NEWS ROUND UP

JAKE'S DAD JOINS THE BLOGGING CRAZE

God, as soon as I start doing something everyone has a go - I distinctly remember donning a tight fitting nylon Union Jack dress just one month before Ginger Spice did and don't even get me started on Russ Trolls! Anyways, Jake's higly literate and well read pappa has written an online article about George Bush and nuclear war and stuff if you're interested. I thought you might be because some of you seem to be nursing a major crush on him. For the record, you are so wrong but I won't punish you for it. Read the article here.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MA'AM

As much as I try and fit in with my American friends, what with my hip slang talk and references to er...Teri Hatcher and Jackie Stallone, sometimes I just have to accept that I'm British. So like all good citizens of the Empire I wish Her Majesty a very happy 80th birthday. This broad ain't never gonna die.
A passing nineteenth century Cockney added, "God bless ya ma'am. Shes just like us really! Now excuse me, I have to go sweep chimneys. God Save The Queen!"

RODEO RUBRIC WINNER
Congratulations to squallcloud for winning that coverted week in the stocks for this rubric:
"I sure hope Ennis don't find out I'm courtin' Mexican street walkers again or it's my ass!"
I awarded points for the Brokeback Mountain reference, gay connotations, the word 'ass', inclusion of a South American country and most importantly, mockery of Robert Downey Junior.
I just want to say I'm proud of you all for particpating and I'm especially impressed with how low you all sank in your bid to poke fun at Jake. I also have to give an honourable mention to claire for referencing 1970's British culture.

I am loving the Daddy/soon-to-be Grandad news, I think that this was directed to Chantelle so I will leave the "Another Sexy Gyllenhaal" comments to her.
Ahhh Yes God save our good old queen! Unfortunatley I cannot forget I am British as the hail is pounding down on my roof as I type....Ahhh British springtime.Damn it Britpop! You have got me singing "Chim-Chimeny!" now!
Well done to Squallcloud for the brilliant captions. I also love the whole Jake run-off thing! And that thing about the IBS cracked me up for no reason, even though I wrote it.
Keep up the good work Britpop, I know you are probably grieveing as I am about the loss of our dear Dill, but keep that chin up and keep that stiff, British, upper lip from a quiverin'!

Hazar! So Dill is offically dead? I was thinking he was now sporting more of a baby Dill.

Not to nit-pick, but Mexico is in North America. I have to commend your "keeping up with your American friends," though, as most of us would like to pretend there are no other countries on our continent. We grudgingly accept Canada, but only because it's hard to ignore thst it's just sitting on top of us like that.

God I hate it when celebrities think we care about their politics - even when I agree with them.

Whoops! I apologise. They really should have a 'Middle America' because that's where it is.

Chantelle said...

Hello? How many other people find Mr Gyllenhaal Sr. good looking (when one forgets that Mr Gyllenhaal Jr. does not exist, which is slightly impossible) other than me?? I would like to know. Btw, good article, my fav part was the bit about "watching cowboy movies".

Yes, it was my good old future Grandma-in-laws birthday, saw a bit of future husband, it's all good.

SquallCloud said...

I never win anything so yay for me! :)

I love the irony of you spelling "highly literate" wrong...

britpopbaby said...

Whoops! I didn't notice that.
