Sir James Dyson has a marvellous sense of humour.

Included with a new Dyson cleaner that we have recently bought is a little booklet called “The story of Dyson”. On page 8 there is a photo of one of his dinky digital motors above the heading “Carbon free”. Here is an extract from the blurb - the punch line is in the last sentence: “The Dyson digital motor is different. Controlled by a microchip it spins up to 98,000 rpm - five-times faster than a Formula 1 car engine. Because of its speed, the digital motor is half the size and half the weight of conventional motors. With no brushes or fixed magnets, it doesn’t emit carbon either.”

On the home page, the beeb have hit the double jackpot:
‘Eco mosque’ opens for prayers in Cambridge.

The architects behind the UK’s “first green mosque” say the building will be a “cultural bridge” for Islam in Britain in the 21st Century […]
It boasts zero carbon on-site emissions, rainwater harvesting and air source heat pumps.

... doh anywhere with no gas has zero carbon on-site emissions

I re-visited biasedbbc this morning, despite my misgivings, and it was worth it for a link to this gem, in the Guardian in January 2007, back in the days when I used to read it regularly:

"The BBC's cultural Marxism will trigger an American-style backlash
Intolerant and consumed by political correctness, the corporation is waging an Orwellian campaign against British values"

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2007/jan/24/comment.comment

I agree with almost every word. 12 years on, and it's looking pretty prescient, IMO.
