Good morning, you rabble of delightful malcontents. As usual, we have plumbed the depths of our fair land’s journalist u-bend, and bring you the news equivalent of clumps of hair, soap scum, bits of skin and that weird gloopy grey stuff that is difficult to categorise. Enjoy…
10) A bit shrill
Telegraph columnist Julia Hartley-Brewer, who seems to be comprised entirely of stomach acid, Oil of Ulay and eyebrows, hates ‘modern’ feminists. So far, so predictable. Oh, what’s that Julia? You agree with Hynde and think sometimes women are asking for it? Or a woman in flimsy attire who’s had a few is the same as a house with it’s door wide open, while the usual occupants backpack around Peru? Ah that’s nice. Well done. Dear old Julia seems to imply that ‘The Sisterhood’ is essentially a bunch of hate-filled bitches, mainly for saying that the only person who causes a rape is (drumroll) a rapist! Gosh, how seditious.
Her use of the word ‘squeals’ is interesting. It’s so rare that feminists are categorised as shrill or noisy… Personally, I’d rather listen to a mix tape of a feminist banshee wailing politically correct ditties with Noddy Holder and Edith Piaf, than hear, say, the dulcet-toned, Queen of Audiobooks, Juliet Stephenson, reading aloud JHB’s malodorous opinions. Though I doubt Stephenson, or anyone worth their salt, could read that acrid toss out loud without wanting to swallow their own tongue.
9) Dear The Sun, you are bum
Ah The Sun, where rays of twatty light shine into the dark crevices of idiocy. They’ve ask six new mums to whip off their clobber, be photographed, and tell us how they feel about the endless barrage of whippet-thin slebs who are doing joggercize and yogic flips before they’ve even had time to sauté their placentas.
Does it take some kind of freakish genius to guess that pretty much all of them feel that most women, including aforementioned slebs, feel under huge pressure to look good at all times? Even after having just sprogged? No, didn’t think so.
Where on Earth might this pressure come from, The Sun? It’s a toughie. Hey! Maybe it could be a fun quiz!

8) Express exposes truth about woman’s libidinous desires, because tits
Hmmm. This Express ‘article’ sounds an awful lot like the kind of monologue one might hear from a twat in the pub:
Twat: Cop a load of this lads, this bird ‘ere says ‘I’m not that sexual’ but leaves the house with her tits and midriff and legs and we’re supposed to just believe her? Heh. She’s got skin and tits and a cracking set of pins [rubs thighs involuntarily] so obviously she’s just frothing at the gusset for some action. Right lads? Heh heh. Tits. [Twat chugs back dregs, exits stage left and tosses himself off irately in the gents with the picture of Emily Ratajkowski].
7) Nob assurance
Lads, stop worrying; women aren’t that bothered about nob size so, for the LOVE OF GOD, stop comparing yourself to other blokes – The Sun says you’re fine as you are.
Now, here are ten willion photoshopped pictures of models with massive knockers bending over in hot pants, a Woman section full of fat shaming stories and a photo guide to help you decide who should win an arse contest in Brazil. Ahhh, equality.
6) Fanny Watch
As predicted, in The Week in Sexist News 28/11/14, there is a currently a Mail journalist camped just outside Kim Murrays’ vagina. You would be able to see her, but I think that’s what she’s actually trying to ‘hide’ behind that bag. And might also be why she’s looking a bit disturbed.
5) Mortified mother buys tampons
I have no idea what this Daily Mail headline means.
Why is it embarrassing to say ‘bum’ in Waitrose? I said much worse when I was charged £2.79 for an effing cabbage. Or is it the tampon buying that’s supposed to be embarrassing? And why is this woman shoving string up her back passage?
I remember once asking my mother why the cat had string up its arse, but it turned out to be worms. Worms, all over my best cardigan. Cheers Sooty.
4) Asset spillage
Oh look at Leaky MacHayek, spilling her assets all over the bloody pavement. And mark my words, it’ll be the tax payer who foots the cleaning bill. I’m sick of this country. I’m off to read the Express.
3) Woman pretends to be sexually aroused by ready meals, for money
Here’s a woman I’ve never heard of, in a Sun photo special, eating pizza in some see-through knickers and squirting Anchor whipped cream in her gob. That’s badass, innit? What a wild, crazy afternoon that must have been.
I had a similar experience with squirty cream in 1986, when I was overexcited about a flan. I swallowed half the can, including the nozzle. I had the shits for the best part of Spring bank. These days, when I want to be flirty on my own in my kitchen, I just have straightforward sex with a box of Birds Eye potato waffles. They really are versatile.
2) The elephant in the room
Oh my EYES. Won’t some save me from Carol’s horrific ELEPHANT LEGS??? No amount of sequins will rectify that NIGHTMARE. Quick, focus on her tits instead – oh, what’s that Daily Express, you already have – in 15,089 other articles? Great, thanks.
1) Omissions and Clarifications
When I typed ‘Women’s Rugby’ into the search bar on The Sun‘s website…
And yet, the England women’s team won the world cup last year. Huh. There’s obviously been a massive mistake, The Sun usually cover women’s sport really well.
Well, wasn’t that nice? If you’re anything like us, you’ll be feeling like you’ve just unclogged a drain, but without the triumph. So, basically, you’re metaphorically standing in marigolds with a handful of dripping, stinky gak, and you’re too far away from the bin not to get half of it all over the floor. Yum.
We’re taking a short break as we’re off on our hols next week; Flora is going for some sun, sea, sangria and sunburn and Iris is off to be a bit pretentious in a beret in Eastern Europe. There will be the usual titting about on Twitter from Iris and some Fashion on Facebook, but we will be back in full force on the 25th darlings. Au revoir xxx
You are a ray of light after a week of being submerged in so much misogynistic shite.
Fuck em all
Thank God for sisterly sanity!
I choked on my tea at the Waitrose story. Thanks for that! I hope you both have wonderful holidays.
Bloody love this blog. Thank you .
“These days, when I want to be flirty on my own in my kitchen, I just have straightforward sex with a box of Birds Eye potato waffles.”
I bloody love you. Thanks for the sanity and laughs.
Another fine Sexist News update. If I didn’t have this wonderful summary every week, I wouldn’t know how to pose erotically over *household item*, or exactly what penis size I should be enjoying. Phew, the relief that our Red Tops gives us…talking of red tops, did you see Emily Ratajkowski knockers in that thing called clothes? Cooooorrrrrrrrrr.
