Standard of crosswords still quite good, though

Question in today's Times, summarised:
"I just walked in on my 15-year-old son having sex with a girl he barely knows in our living room and I'm not sure how to talk to him about it."
Answer, summarised:
"Look up your local STD clinics and leave a glass jar of loose condoms in the bathroom, topping it up occasionally so you can never really tell if the level goes down."
Did you know the Times was once considered so important to the British way of life that Goebbels ordered a daily translation?


  1. Hmm. When topping up the jar, I would empty it out first and put the newer ones on the bottom.

  2. You see, that is the kind of useful advice you would get from a quality agony aunt rather than an iconic broadsheet slumming it to the level of the lowest Murdochian denominator.
