David Cameron's Crank Call

A hoax caller was put through to David Cameron's official mobile phone after claiming to be the director of GCHQ. What a great hoax. I bet that was loads of fun. Unless you got David Cameron to ask around the cabinet table if there was an MP by the name 'Seymour Cutts' you were wasting your time.

The PM ended the call when it became clear it was a wind up. The clues were there. Why would GCHQ call you to find something out when they could just listen to your calls? Hmm, fishy.

It's said that no sensitive information was disclosed. No, if you want sensitive information from a Tory on his phone you could've been messaging Brooks Newmark. Of course no sensitive info was given out, we all know not to do that. When the bank call me and ask for some details to confirm it's me so they can go on to sell me things I am more than willing to let them go on thinking I might be someone else. It's like a time share salesman being behind a bouncer – I'm keeping my trainers on thanks.

It's like when America's security agency had their Twitter hacked and released a statement saying no sensitive information was taken. Of course not. Duh! I'm not security expert but I'd imagine day one on the training course is "don't tweet government secrets".

I'm more surprised that they have managed to keep Cameron's mobile number such a secret. I have never given my number out and yet I get calls all the time about PPI. And someone keeps texting my telling my there's money waiting for me from the accident I had in the last 5 years. It must've been a very bad accident as I have no memory of it at all. Wow. I'm lucky to be alive.

Lost Words

Every so often there's a story in the news about new words being added to the dictionary. Every year I send in a suggestion of,

Echomonics. n, When you tell someone how much something costs and they're so shocked they say it right back to you.

It turns out you can't just suggest words, they are added into the dictionaries through common use. Lately we have seen terms like "selfie stick" gain popularity. I remember the days when if you said someone was "playing with their selfie stick" you meant something quite different, although you could use the same w-word to describe them.

The opposite also happens, where words fall out of popular use and disappear from the language. There are lots of old words you don't hear any more, like, "please" and "thank you", eh, eh, social commentary there.

A Detroit university has started a campaign to bring back some words we have lost. I like this, it's recycling.

They say we should save "knavery". You'd use it to describe a "roguish or mischievous act". It's such an old insult the only way to get it used more would be to let Andrew Mitchell near more police officers.

Also on the list there's "caterwaul," which means a shrill or wailing noise; "rapscallion," meaning a mischievous person; and "flapdoodle," or nonsense.

So you could say, "That rapscallion was caterwauling utter flapdoodle," if you wanted to sound like Russell Brand.

Why are fun words like that leaving the language yet we still call that crop "rape seed". Come on, we all feel odd about saying it. If we can change Marathon to Snickers we can find a new word for that crop. Or reuse an old one. I hear flapdoole might be free soon.
