Life being what it is these days, I wasn't too surprised to learn there's an app for your smartphone called OK Kosher Food Guide. Having been developed by The Orthodox Union, I guess it doesn't work between sunset on Friday night and sunset on Saturday night.
But I was surprised to read there are now 900,000 webcam performers on the net, prepared to give you a personal porn show. I wonder who counted them. And how long it took.
I see that one of the British cyclists who won gold medals in the recent world championships in London has the surname Varnish. Which wouldn't be a bad attribute for that sport.
Here's a song which the black community of America favoured after the epoch-changing fight I mentioned last night. It's sung to the tune of Amazing Grace, if you want to give it a go.
Amaze an' Grace, how sweet it sounds,
Jack Johnson knocked Jim Jeffries down.
Jim Jeffries jumped up an' hit Jack on the chin,
An' then Jack knocked him down again.
The Yankees hold the play,
The white man pulls the trigger;
But it makes no difference what the white man says,
The world champion's still a nigger.
So, the Greeks will get their 123 or 223 billion euros, depending on whether you read The Times or The Guardian. And everything's gonna be alright. At least for a couple of weeks. Meanwhile, you might want to ponder which euro notes you'll keep and which you'll get shut of. Check the letter in front of the serial numbers:-
X - Germany
N - Austria
P - Holland
L - Finland
Z - Belgium (still without a government but doing fine)
F - Malta
G - Cyprus
M - Portugal
S - Italy
T - Ireland
Y - Greece
There's been some very rough treatment of protesting students by the Valencian police. The relevant minister in Madrid has admitted this, for which he was accused of cowardice and having a 'poor moral attitude' by the secretary general of the Unified Police Trade Union. Who added that the "confrontational atmosphere with the police is down to a few anti-establishment radicals, skinheads or modern redskins". Modern redskins. What the hell are they? And is this a racist comment?
