A Little Silliness to Brighten Your Morning


HOW TO START EACH DAY WITH A POSITIVE OUTLOOK

1. Open a new file in your computer.
2. Name it 'Gordon Brown'.
3. Send it to the Recycle Bin.
4. Empty the Recycle Bin.
5. Your PC will ask you: 'Do you really want to get rid of 'Gordon Brown?'
6. Firmly Click 'Yes'.
7. Feel better ....?

Not if you have a Mac it won't! It'll just get rid of it straight out of the trash; saving a lot of time and effort.

Gordo's back from his hols.

Can you hear the attempts to res-start the "Good News" machine?

I hear these spluttering noises, then it dies - followed by 'Darling! - get some more news'.

It's rather like that quaint old practice of 'revving the bangor'.

By the way - watch out that creating a folder named 'Gordon Brown' does not trigger an otherwise undetected bug in Windows from wiping your hard disk.

This all in accordance with EC directive 07/341 'The harmonisation of the Jonah effect', as created in accordance with the fine-print details in the Lisbon Treaty.

Bad Idea Ian. Deleting a folder in the Recycle bin does not remove it from the hard drive. If you have been doing this every morning then I am sorry to inform you that your computer is now full of invisible Gordon Browns, that can be easily restored.

I don't want Gordon Brown to be recycled though. Perhaps David Miliband could be consigned at the same time!

Why no comments allowed on your later American Video blogpost?

I wanted to say something positive that I hope one on or two right minded Americans and Brits will read.

Before printing it, open 'Printer Settings' and greatly reduce 'Dither'.

yMmm. Am sitting on a balcony overlooking Lake Como and am reading Bower's book on Brown.

It's just not funny.

The man's a malformed monster.

So jealous of anon at 4.01 pm - the lake Como bit.

Google "Don`t laugh at Spurs" and it says ...
"Do you mean -laugh at Spurs "

Well it did they have just changed it

Here's a better one. Next time you need to take a dump, call it "Gordon". Then once you've finished your er 'movement' you can flush Gordon down the pan.

Even better!!!

If you now go to the Number 10 website and look at the cabinet page you now get a 404 Page No Longer Available Error.


So who is now running the Government? Has the reshuffle started?
