On Friday Tim Dowling for The Guardian caught up with Yanko Tsvetkov‘s naughty-but-nice “satirical maps of national stereotypes”.
Mapping stereotypes: “you should be able to find something here to offend you.”
So true, so very true.
So Malcolm threw in his two cents’ worth:
Yeah, Alphadesigner is shamelessly commercial. But —hey! — that’s the way Gove wants our (English) schools and Lansley our NHS. One of those is a cheap laugh.
On which topic (and no stereotypes — better believe it!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koY6kXhQDQo
Which, for those not prepared to make the hotline jump, is the viral of the interviewed Irishman telling us that bankers are one letter away from self-abusers.
Let us remember that Pete Baker (with whom Malcolm has previous) headlined his effort with a warning: “you should be able to find something here to offend you.”
At 23:06 pm this evening, this arrived in Malcolm’s in-box:
You have been awarded a yellow card on Slugger O’Toole.
The penalty was awarded for this comment:
The yellow card is visible on your profile and all your
comments. The card will expire in 1 days.
No further action is being taken now, you can still log in and
comment on the site. Further action which could be taken is
a red card (which will ban you from logging in or commenting
for 14 days), or a black card (which will ban you
from commenting or logging into this site for an indefinite
period of time).
There’s a whole pile of ironies in there, should one search.
