I bought a man-bag earlier today. And I'm not even a man. Overall, though, I'm pleased with the results. Apart from not quite having figured out where to put the PDA yet.

I'm sure I'm not the only one to be thrilled to discover that Demon Ducks of Doom ("Very big birds ... more like ducks, earned the name 'demon duck of doom', some at least may have been carnivorous as well," Hand told ABC radio) form part of Australia's extinct megafauna. The BBC preferred to focus on flesh-eating kangaroos.

Following on from yesterday's fun with the press I was amused to catch up with Susie Bright's depressing run-in with Cosmo (they were after a sex tip). "They thought improving your sex life meant impressing a man, rather than making a significant erotic impression on yourself." she laments. The upshot was this: How to ruin your sex life in twelve easy steps. There are also some fun write-ins in the comments.

Speaking of which:

Dear Ms Dennis,

Thank you for your email, which i am forwarding to the editor of Observer Woman.

With best wishes,

P.S. Parasitic Advertising: artist paints bugs, is lambasted for cruelty, getting logos wrong.

wows at the sticker insects.
Hope yer piece on the padded one gets noticed, and she doesn't run to the tabloids denouncing you as a sorceress.

likewise, well done for sending the excellent riposte.
And painted insects - what's wrong with photoshop. Oh, wait, ... I don't think that slug was actually dragged through the logo trail.

"if it's not a man-bag, it's a purse"
a lot of them seem to be on sale, for some reason ... mine is from Accessorize men, the metrosexual's friend.

Sigh! The cruelty complaints might be more convincing if they weren't along the lines of OMG UR SO MEAN!

Ha! On how to ruin your sex life, points 5 and 6 made me laugh out loud, but then I read theladiesloos community and that sort of wailing crops up fairly regularly.

Given my position as Great Killer of Mosquitos, Mothcrusher General and She who scares the Legs off Daddy-long-legs, I didn't feel I had enough moral high ground to complain. I was taken by the guy who painstakingly explained why the FedEx logo was wrong, though.

susiebrightblog does turn up gems from time to time but is also quite often not very safe for work!
