An Almost Perfect Blogger

“A lot of bloggers seem to be socially inadequate, pimpled, single, slightly seedy, bald, cauliflower-nosed, young men sitting in their mother's basements and ranting.” BBC Political Presenter Andrew Marr 
Sir, Assuming that you are the serious journalist you claim to be, not prone to easy stereotyping and particularly careful in providing opinion only on well researched and fully understood subjects, let me suggest that you do change your circle of friends, as it can only improve... aren't you just a little too old to hang around "a lot" of pimply people? 

By the way, if it weren’t for the lack of both your youth and pimples, you’d be the picture of a perfect blogger. 

And am I angry? No, even if I try, I'm just unable to be angry when giggling… sorry.


  1. If that is the description of a blogger, I wonder what we blog followers look like?

    Whatever discription you come up with, don't forget the pimples. Those are a must.

    I say that when we bloggers and you blog readers are deemed outlaws, anyone with a pimple should be locked away at once. And they're so easy to find: mother's basement!

  3. Oh, dear! My mother doesn't have a basement! She does have an attic though...will it do?...

  4. 'Andrew Marr is a snobbish, elitist, jug-eared cunt.'


  5. Andrew Marr e o seu auto-retrato. Para com ele fazer parelha, so a querida amiga Kate cujo emprego actual e 'surfar na Net' a procura de quem diz mal.

  6. If we could rely on newspapers for honest, courageous reporting, maybe we wouldn't need to blog to reach the truth.

    Spot on!

    Bloggers don't concern themselves with what effect blogging may have on their income, media profile, next job or whatever. They are allowed to speak as they find.

    The media should learn by example and listen and learn from the readers to guage what the readers really want. Readers want accurate,unbiased news reporting. Bloggers are able to do that.
