After a tense meeting where no Brexit breakthrough was made, where plans to extend the UKs transition period are at odds with MPs at home, Prime Minister Theresa May has expressed a deep-seated wish to go home, according to an a member of the Brexit negotiating team who found her sitting on a fire escape in the EU summit building in Brussels and swigging from a hip flask.
Theresa looked tired and I asked her if she was OK, said the official, who wishes to remain anonymous. She sighed, lit a cigar and said: What is a Brexit, Dominic? It isnt even a real word. I know Brexit means Brexit. But I dont know what the first Brexit means never mind the second. And whats a backstop? A field position in hockey or something a plumber uses, for all I know.
Mrs May went on to confess that she simply does not have the answer to Brexit. She told me Olly Robbins says he knows the answer but hes in talks with Netflix about turning the whole Article 50 thing into a twelve-part docudrama, with Eddie Redmayne playing me. By now, I was staring at my shoes and wishing I had taken up that dinner invite from the Luxembourg trade commission.
The PM continued: I had a dream last night that I was happily running through a field of wheat with my dog Toto when I noticed words forming on the groundhog and they all said Brexit. Then the ground started to fracture between my feet, and the more ground I tried to gain to avoid the fracture the more my heels were digging in. Then the sound of a noisy combine harvester began to chase me driven by Corbyn of the East, and the sheaves of wheat turned into everyone in the UK, with Boris and Jacob laughing, then Toto turned into Totony Blair and he was leaping about, barking, What about me? What about me?.
The anonymous negotiator added: At this point the PM told me to give Brexit to the boffins at Bletchley Park, or take it to a charity shop. She then closed her eyes, clicked her heels together and said, Theres no place like Home Office, three times. Im not sure if her wish was granted, though as a group of party officials came and asked her to step aside because shed been blocking the exit.
CLANCY OVERELL | Editor | CONTACT The Australian public have been fortunate enough to have every breath, blink and step of the Duke and Duchess of Sussexs visit covered by a very dedicated and desperate Aussie media industry. However, the Advocate has managed to find an angle of the royal story that has yet to be touched. Meghan Markles

HOUSTON Local man Carlos Berry is suspected of going from ironic enjoyment of the Flat Earth or Death Facebook group to a very genuine belief that the Earth is flat, according to concerned sources.
He started out only doing this stuff on the weekends I figured this would be a little phase, like the time he got way too into Juggalo or Incel Facebook groups, admitted close friend and roommate Michael Thadwick. But then he started calling me a Glober, and asking for help with homemade rocket experiments. He says its dumb and hes just doing it as a joke, but he seems to spend a lot of free time on it.
Thadwick noted that the way his friend presents himself at work or out with friends is very different from his activities at home.
He goofs on the flat Earth people all the time when hes bartending which is odd, because at home, first thing he does when he wakes up is check that Facebook group, Thadwick said. I think hes actually an admin now. Im worried he cant stop. He might have a serious problem.
For his part, Berry claimed he has always had a passion for out-of-the-ordinary subcultures.
I once spent an entire day on Twitter trying to get Alex Jones to confirm my pet frog was gay. Other people cheered me on! It was hilarious, Berry said. I could quit this flat Earth thing any time I just dont want to.
Plus, we have a local meet up next week and I volunteered to bring the pasta salad. My hands are literally tied, he added.
Ironically, the concept of a flat Earth seems to go against Berrys own familys beliefs.
Im not sure what C is doing with these Facebook posts lately his father has worked at NASA for going on 30 years, said his mother, Nina Berry. I just hope hes not hanging around that weird dark web crowd again.
At press time, Berry was pricing flights to Denver International Airport as a gag.

