Humour Don't Sell Papers

 

I've just read today's paper

It's full of doom and gloom

Murders, killing, destruction, death

Children being groomed

 

Headlines blare out constantly

SEX FIEND IS EXPOSED

There's so much negativity

(The paper I have closed)

 

Why can't I read, enjoy myself?

With lots of humour, rife

Instead of being subjected to

This gutter side of life

 

 

Humour don't sell papers....

 

Oh...

You're so right Ruth. Much of the humour for my own website is gleaned from those little 100 word columns tucked away in the corner....

seek and ye shall find Don! Humour is always hidden in those tiny columns of around 100 words 😉

Never judge a paper by the cover... Unless its the Sun, or Mirror, or Daily Star, or the Guardian, or the FT or, or, well any newspaper really.

Come back 'Andy Cap' all is forgiven.

You get a lot of humour in the Guardian, although to be fair it's not always intentional.

Brian, serves me right going to the local Sweatie caff.

Beano sounds like a comic? Is it about Boris or Donald?

Don, you made the mistake of reading the Scottish edition...they're a dour lot the Sweaties!

Anyway, if you want fun buy The Beano.
