Rant Of The Day THIS RANT 05/06/97

Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.

Hey man, wassup?

If it's possible to cheat on your own Web site, then I may be coming mighty close.

Regular Gusworld readers may have recognised by now that there is rarely a lot going on around this site at the beginning of the month. This is because that time coincides with the deadline for APC (the magazine that gives me regular employment and this courtesy Web space), and hence things get a little hectic.

This month, the situation has been even more pronounced than usual because, in addition to all the normal stuff going on, I've also been trying to regulate and enhance the content for APC's Web site, This has been kind of fun, but also kind of exhausting. I have now vowed to return to my first true Web love, Gusworld, at least in the mornings.

Anyway, enough about me, let's get back to music, gossip, popular culture and snide put-downs. Gusworld is already looking fairly tasteless today, so I'm going to pursue the theme further. What do these women have in common?

If you answered "they have really bad haircuts" or "they are grinning inanely", you are correct, but wrong. They all experience slight loss of bladder control on a regular basis. How do I know this? No, it's not what you're thinking. They actually all appear in a brochure for TENA lady, a complete fluid protection system for women. Don't ask me why I've got the brochure; people take a perverse delight in giving me this kind of stuff.

Even more tasteless, in a Franklin Mint kind of way, is 'The Duke', the first Official John Wayne Heirloom Collector Teddy Bear:

This makes about as much sense as a Frank Sinatra 'I Love Journalists' Collector Plate, or a Barbie doll that can stand of its own accord.
