Labouring under a misconception

Beneath that bland exterior beats the throbbing heart of a tabloid journalist.  It's so sad when people miss their calling
You know what I just love? The fact that this week’s top search term driving visitors to the other side of the mountain is “urine drinking”. Admittedly, it’s not quite as bizarre as some of the others I’ve had, but it still gives me a warm feeling.
