Last night, I had the grave misfortune to fail to avoid, in the house, televised snatches of the impossibly self-regarding and arrogant Stephen Fry (described as a registered clever-person) on some programme with the awful “Jo Brand”.
I got caught in the shrapnel of Fry’s utterances as I passed. Anybody else who, henceforth, compares me with this pompous twit (sadly I sound like him, so they say, and I know lots of stuff etc etc etc…) will suffer the flails of my barbed writings.
Yes, you’ve guessed it: other members of my family actually “use” a Wire-less Tele Vision Apparatus. I occasionally try to get it removed back to The Man Who Installed It, without much success.
They were discussing Godwin’s Law, which I had heard referred to knowingly by many internetties over the years, but was afraid to ask what it was: if I did, then my un-knowing-ness would be revealed publicly to all and I would be killed.
But all you people who have clearly known it for years will all be relieved, that I can now slink into your company – still standing timidly at the back and nodding approvingly at anything sounding vaguely intellectual, mind – and hold my head a little higher.
I have, of course, been outing the GramscoStaliNazi nature of our main enemies for years: almost five now on here, and for varying times in other places. Perhaps there ought to be a counter-hypothesis, David’s Law – which states that as a discussion about leftists which have been correctly-tagged at the start as Nazis progresses, the probability that someone will say the phrase “swivel-eyed” or “Little Englander” approaches 1.
