Wheelchair Curling

[Picture of wheelchair curling sign]TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TRY SCOTLAND’S NATIONAL GAME.

This is what was printed on a sign in a local supermarket.

Scotland’s national game?  Wonder what that might be?  Golf?  Football? Rugby? Bowls? Darts? Fishing?

Nope — it’s wheelchair curling!

Since when has wheelchair curling been “Scotland’s National Game”?

This is not even “normal” curling — but “wheelchair curling” — and it’s not clear if you have to be disabled to play it!

Maybe one would be able to stroll along to sign up for wheelchair curling.  It’s an entirely strange idea, this wheelchair curling — I mean, have you ever seen a wheelchair on ice before?

Things are getting worse when your country claims to have wheelchair curling as its National game!

Child Seat Recall

child_seat_recallWHEN I SEE PRODUCT RECALL NOTICES, I ALWAYS WONDER ABOUT CUSTOMERS WHO DON’T OR CAN’T COME BACK TO SEE THE RECALL NOTICE — SUCH AS TOURISTS.

It is all the more chilling when it concerns a child’s safety!

Things are getting worse when notices taped to shop windows are considered as doing enough — why can’t the television news or newspapers carry a product recall section?

Valentine’s Fixed!

Flat Bottles

[Picture of sign on recycling glass bin]I WAS AMAZED AT THIS SIGN — STUCK TO A GLASS RECYCLING BIN.

It says:

“Please wash your bottles, remove all caps and lids and FLATTEN them when possible”

Are they serious? Flattening clear glass bottles?  I wish I had brought my hammer!

I understand the idea behind recycling, but I cannot fathom the rest of  it all.  For a start, these bins are an eye-sore.  The public seem to use them to recycle glass, but they then leave their plastic bags and boxes everywhere — what a mess.  Throwing bottles in is noisy, it is dirty and inaccessible.

On top of all that, some bins are for all glass — regardless of colour!  I have never seen anyone wash off the labels and remove caps — I do wonder what happens to it when it is so contaminated.  Is it all just an elaborate hoax or something?

Doll Parts

[Picture of Dolls with genitals]I WAS AGHAST WHEN I CLAPPED MY EYES ON THESE DOLLS.

I can see why these days dolls can be dark-skinned with curly hair (as long as it is not a “Gollywog”), but I see no need for genitals. I think that is perhaps in bad taste. Never mind that it is true, real or life-like. the fact is questions will be raised — far too early, and far too unnecessarily!

Even worse than the Scooby Do stuff in our post entitled “Shaggy By Name”

Yes, things are getting worse.
