Sunday Round-up

My round-up of news, events and stuff and nonsense from the last seven days.
If it’s news to me, it must be news to you!

I may not be quite up to date with my Sunday Round-up this week as we are away over the Easter weekend.

Love a duck: Widespread panic in households across the country after researchers found that rubber ducks and other bath toys can contain ‘potentially pathogenic bacteria‘. And speaking of hygiene, here is why gyms can be unhealthy places.

Groundhog Day: Punxsutawney Phil is wanted by the police in Pennsylvania for deception after failing to predict the end of winter.

Has beans: One of the oddest tourist attractions you’ll find in Wales is the Baked Bean Museum of Excellence in a two-bedroom flat in Port Talbot, run by Captain Beany, which has a five-star rating on Trip Advisor.

Speaking of food: American company Bo’s Fine Foods has come up with solid slices of tomato ketchup so that your burger bun won’t go soggy.

Sticky problem: A maths professor at Cardiff University has worked out that the cost of completing your collection of Panini 2018 World Cup stickers will be more than £770.

Crackers: Another link to the wonderful Craig Brown column in the Daily Mail in which he reveals thirteen things you didn’t know about Jacob Rees-Mogg, including that he was originally named Jacob after the savoury biscuits Jacob’s Cream Crackers and that he dropped the ‘cream’ and ‘crackers’ when he stood for parliament.

Bare necessity: What better way to brighten up your home than a statue of a naked Donald Trump which can be yours for just $30,000.

Speaking of Trump: A spoof ad to recruit a lawyer for a Washington-based ‘difficult client’ appeared on Craigslist.

Brief lives: Author of the Bernie Gunther novels Philip Kerr; war veteran and magician Fergus Anckhorn; winner of the first Eurovision Song Contest Lys Assia and; Linda Brown who was at the centre of the case that ended racial segregation in American schools.

    Donald J. Trump seems to have an exceptionally small penis. Enlargement could be achieved with a metal clip, a chain and a carthorse. Needless to say I shall not be spending $30,000 on the statue as we already have three garden gnomes with much bigger penises and far more humility.

    You write more about DT than I want to think about…
