James Explains The Rules For ‘Lockdown 3’

We’re roughly a week into to what the cool kids are calling ‘Lockdown 3’ in England and there appears to be continuing confusion about what is allowed and what is, in fact, not allowed. Which is in itself confusing because everyone fully understood all of the rules during the last two lockdowns. Except for the…

Lockdown 3 – The Miracle Of Science

And so here we are in another lockdown. It is officially ‘Lockdown 3’ in England, and we must distinguish between the UK and England, because other parts of the UK have been doing things differently, but with, it must be said, similar levels of success. Which is to say hardly any success at all. ‘Lockdown…

Exclusive! An Interview With James Proclaims

For the last five years, little has been known about the mysterious figure behind the multi-award nominated blog, ‘James Proclaims’. Apart from the blog posts of course. But what can you really tell about a person from a blog post? Well, possibly quite a lot. Or maybe nothing at all. Have the utterings of the…

James Explains How To Blog

Hello bloggers and bots, it’s James here, off of the multi-award nominated blog, ‘James Proclaims’. I’ve been at this blogging malarkey for over five years now (if we ignore all the blogs I started and then abandoned in the preceding years. Of which there were a few) so I’m something of an expert. Indeed after…

James Explains How To Comment

Hello fellow bloggers, bots and the unlikely but still plausible person who reads this and is neither a blogger nor a bot. Today I’d like to talk about commenting on blogs. Because I’ve noticed that some people are prone to do so on this blog and, to put it bluntly, not everyone is getting it…

James Explains The Mask Situation In The UK

It is officially mandatory to wear face-masks in some places in the UK as of today. It was already mandatory to wear them on public transport but previously it was not necessary to wear them in shops. According to ‘man of the people’ Michael Gove, it was basic good manners to wear them in shops,…

James Interrogates ‘The Science’

Like many people I’ve been slightly perplexed by the way the British government has handled the ongoing pandemic. It’s not that I fundamentally disagree with anything the government is doing. I would like to disagree, but while I lack any remote understanding of what they are doing, I’m not sure I can disagree. Because to…

Desperate Lover

I know I said I’d write A poem about you But I can’t do it now Cos I really need the loo You know that I adore you And I would try to write it first But I just can’t hold it in Cos I’m about to burst My poem will be lovely I’m sure…

My Poem Is Better Than Yours

It might seem disrespectful To compare poems that we wrote But in a poetry competition Mine would get my vote I’m not saying yours is bad, I’m sure it is just fine But alas it isn’t really Quite as good as mine No, I don’t think as a poet You can compete with me But…

Magic Penguin, Fat Giraffe, Mystic Mouse, Stupid Donkey, Ed The Ostrich, Happy Rhino, Anxious Bull, Mardy Puffin, Fast Gibbon, Mistaken Moose, and Wise Owl were enjoying a drink in the Shoe and Phone one afternoon. “Wow, there are a lot of us here today,” said Fat Giraffe. “Including some characters who don’t usually come into…

Pedantically Proverbial

Music has charms to soothe the savage beast But it can annoy the neighbours at four in the morning And even at other times of day I’d imagine the savage beast Is soothed by some genres more than others The early bird catches the worm Although in truth So the late bird probably catches the…

Magic Penguin And The Further Lowering Of The Bar

Magic Penguin and Mardy Puffin were enjoying a drink in the Slipper and Pager, an establishment neither was known to frequent. “It’s alright in here,” said Magic Penguin, “reasonably priced, good selection of craft beer, and the food looks pretty good too.” “It’s not bad,” agreed Mardy Puffin, “I prefer the Sandal and Fax, but…

Magic Penguin And The Return Of The Main Characters

Magic Penguin, Fat Giraffe and Mystic Mouse were enjoying a few drinks in the Shoe and Phone one afternoon as they tended to do with monotonous regularity. “So, we’re back then,” observed Mystic Mouse. “What do you mean?” asked Fat Giraffe, “We’re always in the pub. We literally don’t do anything else.” “Yes, but last…

Magic Penguin And The Missing Main Characters

Mardy Puffin, Fast Gibbon and Mistaken Moose were enjoying a drink in the Sandal and Fax, as was their way. “Something’s not right,” said Mistaken Moose. “I think you’re mistaken,” said Mardy Puffin. “That’s right, I am,” agreed Mistaken Moose, “I’m Mistaken Moose. What’s that got to do with my original observation?” “No, I mean…

Magic Penguin And The Need For A Nemesis

  Magic Penguin, Fat Giraffe and Mystic Mouse were whiling away the afternoon in the Shoe and Phone as they were sometimes inclined to do. Fat Giraffe was slightly irritated that he had mostly been left out of last week’s story, seemingly only to be used as a cheap device to conclude the narrative with…
