Don’t call yourself “the Kraken” unless you’re rum or have tentacles

Seattle, Washington, has a new hockey expansion team. This is the logo:

Seattle Kraken: Name, logo revealed for new franchise - Sports Illustrated


It’s supposed to represent a scary sea monster that instills fear in the hearts of its adversaries. It looks like something a squid squeezed into a toilet bowl after two many bowls of Cap’n Crunch.

Is that a menacing red eye or blood in your stool, Mr. Kraken? Take some Imodium, Washington, and try again.

Washington in a Nugget

Pareidolia is a fancy name to describe the phenomenon of folks ‘seeing’ faces in everyday commonplace objects.

While the images are most commonly religious in nature,e.g., Jesus and Mary, there are exceptions – the most recent case to gain publicity being that of a woman who has been keeping a McDonalds chicken nugget in her freezer for the past 3 years because . . .

This guy has the right idea

I was driving down a local road on Sunday evening, when I saw a herd of local oiks (chavus urbanis) milling about in the middle of the road. As I slithered towards them on the snowy surface, they legged it, revealing three bloody great snowballs (about 4foot diameter) blocking the road.

I skidded gracefully to a halt, and observed the little bar-stewards running up a nearby footpath. However, two of the bolder ones had stayed at the kerb to see what I did.

I slid my window down and said,

“Come on lads – get ’em shifted, please.”

“Can’t!” sneered the head chav (the apostrophe is mine – I doubt that he’d have used one if he were writing instead of sneering)

“You dozy little twat – isn’t it past your bedtime?” I retorted, rather foolishly.

I say ‘foolishly’ as I only just hit the button to shut the window before a big fuck off snowball hit the glass. I would have looked and felt a prize pillock if it had hit me square in the mush.

Anyhow, the oiks departed, and I got out to roll these big heavy buggers out of the road, to a chorus of jeers from the other end of the footpath.

Like I said in the title, this guy has the right idea!
