Neville Southall Adult Baby Twitter Takeover. Take those words; taste them; roll them around your mouth and revel in their juicy savour. So rich! So DENSE!  I'm choosing to focus on the ridiculous rather than the awful in the intro this week, seeing as the past couple have been pretty frothy with fear and rage and seeing also as it's my girlfr...

Can we all agree that whilst Boris Johnson may himself not be a racist he's spent this week behaving in a manner designed explicitly to appeal to racists and that that's not really that much better? Good! Now we've got that cleared up, let's crack on with the REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF. Given that Summer is now over (bet you wish you hadn't complained ...

Wife-beating, justice-perverting peddler of race-hate Stephen Yaxley-Lennon is out on bail! HUZZAH FOR FREE SPEECH! I am exercising mine right now in order to call all his fans and supporters intellectually moribund racists at worst, or credulous idiots being puppeteered by actual proper fascists at best! Isn't free speech great! BUT! None of you c...

HOT! SWEATY! DAMP! MOIST! SUPPURATING! ROTTEN! FETID! SEETHING! TURGID! All of the above - and frankly there would me more were I not, as ever, so desperately pressed for time - can be used to describe the sensation in our great capital this week as we edged ever closer to a full-on, heat-induced brainmelt.  Even worse, you've now clicked on t...

 I...I don't know  whats  going on. Do you? Can you tell me? Can you explain? Honestly, I seem to have totally lost the run of things this week, and am utterly confused as who to believe and what to think about  anything .  Do I believe Donald? Do I believe Vlad? Do I believe T'reese, or peaky-looking Jacob, or 'funny' Bori...

Oh Christ. What a MESS.  Look, let's focus on the positives - the kids got rescued!  What else? Eh? Oh.  Sorry everyone, I have literally NOTHING else today - it's all just TOO MUCH (and I have a lunch to get to, then theatre with a godchild, and then dinner with my girlfriend and then Fat Bob's birthday tomorrow and then, doubtless,...

Pride! Pride in our country! Pride in Gareth's Plucky Young Lions! Pride in the idea of IT coming home (what is 'it'? Have you considered the idea that maybe the 'it' whose return you're all so joyously anticipating is, I don't know, a horrific monster borne out of irradiated Chernobyl isotopes, temporarily disguised as 'football'? HAVE YOU? I don'...

Is it coming home? Is it staying away? Are you all being ironic? CAN ANY OF YOU EVEN TELL ANY MORE? That's right, the nation is once more labouring under a heavy dose of WORLD CUP FEVER and all of that pleasant, self-effacing, self-awareness has vanished and in its place is the purple, throbbing, swelling spectre of lovely, lovely nationalism and j...

Hi! How are you! Still alive? GREAT! It seems a bit redundant to kick this off with some sort of tired scream about how everything is in fact terrible and frightening, so I shan't. Instead, let's focus on the good and happy stuff - the sun is shining! It's Friday! Your team may or may not still be in the football! Maybe your fantasy team is doing w...

Another BIG step towards full dystopia this week - you don't need me to list all the reasons, but my favourite "Christ, we really  are  living in a poorly-crafted miserable future novel from the mid-1990s" moment came with this Twitter thread which, amidst all the furore over Don'n'Kim, really is worth reading . Otherwise though it's been...

HAHAHA BORIS! HAHAHAHA DAVID! HAHAHAHA ISN'T IT FUNNY! ALL THIS INCOMPETENCE AND INFIGHTING AND BACKSTABBING AND MACHINATING AND No, it's not, is it, really? It's boring and tedious and childish. WHY IS EVERYONE - AND I MEAN SEEMINGLY EVERYONE, GLOBALLY - WHO PURSUES POLITICAL OFFICE SUCH A COMPLETE FCUKING CNUT? I mean, it's a rhetorical question ...

Even by the standards of 2018, this has been an absolute ROLLERCOASTER of a week. A Government falls in Spain, one stumbles and maybe gets back on its feet in Italy (but if it makes it to Christmas I will personally be AMAZED), Don met Kim, a Ukrainian journalist came back from the dead, and we all continued to gawp, amazed, through our magical gla...

Insert your own tedious joke about GDPR here (don't worry, there are a few of my own buried in the prose, I wouldn't want you to feel left out, after all).  SO HERE WE ARE AGAIN! HI EVERYONE! Another week of school shootings and failed diplomacy and a country that continues to lurch, wetly towards an uncertain and threatening future! We don't ...

