Lunt The Cunt

What a horrid title for a blog entry, but you see, it’s really not my fault. I refer you to the original article if you want, but I shall summarize this here. It’s a riot.

Anyway, the city of Lunt is having a problem with graffiti artists changing it to the city of Cunt. The charge is being led by, I kid you not, Mister Ball. Ball and Cunt work well together, I’d imagine.

Residents in the graffiti-plagued village of Lunt are being asked to change its name to beat vandals. But the proposal, designed to combat yobs who repeatedly change the L to a C, has been met with fury by some locals in the rural community in Sefton, Merseyside.

Retired police officer Martyn Ball, a prospective Conservative councilor, is canvassing residents for their support for the change. Dr Ball, now a law lecturer, says he is fed up with the offensive graffiti which greets visitors to the village. He said: “We are all painfully aware of the repeated times our village sign is defaced by mindless yobs who change the L to a C.

“Drive in every day and you see a very offensive word.”

According to the New Oxford Dictionary of English, the offending word is Middle English, of Germanic origin, and is offensive slang for female genitalia or an unpleasant or stupid person.

In other news, amusing and way less offensive, we have the first automated restaurant ever.
It’s in Germany, of course, a model of efficiency. The clickable URL will take you to the full BBC story with video. I realize the Automat was first, but the food was pre-packaged and not cooked to order — Automat wasn’t really a restaurant. The short video is worth a look. I’d eat there.

Mom’s recovering from food poisoning so GET WELL MOM 🙂 I’d tell you all to call her on her mobile phone, but that would lead to a different story. For $20 I’ll tell you….
