In fact, this is a piece about amusing titles. I chuckled at Lord Bonkers’ Diary’s title:
…But I am one of that dwindling band of people who remember dear Fanny and her hubby Johnny – who was a sort of pre-Denis Thatcher.
And then I saw that title at least equalled, if not trumped, by this one on Political Wire, a US website by Taegan Goddard which is so engrained in my daily routine that I want it somehow represented (possibly on an outsized iPad) at my funeral:
(You could take that two ways if you are a reader of Urban Dictionary)
Numbered plastic locks included (which) allow wearer to go through metal detectors without setting off alarms
Well that’s the worst that could happen isn’t it? Go through a metal detector at Heathrow and the darned thing goes off like a Christmas Tree because one is wearing one’s male chastity device.
