The Team

by MH team


This is the column where, to the palpitating hearts of its female followers and the (understandably) green-eyed jealousy of its male readers, the four administrators responsible for this august organ cast aside their assumed persona and reveal their true identities.

At fastidiously observed, regular sporadic intervals, MH will feature one of its dedicated team along with a true likeness of their real self and a brief glimpse into their awe-inspiring lifestyle – this to be followed up with a more complete profile when they can be arsed.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Another, long anticipated despatch from our ecologically concerned writer, Tarquin Stickington – or maybe it’s his brother, Julian (or maybe both ?)

In this well researched and no-nonsense article, he pulls no punches when disparaging the business ethics of giant multi-national conglomerates, accusing them of prioritising financial gain over any concern for the health and well-being of their fellow man.

He has well illustrated his point, by quoting the plight of the inhabitants of the Samoan Islands, once healthy – now obese (even more so than the Cousin Jacks).

But, dear reader, I’m a little confused to learn that this very same writer, keeps about his person an eight inch blade and fantasises about disembowelling his sibling – or maybe I read it wrong !

If you want to catch up with previous articles written by Tarquin -before he really lost it- then they can be found in the accompanying “comments” section, dated February 27th, 2017 and March 28th, 2017.


Read on for his piece . . .

March For Science

by allthoughtswork


“It’s a scientific fact.”

Say that in a Red State and you have a better than average chance of getting punched out, especially if the conversation canvasses what group deserves to be shot, what you should shoot them with, and what breed you’ve trained to retrieve the carcass. And beer.

It’s madness to reason with that level of inbreeding and dysfunction but many still try. Some even got organized and took to the streets last Saturday. But any true scientist will tell you that to impact a specific population, you must target their natural environment:

Next time, march down the cheap domestic beer aisle and hold a rally in front of the Doritos.

Brilliant signs at the March For Science

(Yes, they capitalize the F. No, I do not know why. I’m treating it as a subtle, tongue-in-cheek joke digging everyone who did not notice in the first place.)
