Channelling Whitney Houston, a robot professes its love.

I've heard much worse.

Running late today, David?

the Lexus luxury maglev hoverboard is way better than that crappy old hoverboard you make do with.

The wife says no. I'm gutted.

I mis-scheduled the automated post. There may have been wine involved.

Fake tan + breastfeeding = bad idea.

Great parenting fails of our time.

That bespoke kennel company really should have been called bow-haus, or bow-wow-haus.

I can appreciate the butt-licking cats, but for my money, I prefer Rembrandt's pooping dog.

Speaking of parenting, while poking through my image library I found this:

What?

And the moral of the story: You can get rid of rats, but you can't get rid of Laurie Penny!

Surely this is the highlight of the day?

Despite her attempts to glamorise squalor, I’m still not sure why Laurie imagines she must, simply must, live in a city that by her own admission she can’t afford to live in. If London is indeed now “all but uninhabitable” for “artists” and “writers” and the various poseurs with whom Laurie claims to feel affinity, then perhaps the market is sending a message about supply and demand. Though I suppose living somewhere else, and possibly doing something else, something more in demand and more likely to pay the bills, would be insufficiently radical.

Just one gem, chosen by closing my eyes and then random scrolling my screen and then stabbing it with my finger:

Imagine our surprise when we found created a post-capitalist anarcho-syndicalist utopia entirely by accident.

Somewhere in between the bathroom-cleaning rota and the decision to host queer dance parties as a community service, politics happened.

The only thing missing is for the squat to be in Mayfair.

I dunno, I think Laurie's having us on. No one actually lives in an anarcho-syndicalist utopia that happily.

Not by choice. But when done as virtue signalling and with the ever present option to return to ones comfortable middle-class milieu......

Ah, banner, I getcha. "Look at me, I'm so outre! Like a naked artist!"

R. Sherman

@banner,

I note, Penny refers to something called "fair-trade pornography." WTF is that? I thought "fair-trade" meant "overpriced and shitty quality?"

David

“Fair-trade pornography” and “pronoun awareness.” What a time to be alive.

I'd be outraged about the Marlboro kid except I'm laughing too hard.

David

It’s a work of costuming genius. And you’d definitely give that kid some sweets.

The Lurker on the Threshold

This is also a fun read.

David

This is also a fun read.

Sounds about right.

Comprehensive school in Britain in 1962 ? I doubt it. That was during the Earl of Hume's government.
