My brother married into an American family and boasts both a Brady and a Duane as in-laws. Their bemused horror at the reality of bro's South London 'hood not living up to their Downton and The Crown preconceptions was the funniest shit I've ever seen, man.

Rep. Markwayne Mullin (Oklahoma) being interviewed on NBC now and sounding batshit insane. Saying the violence is in no way Trump's fault and "people are ultimately responsible for their own actions" and talking of "agitators" attacking the Trump supporters. Now going on about Antifa and "both sides fanning the flames". Fucking hell. Spoken like a fully paid-up cult member.

Wankers who go around in pairs seemingly to afford their names some kind of spark


“Howdy I’m Bryant.”

Ah okay you’ve got an extra t in your name, let’s see if your friend or partner here happens to have a missing one.

“Yankydoodle I’m P.”

Of course, just P.  Short for Peter, you see.  Consider me shocked at your absence of a t sound, by the way.  Didn’t see it coming.

Him and his bro, out on the prowl



My friend in North Carolina has a cousin whose first name is Skeeter.

Rusty, a name that used to be quite commonly given to boys born with red hair, seems to have lost favour in America.

My sources from south of the Mason-Dixon Line* tell me that Skeeter is a slang term for a Mosquito (‘moskeeter’) so he/she would seem to be named after a blood-sucking insect.

*Wikipedia article on Skeeter Davis.

Markolt is a very common American name.


Not Mark or Marcus.  “Markolt”.

Yet not Mankolt, oddly.

It is one of the all-time great baseball logos you philistines - simultaneously combines the tricolour of France (cos of Québec), the M for Montréal, and if you look - the red and blue letters stand for “Expos Baseball” (and on an all white jersey, that’s what you’d see).

The Big Train is one of the all time great pitchers as well for lots of esoteric baseball reasons, but also here he is (inadvertently) demolishing a bird with (what looks to me like) a high 90s 4 seamer:
