A Snowman's Delight

I love all of Cyanide & Happiness, but this one is a special favorite (right after the one where a surgeon molests a patient who has just been put under, but she wakes up, and the next thing, he tells her husband "Your wife died on the operating table.") Warning: The content of this book may be considered "illicit, insensitive, perverse, profane, dark, depraved, reprehensible and, well, just plain wrong".

A Christmas Story

I am sure most people will already know how the tradition of the angel on the Christmas tree came about, but just as Christmas comes around every year, some stories can still elicit a chuckle or two even after you have heard them a dozen times already.   "Four of Santa's elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the pre-Christmas pressure. Then Mrs. Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa even more

Santa, Cupid and Easter Bunny in a pub

I was clearing out a lot of stuff at home this morning when I came upon an old newspaper clipping. It was a cartoon of Santa, Cupid and Easter Bunny in a pub.   Santa: "My life is in the hands of flying livestock."   Cupid: "At least you don't have to flit around half-naked in the middle of February."   Easter Bunny: "Try laying a colored egg sometime."   While the holiday season for many people is a time to enjoy and indulge, it is only possible through the hard work of those toiling a

The Incident at the Gingerbread House

"I think there must be something wrong with me, Linus. Christmas is coming, but I'm not happy. I don't feel the way I'm supposed to feel. I just don't understand Christmas, I guess. I like getting presents and sending Christmas cards, and decorating trees and all that, but I'm still not happy. I always end up feeling depressed."   - Charlie Brown   Being neither pro or anti Christmas spirit, this time of the year is not as bad for me as it seems to be for Charlie Brown. But having alwa

I am in the mood for alienating people

Picking up from a long running forum thread about $500+/hr WL's, I decided not to add further to the general melee, but only to congest my own blog space with my thoughts:   Everybody loves to bitch about pricing differences. (Myself included, just this morning I went to the market and found that corn on the cob costs $2 - it was $4 for 3 last week, you wanker!)   Everybody has the right to bitch though people will tend to think you are.. Old - because old people love to complain Bored - b

The (Lost) Art of Fingering

Fingering seems to have become something of a lost art, to the point that the comedian Micky Flanagan is blaming the rise of teenage pregnancy in the UK on its demise.   People used to spend much more time just feeling their way around each others bits and pieces. Mind you, those were the days when going from first to second, and then from second to (holiest-of-holy) third base could take weeks, if not months! Even the transition from touching above the sweater to touching below the sweater w
