Val posted this yesterday so some of you will have already seen it, but for those of you who don't have the good fortune to be on her friendslist I must re-share. It is important that as many people as possible see this.

The Oddest Book Titles

Application of High Tech Squids?

Lesbian Sadomasochism Safety Manual?

Versailles: The View From Sweden?*

Oral Sadism and the Vegetarian Personality?

Explosive Spiders and How to Make Them?

...Penetrating Wagner's Ring????

I DON'T KNOW. YOU TELL ME.

* This does remind me of a moment at Arlanda Airport which Val may recall... "Somehow I always thought it would be bigger."

I keep thinking that the way in which Phoenix Wright appeals to me is broadly similar to the way Asterix appeals to me. The puntastic names and the odd humour and oh man. If Goscinny and Underzo had been ordered to make a videogame about lawyers...?

I don't really have a point, I just thought you might like to know. I'm not sure why I thought that.

(I'm getting towards the end of Justice for All, anyway.)

Heinz pulls ad showing men kissing

...right. Because here in the UK we like the USA so much we want to become it. I forgot for a moment there.

I saw the ad on TV the other day, actually, and though the ad overall gets a pretty big *shrug* I thought it was sort of neat that the implication of homosexuality was acceptable here on daytime advertising, in however jokey a sense. Except. Apparently, not so much.

(Also, the difficult problem of parents having to discuss the issue of same-sex relationships with younger viewers? Really? So this isn't actually about your own discomfort, it's all about the children. Of course.)
