  1. After seeing Mr. Moltz in the YouTube coverage of the Macworld panel he was on, I find myself wondering who his hair stylist is. Maybe I should switch from Great Clips to something more avant garde.

  2. Help. Was watching SuperBowl XLVii and heard a referee/umpire call two penalties that cancelled each other out, both called Unnecessary roughness.

    Please define unnecessary roughness and does this rule apply to Fifty Shades of Grey?

  3. Nxxx, unnecessary roughness may be welcome with those shades of gray. But I don’t think it would improve the gawdawful prose (from what I’ve heard). Wouldn’t get near that drivel.

    In American football, the guy with the white hat is the referee. The other officials all have different titles, but not the little P.A. microphone thingie.

    And you know that something bad happened when they throw a flag and their hat.

  4. I like that the Superbowl now goes on so long they try to simulate the ‘day/night’ aspect of proceedings by turning off the floods halfway through. Now *that’s* entertainment.

  5. Can you imagine anyone in the Coliseum, whilst the gladiators were at it, throwing a flag and their hat in the arena and stopping play?

    Just as likely during the Christians versus Lions, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals would turn up and charge the Christians with unnecessary cruelty by running away.

  6. BroMu – Wait until next year, when the Super Bowl is played outdoors, near New York City. I wonder how many people would be willing to spend a lot of money to nearly freeze to death.

    Nxxx – Maybe throwing a flag and a hat would distract the lions. They won’t let me try that at the zoo.

  7. Steve, are you familiar with the sartorial selections of supporters at Newcastle football club at all? A quick google may prove enlightening.

  8. Read Dickens.
    The only change is the modern one out near Woolwich, where the really naughty boys are kept. Makes Guantanamo seem like a holiday camp.

  9. A mate of mine works in Belmarsh.


    It’s given him a very optimistic view of human nature.

    Not unlike hanging round the MegaPost.

    Only with slightly fewer stabbings with makeshift ‘shivs’.

    Belmarsh, I mean.

  10. Nxxx, I take it from your comment that the prison conditions haven’t improved from Dickens’ time.

    I’m going to have to advise her again to mind her manners, hand gestures, and potentially offensive jokes to Aussie barkeeps.

  11. Steve,
    Whilst we lecture you about gun laws, most of us carry a lance and shield when popping down the road on our horses and donkeys, that is those that have not been served up as beef in our kebebs and burgers, to Walmart, branded ASDA over here.

    Despite this, remember that our hard man Ross Kemp, had his then wife, Rupe Murdoch’s flame haired favourite, Rebeka, held overnight in a police station as she was beating him. Following Thatcher, we are all wary of females.

  12. My Lance has been banned from ‘popping down the road’ now.

    Certainly competitively.

    And most assuredly when ‘on the horse’.

  13. Where can one acquire a lance locally? (You can’t even give our Lance away.)

    I am inquiring because I believe that they will not let the missus board an airplane carrying one.

  14. Wrap it up like a present, Steve. Tell them it’s an extra-large SwingBall.

    That should fool ’em.

    Like Arnie’s shotgun bouquet in Terminator II.

  15. Nxxx,

    Whilst she would appreciate the press coverage (minus the phone hacking), she does not grace your shores until late March. Plenty of time to hide the good silver.

  16. While I have been avidly following the discussion (I am a long-time student of looting), I must apologize for not contributing. The reason is that my writing staff is on strike, purportedly because offering each a first aid kit and a toothbrush doesn’t meet their expectations for health care benefits. Once I get the disagreement sorted out, I may again be able to add something to the proceedings.

  17. Ace,
    If you are submitting self written prose rather than your staff composed items, that makes you a blackleg in union terms.

    Which of your lower members is it, the left or right?

  18. You have a scab on your ‘lower member’?

    Surely that’ll need more than a first aid kit and a toothbrush straight off?

  19. Not a transfer from Silent Hill though?

    I’m not sure how they run things over there, but I was extremely dissatisfied with the attitude of the one I had from that neck of the woods.

    Only gave her two stars on my feedback form.

  20. Steve,
    Having lost our Triple A economic status and the pound being at its lowest against the dollar for two years, your wife would be an extremely attractive proposition for one of our gigolos.

  21. Before I get myself into trouble (like if she happens to be reading over my shoulder), I’m going to decline further participation in this line of the discussion. I’ll join back in a bit, or when I think of an interesting non-sequitur.
