Facebook to Face

As A Dodo is proud to announce that it has been dragged (kicking and screaming) into the 21st century and now has its very own Facebook group, where members can express their deep and abiding love for extinct-avian-related satirical obituaries and take part in weekly untimely-shuffling-off-this-mortal-coil-related polls. If you're on Facebook and would like to join in, just type in "As A Dodo" in the search area to look us up. If, on the other hand, you're still clinging to the wreck of The Medusa that is MySpace, why not come on over to Facebook anyway, free yourself from irritating emails from unsuccessful indie bands and young ladies who "can't show you full pictures on MySpace" and want you to "click on this link" and "hand over credit card details to Russian mafia", and sign up to a load of irritating pokes instead?

As a sample of what we've been getting up to, among the topics discussed this week was, "Which weather forecaster should be sacrificed to appease the gods of summer?" With the votes now in and duly adjusted for seasonal factors (the seasonal factors this summer being wind chill and torrential rain), the results are ...

1st= Daniel Corbett
Siân Lloyd
3rd Carol Kirkwood
4th= Rob McElwee
Francis Wilson
6th= Tomasz Schafernaker
Fred Talbot

Accordingly we must now call on Mr Corbett and Ms Lloyd to present themselves to Stonehenge so that their hearts may be torn from their living bodies and offered to the weather gods Frey, Zeus and Jack Scott in order that some of us can get to see more than half an hour of sunshine before winter sets in. Thanks to all who voted. This week's virtual round of applause goes to Siân Lloyd's first nominator, Mark Daydy. *APPLAUSE*
