It's Friday o'clock

This week has been a horrific shit show for Londoners and other England-dwellers. One of my greatest fears is (admittedly zombie-related) civil unrest but I have been left utterly baffled by what has gone on here. I simply can't get my head around the mindless insanity that possessed shit loads of kids and teenagers to go and loot the fuck out of our wonderful city and destroy anything they could get their hands on.

Some excellent black humour has arisen out of it all, as have some wonderfully human acts of kindness and bravery. For shaming the looters, I think you can't beat photoshop (see below), and for scaring the shit out of them to stop them doing it again, the results of a water cannon to the face should probably do the trick (not for the fainthearted).

Finally, I found out on the internet this week that the German word "kummerspeck" means "excess weight gained by emotional over-eating" and translates literally as "grief bacon". Have a happy weekend everyone.

Update - here are two late additions. Very well worth it.
