Happy New Year 2008

With the holiday period drawn to a close, it falls to us here at As A Dodo to announce the results of our Christmas Poll. Having asked you, our readers, to pick the obituary you'd most like to see in 2008, the "winners" (if that's the right term) were, in reverse order ...

4th Place
Facebook addiction

3rd Place
The Skinny Jean

2nd Place
Reality TV

1st Place
"News" about Diana, Princess of Wales.

Sadly, we have already (somewhat prematurely as it turned out) buried The Death of Diana, Princess of Wales. We can only hope that this year it is finally allowed to rest in peace.

As to our own New Year, we regret to inform readers that mucking out the Dodo is taking rather longer than anticipated. Owing to that (and other work commitments) we are forced to put As A Dodo on what we hope will be a brief hiatus. In our absence, readers are reminded that As A Dodo: The Obituaries You'd Really Like to See is currently available at Amazon and other good booksellers, and is a frankly bargainous half price in Borders stores.

A happy 2008 to all our readers. We hope to see you again soon.

Shall I write an obituary for you...?

Not just yet, discussions continue. Watch this space ... or not as the case may be.

I hope work on the glorious As A Dodo resumes soon. I also implore you to visit www.batofury.co.uk for a different type of satire...
