Let's see how it goes over the next few weeks. It wasn't me asking for it to go on the blog by the way - the less you see of my ugly mug plastered over the site, the better for everyone I reckon! 9. Robokopthe3rd: Staying on the subject of my bonce...I have a reasonably full head of hair, save for a little skylight on top. Must get that pic changed. Glad your wife goes for the snooker ball look - think that's my cue to sign off.

I was born and bred in England (though Scottish ancestry on one side) and I certainly didn't take offence at it - in fact I found it rather humorous. If I thought it was in any way racist it wouldn't have gone in. As duncan (24) said, it's only banter and I honestly don't think it's offensive.

Did the power cuts mean that he couldn`t finish shaving his head? I am also a little curious mister charles...do you have a full head of hair? (no offence intended) Your picture is cut off at the top of your head. You will find more hair on a snooker ball than on my head...but my wife really likes it! Me, not the snooker ball.
