Could my date be a liar?
I once narrowly avoided dating a convicted criminal. A guy who was in jail for aggravated assault. Luckily I found out just at the last minute by Googling his name and finding local news story items about him. With a bit of digging I managed to put two and two together. I challenged my online suitor to be honest about whether he was the same person. He never replied – and that’s all the answer I needed.

It’s also claimed that sperm is produced at lower volumes during the hot summer months, and rallies in the cooler weather. Finally we tend to plan our births to coincide with holidays and time off and good weather. So that’s why the baby-bump is a familiar site in the summer months!

If you use Facebook you’re probably familiar with the ubiquitious Tesco Value Valentine’s Cards spoof. Classic stuff. But it seems this year Asda have taken the idea and run with it by producing a real value range of Valentine’s Cards.
Actually we’re not sure if this a joke, a spoof, an ironic dig at Tesco, or real. We suspect it is all of the above in part.
But you know what, we’re not sure if we actually care whether it’s real or not because we love it. Post-modern, ironic, smart, and kinda stylish. Want one next Valentine’s day. Just as long as is it’s not all we get.
