That's very funny Tim.

The awful thing is, it's also probably not too far from the actuality. I used to read and laugh at Private Eye's "Views from the Internet Community" with users such as "Brokern Brittan" going on about "Bottler Brown" until I discovered that a majority of real life You Tube correspondents are exactly the same. Even some of your Comment is Free commenters aren't always much better.

Oh dear, I've come over all snooty.

At least no-one's banging on about Susan Boyle anymore.

Can you get Swine Flu off the internet?

Such is the petty one-upmanship of the SNP administration here in Edinburgh, that sections of the Scottish press can barely contain their delight at the fact that there were confirmed cases of swine flu in Scotland before there were any in England.

But have you looked at 90% of the books in WH Smith, Rog? Utter crap. Ditto telly. Music? Don't get me started. Any medium is a simmering vastness of putrid inanity, with a thin, fragile crust of good stuff holding it all together.

But Catherine Zeta Jones is going to play her, Billy, haven't you heard? With Eddie Izzard as Simon Cowell and Wilson/Stiller as Stavros Flatley.

No, Dick, that quite impossibluuurrrrrggghhhh....

Marsha: Will they have to slaughter thousands of bagpipes?
