Mile High Jockey Barbecued?

The sandwich-board headlines of the Evening Herald often give good value, and can conjure some unlikely images. Yesterday’s Jockey Carberry Held Over Fire On Plane was one such example.

Innocence and Flamboyance

No-one has ever taken me aside and explained to me the intricacies of journalistic euphemism, but does ‘flamboyant‘, when used in the description of a newsworthy private individual, normally mean homosexual?

The Dreaded Meme

I see that Colm Bracken has clipped me with that meme thing.

– Search your blog archive- Find your 23rd post- Find the fifth sentence – this is apparently meant to say something about you.- Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions- Tag five people to do the same.

Well, my 23rd post doesn’t have five sentences, so I took the 24th instead. The fifth sentence reads thus:

The Currant Bun spoke with Scotland Yard’s ‘top anti-terror cop Peter Clarke’.

There you go, I’m a Sun-reading Mockney.

Like Gerry, I’m going to disobey the last instruction.
