Death By Twitter

According to severely restricted social network spout pipe Twitter every single celebrity in the world has died. All projects they were working on will now be released as special tribute editions, no matter what stage of completion they stood at. After this the only new media of any sort shall be those things they did early that were shelved for being dire but now that those starring are famous there is a selling point.

A memorial service for all the deceased fame whores will be held next week but will not be televised due to the lack of celebrity attendance on account of them all being dead.

The day after the service a popular national tabloid will no doubt print sordid details of eachof the celebs final hours leading up until their collective death, every account involving how they piled drink/drugs/bacon into their system whilst having freaky sex in a cupboard with a hooker/bit on the side.

It is unclear how ordinary people will cope with this brave new non-starlet filled world and Samaritans have announced extra operators to cope with an increase of calls.


All the celebrities quoted on social lie spout Twitter as being dead are, in fact, alive.

The memorial service will still be held as practice in case this hoax ever becomes a tragic reality.

How To Tell Scrooge McDuck's A Glaswegian

Bill Corbett, of the hilarious Rifftrax team, posted a while back on his Twitter page a rather interesting link. Supposedly Scrooge McDuck, of Duck Tales fame, is from Glasgow. So here's a guide to how you can tell that Scrooge McDuck is a Glaswegian:

There was a banned episode of Duck Tales where McDuck stabbed a guy for "looking at him a bit funny"

He does a flawless Rab C. Nesbitt impersonation when he's drunk

His liver's flammable

He regularly hangs out with that other lovable animated racial stereotype Groundskeeper Willy.

He clearly doesn't have any teeth

If the opening credits to Duck Tales are to be believed he swims in his money (00:23):

Anything to avoid a bath, eh?

He's got a lot of kids hanging about his house that aren't his. Probably fiddling the benefits again.

He doesn't wear any underwear.

Like all successful Scots he buggered off abroad (unless Duckburg is just outside Clachnacuddin)

He's a racist. Okay he doesn't say it out loud but all of his friends are white.

See it's obvious when someone points it out to you!

Just a quick reminder ahead of the imminent arrival of episode 5 of Big Red's Fun Bus that you can hear the first four episodes on this very site. You don't need to trawl through all the guff, sorry, momentous comedic witterings, oh no.

Instead of looking for all the posts labelled "the show" you can check out all available episodes at any time thanks to the Podbean Player. There's one on the sidebar and another at the bottom of the page (plus there's another on the Big Red's Fun Bus My Space page. Bebo won't allow it to be embedded at the moment so other arrangements are being made to post the show on there for the members of that group if they're too lazy to go elsewhere!).

If you still don't know what is being referred to here it is:

Listen away!

Episode 5 In The Works

Episode 5 of Big Red's Fun Bus has been a long time in the making.

Actually that's a lie because I've just started making it. I'll try and make sure it doesn't become a long time in the making as of now though.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next episode of Paisley's Premier Pile of Poo sketch show (not a tag that I think will catch on!) coming soon.

Happy Fucking Easter

Gorge yourself on chocolate and show your love for Jesus, who lest we forget invented it, hence today's celebration. Then he teamed up with the Easter Bunny and defeated evil. So give thanks and eat an Aero egg.

I don't have a Twitter account. There I've outed myself. How weird am I? If I did it would probably read like this. Think of it as an anti-micro-blog.

Watching Flight of the Conchords. Might pause it and go for a piss.
