Not over until the bearded lady sings

COPENHAGEN, Denmark. Austrian bearded drag queen Conchita Wurst won the 59th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday with a James Bond-inspired entry that had unleashed a wave of protests in eastern Europe before the competition. The power ballad, “Rise Like a Phoenix,” helped Wurst — the alter ego of 25-year-old Thomas Neuwirth — secure Austria’s second victory in the competition with 290 points. The country also won in 1966. “This is dedicated to everyone who believes in a future of peace and freedom,” a tearful Wurst said as she accepted the trophy from Denmark’s Emmelie de Forrest, who won the contest last year.slide_348920_3722765_free

Pushing the boundaries of gender identity is nothing new at Europe’s annual song contest, an extravaganza known for its eclectic, sometimes unlistenable lineup of techno beats, love songs and pop tunes. The winner in 1998 was Israel’s Dana International, who had male-to-female gender reassignment surgery several years before competing. ‘Conchita Wurst’ a bearded drag queen wins Eurovision 2014

Jeezuz wept! This just about sums up the nonsense that is ‘Eurovision’ or anything beginning with ‘Euro.’ Since childhood through to present day I have detested-hated-loathed, and despised everything associated with this annually produced bilge, as well as the sneaky politics behind it. Isn’t ‘wurst’ a sausage?            Yours Aye.

For those who remain clueless over Eurovision; be grateful, be very grateful indeed!

Bronies! For gawds sake get a grip…

article-2617188-1D7BD58100000578-309_634x420My Little Pony is not just for girls! Grown men obsessed with the cartoon defend their unlikely passion as well as their dressing up in the cartoon regalia…bronies2A new documentary is shedding light on the controversial subculture ‘Bronies’: men who are obsessed with the toy-turned-cartoon series My Little Pony. A Brony Tale, which premiered at Tribeca Film Festival this weekend, features one man named Steven who says he often gets mistaken for a ‘pedophile’ or ‘big old man child’ as he goes shopping for his favorite pastel-colored ponies. ‘There might be a mom and her daughter walking by, look down this aisle and see an older guy looking through pony toys. It’s programmed in their mind to jump to the worst-case scenario,’ he says.      Oh you think so?


So-called “Bronies,” adult men who are fans of the TV show “My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic,” have apparently been around at least since 2010, when the Hasbro-owned cartoon first aired. Within their ranks are “Military Bronies,” service members from all branches of the military who share their love of the show and wear the “cutie mark” — a Rainbow Dash patch on their uniforms. My-Little-Pony-not-just-girls-Grown-men-obsessed-cartoon-defend-unlikely-passion

I must have spent the better part of my life in a parallel universe, as I had no idea what ‘My Little Pony’ was until I browsed Google! To read the background surrounding ‘Bronies’ is bad enough, but to read about ‘Military Bronies’ getting in on it! Bejeezus, Joseph, Mary, and the donkey; what is going on in the world?Its 01:35 hrs, and I am going for a slug from a stashed bottle of Port that I keep for emergencies… I may not be back for a while 😉                 Yours Aye. 

I love a good sneeze!

‘It has to be said that I love a good sneeze ~ an explosive one to bring leaves down from trees ~ and not just one but three in a row ~ if I’m ever so lucky I’ll knock out four!’  E-B.DSC_0021For as long as I can remember I have loved a good sneeze! The tell-tale tickle deep inside the nose that just appears from no where, which causes one to savour the sensitive discomfort (that is also a mild pleasure!) Then the tease of breathing in through the nose in short gentle intakes so as not to allow the tickle to escape; that then builds into an almighty wriggling tickle that needs to be released with the power equivalent to the back-blast of a 105mm anti/tank gun. ‘BOOM!’ Away she goes… Followed by the feeling of giddy rapture due to a nano second of unconsciousness; knowing full well that the next mild tickle is forming as visual sense is regained. This time trying to make the wriggling tickle last longer than the first until ‘BOOOM!’ Followed by the final ‘BOOOOM!’ Which, sadly, is the triple over and done with for the time being at least…         Click pics to enlarge Rapeseed fieldsBeing surrounded by rapeseed crops it would appear that my love for sneezing has to be curtailed, other wise I will be blowing birds out of trees as well as stripping them bare with a good old ‘KERCHOOO!!!’ For the first time ever I have turned to taking a small Piriton pill to stop me sneezing, even though I don’t suffer from the effects of hay-fever. This is more to save the canine’s sensitive hearing, because when I do sneeze even the neighbours in the village five miles away call to ask if I’m finished! ‘Nipper seeking cover from the blast’Nipper taking coverWhat a great morning though before popping a Piriton, and we aren’t even into Summer yet (three triples before breakfast followed by a super four just before lunch!) 😉 Yours Aye.

‘Consciously Uncoupled’ = D.I.V.O.R.C.E.

You will have well and truly heard by now that the ‘celebrity married couple’ Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow have announced that they have “consciously uncoupled!.” Or as Dolly Parton so often spelled out; they are heading down the road for a “D.I.V.O.R.C.E.”…article-2590788-1C90FB6400000578-427_634x442 How very Hollywood! Not that I give a rat’s arse about it, though there are children involved and it does appear that they do have their true interests at heart. What never ceases to amaze me is the weirdness that surrounds the people who live in the bubble of Hollywood, and the fact that they (and their practices) are accepted as normal to the false idol worshipers in the real world. It is pure speculation on my behalf; however, since the announcement it would appear that the breakdown in their previous ‘coupling’ was caused by the fact that ‘Gwynnie’ spends most of her time orbiting around the ‘Blue Snowball Nebula’ in the Andromeda constellation, some 2.5 million light years away! Just a personal observation obviously.     Yours Aye.article-2591285-1C9DC86B00000578-175_306x468

As Gwyneth Paltrow broke the news that she and husband Chris Martin were splitting up, it was immediately clear there had been three people in their marriage: Gwynnie, Chris . . . and her New Age guru, Dr Habib Sadeghi. 
Announcing the separation on her website Goop, the actress and lifestyle expert devoted just eight lines to an explanation, introducing a baffled world to the idea of ‘conscious uncoupling’. She then spent the rest of the announcement regurgitating a tortuously long essay that Dr Sadeghi and his wife Dr Sherry Sami had written to explain this psychobabble. More Here: If you think Gwynnie’s bonkers; then meet ‘Holistic wise man’ Dr Habib Sadeghi, founder of ‘Be Hive of Healing’ in Los Angeles, and Gwyneth Paltrow’s ‘mentor’ and ‘favourite doctor’…

Ten minutes to death-O-clock

Asking the grim reaper for the time. Now there’s a watch that not only predicts when you will die, it also begins counting down. Users fill out a questionnaire about their medical history before subtracting their age from the overall results to get their death score, his score is entered into the Tikker and the countdown begins. Dubbed ‘the death watch‘, Tikker has been created by Swedish inventor Fredrik Colting but far from being morbid, Colting calls it ‘The Happiness Watch‘ and claims it has been designed to help people make the most of their life and cherish the time they have left.   Would YOU want to know when you’ll die? Now there’s a watch that can predict your death to the nearest SECOND  While death is non-negotiable, life isn’t. All we have to do is learn how to cherish the time and the life that we have been given; seize the day, and follow our hearts.”article-2448539-1893CEA100000578-618_634x309  If this catches on and becomes as popular as the $ 1- X RAY SPECS  from the 60’s, then Fredrik Colting can order his XC90 Volvo now.  But who on earth would want to know what time they are going to hell in a handcart (and who on earth would want a Volvo). Yours Aye.

Cars for women, camels for men!

Is the saying used in Saudi Arabia when Sheikh Salah al-Luhaydan said “If woman drove they would damage their pelvis, and their children could suffer ‘clinical’ disorders”! In 2011 Muslim scholars said a relaxation of the ban would see both men and women turn to homosexuality and pornography. He went on to tell the Saudi news website “Driving could have a reverse physiological impact. Physiological science and functional medicine studied this and found that it automatically affects ovaries and rolls up the pelvis. This is why we find that women who continuously drive cars, their children are born with clinical disorders of varying degrees.”article-2436607-18597A1900000578-326_634x416 The startling conclusions were drawn in 2011 at the Majlis al-Ifta’ al-A’ala, Saudi Arabia’s highest religious council, working in conjunction with Kamal Subhi, a former Professor at the King Fahd University.

In the report Professor Subhi described sitting in a coffee shop in an unnamed Arab state. “All the women were looking at me, one made a gesture that made it clear she was available, this is what happens when women are allowed to drive.” Their report assessed the possible impact of repealing the ban in Saudi Arabia, the only country in the world where women are not allowed behind the wheel. It was delivered to all 150 members of the Shura Council, the country’s legislative body. The report also warned that allowing women to drive would ‘provoke a surge in prostitution, pornography, homosexuality and divorce’. Within ten years of the ban being lifted there would be ‘no more virgins’ in the Islamic kingdom. 

Better not tell that to 93-year-old Elinor Otto, who works as a riveter on US Air Force C-17 Globemaster III cargo aircraft, at a Californian Boeing plant. Elinor first picked up a riveting gun during World War II, the original ‘Rosie the Riveter’ Elinor is out of bed every morning at 4-am, gets a coffee and newspaper, before starting work by 6-am; parking as far away from the plant as possible so she can walk over as part of her morning exercise. article-2434889-185171D300000578-998_634x358

Daddy is topless… SFW

Rather than brush this one under the carpet I thought I would try and read through to understand the story ‘proper-like’. I have failed, miserably… CAUTION Strategically pixelated; Topless equality transexual activist causes bust-up with neighbors after insisting on doing EVERYTHING – including barbecuing and bike-riding – half-naked  I also feel that 38-year-old  ‘Stacey’ Schnee, the pre op (or) post op transexual who is a single Mom, was previously (presumably) a single Daddy at some point, who like most men would take off their shirts in summer to bask in the sun, without any one around taking offence.

Perhaps ‘Stacey’ Schnee has fallen into the transexual trap of keeping a psychological foot either side of the metaphorical door, caused through a chemical imbalance. Because lets face it, the position she is now in can only be attributed to the amount of chemicals pumped into her body daily. 

Her quote also concerns me some what: “I’m topless and even nude in front of my kids all the time. ‘For them it’s nothing. They don’t see it as anything strange at all. They just don’t care. ‘This is just how our family is. It’s just a little different. Daddy has breasts and Daddy is now a girl. To them it’s completely normal. Normal is correct when used as an Antonym, certainly not when used as a Synonym. Normal Dignity & respect sits in balance with age & gravity, there is a time in an adults life when covering up correctly in front of growing children is expected. Nature, just like the English language, is a wonderful thing, messing with each brings along its own problems.

Yours Ayewho lives in the real world.

Zombie crocodile epidemic expected

Arizona is making ready for an out break of Zombies of the worst kindCrocodile Zombies, and they will soon be coming to a neighbourhood close to you, courtesy of Russia. Warning, the content may be graphic for those over 18. For those under 18, don’t worry they  see it every day, as they play their ‘shoot-them-up-kill-them-all-dead’ games.article-2432802-18454BBE00000578-251_634x430Horrific images of drug-users eaten alive by flesh-eating illness, caused by homemade heroin substitute that has arrived on American shores in ArizonaThe first cases of a terrifying new drug called ‘Krokodil’ that eats flesh from the inside out, is flammable and leaves addicts with reptilian-like skin have been reported this week in Arizona – and the state fears the beginning of an epidemic. Popular in Russia, ‘Krokodil’ is homemade, is three-times cheaper than heroin, and created by mixing codeine with gasoline or oil, filtering it and then injecting the rancid concoction into the users body. Banner’s Poison Control Center encountered the drug when two addicts arrived in emergency rooms with their flesh hanging off their body, exposing bone or with skin resembling that of a crocodile, hence its name.

I hope to God the craze for ‘Krokodil’ stays away from this side of the pond, cos only the bad guys are allowed guns over here. Though I could always duct tape a Fairbairn-Sykes Commando knife to each of the canines heads, and keep them hungry…                       Yours Aye.

Cats, dogs & a sneaky bunny rabbit

I once went out with a girl who owned a full grown 3-year-old Neapolitan Mastiff, it was a short lived relationship that lasted all of several days as the dog suffered from fits of ‘raged jealousy’. On my first visit to pick her up I ended up covered in saliva-goo, so thick I had to stop off at my home to change, and then head on to the restaurant to meet with friends.images-2

That evening as I dropped her back home, I thought I was going have to enter into mortal combat as I was left alone with the Mastiff, and he squared up to me; I didn’t back down or flinch, though I didn’t fancy being covered in blood, snot, and slavered-goo… His mistress saved him from the biggest hiding of his short life as she returned to the room; where upon he turned back into a bunny rabbit… ‘oh he is soooo cute’? As a gallon of thick drool slopped onto my heavily polished brogues. There was worse to follow over the course of several days, the content of which remains a locked secret to this day..article-0-18313F1400000578-282_634x514

It could have been worse, far worse, she could have had a cat like Annel Snyman 31, who has formed an incredible bond with an 18-month old ‘big cat’ called Timba after adopting him as a cub in March last year, and bringing him to live at her ranch in the Waterberg region of South Africa. 

