A Little Silliness to Brighten Your Morning
HOW TO START EACH DAY WITH A POSITIVE OUTLOOK
1. Open a new file in your computer.
2. Name it 'Gordon Brown'.
3. Send it to the Recycle Bin.
4. Empty the Recycle Bin.
5. Your PC will ask you: 'Do you really want to get rid of 'Gordon Brown?'
6. Firmly Click 'Yes'.
7. Feel better ....?

I feel so much better now :-))
What's silly about that?
simple but effective :-)
Not if you have a Mac it won't! It'll just get rid of it straight out of the trash; saving a lot of time and effort.
I tried it with Boris Johnson. Thanks - works a treat !
Gordo's back from his hols.
Can you hear the attempts to res-start the "Good News" machine?
I hear these spluttering noises, then it dies - followed by 'Darling! - get some more news'.
It's rather like that quaint old practice of 'revving the bangor'.
By the way - watch out that creating a folder named 'Gordon Brown' does not trigger an otherwise undetected bug in Windows from wiping your hard disk.
This all in accordance with EC directive 07/341 'The harmonisation of the Jonah effect', as created in accordance with the fine-print details in the Lisbon Treaty.
Superb and infinitely applicable. Thank you iain.
Bad Idea Ian. Deleting a folder in the Recycle bin does not remove it from the hard drive. If you have been doing this every morning then I am sorry to inform you that your computer is now full of invisible Gordon Browns, that can be easily restored.
I don't want Gordon Brown to be recycled though. Perhaps David Miliband could be consigned at the same time!
Why no comments allowed on your later American Video blogpost?
I wanted to say something positive that I hope one on or two right minded Americans and Brits will read.
Sorry for spelling your name wrong. I have got FFS this morning. Thats Fat Finger Syndrome by the way.
Comments are open. You must be doing something wrong.
Before printing it, open 'Printer Settings' and greatly reduce 'Dither'.
Weird. I tried delete Gordon Brown but my computer came back with a message saying 'Error: cannot find Gordon Brown'.
Made my day!!
yMmm. Am sitting on a balcony overlooking Lake Como and am reading Bower's book on Brown.
It's just not funny.
The man's a malformed monster.
So jealous of anon at 4.01 pm - the lake Como bit.
Google "Don`t laugh at Spurs" and it says ...
"Do you mean -laugh at Spurs "
Well it did they have just changed it
Here's a better one. Next time you need to take a dump, call it "Gordon". Then once you've finished your er 'movement' you can flush Gordon down the pan.
If you now go to the Number 10 website and look at the cabinet page you now get a 404 Page No Longer Available Error.
So who is now running the Government? Has the reshuffle started?
