Another look at a current news-worthy item, inspired by a moribund fish.

I do think the pundits might have displayed a little more 'new-world-savvy' mind you. I mean, come on, they're in the public eye, their every move scrutinized and recorded. So to comment on something so sensitive, offending old-boilers and fit-hotties alike, was a bit naïve when you think about it; which they obviously didn't. Their stupidity is all the more baffling when you consider the fact that they both battled great handicaps to get where they are (or were) today, only to throw it all away with a few off the cuff remarks. For example, it is a little known fact that Richard Keys shares a symbiotic existence with two male caterpillars. "What the hell's that damned fish on about now?" I hear you cry (if there's anyone still there........ hello......hello.....) but it's true dear friend, it's true. Apparently the furry duo's part in this curious life triage is to aid Richard's vision, his perceptions of the world around him; though the task is not necessarily limited merely to what he sees. Sitting fat and bold above each of the presenter's beady little eyes, they deflect dust, crap, insults and examples of acceptable conduct. So much like eyebrows have they become that the portly fellas have even turned black; though their pigment change can probably be attributed to their close proximity to Richard's brain and the darkness therein. Still, even the indestructible qualities of Bruce Willis's dirty, white vest could not have deflected the shit storm poor Richard found himself in, so we shouldn't blame them too much.

    Awesome; digressive; intellectual; mental; rambling - I loved this!!

    Mr Kosy, take a bow - You seem to be the last bastion of male chauvinism.

    I applaud thee! (or. maybe,- I just missed the point completely?)

    whatever; this was a joy - from first word, to the last.
    Thank you, Verm. You are always an inspiration.

    Chauvinism, for me, is merely a conduit for Mr Funny to express himself (at least I HOPE he's funny. sometimes, when you've stared at this screen for so long you just don't know anymore).

    I'm probably one of the least sexist blokes you could meet. I just find the battle for equality (if it even exists anymore) too much of an hilarity platform.

    It's the Alf Garnet in me.
    Exceptional! I loved every line, sexpecially the very wonderful literary analysix of 'wanker.'

    Well done!
    kt, 'sexpecially', 'analysix'?

    Damn, I wish I'd thought of those. You are a dark horse.
    Mental? Probably.

    Genius? Definitely!

    Great work Rob. Extremely funny stuff.
    How did I miss this!? This beautifully-written masterpiece of studied silliness begins as a serious and considered ponder, and I was with you right up to the word 'caterpillar'. Then, I venture to submit, the 'E' fully kicked in, the herrings began morris-dancing and all hell is let loose. Scarily clever and funny. I must start reading The Daily Sport.Grin
    Savage, my friend, sometimes your comments are funnier than the work you review. Thank you very much Sinsei (I've spelled that wrong haven't I?) An appraisal like that from savage_pratchet makes my day.

    Oh, by the way Mr G, I think you got the first two lines of your comment mixed up. It should start, 'Mental? Definitely!' I didn't even know I'd written this until I woke up and the elves had left me a new pair of shoes atop my keyboard. Apparently they're branching out into amateur writing.
