X Rated


I bumped into affable despot Jason this afternoon.
This is a rare event for Jason is a self proclaimed hibernator who really only shows his face during the warm, sunny days of Spring and summer.
He looked well with his Cary Grant smile and floppy hair.
He's the nearest thing Trelawnyd has to a pin up.
Jason told me that at school daughter Eve's teacher had been discussing " blogs"
Eve apparently chirped up that her "friend" John wrote a blog about the village and suggested that the teacher looked for Going Gently on her laptop.
The teacher coughed uncomfortably and told the children that they would perhaps skip over this particular example of on line blogging as she had already looked at Going Gently ( presumably over a custard cream at break time)
" There's a bit too much swearing in it" she explained.

  6. How does the old saying goes? Some who can do, do. Some who cannot, teach? Not all teachers are created equal apparently, or as one of my professors would say "Well my dear, fuck her and the the horse she is riding on, so high is she that real life shouldn't touch her." I don't swear in public but let me hit myself against something (brand new knee involved) and I could make a sailor blush.

  7. ...and kids don't swear these days?

  8. I'll bet that 'bleeping' teacher reads every post and enjoys them all like we do. Bet she cusses too...lol

  9. The teacher, telling them that there is too much swearing here is music to their teenage ears - forbidden fruit is tastier. Now the entire school will soon be reading your blog. Greetings Maria x

  11. That's a standard we should all aim for. The X standard.

  13. Absolutely John, it's a bottomless pit of filth. Keep up the good work 😊

  14. Out of the mouths of babes, sucklings and teachers then it appears.

  15. I did a post on sex and used a rather graphic picture of a carved Hindu frieze to illustrate it one time and a reader informed me that her computer at work decided my blog was x-rated and wouldn't let her access it. and for months...months!...I got thousands of hit from people looking for porn.

  16. FUCK YEAH! keep it up, john! :)

  17. What a clever way to get every child in the class doing their homework ;-) ! !

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hahaha. If the children are still listening to what the teacher says, they're probably too young for your blog for lots of reasons.

  19. I know lots of parents who use foul language in everyday conversation.

  20. Well you aren't bad enough for my work to block you. And I work for Homeland Security. Once you get to the point that I have to read you from home the you know you've made it!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think you've made the big time, John.

  22. She's right. I'm absolutely shocked at the pure filth that permeates this scurrilous blog. Even my pet cat Tiddles is shocked and horrified when she happens to see it. We decent, God-fearing folk must unite to get it banned forthwith.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hahahahahahaha! You should put a notice on your blog banner "Not suitable for schools" lol!

    ReplyDelete
  24. That is so fucking funny!

    Tell Eve to mention my blog to the teacher. I don't swear (well, hardly ever). Oh, but I did just make reference to hand jobs... Never mind.

  25. Whenever you tell a kid not to do something..... looks like your blog could go viral!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I applaud Miss Jean Brodie for upholding professional standards. Swear words are most unpleasant and unnecessary as in the first jarring remark by the respondent before last.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Let's hope it didn't feature poo up the walls or fanny flannels!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Shit yeah! Too funny. BTW, is that a young Barbara Windsor in the photo? Where do you find these things?

    ReplyDelete
  29. As others have commented, she has just ensured that your readership will go up. And up.

  30. There's swearing on this blog? Since I'm in the US, should I have noticed?

    ReplyDelete
  31. As the ladies here in the South (USA) are known to say in polite company ... Well, I swear ! ...
    But I like to think that I am more NYer still when I say oh F*** off if you can't cope with a word ..

  32. It's sweet that the child thinks of you as her friend and not some gassy old poof.

    Love,
    Janie

  33. She's quite right; I would NEVER read it.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ooh, matron. Take them away!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Eve how sweet of her to recommend your blog John and to be called her friend, praise indeed.

    ReplyDelete
  36. No doubt all the kids were asking Eve for your blog address in the playground at break :-)

  37. I think Louis' ex philosophy and ethics teacher reads my blog. No complaints of being rude and sweary so far. x

    ReplyDelete
  38. I never thought of your blog as R rated, John, but more P (for poop) rated. Because the teacher pointed out there was swearing in your posts, I am sure many of the students raced home to read it.

  39. That Barbara Windsor shot took about 6 takes before she managed to clap her hands over her tits just as the top was whipped off with a fishing rod and line. I wonder what happened to the out-takes.

  42. Maybe PG-13, but nothing most of them don't say one a daily basis. One board I serve on has a new rule, "No F-bombs" that is going to be a real challenge for a couple of people on the board.

  43. I don't understand why people get so wound up with swearing. I cuss like a sailor with family but would never dream of swearing in front of "gentle" people.
    Actually, case in point, One of the ladies at sewing club yesterday speared her self with a needle and dripped blood all over the table, "Oh the blimming thing, that hurt" she said. I grimaced and got her a tissue. She's a gentle person.

  44. There are times where you've had "shit" in the blog title, and I believe "fanny flannel" has been there once or twice as well.

    I'm glad one of Jason's daughters thought to mention your blog. You tell of your community, warts and all.
