The Daily Mash excel themselves again
Those people who think it is funny to post crude insults on the internet against anyone they disagree with could learn a lot about how to do satire properly from The Daily Mash.
Not all their material is suitable for a family audience, and doubtless if these guys were standing for office they would be rendered unelectable when their opponents started quoting out of context from posts like this or like this one.
But even when I vehemently disagree with the point of a joke they often make me smile, and they have two particularly clever parodies of today's news:
1) "Coulson 'knew he was going to resign' claims Guardian"
Former Number 10 press chief Andy Coulson must have known about his own resignation, the Guardian claimed today.
2) "Balls to be on television every day"
"A police protection officer has been suspended after destroying Britain's relationship with not having to look at Ed Balls.
Detective constable Paul Rice is understood to be devastated, insisting he had no idea his affair with Alan Johnson's wife would have such catastrophically nauseating consequences".