Saudi Arabia has investigated the mysterious disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi and found that he has died from completely natural causes, according to official spokesman Mohammed Bin Lynr. These were. principally, blood loss, breathing failure and the fact that his heart had ceased to beat. He then proceeded to dismember himself, for reasons unkown despite energetic intervention by members of the staff who endeavoured to persuade him to get a grip and to pull himself together.
Before they could assist further, the staff were interrupted by the landing of a flying saucer, Bin Lynr continued. A troop of alien beings emerged from the craft, seized the dismembered remains and promptly beamed themselves up again. They had tried to give us some story about wanting his body parts in order to study the anatomy of human beings as if we are gullible enough to believe some obviously nonsensical made-up rubbish like that.
BURBANK, Calif. Warner Brothers has announced that the next edition in the DC Extended Universe will be an adaptation of the Nintendo 64 video game Superman 64. The film will be helmed by usual DC director Zack Snyder and will star Henry Cavill as Superman.
We have gotten a lot of things wrong in the past, but this time we are 100% sure our movie is going to be a hit, said President of DC Films, Walter Hamada, at a press conference. Aside from maybe Superman v Batman: Dawn of Justice, Im not sure theres any Superman appearance that nailed the character better than the N64 game. Thats what Supermans all about flying around or whatever it is he does.
Hamada went on to explain that the film, which will keep the title Superman 64, will be an exact adaptation of the original video game, except that it will be darker and grittier as well as light-hearted with a lot of fun jokes, unless theres a new Marvel film with a stealable gimmick or the test audience doesnt like large portions of the film, which will change drastically.
We are especially excited to announce that we have secured legendary character actor Paul Giamatti to play the iconic Superman 64 rings that Henry [Cavill] will fly through in the film, Hamada continued. We are going to set him up in a motion-capture suit and he has been working with working with physical trainers to prepare for taking on the ring-shape of the characters.
Fans of the franchise have responded negatively online.
Please dont make me do this, exclaimed Twitter user @HenryCavill. I have a family. I cant put them through another Superman movie, not like this.
At press time, the official DC Facebook page posted a promo photo of Cavill surrounded by fog with the caption Fuck it, we already greenlit two Superman 64 sequels and one spin-off movie. #StopTheRings
FORT WORTH, Texas Fervent Beto ORourke supporter Ritchie Garza attended a fundraiser event for the U.S. Senatorial candidate late last week, at which he arrived with one six-pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer, but no donation money, sources confirmed.
As Texans, we welcome people from all walks of life, said event organizer Mandy Allen, handing out $5 Lone Star tall cans. Even townies who only go to shows if theyre on a guest list. But recent polls show Cruz is pulling further ahead of ORourke, so we need more critical support than ever.
The event, which featured local punk bands, grassroots organizers and speakers, as well as a cash bar with all proceeds going to ORourkes campaign, was a huge draw for Garza, who really likes Beto despite being strapped for cash at the moment, you know how it is.
Its chill. Im sharing that video of Beto skating in the Whataburger lot on Facebook right now, Garza said. Gotta raise awareness. Every little bit really does count.
The event was well-attended by nearly 40 tirelessly-working activists in addition to Garza, who allegedly asked various attendees if Cedric Bixler-Zavala would be making an appearance.
He said he couldnt donate money yet because hed spent it on beer, which is the only thing that makes his back pain better, said fundraiser attendee Shana Pagels. When I told him about ORourkes stance on healthcare, and that phone-banking from home was something with which volunteers with disabilities were having a lot of success, he said something about his phone being broken even though I definitely saw him Instagramming all night so Im not expecting much.
Asked if he felt empowered to support or spread the word about ORourkes campaign, Garza was quick and enthusiastic in his response.
Totally, he said, setting down an empty PBR can next to the recycling bin. This Beto sticker right here? Its more than a sticker it sends a message. Im gonna put it on the most visible part of the bottom of my skateboard.
At press time, Garza was overheard confirming that the Beto for Senate stickers were, indeed, free.

The Islamist hate preacher, Anjem Choudary, who was jailed in 2016 for encouraging people to support terror group Islamic State, has been released from Belmarsh Prison after two years. LBC presenter, James OBrien discussed the clerics rise with his listeners, at one point making this point.
LBC (@LBC) October 19, 2018
Two cheeks of the same backside seems quite accurate, and it makes it all the more suspicious that the far-right protesters who taped up their mouths in support of Tommy Robinson didnt make the same argument about Choudary. What could possibly be the reason?
Amidst all the facts and outrage, some people treated his release with the contempt it deserves.
I cant help be suspicious that the vile Anjem Choudary has been released just in time for Im a Celebrity.

A spokesperson for Kimberley-Clark, the manufacturers of Kleenex Mansize tissues, has denied that the company was giving in to a consistent increase of complaints on gender concerns about the name of its tissue brand. The company insists scrapping the Mansize branding from its tissue boxes had nothing to do with sexism but it was mainly because the tissues are nothing like the size of a man, not even a very small one, unless he is about 15 metres away, but then the shape would still be all wrong.
The companys marketing department toyed with various new names, including Big sneeze-sized, Massive bogey-sized and Catch-a-load, the discreet bedside tissues, before settling simply for Extra Large. After all, Its only a bit of absorbent paper that youre going to chuck away as soon as youve used it, said the spokesperson. Although, as part of the rebrand, we are considering printing a series of pictures on the box illustrating suggested uses.

We have a saying in the business. Four words should follow a lie Terms and conditions apply, said publisher Jason Harper, as T&C marketing takes off, this sector is well overdue a trade publication that caters for the stakeholders in misleading marketing.
Issue One has a picture of the chairman of Galliard Homes, an investigation into the seedy world of the Advertising Standards Agency and a celebrity interview with Dave Breathless, star of radio adverts. Breathless tells how he nearly fainted after reading out a two minute conditions apply segment for a Virgin Media advert, without a single pause. When I came to, I was wearing an oxygen mask, and the marketing manager of Virgin Media was trying to make me sign a waiver, he said.
T&C Magazine (incorporating Conditions Apply) has a circulation of a million ABC1s with disposable income of over 100,000, cash in the bank of on average Half a million pounds and proven levels of gullibility, said Harper. At least, thats what were telling the advertisers.
I guarantee any advertiser will quadruple their business turnover, or I promise I will personally give you ten times your money back, said Harper, before adding furtively legibus et condicionibus esto applicare.

