07:20 pm - Natural speckles
Most fatuous and idiotic newspaper story this year? Y/Y

The Telegraph: Someone has found a jellybean that looks a bit like Kate Middleton.
Richard Cullen, Joint Managing Director for The Jelly Bean Factory in Dublin, who is yet to see the bean said: "This sounds truly incredible, I would have to see the bean myself to believe it. All of our beans are handmade and this looks like one of our red speckled Mango beans, the natural speckles are unique to each and every jelly bean due to the handmade process."

Seriously - have you seen a more idiotic piece of rubbish passed off as news? I am delighted.

Oh here's a nice bit of completely unrelated video to add a bit of content to this post: Australian schookids react to a lifesize puppet T Rex. Much squealing.

The Telegraph seems to be striving to lend new meaning to the word 'broadsheet'.

They make quite decent firelighters, I find.

A friend of mine has been posting all sorts of things on Facebook poking fun at the royal wedding just to wind up a Royalist, right-wing friend of his (and it's working, he got called 'mean-spirited' the other day). Today he posted a pic of the Kate jellybean with his friend's face on it. I thought that was rather good.

Anyway. The dinosaur video is brilliant!

OMG what a gift to him. I didn't realise everyone had seen this story, but my kids have told me it's all over the place.

I hadn't seen it 'til you posted it, so I claim "last to know."

Ahahaha, I'd publicise it too to make money out of it if I found something like that in my jellybeans. People will buy anything (like huge boulders that trash people's houses in earthquakes).

Yes, I don't blame the guy for making a few quid. But what's that about a boulder? People have been selling them in NZ?

Yes, Rocky the Boulder! The comments (scroll down) are even funnier than the listing. I posted about him here. Apparently they're selling a book of the comments for $10 for charity. :-)
