Funny story:  What do Germans think about the Euro-bailout?

What do Germans think about the Euro-bailout?

The Eurozone looks to be safe for the next few weeks after the heads of the 17 countries which use the Euro agreed to stuff more money in envelopes and throw them at Greece. But what do ordinary sausage-slapping Germans think of it? Germany has the most to lose from the current bailouts, as it is the richest country in the Eurozone - as well as the most warmongering. We asked several ordinary G...

Funny story:  The Protest Addicts

The Protest Addicts

There was surprise this week when the Winehouse Memorial Rehab Clinic announced that they have begun a new course for treating people for protest addiction. Although most protesters are too poor to afford the £10,000-a-go fees, there are enough wayward celebrity offspring and hippy lottery winners for the course to be turning a small profit. I spoke exclusively to one of the patients, who would...

Funny story:  A Letter From Auntie

A Letter From Auntie

Dear me, I can't remember your name, dear, but never mind. It's me, your Auntie. How are you doing? I'm not too bad. The operation went well but I still can't walk straight. I'll send you some photographs once the swelling has gone down a bit. Last week I had a terrible shock at the bingo, I won £10. I had a slap-up dinner of pork scratchings that night, let me tell you. I've nearly sav...

Funny story:  Cummerbunds and their role throughout history

Cummerbunds and their role throughout history

The humble cummerbund may seem to the unobservant like an unimportant garment, an optional extra on the otherwise complete tuxedo suit. But you would be wrong to think such a thing, for the cummerbund has played an important role throughout the ages. Indeed, it is likely you would not be alive today were it not for the cummerbund - okay, that's maybe an exaggeration, but it is at least theoretical...

Funny story:  The Secrets of German Economic Success

The Secrets of German Economic Success

As the European financial system collapses all around, there is one certainty - that the Germans will be ok. The German economy has stood proud with its moustache bristling for decades now, an economic miracle throughout bad times and good. So how has Germany managed to keep this up? I spoke to three economists to find out. Financier Goldie Goldstein thought the answer was obvious. "It's gold,"...

Funny story:  A Day In The Life Of A Spoof Writer

A Day In The Life Of A Spoof Writer

Call them failed journalists, failed authors or even failed spoof writers - just call them. A spoof writer's life is short but exciting, but these are after all the makers of dreams. That is, if you dream of badly written newspaper articles about things that didn't really happen. A typical spoof writer will begin his or her day at around midday. After a short glass of mother's ruin, he will gat...

"I was molested by a robot nun"

A priest has come forward to talk about his recent sexual abuse at the "inhuman" hands of the Catholic Church. The Church has been trying to modernise itself to get away from its medieval practices and poor reputation. To do this, it recently ordered a million robot nuns to help out at churches throughout the world. The priest agreed to talk to me on the grounds that he remain anonymous. His na...

Funny story:  Raising A Gender-Neutral Child

Raising A Gender-Neutral Child

Loony liberals, fag hags and Swedes are all followers of a new trend - raising a child to be "gender-neutral". The child is raised to not follow any traditional male and female role models, but to be open to influences from both. The ideas have been around for a while. Hippies in the 1960s began to question society's traditional ways of raising children - blue and Action man dolls for boys and...

Roman Britain: A Lesson From History

Britannia was known throughout the Roman Empire as being one of the most difficult provinces to govern. It required three entire legions to maintain order, compared with only one for the larger area of Hispania. The problem lay largely with the unruly natives, which the Romans named the Chavium. All we know about these people comes from Roman writers, as the native Britons were completely illit...
