Jackie, the Brits can tell you better than I, but.
The Guardian is an independent-thinking progressive newspaper which I like a lot. Now what's a Fuzzclog?

And by "the new black," I think what's meant is the new group to discriminate against. Not that you asked me, but did that ever stop me?

No, I don't mind, Anna--sponge-like, I soak up info. from all sources. Here's the explanation their site gives:
What does the word 'Fuzzclog' mean?

Dictionary definition - "a profound philosophical statement ."


What is the purpose of Fuzzclog?

Fuzzclog is a non-profit organisation. The main aim of the website is to give students (and desirable others) the opportunity to have their work viewed across the entire world.


Who runs Fuzzclog?

Fuzzclog is run by a group of media art students studying at Southampton Institute in the UK.

I was once tasked with naming and shirt design for our softball team; we became None of the Above, which was most apt as we traditionally finished last but none. long after I (was) retired from the team, I was given a 20th Anniversary shirt, the name has ever held.

A friend was telling me, just last night, about a colleague of his whose name is Les. Apparently Les got asked to do an awful lot of work and is always being put on jobs others won't do, etc., until he decided his personal slogan should be, "We Do More With Les!"

(well, I liked it!)

So, some explanation is needed. The Guardian is a daily newspaper on the left of the political spectrum. It is renowned for it's appalling spelling and is often referred to as the Grauniad. It is a broadsheet rather than a tabloid, although it usually has two tabloid supplements which feed every intellectuals secret desire to look at Kylies bottom. This link gives a brief history of the paper. http://www.guardian.co.uk/Print/0,3858,4428358,00.html To access the online paper click on this http://www.guardian.co.uk The cryptic crossword is great, Auracaria may just be a genius.
The new black is a fashion term which now describes every thing new in terms of previously fashionable things. So, Britney is the new Tiffany, grey is the new black and so on. Just google say, grey is the new black, it's terrifyingly ubiquitous. There is an occasional column in the Private Eye devoted to this disease. The new black could also be taken to mean what Ana said.
'I can't believe it's not butter' is a margarine with a stupid name.

I've always referred to it as "I can't believe you think it's butter."

I have a bottle of very good 12 year old Bunnahabhain. If you can tell me how to pronounce it, you can have a good belt of it. not!

Ænigma suggests bunnies.
