The Wrath of Grapes. In a bid to enhance the size of grapes, scientists accidentally grant them super-size and immense intelligence. Outraged by the fate of billions upon billions of their poor brethren, the New Grapes bounce around angrily and punish anyone who eats grapes or drink wine by doing an en masse bouncing up and down on them. :twisted:

:lol: Oh deary deary me... ;)

Donald Trump's Winferno - a dystopian depiction of the Interesting Times that we live in today, where anything that doesn't lead to "a win" is automatically judged inferior and worthy of mocking. :shock:

Interesting Rimes - The new art book by J. Frost, showing tiny variations of fern patterns, had the usual low sales except among designers of wallpaper and his newest clientele, designers of website backgrounds.

Interesting Rhymes (by yours truly). Pretty self-explanatory. Includes limericks that start with "There once was a lass from Lanarkshire"... and... hmm. What rhymes with Lanarkshire? ;)

It depends on whether you use Australian, American, Scots, Northern England, Southern England, or BBC Standard pronunciation, doesn't it?
Of course you could just call it "Lancre"...
The Fitz-Irrelevant - the popular TV show of irrelevant quotations has a spinoff that has nothing to do with it, with its required accompanying book that has all the facts that they couldn't find time to put on the show. New edition, now with a DVD enclosed so you don't have to read the book.

Q-Pie. The genius inventor from the Bond films takes up baking instead, ably assisted by a plummy-voiced Britisher with the appropriate surname of "Fry".
