Funny Sex

by The Madhatters

Restaurant-front croppedI’m always looking for something different to post in Madhatters – something that will amuse, but inform as well

with that in mind, I thought I’d post a link to a review of the ‘Funny Sex’ restaurant at 446 Zhongshan Road in Lingya district for any madhatters living in or thinking of visiting Taiwan

Nae Mair Chappin’ in Seville

by The Madhatters

dominoes banned200don’t you just hate noisy eaters?

and as for bloody dominoes players – Ggrrr!!!

People (in Scotland) playing dominoes are said to be chappin’ when they cannot play. Sometimes they actually tap the table to indicate their inability to play (http://tinyurl.com/og4pyaq)

well, there’ll be no more public crunching or slurping in Seville after the local council banned eating or drinking while standing next to café terraces

nor playing dominoes either !

by The Madhatters

eyes in blackouta couple thought the way to overcome a child’s fear of the dark was to teach him to think positively about the dark by associating it with something pleasurable, like sweets

Assault on Gaza

by The Madhatters

Question any action of the Israeli Government and one will almost certainly be accused of anti-semitism by its defenders – a convenient way to avoid answering any awkward questions

and if a critic can’t be dismissed as anti-semitic, because he or she is themselves a Jew, then they are accused of being a ‘self-hater’

watch what happens when Jon Stewart, an american broadcaster, and himself a Jew, broadcast this piece on the Israeli assault on the residents of Gaza

that piece caused a rabid right-winger to launch a hysterical . . .

Police Seek Numpty

200pxbank-robbery-cartoon-western-times-36267305modern technology has no doubt improved our lives in many ways from that of our fore-bearers

but in some respects, the old ways are still the best

who doesn’t remember watching movies of the old west when thieving toerags pulled a bandana up over the lower part of their face and a stetson down over the eyes to mask their appearance?

Cruel to be Kind

by The Madhatters

6rphsqnl_largethe old adage ‘the camera never lies’ may well have been true pre-photoshop days but no longer can one trust the image in front of us
