Since no-one else has leapt at the opportunity to create a rod for their own back by volunteering to produce a
weekly roundup, I guess I now have to try and bring it myself (gulp!) To give me a faint chance of success, my
week goes Sat-Fri so I have the weekend to get it done. Guest contributors
This week sees the HalfBakery in a productive and benevolent mood with 70 ideas submitted and relatively
few fishbones on offer. The success of poetry and playful twisting of the familiar indicates that flights of fancy
are in the ascendancy, while rants, overextended jokes and derivative-sounding concepts were in the firing
line. Military history and puns drew the most annotation activity, supported by vigorously exasperated
commentary on the youth of today.
