    Most pointless news story ever?

    Now I normally like the Guardian online, but do people actually get paid to write this? I await the follow up with interest, "What can I eat for dinner".

    "....tomorrow in my blog, find out what i'll be eating for my tea (hint: cadburys creme eggs,....mmmmm ) and then on the next day find out what i'll be doing ON the bog IN my blog (hint: ejecting those prawn green slimy noodles from my cakehole....haha, see what i did there guardian unlimited fans - blog / bog geddit ?)..... by Vicky Frost"

    "p.s: aren't you glad i get paid a wage for being a completely pointless moo."

    unfortunately the quality of blogs is inversely proportional to the exponential rise in them by these media half-wits, who see it as a way to make a name for themselves....or for the like of Ms Frost to NOT make any impact on the world. I've seen blog posts almost as bad as this one...some of them from so-called technology writers.

    It's like most of the fffing crap out there these days - all facile twaddle. If it's not some over-salaried monkey wibbling on about food then it's one spewing forth garbage about fashion or celebrities.

    I had prawns for lunch yesterday - got some funny looks sitting on my bike peeling whole prawns! Mayonnaise? Nah!
