I’ve been offline for a couple of days as it’s half term, so I’ve been catching up on stuff today.

And in other news concerning Foxy Bingo, according to the Bingo Blog, they’ve joined a couple of other sites such as Gala Bingo and Party Bingo in sponsoring a TV programme. Foxy’s choice in partnerships speaks volumes of the type of audience they want to align themselves with – first of all Jordan, now, well, that morning cesspit of personal strife and voyeuristic stone turning otherwise known as The Jeremy Kyle show.

I mean, come on Foxy Bingo marketing department, first of all you alienate 50% of your actual market, now you align yourself with a show of such utter crassness that it makes your eyes water. Dear me…
