Our favourite articles … which are yours? UPDATED
Of necessity, this is a collection heavily influenced by my personal proclivities. You will have your own favourites – and please suggest them. I simply provide this list because it becomes increasingly difficult to sift through a blog this size – well over 700 articles now – so these are some of the articles I like best, and I hope it helps.
There are lots more – I haven’t put any of the Advertising F*** Ups on here, even though they are very popular, indeed, they are always the most popular posts of all, and I haven’t put much of the political stuff, because it dates. But to find all the F*** Ups we’ve found, just put F*** Up in the search box top left of this page. Go on, you know you want to.

The best ad wot I never wrote. Pity. http://wp.me/p1LY0z-3K
Reflections on the judicial murder of Troy Davis, who was executed for a murder he did not commit. The case exercised the attention of this blog for months, and that of literally millions of other writers and campaigners around the globe. Nevertheless, they killed him. http://wp.me/p1LY0z-8Y
Pacifist dreaming – reflections on the arms trade, and soldiering, with a dash of vintage Donovan thrown in. http://wp.m/p1LY0z-7V
On Shakespeare, fine teachers, and Rowan Atkinson. http://wp.me/p1LY0z-lZ

Hilarious “true” trailer for Game of Thrones. Laugh out loud funny. http://wp.me/p1LY0z-25N
Well, I think that’s enough for now.
Do search away merrily on your favourite topics, you’ll find something.
To say this blog is eclectic is a bit like saying it’s hot in Melbourne in February – which it has been, this year, by the way – ten days in a row in the early thirties centigrade. Another heat record. Which might be why I am compiling “best of” lists instead of being genuinely creative.
It’s just too damn hot to think.
