Well hello all and a happy new year and all that balls to everyone who actually reads this.
Due to a distinct lack of inspiration induced by a festive season spent bathing in copious amounts of alcohol and unsuitable food, I am falling back on the classic new year filler - a round-up of the previous year!
Yes, that's right, here are a couple of my favourite piles of shit from 2010. Enjoy!
Plus, I've saved a new one for last so don't despair!
Not strictly a journalistic error, but what the hell, it is funny... Is Facebook trying to tell me something?

Obviously, they may be mental, but I still love them.
Have a good one - and don't forget to keep your spots and any other rants coming to email@example.com should you wish to!
