    Slipper of the Yard

    Wonderful article here by one of my favourite journalists/commentators, Mark Steyn: “He was always affable and very much a gentle giant,” said Bruce Reynolds. “He was one of the old school,” agreed one of Mr Reynolds’ colleagues. Gentlemen publishers? Art dealers? Yes, Mr Reynolds has a...

In his post-match interview, Alan Curbishley told it like it is. He stated that their average league...

    I've been given a rather tricky commission by one of my clients today and I need a bit of help. I have to write a text message conversation between Rafa Benitez and Carlo Ancellotti for a kids football magazine and I'm a bit stumped. I'm probably the only person in the UK who uses proper...

    FAO Mods : Violent smilies.

    Why does Shrimperzone allow acts of graphic violence such as :thump: , :guns: or :flamer: yet prevent me from calling someone a ****, a ****** or using **** either as an expletive or as vulgar slang to describe the physical act of love?
