Do accept my profound apologies that this is not museums or gallery related, however I offer you some end of the week amusement (for the few not working in factories, shops, mines and other continual employment with only 5 days off a year).
Look on the social media tubes of twitter or facebook, and search for #VictorianFacebook. Currently trending (how I feel dirty using that term) is the sweet idea of posting ‘Victorian’ style messages – even the media has noticed with a couple of news websites running articles picking some of the more amusing posts up. Plus, the police are having a giggle with it!
I was rather taken with these:
Paseka Lentsa The Sweep's urchin has become lodged in the main chimney once more, fornicate my existence!#VictorianFacebook
Mark Gibson #VictorianFacebook Off one's face on Mead last night, had a knee-trembler with a painted lady & now feel compelled to use the water-closet
Surrey Police @SurreyPolice Shocking disregard for the speed limit earlier - one vagabond driving at six miles per hour! #VictorianFacebook
Webcomic and occasional blog about the heritage sector.
