Sorry there have been no posts for a while, as I have been moaning about lately I have been extremely busy - dogs don't walk themselves you know (well they do but i don't think the human race is able to accept that at the moment - the dogs seem fine with it).

Anyway, I have been really busy and consequently we have an announcement to make here at thumping the tub (in fact i think i just made it - did you notice the 'we'? hint hint nudge nudge).

Tomorrow for that.

In the meantime we have a new poll and a new warmonger of the week (scroll down right hand side). Bit of a british flavour to this one. 50% of readers on this site are from the UK and about a quarter are from the US so US readers willeither have to chekc it up or think about John Timoney (or even look him up as well!). it's not an entirely fair comparison but it is in the same neck of the woods.

If anyone cares the results of the old poll were as follows...

What Annoys You Most about Tony Blair?

Sanctimonious Git 8%
Liar 3%
Murderer 3%
Poodle 14%
The way he comes over all hurt if someone asks him a tough question 11%
treatment of british workers 0%
all of the above 62%

Blogger isn't uploading photos so WE were going to be really funny about this but unfortunately we can't be so fuck it.

    Hmm. Let me take a stab: YOU is either plural, so hurray and congrats to Lil' Tubthumper or you've got some multiple personality issues. On that, hurray and congrats to Tubthumper ver 1.0.2.

  • What You Like
  • I believe the word for this is "splenetic". Only 20 seconds long.

  • Wish You Were Here is a 6 minute film about the unprecendted rate of animal extinction we are currently experiencing

  • Gorillas and us

    Arse of the month
