Go to the bottom of the Facebook page. Click on the language settings (yours will probably be defaulted to “English (UK)”…) and try setting it to “English (Pirate)” instead.Enjoy. Yarrrr.

I was sat in the beer garden of a bar in Southwark on Friday evening, waiting for some friends – but couldn’t help but be drawn into the hilariously “serious’ conversation of two businessmen bellowing at each other in loud and nonsensical business cliches, while I waited.I really wish I could have written it all down as it was pure comedy gold (and I love it when people really feel they have to be heard by everybody else in a bar or restaurant, as it usually means they’re idiots) – lots of stuff about “managing upwards”, working in a “matrix” (I thought that was fiction I must admit) and “kicking shit in the UK division”. But the bit that really got me (and I hope their business isn’t involved in any kind of Physics discipline) was when one of them banged out in a gloriously pompous voice a phrase to describe his position in the company; “Yeah, well that’s the thing – the gravitational field is much stronger the closer you are to the magnet…” Tosser.

I may be getting a bit more reactionary in some of my views – like for instance I reckon using a mobile in a car should result in the filth being allowed to crush your motor into a cube *on the spot* – but it tends to be that these views come from decent observations. And one of those is that people CANNOT drive while using a mobile. Nor can they cycle while using one. And let’s be honest most people can barely walk while using one (and alarmingly I’m talking about people using it as a frikkin’ phone not as a texting device here…)Hence why I love this cartoon. Thanks to Chris at Gonzovision for sending it on.

I can’t help it; I’m a sucker for good causes – I’ve promoted ARK (Animal Rescue Kerala) on here before, and now it’s time for another.Whilst the current good cause in my head is raising money to have Andy Coulson’s head on a spike at the Tower of London, there is a genuinely useful one that I’d like to point you at; Wiccaweys Rescued Border Collies & Working Dogs Centre – a rescue centre that really needs some funding help right now.If you can spare a bit or can set up a monthly donation, you’d be doing something extremely useful. Hopefully we can return to Andy Coulson’s head on a spike some other time…. ;-)

Managed to get away from the desk early this afternoon for a bit of a chill outside. (Though nothing “chilling” about it at all technically…)Hot, bright and peaceful by the lake.The tubes will be hell on toast though…
