999: “Grey squirrels are not rare; it’s red squirrels that are rare.”

Posted by Tom Gidden on 26 July 2008

I think Avon and Somerset Police’s gripping exposés on 999 calls has been mentioned before, but they’ve moved onto YouTube now.

Among them, this classic, where the dispatcher wearily argues with the caller about the ratio between grey and red squirrels, and the lack of hazelnut trees along the M32:

While I’m sure it’s legally okay to publish these calls, I’m not utterly convinced it’s morally right: It’s clear that some of these callers aren’t fully compos mentis. It’s still quite entertaining, though… oh, and informative. Remember, kids: 999 prank calls risks lives, m’kay?

Bush or Batman?

Posted by Martin Poulter on 24 July 2008

Can you do better than these members of the public in distinguishing the sayings of George W. Bush from the sayings of Batman as portrayed by Adam West in the corny TV series? Here’s your starter: “Whether we bring justice to our enemies, or our enemies to justice, justice will be done”.

If you’re as big a Joss Whedon fan as I am (no you’re not – stop lying to yourself) then you’ll be exciting to find out about his latest venture. It’s in cute, digestible Internet pieces, and involves everything that is great and good in this world: singing, humour, Nathan Fillion, Doogie Howser, superheroes etc. See:

You get extra Whedon points for recognising the love interest.

Signs that a band will suck

Posted by Martin Poulter on 1 July 2008

Damian draws my attention to Chicago-based discussion forum Electrical Audio, which has been discussing warning signs of really bad bands as well as sure signs a band will be awesome. In the first category:

  • “Bands playing in front of a large banner bearing their name and/or “logo” cannot possibly be good. This is science.”
  • “If the bass looks like an endangered hardwood dildo, you know straightaway that something awful is about to commence.”

Signs of awesomeness:

  • “Homemade gear of some kind; A bass with one pickup; Tape on the guitars; Fingerprints, sweatsalt, and/or blood on the guitars”
  • “If the singer has a broken arm or broken leg it’s always a good sign.”
  • “One of the band members being butt naked. I’ve never heard this happening and the show being bad.”

DnC would like to hear your opinions on this. Log in to wordpress.com and add your comments below.
