The shortlist for the much coveted Turner Prize was announced today. The four remaining contenders who are hoping to bag a £12m fortune for their efforts are:

1. Pilemhigh and Crammemin (Architects) (Neasden) Ltd

The lucky winner will be announced in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and every year for the forseeable future. The organisers of the competition added that they had not yet ruled out awarding a £12m prize to each of the four shortlisters.

Personally, I think Ron should get it as he appears to be the only unlimited one of the bunch. Our ile could do with more people that take responsibility for their actions rather than hide behind them!
He gets my vote, Unlimited Ron.

What I want to know is where are they going to put the lifeboat?

Speaking of which, does anyone remember the days before the pier blew down when it used to sploosh into the water from a Thunderbirds style chute on the side of the superstructure? That tractor effort they tow it with nowadays makes Snaily look like Lynford flipping Christie.

Seems only fair to remember our ethnic sisters too and, were we to be PC, particularly remember those who are blighted with homosexuality.

Spammers again?
Could be one of those questions that you'd never ask in a gay bar, like "can I push your stool in for you"?

I didn't remove that 12:45 comment. Must have been someone who chickened out and removed it themselves.

Has anyone noticed Roger's latest move to be 'King of the Thanet Bloggers'? He's now styling himself as Thanet's Alternative Newspaper, and wants all local bloggers to notify him immediately of their jottings!

Call me vain, but do you think that's because I'm always beating him to it when it comes to finding the new bloggers in town?

Ah, having now read the large print on the deleted message, all is now clear!
All that hoo-haw with Patrick The Star Gazer reminds me of that superb Billy Idol song and, in particular, the line in it that puts forward "king blogger, king blogger, na-na-na, king troll"

The 12:45 comment was deleted by me as it was the same as the 12:44 comment.
