Hellooooooooooooo! And welcome to the 114th EVER newsletter from rathergood!
Today we have a musical mashup of David's search for the Goddess to delight and entertain you:http://www.rathergood.com/david
In honour of the Oscars I knocked out this quick little gag that will only make sense if you're English:http://www.rathergood.com/hurd_locker
In other news I stumbled across this very lovely drawing of a Spongmonkey:http://bit.ly/a2jbkA
I spend my days in Shoreditch, and was surprised to see that there was a big fire yesterday. I popped over to gawk at lunchtime and took a photo:http://flic.kr/p/7K2eNW
I'd love to have a couple of those big platform-on-a-stick things the firemen were using. We could joust in them! Just think how fun that would be, two fire engines charging at each other, people hundreds of feet up in the platform bit trying to knock each other off as they hurtle past! Glorious!

Right, I think that's about it for today. Except to tell you that I LOVE YOU. I love you so hard that I'd totally re-organise the Winter Olympics for you to make it more fun. You know how you thought the Winter Olympics were OK but a bit disappointing? Well, I'm going to sort it out for you by combining a few of the sports. First off, the bob sleigh run will be improved with some loops and corkscrews. At the end of the run, the bob sleigh will shoot down a ski jump, launching in to the air at a good 120 mph! It will sail gracefully over a target which the team will have to bomb with curling stones, dropping them accurately from a height of several hundred feet before they smash down on to the downhill skiing track. It is going to be TOTALLY AWESOME!
The skeleton bob will be replaced with the skeleton of a man called Bob.
In the summer Olympics we'll be adding the Modern Hexathlon. This involves a 26 mile run, all the time screaming, and defecating. To keep up the defecating you have to constantly eat cabbage and prunes, and drink laxatives by the bottle full. You also have to bleed profusely the whole way round. So that's running, screaming, defecating, eating, drinking and bleeding. Six disciplines, all at the same time. It's a very demanding sport and that is why it is so well respected. The Modern Septathlon I have planned includes all these disciplines but with the addition of another one which is too rude to detail in this very polite newsletter.
I'll TOTALLY do all that for you, because I love you THAT MUCH! I'm going to get on to the Olympics organising dudes this afternoon and get it sorted. Well, I might not get it sorted quite then because I've got to cut my toe nails and I noticed a couple of snails in the garden that could do with having their shells painted to look like eyeballs. Then tomorrow I've got to breathe on some stuff. But I'll TOTALLY get around to it I ABSOLUTELY PROMISE that at some point I will probably call the Olympics dudes if I haven't got anything else on and I can find their number and stuff.
Mwah mwah superhugs and ultrakisses!
