There is, quite literally, a new breed of terrorist on the loose in America, and they’ve seemingly got the whole country quaking into its Stetson boots. The threat? Terror Babies.
Neither an infant black metal band nor a gothier sort of stuffed toy, the Terror Babies are, if certain US politicians are to be believed, a [...]
Remember when we were beaten by Germany at the World Cup? Yeah, you do, we got spanked like naughty children. There was something about it in the papers the day after, I think.
Anyway, apparently, ze Germans are claiming that they didn’t beat us just by being better than us – they won with science. According [...]
On page 4 of today’s Mail is an interesting little think-piece about motherhood and ethnicity in modern Britain.
A shy headline bellows: ‘Baby divide: Where just 1 in 10 mothers is white and British’, above a helpful map demonstrating the areas of Britain with the largest numbers of non-white or non-British new mothers.

In today’s gentle look at the American lunatic fringe, we will be examining the sinister links between cycling and the impending one-world government of the New World Order.

A Florida church is planning to burn a stack of Qurans on 11th September this year, in a tasteful effort to commemorate the ninth anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Centre.
The Dove World Outreach Center, a non-denominational church in Gainesville, is charmingly trying to rebrand 9/11 as International Burn A Koran Day. If [...]
Brace yourselves chocolate fans, because you could be in for a bit of a bumpy ride this year – there’s a feller trying to buy up the world’s supply of cocoa.
Hedge Fund manager Anthony Ward is looking ominously like a Bond villain for the modern era, with the news that he’s bought up 241,000 tonnes [...]
There’s quite the scandal brewing across the Atlantic at the moment, and for once it’s not one Liberals are having to watch through the cracks of their fingers.
