A brief detour

I promised myself when I started this blog that I would not post unless I thought I could add some value to some discussion somewhere.
Of course, the inevitable result is that this blog sees a new post only slightly more often than we see a new Pope.
So, now we will break with tradition and introduce a post meant only to point and giggle.
Paul Ford is always a hoot, but he has outdone himself here.

Of particular deliciousness is the fact that, at the time of writing, B2Day still has not twigged to it.
As if that were not enough to sate the most avid comic appetite, he finishes with this:

I remember the sweet day when I replaced [this image] with [this one], thus confounding a few corporate websites.

Aw, jeez, now I have to replace the upholstery again. And yes — buy the book.

Update: Someone at B2Day finally noticed the fun that was being had at their expense. Erick Schonfeld has restored the original cartoon, this time with a copy under his control, and has belatedly acknowledged Paul Ford as its author. In the process, he also deleted all the comments about stoats, etc. Appropriately enough, you can still find them at the Google cache.

    Hee, hee!
    True enough.
    Actually, there are several climate-related posts I really want to finish, but (compared to making fun of homoeopathy, at least) they are so much work!
