The Filthy Beast began on 9/11 2009. In early 2011 we were hacked by an invidious penis product, which shall remain nameless. Because blessings and crosses often come hand in hand, we took the opportunity provided to restructure the site, including deleting a majority of the posts. Cleaning them up was not possible. We went from about 300 posts down to around 15. The posts that remain were, in my opinion, the best of the bunch and worth saving.
And, in case you had the slightest curiosity, let me state for the record that this blog’s name comes from the invective hurled by Leslie Caron at Cary Grant, “Mr Eckland is a rude, foul-mouthed, drunken, filthy beast,” in Father Goose.
