This must be the scariest door in the world.

This is the motor room door to one of my jobs and have been going there for over a year, but never noticed the four men watching my back!

Creepy!

 

I know that it happened a couple of weeks ago but I would like to express my delight that John Gaunt has walked the plank from the radio station Talk Sport.

Although I think sacking him for calling a Tory councillor a “Nazi” and an “ignorant pig” during a discussion about banning smokers fostering children is a little harsh, in my opinion it has been coming for a long time.

When he started on Talk Sport he, for want of a better word, insisted that the callers call him “Gaunty”!?! which could be seen as a little bit too childish.

He is overly rude to people, usually shouting over and cutting off callers trying to make their point.

He refused to be on an end of the year show “Clash of the Titans” with George Galloway, thus ruining a top class show. (Mike Dicken would be turning in his grave)

The very silly and mostly f*#king annoying catch phases ruined every 10-1 show he did since 2005, plus the blatant plugging of his one man stage show and the petty (from both sides) digs between him and Chris Moyles were more than I could stand, so I turned off.

Now I like a shock jock most of the time. I think we all like to hear a foolish caller put in his/her place. Just a shame he couldn’t take it and defiantly couldn’t dish it out.

Looks like the 09 season of Formula 1 could be the ugliest since the mid 90’s.

I understand that all the aero regulations have been played with to increase grip and reduce the effect of a car following another, thus increasing overtaking but did they really have to make them look like they are carrying a couple of shelves at the front and showing their bum hole at the rear?? Lets hope we get used to them.

 

Great to see even at grass roots football,  a minutes silence is respected. 

Shame we (Halstead Town U7s, in black) went on to lose 6-1

 

A big thank you to the man who walked down Colchester High Street wearing Slippers.  Awesome! 

Why? .... I don't care, the man was wearing slippers.

Were his feet cold? .... I don't care, the man was wearing slippers

Did he get to where he wanted to go? .... I don't know, I don't care if he got hit by a bus, the man was wearing slippers.

The super spy I am, I managed to take some photos incognito style.

(Yes he is scratching his ass in the top picture.  Classy guy)

 

Well it looks like that time of year. Yes the big man is back on the bottle, Coke Santa. (Very unfortunate sentence).

Every year Coca Cola place the jolly bearded one on their bottles to entice kids into badgering their parents to part with an extra few £’s, and some would believe that Coca Cola invented the modern day image of Santa Claus ……….. which of course is crap.

In fact they started to use the image of Mr Claus in the 1930’s. The company was looking for ways to sell their product during the winter so they turned to a talented commercial illustrator, Haddon Sundblom, who was inspired by traditional English Christmas cards to create the famous drawings. 

The advertising campaign was a success and a legend was born.

I’m not a huge fan of “Colas”, I can drink the stuff and like mixing it with chasers, I prefer Pepsi to Coca Cola but would have a Lemonade, Cream Soda or Red Bull if I was forced into having a fizzy soft drink. But a few days ago I found myself staring at a wall of cans as I went to pay for my diesel.

I wasn’t really thirsty and probably wouldn’t have thought twice about buying a drink under normal circumstances but the presentation of a beautifully crafted wall made of blue and red cans was too much to take, and so I gave in. At the price of £1.35

I gave in!! Now looking back that’s a shite load of money for a can of cola, but it was so shiny and kept calling “buy my, buy me” and yes I paid for it, so imagine my disappointment when I finally got around to drinking the poxy thing. My initial reaction was “hhummm … different” but that soon wore off when I realised what I was actually tasting was defrosted ice poles (Icebergs).

£1.35 for a warm ice pole!!!

Further tests have to be carried out….
