What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Manners maketh Marco

Marco Pierre White puts a rude radio presenter in his place

 

We’re not quite sure what Australian breakfast radio presenters have been drinking this winter but they’ve certainly been causing a lot of offence.

First, a prank call by 2Day FM’s Michael Christian and Mel Greig to the private hospital that treated the Duchess of Cambridge is said to have been the trigger for the suicide of a receptionist. There was rightly uproar and now the presenter of another station, Triple M’s Dale “Louie” Lewis, was so rude to Marco Pierre White that he terminated the interview.

 

During the pre-recorded discussion, Lewis made about quip about Pierre White’s marriages and then stated:

 

“If you’re the rude prick you come across on TV, I wouldn’t be there long either.”

 

Pierre White rightly put this obnoxious nitwit in his place with the following response:

 

“Rudeness is not having fun and if it is, it’s at the expense of another person. You’re a very rude man and I hope your mother is not listening to this show today because she would not be proud of her son. Have a nice day, bye bye.”

 

We’d suggest that it’s time that Australian breakfast presenters be sent to etiquette lessons. It’s time the most of them learnt some manners.

  1. Contrary to popular belief Marco is a very polite man. I met him once and he was charm personified. All that Hell’s Kitchen stuff is just for show.

  2. Marco might be tricky and unpredictable but he is never rude or disrespectful in any way and although strict and sometimes grumpy should never be tarred with the same brush as Gordon Ramsey. Marco never uses bad language and underneath his perceived brittle mantle he actually is rather a sensitive and considerate person but never takes prisoners!

  3. Who is killing the great chefs of Europe? Marco is the last of the great chefs, he has class and sophistication, decorum and intelligence. Gordon Ramsay is part of the lewd celebrity culture. Bravo Marco.
