

First let me make it clear that I love all the things that Mel Brooks does. I have many of his DVDs, and I have seen the Producers in the West End theatre, and have both versions of the film.

I am just not so sure about turning Young Frankenstein into a musical now showing on Broadway. I hope it is a huge hit but I am just not so sure, as many of the jokes in the original film do not seem to be so suitable for converting to song.

Oh well, I will just have to wait until I get a chance to see it :-)
