On yer bike...

I saw BBC news at lunchtime today and was amused that this story was one of the lead news articles.

Don't get me wrong, I'm really quite sad that the leader of the Conservative party has lost an "old friend" as he put it, but really, isn't there more going on? Like maybe a "political earthquake" somewhere....

This one did amuse me though - how New Zealand authorities differentiate between what names parents can and cannot call their children. They have a list of names which have been accepted and names which have been deemed unacceptable. Guess which are which:

Violence
Number 16 Bus Shelter
Midnight Chardonnay
Benson and Hedges (twins)

Yeah Detroit
Stallion
Twisty Poi
Keenan Got Lucy
Sex Fruit
Fat Boy
Cinderella Beauty Blossom
Fish and Chips (twins)

Kinda puts Apple Martin and Peaches Geldof in perspective doesn't it?
