The collected opinions of an august and aristocratic personage who, despite her body having succumbed to the ravages of time, yet retains the keen intellect, mordant wit and utter want of tact for which she was so universally lauded in her younger days. Being of a generation unequal to the mysterious demands of the computing device, Lady Bracknell relies on the good offices of her Editor for assistance with the technological aspects of her journal.

Curiouser and curiouser

As many of this blog's regular readers are aware, Lady Bracknell's editor - when she can be spared from her other duties - moonlights as a contributor to the Ouch weblog, borrowing her employer's name as a pseudonym in order to protect her true identity. To this end, the editor mounts regular full-scale attacks on Google, forcing its mighty engine to delve ever-deeper into its archives in order to disgorge items of potential interest.

Unable, for some reason, to sleep last night, the editor was up and about in the early hours of this morning, bending Google once more to her will. (A will which, it must be said, is almost as indomitable as that of her employer.)

Ouch being funded by the BBC, there are strict guidelines about what may be published within its pages. One of the editor's discoveries from this morning breaches those guidelines. Probably all of them, and probably in several different ways. Nevertheless, it is so entirely surreal that Lady Bracknell has decided to bring it to the attention of a wider audience than it has probably, to date, enjoyed.

Readers of a sensitive disposition should be aware that it contains foul language and images of disabled persons which may well be considered offensive. She offers no further comment on the content for the moment, preferring to allow her readers to detail their reactions via the useful comments facility.

Here is the link. Please remember that her ladyship has provided fair warning of its potential to shock and offend.

The Dude's comment on this was received by email, and may not have been intended for wider publication.

However, given that it made Lady Bracknell laugh almost as much as Katie's comment, it is reproduced below to cheer readers generally:


"You know how you spend your whole life wondering when you will find your dream job....?

I wonder if they do handicapped sumo for the larger crip ;<)

Yrs

Glad you liked it Ma'am. As Your Ladyship knows only too well, there's plenty more slightly dubious humour where that came from!
