warts and all

I'm somewhat disturbed to discover that "gentile warts" is still the top performing search term leading people to this site.

Just to be clear: if you have found Newtown Ghetto Anger by searching for "gentile warts" then I am reasonably certain that the correct spelling of the word you are looking for is not g-e-n-t-i-l-e but g-e-n-i-t-a-l.

A gentile is someone who is not Jewish. A genital is a reproductive organ. Therefore genital warts would be warts on the aforementioned organ, whereas gentile warts would be warts that do not affect Jewish people.

I'm skeptical as to whether the latter kind of warts exist.

That is all.

atonal atrophy

on tv

In my other guise as one half of comedy-rock duo mrs.peacock, I'll be on the television tomorrow night.

9.30pm, Maori Television, Saturday 23 June. It's a 2 hour special on this year's Billy T Awards.

SPOILER: we end up winning.

Tune in, and so on.
