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

Gin and tonic hater William Hanson frankly has to be the biggest idiot in Britain


Self-proclaimed “etiquette and protocol expert” (if such a thing could ever exist) William Hanson declared gin and tonics to be “frightfully downmarket” on Friday. In doing so, this moron and oddity proved himself not a man of knowledge but instead Britain’s ultimate village idiot.


Wally of the Week – Gin hater William Hanson
Wally of the Week – William Hanson would do well to admit he doent have a clue what he is talking about when it comes to anything to do with gin


According to an article posted Friday on the Mail Online, Hanson believes gin and tonics “no longer [have] any class and sophistication” and that they “have fallen victim to [their] own success”. He considers gin to have “gone the way of sambuca and Jagermeister” and that this deservedly popular tipple is a drink drunk only by “posers and peasants”. Worse still, this know-all concludes: “It is now not socially safe to be seen to enjoy this drink in public” before elsewhere declaring himself “a teacup and a saucer in a world of mugs”. We raise a G&T to him; he’ll, no doubt, be utterly disgusted.

  1. What are the Mail thinking? Most of their readers are “Gin and Jag” set. How to lose friends and alienate people.

  2. At first I thought this was the making of a Monty Python sketch
    What a prissy, pasty-faced prick. This mincing, nasal voiced fraud might once have been a waiter at Butlins but that in no way qualifies him to ‘advise’ his elders and betters. (That’s what come from watching too much Downton Abbey).
    Just a couple more of his egregious solecisms:
    He says: “Pink gin (add a splash of angostura bitters to the standard gin and tonic)”
    Dope. A proper Pink Gin is a few drops of angostura with Plymouth Gin. Nothing else.
    The benighted oik then suggests “Champagne (French, not the Italian or Spanish versions)”. There is only one appellation for Champagne. Any other sparkling wine is precisely that. Sparkling wine. Not a ‘version’ of Champagne.
    What a prat. Still our resident galah now will be misinforming his Melbourne mates as to the ‘proper’ way to swig their stubbies.
    Strewth. Give me strength. A bit early to attack the Hendricks bottle I ‘spose.

    1. Glen:

      Hendricks is not gin. It is vodka flavoured with cucumber.

      You can’t be a drinks expert if you think otherwise.

  3. HA! HA! HA!…..(Who the Hell gives a flying copulation for this dim little mental and social cripple’s opinion…..!!!?)

  4. Well nothing quite like a nice Gordons and Coke on a balmy evening on this side of the pond, with a twist, of course.
