While I was out, yesterday, I saw a bloke walking the other way ... towards me.

He had his hands in his pockets ... which could be considered suspicious.

It's probably nothing, but ... I wonder if I should report it?

Seriously (for a minute)

Wayne pointed me to a website called

I had a look at it, and didn't think it was that funny. (In point of fact it issues 'guidance' on handling Bayleafs ... but blots its copybook but stating, categorically, that the technique they offer 'always works'. Whereas, it doesn't. It only works 'sometimes')

However, this got me thinking.

Satirists make a living out of taking the piss out of Politicians, Judges, Police ... people in so-called 'authority'.

But I've come to realise that NO-ONE ... I repeat NO-ONE ... could do a better job - of piss-taking - than those groups do to themselves ... simply by being what they consider to be 'normal'.

You only have to look at what they say & do.

"It's probably nothing, but ..." being one of the finest examples I've seen for a while ... even though their Recruiting Posters and Websites took some beating!

This means it's not really worth trying to take the piss. You'll never 'better' them at it.
