Different Solution

I spoke last week about one solution to this problem (i.e., throwing the filthy scum off Waterloo Bridge).  However, as a couple of observant Readers told me, there’s a problem:  shit floats, and so there won’t be an adequate mortality rate.

So let’s ratchet the thing up a tad, shall we?  And will anyone be surprised that my next solution to the scum-in-the-streets issue comes from yesteryear?  Oh yes, it does:

It’s called the Sherman “Crab”, from WWII, and here’s what it looks like in action:

Imagine a few of these bad boys employed against this lot:

Try not to giggle like a little girl.

Next week, we’ll be looking at the Angry Bee Solution (developed by Your Humble Host).

Real Goths

…and we’re not talking about the sad, trendy youngins who look sad, feel sad and listen to sad music.  No, we’re talking about the people (of all ages) who are inspired by the gothic novel form, as seen in Bram Stoker’s Dracula.  And where else can one indulge one’s inner Goth than in the town which inspired it all?

When it comes to dressing up in costumes, I’m all for it.  Many’s a costume party I’ve attended wearing Viking dress (complete with battle-ax and horned helmet), or a Roman toga, or a Fifties-era outfit, or a French military uniform from World War I (to name but a few of the personas I’ve adopted).

My rule of thumb:  when it’s a party, it’s fine.  When it becomes your lifestyle, then it’s fucking pathetic.

Alternative Action

So the eco-loons were out in force in Londonistan for the past couple of days, gluing themselves to buildings and generally causing the usual havoc.

More than 200 people have been arrested over the ongoing climate change protests in London, with activists physically carried by police from demonstrations at Waterloo Bridge and Oxford Circus.

Which made me think.  Here’s a picture of one such loony:

And here’s a pic of Waterloo Bridge:

Am I the only one thinking of an alternative for the police to arresting these scruffy tools?  (My Latin’s a little rusty, but pontis iacerendum  would be the proper term, I think.)

“Extinction Rebellion”, my aching left buttock… I can think of at least one  species that should be made extinct.
