The Small Matter Of The Bar Tab (2)

Yes, it’s time to remind patrons that this rickety barge is kept afloat by the kindness of strangers. If you’d like to help it remain buoyant for a while longer, and remain ad-free, there’s an orange button below with which to monetise any love. Debit and credit cards are accepted. For those wishing to express their love regularly, there’s a monthly subscription option top left. And if one-click haste is called for, my PalPay.Me page can be found here. Additionally, any Amazon shopping done via this link or the search widget top right, or for Amazon US via this link, results in a small fee for your host at no extra cost to you.

For newcomers wishing to know more about what’s been going on here for the last decade or so, and in over 2,500 posts and 80,000 comments, the reheated series is a pretty good place to start, and where you’ll find things like this, and like these. If you can, do take a moment to poke through the discussion threads too. The posts are intended as starting points, not full stops, and the comments are where much of the good stuff is waiting to be found. And do please join in.

Again, thanks for the support, the comments, and the company. 



Thanks for all the work (and the laughs). Your tipjar has been hit.


Your tipjar has been hit.

Much appreciated. May the letters never fade from your well-worn keyboard, resulting in occasional guesswork.


Thanks for cataloguing the bedlamites.




Bless you, sir. May the number of items you can get away with not ironing be vast and ever-growing.


Well David, whilst I am happy to (occasionally) monetise my love for your work, the next time I'm in London (I think next year) I would be even happier to treat you to any meal n drinks at any venue you wish?. Genuine offer made in good faith.

I have found your site to be the most interesting, educational and quirky I have ever frequented. You really have re-ordered the way I see the world (political or otherwise)and I've been visiting for many years now and it consistently entertains.

PS. I'd also be happy to provide a valid medical opinion on any recurrent and/or embarrassing rashes and fungal infections you may still have...... Just trying to be kind.


the next time I’m in London

It’s a kind offer, but I don’t live in or near London. In fact, it’s a place I’m generally happy to avoid.

You really have re-ordered the way I see the world

I’m not sure which of us should be more worried.


"In fact, it’s a place I’m generally happy to avoid"

I like the cut of your cloth.

"I’m not sure which of us should be more worried."

I used to be a full-on-right-on SJW etc (honest) and your site was one of the first I regularly visited shortly after taking the red pill. The momentum gathered from there.


The momentum gathered from there.

Personal growth. :-)


Thanks again to all who’ve hit the tip jar, or subscribed, or used the Amazon links. It’s what keeps this place here and is much appreciated.

Captain Nemo

It would appear that Thanos didn't do a very good job of slaying me. I was only mostly slain, as a matter of fact. As a consequence, I don't get paid until the end of the month, but when I do, 'ping' incoming.


‘ping’ incoming.

May your undergarments never bunch in an unsightly manner.
