How not to get satire published

You may have noticed that, here and there, in amongst the gravely intellectual posts I usually write, I do some less serious stuff.

  14. Oh lord, this is one of your most hilarious pieces. "Faff" - what a great word! Step three is my favorite: "You're a grown up now." That sort of sums it up.

  16. Thanks, Mark - your comments always cheer me up. 'Faff' is definitely my favourite word of the moment. You can use it in all kinds of ways. Noun: what a load of faff. Verb: Stop faffing. Adjective: That's just faffy. Adverb: He said, faffily. (Actually, now I'm just making it up ...)
