Yum! Cultural Stereotype Fest!

Ooh La La!

The French have been voted the world’s most unfriendly nation by a landslide in a new British poll published. They were also voted the most boring and most ungenerous. The Germans have no to reason to celebrate the damning verdict. They came second on all three counts. Italy was voted the world’s most cultured nation with the best cuisine, while the United States was named the most unstylish with the worst food.

Paging John From Beyond

Idiot Morons Forever: a pay-per-view TV “seance” is set to contact the spirit of late Beatle John Lennon.

The programme, on US digital channel In Demand, will feature psychics travelling to sites of significance to the former Beatle, including the Dakota building in New York where he was shot dead in 1980. They will then assemble around a seance table, with infra-red cameras to capture any “presence” in the room.

Yoko Ono’s spokesman Elliot Mintz sums it up nicely: “A pay-per-view seance was never his style.”
