    That's him. I'd recognise that blurred face anywhere.

    HOW TO WRITE GOOD

    1. Avoid alliteration. Always

    2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.

    3. Avoid cliches like the plague. They're old hat.

    4. Comparisons are as bad as cliches.

    5. Be more or less specific.

    6. Writers should never generalise.

    Seven. Be consistent.

    8. Don't be redundant; don't use more words than are necessary; it's highly superfluous.

    9. Who needs rhetorical questions ?

    10. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.

    Actually No 1 isn't alliteration. It's called something else when it's vowels.....SPOT !!... What's it called ?

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    I've never been able to post to Twitter, only to view it as whenever I try to post anything I get "This request looks like it might be automated. To protect our users from spam and other malicious activity, we can't complete this action right now. Please try again later." I've searched for a solution & although it seems to be a very common problem I've not managed to find a solution yet.

    I post a lot of nonsense on twitter and I've never gotten that message. Maybe you should stick "Trump" in your sentence. Like "my mother taught me to say trump instead of fart when I was a small child."
    I'll try that and see what happens, hold on.

    Looks okay.

    Here's another gem: "Lactose intolerant farts are the worst. So I've heard."

    Maybe I really am a mad arseface.

    Go into a browser, log in to Twitter, change your password, log out and back in again, and try to send a tweet.

    It's said there have been times when Twitter has displayed that error message to lock out huge blocks of users until each performs a password change, because they thought it possible those passwords were compromised.
