stuff that suddenly becomes overwhelmingly popular

You know what I mean.....it might be good or bad, but all of a sudden you can't go anywhere without seeing some reference to it.

Currently hating:

****ing Prosecco - everything is ****ing Prosecco.....Facebook....I'm off out for a cheeky Prosecco. Eff off you witless crowdfollowing bints. You weren't touching this **** for years, but now you can't spend a day without mentioning it.

****ing GIN - craft gin.....gin cocktails.....EFF OFF. Once upon a time it was a well known sour tasting depressant, now it's ****ing touted on every street corner.

****ing TOMAHAWK STEAKS - EFF RIGHT OFF. I'm fed up with ********s trying to outsteak each other. Absolute knob-rotting toss.

This pile of ****e climbs on top of:

****ing Mrs Brown's Boys - absolute kakwa*k

Gin is marketing genius:

Distilleries wanting to make proper booze
like whisky have to wait years to mature
their alcoholic beverages.

Gin can be bottled and shipped the day
it's made.


Plan to see more of this as the UK
scrabbles to keep its head above water.


Consume For Britain!


Keep Strong and Stable.

Always stay behind the wave. I've (relatively) recently started loving cocktails, just after everyone else has got bored of them.

Today it is quinoia, where once it was gnocchi, and before that prawn cocktails.

And for the home, one must have hard floorboards stuck on top of er, hard floorboards. Decking, louvre windows, and lava lamps are so passé.

On the road, SUV and 4WD, where once the mere mention of hatchback excited, or walnut veneer glued on metal dashboards impressed.

In a café, no-one says: "Please may I have a coffee with skimmed milk," it's mandatory to say: "Can I get a skinny latté."

"Can I get?" is also an annoying new Americanism.

The populace are a fickle bunch.

Soda Stream went out in the 80s

Blue Nun went out in the 70s (was it ever in?)

Mix the two together however and you've got a new breed of champagne wannabes.

Pokémon GO was getting on my **** for a while with all and sundry asking me if I was playing. The response I normally gave was no. I went on to tell them I was ****ing 43 years old and suggested they should grow the **** up. Thankfully that craze is beyond us now and my friends have returned.

I reckon sheep accuse each other of being like humans.

I'm just about to put some old ripped jeans of mine on a well known auction site.

On the cafe theme, I don't drink much coffee but often like it black after dinner, so you order (as it says on most menus) an Americano instead of a cup of black coffee and they always ask if you want milk with that. No, I'd have said a flat white or just could I have a white coffee also however it is described on said menu.

Yep, isn't it a battle to get a coffee?

I used to drink black coffee asking for hot milk on the side. "Is that an Americano?"

If that's what a black coffee is yes, why do they need to ask?

I now drink cappuccino, no sprinkles of chocolate, marshmallows or toffee bits thank you.

"Do you want cookie crumbles sir?"

What do you think after what I've just said? And can I have a cup of coffee rather than a cup of froth?
