Yep, it’s Friday again and I know how excited you all are to be here for the latest in the Friday Funnies series.  :clap_tb: But, before I pull out the latest joke from my sleeve I want to tell you just a little bit about my last post.  :hairout_tb: Now, hang onto those hair follicles, it’s not all that bad, it’s just that I know a lot of my readers are fellow bloggers who are continually persecuted by spammers. Well, if that’s you then before reading the rest of the post, or perhaps after picking yourself up off the floor from laughter, head on over and read my post Where Has All The Spam Gone?, because honestly, since updating the plugin in question I’ve had some spare time on my hands.

Whew! Now that I’ve got that over with lets get back to the job in hand, making you guys laugh!  :thumbup_ee:

The Smart Motorcycle Cop

A police motorcycle officer stops a driver for shooting through a red light. The driver is a real bar steward, steps out of his car and comes striding toward the officer, demanding to know why he is being harassed by the Gestapo!

So the officer calmly tells him of the red light violation. The motorist instantly goes on a tirade, questioning the officer’s ancestry, sexual orientation, etc., in rather explicit offensive terms.

The tirade goes on without the officer saying a dickybird.

When the officer finishes writing the ticket he puts an “AH” in the lower right corner of the narrative portion of the ticket. He then hands it to The ‘violator’ for his signature. The bloke signs the ticket angrily, and when presented with his copy points to the “AH” and demands to know what it stands for.

The officer says, “That’s so when we go to court, I’ll remember that you’re an arsehole!”

Two months later they’re in court. The ‘violator’ has a bad driving record and he has a heap of demerits and is in danger of losing his license, so he hired a lawyer to represent him. Read the rest of this entry

Where Has All The Spam Gone?

Spam is a blight on blogs. I like to think of spammers as vultures or seagulls hovering above the blogs looking for a tasty morsel that they can descend on and devour. In our case those tasty morsels are dofollow blogs as well as those using CommentLuv and KeyWordLuv. If you’re one of those bloggers who are being inundated with spam you should read on because you’re going to find this post really interesting.

It’s because spam has always been a pain is the ass that I’m always on the lookout to find stuff that will help me to control it. Heck, you ask almost any blogger and they’ll tell you how monitoring and deleting spam will take up a good portion of their blogging time.

In Search Of The Spam Busters

Akismet would have to be the first ever plugin I used to combat spamming and it is so good I have it in my spam busting arsenal. Unfortunately as good as it is, it’s not quite enough. That’s when I installed GASP, to put a stop to all the Robot Spam. And yet it still wasn’t enough and it’s one of the reasons I put my hand into my cyberspace pocket, i.e. PayPal to purchase CommentLuv Premium which had an updated, more powerful version of GASP installed

Enter ComentLuv Premium Spam Buster

It’s because spammers are always on the lookout to circumvent whatever plugin you’re using that we have to thank people like Andy who are keeping track of their shenanigans by updating their plugins, speaking of which you should see what Andy has done to make CommentLuv Premium even better.

  • Minimum amount of keyups on comment?: Let’s face it, spammers know that you’re not going to accept those “Great post” type comments anymore and so now preparing their comments before hand so they can copy and paste them directly into your comment form. I’m sure you’ve seen similar comments posted those blogs you’ve been reading? Well, the new updates have nipped that in the bud!
  • Banned search terms: The updated version of CommentLuv Premium now lets you nominate those search terms that you want to ban so that users get notified before entering your blog that you will not tolerate crappy spammy comments

Just watch the video to see how it works.

Did you notice the clickable banner on the top left of the video? How about the cover image I used? Notice how it’s the same image I used in the post.  The cover image is a great way to promote your brand or to overcome the random image that YouTube’s uses when displaying your video. Well, rather than going into all that here why don’t you read my Review Of Easy Video Press!

More On Watches Are They More Than Just A Time Piece

Invicta Watch MacroI did a post a little while back called When Only A Precision Watch Will Do where I told you guys why I love my watches and how I tend to go for the ones full of gadgets, like my remote control one. Yep, I actually have a watch that doubles as a TV remote. I can turn my TV on and off, change channels as well as adjusting the volume. Is that cool or what? :thumbup_tb:

Some of the comments on that post were from people who said they didn’t need a watch because they much preferred their mobile phones, something I had mentioned in the post. The thing is a watch is more than just the technology behind it, and it doesn’t matter if it’s a digital one or one of those trendy analogue one like those Invicta ​Watches​.

As a time piece it’s a hell of a lot easier to glance at the watch on your wrist than it is to dig one out of your pocket or to fish it out of your handbag, especially a handbag because most of them are so full of junk it’s amazing you women can find anything in them. :ponder:

I know a lot of people whose watch holds a special meaning for them because they were given it as a gift, they inherited from a relative or someone the person who gave it to them is is someone special. What about you? Can you do without a watch even if you have a mobile phone? I know I can’t. If you can’t do without your watch why is that so? Is it because of the tech inside of it? Perhaps it’s because of the person who gave it to you? Then again it may have special meaning to you because you received it as a gift? What makes your watch especially endearing to you?
