From today's Guardian Unlimited website (so will be lost to posterity very shortly):

The death of the record shop and Willy Mason, in our podcast.

Now, that's a nasty case of zeugma if ever I saw one.

In the latest Lily Allen single, "Alfie", someone has seen fit to censor it for radio play. The censored words? 'Twat' and 'THC'. What, 'THC'? Really?

Never has there been such a bizarre censoring decision since Teenage Dirtbag by Wheatus which, on UK radio, of the lines:

Her boyfriend's a dick // He brings a gun to school

The one word that was censored was, er, gun. Huh?
