The Truth about Goats


Just when you thought that the News Media were already saturated with ill-informed and scurrilous reports, Wrenfoe is here to lower expectation further.

You can spot his scribblings regularly on Newsbiscuit.com and ITV’s Newzoids. For example…https://youtu.be/8fgvFtpuI5Q

Shifty looking goat

(Of course if you want to follow Wrenfoe, why settle for the online experience? Just camp outside his house with a set of night vision goggles and a taser. Then just bide your time…)

    Obviously, there is much to learn from this satirical old goat. I mean, I could tell he was extraordinarily experienced, just by the extraordinary “e” in the word. I would like to know a bit more about him, though:

    What’s his favorite colo(u)r?

    Does he have any pe(s)ts? (Besides me?)

    Does he write books, too?

    Hi Wrenfoe – any chance of making “Caption Competition” a high level link (top left Front Page) – difficult to find sometimes. Just saying.

  3. Wrenfoe
    October 20, 2013

    Ello Al. I’m afraid I’m a little limited with the blog template BUT if you scroll down to the bottom of the screen there is a section called ‘Categories’. The Caption section link is top and will open up all past caption posts.

    Hi Wren – seem to have lost the link to the Caption COmpetition again – and what’s up with PMs at NB?

  5. Wrenfoe
    November 10, 2013

    Ello, Matey. The NB website is a mystery to me – I’m guessing that in trying to remove a few spammers/trolls they accidentally switched PMs off.
    (As for the caption post, it’s being updated as we speak – while the jury deliberate)

      I was quite pleased with it though!

    Hi Wren – strange goings o over at NB.

    A lot of Chekhovian subtext & toys being thrown out of the pram

    (I’m blissfully ignorant about it all)

    And more fun on NB – will his madness never end?! Great Clooney piece.

    HI Wrenfoe! I am glad that you like my blog! I am following you back to read exciting stuff on your blogroll! I hope to stay connected 🙂 Happy Blogging

      Thank you.

      (Actually, I’d never stumbled across Mr Borowitz. I will now add him to my read list. Cheers!)

  13. Thank you for following my blog,junglestoriesdotcom.wordpress.com. Lest you think I am unnecessarily promoting myself, I have somehow managed to link another one on weddings fashion etc. and created quite a unholy mess of overlapping. So now you and the girls can enjoy my blogs ( children too ) . Did I mention I am technically daffy but will not give up ! Oh yes, compliments on your blog ; I would have been inspired to study more for my masters in International Relations if I had your very entertaining blog as a reference point !

    I see you have Flib Zealots, but do you have glib zealots?

    Thanks for the “follow”. Your blog has a lot to read, and I’m blonde and from California, so I have two things stacked against me… I’ll try my best though.

    • Wrenfoe
      July 11, 2014

      Lol – thank you. I think most of my followers happily fall into the glib category 😀

    Thanks for following my blog, Wrenfoe. I, too, feel that News Media is far too erudite and needs additional lowering. Here in the US, the News-for-Morons 24 hour-a-day cycle still has a ways to go to reach its true nadir.

    Hope you can help us get there!

    Thanks for the follow. To think that that news reporting could hit yet another low. I’ll be back for a read.

    Thanks. This looks like the fair and balanced news coverage I’ve been waiting for! Regards from Thom at the immortal jukebox (plugged in now).

      Balanced like the deck of the Titanic 😀

    Wrenfoe, ahoy ! Your adroit satire is delicious! Yap, I’m all for fairness and balance. But NEWS coverage? in a country where journalists have lost their sense of smell? It should be banned.

    Jefferson said he’d rather live in a country with newspapers and no government than arsy-versy, but I wonder what he’d say now. We got neither. Even the liberal channels are running scared with heavy self-censoring.

    Your “follow” inspires a new page at LeDameStepsOut (WP blog) http://wp.me/4MAcZ –don’t quite know what to name it, but any minute now …

      July 23, 2014

      Ahoy & thank you, Earfirst. Without newspapers what would we have to wrap our fish’n’chips in?

      I look forward to your blog posts 😀

    Hey there Newbie Spikey!
    (for your info, a Spikey is the term for folk who are part of the clan known to be followers of Uncle Spike 🙂

    Thank you… I really appreciate that as I for one, know how many interesting and entertaining blogs are out there.

    Blogging since June 2013, my aim is to deliver an eclectic offering of posts, from my ‘point n shoot’ attempts at basic photography, to the sharing of my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day to day happenings here on the farm. Oh, plus a few observations, opinions and lighter-hearted stuff thrown in for good measure.

    I normally keep to a couple of posts a day, maybe 3-4 at weekends if I have something special to share. But if you are at a loose end one day, maybe you’ll enjoy trawling through some of my older stuff too. I have added plenty of categories to help in said digging process.

    Thanks again and hope you have a great day…

    Your site looks entertaining. I’m going to poke around a bit.
    Thanks for the follow Wren, I’m not sure where I’m going, but happy as hell you decided to come along.

    Excuse my lisp.

      Be warned. This site is littered with spelling mistakes. It’s pretty shocking.

    Hey, I nominated you for a Liebster Award like three months ago but forgot to actually tell you about it – it’s not really your style, but it might be fun to give it a go 🙂

    Cool. Thank you very much. I’m the Mutley of the blogging world – so I’ll take any award going.

    If you’re ‘Mutley’ that must make me ‘Dick Dastardly’. Don’t forget; I’m the journo round here who was a genuine journo! Fancy reporting from a ‘conflict zone’? No, I didn’t think so …

    Looks like the One Star Fairy has been visiting Wren?

      November 7, 2015

      Lol – I just noticed that. It looks like I’ve acquired an anti-fan.

    Getting stuck into climate change in “the other place” I know I shouldn’t but I just can’t help myself, same with beer and pies. lol

    Lol – I’m still to read that thread…it looks fairly long

    Hi Wren looks like NB has crashed again.

    • Wrenfoe
      December 17, 2015

      I think there has been some sustained cyber attacks recently. That’ll teach us to mock GCHQ.

  33. Al O'Pecia

    Still down – this is a first, to my memory.

  34. Wrenfoe
    December 18, 2015

    Looks like a significant server hiccup. (NB withdrawal symptoms)

  35. Al O'Pecia
    December 18, 2015

    Are there tablets we can take? The NB equivalent of Methadone? We ought to think of a name for that – could be a NiB. “Gagadone”?

    Happy New Year Wren, and to all of your other reader. (Yes that is a full stop).

    Lol – Two readers? I’m flattered. I’d always assumed it was just me.

    Political satire or satyr ! After all , there is a goat there ! Or, maybe he is famous for getting people’s goat ! Chuckle !

    Hi Wren – can’t get a direct link to the current Caption Competition from your front page – had to go to the link sent to my email – might make it difficult for Newbies?

  40. Wrenfoe
    May 7, 2017

    It may because it was updated (with the winning caption). Try this…



  41. Al OPecia

    Hi Wren – no competition this week?


    • Wrenfoe
      September 17, 2017

      Hiya Al. It should be up…I’ll check for you.
