Recently I have heard a term popping up that has been ascribed to all sorts of jerky behaviour- that word is ‘bloke.’ It seems any sort of asswipish act is described by a certain segment of the British press (and men of a certain age,) as ‘blokey’ or the domain of ‘blokes.’
“Top Gear is a ‘blokey’ show, so you have to expect Clarkson to make idiotic comments, that’s what ‘blokes’ do.”
“When ‘blokes’ go to a pub, the first thing that they do is compare Blackberrys and tech gadgets.”
“Lesbianism is very enticing to ‘blokes’ who would normally be against male homosexuality.”
“John Terry is just a ‘bloke’.”
What is obvious to me from the context of the above statements and countless others like them, is that the term ‘bloke’ is little more than a euphemism for the term ‘cunt.’ Ergo, I see the constant use of this word ‘bloke’ as lttle more than attempt to sneak the cunt word into our vocabulary via stealth means. Open up a copy of the Daily Mail…I defy you to find a use of the word ‘bloke’ that would not be better suited to the word ‘cunt.’ Give me one example of ‘blokey’ behaviour that could not also be described as ‘cunty.’
You can’t- there aren’t any. Get rid of the ‘b’ word!

Many so-called ‘green’ activists are very quick to make requests. They want the following:
The preservation of the rainforests.
More employment through ‘green jobs.’
Clean water and air.
and a number of other laudable goals.
Now, the point these people seem to be missing, is that this global warming thing could be a huge hoax. If so, we would have made the world a substantially better place for NOTHING!

There is a tendency in the media these day to put labels on people and we live in a PC world. Actually I live near a PC World, in fact, it’s where I got this very laptop I’m typing on. But back to the subject of labels, it astonishes me how quickly a label can be thrown at people. If one denies that the climate is changing, one is labeled a fool, if one broaches the subject of creationism one is labeled a crank, and one merely has to espouse the tenets of National Socialism for people to get labeled a Nazi.
As some of my more astute readers may know, there is a war going on in Darfur. Folks like Angelina Jolie, George Clooney and Mia Farrow are trying to bring attention to the situation. Many people label these celebrities as ‘do-gooders’ and they think that celebrities should stay out of politics. I think it should be people like Brad Pitt running things because those people know how to get things done. Katie Price could do a better job than Harriet Harman and Danny Aiello would be a great Home Secretary.
It is silly to hate celebrities because they think they are better than you. THEY ARE BETTER THAN YOU!

I am quite dismayed at the number of people nowadays who hide under the cloak of transparency. The true measure of a man is if he can build himself up from nothing. These people who coast on their good names and reputations will never evolve as human beings.
The best artists, philosophers and literary figures on the whole tend to change their names. Who doesn’t change their names? Politicians. That is in and of itself proof that pseudonyms are evidence of a higher mind.
Can any one doubt that Samuel Clemens would have remained a riverboat captain had he not changed his name to Mark Twain and kicked things up a few notches? And what about old Siddhārtha Gautama? It wasn’t until he started calling himself Buddha that anyone took notice of him. And would a girl called Stefani Germanotta be capable of composing and recording the sublime delightful vortex of aural pleasure that is Lady Gaga’s Poker Face?
The answer to all these questions? Two words: of course not.
It’s rather simple really. Only real men use pseudonyms. If anyone has a problem with that then they can take it up with Caleb Kuntswothy. (That’s my pseudonym…)

Much is made over the prevalence of tobacco advertising. However in my day there was way more tobacco advertising. CIgarette companies would think nothing of producing ads such as the ones below
However, did it lead to more smoking? Yes it did, but that’s not the real question you should be asking. The real question you should be asking is ‘did it lead to more children taking up smoking?’ Well, yes it did, but that’s not relevant to the matter at issue. The point is, I smoke, and I don’t see anything wrong with it. These doctors with their so-called ‘cancer’ have a few too many answers for me. It seems highly coincidental to me that 95% of people with lung cancer would be heavy smokers. Wouldn’t you say that makes them a little biased towards the cigarette industry? I’m hardly going to take their word for anything. All I’m saying is- consider the source.

John A Coleman, a man that Wikipedia considers an expert, wrote that saints across various cultures and religions have the following family resemblances:
- 1. exemplary model;
- 2. extraordinary teacher;
- 3. wonder worker or source of benevolent power;
- 4. intercessor
- 5. selfless, ascetic behavior; and
- 6. possessor of a special and revalatory relation to the holy.
I can honestly say that Tony Blair falls into all these categories. He is an exemplary model, much like Tyra Banks. He is certainly an extraordinary teacher. I bet you don’t know that he taught George W. Bush how to tie his shoes. The people of Iraq who are free to walk the streets (or hobble along on crutches due to missing limbs, as the case may be) without having to worry about living under a dictatorship can certainly attest to his benevolent power. His skill as an intercessor is obvious as he has managed to mediate peace in the Middle East, and his willingness to go to war in Iraq shows his selfless behaviour. He clearly has a special relationship with the holy…just look at him!

As you may know, I have taken an interest in Middle Eastern politics ever since I discovered that supporting the war in Iraq was an excellent way of pissing people off. Typically, when I take an interest in something, I eschew the typical trendy fashion for research and study preferring instead to use the much more reliable methods of guesswork and fantasy. My painstaking lack of research has provided me with the sort of evidence that many so-called ‘experts’ in the field would be blown away by.
Many people wish to blame former President George W. Bush and the beautiful, brilliant and well hung former Prime Minister Tony Blair for invading Iraq illegally, immorally, unjustly or whatever bullshit that the reality-based community wants to foist on people. However, I have discovered that much more sinister forces were at work. You will literally be shocked when I tell you about this:
Let me start with a question:
What do Iran and Iraq have in common?
This is Iraq
This is Iran
So, I ask you-
What do IRAq and IRAn have in common?
Simple when you think about it. So the next time someone blames the war on Blair and Bush, remind them of the contributions of Adams and McGuinness. But they won’t listen, the Irish never listen.

Hunger, or as I like to call it, ‘malnutrition,’ is a huge problem which, according to Wikipedia, ‘affects a lot of people.’ I think I have come up with a novel, yet surely foolproof, solution to the hunger crisis.
The average human eats 3 to 4 tonnes of food per year. But where is all that food going, you ask, It is being flushed away, like so much waste, in the form of faeces and urine.
What if we were to do nature’s ultimate recycling and recycle our own body waste as food? Does it really sound ridiculous? Urine’s main constituents are water and urea; the latter of which has some well-known commercial uses. Urine also contains small quantities of thousands of compounds, hormones and metabolites including corticosteriods. There is no scientific evidence of a therapeutic use for urine. I know that last bit seems to contradict my point but I copied and pasted that whole thing from Wikipedia so I’m sticking with it. Faeces has been a staple of British humour since the 50’s. C’mon people, you know it makes sense.

Look at this tattooed asshole
and this tattooed cunt
Do we really need tattoos? My father was known as ‘the hardest Yorkshireman in town,’ by anyone lucky enough to be bummed by him and he only had one tattoo, which was very simple. He had ‘Clapton is God’ tattooed on his taint. We thought it was a bit odd as he was never much of a Clapton fan, however it was such fun at parties no one complained.
