Dancing Bush x 2

No, not everyone's reasonably-favourite Flash timewaster Dancing Bush Game, but our Great Leader having an awesome time at the Malaria Awareness day yesterday. He may be a ridiculous president, but his combination semi-doggy style and professional chimp expression dance is a thing of wonder.


OK then, Flash game it is. Make him strut his stuff cartoon-stylee below.

Blair not bothered

For those, who like the Poorhouse, managed to miss the infinite televisual broadcasts and immense net-wide dissemination of it, here is Tony Blair's meeting with Catherine "Lauren" Tate. All in the name of charity of course.


Toilet training

Well, according to the fantabulous if extremely distasteful B3TA newsletter, this video is on half the blogs in the universe at present. As of this moment the figure is presumably ((n/2) + 1).

Click "read more" below, sit back, turn the sound up and enjoy the following informational broadcast from Japanese TV designed to help the kiddies get potty-trained. It even makes those awful "mummy look! I'm a big kid now!" adverts here in the UK seem credible.

Online file conversion

The Internet is great for sending files around, whether they be documents, pictures, sounds, videos or any other such electro-data. What is sometimes less great is when the proud recipient of your favourite picture of your hilarious office antics, or chain letter that if you don't forward to 7 people immediately you will die a painful death, can’t actually see the file because they don't have the right obscure program needed to open it.

This problem is only exacerbated by the profusion of admittedly cool new technologies where for instance a Nokia phone can bluetooth a sound recording to your Apple Mac via a Palm PC and so on. Who knows what format that will turn up in, or how to open it? If horror-of-horrors you aren't even on your own computer the chances of you finding and installing a program that will let you convert such things is minimal. So luckily you don't have to any more, Media Convert will do it for you via the web.

Free "world cinema" DVD

The Independent newspaper in conjunction with play.com is offering free DVDs of a slightly more intellectual type than, for instance, "Showgirls".

Yes, this is another offer brought to you by every consumer's friend, Kat. Here you get a free "world cinema" DVD. Don't let the description put you off. Some of them are actually rather good, and the rest the Poorhouse hasn't heard of so may be undiscovered gems themselves.

Treadmills can be fun

Only the least Internet-enabled peons amongst you will not be aware and have witnessed one of the latest virals circulated around the email and blogosphere. Namely the band OK Go's gymnasium extravaganza "Here it goes again". If you've missed out, regardez vous below.

Treat your mother right

Quick! Before YouTube removes all vaguely copyrighted material, now is the time to refresh your memory about how much Mr T loves his mummy.

Apologies if it causes shock to any readers who thought Mr T was just one bad-ass mofo without a shred of respect for societal convention.

Not just chocolate pudding...

Doesn't look disgustingDoesn't look disgustingMarks and Spencers is a rather posher-than-average supermarket, currently most famous for its "Not just xxxxxx, M&S xxxxxx" adverts - if it doesn't sound over catchy it should be said that xxxxxx is replaced with the name of a tasty-sounding food product said in a near-orgasmic voice. The inspiration of many spoofs - for example "Not just Anthrax, American anthrax" would be an obvious one. Back in M&S land though, most notable of all is probably its chocolate puddings. Mmmm.

Shells of delicious chocolate sponge (so we're told - please feel free to send one to the Poorhouse for checking) which split open to reveal liquid chocolate lovliness, the advert does them proud. So much so that the campaign, directed by Steve Sharp ("It made you want to lick the telly!" he says, modestly), saw sales of the pud rise by about 3500%. It may even have begun the recovery of the troubled M&S.

Torturing Saddam

For anyone who's been wondering what's happened to Saddam Hussein, ex-dictator, torturer and all round evil-doer of Iraq, since he was purportedly captured, here's your answer.

He's been watching cartoons.

Everybody do the post 9-11 dance

Rizwan Ahmed, more commonly known as MC Riz (maybe) and from his appearance on Road to Guantanamo has released a new single entitled the "Post 9/11 Blues". It is fine, fine satire, and can be seen below. Although it caused - of course- controversy in the mainstream, the Poorhouse understands at least some of it has been played on Radio 1.

Apologies if the Poorhouse readers think the timing of the story is bad given the current security alerts in the UK, but then again maybe this song has relevance to them too?
