Guardian F***wits

As part of the 2nd place victory gained by the website I used to help run www.bloc-online.com, the authors of the site were awarded a cheque for £250.

Minus the expenses from going to the awards, this money was going to be spent on a bar tab as part of a final party for the wonderful folk on my course.

However, the geniuses at the Guardian made the cheque out to www.bloc-online.com. Bloc-online is not actually a person. They seemed to be under the impression that this was the kind of operation that had a budget or an account to deposit said cheque into.

So, because I'm generous, great and a one day candidate for canonisation, I assumed most of the debt for the time being.

This has left me £160 out of pocket.

So imagine my delight on hearing that the cheque had been reissued, had arrived, and was ready to be cashed in.

One slight problem.

No one's actually signed it.




What a bunch of w*****s

Wait, I mean, shut up Phil.

Money seems to exist more when you don't have any.

Like sex

Money? Existing? Not getting any? These are age-old issues, and not ones that can be dealt with in the face of such appalling punctuation and clear issues surrounding the letter 'B'.

Sort it out (the issues, not the punctuation).
