Random Musing

“The advice about being the sum of the people you hang with and the books you read extends to other media as well. Careful what radio and TV you watch; it can make you negative fast.”- Brad Montgomery, Corporate Comedian

Get your swears right

Greetings from Mr. Raccoon. Back from a long break and not giving Mr. Wasp the pleasure to post everything on his own.

So here’s a periodic table of swears just to get your chemistry right (click for full size image so you can practice your Xmas meal time phrases) :





Pictorial Interlude – Earth’s most intelligent beings, backlit bat, battle monkeys and how to make a policeman laugh …

All work and no play – bugger that, how about some amusement …

Cats rule (dog lovers – go and throw sticks or something and move on) :

Lace wings – a bat and it’s SAD lamp possibly :

The latest secret weapons (not to be confused with […]


Bugger the Bankers and Politicians – Official Video …

Amusing, with one or two telling lyrics such as :

‘cos we are programmed against insurrection.

_ _ Bugger everyone!

Video Interlude – The badass Honey Badger …

Awesome creature which doesn’t give a shit with amusing commentary : _ _

H/T – Estonians 🙂 Tweet


Having failed to prevent Ash Dieback arriving in the UK, the Government tries the Canute method to stop it spreading …

Wandering around amongst the latest Statutory Instruments, I came across this one in which the Government tries to pull a King Canute and orders the fungus not to spread (emphasis mine) :

The Plant Health (England) (Amendment) Order 2012

This Order amends the Plant Health (England) Order 2005 (S.I. 2005/2530) to […]


Pictorial Interlude – A day in the park, slap me, slap me more, why you shouldn’t rely on your kids in the event of an accident and the nature of bees and wasps ..

Apologies for the lack of anything other than the odd dust kitty and tumbleweed around here lately – work has taken a turn for the rediculous it seems.

In the mean time, amuse yourselves with this little selection ..

I liked this one as soon as I spotted it – very nicely drawn and […]


Video Interlude – A satanic ninja cat and a failed suicide attempt that ends with a sore jaw …

When it comes to dogs, this cat does not take prisoners :

I am not sure what this guy was trying to achieve but I am sure his view of the probable outcomes did not include getting smacked in the mouth :



First cannon like thingy


Been a long time since I posted something over here. And since Mr.Wasp is really fond of cannons and military things I found this rather amusing picture for him :


Hope you all enjoyed this little quickie.





Video Interlude – How not to do a burnout on a motorbike …

While work continues to get in the way of writing here, I did manage to find this rather amusing failure :



Video Interlude – Ninja motorbike rider crashes and watch out for the ice on the pool – it’s thicker than you thought …

This guy just has to be a ninja in his spare time …

Remember all the warnings you have seen about the dangers of thin ice? How about if the ice is a little thicker than you thought – cue broken tailbone I think …



Pictorial Interlude – Beautiful photograpy and skater skillz …

This one caught my eye :

I think it needs a trip to the barbers but beautifully captured.

This one makes me feel cold even though it resembles a volcano – a frozen street lamp :

and finally, skaterz may be assholes but they certainly have skillz :



Pictorial Interlude – The no toilet paper walk, politically correct tools and John the Snail …

Too much work to write anything of substance so have a look at some of the more amusing items I came across in an idle half hour :

A most undignified form of exercise which must surely owe its creation to the toilet paper walk described by the comment :

This advert for […]


Three million pounds – “negligible” when you are spending other people’s money …

A brief insight into the Government’s view of other people’s money – an excerpt from a paper by HM Treasury on a new tax on gaming machines (page 4 HERE if you are bored – opens pdf) :

It also meant that the total impact on Exchequer revenues across the two rates is “negligible” […]


Video Interlude – You will never look at sheep the same way again after this …

Or dogs for that matter … _ _

H/T – Riho Tweet


Pictorial Interlude – iPuppets and iOS 6 maps

How others see Apple fans and some humour from London Underground that made me smile :
