Wheelie bin row anger

In which I attempt to defend my funniest UK blogger title ...err... anger

Like sort sort of damn fool, I've decided to defend this blog's Funniest UK Blog title this year.

Here's the thing, the top prize is £100, and it's a nice round sum that - should I win - I might well give to a deserving cause. Possibly even somebody from these pages photographed pointing angrily at something, and deserve a little bit of redress. Hell, I'll even track down Sausage Lady and pay her back for the light ribbing she's been taking on this site.

So. Get across to The Dog's Doodahs and nominate this (or any other) blog or comedy social media account. LET'S DO SOME GOOD.

Stolen tools anger

Derby Telegraph: Crime victim sees his £20,000 of stolen goods on sale on Gumtree

So, no buying them, arranging a local pick-up, and taking some hefty friends along to seal the deal then? Not that we condone that kind of behaviour because that would be WRONG.

Shopping delivery anger

Fleet News and Mail: Asda got our online shopping delivery wrong and we've waited two weeks for a refund. Also, they crashed into our car

1. CARPET SLIPPERS KLAXON

2. I love the fact that this story is more about getting casserole mix instead of stir fry mix than having their car totalled by the delivery driver.

Stuffed parrot anger

South Wales Evening Post: Woman and her parrot don't want local attraction to close

However, the council leader and his stuffed cat are all for it.
