How To Destroy TI

NOTE: We live in very sensitive times, and the BBC would like me to point out that playing with matches is a very bad idea. In fact, here's some information about how best to protect the young people in your life (or indeed, yourself) from fire.

We would also like to say, for the record, that you should only attempt to destroy T.I. if you absolutely HAVE to, if you can somehow cram him into a proper fireplace, and if you have a bucket of water handy, in case of accidents.

How you achieve this is up to you, but please don't go and fetch the matches if you are too young to do so, and even if you're not, just wait until you are absolutely sure that you will need them. It's fine to destroy T.I. - presuming of course that he has done something horrendous and deserves to be destroyed - but it would be awful to destroy your home in the process, now wouldn't it?

    Oh dear. Three weeks off and this is it? This just won't do Fraser. I thought maybe you'd finally seen the light, but alas the struggle continues. Sigh.

  • Comment number 2.

    I know! You'd think I'd have got the message by now.

    It's almost as if the full weight of your opinion is having very little impact whatsoever. But that can't be right, can it?

    Fraser FTW! :D

    It's true my opinion probably has very little impact on you, but I think we'll agree to disagree on whether that is as a result of my failings, or yours. At least our little to and fro injects some life into proceedings, life clearly lacking from your 'humourous' blogs. It even coaxes some comments from the otherwise uninspired masses, which is all very nice for you.

    FTW!... or something else inane.

    I happen to enjoy this blog a great deal, in fact, I'd go as far to say (and I know I'm really pushing it here) I find it more than 'humorous'. Furthermore, if I was going to be truly 'inane', (or is it pedantic), I would be pointing out that 'humourous', as you so quaintly put it, is in fact spelt humorous (and I refer you to several major and reputable dictionaries at this point). The fact is that I wouldn't be mentioning your slight error if it wasn't so obvious that you are a over-opinionated troll (I refer you to a certain free internet encyclopedia "is someone who posts controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in an online community" who clearly delights in posting rude and obnoxious comments, which are useless in every way. The only thing that irritates me more than your comment is that I have been drawn into writing a snappy response on an otherwise cheerful blog.

    Do not feed the trolls


    Oops, too late!!

    Apologies for the spelling error catman231, it clearly upset you and I apologise for causing you any undue stress. As for being the 'troll' you so quaintly (hang on... q, u, a, i....yeah that's fine) described, I must take issue. 1.) "controversial": Not really, just said it wasn't funny. If that's controversial, then the whole freedom of speech thing is a big lie isn't it? Is that the world we would like our children to grow up in? "inflammatory": Not really inflammatory either. Fraser has proved that he can take criticism in good humour (hang on...h, u, m...yeah that's fine as well), kind of a pre-requisite for lasting more than three minutes in journalism. It’s not insulting, just my opinion (which brings me onto a side issue - how can someone be over-opinionated? Everyone has an opinion on everything, the price of eggs, the right politician, or whether something is funny. It just doesn't make sense. And besides, I only expressed one opinion. Is one too many?). Again, if that’s inflammatory…big lie…children etc. "irrelevant"/"off-topic": Well since I was talking to the blogger, about the blog, on the blog, I don't think this holds up either.
    In fact the only item on this blog that meets any of those criteria is you calling me a troll, which I found (slightly, for the purpose of argument) inflammatory. Therefore you, sir, are the troll.

    P.S. - Don't get irritated writing a 'snappy' response.

    P.P.S. - Oops, too late!!