I tell you, I've been so EXCITED this week - so flapping, so beside myself, so  unnecessary! -  that I've barely been able to concentrate enough to cobble together the few hundred links needed (noone needs them, but let me lie to myself one last time) to make Curios happen. It was TOUCH AND GO, I tell you.  I imagine you're really ex...

I went to the seaside last weekend. It was LOVELY, apart from the racist graffiti (residents of Broadstairs - you're right, it  is  OK to be white, and literally NOONE is attempting to tell you otherwise! I promise! Also, looking around, I'm not 100% convinced that it's you who need to worry about being unwelcome) and the seemingly endles...

HELLO AGAIN EVERYONE! After a brief hiatus born of my having the selfish temerity to step away from the web for a long weekend - did you take care of it? is it  ok ? I worry, you know - Web Curios is back, ready to almost immediately clock off again as we look forward to celebrating the May Bank Holiday in inimitable British style.  So, a...

Another week, another startling demonstration from everyone in charge of everything that they are dreadful idiots. WHY IS EVERYONE IN CHARGE OF EVERYTHING SUCH A DREADFUL IDIOT?!?!? Sadly you’re going to have to wait for an answer to that question, as I have NO TIME - I need to pack bags and GET MOVING if I’m ever going to make this pla...

HELLO WE ARE BACK DID YOU MISS US WE MISSED YOU HELLO HELLO HELLO! Well, it's great to be back in the saddle. One more week and I'd have done a right Scanners, so your reading this is effectively an act of mercy; rest assured, I am VERY VERY GRATEFUL. So while we were away Imperica has undergone a bit of a refresh - it will have MORE STUFF on it, b...

So, look, I have some troubling news. You may want to sit down. Web Curios is taking a small break. 

CALM YOURSELVES! STOP RENDING AT YOUR CLOTHES AND SKIN! STOP THE FLAGELLATIONS AND LET THE KEENING CEASE!

Compose yourselves, all of you, IT'S ONLY TEMPORARY. Paul, my editor here at Imperica, is going to have a bit of a rummage around the back end of the site over the next couple of weeks and do some other stuff to (read about it here); he'd be interested in hearing from you if you have any exciting ideas about what to do with the place and how to help out. 

Whilst this is going on, I'm going to be catching up on my Friday sleep and possibly doing things like my laundry, or getting a haircut. It's going to be thrilling. Anyway, what this means is that Web Curios will be back in THREE WEEKS TIME - that is, on Friday 6 April. Until then, though, you will have to pass the time without it - WHAT WILL YOU DO? HOW WILL YOU COPE? Please feel free to tell us how much you'll miss this bitter, bitter shake of nihilism and ennui being forced down your gullet each week, even if it means you lying through your teeth. 

Anyhow, this week's is a particularly mediocre edition in celebration of my impending break - during which I am going to be in part catsitting for my girlfriend, so there is the outside possibility that all my tendons will have -been shredded and I will never be able to type again, so chin up! =  so without further ado let's pull the skin right back and take a look - it's probably fine, right? RIGHT! This, as ever, is Web Curios!

My chronic inability to avoid needless verbosity (see? even when I am trying to apologise for it, FFS) means that this has once again gone LONG and gone LATE - that said. it's fair to say in passing that if this week has taught us anything (and by 'us' I mean 'you' - I am no longer capable of learning anything, mostly instead leaching knowledge from my ears at a rate of knots) is that YOU DO NOT FCUK WITH VLADIMIR.

(as an aside, I texted that to my girlfriend this week but misspelled his name with an 'f' rather than a 'd' - turns out, he's a lot less intimidating if you call him 'Vlafimir')

(as another aside, let me make it clear to any agents who may be reading this that my opening this week is making absolutely NO inferences whatsoever, ok? Good)

Anyway, we ALL have things to be getting on with, not least YOU dear readers who have...no, I'm not going to tell you the word count this week, it will only upset you. Rest assured, though, that as ever it dense, thick and packed with the sort of chewy infolumps of questionable origin that have become Web Curios very own indigestible trademark. GET THE WARMING FLUID DOWN YOU, CHILDREN, FOR WHO KNOWS WHEN WE SHALL EAT AGAIN (next week, same time, same place, for reassurance) - this, as ever, is Web Curios.
