Apple trade marks 'There's an app for that'

Workaround

Easy way to get around this - just amend the abbreviation a tad:

"Copyright whores? There's an appl for that!"

Disney punts hetero luuurv to wide-eyed kiddies

FAIL

Hardly an influence

Regarding these sorts of whinges on "impressing roles" upon kids, I often point out that when I was a lad, I got toy guns for Christmas, and my sister got Barbie dolls. Now, She's in the Army, and I'm a panto dame.

If these films did have that sort of influence, she'd now be a princess, co-habiting with 7 wizened geriatrics, and I'd probably be an axe-wielding wicked queen's bitch. Not the case.

Hmmmm....

"He isn't the Buddha, he's a human being"

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Buddha was a human being.

Too busy to make a jam sandwich? M&S can help

Oddbodd
Thumb Up

What problem?

This is a good thing. I've whinged for years about sandwich shops never selling "proper" sarnies - i.e. Marmite, peanut butter, jam, et cetera. They're certainly a lot more appealing than the usual "healthy choice" rubbish that is stuffed full of rotting lettuce.

Bring it on.

Boffins ponder Geordies' lack of winter clothing

Oddbodd

And it's not just the pubs and clubs...

Every time Newcastle United are on telly, even if it's an away tie at Antarctica United, there's always at least one shot of a shirtless, bald, Geordie shouting his mouth off while swilliing lager (more recently, this has been the club's owner). What is also noticeable about each of these fellows is that they make Jabba the Hutt look like something off a Special K advert. Natural insulation, innit?

Ticketmaster and Live Nation forge unholy alliance

Oddbodd

LiveNation, Soulless indeed

These are the people who run Sunderland Empire, who tried charging me a £3 fee for box office collection for tickets a while ago. Needless to say, I didn't buy them. Along with booking fee, the extra charges would have amounted to more than 25% of the advertised ticket prices.

ArseASA rules 'Feck' non-offensive

I'd try...

...to look up the history of Feck on Wikipedia, to check the statements made above. But I bet the IWF have blacklisted that page.
