Ray Kroc. Founder of McDonald's (well sort of) and all-round charmer. I came across this quote in a book I've been reading.
"If my competitor were drowning I'd stick a hose in his mouth and turn on the water."
Yeah, nice one Ray.

So the BBC had 400 complaints.
I think Egon Ronay would have something to say to those people; probably 'fuck off'.
Honestly. Pop stars swearing. I think they (the complainers, not the pop starts of course) should be rounded up and sent to the Isle of Wight.

.. is trying to wind us up I think.
Some selected quotes..
"The only thing they (the English) have ever done for European agriculture is mad cow disease "
"One cannot trust people whose cuisine is so bad"
"After Finland, it is the country with the worst food"
"Mr Chirac replied that hamburgers were far preferable to British food."
Yes, well, maybe Jacques, our food would be better if your taxpayers were subsidising our farmers.

imagine a Bib Brother housemate becomes prime minister - or at least leader of the Tory party....you could make it happen!
Added by Paul 05 July 2005 13:27
Sorry to go on.
But.. I think Egon Ronay would have a few words to say about all this. And he did. In the Guardian..
Meanwhile Egon Ronay, the food critic, said: "A man full of bile is not fit to pronounce on food."
Life is sweet.
Now I'm not a food critic by any means; however, it seems to have been overlooked who Jacques was actually talking to - a Russian and a German.

Admittedly mostly in jest, but I have been suggesting recently that there is no such thing as male bisexuality. I hypothesised that any man claiming to be bisexual was, in fact, homosexual.
Well, it turns out that I was probably right.
I quote (from the Guardian)..
" A study from a Chicago university concludes that most men purporting to be bisexual are gay and the rest are more likely to be heterosexual. The 101 subjects were asked to watch erotic films as their arousal levels were monitored by a sensor."

"O nation of Islam and nation of Arabism: Rejoice for it is time to take revenge from the British Zionist Crusader Government in retaliation for the massacres Britain is committing in Iraq and Afghanistan."

If you can ignore the outrageously intrusive advertising, this is a nice short article about intelligent design.
The crux being that if we were intelligently designed why an earth do we have so many faults?
My favourite, not mentioned, is the fact that our eyes are 'inside out'. The nerves, if designed, would have gone straight out of the back of our eyes. Instead, the come out of the front of our retinas then tunnel back through to our brains.

.. is under fire again. It would help if he stuck to the truth I think. For all the good that he has done, he could comfortably drop the hyperbole.
Anyway, this time it's the Ethiopian woman that was paraded on stage at the Live 8 concert.
We were told that she was 20 minutes from death and was saved and is now prospering thanks to Live Aid.
And if this were true it would have been a great story. Alas, it was not true and if she'd been able to understand what was being said she might not have been too pleased I think.
To cut a long story short, she's been subsidised by the Canadian reporter that originally 'saved her' all those years ago.

Still very amusing. Especially the letters I think.
"I was being chased by a police dog last week, and made the mistake of trying to escape through a little tunnel, over a see-saw and through a hoop of fire. It finally caught me as I was weaving in and out of some sticks."

Right, I'm retiring from making posts to this site. I'm not getting any work done and it's bad for my health. I actually get palpitations I get so angry.
But I leave you with this brilliant piece of writing that just about sums up all I have to say about democracy and the need for all of us that believe in it to stand up for it, and to do so together, whatever the particular hue of our political beliefs.
I'm not a fan of Vinny Jones, but it really has been emotional.

Cycling's a good way to get around, no doubt.
Though I'm astonished at people's inability to assess risk. It's clearly more dangerous to cycle than it is to get the tube.
I wish the newspapers would run their front pages every day for a week showing the 10 people that die on our roads every day. Maybe then there would be more political will to do something about the 3,500 deaths on our roads every year.
Added by Paul 28 July 2005 13:14
Could this be the same David Thomas that wrote the cycling article? Probably. Prick.
In an article about Sven Goran Eriksson, he suggests 11 reasons why he should be sacked. I'm not sure why the odd number; surely 10 would have sufficed. In fact, given how utterly lame this article is, maybe 3 or 4 might have been more appropriate.
"2. We thought we'd stopped Vikings coming over here, stealing our money and sleeping with our women, roughly 900 years ago."
