Is satire journalism? The brains behind The Daily Mash, in my opinion this country's most consistently funny satire site, are former Scotsman reporters. They think what they do is news by other means. You do not need to agree to enjoy their pointed humour and sharp writing. Enjoy, object, just don't suggest it should be banned. After all, sticks and stones may fracture those hard skeletal bits inside me, but... etc. Among today's topics the coverage of Gordon Brown's gaffe is funny and I particularly like the piece about Adrian Chiles and badgers. You will just have to read it.
