As I’ve grown older, if not wiser, I’ve come to appreciate silliness as one of the best, the most superlative, things about humanity. Silliness, even in the roughest of times, maybe especially on the worst of days, is never unimportant; a necessary break from the sheer nastiness of the absurdity in which we sometimes find ourselves.

So, after yet another week when the only sensible reaction to the news is to answer Twitter’s

‘What’s happening?’

with a hearty

how the fuck should I know?‘, I give you some much needed silliness.

Ok then…


This shouldn’t be as relevant today as it was once upon a time when Not The Nine O’Clock News took a shot at Reagan


I know I’ve put this up a couple of times before, but dammit, if I think of it, you get it: Punt and Dennis, playing Spot The Stiff.


It’s not uncommon on Twitter for me to observe, regarding something in the news, that #TheresAlwaysAYesMinisterClip. Because there always is. Like this one, on how to discredit a report you don’t like.

Oh, you haven’t seen The Muppets do Bohemian Rhapsody, you say? Well…


Earlier today, I saw the following tweet.

And, yes, I know it’s not Easter, but I was of course inevitably reminded of the following from Mitch… (It’s) Zombie Jesus Chocolate Day!

See you tomorrow, with… something else.



Fifty-seven more days. Fifty-seven more posts. One fifty-seventh birthday just had.

I’m trying something new with this run. I’ve signed up to ko-fi.com, so if you fancy throwing me a couple of dollars every so often, to keep me in a caffeine-fuelled typing mood, feel free. I’m on https://ko-fi.com/budgiehypoth

This post is part of a series of blog entries, counting up from my fifty-seventh birthday on 17th August 2021. You can see the other posts in the run by clicking here. (And you can see the posts in the run counting down to the birthday here.)6
