Tripped over the Velominati site recently, rummaging through cycle sites as one does, and rather enjoyed their roadie-centric, tongue-in-cheek The Rules. I especially like Rules 5, 9, & 10. Some of them are utter nonsense, of course, and like all things the whole thing should really not be taken too seriously.
A surprisingly nice Christmas song from Australian genius Tim Minchin:
He does get a few classic Minchin digs in (“the lyrics are dodgy” is a personal favourite) but it’s mostly a very nice song about family, holidays and such. The real meaning of the upcoming Solstice holiday, in whatever version most of us celebrate it, in other words.
Quite a change from my first introduction to Minchin, which was the F-bomb-laced, glorious and awesome “Pope Song”…
Anyone offended by the Pope Song hasn’t actually listened to the lyrics.
