This is a question Bad Ideas

"Let's get all the fireworks and pile dog shit on top of them". I can't believe I actually said that, and I still can't believe I was the one who lit them and couldn't run away in time. Tell us about your spectacularly misjudged ideas.

In a life littered with bad ideas, relentless failure and shattered dreams, I still find time to screw up on an industrial scale.

Last year, I spent a huge portion of my time and an even larger portion of my money, building Stoke's first genuine pizza-oven. My misguided dream was based around the 'if you build it, they will come' mantra of my favourite film - Field of Dreams. Unfortunately, nobody came and nobody cared, which when I think back isn't surprising. You see, no one wants to come to a decrepit ex-council semi in the shittest part of one of the shittest towns in the country - pizza oven or not.

So now I sit here alone again, finding solace in convincing a half-dead messageboard that I am in fact a multimillionaire international consultant, who invented the mobile phone.

Sometimes though, when I look through the kitchen window, beyond the bags of festering rubbish and my collection of local supermarket trolleys, sometimes, I see a raging fire in the oven, I see people, I see wine, I see friends and I see happiness. But as quickly as the tears cloud my eyes, the vision disappears and I return brokenhearted to my awful reality.

Exactly. This is the kind of sophisticated trolling that I prefer.

It's all a question of marketing.
Bill it as the first "Clean Up Stoke" oven and offer to burn bags of festering rubbish, melt down supermarket trolleys and dispose of any lingering chavs.

This is quite funny (albeit meaningless without local knowledge).
It is also why I keep coming back each day, to lurk around the edges.
Yeah ok, QOTW is morphing into some kind of bizarre trolling clique, but I still find it entertaining.
