In case you can’t see it clearly, the ad says:

For All Single / Divorced Men: (Age 25-70)
Thousands of Men from Taiwan and Singapore have married Vietnamese girls. Vietnamese girls are well known to be good life partners & homemakers. Among their virtues are: loyalty, obedience, truthfulness and family values. You don’t need to be rich to marry your dream wife now, just one call and we will take care of everything. 100% success! (Photos and VCDs available for viewing).

I hope one of the unmentioned virtues of Vietnamese wives is that they can speak English (or Chinese or Malay).

Cool street artist Banksy with a sense of justice. I quote: “The time of getting fame for your name on its own is over. Artwork that is only about wanting to be famous will never make you famous. Any fame is a by-product of making something that means something. You don’t go to a restaurant and order a meal because you want to have a shit.” I beg to differ, but it’s a nice ideal.

Disturbing artist David Shrigley who proves that to be famous you don’t have to be able to draw well. For some reason despite (or perhaps because of) the quality of his drawings I find myself quite horrifically drawn to keep clicking. I think some of them might look quite nice in my room (at least for scaring off unwanted guests).
