Extreme Blogging

From: Your Insurance Company
To: Mr Farty
Subject: Additional Premiums

Dear Mr Farty,

It has come to our attention that you are involved in the pursuit popularly known as "blogging". Given the recent reclassification of blogging as a dangerous sport1, we have reluctantly been obliged to review our pricing structure.

With immediate effect, your premiums will be increased by the amount of one hundred pounds per month. You need take no action; we shall automatically advise your bank to adjust your direct debit accordingly.

If you should decide to relinquish blogging, please contact us immediately to have your premiums readjusted.

Yours Sincerely,
Nigel Goldsmith CDM
Accredited Insurance Adjustor

Now all I need is a friend to use the second coaster and we can surf the internet happy together.

1) Girls
b) Fit
c) Sandra Bullock
4) Open to 'new' experiences

I got nearly the same letter! OMG! And I have no clue where to get pounds, but the dollar is basically worthless and no one will take it. What to do???

Mr Farty said...

Honey - Looks like all the related accidents have taken a jump.

Mr H - You forgot:
v) Deaf and blind.

Marie - Let's live dangerously and keep blogging surreptitiously!
