    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

Great Headlines of Our Time

There was some chat this morning on Radio Scotland about it being ten years to the day since the  “Super Caley go ballistic Celtic are atrocious” headline in the Sun following the Parkhead club’s exit from the Scottish Cup at the hands of Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

However some of the funniest headlines are almost unwitting. What about this one from this morning’s Independent?

  1. The Super Caley headline was great – and looked awesome framed behind the bar in Gellions Pub in Inverness – but someone dug out a reference to 60s Liverpool player Ian Callaghan which had a previous version – something about Super Cally Goes Ballistic..etc etc.

    maybe just as well that I can’t find that reference, given my previous plagiarism comments re. Kid Rock being shot down in flames!

  2. Famous Liverpool FC headline
    God hits the post but St John nets the rebound

  3. I think that chinchillas are really cute.
