The Acid Pen


I found this piece in one of my old log books, from my Australia youth.
I'm not sure who wrote it or why! my bias tells me its either to or from a politician.
Is it a bit of humour? or just down right rude! you decide for yourself.
I must have thought it had some merit, when I copied it into the notes page of my log book all those years ago and I still think it deserves re-airing before it fades away into history, so here go's.

"He writes the worst English that I have ever encountered.
It reminds me of a string of wet sponges; it reminds me of tattered washing on the line; it reminds me of stale bean soup,of college yells, of dogs barking idiotically through endless nights.
It is so bad that a sort of grandeur creeps into it.
It drags itself out of a dark abyss of pish, and crawls insanely up the topmost pinnacle of posh. It is rumble and bumble.
It is flap and doodle. It is Balder dash.!"

Please don't say it describes my blog! I just think its so cool.



  1. Whoever wrote it was quite smart, I think.

  2. Yes I agree there is just something about it! Thanks for your comment Donna Agman.
