What If … The EU decided to press ahead with English language simplification?

A rather amusing little skit that I came across while searching for something entirely unrelated – don’t you just love the internet?

Having chosen English as the preferred language in the EEC (now officially the European Union, or EU), the European Parliament has commissioned a feasibility study in ways of improving efficiency in communications […]


Translation joker – pure genius …

One of the funniest things I have read in some time …



Cage fighter tells Parliament – “ban packed lunches in schools”.

Is it any wonder that the UK is disappearing up its own arse when we have this kind of crap passed off as news by our state broadcaster (and don’t you just hate their one statement to a line dumbshit ™ style these days) :

Reality TV star and former cage fighter Alex […]


The Maastricht Treaty as a suicide pact …

An interesting interview with Steve Keen on Europe with a few choice quotes and his view of where it’s heading and a potential way out for Ireland :

Ultimately the Euro has to fail and the longer we continue the farce of believing we can make it function the larger the ultimate crash will […]


Quote of the day – Voltaire on killing …

This one amused me somewhat :

It is forbidden to kill; therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets.

Voltaire French author, humanist, rationalist, & satirist (1694 – 1778)



Pictorial Interlude – Near miss number 3, we need bigger chairs, unconvincing swans and something I always wanted to do …

Whilst work continues to interfere with more important things (such as posting here), here are a few amusing things I came across recently …

Another amazing near miss which must have resulted in a change of underwear :

Chairs seem to be getting smaller every year :

He must think swans are […]


Soon we will all be terrorists …

Via The BBC, how long before all police are anti-terror officers and all thoughts are terror related :

Five men have been arrested on suspicion of publishing material to incite racial hatred.

Computer equipment and mobile phones are thought to have been seized by police during early morning raids in Tyneside, Birkenhead, Barnsley, […]


I knew something fishy was going on with the truancy fines press release timing …

After writing yesterday about my surprise at finding a Statutory Instrument which seemed to predict the future, I have had a look at the timing and it seems I wasn’t going mad after all.

This example of our Parliament reduced to a rubber stamping factory for “politburo” style executive legislation may be a minor […]


Video Interlude – Putting holes in cars with a wooden slingshot…

Beautifully made and highly effective car destroyer – who wouldn’t want one of these? _ _

I particularly like the racket it makes when it goes off!



Increased truancy fines – is this a new speed record for government?

The radio news this morning had a few articles on truancy with the “behaviour czar” (what a lovely Orwellian name for an interfering twat) wanting to increase the fines payable by parents of persistent truants. This evening, while having a trawl through the statutory instruments, I was a little surprised to find that the […]


The government bansturbators reach the works canteen.

Banned – it’s for your own good you know!

On returning to work this week after my Estonian adventures, the hot topic in the office is food rather than the more usual who is or isn’t shagging who.

While I was away, the works canteen implemented their part of the governments […]


Pictorial interlude – Got laid, lying sheep and smart world.

Hello yet again, Mr. Raccoon here with a stabilized health status since Mr. Wasp fled Estonia. But that doesn’t matter I still have some funnies to deliver at last.





And I totally agree with the last one.

Anyway it’s been fun yet again and I will be going on a […]


Pictorial Interlude – sex injuries and broken furniture …

Back to the UK once again, so whilst I get my things in order for the drag that is work tomorrow how about sex injuries and broken furniture :

H/T – Mr Raccoon.
