The Googler Did It

Google is celebrating Agatha Christie‘s 120th birthday. It adds a whole new angle to those ‘I’m feeling lucky’ and ‘Advanced Search’ buttons.

    Agatha Christie was home educated, a fact I just acquired inadvertently due to my being dragged up to Totnes Civic Square to meet with a bunch of people pursuing a similar path with their own offspring.

    “Well, that’s the debate over the merits finished,” observed my companion.

    “Rommel was also home educated,” I added in a loud voice, helping myself to a promotional fairy cake.

    “And do you have children?” asked the woman at the centre of this operation.

    “Actually, no. I am impotent. Thanks for reminding me.”

    “Oh, I am so sorry.”

    “No, I mean it, thanks for reminding me. I hate children.”

    The policeman.

    Apple technology just sabotaged the presence of the word ‘well’ in the above comment.
