Stolen from PFM, but…
Cock van der Palm looks uncannily like Dave Grohl.
are these just mere examples from your extensive collection?
Athletes with very short hair, I wonder why that is?
Clearly being a fucking moron is no impediment to rising up through the ranks of the Tory party machine.
It’s a prerequisite from what I can see, so given that I might apply for a job there myself.
I think you may be over qualified
Wonderful bit of merciless assassination (save for the poor staff who may loose their jobs because of this). I’m particularly impressed with her comment that the unpleasant peanut monkfish is still living with her ‘like a goitre’.
I need to up my game for the resumption of the AAAC.

I thought these warships had radar? Didn’t they notice a 222 metre-long, 29,000 ton ship getting close? Or did they just assume that it’d get out of their way?
The article said the container ship made a sharp turn before the collision but even still those things don’t turn on a coin.
Not sure what sort of radar they are fitted with but the ones we use in the Dover straight are able to calculate the course of a ship based on direction and speed within 30 secs of a direction change.
As a Glaswegian, I’m delighted that one of our greatest has been knighted.
This documentary on iplayer is well worth watching.
Very well deserved.
What coffee machine does he use?
This is based on an actual radio conversation between a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier (U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln) and Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October, 1995. (The radio conversation was released by the Chief of Naval Operations on 10/10/95 authorized by the Freedom of Information Act.)
Canadians: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid collision.
Americans: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision.
Canadians: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.
Americans: This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.
Canadians: No, I say again, you divert YOUR course.
Americans: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER USS LINCOLN, THE SECOND LARGEST SHIP IN THE UNITED STATES’ ATLANTIC FLEET. WE ARE ACCOMPANIED BY THREE DESTROYERS, THREE CRUISERS AND NUMEROUS SUPPORT VESSELS. I DEMAND THAT YOU CHANGE YOUR COURSE 15 DEGREES NORTH–I SAY AGAIN, THAT’S ONE FIVE DEGREES NORTH–OR COUNTER-MEASURES WILL BE UNDERTAKEN TO ENSURE THE SAFETY OF THIS SHIP.
Canadians: This is a lighthouse. Your call.
Could someone get this carbon dated please?
