From b3ta: motorbiking, politically incorrect but hilarious.

Steve Earle wrote a song attempting to examine what may have motivated John Walker, the "American Taliban". He has incurred the wrath of the right, but it's not as simple as they would have you believe.

More lunacy from Joel Veitch

They take their comedy seriously at some of the corpses are amusing. Seriously enough to have unearthed a transcript of a pilot for Brass Eye.

Talkingcock contains poems, funny bits and a questionnaire the like of which I have yet to see on the Friday Five.

Talking of which:
1. What is your lineage? Where are your ancestors from?
Fathers side from Irish tinkers who settled in Manchester, apart from the old man, obviously. Some Welsh and Irish on mothers side, but way back.
2. Of those countries, which would you most like to visit?
I forgot to mention a great aunt twice removed from Tahiti, so I will go there.
4. Do you do anything during the year to celebrate or recognize your heritage
I get drunk frequently.
5. Who were the first ancestors to move to your present country (parents, grandparents, etc)?
Gawd knows.

The legendary Half Man Half Biscuit are live on Andy Kershaw tonight. As ever it will be archived for a week.
