Remember the 16-year-old from yesterday’s blog who got busted masturbating over Internet porn by his mother? That’s nothing. This kid is only 15 and has just been busted for running his very own Internet child pornography ring. He is so grounded.

I saw it, but I didn’t believe it and didn’t link it. A good thing, too, as snopes has come through with the hard facts about that ‘death by stripper’ story.

I did fall for the orbiting laser cannons, though. Shame on me.

Germany refuses to recognize Scientology as a church, saying it masquerades as a religion to make money. Well, that’s just plain unfair!

There’s no need to panic, though kids…Tom Cruise is on the case.

Welcome to Pop-Up Hell
Time
10:43


I just happened across this very scary example of a pop-up alert box. Normally these little buggers say something like; “Would you like to earn $5000 a month from home?” or something equally sad/disturbing, but this one, quite entertainingly I thought, offered me the unique opportunity of blind compliance.

There’s no ‘Cancel’ option, so there goes the ‘nay’ vote. Even the ‘Close’ button is disabled, so I can’t abstain either – all that’s left is ‘OK’ – but ‘OK’ to what exactly?

Setting my home page to www.xxxteenfarmgirlsoncrack.com?

Wiping my C: drive?

Selling my soul to Satan, the Prince of Darkness?

I have to do something soon. I mean, I can’t just sit here and stare at it all day – but my curiosity is stopping me from simply Ctrl+Alt+Deleting its sorry arse off my screen and forgetting about it.

I’ll let you know what develops…

They just unveiled the new statue of Thatcher but can’t decide where to put it.

Some want it displayed in the House of Commons but, as the article points out, ‘tradition dictates that Prime Ministers cannot be portrayed at Westminster during their lifetime’. I can guess what the typical response to that will be.

Me, I’ve mellowed since the 80’s. I’d be happy to see it anyplace where pigeons can shit on it.

You can see the bloggerheads version of the statue by clicking here.

Oops – here’s another one…

The only man at the Institute of Contemporary Arts with taste and common sense has quit. He actually thinks, like the rest of us, that most modern art is “pretentious, self-indulgent, craftless tat”. Funnily enough, the rest of the board ganged up on him after this statement and made him fall on his sword.

Hmmm, I just had a great idea for an installation piece…

The following is taken from the list of Walker’s crisp flavours that are ‘suitable for vegetarians’:

- Walkers Beef & Onion Crisps

- Walkers Smoky Bacon Crisps

- Walkers Roast Chicken Crisps

WTF?!

Crisp fans will note with interest the absence of Cheese and Onion flavour from the list at the site. This is because the cheese powder is made with animal rennet. What’s ‘animal rennet’? It’s an enzyme taken from the stomach of killed newly-born calves. Yum!

Valentines Day got you down? Did you only get one pity card saying ‘choo-choo-choose me’?

Cheer up, friend – life could be worse. In fact, your love life could be so consistently disastrous as to drive you to buy a ‘Real Doll’ and spend a disturbing amount of time showering it with affection (and, presumably, bodily fluids). That’s just what Gordon Griggs has done and he explains his reasons for buying the most realistic sex-doll on the planet on this page. There are many, many pictures of the doll (named ‘Ginger’) dressed and posed in a number of ways, and even a pic of the man himself stashed waaay down the back. Enjoy.

[UPDATE – Geocities takes this site down from time to time as it often ‘exceeds its allocated data transfer’, but keep the link handy and do check it out when you can. It’s a great site, and well worth waiting for. In the meantime, you might want to entertain yourself by visting this Real Doll repairman.]
