    This blue cat fellow (he writes for the telly you know) issues forth an apparently effortless stream of grade-A funniness that has me overcome in turns by helpless laughter and shameful, powerful envy. There I've said it.

  • The man who fell asleep; Sadness and ecstasy in unequal measures
    The book inspired by this veteran site (A Year in the life of The Man Who Fell Asleep) features the 'sarcastic polar bears of north London' among other oddities that the author manages somehow to render absolutely plausible.

    Birmingham's finest. Writing with enviable clarity on every subject under the sun since 2000 (a very long time indeed!). Now with added nice pictures of canals and stuff...
  • Looby
    'An awkward, clumsy fellow; a lubber; a novice'....a venerated (if refreshingly irreverent) blogging institution. Lancaster's very finest!

December 22, 2004



Think I'd cry too if I found a bearded woman playing santa.

We had something similar in Nottingham a few weeks ago, only it was Batman on top of the Council House. Sadly the police made him get down and take his banner with him after a while.


For a minute there, Paul, I thought you were saying Batman had been spotted standing with his banner on top of 'a council house in Nottingham' which I would not have thought was the most eye-catching way to publicise his demands, and certainly a come-down from his recent headline-making escapades on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.

By the way my stats tell me yours is the one hundredth comment to this site (including my own ones) since the advent of Crinklybee back in June- during which time there have been exactly fifty posts.

To commemorate this pleasingly symetrical milestone, a special prize of a booncy hammer inscribed with the Morrissey-inspired site motto 'two lumps please, you're the bees knees, but so am I' is winging its way to you as we speak. Not really. But I can assure you if I had such an item I would certainly send it to you. It is the thought that counts, after all.


I'm gutted you haven't got one of those. It'd go nicely in our newly painted lounge.

Still, the thought is much appreciated.


Oh dear...

Jonathan: Whenever Paul starts talking with pride about his decorating and DIY prowess, I find the best course of action is to indulge in mockery. Failing that, just feign selective deafness.

Hope you had a good Xmas, and best wishes for the New Year.


Perhaps he needs a booncy Black and Decker workmate to go with his booncy hammer. And a set of booncy Phillips screwdrivers.

It was a great Christmas, thanks- my best wishes to you for the New Year, also, Ben.
