Mutley that’s insinuating that genuine news reporting has actually happened on this site. 😛

“… it sort of detracts from the genuine news reporting done here.” Mutley – can you cite any specific examples?

I was going to make a comment in regards to the dying due to an unfortunate gardening accident but I didn’t want to appear insensitive.

Damn you Thumper.

Probably best to keep these to 1 April, as it sort of detracts from the genuine news reporting done here. There are enough people crying “This site has gone downhill since….” without something like this adding to it.

Even though he didn’t exist, he still supported the SIEV X and worker’s rights. The socialist bastard. I hope he rots.

One of the many drummers in Spinal Tap died in an unfortunate gardening accident.

If this is a hoax – least you could have been original thumper.

And there is no seat of Cannalong.

This story has more holes than swiss cheese.

Or it’s supposed to be funny.

Never heard of him. Neither has Google. Couldn’t have been that prominent.
