Happy Chinese New Year

So - 2014,
The year of the horse.

Not bad.

People born in the year of the horse are said to be a bit like horses: animated, active and energetic – they love being in a crowd. They are quick to learn independence – foals can walk minutes after birth – and they have a straightforward and positive attitude towards life. They are known for their communication skills and are exceedingly witty.

The BBC however, is not exactly know for being overly witty (at least not intentionally)...
Stiff upper lip and all that.
The hardware/wetware that does their speech-to-text translation...well, I think it has a mind of it's own.

They've recently called for a "Moment of violence" during the Queen Mother's funeral and some other choice faux pas...
But still-
You have to take the laughs when you can get 'em-

So, maybe the best of both worlds?

Hey! I got to use this quite disturbing whorsey pic again.
