Silly Politics – Boris’ Eggy Feet

Do I really want to go forward with 2020, when I’ve just had the most bizarre carrot on a stick dangled in front of my senses? Who, in the UK, or for that matter, the rest of the world, be it of American or European ilk, would want to egg old Boris on, as he…

Silly-Savvy Article – Cats & Media Turds

What is it about cats? Why do the beasts have such a sense of entitlement that they take pleasure in decorating my lawn with their turds? And why do they line the turds up in a row, directly beneath my washing line? Do they do this deliberately with a view to staking a claim upon…

Silly Boris Romps to Power

Savvy Article – Boris & Donald

Dear Boris and Donald, Overlords. Overlords and outsiders. Oppressive order. Savvy! The stuff, Boris and Donald, of dystopian novels. Or is it?

Silly Article – Savvy Clown

A response to an article written by Bradley Jolly in ‘The Mirror’. What a fantastic idea to hire a clown as company for a redundancy meeting! Why give employers the satisfaction of believing themselves to be passing on bad news? A redundancy is, after all, an occasion to be celebrated. An opportunity. The chance for…
