Funny story: Book Review - The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

Book Review - The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

I loved this book and it had special meaning for me. Last week I flew from New York to Hong Kong and my luggage got lost. Three days later my suitcase turned up but I found out that my bag had been to Amsterdam, Paris, Sydney, Delhi and Rio! I had only packed boxer shorts, socks and a few T-Shirts. So my "pants" had indeed become travelling pants, they had traveled the world! So, I though...

Book Review - Captain Nemo: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the Mysterious Island

Captain Nemo: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the Mysterious Island Yet another example of how Hollywood can totally misinterpret classic novels. I read this book while in hospital, recuperating after an unsuccessful operation to cure my ignorance and stupidity. That though, is besides the point and a totally another story. Anyway, after reading the book I rented the movie and oh, how an...

Funny story: Movie Review: Hope Springs AKA Please Stop.

Movie Review: Hope Springs AKA Please Stop.

A tradition with my mother is to go see a movie together and then talk about it afterwards over tea or ice cream. I saw maybe two seconds of the trailer for Hope Springs and decided that it would be a movie that my mother would enjoy and I wouldn't hate completely. I was wrong on both accounts. *Spoiler Alert* Expectations: An elderly couple goes to marriage counseling and we all laugh...

Review: Rimmington Epilator For Men XS90

As the Spoof's premier reviewer I am sent those things to review that most reviewers would balk at. Today's review is no exception. It is the Rimmington Epilator for Men, model XS90, which replaces the previous model, the XS60. The first thing to notice about the XS90 is the array of attachments that come with it. This is an essential part of any gadget for men. Women are happy with a device...

Funny story: Review: More Existential Books

Review: More Existential Books

Just when I thought I'd finished reading all of the Existential books my grandfather had bequeathed me, it turned out I'd read nothing, and there was the box, full to the brim with books I'd not read. Having previously enjoyed reading the last lot of books I no longer had, I thought I'd give the new box a good seeing to. Armed with nothing more than a million candle storm lantern I had liberate...

Funny story: Review: My Existential Book Collection

Review: My Existential Book Collection

I recently came into possession of my grandfather's collection of existential books. The first book, entitled Something from Nothing was three hundred blank pages. I think that is my favourite. It's the kind of book you can dip into and get a good vibe off every page. I had to stop reading We do not Exist on account of my slowly fading from existence as I got to page fifty. I fear had I carr...

Funny story: Paul Morley Reviews The Next Big Thing

Paul Morley Reviews The Next Big Thing

It is morning. Escalating terrace of blank cloud. I put on the CD. How many times have I done this? How many times have my thoughts, in my head, run as a backdrop to the music that I listen to? Is my life a Godard film, soundtracked by the sounds I have heard since I started listening to music, me, in the grim 70's? If I could hold myself up, and look at my own thoughts, would I thin...

Martin Shuttlecock's Restaurant Review - McDonalds In Fareham, Hants

What do you do if you're ever stuck (nobody would volunteer, surely) in Fareham, Hampshire, having just signed off the dole after two weeks of not claiming benefit, but with a little time to kill? Well, you could head for West Street - you couldn't really head for anywhere else really. There's only West Street...

My review of Amor Triumfo (which is Spanish for Love Triumphs)

Normally, I watch Castle on Monday nights. However, tonight was a rerun and nothing else was on TV so I found myself watch the Spanish channel Univision and began watching this telenovela, which is a Spanish soap opera. I am fluent in Spanish and have lived in Mexico (seriously), but I have a hard time understanding these shows because the actors talk so fast. Here is the synopsis and review...

Funny story: Review: Language tapes

Review: Language tapes

As the Spoof's foremost reviewer I get to review some cool stuff. This month I was sent three Lingo language packs: German, Italian and Spanish. I would quite like to have learned Chinese, just to find out what the people in the Chinese Chippy were saying about me. I've never been very good at learning languages though. I even with English struggle. Lingo packs come in three parts. These are:...

Funny story: Review: Dating Agencies and Rabbit

Review: Dating Agencies and Rabbit

As the most dedicated reviewer for The Spoof, I occasionally get odd items requiring review. Most recently I was sent the latest in Rabbit's sex toy range: Thrust 2. However, after the disaster that was the Party Food review that led to my review of divorce lawyers, I have been reviewing local hostelries for the past few months and find myself resolutely single, with no way of testing the Rabb...
