    "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."

Does a Bear Sit in the Woods?

Haven’t had a good corpsing video for a while. This Russian newsreader is attempting to convey a story about a bust at a Canadian marijuana farm.

Guarded by bears.

And a Vietnamese pot bellied pig.

And a raccoon.

The Weekend Waits – A Little Drop of Poison

Let’s hope that whichever team/religion/country wins the SPL at the weekend will be celebrating with champagne.

Hold the poison.


Overheard in Glasgow

A few bon mots (and a photo) from the Facebook Group ‘Overheard in Glasgow’

Victoria Park recently. Man walking Pug pup is asked “Haw mate, is that a dug?”, he replies “Of course it is, what did you think it was, an elephant?”.
“Naw mate, ah meant is it a dug or a bitch?”.

In the chemist waiting for prescription. In walks Methadone client. Chemist- “Are you here for your methadone?” Client -“Aye an’ mines the sugar free wan!”

Glasgow divorce lawyer to his female client: “Do you have any contact with your former partner?’
Client: “Aye, he sometimes pokes me”
Divorce lawyer: “So you are back together again?”

1st Ned – Why is that guy nicknamed `slasher`…is he a chib man or something?
2nd Ned – Naw he’s incontinent!

In Primark, a young girl on the phone to her mum, ‘They’ve only Goat a extra large, but the lassie says it wull stretch!

In McDonalds, Trongate. New-start reading the training manual says to another girl “How come Fanta isnae suitable for vegetarians? Is it cos it’s got oranges in it?”

Mind you, the former first minister is in no way the first Glasgow statue to become a repository for traffic cones. By far the best known one is the Duke of Wellington statue at Royal Exchange Square outside the Gallery of Modern Art.

Father of the Nation? (2)



AnElephantCant use the word hero
He knows such a burden is heavy
Over his many years
He has shed very few tears
But he bows his great head for our Seve

This man was much more than a golfer
AnElephantCant hide his admiration
He played with a smile
With flair and great style
His whole life was joyful inspiration
