Longrider points out the stupidity of censoring certain words like Au, Ag, copper-tin-zinc-amalgam, that big place on the Thames, the number between 2011 and 2013, and more. I will be taking the utter piss out of all of those bans for the foreseeable future, including the ban on linked rings of any number between 4 and 6.
When did corporations decide they could write laws on the fly and empower pseudoplods to collect fines? Oh, some time ago actually. Parliament has been as effective as an ashtray on a motorbike for at least a couple of decades now. The just do what they are told. This new lot have, collectively, less spine than a jellyfish.
Ah, those commenters are funny though. “When did we start banning words? When did we start deciding what we can and cannot say?” Someone, I fear, has not been paying attention. Banning words has been happening for a long time, did you not think it would ever be extended? Do you still believe the slippery slope is a myth?
The laugh of the day is MacDonalds. They claim to have invented chips and have banned everyone British from selling chips because chips are the invention of the MacD.
Fuck you with a greasy chip, as they often say in Glasgae. But then, there is amusement coming.
Maccy D has paid pots of money to be the Sole Chipper for the Corporate Idiot Bastards Sports Day and to be hailed as the American inventor of chips.
Ah, but Corporate Idiot Bastards are not the only ones gibbering in the leprous ear of government. The Puritans are gibbering too, and one of the things they gibber of is fat.
Another is meat.
Oh dear, imaginary chip inventors. You are soon to be hit with the plain packaging and hideous warning label of the Tobacco Template. Think I’m exaggerating? Okay, think that if you like, that’s fine with me, I don’t care at all.
When it happens, you will turn to the people and say ‘Hey, this isn’t fair’. You’ll be right.
But the people will remember how you stopped them buying sausage and chips, egg bacon and chips, black pudding fried bread and chips, spam spam spam baked beans spam spam sausage spam egg spam spam and chips, and they will whisper ‘Yes, you bastard. Yes it is’.
Oily mimpic sponsors, you have all your guns at your own heads. I would encourage you all to pull those triggers but I see you already have.
As for me, I will never buy anything from an Olympic-sponsoring company ever again. It won’t be hard, none of them sell anything essential or even unique.
Oh, and every one of them supports this.
Think of that when you see the Au round badges on ribbons handed out at that place on the Thames in the year between 2011 and 2013 under a logo consisting of not four, not six, but any number in between of linked figures constructed through the mathematical extrapolation of pi.
Sport? This twatfest now has as much to do with sport as the BMA has to do with health. It is all about profit and control.
And still some people think it’s worth paying for.
