It's been a few weeks since we had a two fer, which means either we are overdue, or I have nothing better to blog about. Let's go with the overdue theory.
While most blogs I read are in standard English, today's recommendations are written in Canadian and British.
The first is by Joel from Stuff and Nonsense. http://joelklebanoff.com/joelsblog2/ This is the blog of a slightly (ok, possibly more than slightly) neurotic Canadian blogger. His unusual take on economics is rivaled only by that of his hockey observations.
The second is by Dan, from Retro Yakking http://retroyakking.today.com/ Dan writes parody, and likes to complain, as he says, even when there is nothing to complain about. And he does it well.
Both of these blogs show the universality of humour. While each shows some hometown flair, the funny crosses the ocean. Or, erm, slides down from the frozen northern part of the Americas.
Both are funny, obviously, and very well writen, and on my list of daily reads.
Enjoy them, and tell them Crotchety sent you for a better seat.
