    Why not get a nice pink one?

    Very, man about the village, I hear.

  4. Megan says:

    You caved? Three more outings in the pub and pink would have been what all the guys wanted.

    Word of advice: no Razor. NO Razor. Dreadful phone.

  5. TheHinge says:

    i have on very good authority that pink for men is IN. Especially for the YOUNG! DONT GIVE IN!

  6. Mr Angry says:

    Shit. I’ve just painted mine pink in an act solidarity.

  7. Mr Wibble says:

    Turquoise. How about turquoise?

  8. Brennig says:

    Oh yes! Pink is the new trendy colour that all young, virile men are… splutter, cough, cough, agh! I’m sorry folks. I couldn’t keep the facade going.

  9. misterboatswain says:

    All I can see here is the title, is this intended?

  10. Why not something like a Blackberry? Then you could blog from it, and send us twitters about even the smallest and most mundane incidents in your dreary existence.

    Yes. There’s quite possibly no upper limit to the interest that your twitters would generate. Your first one could be “I’ve bought a phone!”

  11. Lozzy says:

    “I’m sorry sir, we only have pink left in that model, we’re expecting a new delivery in next week, is there another phone I can interest you in…”

  12. cerise? fushia?

    apparently purple is the latest must-have (or so Orange told me).

  13. mb says:

    i can’t believe the last two weeks were just a set up to that punchline.

  14. Pete says:

    I like my Razr.

  15. Eliza says:

    i have a spare nokia 5110 in the cupboard- has a leopard print cover… very macho. want me to send it over?

  16. Larry says:

    That’s our Jonny – a will of marshmallow!
    The staying power of a butterfly’s antenna…

  17. Lisa says:

    I had already lined up these teenagers from Nova Scotia who had organized a campaign here to get everyone to wear pink shirts in solidarity with a younger boy who was made fun of and called names for wearing his pink lacoste shirt. They were going to descend on Norfolk with pink shirts and phones, and you would have been a famous, heroic person, renowned for your understanding, tolerance, etc, etc, putting all the commentators and villagers to shame.

    Oh well.

    Dandy grey russet with a yellow border!

  19. Pete says:

    I can’t see the story either, Misterboatswain. Just the title.

    And it’s not on the front page either, only in the RSS feed.

    It’s all very mysterious.

  20. HFactor says:

    iPhone, Jonny! Seriously, you can blog on the train, and people think you are cool when you are very much not. Even ASBO youths have discarded their usual withering disdain for glances of new-found respect. Or maybe they are just trying to work out the best way to mug me.

  21. Tom says:

    it was on the front page, but has been deleted. maybe jonny uploaded a half done post by accident, then left it till later?

    this throws the whole off-the-cuff style of this site into question.

    my faith has been shaken.

  22. Cliff says:

    Did you trade in your old “friend’s” phone?

  23. JonnyB says:

    Er… less is more…?

  24. M&2S says:

    Clever! (The post. V. clever.)

  25. Imaginary Friend says:

    Thought the phone was a perfect excuse not to go to the pub quite so often (you did say you would try this out in the New Year). Oh well, you’ll have to try will power alone now! Bet the temptation will be even harder to resist when you have a posh new phone you’ll want to show off…

  26. Linda says:

    I hope you will be able to operate your new phone once you get home with it. You practically have to have an enginering degree to figure out how to use these new ones. All I can do is answer mine and make calls, the rest eludes me.

  27. Dee says:

    Why can’t I see the post? *looks sad* Now my morning is thrown into disarray and chaos!!! *cry*

  28. AndrewM says:

    Go camo mate.

    It’s the new matt black.

  29. beth says:


    You Girl!

  30. bromman says:

    Otherwise engaged then.

  31. Miss T says:

    Don’t waste money on a whole new phone! Just get a fascia. (I am practising new word use. I think I got it wrong. It is much more like fascist than I remembered).

  32. Gerbil says:

    I can’t understand why you appear to be letting them take the mickey.

    They go to WeightWatchers.

  33. Richard says:

    Nope. No story here either. You didn’t get another pink one, surely?

  34. Pisohe says:

    Ach, people, please re-read comment 24!
    Congrats for the blog, JonnyB, you always make me laugh.

  35. Richard says:

    Ah…Thank you Pisohe. I got up to about 20 then thought I’d let somebody else work out the irony.

  36. Pat says:

    So not only are you a yellow belly but also bone b—-y idle.
    I’m a little bit disappointed in you Jonny:(

  37. Dee says:

    Damn. Way to completely confuse me, JohnnyB.

  38. sablonneuse says:

    That’s really clever that is – 39 comments and no post – only a title. Not many bloggers can claim to have achieved that.
    Chapeau Jonny.

  39. Harry Turner says:

    I thought it was one of your better posts.

  40. NAGA - Potty Training Services says:

    Is there going to be a sequel?

    “I Go Shopping, Again.”

  41. Rufus S Later says:

    At last, JonnyB has got the hang of this blogging lark. Well done.

    “I’m on the train.”




  43. JonnyB says:

    This is great – I think I will just give up the writing thing and just think of titles in future. It is much more efficient.

  44. guyana-gyal says:

    I am most disappointed. You caved. I thought you had more, uh, guts, JonnyB…pardon the pun.

  45. Oli says:

    I dont believe how many people didnt get the title only post.

  46. rach says:

    Pink phones and photographing squirrels……fantastic!

  47. guyana-gyal says:

    Oli, I think people got it but the title is fun and why not have fun too…

  48. Mardler says:

    Less is more, therefore, more is less. More or less ?
