SWAP SHOP

This morning we had to take ten year old Troy Junior into the local hospital for an appointment in the Paediatric Department. We found some empty seats in the waiting area among the hoard of parents/babies/children and settled down, me reading my Daily Telegraph business section (as you do) and Troy Junior and his mother idly looking around. Troy Junior's eyes must have then caught sight of a notice pinned to a door and he asked "Why would parents want to change their babies?". The notice read "Parents wishing to change their babies should ask a member of staff". We explained that it wasn't actually the 'Swap Shop' that he imagined it to be.

So sweet. You can understand why he'd be worried.

!! Bless his little cotton socks. (socks getting bigger, so not so much of the 'little') Love that sort of misunderstanding...
Youngest constantly doing it. D'you know, that is the SHORTEST post you have ever written. Do you realise that I made a vast cup of tea to settle down in front of said post, and have hardly started?! xxxx

Debs - we couldn't change Troy junior now though - he is out of warranty.

LWM - short, but better than nothing eh?

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should boycott American women

http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

Well, I was going to comment on your original blog post, but after reading Anon’s posting and your reply, whatever I was going to say has completely gone out of my head.
I've decided that much as Tom Lehrer said that satire was dead once Kissinger had received the Nobel peace prize, ironic blog posting is now irrelevant.
