"Giant, Slim and Hairy are the only players to survive the road crash! They've had to bring in a rookie, a veteran and two tonnes of munce to make up the squad!"

It's bad luck to say m*cb00k, you should refer to it as the Scottish laptop.

I sometimes think Musk is deliberately tanking twitter for the sake of humanity's soul.

But I only think that when I'm feeling particularly generous of spirit.

How is "Bojemoi!" pronounced?

I always assumed it was something like "BOW-ZHem-MoY!"

I know nothing of phonetics.

I'm trying to remember if Stogie had any catchphrases, or just crude hispanic jibber-jabber.

See How They Run (Disney+)


It's no Knives Out, but it's definitely worth a watch.

Thanks for the recommendation - I've got a soft spot for Sam Rockwell, so will try this out.

I would echo much of what Jim says. If you’ve ever enjoyed Agatha Christie’s work there’s a lot of fun little easter eggs sprinkled throughout.

The Banshees of Inisherin

Martin McDonagh has yet to make a bad film. Colin Farrell is amazing. Brendan Gleeson is still the world's greatest living actor.

Set during the civil war, with the plot mirroring the broader political situation, it's an exploration of Irish flaws through black humour, and begorrah and bayjiss, never resorts to tired hollywood Irish stereotypes. All grudge and uncompromising escalation.

Totally bleak and not life affirming at all.

I loved it.

Andy Serkis turning up was also a treat.

Somehow Snoke returned.

My granda, used to just use the spring loaded traps, then hang the mutilated rodent corpse from the clothesline as a warning to any others. Different times.

I should also mention he was a farmer and his nearest neighbour was ~half a mile away.

Some years ago they had a rat specialist dude come over and he asked if birds were eating a lot of food in the garden. My Mum admitted she just hung out another of those suet balls whenever the old one was gone without thinking about it. He took her out into the garden and there under a remote bush was a pile of about a dozen mostly eaten suet balls that the rats had been taking off the tree.

I've heard soaking bird feed in hot sauce deters squirrels from eating all the bird food. It would probably work for rats too. Apparently birds' taste buds don't react to capsaicin. Chillies evolved to take advantage of this. Only birds eat them and then spread their seeds over a larger area.
