Shame it got cut off.

Take Enda With You

Dear Bertie, we’ll miss you and all that but I think you could do us one final favour, if you could.

Take Enda With You.

You’re a ledge Bertie, a ledge.

All the recent RickRolling has gotten Curly K nostalgic. Well it could be called pissed off with me but we’ll collectively delude ourselves and call it nostalgic.

So they want to honour George Bush by naming a public facility after him. A sewerage treatment plant?

Two Tribes: Jazz Biscuit Versus The Chancer

Wednesday, April 2nd, 2008

Pop quiz hotshots, is it Jazz Biscuit or is it The Chancer? Forget Daddy or Chips, this is more important. Channel Highlander and all of that. Queuka bar lat.

Chancer V Soggy biscuit
The Chancer rose from the asses, er ashes of Blogorrah and started to reclaim the tiara of best pop/goss/stop on the web and they’re not dead yet but new kid on the block JazzBiscuit (known as soggy to some) has hit the ground punning and is finding all sorts of wonderful stuff. But you gotta decide now because Star Trek science says only one can exist in this reality. Choose!

Play this vid before you decide.

Note to Del and JB: none of this diplomatic shit of respecting each other and all of that. Broken bottles of buckfast and throats a.

Tuesday May 6th he’s gone.

Google “Munster Manager”, g’wan.

This was a good April 1st prank from Kieran.

While it’s a bloody shame this one is. I’d love a crowd who I can post docs to and they’ll scan em in and put them online.

For fuck’s sake this too is not a joke. Now glamour models are needed if you have cancer “up there”? Una covers it too.

Clever. I thought this was an April Fools. It’s not! Yes, do walk around your own constituency in a stabproof jacket. Sends a great message. Fecking eejit.

Brown Energy for the win.

Google says is a bit fishy.

Liquid Kiss. Cute.

Handy. Diary shower curtain.

I want a Pixel Couch.
