I have learned that China is conducting anal tests for a faster and more accurate detection of the virus.


Governments often introduce unpopular measures by the back door. Nothing new there. 😁


And some governments like to butt into people's private matters more than others.

I could imagine that a rear admiral would be appointed for oversight of such a programme – or, in this case, perhaps rather undersight – to gain a deep insight before the patient is out of sight.

Ryan Gosling? Jan 28

Hands up those who would prefer Mervyn to refer to Clive Owens instead of Ryan Gosling when engaging in fantasy.

No one beats him Jan 28

I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I still prefer Alain Delon.

... in cinema, of course.

Clive Owen Jan 28

Clive was just on the phone, and he said if you can't spell him right, you can't have him!

(We then had a natter about the coincidence of me having married an Owens and fathered an Owen... and how good his TV series Chancer was at the time, and how dated it felt when I watched it again a few years ago.)

He also said you can have Clive James instead if you want.

Apologies Jan 28

At least I didn't include the incorrect spelling in the reply title.

OK, by popular demand, let's try again ... Jan 28

Health authorities in Mauritius announced this morning they intend to follow suit behind China, implementing the very same scheme as of tomorrow. Testing will be mandatory for all residents on the island.

Health authorities in Mauritius announced this morning they intend to follow suit behind China, implementing the very same scheme as of tomorrow. Testing will be mandatory for all residents on the island.

It was rumoured that Clive Owen and Keira Knightley had offered to travel to Mauritius to carry out the tests on women and men respectively as a gesture to sweeten the pill somewhat, along with Ryan Gosling and Alain Delon Jr as anal backup, and also Alain Delon Sr and the Osmond Brothers ready to bring up the rear in the event of an emergency. On learning that she, on the other hand, had no replacements at all, Ms Knightley withdrew at the last minute from what she described as "a bum deal".

But all of this, too, was merely fake news.

Always so obliging Jan 28

Many thanks, Mervyn.

I see you sweetened the deal by throwing in the Osmond Brothers. Those teeth are too shiny for me, but to each their own...

No shit, Sherlock Jan 28

I'm a Cumberbitch, or a Cumberbabe, so my choice would be Benedict Cumberbatch.

But I'm still partial to a bit of Clint Eastwood, even if he's ancient now, and a Republican to boot. Well, nobody's perfect.

Rear tests Jan 28

Did anyone anal-yse this new procedure in advance, or will it only be ass-essed in hind-sight, or should we say in the rear-view mirror?

Ils auront besoin de beaucoup de pro-fesse-ionnels.
