back to article Move over, John Pilger, let us IT scandal-mongerers stick it to you

Many thanks to the gentle readers who wished me well over the last couple of weeks as I lay in bed watching the ceiling spin. For those of you who enjoy listening to people whose name you are familiar with but whom you don’t really know talk at length about their petty illnesses as if they were life-threatening events of …

Bless you for the suggestion, Zog but I would have been a tweenager at the time.

I thought the sprog possessed a rather scary resemblance to Saville himself, which would probably also mean that various incarnations of Dr Who around that time may also have had some explaining to do...

Welcome back, not me.

Good to see your feeling better,

and I'll agree the list is appropriate for recovering from online scandal.

Mind you most public "figures" are too addicted to the "attention" to "go away" -- or to "learn how to look contrite"

I'll raise a glass at you on a friday sir!.

Glad you're back. I thought the playmobil was a reconstruction of you on your deathbed until I read the caption.

Can I get some clarification here?

Are the mouth-foaming, hairy-palmed right-wingers inept losers or brilliant masters of PR?

I've always had problems telling the difference when identifying caricatured villains.

Re: Can I get some clarification here?

Theirs is the righteous anger spiel. The left is just as bad. They just have the psycho mother approach as they cry at being thwarted to bring GOODNESS into the world (at no additional taxpayer expense, natch) and having been made to DO THINGS to others.

in order to pick up my Nexus

See this would never had happened had you had an Apple before bed because as we know these don't have a spin factor

Re: in order to pick up my Nexus

No, it's the Higgs Boson that doesn't have any spin. Apple spin is mediated by the Reality Distortion Field, and can take any value except zero.

WTF Dabbs!

Why did you include that link to Breitbart? "Krauthammer on Obama's Iraq Statement: 'It's as If He's Learning How the Presidency Is Done'". I now have the terrible urge to punch neocon/WaPo opininator jaw with the force of a thousand Tyson.

'Many thanks to the gentle readers who wished me well over the last couple of weeks'

By that I assume you mean commentards who were slightly less abusive than normal?

Yes, but come on ... that's only because we were all "ill" last week, and they dug up a set we'd previously done for Bill Ray.

I misread "learn how to look contrite" - advice to the person involved in a scandal - as "learn how to cook", which was distracting, suggesting a return to public attention via guest appearances on daytime television or getting a book out for Christmas.

But what if you are already mainly famous for cooking?

Euphemistic musings

Quote - Dabbsy: "Tiger Woods’ inability to keep his nine iron sheathed"

I'd have said it was more likely to be his putter, his 1-Wood, or if you must, his driver. Unless of course, Dabbsy actually meant Tiger was using a very short-shafted club, but that implies rather more intimate knowledge than I would have expected from him.

Just be glad he kept his Baffing Spoon in the bag.
