66668 BONGO!!!

A new advert has appeared on our televisual viewscreens where someone shouts  "66668 BONGO!" and some children laugh at their mobile phones. We presume they're watching happy slapping videos.

But no, this is a fantastic new service that tells you stuff about yourself. All you have to do is give the providers of Bongo your full name, the town where you live, and of course they have your mobile number.

Bongo then Googles your name and tells you that your friends on Facebook think you're gullible for subscribing to a service where some marketing people now know your name, your phone number and where you live.

Hmmm... now what could they do with such information?

But who is this remarkable Bongo of whom we speak? Apparently,

"Bongo is a cheeky, funny, super-intelligent monkey.

He was born in the rainforests of Borneo and after showing early signs of super-intelligence (he could say the alphabet backwards in no less than 100 different languages at the tender age of onemonth), Bongo decided to explore beyond the rainforest. He has never looked back."

So what? I was born in the rainforests of Birmingham and I can do that too...

English: ZYXWVUT.....

French: ZYXWVUT.....

German: ZYXWVUT.....

I think you get the idea.

Anyway. The overall message here is DO NOT SUBSCRIBE TO STUPID STUFF ON YOUR MOBILE PHONE OR YOU WILL LIVE TO REGRET IT

Don't say we didn't warn you...
