Yet more biting, news-based satire

I've had it in my mind for a while to write, every week, something funny about, or inspired by, things from the news. Not necessarily satire; maybe just a short story. So, last Friday, to that end, I bought a couple of newspapers. Having finally got around to reading them, I can now report that:

1) The Countdown numbers game on the back of G2 is way more difficult than the telly version.
2) Unless it's already filtered through humour: good grief, the news bores me senseless.

Todays newspapers are but tommorrows fish and chip wrappers.

I'd write about fish and chips, but that would make me hungry.

[Why does blogger seem to be half in German today?]

Well, you made me hungry now.

[Might have something to do with my pony diet too, though.]

Everybody seems to be trying to make me hungry today: I just looked at your Venice photos.

[Fortunately, there's a Food Festival in Truro from tomorrow. Yum.]

[And drink. Cornwall Food and Drink Festival.]

[Sorry. It would have been kinder to have left out the link, wouldn't it? Damn.]

Well, after spending a week by stuffing monstrous amounts of food into my mouth, I will eat only carrots, apples and näkkileipä from now on.

[Ha. I almost believed myself for a second.]
