And this is the same government

that wants unrestricted access to my mobile phone's camera, microphone and data, even though they say they'll never actually use it.

What was up with Social Media Man's arms? It was like he was doing "I'm a little teapot" whilst drunk.

That clip proves something I often tell people - unless there's a good reason, just stick to putting your message out clearly and without embellishment.

If you want to spice it up by making it humorous, clever or interesting, make sure you actually are funny, clever and/or interesting. If you are in fact dry and dull then it'll show. It shows.
