Baa baa black sheep! Oh bollocks, I can’t use that term now can I because it’s got racial connotations, fuck, I’m showing my age, it was used when I was a child guvnor, honest! And how is it racist anyway?? They ask if the sheep has any wool! Sheep have wool, it’s a fact, C’mon it’s not like they asked it if it had any cotton! Now that would be racist! Sigh, nanny state, can’t say anything in case we offend someone!
Let’s try again!
Baa baa white sheep! Hang on just a cotton picking minute! If black sheep is racist then white sheep has to be fucking racist too! Otherwise, it’s discrimination and you are saying that it’s OK to rag on white sheep but not OK to rag on black sheep, that’s just uncool people, uncool!
One more time!
Baa baa rainbow sheep! See, I don’t like rainbow sheep, it seems wrong! You naturally get both white and black sheep so both of those terms should be fine but! You don’t get rainbow sheep naturally! Which means some sort of freaky genetic mutation has been going on and that’s just wrong!
Once more with feeling!
Baa baa Welsh sheep! Now I like this one and it’s true as the Welsh love sheep! Fuck it! No, this is probably the worst as the Welsh ‘love’ sheep in entirely the wrong way, they don’t have lamb for dinner they have lamb for dessert with a salty cream sauce!
Last time, I promise!
Baa baa chav sheep! Now, this is cool, let’s go with this!
Baa baa chav sheep have you any drugs?
Yes officer, yes officer, three bags full,
One for the meth-head,
One for crack whore,
And one for the little cunt who lives in the skip!
Oh, hello! I was just filthing up a classic nursery rhyme (as you do) but less of that!
What I wanted to write today is just a short post thanking you all! Why you ask?!? Well! I shall tell you! You see, I noticed earlier today that my follower count for WordPress followers had reached 2,000!
Now, for many of you out there with a blog that amount will be tiny and small but for me it’s massive! I know stats are irrelevant and that you have ghost followers and dead blogs, etc but the fact that I have managed to get to 2,000 regardless of those things is to me an amazing achievement!
I was told long ago (hi Inge) that I’m not a stereotypical book blogger and perhaps that’s true to some extent but what really is a stereotypical book blogger?! Surely all you need to be a book blogger is a genuine love of books?! Yes, I wrote books not fucks! I’m single so I wouldn’t know of a love of fucks!😂 Hello, ladies!😉
I’m not the most confident person and since I started blogging back in March 2016 I’ve had my issues. Hell, it was only a couple of weeks ago that I was questioning keeping my blog! However on my week away I realised that I like having a blog, it’s my own little place on the Internet where I can ramble on. I know I lack eloquence in my reviews and posts and that I go for a very informal style but it works for me and I finally realised that’s OK and that you should blog in the way that works best for and represents you. Mine is informal, blunt, sarcastic and foul-mouthed probably with a heart of gold too (according to Mother Tattooed Book Geek, I’d just say I’m a cunt).😂
Point is, this community is fucking great, regardless of which country we live in, what genre we read or how we blog we are all book lovers turned bloggers who have found each other due to our shared love of books.
And, I just wanted to say thank you to you all! No sarcasm and no swearing (in this paragraph anyway). I know that me and my blog can be an acquired taste and that I’m not for everyone. But to all those who have followed, liked, commented, shared, viewed and supported my blog since its inception, it always has and always will be appreciated, sincerely, THANK YOU!!!
Here’s a poem:
I lost my dog,
So I started a blog,
I love reading a good book,
I like using the word fuck,
If an awesome blog you do seek,
Come find me, The Tattooed Book Geek,
If you don’t follow me you are a fool,
For all those that do, respect, you’re all super cool!
