Friday Bits

It's P.O.E.T.S day: Push Off Early, Tomorrow's Saturday.

As usual there is a helping of odd and fun stuff from BBC's Oddbox. This week including a swiss festival of amphibious cars, a moo-ing contest from the USA and a game of Farmer's Golf.

Newsbiscuit has kept me royally entertained with gems such as a community in shock when a child is told off being naughty; an academic rashly claiming that Jordan (Katie Price) doesn't write her own books; and sadness that Robin Hood has decided to resign.

In the blogshpere, my favourite entry of the week goes to the Vegetable Assassin for starting WW3 between the USA and Canada. Let the fireworks begin.

For writers there were some interesting posts, such as memorable first lines, and what it's like to live with a writer.

Of course dear old Auntie Beeb (BBC) has come up with the goods on pleasant and peculiar stories. Jersey Shore is being paid for its actors not to wear a fashion house's clothes, whilst a cow needed rescuing after it got it's head stuck in a ladder. Altogether now, SILLY COW!

Have a great weekend.

I love that A&F are birthing a cow over Jersey Shore wearing their clothing. That's sort of like whatever company makes tiny rubber clothing for hookers saying they don't want Jordan wearing their garments. :)

To be fair to the Jersey Shore peeps though, they only HALF wear the clothes since their orange abs must be on show at all times.

Veg: Never seen Jersey Shore, but some of the cast look as though they have more silicon than flesh. And the women are just as bad.

"...starting WW3 between the USA and Canada". Haha.
I would like to read about this please. Sounds fun.
