    Just what is he making that boy do?

    Actually, I’m going to disagree. As a parent I find the paranoia about what some politically correct Nazi considers appropriate an all encompassing problem.

    Kids spend much of their life at crotch height to adults.

    Big laugh.

    How about just a bit of creative photoshop work?

    NO! – Not that.

    Just insert the word “imaginary” in the appropriate place on the message.

  5. [...] Then today I saw this on MediaWatchWatch (opponents of my opponent). It’s a particularly funny cover of My Friend Magazine, the Catholic magazine for children. [...]

    And of course Jesus is blond haired and blue eyed, not Semitic at all.

    Marc – I’d rather insert the word “special” in the appropriate place, after all, if you are going to insinuate something, may as well do it properly.

    Incidentally, did anyone else see Beyer on the box last night talking about Life of Brian? I was trying to find something suitably intelligent and witty to say, but actually just found myself wanting to smack him in the face. I know it’s wrong and I have sinned and will go to hell, but it would actually be worth it. And Terry Jones said clever and relevant and witty things anyway.

    Happy New Year everyone.

    Yes I saw that program about the Life of Brian. Damn good program and I think all the Pythons that were there (Eric Idle strangely absent) made some good points, especially the two Terry’s.

    Good grief – its Dave Gahan the singer from Depeche Mode! Altogether now…
