Cross incontinence: a rant.

If I have a television here in Britain I'm forced by law to pay £145.50 a year to fund the British Broadcasting Corporation's output.

And what does the BBC produce with this sizable chunk of my hard-earned cash?

Well, there's a programme they keep advertising on BBC Radio 4 called Cross Incontinence.

Call that Public Service Broadcasting? I should coco. Honestly, just what do they think...

...what?

Really?

Are you sure?

Oh.

Well, okay, I suppose Crossing Continents might be all right - but just don't get me started on some of the rest!

Word To Use Today: continence. This word comes from the Latin continēre, from tenēre, to hold.
