I have a desire to make a Latin version of Peppa Pig, called Pepperus Pigus (possibly Pepperus Porcus, but I don't think this sounds as good).
We could then have a Peppa pig/Life of Brian crossover:
People called the Pig they go the house?
I assume in the wake of the UK riots someone somewhere has done a joke about apple launching a blackberry messenger competitor, to be called the iPredictariot.
However, I cannot find anyone having done so.
Does anyone want a fairly elderly Tomtom satnav?
It has UK and Europe maps
It does occasionally lose track of were you are, and the maps are a bit old, but it basically works ok.
It is anyone's for the cost of getting it to them. Pickup preferred.
Channel 4 news just really annoyed me with a piece on Boots - paying little tax on a large operating profit.
But they paid lots of interest, and deducted this for tax. Now in this case the interest is a cost of the acquisition, which I am less sympathetic with. But most interest is a legitimate business expense - you needed money to make something, you borrowed it, the cost reduces your profits (but notably increases someone else's - the lenders). This it seems to me is a legitimate tax deductible expense, in the same way that rent is a deductible expense.
The whole article seemed to me to show a lamentable lack of business knowledge. It makes me ashamed to call myself left wing to see such ignorant comment calling itself reporting.
I find such obvious bias undermines everything it has to say.
And then they followed it up with a bit on Puma, who, very commendably, started to publish an environmental impact assessment of the whole supply chain. C4's response - isn't your whole business damaging the environment by encouraging consumerism?
I find it hard to counter the right's argument of bias in the broadcast media with this to defend. Leave such blatant bias for Fox news - C4 news should be above this!
Daniel is developing a line is surreal jokes:
When is a man upside down and not upside down? When his house is upside down
When is a mirror not a mirror? When it is a sideways house
When does a foot have 5 toes and 2 toes? When 3 fall off in the bath.
I think he has the structure and the idea it has to be unexpected/wacky, but not the core of the concept...
