People keep pestering me to update, but honestly, darling, I'm not up to it.
So here is a link in the hope that you will be amused.
Please make up your own jokes and keep this blog going for another day or two.

On a related note, I was in my office today, when I heard an altercation between some motorists outside. One of them yelled "Hey, arsehole!". My lovely young assistant responded by saying "He's in here". Such a nice boy.

PS. Scaryduck is in spectacular form today.

Thank you Vicus. It was an almost sexual thrill to commiserate with someone else about that hateful pit of obscenity known as Disney World.

Frontier Editor said...

May I also recommend for your assitant a technique I've found very useful with my photographer? Withhold his gruel for a few days and make him walk barefoot in the snow. It brings his thoughts around to a suitably submissive and malleable state in short order.

Pamela said...

FE, you are in charge of your photographer's gruel? I do the same for my children.

Hasn't worked so far.

Also, I've never been to Disneyworld. Or to France, for that matter. I have been to Disneyland once.

I suppose there's not a lot going on in New Zealand.

i came here and found short sentences directing me elsewhere. i went to scary duck and it also has a link going elsewhere.

i feel like i'm looking for the blonde joke once again.

Vicus Scurra said...

Treespotter, had you gone to Scaryduck when I told you, you would have found a very useful tale about Disneyworld.
It is not my fault.
Scaryduck, who does sometimes work at weekends, has updated his blog with data about the revenge of his offspring, which I will be monitoring quite closely.
Zoe suffered a similar problem, but her son is of that age where nothing lasts very long. But it was fun while it was there.
I would like to encourage other readers to get their kids to spill beans.

Pamela said...

Spill beans?

Lorainne said...

Youtr assistant sounds like a fine young man.

Vicus Scurra said...

Lorainne, I have read your blog and you seem to be a sensible sort of lass. I must therefore counsel you against making rash decisions about people.
I will tell him about your kind comments, and hope that that does not result in his becoming a nuisance to you. I suspect that very few people have ever been so kind to him.
I certainly haven't.
Please stick around. There are many here who suffer the same lack of kindness, and your willingness to overlook shortcomings may be of benefit to them all.

Vicus Scurra said...

And Pamela. YES. spill beans. general beans. rather than specific ones.

Pamela said...

Well, that begs the question, white beans? Red beans? Kidney beans? Black ones? There are so many to choose from.

And this is me, asking you to please do an update. We're waiting patiently.

Frontier Editor said...


If he does an update, that means you'll have to abuse Adam roundly. Not that I had any particular problem being abusive, but you have a nicer streak than I

I hope you feel well again soon.

(There. I meant that. You were expecting me to say something funny, but I didn't)
