The Lava Trolley: March 2008

The Lava Trolley

Or is it the lavatory???

...Either case, this little nook on blogasphere is the natural dumping ground for the sort of crap that erupts
when you find a wee Chink in the Britworks...

But hey, I promise you this is steamingly hot shit...which is probably why it's all looking a bit brown!

The one about irony...


"Mr Play-It-Safe was afraid to fly.
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye.
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight And as
the plane crashed down, he thought,
'Well, isn't this nice?'
Isn't it ironic, don't you think?"

No, actually. I don't.

Just another song that I keep hearing at work. Whatshisfizz (I don't often pay attention to the names of presenters) on Radio Wave must really like it. Catchy song...but even he has the presence of mind to admit there's very little about this song that's ironic.

Alanis Morrisette has completely missed the point. Whenever this comes on, it's all I can do to keep myself from choking the proverbial neck of our bloody office radio with its own cord (That's about five times a day). Having it rain on your wedding isn't ironic...It's just shitty luck. Now, if she'd mentioned that the groom happened to be a Meteorologist, I'd let it go...Or, if Mr Play-It-Safe got off the plane only to get hit by a car when he crossed the road.

Speaking of which...

"A shopkeeper has said he is 'relieved' to not face a
murder charge after a man who tried to rob him was
stabbed to death with his own knife."

Now, that's fucking ironic. Tony Singh has done the world a favour with this little bit of poetic justice. We should give him the Tony Martin award for moulding an otherwise unproductive member of society into to a lovely heap of fodder fit for compost.
