... 10) GEORGE DUBYA BUSH'S BRAIN AND THE REST OF HIM Useless may not be the most appropriate description for his two brain cells, unused might be more apt. He quite simply has to be the worst American president since either his own father, or Ronald 'B-Movie' Reagan. Basically the ... Read review

Where's the nearest skip?

AdvantagesGets it off my chest


"Whether it's things we've bought ourselves, things we've been given, or useless things in general, life is full of useless things. We've already heard of chocolate fireguards, motorcycle roof racks or solar-powered torches, so here's my spin on the whole topic of uselessness.

"...a circular tarmac layer cake. 10. “The UK Freedom of Information Act. No use for Freedom or for Information.” As observations go, it’s hard to fault this one, but does it accurately characterise the offending piece of legislation as useless?

"...gently by writing a Top 10 list. I've chosen as my subject '10 Most Useless Items'. When I say 10,I actually mean 8. Some of them aren't exactly 'items' per se, but I'm still including them.

"...a guided tour of my 10 most useless items: 1. WILLY WARMERS I am happy to admit to having attended a few Ann Summers parties in my time. I have never failed to be amazed at the amount of otherwise intelligent women purchasing willy warmers for their partners. Now what are these actually for? They can't possibly have a function! Why would any self respecting man encase his pride and joy in a sheath of itchy wool or slimy ,silky nylon? Especially ..." Read review
