“For the occasion, she [heiress Francoise Dior, niece of Christian Dior] wore a black and gold swastika necklace, encrusted with diamonds. They supped mead, toasted the British Nazi movement to the strains of the ‘Horst Wessel Lied’, and over a swastika-draped table, swore that they were of untainted Aryan blood, cut their fingers and let the mingled drop of their blood fall on to an open page of a virgin copy of Adolf Hitler’sMein Kampf.”

It’s about this time of night that I like to look at a picture of Susan Boyle singing a duet with a cat.
“My third oil painting of British Idol contestant Susan Boyle, this time featuring Susan in a duet with a singing cat. Susan has a cat named Pebbles, but this is not Pebbles. This is just some random, singing cat.”

Those nice people at Condomania now have a blog dedicated to their growing range of artist-designed condoms and related stuff. They also took me totally by surprise recently by commenting on this blog!
“We recently got the bright idea to gather together a bunch of working artists and ask them to design packaging for condoms which will both interest and excite our customers. This website is our attempt to document that process while also pointing out where others in the condom industry are doing things right, and where they are doing things wrong from our perspective.”
