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.
