Hitwise research also shows that since the campaign's launch, hits on the website have increased, giving it the sixth-biggest share in the price-comparison sector. Bravo.
A soap factory has launched an investigation after a river running through a nature reserve exploded into a mountain of foam. WOOOO! But oh no, unfortunately dead fish and ducks have been spotted in the contaminated water after the suspected chemical spill.
The thick bank of suds - around 150ft long and 10ft deep - built up on a tight bend on the River Irk in Middleton, close to the Irkside Nature Reserve in Greater Manchester.
Walker John Purdy, 44, who lives nearby, said: 'It is quite upsetting. There's a lot of wildlife. It needs sorting out quickly. I've never seen it this bad before and I come down here three times a day.' (What's he doing by the river more than once a day...stalker)
And you thought Fallon had made a new Fairy Liquid advert.
Poor suds. Pardon the pun.
Apparently the lego looking house “it looks ridiculous and out of place and all the visitors it attracts are a real nuisance. You can’t park any more and there is no privacy. This used to be a quiet neighbourhood,” moaned neighbour Heidi Manning.
As long as they don't try to swallow it
As South Wales topped the league for anti-depressant prescriptions, experts said the £5.40 toll was not only more effective but would ease financial pressure on the NHS.
A spokesman for the British Medical Association said: "A course of Seroxat is fifty or sixty quid, but for just over a fiver we can get them to South Gloucestershire where they'd at least have a chance, dammit."
He added: "And for those who get halfway across and then can't face going on or turning back, they can always just jump off. If they survive, the estuary tides will no doubt take them on a thrilling adventure."
Welsh GP Tom Booker said: "There are other ways to combat depression, but getting some fresh air would force you to look at more Wales, while exercise would involve being trapped in a room with dozens of sweaty Welsh people.
"A healthy diet helps, but around here that's like asking for a honey-roasted unicorn in a bap."
He added: "The Severn Bridge was supposed to alleviate the suffering of thousands of people in South Wales, but instead they all just stare at it, calling it 'Satan’s river-stick'. They even sing songs about it. It's hateful."
The treatment of depression in Wales has advanced in recent years, with courses of prescription drugs replacing the traditional method of being whacked over the head with a sock-full of foxglove by a half-pissed druid.
From here. It made me chuckle enough to copy and paste it for a few more people to read. Poor Welshies
The weird and wonderful French tomorrow. That's where I've been hiding of late.
ENGLAND fans should brace themselves for tonight’s World Cup qualifier against Ukraine — they’ll have to stand through the world’s longest national anthem. The Three Lions’ opponents have been granted special permission to play the full 6½-minute version of Oi Ukrainy.
The FA has confirmed any supporter who sits back down or jeers during the performance may face ejection from Wembley before the Group Six clash. The Ukraine Football Federation usually plays a shorter version — just 90 seconds long — at games.
FIFA agreed to the extended anthem after the visitors claimed it would boost key players, such as ex-Chelsea striker Andriy Shevchenko and Liverpool flop Andriy Voronin.
FA chiefs are said to be unhappy at the decision. But they declined the chance to make Fabio Capello’s boys Wayne Rooney and John Terry sing all six verses of God Save The Queen. A Soho Square insider said: “FIFA gave us the option. But we turned it down on the basis most of our players don’t even know the words to the short version.”
Ukraine’s anthem will be sung by folk star Furstov Aprylova, who hails from capital, Kiev. It includes a tribute to Shevchenko: “No oil well could ever dig deeper for the great Ukraine than Andriy.” And in a dig at its former Soviet rulers, the tune ends: “Kiev, Kiev — there is no such thing as a Chicken Moscow.”
The Sun was having a little giggle here.
The REAL Ukraine Anthem (English Translation)
Ukraine has not perished, neither her glory, nor freedom,
Upon us, fellow--Ukrainians, fate shall smile once more.
Our enemies will vanish, like dew in the morning sun,
And we too shall dwell, brothers, in a free land of our own.
We'll lay down our souls and bodies to attain our freedom,
And we'll show that we, brothers, are of the Kozak nation.
We'll stand together for freedom, from the Sian to the Don,
We will not allow others to rule in our motherland.
The Black Sea will smile and grandfather Dnipro will rejoice,
For in our own Ukraine fortune shall flourish again.
Our persistence and our sincere toils will be rewarded,
And freedom's song will resound throughout all of Ukraine.
Echoing off the Carpathians, and rumbling across the steppes,
Ukraine's fame and glory will be known among all nations.
So can you microwave a Kiev in 6.5 minutes? or are we having the 90 second usual version tonight? Right, Moscow...
