Rear Gunners

A strange thing I noticed on the train the other night…

Scourge of sane readers hungry for quality writing and objective reporting (and Ken Livingstone), the back page of the hateful London Evening Standard is the Sports Page. Just like all the other newspapers. So far, so mundane.

At the top of the page is a banner that reads “ES Sport”. The Standard, in their finite wisdom, have seen fit to use a useless, user-unfriendly font, and that fuckheaded trend for leaving out the space between words. Youknow, sothatallthewordsruntogether. Clever, no?


Anyway, a brief glance at the page made me think it said “Ass Port”.

I always knew the Standard was full of shit.
