I found this Polaroid photo alongside the pavement while walking into work a couple of weeks ago. It's nice to see that, despite the apparently dark, grotty, noisy (note the earplugs) conditions in the factory, the bloke towards the back seems really happy to be there.

"Tuna and mayo? OK...
I know this stuff does say 'salad cream' on the container and er.. it looks a bit like salad cream.. and it might taste like it to you.. but er.. it is mayonnaise, it's er.. how mayonnaise was when it was invented, the real thing like. Isn't that right, Dave?"

At my day job we decided to celebrate Easter by producing a game; what could be more appropriate than inbred hillbilly chickens?

"I'm actually a very safe driver..."
Anyone who's recently watched daytime TV in the UK will no doubt have encountered this amazing advertisement [warning: huge MPEG video file].

It not only features an incredibly subtle, layered performance by Michael Winner (director of Death Wish, Death Wish 2 and Death Wish 3), but also the lowest-velocity crashes ever seen outside of an old people's home car park.

Forget Dr Pepper, after last week I'm proud to announce this site is now sponsored by Dioralyte Relief™.

Let's just say that er.. the landlord of my digestive tract suddenly ordered a mass eviction by both exits, but thanks to Dioralyte Relief™ I'm now back to full health.

An innovative filing system refined over the years

Following a jolly Saturday afternoon chat on my mobile with a nice man at the Inland Revenue, I had to spend some time sorting through 6 years of paperwork. Nothing as interesting as fraud or tax evasion was involved I'm afraid (if anything they owe me some cash), but it did manage to distract me from site updates for a while.

Hi Louise, I'm afraid I've never been to Benidorm and don't smoke, so that information's never been something I've needed, sorry. Have a nice holiday though.
