Post #1000: a greeting

Well, here we are: 1,000 posts since the inception of The Devil's Kitchen! Who would have thought that writing so much, so offensively, would be so easy? Luckily, the Labour government have never left me short of things to rant about, and for that I have to thank 'em.

So, as a special treat for you all, here's a chance to hear me—speaking in my customary cut-glass tones—doing exactly that (MP3: 340KB—not suitable for work. Inevitably). You haven't lived till you've heard a posh bastard saying "bunch of cunts"...

I have to confess that I wouldn't have imagined that you sounded like that.

Keep up the good work. I hope that you manage at least 1000 more.

What a nice voice you have. I'm afraid you've buggered up your chances of winning any Best Scottish Blog type awards, though.

Thank you, Katy. I'm Scottish enough to play for their rugby team but, not, alas, to sound it...

From someone else who could, if he had anything approaching talent, play for Scotland (and England and Wales); I say, nicely put Sir.

Oh congrats I suppose - maybe in the next 1000 we'll find common ground. It's "bastard" that I find particularly hard as a posh anglo-scot. And I'm not sure that "valete" was ever pronounced like that at my prep school...........

I really must stop reading your posts to myself in a Scottish accent now.

Neil Harding said...

I got to admit these Eton types know how to polish an accent, I wonder what you lot would make of my Brummie tones?

Katy Newton said...

... and obviously I should stop reading Neil with a Yorkshire accent.

Your humble Devil was thoroughly amused by Neil Ferguson's fall from grace, and is very pleased to have found the time to outline Fergus...
