Kim jung un and the battle for the Samoan Skies. And Goose liver.

The week began with the French closing down the Eiffel Tower and ended with Samoan Air charging fat people more to fly. Crushed in amongst it like a skinny European flying coach class to the South Pacific tropical paradise with an epidemic of obesity and an apparent obsession for palm oil and French fries...

We Take the Blame™ for people who talk and use mobile phones whilst at the cinema

Forget reality television being a mirror on society, it was never true and certainly never will be. It is a micro-cosom of the biggest mistakes that society has created, all together, in one place, being tools. No, if you want a real mirror on society then head to the cinema this weekend. You can...

The US Postal Service forgets New York and Uses the Las Vegan Statue of Liberty on, oh, lets say, 3 BILLION, stamps

Three billion first class stamps bearing the iconic gaze of the Statue of Liberty have been printed by the US Postal Service. Unfortunately there is one glaring problem; one searing piece of ineptitude that would have left a bitter taste in the ladys’ mouth and should leave most New Yorkers seething: It isn’t the...

People are rude; Politeness has evaporated. We take the blame.

People are rude. We all know that. Every day city dwellers are forced to put up with one incident after another of pure, unadulterated, wreck-less rudeness. It is time that something out there changed; it’s time that someone took a big hot poker and instilled some manners in the masses. If it has to...

What is Take The Blame?

Our ethos is simple, we are here to take the blame. Apparently we live in a blame culture; and in a blame culture there needs to be someone who you can turn to when there is nobody else who will shoulder your blame. Whatever the reason, whatever the occasion, we are there for you....

Valentine’s Day for single people

Today is Valentine’s Day. At which point, over half the population groan. Obviously the exact figures are impossible to deduce but it is widely believed that at any one point in time around 54% of the human species is single and, well, hoping that February 15th can’t come a day too soon. And what...

English officially becomes the most spoken language in the world. You had better learn it quickly.

As the most widely spoken language in the world – and yes, before the Chinese contingent jump on board heckling obscenities and crying like banshees that the jewel of the Oriental languages is more spoken, it is not -  it isn’t  half difficult to learn. Of the worlds 3000 (ish) documented languages, English is...

The Running of The Bulls in Pamplona – The Bulls take back what is rightfully theirs.

Lets hear it for the bulls shall we? This week in the usually sleepy Spanish town of Pamplona, the 9 day festival of San Fermin has erupted onto the cobbled streets. From the 6th July when pyrotechnics or, more traditionally, gunfire and cannon fire mark the start of this festival in the Navarre region,...

The Beegees Have sold 50 billion albums. We take the blame for this sordid musical taste.

The Beegees Have sold 50 billion albums. We take the blame for this sordid musical taste.

A not so interesting fact is that the Bee Gees have sold over 220 million records. Probably down right scary rather than interesting you would have to admit. That’s a lot of sales and equates to 1 in every 3 people you meet owning at least one album. Maybe Living Eyes from 1981 or...
