    "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."

F****ng Beer!

I wrote some time ago about the quaintly named town of Fucking in Austria and how it has the most stolen and replaced road sign in the world.

Now an enterprising German company are to name a beer after the town. In southern Austria and Germany light ale is known as “hell”. Using your skill and judgement, have a guess at the proposed name of the product which the EU has rejected a complaint about. Still don’t know? click here for the answer.

Thanks to Amo.

Erwin Wurm: House Attack (Vienna, Austria).

It’s an upside down house.

At a jaunty angle.

On top of a museum.
