Daily Mail Picnic. Friday Flash Fun.

It would have been funny, had it not been to the "Teddy Bears' Picnic" song. That was my favorite book when I was little. You can mock my politics, you can tell me my dog smells funny (she does), you can tell me I smell funny (I d-- ohwait), but The Teddy Bears' Picnic must remain undefiled.

I saw this this morning at Mail Watch, Here you get the front pages of the UK papers Daily Mail and Express.

I guarantee you that every single monday (and sometimes extra bonus days in the week), the express will run a front page with a story about ex-person Diana (you know - used to be a princess or something. I sh*t you not, go look in the archives.....

Meccabilly: the most fun part is that no-one else cares at all about Diana... only the Express. It's crazy.

Well, that was wittier than I expected. Still, I feel ill now. But that always happens when I see the words "Daily" and "Mail" juxta posed. As the wonderful Mr Stephen Fry so rightly observed:

"There's a name for my pain - the Daily Mail. It symbolises bourgeois fear: fear of outsiders, fear of anything different. Someone should write a book about how uniquely wrong about everything the Daily Mail has always been. It typifies everything that is most shaming about this country in terms of its lurches towards xenophobia and fear: everything in the name of the family, that horrible capital F for family. It's become what the state was for a Stalinist: everything that is done in the name of the family is acceptable."

I have no idea where the space in "juxtaposed" came from. Fickle Friday fingers, I damn thee.

Great to see Noel Edmonds in there. The most vile man in the United Kingdom.
