Apparently it’s Daniel Davies Day today (even if the TV schedulers and sellers of greetings cards have failed to notice).
In tribute, I’m linking to his two best ever pieces: It was a wonderful headbutt and (allegedly, pseudonymously) Why the Bombings Mean That We Must Support My Politics.
If you don’t follow Dan’s writing, a) you should; b) you’re an idiot. Go here, here and here, and keep reading for the rest of the day…
This is good: spoof Tube announcements, from the woman whose voice is used on the real ones.
My favourites include “will the gentleman in the pinstriped suit“, and “passengers should note“…
The largest number of people ever carried by a Boeing 747 was 1,122.
NB while these passengers were Ethiopians, any use of 1980s playground jokes is nonetheless strictly frowned upon.
