Whats the difference between a duck?

August 19, 2015 Leave a comment

A few months ago I received the a Facebook message and the picture below from a good friend of mine. The key point of the below obviously being the title of this post.11186445_10153825492702080_2021548771_n


This is a “Joke” i have told since somewhere around my 17th (1997)  birthday when I heard it at a work do, a few doors up from where my mother still lives now when I was working at a One Stop in the local village. I couldn’t tell you who told me the joke but I can tell you at the time I found it hilariously funny and instantly committed it to memory to be rolled out at drunken moments throughout the rest of my adult life to great hilarity for all around!

Its perhaps the only thing that makes me laugh more than the Bungle scene in two pints (ill tell you about that another time)

What I now find bizarre is that with the advent of the internet this “anti Joke” has pages of Goggle results, in fact a guy named Michael Bluejay even calls it the finest joke ever written and a quick google search even throws up a you tube clip featuring Suits own  Louis Litt (Rick Hoffman) involved in a scene in which this becomes an interview question!!



Perhaps more weird is the number of hits on Google a search for the answer gets

In case you didn’t get it already the answer is…


One of its legs is both the same!

A Geeky fortnight and what I have learnt from it.

August 18, 2015 1 comment

Over the last two weeks I have been doing some serious geeking out, I have attended Gamescom, played in the Magic the Gathering Grand Prix London, finished Felcia Day’s Book “You’re never Weird on the Internet (Almost) and played a number of PC games including Castle Crashers and Trine 3.

Its been a while since I have had an opportunity to get back to the geekier side of my nature, Joe has been almost surgical in his ability to coincide head injuries and bugs with any “Daddy time” that I manage to carve out for myself.

The only thing I have really found time for is my League of Legends obsession as playing it is normally post Joe’s bedtime and doesn’t require me leaving the house, however the enjoyment I have got out of the last 14 days or so doing other activities has really highlighted to me that I need to be utilizing what time I do get more effectively, whilst I thoroughly enjoy (and despise at the same time) my games of League they are as much to blame if not more so than the impact of any of my Daddy duties.

I realised when i finished Felecia days book that it was only the second one I had read this year (unless funnybones, Thats not my Dragon and Each Peach Pear Plum count), for someone who loves reading and books as much as do this is pretty depressing, I could come up with many excuses such as the fact that I no longer drive to work and drive instead and they would be pseudo true but realistically I haven’t read more than that because I haven’t allocated time to do so.

Whilst playing Trine and Castle Crashers over the weekend and discussing with a friend the merits of various indie titles, it became apparent that I was missing out on a number of really good games and needed to pay my steam account some serious attention (I haven’t even played Portal yet!) A quick look today showed I have 112 titles in my steam library and I have played 5 of them!!

Over the coming weeks I am going to scale back the league and knuckle down on some of my other hobbies and who knows maybe even take a stab at keeping this site ticking over, after all if I am letting my other geeky past times slide I am sure you can imagine how well the writing is coming along….
