A mark of shame to be proudly worn

The story so far:

On Friday Tim Dowling for The Guardian caught up with Yanko Tsvetkov‘s naughty-but-nice “satirical maps of national stereotypes”.

Then Pete Baker, who had first nibbled at it last September, was on Slugger O’Toole with a second bite, under the title:

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:

There’s a whole pile of ironies in there, should one search.
