Virtual Insanity

Private Eye is a satirical magazine that carries a mix of cutting edge journalism and very, very funny bits. A regular feature is "Solutions" - reader submissions of euphemisms or newspeak descriptions of businesses. When I saw this on a door in Jermyn Street, it took me a couple of seconds before I realised that a virtual reception was an entryphone. It amused me.

Sanitation engineer for refuse collection = dustman

Here's a topical one: In Celebrity Big Brother; young girls bullying another woman because they are jealous of her veritable natural beauty inside and out, her intelligence and grace = racial abuse. ??

Just in case it's lost on some, surely it's a case of abuse/bullying, that's not in dispute. The young girls are being really nasty to her, but there's nothing racial about it.

Don't know what on earth lynn is going on about -- quite forgot what my comment was going to be -- oh yes -- faced with such a faceless entrance I'd be tempted to try somewhere else, but if that weren't an option would have to put up with it.

How interesting. There is Private Eye and London Eye. Both means different things haha.. I linked my post to your London Eye post today :)

This seems rather Space Age - is it common there? I think not based on your written comments.
