Benedictgate & Blood on My Hands

Gave blood again yesterday. They managed to find a vein without too much digging around (which is unusual for me) and I was finished in half the time it normally takes. They must have struck a gusher. I enquired about bone marrow donation but apparently I’m far too old – the cut-off being 50. Probably just as well as it’s rather painful.

It’s strange, but I don’t feel 55 – and I don’t behave like my father did when he was 55. He seemed terribly sensible and – well, old, but I suppose my children think I’m terribly sensible and old (however immature Hay thinks I actually am).

Is David Blane the son of God, or would your vote go to David Copperfield?

Ref the paypal scandal; one highly-placed source in the Vatican talking of the Benedictgate Condom affair said: “This could have very severe repercussions and is embarrassing for the British government - one has to question whether the action taken is enough.” Another Vatican source mentioned ‘dark forces’ at work in British Foreign Office.

I guess having a go at the pope is infinitely more reprehensible in the People’s Democratic Republic of Vatican than covering up paedophilia of epidemic proportions.

Oh please let this hideous orc and his vile entourage come to the UK!


  1. Yves, I don't think that I have ever seen David Copperfield and therefore I have no reason to suspect him of being the son of god (the same reasoning brings me to the same conclusions about Jesus) I once saw David Blane on the telly and he did perform what looked like miracles so I suppose he gets the vote. All the best, Humphrey

  2. David Blaine is too boring to be the son of God, surely the son of the omnipotent creator of the universe wouldn't talk like Eeyore, however that Derren Brown looks a bit too clever for his own good if you ask me.

    Steve: One wonders if Jesus had a speech impediment.

  4. At least the British Foreign Office are still great comedy writers. There is hope after all.
