I know it's too much to hope for, but I hope they all shut him out.

There's panic in the aisles of Waitrose and rioting in the carparks of Tesco as the courgette and Iceberg lettuce shortage leads to vegetable rationing . . .

Vegetable crisis hits supermarkets!!!!!

. . . meanwhile a customer in Lidl was asked for their opinion and replied: "What's a courgette?"

This 'rationing' doesn't smack of an attempt to grab free publicity, no no no, not at all...

I clicked on to the Book of Face today* and was informed in one of the info boxes that, among other topics, 4.9k people were currently talking about Pubic Hair.

I have no idea what to do with this information, or why pubic hair should be the topic of such hot debate in the first place. Has it finally broken free of its human owners and is now running amok or something?

With a subject such as this it is definitely very important to your health (though whether it is more important to your mental health to avoid or to your intimate health to find out what is so important...) :shock:

If I hadn't been foolish enough to start that community group, I would be avoiding Facebook for very long stretches. It's definitely detrimental to your mental health!

According to Kellyanne Conway, you can forget the CIA accessing your mobile, TV or Laptop to spy on you - it's your microwave you really need to be worrying about:

“What I can say is there are many ways to surveil each other now, unfortunately,” including “microwaves that turn into cameras, etc,” Conway told New Jersey’s the Record newspaper in an interview on Sunday. “So we know that that is just a fact of modern life.”


My Kettle says it's all a plot by the dastardly Coffee Maker to seize control from the Toaster and don't even start me on what the Iron gets up to when it thinks my back is turned . . .
