 YOU HAVE TO LAUGH, DON'T YOU, EH? EH??? You know what? Fcuk it, neither you nor I want to read anything about the news or the state of the world right now. It's almost Christmas, and I am  tired . I imagine you are too.  This is the last Web Curios of 2018 - in a rare moment of genuine sincerity, I'd like to say thanks to everyone w...

Is it all going to be over on Tuesday night? Is it? CAN WE FINALLY STOP TALKING ABOUT THE FCUKING B WORD ON TUESDAY NIGHT??? 'No' is the short answer, but let's pretend we didn't hear it and instead envisage a glorious future where I open next week's final Curios of 2018 with some sort of heartwarming and genuinely optimistic shortform essay about ...

Have you all got over the excitement of the BIG COW (not in fact a cow)? Good, thank fcuk for that, let's focus on the things that  matter .  Or, more accurately, let's focus on a whole load of largely pointless links and words - I am LATE today, so this intro is going be even more phoned in than usual. Still, rest assured that everyone e...

Can we now officially call everyone who supports UKIP a racist, then? Is that OK? Good!  I can't be bothered to get angry about politics today, it seems (more) futile (than normal). I'm also in a hurry, so by way of preamble let me point out that it's getting very cold, that this country is in the grip of an appalling, embarrassing housing cri...

What is it about politics that attracts the world's worst people? I mean, it's true isn't it - look at them this week, plotting and preening and self-regarding and mindwanking themselves raw on the power fantasies whilst only-just-metaphorically sh1tting all over us. Thanks, Conservatives! Thanks! Thanks everyone! I don't know if I've ever mentione...

Well thank GOD that's all done with - the culture wars are over! AHAHAHAHAHAHA NO THEY ARE NOT THEY WILL NEVER END! As we move into a new reality, one in which the ostensibly simple fact of a press conference can usher in a spittle flecked debate about the very nature of truth, it dawned on me this week that, more than anything else, it very much f...

I know this has been a tricky week, with all sorts of stress and pain and difficulty and quite a lot of general 'wow, everything seems really quite messy and terrible, doesn't it?'-type vibes knocking about, but, well, I have spent much of it being a digital cowboy and frankly that's been enough to ensure that I've not really spent too much time th...

Obviously the Philip Green stuff comes as a TOTAL SHOCK, but can we not lose sight of the continuing insanity of the Saudi stuff, please? Not least the truly astonishing sight of the lovable Crown Prince openly making gags about disappearing people whilst onstage  - it's worth digging out the footage if you can find it, as the way he fist-bump...

Does this mean we now have to stop lauding the Saudi regime for its incredibly progressive decision to let women drive cars? Does this mean that they're the bad guys again? What? They were  always  the bad guys? GOD IT'S ALL JUST SO HARD. Welcome to yet another week in which once again we have been shown that if you're rich enough you rea...

Can we all agree that noone is ever allowed to use the term '4-dimensional chess' ever again, even ironically? Good, at least we can agree on  something .  You know, one of the worst things about writing this godawful newsletterblogthing is the fact that I painted myself into a corner a few years ago by creating a sort of editorial policy...

Were I a different type of writer, making an unsuccessful pitch for a scriptwriting gig on a mid-level Radio 4 topical comedy show, I’d probably open by making some poorly structured and slightly hackneyed gag about October’s arrival, noticing a chill in the air, and OH LOOK IT’S THE COLD WAR AGAIN. Thankfully for all of you, I am...

​ HELLO I AM BACK DID YOU MISS ME HELLO! Don't, please, answer that; I've had a lovely fortnight off, ignoring the internet and swimming and eating sea urchin (Jesus, so much sea urchin, so many lovely gonads) and meeting excellent cats and generally horsing around, and to be honest your crushing indifference to mine and Web Curios' return might ju...

So, I went to Leeds. And I survived, but dear GOD am I glad it was only a day and that I am not 16 any more. WHY ARE YOU ALL TAKING SO MUCH KETAMINE, FESTIVALGOING CHILDREN OF THE UK? WHY DO YOU ALL SHOUT 'WHOOMP THERE IT IS'  EVERY TIME THE DJ DOES SOMETHING GOOD? WHY AM I SO OLD AND CONFUSED? Anyway, I felt old and baffled and basically like...

Is he going to be impeached? IS HE? Stop getting excited, nothing's going to happen for AGES and in the meantime there's still plenty of stuff that could get worse. Don't worry, though, because over here we've finally got a plan for No Deal Brexit! It involves evertything being incredibly fcuking sh1t! But! Don't worry though! Because Jezzus is goi...

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...
