Watch the fat man bite

In that awful 'The Big Read' thing that the BBC did recently The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy finished really high up. I found those books a bit annoying; like eating a big bag of sweets that you enjoy at first but soon notice they all taste the same. Still, it was funny in places, and it just made me laugh again when I read that they're making a big budget film version starring.... Martin Freeman (Tim from the Office) as Arthur Dent and.... Mos Def as Ford Prefect! Mos Def!!!! Well, if you're sure :-)

But make another album first, hey?

Just been reading the Guardian's Rumour Mill, and couldn't help liking the following:

"Kevin Pressman has rejected a move across the Steel City to Sheffield United, not because joining the city's other club is an obvious no-no, but because he can't be guaranteed first-team football at Bramall Lane. Neil Warnock should just dangle a pie on a fishing line over the stout stopper's house, then watch the fat man bite."
