Many thanks to the sharp-eyed contributor who sent us a small bit of evidence we’d been wondering about: who put up that ridiculous ‘Dearman Does Hampstead’ blog?
You know, the one that ‘proves’, through labyrinthine and often hilarious leaps of ‘logic’ and dot-joining, that essentially (prepare yourself) everyone on earth is Ricky Dearman.
You, me, your elderly great-auntie, your neighbour’s dog: we’re all Dearman. Sorry if you thought otherwise, but DDH has the goods. You might as well give in now.
In any case…the other day, this greeting appeared on Abe’s blog:
- HR = Hampstead Research
- DDH = Dearman Does Hampstead
- JF = none other than the unlovely ‘Jacqui Farmer’, aka Charlotte Ward Alton, who appears to be ‘outing’ herself as the author of both blogs.
Thanks for the tip, Charlotte. We had our suspicions, but good to have them confirmed.
p.s. Does anyone else find Ella’s little )+( glyph just a little…peculiar? No? Just us? Okay, never mind.
