The Office: Middle Earth - SNL take a bow son!

The Hobbit, The Office, Middle Earth, Saturday Night Live
US comedy show Saturday Night Live has come up with an absolute corker with this mash-up of The Hobbit vs The Office! Actor Martin Freeman and the rest of the SNL cast should all take a bow for this piece of genius. That's enough words - all you have to do is just sit back, watch and laugh your little Hobbit feet off...

The Drought: Dan Hilles
Dan Hilles is a pretty regular kind of guy - regular job, regular bunch of mates, regular male aversion to shopping. But when it comes to the opposite sex, Dan has lost his way somewhat and his recent sexual experiences are anything but regular!

Eight months ago Dan became single for the first time in three years after the traumatic and life threatening break-up with long-term girlfriend Stacey. He was ready and raring to take single life by the horns. But somewhere along the way, the rules had changed.

He hasn't just forgotten how to talk to women, he has suffered an extreme case of amnesia when it came to even being in the same vicinity of the fairer sex. Facing the possibility of being forced into a life of celibacy, Dan has turned to his friends for salvation and to help him overcome his drought, with disastrous and often hilarious consequences.

STOP THE PRESS! John Terry was a photobomb star way back in 2004!

They say you can't keep a good man down and those rules certainly apply when you put the words 'photobomb', 'John' and 'Terry' together. Fresh from his full-kit exploits at two European finals and then turning up everywhere from the Royal Wedding to the Oscars, it seems that the Chelsea skipper was at it way back in 2004.

Thanks to the power of Sky+ I decided to catch up on some old box sets, and last night whilst watching the first series of TV series Lost I only went a spotted the man known as JT who was guest starring in episode 20. You don't believe me? Well check this out...

Just when I thought things couldn't get any worse for Everton, Justin Bieber puts the boot in!

It's fair to say that my beloved Everton have had a pretty torrid Christmas period. Four defeats in a row, lightweight in defence, no killer instinct in front of goal and just four points off the friggin' relegation zone. It's enough to make even the most staunch Evertonian to fear the worst.

But surely nothing could have prepared the Goodison Park faithful for this image of Justin Bieber parading around in an Everton kit this week!

I freely admit that I use this blog as a platform to take the Michael out of that team in red across the park whenever I can, but even I have to put my hands up on this one and admit that on this occasion that lot from Anfield might just have had the last laugh. In a week when Liverpool celebrate the end of an era with the announcement that Steven Gerrard will be leaving at the end of the season, the best us Everton fans can hope for is that Roberto Martinez doesn't panic buy in January...

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, Happy New Year 2015, books to read in 2015, funny books 2015, best books 2015, The Drought, Steven Scaffardi, Lad Lit, Funny Lad Lit, The Flood, books for men, Happy NY, 2015,

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a fantastic evening and the heads are not too sore this morning. The last 12 months have flown by and after numerous promises to publish the follow-up to The Drought in 2014, I'm quietly confident that The Flood will be available as an eBook within the next 6-8 weeks!

I have been working on The Flood over the Xmas break and I am now 90,000 words in (which happens to be the word count for The Drought). There are one or two things to iron out and tweak, but I'm going to be working hard over the next few days to get it finished. I will then be work on the proofreading and editing stage, and getting a few close friends to give the book the once over and make any changes based on their feedback.

So thank you for your patience and I hope when The Flood does arrive it will be worth the wait! Until then, Dan and his pals from The Drought hope you have a great 2015!
