Joe Blog's Interview #51 Bob's £50 Million Blog

Name : Bob Red
Age : 29
Location : Hertfordshire.
Vocation : Electronic Design Engineer & Hardware Project Leader.
Philosophy : The true measure of someones character can be based on what you would do IF you could get away with it.

Sum up what your blog is about for us.
My blog is set on two levels; on the public side of things, its my attempts to send up the stupid, insane and frustrating elements of life, whilst hopefully raising a laugh or two. A bit like converting negative energy into positive energy, only without the need for beards, open university style tank tops and bad BO. The second level of my blog is written in the same vein, but is a lot more personal to me. I regulate this part by password, but its free to join and there is no catch. I just like to know who has access. Unfortunately I cant tell you more than that but if you're curiosity is piqued then the joining instructions are on my site.

Why are you doing your blog?
I love making people laugh. I also like the opportunity to be completely sarcastic. I also like writing. Perhaps in someways i would like my blog to become well known making me an Internet celebrity only without the mandatory drug use, beating up of press members and gobbing off at every opportunity whilst on big brother.

How much would you sell your blog for?
Youve probably heard loads of people say 'i wouldn't', or 'its pricelss...' well its yours for £50 million!! Ill just start up another blog for free and live a life of luxury ;o)

Tell us a random funny story that comes to mind.
I was travelling home on the tube after an office party one year and we get the token fake beggar walking down the carriage doing the usual 'i need money for a hostel' crap. (we'll ignore the fact he was in brand new reeboks) After being ignored and doing the whole 'i hope you have a merry Christmas' guilt trip mind games, he proceeds to leave the train. A rather drunk bloke standing in between two rather attractive young ladies decides to be brave.... After the beggar gets off, he waits... The doors close... The train enters the tunnel.... He then exclaims in his most put on roughest north London accent... "yeah... f**k off!" The girls were suitably impressed...What a man!

Are there any blogs you enjoy reading?
I know its terrible, but I'm more of a writer than a reader. I have a list of semi regular reads. If an entry is short an punchy ill no doubt read it, which is ironic for me since my entries are longer than a builders tea break!

Whats the funniest entry on your blog?
Gah! that's a really tough one... Well one of the entries that got way too much attention was this one Outbreak (I really should have known better ;o)

What is your writing style?
Sarcastic with a caustic, wits-end streak!

Why should someone visit your site?
If they feel like laughing at me or with me.

What do people commonly say about your site?
"Would you like to buy Viagra?" "Greetings to you in Jesus' name would you like to help me transfer money into your country?" I do get lots more intelligent comments however, my favourite comment was from one of my regular readers and good friends. I think it best sums up my blog... "your sense of humour...cynical though it is...is absolutely fantastic and most of these [entries]are exceptionally funny, except for the fact that the truth of them is slightly saddening." I just guess that's the world we live in nowadays sadly.

If you could recommend one website, what would it be and explain why.
Click Here as it cleverly illustrates the depths at which my humour can plummet too ;o)

Tell us just one of your favourite actors, actress's, film, song, and comedian.
Don't really have a favourite actor. My favourite actress would be Angelina Jolie because "i sooo would!" My absolute favourite film has to be Love, Honour & Obey as there are so many classic lines in that film that can be recited on a boozy night out. Shame the title makes it sound like a girly romance film... Its actually a gangster movie like Lockstock and Snatch. My music taste swings widly too... The most fitting song for me would be 'waiting for my real life to begin' But I tend to listen to rock or dance music more than anything else these days. I hate anything with 'urban' in the title, or where the video has the rap star poncing around in a gold plated Humvee wearing a necklace with an AK47 on it. What a load of self indulgent crap! Dave Gorman's a favourite comedian of mine, me and some friends spent a summer following him around, going to his performances. I even got into a bit of bother at the BBC TV show because i turned up forgetting i had a small penknife still attached to my key chain. Anyone would think i was walking in there with weapons grade plutonium!

Tell us a joke.
Have you heard about Einsteins theory on incest?
its all relative...
These days though I'm more into philosophy... trying to answer topical questions such as "if you were to sleep with your own clone, would that be considered gay or just masturbation?"

What would you wish for with 3 wishes?
1) Whatever i wish for doesn't get none of that monkey's paw "turn your wish in upon itself" crap. 2) The opportunity to get out and meet people 3) A flying car that drives/parks itself.
