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.

Wally of the Week – William Hanson

Etiquette know-all (know-nothing) William Hanson makes his second appearance of 2016 as a ‘Wally of the Week’

 

William Hanson is a man with a serious chip on his shoulder (and “a moist towelette in his hands”). We made this bitchy bore our ‘Wally of the Week’ in March after he stated that gin is simply the drink of “posers and peasants” and now, with his list of the “year’s most poorly mannered celebs”, he’s taken that title for the second time.

 

Hanson, a truly laughable snob with an ego the size of Harrods, compiled his list for the Daily Mail and included Andy Murray (for a “spectacular lack of gallantry”), Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (for “terrible timekeeping”) and India Hicks (for “ingratitude”). His choices were not only pointless, they were ridiculous and they showed only one thing: This moron is about as much use as a chocolate teapot. He truly should be sent to Siberia.

  1. The Daily Mail obviously have a sense of humour and must have their tongue firmly in their cheek when they publish this ignorant buffoon. (DM know that his inanities drive their readers apoplectic!).

    It is reasonable for him to offer his ‘opinion’ – worthless though it may be. But when he sets himself up as an arbiter of good manners, his lack of knowledge is truly exposed. Read this example of his rubbish: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-4049274/Eat-1pm-boil-sprouts-NEVER-serve-starter-Etiquette-expert-William-Hanson-reveals-Christmas-dinner-traditions-making-look-common.html

  2. I see that he was bought up in what he describes as Bristol suburbia in a home furnished with beige sofas and weekend highlights of trips to John Lewis. He is clearly very middle, middle class

  3. What a amusing read. I am so glad I already natuarally do some of the posh things, dispite being from Yorkshire. However until recently we have not been able to blame the dog personally for the sprout fuelled farts x
