Dreadful Nonsense

"I've read your blog. it's really funny. you should write a column." - Jon Ronson

It’s the Wednesday Link-O-Rama!

In direct competition with the current give away of learn-a-language CDs that the lesser British papers are currently giving away (interestingly, one of the selling points of the Daily Mail campaign is that “you don’t even have to read a book (exclamation mark, exclamation mark, exclamation mark)”, said in a tone that implies that the printed word is the most tiresome thing in the world - an interesting angle for a newspaper to take): The Guardian teaches you how to swear in a variety of languages! This article even teaches you how to say the “c-word” in Spanish. How useful.

And also: Finally, an answer for all your goose clothing worries: It’s Goose Clothes Dot Com! Bear in mind that a goose, like a swan, can kill you with it’s eyes, and then wonder upon these creations. My favourite outfits are the Doctor and Nurse ones, although it’s a close call between them and EVERYTHING ELSE ON THIS PAGE. I’m tempted to buy a pair of gooses* just so I can dress them up. I don’t quite understand this pairing though.

*yes, I said “gooses”. Learn to live with it.
