You wouldn't? I was under the impression they were considered fairly essential these days.

Hey, who needs water when you've got superfast broadband?

It kind of reminds me of that "One Laptop Per Child" scheme. Sure, give them all laptops, so they can get on the Internet and read about how much better off they'd be if they had fresh running water rather than a bloody computer.

I saw this one in Private Eye last night.

I saw it here first, though. Another first for Who Invented Foxes!

Yeah, they've been copying us. Couldn't possibly be the other way round, of course, even if I do happen to be a newsagent and thus able to get a look at magazines before the general public can buy them. :-)

The most crime-ridden area in England and Wales is in the UK...? Who'd have thought it?
    Posted by JT on 1 Feb 2011.
Clearly that area should be granted independence, making the UK a safer place to live!

I dunno, shooting or knifing people seems kind of anti-social to me! (From http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-12311184)

Should we perhaps have a "News" category too?
    Posted by JT on 24 Jan 2011.
Yes, I think we should. Hey, Poppy, you got us to create a category, so you can pretend it's yours if you like :)
