More Than Awkward…


I can’t really rag on this because working in ye old newspaper industry and also having been the editor of a newspaper I know how goddamn easily this can happen. Advertisers buy space, their ads are put on pages then editorial adds the real stuff and never the twane shall meet. Editorial has no say on where, when, how or why ads get placed. Sure, someone at the pointy end, in a case such as this should really have gone “hang on….” but swapping adverts to different pages just as you are going to press is nigh-on impossible. The advertiser has paid for that specific size on that specific page and basically that ain’t going to change with a snap of the fingers. Nevertheless. Massive FAIL.

I like gin, mittens and otters, not necessarily in that order. Here's some stuff I felt like writing down when I'm not chained to a desk writing other things for a living. Please use caution when using this site; there may be sweary words, cute animals and general bullshit. Don't say I didn't fucking warn you.

  1. Knowing nothing about how newspapers are made, I’m relieved to hear this probably wasn’t either deliberate or someone’s idea of a joke
