Stupid people are everywhere. In our neighbourhoods. Our cities. Our supermarkets. In our parliaments and our congresses. The greatest threat to human civilisation isn’t global warming, nuclear armageddon, a vast swarm of africanised honey bees or even flying monkeys. The threat comes from within.
WON’T SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN?
Whether it’s a kid freewheeling his bike down a dual carriageway feet in front of a double decker bus or a public figure cocking up on the world stage, it’s a wonder society endures.

Together, we can take the fight to the ignorant masses—or at least have a right good laugh for five minutes. Then sigh.
“Aristotle taught that the brain exists merely to cool the blood and is not involved in the process of thinking. This is true only of certain persons.”

Community membership is not open, but nonmembers can post. Bearing that in mind, friends lock anything you don’t want drifting in cyberspace.
Anyone using excessive netspeak and/or shitty grammar will be mocked. It’s people like you we’re ripping the piss out of. Doesn’t have to be Bard standard but, you know, readability helps.
If you’re posting material that isn’t worksafe, make this clear and put it behind a cut. It’s a courtesy thing.
No sockpuppets. I mean, really, what’s the point?
Other than that, have fun, and remember, my comrades: be ever vigilant.
