If you eat enough Beetroot, it makes your poo bright red, which, in turn, dies the water in the bowl a fluorescent pink. Don’t ask how I know; I just do.

Further to the recent discussion on the benefits of installing chips in the mentally ill (No, really; it’s on an official Government discussion paper. Look it up if you don’t believe me), comes my latest little ditty. And I know how you like little ditties….
In the news this week was the announcement that Sex Offenders are to be offered the option of Chemical Castration* (and to think I wince at the thought of a chemical peel). Anyways, it’s supposed to cut reoffending rates, but wasn’t that what they said about ASBOs?
Anyways, I’m unsure about the efficacy of the plan. Sexual abuse is as much about the power/control dynamic as the actual sex - which, whilst horrific, is often the first ‘wound’ to heal. The mental scars take longer. Much longer. Much, much longer. And it proves that you don’t need an erection to cause lasting damage. Ask anyone with a Catholic (or Jewish) mother.
Still, lighten up VB. It’s music Hall Friday. So here’s a little music hall ditty inspired by this weeks events….. (*although it doesn’t include anything about putting microships in the mentally ill, which is genius. Genius, I tells ya!)
