School Comedy

Congratulations go out to the BBC website for taking a normally serious column and comedifying it (is that a word? Not even the dictionary knows). Here’s an overlong teaser that doubles up as a link:

If we go any further down that road there is a danger that government will impose targets for improving the sexual attainment of head teachers, bringing demands for a whole new category of school performance tables. Perish the thought.

Merry Festivus

Well its that time of year again, and its worth putting up some alternative christmas links, for example this gem: its unfortunately about a year out of date, but combined with John Stewart this was one of the more amusing critiques of Fox’s attempts last year to claim that Christianity was under attack. Frankly I think one of the more convincing argument for using the phrase happy holidays is the potential to annoy Fox News Anchors.

Its also worth remembering that there are many holidays at this time of year, most notably Festivus . Another interesting read is the entry on pagan roots of modern festivals .
