If you’ve ever asked the question “what happens when you splice together the genes of two clones?” (and I’m sure many of you have) we might finally have the answer! We’ve made enquiries and we’re only aware of one such occasion when this totally awesome experiment was carried out. If you take a gander at Hollywood clones Spike Lee and M. Night Shyamalan, when their … Continue reading Celebrity Gene Splicing: How They Made Jon Secada
If you’re a fan of the film Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (and if you’re not you should be), you’ve probably mouthed the song “Not So Far Away” by former Styx member Glen Burtnik. But is that what Glen’s really singing? We’re not so sure, it sounds more like “Your nuts are far away”. Maybe this song is about an old man whose testis have … Continue reading Behind The Lyrics: Not So Far Away By Glen Burtnik
Who was it who said “a watched pot never boils”? I stared intently at a pot of water over a stove and lo and behold, it started boiling at the ten minute mark. The boiling time will, of course, depend on the material and thickness of the pot, and the level of heat has its part to play too. I’ll also state for the record, … Continue reading Phony Proverbs: A Watched Pot Never Boils

I’m a big fan of 70’s music and talking raccoons so, as you can imagine, the Guardians Of The Galaxy films are amongst my favourite movies. I’m hyped about the third instalment. Wanting the inside scoop I found, to my surprise, that Chris Pratt had a pad in Leeds, West Yorkshire of all places. I eagerly packed some lunch and drove to the address. It’s … Continue reading What A Prat: Travelling To Christopher Pratt’s UK Home

A tell-tale sign that someone is a clone is a similar origin story. Take Squid Game actor Heo Sung-tae, who before acting entered a talent show contest and came fifth. This is very much like his progenitor Diana Dors, an actor who came third in a beauty contest. Add that to the fact that both Dors and Sung-tae are born three days apart in October … Continue reading Celebrity Clone Lab: Heo Sung-tae And Diana Dors
If someone told Conservative Home Secretary, immigration inquisitor and border bully Priti Patel that she looks like actress… Continue reading Celebrity Clone Lab: Priti Patel And Joni Flynn
The Schwartz company has been around since the 1800’s, making spices way before Frank Herbert was even born. With Herbert’s novel Dune being turned into a blockbuster film, this is surely the perfect time for these two commodities to be married together? Schwartz may not mine Dune’s fictional drug Melange (aka “Spice”) but they sell a few spices that give you greater vitality; cayenne pepper … Continue reading Tie-In Product Idea: Schwartz Spice And Denis Villeneuve’s Dune
What happens when you splice together the genes of a presenter and “singer” with an actor? The answer is you get a drunken law student who wanted to be famous! Gerard Butler has played Atilla The Hun, the Transylvanian Dracula, a Greek Spartan King, and the Egyptian god of the desert because he’s just that varied a performer, and of course, he has the super … Continue reading Celebrity Gene Splicing: How They Made Gerard Butler
BBQ season is well and truly over but I’ll be honest with you folks, I wasn’t overwhelmed by the level of taste in the condiments on offer, in particular mayonnaise.

My plan was to go to the best minds in this field and get them to prepare the … Continue reading Ayo Mayo Clinic: Word On The Street Is You Got The World’s Greatest Mayonnaise
Do you remember 9/11? It’s called “911” because that’s the day that four Porsche 911’s struck four US car dealerships. But do you remember the United States’ response? They declared war on BMW and Audi! They told everyone that Audi was “harbouring mechanics” and that the CEO of BMW was making “engines of mass destruction”. Even though there was no connection between Porsche, Audi, and … Continue reading Remembering 9/11: What Happened And Why?
Stomach cramps and pre-menstrual tension apparently aren’t a problem for Post Malone, who in his song “Motley Crew” tells us he gets “the calmest periods”. Post lets the listener into his trick to getting a light menstruation, and apparently it’s down to wearing an old-fashioned sanitary belt and resting in an up-market Las Vegas hotel whilst covered in ice cubes. Posty sings “Count up the … Continue reading Behind The Lyrics: Motley Crew By Post Malone
It really amazes me how I come up with my ideas, and no, I’m not just about words sounding the same, I get excited about things sounding the same as well – it’s blooming hilarous! Today’s idea is a sequel to the Taken franchise with an all-important product tie-in, which of course has to be a Porsche Taycan. The film will be called “Taken 4: … Continue reading Tie-In Product Idea: Taken 4 Starring Liam Neeson And The Porsche Taycan
As always, the Government is right! COVID’s everywhere… so be aware. I found one COVID virus waiting idly by a tree, probably waiting to pounce on a passer by (It’s bigger than on TV). Being an investigative reporter I had to ask it some questions. With my Mic 2 metres away and mask fully on, I asked it why it was so eager to get … Continue reading The Coronavirus Is Still Out There: We’re Not Even Safe In Our Streets!

Remember Tom Cruise in American Made? He played real-life cocaine smuggler Barry Seal as a lovable anti-hero. Since Hollywood likes to turn illegalities into entertainment, how about a similar film about Jeffrey Epstein? Continue reading The Incredible Casting Crew: Chris Messina As Jeffrey Epstein
I bet you didn’t know that making a clone out of a clone is relatively quick. According to the film Multiplicity it’s like photocopying a photocopy which is speedy indeed. In their Harrogate laboratory, the Celebrity Clone Lab created Olly Alexander out of the DNA of Imogen Poots who herself is a clone. Produced 13 months after Imogen, the formation of Olly was pretty quick … Continue reading Celebrity Clone Lab: Olly Alexander And Imogen Poots

Look out folks! There’s a racist sentient cooking pot lurking about somewhere, a pot who gets off on bullying kettles. In this pot’s outdated mind, being “black” is apparently a bad thing, but wait, reports are coming in that this pot is itself black! What a nerve. So that means it’s a self-hating, sentient cooking pot who teases kettles, kettles which are mostly stainless steel … Continue reading Outdated Idioms: Pot Calling The Kettle Black

I’m chomping at the … Continue reading Covid Schmovid: Getting Back To The Old Normal
