This is just the kind of material that should be banned. You should be ashamed of yourself. You are, truly, a bad man.

The other week, someone was discussing Warning Notice stories, and I said I was going to try to write some stuff that got a Warning Notice. Today, I wrote two that both achieved this status:

Steve Fossett

and

Bridgend Council

I know, I know. I've got a better idea. You know the picture competition we sometimes have, where we have to write a story to fit the pic? Well, let's do a Warning Notice story competition instead.

I'll let you get that going QM. You're the bossess around here.

I wish they would! 2 stars for a funny satire based on a satire site. Lost points from me due to the bold type.
