Not to worry. It won't be long now until the big clean-up.

When a bloke in his age group uses stuff like that to talk himself up it doesn't go over real well - not with the decent men around - and they fairly smartly distance themselves.
It's the mark of a man with a horribly distorted perspective on life.

If a News Ltd journo wrote the way he does, he would be leading the charge to get them sacked.ReplyDelete

Bunyip, I don't think you mean "malodourous remains in the cat litter box" so much as you mean "over-hyped, under-sold, Fitzsimons-introduced books that, like their subject, sank without trace."ReplyDelete
That book was unreadable. Apparently he is writing another one. Is his publisher on acid?Delete

The full phrase is "sic transit gloria mundi".ReplyDelete
Usually translated as "Gloria felt ill in the bus on the first day of the week".
