Farewell, Tatler Alan

Andy McSmith

For reasons that I am unable to explain, more than 2,600 people have been following a twitter feed called @TatlerAlan, which purports to have been written by a Dachshund named Alan, belonging to Jennifer George, assistant editor of Tatler. On Sunday, Alan tweeted COLDWETMAGICALFLUFFYSHITFALLINGFROMTHESKY!? WHATISITWHATISITTTTT?! #snow That, I fear, is his final tweet. It has been confirmed that Alan is dead, killed in workplace accident: he was, reportedly, decapitated in the revolving door at Vogue House.

    You think the death of a pet is funny?

  • SpartacusMars

    You have an avatar from a show that specialising in mocking the afflicted… and now you’re criticising others for demonstrating a similar sense of humour?

  • creggancowboy

    The avatar was chosen as another site has a Moderator called Maggie who is bossy and Islamophobic hence “Mother Maggie and Jolly Farm” – now then what do you suggest I replace Stewie with? My last one was an IRA poster.

  • SpartacusMars

    Fair enough.

    How about keep up the cowboy theme and go with the best cowboy ever?

  • creggancowboy

    Your link did not come out so I went with the greatest cowboy of all, “Shane” and Jack Palance as “Wilson”

  • SpartacusMars

    You realise you had to replace (dot) with the . symbol, right?

    Of course you did, as I picked Palance.

  • creggancowboy

    Couldn’t you just type in the link like any normal person?!

  • SpartacusMars

    I could… but Disqus tends not to publish posts with URL in them.

    I guess, no way of knowing what was on ‘em. Worse since Lebedev bought it as a toy!
