I was just leafing through some of my old receipts when I came across a parking fine from about a week ago. The offence? "Parking against traffic flow".

Baby Phone Toy Cursing (NSFW)
This is one very cool clip. Probably NSFW (not safe for work), though if you've got earphones (or some way of listening to the audio discretely) then it shouldn't matter.

I'm writing this at 6.30 in the morning -- I didn't wake up on my own accord, but was woken by my cat's quack (if you know my cat, you'll know that he's like a feline Tom Waits, and always sounds like he has had a little too much to drink). My cat is a... Continue Reading →
