Well, now that the neato competition has almost completely overshadowed any attempt at
amusing spoof news articles (memo to self - check registration status of Neat-o-biscuit.com), the neato has a high profile indeed amongst those of us hardy bunch that remain in the post-haroldian comedic wilderness.
I therefore feel some pressure to mark this passing of the baton as a formal process rich in pageantry and new-tradition-in-the-making.
Who knew that one neato could link to so many varied topics? We've had :
Pocahontas, dogging, jelly, prude, badgers, toast, Heston Blumenthal, homophobes, muslims, parachutes and Somerset.
Now THAT's a news story! Look out for the Daily Mail exclusive just as soon as I've made it up.
Once again Arthur has been... prolific... and wins the award for abundance.
Well done. I shall henceforth refer to you as Fecund Arthur.
(Arthur, my favourite of your submissions was this one :
Some notable favourites are :
Uproar over revised English county boundaries : Now Somerset square
Trendy set "square" says even trendier retro set
Mandelbrot set square up against Euclidians in mathematician’s fight club
But this week's winner is the very silly :
'Fears grow as search for missing set square becomes "protractored" '
So well done to M Cholet, and give my regards to your lovely wife.
Over to you for a new topic.