Question, where does it sleep? Answer, any where it wants!        Yours Aye.

Meanwhile in Venezuela

It isn’t just the economy sliding down the pan! As the chronic shortage of toilet paper continues, it has forced the Venezuelan government to send troops to a factory to make sure stocks are fairly distributed. For the first time in the country’s history rationing is now being enforced; three single sheets per person per movement, the recommended use of which, is one sheet as a wiper, and two sheets for polishing! The shortage has led President Nicolas Maduro to order a national price regulator to take over toilet roll plants in the capital ‘Carac-ass’, to verify production processes and distribution, before placing them under the watch of the National Guard Below: The 50 Bolivar note, with Dr. Enrique Flushing pictured in front of the Nations Presidential palace, which incidentally houses the countries first water gravity fed flushing toilet system..ven50The South American country has been beset by a lack of consumer goods due to inflation and tough trading conditions. To this end, the President has now made it a federal offence for any citizen to use the nations Bolivars paper currency as wiping or polishing material. He has also condemned the use of individual sheets of toilet roll being used on the black market as currency. He has further stated that he and his government will not take the current situation sitting down, and contrary to public belief, the left hand does know what the right hand is doing.           Yours Aye.

Quick Fact

Redheads are harder to sedate than any other group. Using common anesthetics they require 20% more anesthesia. They also have a high tolerance for pain than normal people other types. This is because the Melancortin 1 receptor mutation that gives them red hair also triggers the excess release of Pheomelanin, which among other things stimulates a brain receptor related to pain sensitivity.ThreeScottishWarriors

Which now explains how my Irish Gran could pick up red hot cinders spat from the fire (with her bare hands) before throwing them back onto it again. It also explains why the fighting Irish and the Scots were so hard to knock down… It is staggering to read that research reveals that there are 20MILLION red hair gene carriers in the UK. Even more staggering, is that Yorkshire is as redheaded as Ireland (I was born in County Durham, and originally dark Auburn, until nature took its course)! article-2401346-1B7041FC000005DC-552_634x757 Map produced by the UK’s DNA showing where redheaded genes are concentrated. In Mediaeval times, red hair was associated with moral degradation, and intense sexual desire. images-2 Redheads with green eyes were regarded as vampires, werewolves and witches. The Spanish inquisition singled them out for persecution, believing their hair to be a sure sign that they stole the fires of hell.

Through personal experience I can state that redheads are my Kryptonite, and with that I will bid you all a goodnight!

Samantha La Rocco, One Big Snook

There is pathetic and then there is super pathetic. Read this article on El Lay resident Samantha La Rocco and tell me how many ridiculous this sounds:

As many women can relate, being dumped is a horrible feeling filled with sorrow and pints of ice cream.

But in Samantha La Rocco’s case, her pity party was brought to an abrupt halt Sunday when she received an uplifting message on her to-go container from Truly Vegan, a restaurant in Los Angeles.

“I had just been dumped and was in full-blown break up mode,”La Rocco, 23, told “I was ordering food in, and my hair was mess and I had my break up pants on.”

In the midst of her sorrow, she decided to include a note in the special instructions section online while placing her order that read, “I’ve just been dumped. Please draw something inspiring on the container.”

Not expecting the restaurant to even really read the note, let alone follow through, she was more than pleasantly surprised when she received her salad.

“It was the happiest salad I’ve ever had in my life,” she said. “I kept the container. It’s still in the refrigerator.”

Included on the Styrofoam box was a stick figure holding a sign surrounded by hearts that said, “You’re worth it,” followed by “You don’t need him to be happy,” with a sunshine above it.

The message on the box was exactly what La Rocco needed to pick herself up and dust herself off.

“This is the best break up I’ve had,” she said. “The food container thing has totally helped.”

Okay, she had her break up pants on? I guess she gets broken up with a lot. (I wonder what those babies look like.) And she begs the Vegan Shack to draw a picture on her lousy styrofoam box and then when they do, she is ecstatic? And some vegan place, with that styrofoam box. Are they not big no-nos for the planet? She is only slightly less a snook than Casey Snook and her mother Kate Snook.
