I intended to post this yesterday, so it's weird that a discussion of animal testing has occurred on another thread....


About 35 years ago my three-year-old cousin was visibly upset when his mother gave him an open bag of M&Ms. "Why dey no wed wans?" he asked.

His mother, who was trying to read a book, said, "I don't know."

This didn't satisfy the little boy. "But ma," he asked again, "why dey no wed wans?" Once again, she said she didn't know. The kid persisted and after a few minutes he began to get hysterical. "Why dey no wed wans?? Why why why dey no wed wans??"

Finally his mother put down her book, looked him in the eye, and said, "Because the FDA has determined that red dye number-twelve has a likelihood of causing a form of thyroid cancer in laboratory animals."

The boy calmed down, paused for a moment, and said, "Oh."

Finding a video on YouTube containing a live recording of the entire The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway album in Groningen, The Netherlands. No video, but the sound quality is pretty good. And the buggers at YouTube (very likely) won't be remove the video for copyright infringement because it's a bootleg album. smiley

I have that bootleg on my iPod (the TM remaster!). Excellent recording, and what a cracking version of The Waiting Room! grin

Foxfeeder, Down, I saw the Dove ad and heard Hugh Dennis's voiceover!

I just saw a bit on the Chelsea Flower Show on BBC Breakfast and various celebrities have painted garden gnomes to raise money for schools to help children learn about gardening - I noticed Rob Brydon has done one.

I also saw a lovely write up of A Chorus Of Disapproval on his website - he portrays a director of an amateur dramatics society called Llewelyn (loved his Phil -type beard!).

Justin Bieber getting booed last night. Normally I don't pay much attention to this kid, but when you tell an audience " I'm an artist, and should be taken seriously", you come off as someone who shouldn't be taken seriously,IMO.

You earn respect, not ask for or demand it, dumbass! rolleyes I'm glad you got booed..... now take a hint,and grow up.

I didn't see that part of the show, but I understand the booing started when Bieber's name was announced and he hadn't yet gotten to the stage. If this is the case, I think that's uncool.

Now, I don't like Bieber or his music, and what little I know of his public behavior strikes me as the antics of a self-important little jerk. But to attend the Billboard Music Awards and boo a performer like Bieber--or Selena Gomez or Taylor Swift or anyone else for whom these award shows are designed to spotlight--is a little lame. I almost feel sorry for the kid. smiley
