    Any news on "Agent" Jay?
    I knew that would float your boat. I saw Cathy from the bus the other day, strutting through town in a backless dress that swished "I'm IT! I'm IT! I'm IT!" with every sashayed step. And, do you know, she was IT. She really was, and I miss her constantly now. I can't stop thinking of her inky tailbone.

    Agent Jay and has ass-nipples have not made the local news for some time. I'd hate to think he was a flash in the pan attention seeker, committed to sensationalism rather than his Art. Perhaps he's signed an exclusive with a magazine or gallery?

    that's a bit racy. she kept her top on for the local news but one whiff of rioja and she's suddenly gone all Christine Keeler for the Spanish press. I've gone off her now.

    Mental illness is obviously not a laughing matter, however this bizarre story was the front page of the Cambridge Evening News today

    it's OK to head out for wonderful, but on your way to wonderful, you're gonna have to pass through all right. When you get to all right,
    take a good look around and get used to it, because that may be as far as you're gonna go.

    Surprised this story managed to sneak under the collective radar...

    Oooof.
    If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

    A MUM of three is dis-custard

    I like it best when the desperate journalist tries to add a bit of tabloid zing to the dull story.

    The casserole was retrieved by Mrs Stout and eaten

    This is a fine example of the journalistic use of the passive mode. As the interest of the reader is rivetted upon the fate of the sausage casserole, it is made the subject of the sentence. The reader is less concerned with who actually ate it.
    The passive mode is frequently used by lazy journalists to mask insufficient or unconvincing research, but here it's use is exemplary, putting the errant casserole at the very heart of the action.

    People drive from Belfast to Dublin for a Rugby match. They park their cars near the stadium, and, because they neglect to put enough money in the meter, they get clamped. This is apparently news.

    Bears dare for Jubilee celebration

    Published on Tuesday 1 May 2012 07:00

    A TEDDY bear zip wire from the top of the parish church spire will be part of Wood Ditton’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations on Sunday, June 3.

    Organiser Simon Gale said: “St Mary’s Church Council has agreed to host a once-in-a-lifetime event for your special teddy bear.

    “Any bears brave enough will have the opportunity to be strapped on and scoot to the floor. Nervous carers can be assured that full first aid facilities will be on hand, and that photos will be taken during descent, so the happy memories live on.”

    The event is open to all, with donations going towards new toilet facilities for the church.

    Contact Simon on 01638 731400 for more information.
