Pictorial Interlude – We had Serial Killer Barbie, now meet Minimum Wage Barbie…

Hot on the heels of serial killer Barbie, meet Minimum Wage Barbie ready to instill a protestant work ethic into our growing youth :

Thinking about it, this may actually be the barbie who later turned to serial killing after becoming bored with dead beat ken.



Pictorial Interlude – Obesity causes heavy pedestrian traffic.

I wonder if the artist designing the sign got the wrong idea when he was thinking about heavy traffic?



Video Interlude – Run over by your own cars – twice in 20 seconds – talk about unlucky.

The guy in the following video (assuming he is still around after that mangling) must be the unluckiest person alive. Not content with being run over by his own truck after what appears to be an effort to stop it rolling away, he then gets run over by the second truck on the drive […]


Pictorial Interlude – Overcrowded cat boxes …

One very very popular box indeed :



Wasp Summer Tour of Europe …

And it is that time of year again where I flap my little wings and bugger off to Estonia again for a nice three week break and some decent weather at last.

It also gives me an opportunity to wind up the cashiers at WH Smiths in Manchester Airport again when their demands to […]


Pictorial Interlude – Baby on board – a new design of sign …

Having long wondered why anyone wants to advertise that they are the proud owners of a puking shit machine by sticking a sign on the back of their car, the following new baby on board sign, whilst damned amusing, is a sure fire way to get yourself touched up by the humourless plod (read […]


Pictorial Interlude – China’s answer to the Red Arrows – soldiers on motorbikes ..

What appears to be the Chinese Army (judging by the smog in the air and their general demeanour) making, almost flower arrangement style, human pyramids on motorbikes :

The second motorcycle in the picture has the unfortunately arranged upside down man on top of the pile making it appear that the soldier standing […]


Barroso “is a deluded communist idiot” … Farage on the EU

Nigel Farage speaking his mind in his usual frank manner which, as always, leads to a rather amusing interview : _ _

Whilst he is having a dig at Barroso and van Rumpey Pumpey, he also makes a very good point in the interview on the likeness of the EU to the old USSR […]


Pictorial Interlude – Cactus Art …

I found this one rather amusing in it’s simplicity :

Good to have a chuckle after a shitty day …



UK drops to second place in the league table of governments spying on their citizens.

A BBC News article today on the Google Transparency report reminded me of a piece I wrote back in 2010 on the same subject where the UK came out on top for countries spying on their citizens when population size was taken into account.

Today’s report shows however that the UK has slipped to […]


Pictorial Interlude – How they teach democracy in school …

Amusing sideline from one of  The Waspsnest’s Estonian co-conspirators – I imagine this is an addition to the curriculum prompted by the EU :




Video Interlude – I guess that some countries have more relaxed laws regarding goods vehicles…

Whilst VOSA drones would probably soil their underwear in anticipation of the reams of paperwork the following would generate, it would seem that in some places, attitudes are much more relaxed to the loading of vehicles :

Take note of the guy hanging out of the lorry door in a vain attempt to […]


WTF are “Industrial beauty products”?

The art of applying industrial cosmetics in Sheffield.

An amusing snippet in the local section of BBC News (emphasis mine) :

A parcel that caused an emergency alert at a Sheffield mail sorting office contained beauty products, police have confirmed.

Emergency crews were called to the Royal Mail office in Barnsley Road […]


Pictorial Interlude – Books that make you wonder what the publisher was thinking part III

Another selection of publications that have surely raised eyebrows amongst readers and probably caused the odd librarian to feel the need to have a sit down whilst they recover their composure :



Amusing quotes taken out of context – depraved sexual acts of hooligan males ..

I would give you several hundred guesses as to the topic of the news article where the following quote comes from and am pretty sure you would never guess :

He was shocked by what he described as the “depraved” sexual acts of “hooligan” males who were mating with dead females. So distressed was […]
