Dean and Nigel
Tell Everyone You Don't Know! A truly excellant site. We provide a word of warning here - this site could cause excessive mirth, possibly leading to loss of bodily control, difficulty in drawing breath, or even a major diesel spillage. You have been warned!

We are glad to award The Reader's Doglist Golden Riband Commendation for Excellance to Sign Language (signslanguage.com) for an excellant collection of signs.
"Crazy (but real) Road Signs"
And while we're on the subject of signs, here's another collection of a similar nature, this time from South Africa, where they appear to have more than their fair share.
HomeStar Runner ("Everybody, Everybody")
For all you lovers of cartoons, here's a truly excellant website which will introduce you to some fine characters, including HomeStar Runner, Strong Bad, Marzipan, Pom Pom, Coach Z, the Cheat, Strong Mad, Strong Sad, the Poopsmith and The King Of Town. Make sure you check out StrongBad's e-mails too!
The Home Page of The British Lard Marketing Board
Some of today's Marketing johnnies coluld learn a thing or two from the BLMB! Also, for those particularly interested in recipes, there are one or two good ones to be found at this site.
The Gallery Of Regrettable Food
Have you ever puzzled how civilised people used to eat certain things which now seem beyond the pale? Check out Lileks.com's Gallery Of Regrettable Food. We hope you don't find it a regrettable experience!
The Institution of Silly & Meaningless Sayings
THE place to discover malapropisms, mixed metaphors, the occasional spoonerism, attempts at using foreign phrases, but mostly just downright nonsense that sounds correct (if said with conviction). They are derived from a number of sources - work colleagues, meetings with clients, radio and television interviews and so on - but all are genuine and have been heard at first hand (if that's possible?).
A wonderful guide to the transportation contraptions of Communist era Eastern Europe. Written with love and passion by an Italian, the English is sometimes a little wide of the mark, but here at the Reader's Doglist, we approve of that sort of thing. Hurrah!
Nice Cup Of Tea And A Sit Down Dot Com
A lovely, if somewhat surreal guide to tea and biscuits. Check out the wonderful Tea Policy, read reviews of biscuits, browse through TheWife's observations on life or simply find out what's the Biscuit Of The Week! Have a nice sit down while you're at it.
A wonderful site dedicated to the exposure of the Western world to the peculiar brand of English patois appearing on display in Japan and elsewhere in the far-east.
A site dedicated to Photoshopping - the art of monkeying around with photographs. There are some very bizarre ideas on display on this site... worth a browse every day or two.
Whoohoo.co.uk's Cockney Translator
At last! You can have that sentence translated into Cockney, me old china. Also translators available for Scouse, Brummie, Geordie, Irish, Ali G and Jolly Well Spoken!
For the latest news about Russian Things!
