I’m taking a lazy option when it comes to today’s blogging process. Instead of my usual 500 minimum narrative, yours truly intends to share a selection of parody biographical data which form part of books printed and published on my behalf by blookup.com.

These predominantly fictional vignettes written with a view of augmenting the clambake’s jocularity levels. Please take these snippets with a pinch of salt, or even a huge one if so desired. Be aware, though, excessive sodium intake isn’t recommended, particularly if you suffer from hypertension or are a slug.

Borrowing strongly from the self-depreciating humour of heroes like late comics Les Dawson and Bob Monkhouse, GJ Strachan hopes his short tongue-in-cheek observations about his life raise a chuckle or two.
