Blogs and Frogs

More observant readers would have noticed by now the subtle change to the banner heading of this blog. If I can't be the leader in the field of poo jokes, I can at least claim to be one. Be a poo joke. Or so I might have been thinking. In truth, it has more to do with my on-line Tourettes Syndrome. Fiddling and twiddling, tweaking a few things up, sneaking a few things in. Never letting things settle. Worrying it. Like a dog worrying a bone. Why a bone should ever feel worried I have no idea.

And talking of bones being worried, who would have guessed an ugly blue frog could become such a cult figure? He doesn't even have a full set of teeth. Could it be to do with his anatomically incorrect appendage, which generated several complaints when his ads appeared on various music TV channels? I noticed for the first time this morning whilst grimly watching the annoying little bugger, that there's some kind of mosaic-like distortion bloting out his vital area. The kind used to preserve the anonymity of people caught on camera - their faces a kind of moving animated blur giving the impression they have heads like smudged fingerprints and car index plates swirling as if under water. Weird to do this with an animated figure - guess it's all part of the joke. Not sure if Chris Martin will be laughing along with this little cutie though. Seems we are heading into....

..."Walked in the cold air
Freezing breath on a window plane
Lying and waiting
A man in the dark in a picture frame
So mystic and soulful
A voice reaching out in a piercing cry
It stays with you until
The feeling has gone only you and I
It means nothing to me
This means nothing to me
Oh, Vienna....."

Having a spot of bother with:

..."What's-a matter you,
hey, gotta no respect,
What-a you t'ink you do,
why you look-a so sad,
It's-a not so bad,
it's-a nice-a place,
Ah, shaddap you face...."

.....territory, with Crazy Frog the new 'Shaddup You Face' Joe Dolce and Cold Play taking the (forever wronged) Ultravox roll, leaving CM and the rest of us rage-dancing with tears in our eyes.
