One Post Per Year Is My Quota

I got a strange and unexpected request a day or so ago. It was that I resurrect the hideous beast known as WHR once more for the purpose of creating one last masterpiece. The person; the one person who ever seemed to visit this page, the request: 

"You could always pap up a drawing of me! with a seagull on my head whilst I'm on the back of a fox"

Complex but Elegant., genius yet silly. How could I refuse? So I spent the next 24 hours or so slaving away over a sketch pad full of drawings of foxes and pigeons (which is either me remembering the request wrong or artistic licence, a question for the ages) and eventually not ten minutes prior to this post produced my finest work.

The fox is either whistling or howling I'm not sure which and of cause the pigeon looks disinterested because it is used to flying and eating chips off of the floor. 

Yes Okay I did a slightly less lazy version, it unfortunately doesn't look a great deal better as I made the fantastic mistake of spilling coffee all over my desk and trashing my keyboard and mouse. So without further padding to make it look like an article rather than something that should have been said over twitter I present "Captain Pigeon eats chips while riding atop a Lady riding side-saddle on a grumpy fox (as the fox dislikes the Pigeons political views)" I considered a longer more descriptive title but decided not to be an arse.

Now to ignore this blog for another year. See you autumn/winter 2013.

Some things should stay dead

I decided to give Google+ a go late last night out of boredom. While playing around with my settings I am reminded much to my horror that I once wrote on a blog called Wrist-huggers Refuge.

After a bit of time the one thing I had actually enjoyed doing on this new social site was browse a gallery of all the little drawings I had spent probably about 10 minutes on total over a 2 year period. Unfortunately all this fell apart when I realised the blog and its pretty pictures was linked to an email address that wouldn't work with the application on my android phone.

I set about changing the blog over to a different account but don't seem to have recovered my photo album yet which is just awful. It just does not feel the same posting without the history loitering about somewhere.

Still I soldiered on and created a new profile with which to post with and decided a new profile doodle would be appropriate as well and here is a nice print out and keep version of it (because people want that sort of thing ... maybe):

Also I may have accidentally uploaded some slightly edited pictures of a person I know. Everyone makes mistakes, for example me posting to this site after a break spanning millennia.

Smack Ladle

While I realise this is absolutely nothing like how things actually work, I couldn't help thinking today whether anyone out there deals heroin by the spoon. Example if I was a bit tight on cash but feeling a bit itchy I could go for a tea spoon of smack. If I had had a particularly good day claiming to need a cup of tea at the bus station I might treat myself to a table or soup spoons worth.

Of cause assuming your a reasonably talented thief or people just don't care that your ripping off a charity (Not at all a dig to the less reputable volunteers I may or may not work with) you could always indulge yourself with the godlike smack ladle.

I'm sure you could carry on into small buckets leading up to JCB attachments but that would just be silly.

Ps: Coming soon from WHR the place that brought you the Bee-bra, Hammer Heels and Smack ladle: Penis topper the daft way of dealing with male leakage. (insert obligatory comment about lack of updates here along with an empty promise to update more).

Mork and...

Mindy the name of the assistant manager taking over at the place I sort of work at (not really but its similar enough to that, that I've nicknamed her Mindy). To say she's slow is something of an understatement. To say that she laughs at colours and her ears wiggle when she pulls a gummy smile is perhaps closer.

Anyway I was looking for a picture of Sloth of the Goonies to put on my phone to compare the two too see if they might be related/identical. I found one, this one infact:

Then I thought to myself "You know what would make this job easier?", "No what?" I said... "Putting a ponytail on him so you don't have to imagine hair!"I replied to myself, to which I excitedly responded "Wow great idea, lets do that!"

So after recovering from that confusing conversation that's exactly what I did:

After putting that on my phone for later enjoyment I thought "You know what, that picture could be used as a poor excuse to post on that blog thing you have" So I wrote a quick explanation of what I had done and why and am about to press the publish button after making up some vaguely relevant tags.

Yet another comparison

I'm still alive, just busy sadly. I was just watching a repeat of Russell Howard's Good News on BBC3 as I am sad and lonely and couldn't help but notice the similarity between Boris Johnson and Rocky Horror of Rocky Horror. I found a little clip of the bit I'm on about, can't be bothered to embed because it takes far to much effort so here.

Distracting Potatos

I've been noticing recently how easy it is to distract people from their train of thought by asking them if they like Potato's. There is so many different things that you can do with a potato that asking the question 'Do you like potatos?' will get a longer answer than if you asked about a slightly less versatile veg.

Completely unnecessary examples:

John Humphrys: Do you like Carrots?
Me: Yeah kinda

John Humphrys: Do you like Peas?

Me: Well yeah, except garden peas and mushy peas

John Humphrys: Do you like Potato's?

Me: Most types yes, baked potato's, normal-y potato's, wedges and stuff rock, I think that chips are morally wrong however, even French fries, well especially fries, I suppose steak chips are OK on occasion but lets be honest, chips wouldn't get my vote in the next general election... Just think if the opposition was a baked potato as well, not a chance, don't you think Gordon Brown kind of looks like a potato?

John Humphrys: I'm going to have to stop you there you scored 2 out of a possible 3, Yes was the answer you missed on potato's.

Anyway the point is, catch people of guard by asking them for their vital vegetable opinions. It's a good way of making them forget what they were talking about. Potato's especially if you need some real time to think.

Guess that tune ... 2010

Just like the last time I played this game, give yourself a smug look for guessing the artist and track title.

Only its a new year, I guess that should change something. Make a new years resolution not to give yourself smug looks for getting something right on the internet then break it by knowing this picture! Marvellous.

Oh I was hibernating back home with my parents during December as an excuse for wondering off (All that twitter activity was an imposter, honest).

Oh 2 image name kind of gives away the answer.
