  1. Why link to the grauniad and a boring picture? The Mail has a cartoon of a calf on a skateboard.

  2. File this under ‘Stuff people who work with cattle have known for centuries’

    But of course those people are stupid yokels (who probably vote for Trump and Brexit and are racist bigots to boot) so such knowledge is ignored until some Guardian reading university graduate is paid a tonne of someone else’s money to ‘discover’ it.

  3. I have a teenage son and he has plunged himself into living the Sorrows of Young Werther in the last six months. Not only do we get the whole” I wanna be alone “, thing, but I have to put up with remarks like ” Whats the point of X”, ” X is so boring and pointless ” ..and he has stupidest haircut I have ever seen ( a “Skin fade”….)

  4. …but I have to put up with remarks like ” Whats the point of X”, ” X is so boring and pointless ”…

    It is only out of pity for the helpless that I forego the obvious retort.

    I have a teenage son and he has plunged himself into living the Sorrows of Young Werther in the last six months. Not only do we get the whole” I wanna be alone “, thing, but I have to put up with remarks like ” Whats the point of X”, ” X is so boring and pointless ” ..and he has stupidest haircut I have ever seen ( a “Skin fade”….)

    That’s unfortunate; is it because of Brexit?

    (Sorry, Dennis)

  6. ..and he has stupidest haircut I have ever seen ( a “Skin fade”….)

    Out of curiosity at what Newms would consider a stupid haircut. I duckducked what a “skin fade” is.

    According to Wikipedia (my emphasis) :

    A skin fade is a type of fade hairstyle that is long on top and shaved at the sides. It is a popular haircut in the United Kingdom, and also in the city of Mirpur, in Pakistan. It may also be known as “Short Back & Sides”.

    So a standard haircut then…

    What would you prefer him have?
    A pudding bowl haircut?

  7. AFAIR a short back & sides doesn’t have the stark contrast between the shaved sides and the top that is the fashion these days. Of course Viv Stanshall had the right idea about hair as a statement. Listen to Rhinocratic Oaths.

  8. “What has mood to do with it? You fight when the necessity arises—no matter the mood! Mood’s a thing for cattle or making love or playing the baliset. It’s not for fighting.”

    -Frank Herbert’s Dune

    This is known in our past and our distant future.

  9. I’ve seen far more stupid haircuts. There’s one which requires male yooves to adopt something approximating bunny ears. Presumably they’re trying to show how tough they are by daring people to mock them.

  10. (Sorry, Dennis)

    No need to be. Fire away! I can always use a good laugh.

    The only thing holding me back is an aversion to nailing slow thinking, slow moving barnyard animals. It extends to cows, too.

  11. Oh, my old china, Dennis, yes it will. It’s cretinous. Not merely ridiculous. But actively cretinous.

    I’ve been meaning to ask, given your occasional idiomacies: are you actually a wog?

  12. @Jim

    Spot on. Another ‘bears shit in the woods’ study

    @Chernyy_Drakon

    Similar to USA ‘jar head’ then

    @Newmaia

    You’re son’s haircut: he is obviously a Tommy Robinson supporter

  13. Facepainter–Let’s hope your kid grows out of it and says something nice like” Call yourself my Father–you’re a treasonous cunt who needs hanging” –or words to that effect.

  14. I’ve been meaning to ask, given your occasional idiomacies: are you actually a wog?

    Lud, old thing, everyone’s a wog to someone.

  15. Oi, Dennis – leave us alone.

    Dennis can do many things. Weather, however, is not one of them.

    UK looks set for another head-on collision with Brussels as the two sides gear up for trade talks, after the European Parliament said any deal must be based on two areas already ruled out by Downing Street

    Brexit may be done, but the European Union served a reminder today that Britain is not yet free from its laws, demanding that it change transport levies or face proceedings in front of the European Court of Justice

  17. UK . . . well on its way to becoming the Unplugged Kingdom.

    Mandating electric cars while killing the electric utilities. Pure f’ing genius!

    10-4, Pcar. The geniuses at Downing Street are negotiating with Brussels. What could go wrong? What won’t be messed up?

    “K looks set for another head-on collision with Brussels as the two sides gear up for trade talks, after the European Parliament said any deal must be based on two areas already ruled out by Downing Street”

    If the PM et al were “negotiating,” they’d say, “Okay that’s it; we’re done. We’re out; no deal.”

    Which they could have said two years ago, as anyone with half a brain knows.

  18. Johnson has lost his fucking marbles in just sixty days.

    Car/gas heat bans to put us plebs back to the 18th century while he builds like Stalin-like self glory vanity projects like HSR2 and this fucking Irish Sea Bridge cockrot.

    Mansion taxes and pension raids and now–having beaten EUscum Article 13 –he is going to bring in this Ofcom shite. More of Treason May’s evil.

    Knew he was BluLab shite but this burst of fucking insanity is ludicrous. He has already lost what he gained once the impact of all this becomes clear.

    If he sells out Brexit as well then why not vote for ZaNu and bring everything down.

  19. I would think anyone with the slightest familiarity with animals would know that they get moody and nasty while going through puberty – and most stay that way after.

    My rabbits were a handful once they hit that age. All nice and sweet and BAM! they’re trying to kill each other.
