Roach clip stats

Roach clip stats (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Might as well use this pic because it feels like I have to drag every blog hit out of you; why should I suffer alone?

I read this on my stats page: as of Wednesday 7/11/12 09:15 GMT:

Akismet has protected your site from 15,147 spam comments already.

It’s the ‘already’ which frightens me.  You wouldn’t think there was that much written garbage in the world, would you, never mind on one little blog?

Although, what am I saying?  I’m a blogger.



Forget the US Presidential Election result, here’s what caught my eye on Sky News today:

A woman in Ohio has been ordered to wear an ‘idiot’ sign after driving on a footpath to avoid a school bus picking up children.

Shena Hardin, 32, will have to stand at a junction as a warning to others, after she was repeatedly caught on camera driving dangerously.

A judge at Cleveland Municipal Court told Hardin she would have to wear a sign saying: “Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus.”

Hardin will have to complete the humiliating punishment between 7.45am and 8.45am on two days next week.

I wonder who she voted for?

This one comes from jokesaboutwriters.


Sweatshop (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A writer died and was given the option of going to heaven or hell.

She decided to check out each place first. As the writer descended into the fiery pits, she saw row upon row of writers chained to their desks in a steaming sweatshop. As they worked, they were repeatedly whipped with thorny lashes.

“Oh my,” said the writer. “Let me see heaven now.”

A few moments later, as she ascended into heaven, she saw rows of writers, chained to their desks in a steaming sweatshop. As they worked, they were repeatedly whipped with thorny lashes.

“Wait a minute,” said the writer. “This is just as bad as hell!”

“Oh no, it’s not,” replied an unseen voice. “Here, your work gets published.”
