Another List – Victoriananana

The Victorians were a fascinating people and their capacity for creating new inventions seemed endless. Yesterday I took a trip to the patent office and had a look at what dead people made. These are what they maids:

  • The horse whisk.
  • Crab shorts.
  • A pretty gun.
  • The corpse trembler.
  • Stovepipe clogs.
  • A Gladstone stone.
  • French wands.
  • The carpet meter.
  • Ghost powered time goggles.
  • Maggot valves.
  • The hideous cab.
  • Spaghetti gloves.
  • Pox brushes.
  • Electric zap tubes.
  • The safety bullet.
  • A whambambulator.
  • Beef tweed.


Thanks for reading this blog.

Publishing lists is lazy.

Touch me?

Back in the early days of this Century, I made some money by saying the odd funny thing in public. On one of these occasions a fellow funny talker told me that I should write a blog (because that was the sort of thing funny talking people did back then.) Now, I’m not the sort of person who does things the easy way, so I rejected all the ready made blogging platforms and started my own website. Since then it’s become a repository for whatever stuff is bubbling out of my brains and a directory of various podcasts and videos that I’ve made with my friends and is completely unnecessary.
