Entertainment stuff from the week 30/9 - 6/10/13

Hi, haters...?

The Daily Maul has behaved utterly uncharacteristically, recently, by laying in to someone!

Apparently, the current Labour Party leader's dad was a socialist... and a foreigner [Dun-dun-durrrr]

This, according to the Daily Fail, means he "HATED BRITAIN"

If you'd like to read a longer-than-i-was-hoping-for explanation of the situation, go here. Otherwise, go straight on to...

There's a new campaign in Oz, to encourage people to look after their backs (literally, i mean), and Stefan Sojka's done a song for it :-D

'Mind Your Back - Single Version'

Remember - you won't have to get your back seen to, by either a chiro-quack-tor or a real doctor who actually knows what they're doing - if you don't have the accident in the first place!

"So mind your back,
One stupid moment and your spine could crack,
And you may never get the feeling back,
And your limbs are going to go real slack,
You can wind up in a wheelchair, yeah yeah,
So be aware, and take care,
And mind your back"


Ah, Newsthump...

------------------------------------------------------ of the weeks

Word of The Week: vituperation -- bitter and abusive language

Etymology Of The Week: livid -- meaning 'a bluish leaden colour' - the colour people might go when they're furiously angry

Quote Of The Week: "you don't know you're wearing a leash if you sit by the peg all day" - Michael Parenti

Fact Of The Week: Weddell Seals have the largest proportional brain size at birth of any known mammal. This is because, like zebras and wildebeest on the plains, they are born into hostile environments and must quickly learn self-sufficiency
