And talking of Manchester ......

A drunken Manchester football fan dialled 999 and demanded to speak to ex-manager Sir Alex Ferguson to complain about the previous nights football result. Telling the call handler "The result is all wrong, they had extra time and it was a total and utter load of rubbish." when asked if he wished to report a crime he replied "Yes, a crime. I want to report a crime. The crime is that Manchester United were absolutely knackered." FULL ARTICLE

I endorse the Church of England Social media commandments. They do make sense.
However a bit worried about the social impact of the stolen Viagra

Kelly said...

The Twitter commandments are good, common sense in general.

The fat cow article was quite interesting.

My favorite, though, was the last story with the old folks reenacting the movie scenes. Wonderful!

That would be so weird to eat pizza with faces on it!

The Twitter Commandments are great guidelines for tweeters! I still have a few articles to "check out" but I think my favorite will be the same as yours, the last one in your terrific post. Happy Monday, Tracy!

I like the Twitter Commandments. :-) Most of them seem quite fitting!

Naked Sledding World Championship. Being naked in cold weather never sounds like a good idea to me. LOL

Cannibal rats are just frightening.

Poor fat cow. :(

Hm... shoppers like vultures? Na, never... *cough* LOL

Hi Tracy,

As we live equidistant from both Bath and Wells (approximately 10 miles from each), I was particularly interested in the article about 'The Twitter Commandments'.

They are actually a perfectly reasonable set of rules, which would make this particular message board so much better if they were enforced.

Given some of the mindless drivel which is posted, they certainly can't make things any worse!

I especially liked this phrase ...
"Social media updates are immediate and will outdate quickly BUT they can have a more lasting impact and you should assume that anything you post is permanent,"

Thanks for featuring this newsworthy story and have a great week.

Yvonne.

That ghost ship and the rats have been a subject of interest for me and several of my friends.

I have heard that there may be several such vessels floating out there. I am thinking that perhaps they might provide very affordable housing...

Love the Twitter Commandments! And while it sounds funny, I don't know if I could eat wedding pizza that's looking at me as I'm eating it! *shudder* That's almost as scary as the ghost ship with the cannibal rat crew! :o

Gina R said...

Okay, some of those even in headline form are still SCARY. *-*
