The End of the (Blogging) World is Nigh – Bish Bosh Bash #bloggersbash

Some say I’m a doom monger, others that I’m prescient, a sooth-person. Tomorrow those Four Bloggers of the Apocalypse will have their cummupence. Have you seen this?


They pretend these harmless envelopes contain the names of award winners but you know what they are? They’re the first chosen to be sacrificed for their dastardly plans. These Innocents will be taken on a journey like no other. They will be genre-whipped, character-clipped and have their narrative arcs stripped bare. And then offered a T shirt for six quid and a sweaty hug.

But there is hope. You see I’ve built an animatronic Geoffle. A Trojan Hamster. There are a few technical issues t resolve. The faux beard hasn’t worked out as I hoped – it’s a bit, hmm… But by tomorrow I will be able to merge into the background; no one will spot me.

I know what you’re thinking. How will you know it’s me so you can rally to the cause? Easy. Approach the nearest Geoffle – there will be a lot around, wandering aimlessly looking for people who’ll listen to them go on about their new book. Ask:

Is that cake free?

If it’s me, I will answer:

Free the cake from blogging oppression!

The real Geoffles will try and give you a delicious square; they’d drugged with goodness and healthy ingredients.

Join me and


Remember we need lots of applause. They absolutely hate praise and goodwill. We will clap their dirty schemes to dust.


British Library 11 am and after Pizza Express 12.30.

Please help. One brave member has already tried to send a help message and they did this to him.


Be afraid, be very afraid.

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

  8. I don’t think your plan worked and the famous four took over London on Saturday. Back to the drawing board, Geoff? 🙂

    P.S – You really should have have won the funniest blog award. I’m already to nominate you for it next year.

      No I think the result were right. Mind you my daughter gave me grief that I didn’t tell the family to go around procuring votes. I tried to say the point was for people who actually read the blog to vote rather than one of her girlfriends but she was having none if it.
