Instead of trying to string sense out of the last few days – all Brexit everything, punctuated by Labour resignations trickling in like the slow, damp, farting release of breath from a let-down balloon – here’s a stupid, childish, excellent thing.
Apropos of nothing, I have written a very simple Chrome extension (and a Firefox add-on) that replaces references to Trump with any of several other aliases. The initial “seed” for the list came from Jezebel, which published a list of 70 such names for Trump’s 70th birthday.

My wonderful brother put me onto this, which replaces Donald Trump’s name with glorious insults, such as ‘bag of flour’ and ‘full-grown monopoly man carefully balancing a sponge cake atop his head’.
So if you’re a Guardian reader, instead of any standard-issue headline about the presidential hopefuls, this is what you get —>
It might have been a bleak week so far, but blanket Brexit coverage means I’ve only seen a dusting of these this weekend, so every time I see a Trump headline I forget what I’m reading and everything becomes just a little bit better.
