What the Internet can do to you - an addict in January and July 2012
One of the problems we have at the Telegraph is an addiction to the Internet. As can be seen from the pictures above, in the space of a few months it can turn a glamorous young woman into a raddled old harridan whose natural home would be the Chamber of Horrors at Madame Tussaud's. Luckily, I have found a solution: by writing dozens of tedious blogs about addiction I have managed to cut the readership of my own blog down to a handful of die-hards. A few more well-placed insults should soon get rid of them as well.
Mgr Ban O'ffee
Those who think that Paul Inwood's contribution to the musical and liturgical life of the Portsmouth diocese should be classed with Jack the Ripper's contribution to the night life of London are pleased that an arch-traditionalist, Monsignor Ban O'ffee, has been appointed as the new bishop. Mgr O'ffee is expected to ban all celebrations of the Mass in English, which he regards as a barbarous modern tongue.
Paul Inwood's own songs, of which the most famous are those deeply spiritual works:
The God on the bus goes round and round, all day long,
Pontius Pilate sat on a wall, Pontius Pilate had a great fall, and
Bread-of-life Bread-of-life Jesus, man, bake me some bread as fast as You can,
will certainly not be wasted, as they will be recycled as episcopal toilet-paper.
Please buy this book, so that I can feed my addiction to CDs
Damian Thompson (under the pseudonym Sophie McKenzie) has written The Fix, a thrilling crime story. A stranger offers Damian cash to fix a football match. Will he do the right thing? This is a gripping football thriller, particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic teen readers (e.g. people who post on his blog under pseudonyms such as "phil_evans," "Markus River" and "Sanctimony").
