It's ririchardulous that people are complaining about Spotted Richard (and Tuesday letters). I richardtated a letter on my richardtaphone to inrichardate my displeasure but my secretary informs me that my richardtion is not very clear, so I told her she shouldn't abrichardate her responsibilities and should use the richardtionary to check any spellings. I certainly feel vinrichardated, and derichardate this message to anybody out there who feels like richarding about with the English language.

Perhaps the word should be removed from the Richardtionary.

A few years ago I was browsing the desserts menu in a popular pub chain, and had to look twice after seeing "Raisin-Studded Richard".
"Dermatologically-challenged, non-gender specific Richard", surely?

Sharing a bed may not be conducive for sleep? Judging by the picture, that seems to be the point.

It's another one of those contrasting stories days. On the one hand, we're encouraged not to make frivolous 999 calls; on the other hand, we're being encouraged to pretend to mug each other to test public reactions. Presumably, this includes a host of spurious 999 calls to report said pretend mugging.

As usual this morning I went straight to the BBC News front page and who should I see? Drunk Girl. However, when I tried to click on the link to the story I got the message "could not be found". I hope she's OK.

"Among the questions straining Web Monitor's cerebral cortex today..." - should that be cerebral or cybereal? As I assume Web Monitor is non-carbon based life form, I vote for the latter.

Talking of Enid Blyton's 1940s (Tuesday letters), I was in the new branch of the Ginger Pop shop in Poole last week and bought some Noddy cards (don't ask) and some World War II replica pieces. Considering all the 70th anniversary commemorations for start of WWII last week, don't you think it spooky that the bill came to £19.39...?

Re Chimps 'catching' yawns from cartoons - was I the only one who yawned when reading the article?
Tut tut Paper Monitor, how on earth did you manage to miss this headline? (More details - Guardian)?
The one with "bottom" in the last paragraph (Tuesday letters). Sheesh, some people...

Monitor note: Thanks, don't mind if I do.
If the Magazine is already online (i.e. it's an online magazine), then what's the advantage of following it on Facebook?
My daughter has finally returned to school after a mammoth 12-week holiday. I no longer have an excuse to make fairy cakes.
Monitor note: Fairy cakes are a favourite here at Monitor Towers, if you need a new excuse...
