Silly Sausages

Silly Sausages

Just a short one today.

The growth of online journalism has seen a massive increase in the number of articles out there, and with it the number of journalists, commentators and contributors. Some of it is excellent, some of it utterly pointless – for this, just check out the Daily Mail’s infamous sidebar of shame – and some of it downright awful. Read the rest of this entry »

Still here…

Still here...

Christmas has come and gone, and January is almost at an end… There has been plenty to write about this year, but I’ve been busy with other projects elsewhere. Lunchtimes have not been long enough, there is just too much to write about to the point where you are left wondering where to start, and I have been trying to accelerate my Schwarz und Weiß project. If you are interested in football, just click on through – if not, just click through anyway as it will help boost my rankings.

Who’s afraid of the Big Bad (Grey) Wolf?

Who's afraid of the Big Bad (Grey) Wolf?

Yep, it’s another Daily Mail Nazi (for that, read Adolf Hitler) story. I keep joking about articles placing the Führer in Latin America, and it appears that the folks at the DM have been reading my requests. Hurrah! Read the rest of this entry »

Ah, zoze Frenchies, hein?

Ah, zoze Frenchies, hein?

Although the Daily Mail continues to publishly frequent Nazi-related stories almost without fail, I have to admit that I have got rather bored of them. It’s just a case of the same old Scheisse, really: if it’s not some comical old wives’ tale about Josef Mengele’s long lost brother being found living among primitive tribes in Borneo, then it’s some story of some spectacular saluting dog called Adolf.

Liberate me ex inferis

Liberate me ex inferis

It has taken a mass mobilisation of the police, a sudden move towards what looks like instant justice and the usual soundbites and mealy-mouthed proclamations, but it finally appears that the spate of urban unrest and looting – or this phase of it at least – is over. As the dust is beginning to settle on the broken streets of England’s cities, who or what to focus our attention on is beginning to dominate the political agenda. Read the rest of this entry »

Like Medusa emerging from a lavatory bowl

Like Medusa emerging from a lavatory bowl

“Where has he been?” I hear you all ask. OK, the dozen of you that actually read my ramblings – not including myself, Caroline and the spammer who seems to think that random posts are “kewl” for no good reason. A number of things have happened since my last post, the biggest two being the royal wedding and the almost 24esque Osama bin Laden story. Oh, the fun. Read the rest of this entry »

Excuses, excuses…

Excuses, excuses...

The Daily Mail is fast turning into my favourite online comedy resource. Forget all those bawdy joke sites and funny videos involving cats, if you want real genuine lowbrow entertainment, there’s no better place to go than the Daily Mail online – the masters of the slow news and non-news story.

Daily Mail Story of the Week: But is it Art?

Daily Mail Story of the Week: But is it Art?

It’s incredibly hard keeping up with the Daily Mail and their stories about Adolf Hitler and the Nazis. I am convinced that if I were to analyse every story like that over the last couple of years alone, I could write a pretty hefty book about it. Of course, the book would itself generate its very own lurid Daily Mail headline – it’s enough to make one’s head implode. Read the rest of this entry »

And that, meine Freunde, is the hat-trick.

And that, meine Freunde, is the hat-trick.

Or should I say cat-trick… Yawn.

Yes, having made a very small allusion to this the other day whilst commenting on the silly “Hitler House” story, the good old Daily Mail delivers… By devoting an entire article to… Yes, cats that look like Hitler! You heard that right, folks – the hacks at the Britain’s most mockable tabloid have finally “discovered” the long-running website devoted to these feline Führers! Read the rest of this entry »

Two in two days.

Two in two days.

OK, I couldn’t help myself with writing about this one – a story of German troops during the Second World War being provided with the stimulant Pervitin to keep them alert. Not a new story to those of us who have studied this period, but apparently breaking news to the hacks at the Daily Mail who see it as one more opportunity to shoehorn Adolf Hitler into yet another ridiculous headline.
