National Post & Toronto Sun “Comments” – September 8th, 2018

Saturday, September 8th, 2018

I have found in the past that commenting under letters-to-the-editor or news items in the on-line version of newspapers can be an excellent means of getting your point across to quite a large audience. Equally, it is important to not get bogged down in “following” responses to your and other people’s scrawlings, it can take up a lot of your time.

It is better to just simply post your comment, bookmark it, and check occasionally to see if any critique has been posted that requires a response.

And as I have said before, “Obviously, name-calling and bad language might go over well in the ‘comments’ to be found beneath the published letters, very often the comments contain little else…” so the comments below might not be for the prudish or delicate.

Enjoy!

Police humour

Saturday, February 23rd, 2013

Found on the internet; these are said to be real comments made by South Carolina Troopers that were recorded on their car videos:

“You know, stop lights don’t come any redder than the one you just went through.”

“Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they’re new. They’ll stretch after you wear them a while.”

The writing assignment… (Humour)

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

This comes under the “Men are from Mars, women are from Venus” category.  We all need a good laugh once in a while, and this story hit the spot for me.

Caution: Contains obscene language, although rather moderate by today’s standards.  Be warned anyway.  -JG.

News media accuracy…

I’m not sure I want to post much humour on my website, but humour can be an excellent way to make a point, and I couldn’t resist this gem from someone out there in cyberspace…

EE Times

Clive Maxfield: June 20th, 2011

A friend in England just sent me a rather funny email that describes the various terrorist threat levels used by different countries…

This purports to have been written by John Cleese of Monty Python fame. It certainly sounds like something he might have written, but with the way things zip around the Internet it’s hard to be sure sometimes.
