The idiots at bestfinance-blog.com like to sign up to unrelated websites and spam their doubtless extortionate wares in places where their adverts aren't wanted. If you're reading this, I suggest you avoid them!

I've seen that anti-social paint. There's a little gang of it that hangs around in the park, always drinking cheap cider and yelling insults at passers-by. Bring back the birch, that's what I say!

I heard a rumour (online, so it must be true) that he sold this website and us as a job lot to ICHC. He got nearly two quid for it, apparently.

"Media reports suggest that 60% of Australia's population is overweight or obese. Other reports indicate rising sea levels. Is it possible that these two factors have a bearing on each other? In other words, the continent is sinking due to the excess weight of the population." (Comment News, Perth, WA)

I saw this one in Private Eye last night.

"The weapon was an air rifle, but was in such bad condition that it could have caused real damage had it had been fired."

So, a working, correctly maintained air rifle is incapable of doing any damage at all?
