Am I the only one who thinks there's a certain glory in the phrase "full blown AIDS"?

Subject: Pam Ayres as Bond
This is ludicrous. Pam could be recruited to integrate into "hippy communes" or the River Cottage set in the home counties but she would be lost in London. I would choose Nicole from the Renault ads, the cheeky scamp! Best to film on location in Paris, Monte Carlo and south Birmingham for that glamorous ghetto noir feel. Also, when you reach 40, should you leave skids in your pants on most days. This not a question. Looking for penpals as well, no "lifers", esate agents or playboys. Thankyou.

Do you like rowing*? If you do, maybe we could meet for drinks sometime? I'm a bit busy with the Samuel Windsor promotional at the moment, but I should be available come July.

Subject: The James Cracknell Limited Edition Deck Shoe
I'm James Cracknell.
When the guys at Samuel Windsor asked me to endorse their limited edition Deck Shoe, I jumped at the chance.
It's made from beautiful Italian leather, and the sleek moccasin silhouette is enhanced by simple stitch detailing, contrasting white leather laces and completed with a slip resistant sole.
Why not buy two pairs? For the most striking look, choose blue, white and brown. And for greater versatility and more sbutle styling, team the blue and brown pair with work wear.
That's all for now. I'm off for a quick row!
All the best,
James Cracknell OBE

Subject: Looking for freedom
Just watched the Hoff video at www.strongindenim.co.uk.
15 seconds in, a woman in the background nonchalantly tosses her duster to the ground. The symbolism here is enormous; Hasselfhoff not only brought democracy to Iron Curtain nation states; he also freed a generation of housewives from gender based domestic suppression.
Subject: Strong in Denim
You've described Geldof as sporting a triple denim combo. I'm not sure the trousers *are* denim. They are a dark material so could be cordoroy. The Bonnie Tyler clip, I grant you, is a real triple denim combo. There's no ambiguity there.
Subject: Schindler's List 2: Back to Birkenau
Just watched 'Schindler's List 2: Back to Birkenau' on DVD. Full of genuine 'laugh out load' moments. Funny, I don't remember it getting a cinematic release.
Anyway, it joins that elite group of film franchises (which include 'The Godfather' and 'Weekend At Bernies') where the sequel is actually *better* than the original.
Shane Richie as Amon Leopold Göth is hilarious.

There's nothing wrong with chimney sweeping. I spent the summer of 1962 half way up a georgian chimney breast. It made me the man I am today.
If you've been on income support for more than 6 months, then you should be forced up a fireplace, even if you are claiming 'disability' benefit.
'Disabled'? I think the word you're looking for is'workshy'.
Subject: Fig relaunch
"It was re-launched in 2011 with a new look-and-feel, more interaction, and with slightly fewer jokes about poo"
Please can we have less 'satire' and more jokes about poo, please.

I think if you take out the poo jokes you are basically just left with crap!
