Shocking quote of the day...

Well, it is not the quote that is shocking, but the source; yes, ladies and gentlemen, I am about to quote, approvingly, everyone's favourite loony, socialist Councillor. Because, barking mad and possibly evil though Terry Kelly may be, there is one person who is lower than he...
Toynbee is an embarrassment to the Guardian’s great traditions.

She would chop down a tree and stand on the stump to make a speech about conservation.

Now, what is the poem that this reminds me of? Oh yes...
"So nat'ralists observe, a flea
Hath smaller fleas that on him prey,
And these have smaller fleas that bite 'em,
And so proceed ad infinitum."

Thank you, Jonathan Swift...

UPDATE: although it may have been overtaken by Frankie Boyle on this week's Mock The Week, talking about Gordon Brown.
Because... every other time that I've seen Gordon Brown smiling it looks like he's trying to shit a sea-urchin."

Class...

UPDATE 2: once again, Frankie Boyle in response to the suggestion "things you won't hear in a superhero movie".
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Well, whatever it is, it's headed right for the World Trade Centre.

Bad taste but...

When it comes to conservation matters, what with people going hungry on account of biofuels and the economic gloom being exacerbated by so called 'green' taxes, this poem comes to mind, in a lateral sort of way that is.
