Why should I go and do something like that? But the Lord says, ‘Be submissive wives; you are to be submissive to your husbands.
Spurs could probably claim that they were robbed against Manchester City today, as Mario Balotelli could have been sent off after kicking Scott Parker in the head. Harry Redknapp thinks he should have been according to this report on the BBC. But he would wouldn’t he! And so do I!
On the other hand Spurs second goal had a bit of familiarity in my mind. Aaron Lennon weaved inside from the left and gave a perfect pass for Welshman Gareth Bale to drill home from outside the box.
I can remember that great Welsh winger, Cliff Jones, doing the same from probably the other wing and teeing the ball up for either John White or even Danny Blanchflower to score. It couldn’t have been Jimmy Greaves, as he usually scored inside the six-yard box and the distance was too great. Also Greaves didn’t join Spurs until the 1961-62 season and I have a feeling this was earlier.
Jones in his prime was as fast if not faster than Bale, although he wasn’t protected as much by the referee. He’s one of those players, who if they played in the modern era would be so much better.
My father also saw another great Welshman, who played on the wing for Tottenham in the 1930s. He was Taffy O’Callaghan, who although not being as fast as either Bale or Jones, was in a team nicknamed the greyhounds, which won promotion in 1932-33. But by repute he could hit the heavy leather ball as hard and accurate as any.
So perhaps Harry’s team will upset the odds and win the Premier League this year or perhaps in the near future. They have the most important brick in place.
The Sunday Times is reporting that RBS, or as I think it should be called, the Royal Bank of UK Taxpayers, is charging this rate for an unauthorised overdraft.
So the message is don’t go overdrawn if you bank with this wunch of bankers. But as a taxpayer, surely it is not a bad thing if a few idiots do, as they will help to make the bank profitable, so we can pass it on to another set of mugs.
On the other hand, we could bleed it dry, so it didn’t make any profits and then it might go bankrupt after which the liquidator could have their share and then pass two-fifths of five-eighths of fuck all to the government. After all Gordon Brown got us into this position by saving the bank in the first place, so that Scotland might vote for him. It was a good idea, as it looks like more voters north of the border preferred the SNP to Nulabor.
As an aside why is it always two-fifths of five-eighths of fuck all? A quarter would be simpler.
A friend sent me this amusing clock from France.
Just click it and it changes from analogue to digital and vice-versa.
Don’t worry if your French is not up to the level that is acceptable for a Republican presidential candidate as any liguaphobe can understand it.
By the way, I haven’t found a similar nude women clock.
The Sunday Times today has a section called The App List. As I don’t even have a smart phone, should I ask for a refund?
Should we revert to the original nickname of mobile phones of a poserphone for smart phones?
This headline is in today’s Sunday Times.
Apparently Barbie has been banned in Iran since 1996 according to this article. So police are now seizing them in shops.
A mother is quoted as saying that her daughter says the Iranian versions, Sara and Dara (Ken) are ugly and fat.
I don’t think my children ever had a Barbie. But they were all boys. On the other hand, they didn’t have an Action Man either.
A guy has just complained on the BBC program, Double Take, that he can’t buy 38 inch trousers in Next. I would seriously hope he couldn’t.
I can’t buy trousers in Next either, but that is because my waist is only 28 inch. And you have to be quick to find that size in most shops.
Let’s face it, the guy who complained was obese!
I think Parliament should set an example, by publishing their sizes, weight and BMI on the Internet. Otherwise, who will believe they are serious, when they say we are getting too obese as a nation.
It is being reported that fans are asking for their money back after seeing The Artist, because it’s silent.
It appeared that most of the requests were in Liverpool. Knowing the city well, it was probably a try on or people being funny.
As it was at the Odeon, which is a national chain, I suspect that the cinema staff were less attuned to the quality and nature of the film, than they were in the Barbican.
This comes from an article in the Scotsman.
The Royal Society of Edinburgh may now strip Goodwin of his fellowship. Amid the baying mob there are those prepared to take a more conciliatory view. Lord McConnell rightly says that what happened at the banks was a result of more than one man’s failings. The failure of RBS was systemic.
So will he be de kilted or whatever they do north of the border?
I read this on CityWire‘s web site.
Newspapers and stationary retailer WH Smith (SMWH.L) is to release a Christmas trading statement on Wednesday.
Those who were at school with me, might remember a notice pinned to the door of the Stationery Office, which said something like.
Hasn’t Moved in Years.
I hope we got the spelling right, as we were pupils at a Grammar School.
See if you can work it out from these quotes?
Here’s one from Michele Bachmann.
And here’s one from Rick Perry.
You can always follow me on Tweeter.
And this beautiul one is from Newt Gingrich
It doesn’t matter what I do. People need to hear what I have to say. There’s no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn’t matter what I live.
Isn’t that a mangled version of Do as I say, but not as I do.
This one of Mitt Romney’s at least is easy to understand.
We should double Guantanamo!
And here’s one from Rick Santorin.
One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country. It’s not okay. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be. [Sex] is supposed to be within marriage. It’s supposed to be for purposes that are yes, conjugal…but also procreative. That’s the perfect way that a sexual union should happen…This is special and it needs to be seen as special.
Frightening isn’t it!
Although, he’s out of the race, here’s a really stupid quote from Herman Cain.
The more toppings a man has on his pizza, I believe the more manly he is. A manly man don’t want it piled high with vegetables! He would call that a sissy pizza.
No wonder America is obese. But at least quotes like this help to cost dear old Herman his place in the race.
I was going to tag this with Humour. But that would be something this bunch of stupidos, as C would say, wouldn’t understand such a word.
