So Boy George's neighbor is named Tom Leonard, and he's a columnist for the Daily Telegraph who writes on the topic of fatherhood. A couple of weeks back, he took to explaining the problem with daddyblogs: In a nootshell, 'e says that dads 'oo care about their kids're jus' ahn't min, they're joost nootless pooftahs tawkin' aboat wiminy things, wishin' they wair wimin. It joost i'n't raight. [Or something like that. It doesn't make much sense without the accent, either, I'm afraid.]
But what brought Mr. Leonard to this dire conclusion, you might wonder? Mr Leonard, who's paid job is writing about names, and bedtime stories, and dad-friendly gadgets? Well, for starters, he appears to have airdropped into the site in the middle of Mutsy Week. And all these years, I thought the country who brought us both Benny Hill AND Bean had a sense of humor. And I would be wrong.
