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.


Matt Green on British political… accountability…?

One of my favourite ads, ever. If you have to ask why, you don’t know me very well…

And the ad that launched a thousand (well a couple of dozen, anyway) parodies; the original Cogs advert

Definitely one for the smile file; Laura Shepherd-Robinson’s niece, Lyla… who I confidently predict will have her own sub-volcano lair within the next 20 years.


Mitch Benn (in 2018) reminds us all not to get too excited about Christmas… yet.

See you tomorrow, with… something else.



Sixty-one days. Sixty-one posts. One 2022 approaching.