If theres one thing Hollywood loves, its a Batman reboot weve had dark Batman, followed by a succession of less-dark Batmans Batmen? and back to dark Batman again, with Christian Bales incarnation being particularly successful. Although hes Welsh, it seems he isnt Welsh enough for these hopefuls in a new sketch from BBC Sesh, the Welsh talent showcase.
Featuring Welsh comedians Simon Emanuel and Ignacio Lopez, this makes us wish someone would run with it and do a feature-length version, featuring Bruce Wynne as Batman, with his faithful sidekick, Rob Wynne.
The edited highlights of the script include:
Isnt it time we had a Welsh Batman?
Christian Bales Welsh.
Pembrokeshire doesnt count.
Think about it. Gotham is a grim, Gothic metropolis, constantly dark and dreary Newport!
Bruce Wynne goes undercover to capture a ring of bicycle thieves.
So, whats your superpower, then?

So, who we fightin today then, Batman?

For the past several years, the Will Toledo-led indie music project Car Seat Headrest has been stunning fans with their amazing albums, catchy hooks, and introspective lyrics. Now, it seems they may have inspired a successor!
Noah Pattinson, a depressed english major who studies rhetoric and writing at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana has been mumbling to himself a lot recently and may just be the next Car Seat Headrest.
In recent weeks Pattinson has been spotted in Ball States Bracken Library quietly mumbling to himself for often hours at a time, and Car Seat Headrest fans cant help but take notice.
Yeah, I see him studying here all the time, and I think hes got something special, says nursing student Rachel Bingsley. The way he quietly mumbles to himself like he instantly regrets every word coming out of his mouth is so in line with what Will Toledo does on all of his songs. I havent been able to make everything he says out, but Ill hear him say words like failure, teen, and circumstance pretty often. If that doesnt sound like Will Toledo, then I dont know what does.
Even though Noah reportedly prefers to keep to himself at a specific desk in the corner to attract as little attention as possible, his potential hasnt gone unnoticed. Brett Genty, a music student, once stood behind him while gently strumming an acoustic guitar, scoring Noahs anxious, deeply personal mumblings. I recorded it and put it online. I tried passing it off as a lost Car Seat Headrest demo, and shockingly enough, everyone believed me. I saw all sorts of comments and articles about Will Toledos raw genius, and Pitchfork even gave it Best New Track. No ones even corrected it yet, not even the band themselves. I think this kid and his self-loathing-induced grumbles really have a future.
When asked about his future and newfound skill, Noah was pretty cryptic. He slightly raised his voice above an abject mumble but not to a level thats close to something youd call talking, announcing that failure is the curse of the conscious, and I am wide awake. No matter what he meant by that, were sure that Noah represents a bright future for the mumbliest of depressing indie rock music.

The dirty tricks employed in the Wentworth by-election campaign have sunk even lower after voters were sent a fake email that linked candidate Dave Sharma to the Liberal Party.
This is a crude effort to discredit me, definitely the work of Russian hackers, claimed Sharma after several thousand voters received the message in their inbox. Someone has photoshopped me into a picture next to Scott Morrison and well be taking legal action against the perpetrator if we can locate them.
Theyve even gone as far as hiring a John Howard lookalike to stalk me. Its been very frightening.
Im prepared to fight hard but Id never stoop so low as to accuse someone of being a Liberal, said independent frontrunner Dr Kerryn Phelps. Still all Dave needs to do is show us his application form just to clear up any doubts.

Guardian columnist Owen Jones is set to be unveiled as the new James Bond in a surprise move from the franchise. It was something of a surprise for us too, admitted Barbara Broccoli of EON Productions. We had been in detailed negotiations with James Madden. However we received a Twitter PM from Jones saying that he had already self-identified for the role, so that was that really.
A lengthy discussion is underway between EON and Joness agents to thrash out the nature of this latest incarnation of the beloved spy. According to insiders, Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott is odds-on favourite to take on the role of M from Judi Dench. She showed just the right amount of affected superiority, commented one anonymous source. Though Im not sure she was actually acting. Anyway, it was that or have her coming out of the sea in a bikini.
Were really hoping that Jones will usher in a more millennial, woke, incarnation of a much beloved former playboy-spy, remarked Ian Mountford of Universal Pictures. Jones may not be the obvious archetype for an action hero, but he has hidden talents. His reflexes are razor sharp we were amazed by his 180 degree about-turn over Jeremy Corbyns electability on election night. We had to slow the film down several times to see it clearly enough.
Rumours had started to circulate after Jones had published a series of tweets hinting at his new role: The names Jones, Owen Jones, licence to pontificate and No Mr Blair, I expect you to stand trial in the International Criminal Court. Although no suitable Fleming books have been found for the first Jones-helmed Bond movie, a number of loose adaptations have been touted, including Thunderflounce, The Spy Who Blocked Me On Twitter and Muckraker, where Bond destroys the underground headquarters of the sinister MSM organisation, with a scathing anti-centrist editorial.
Well certainly have to make some concessions to the usual Bond tropes for Mr Jones, admitted director Cary Fukunaga. He came into the first production meeting with a T- shirt saying Sinister intruders with a cod-Soviet accent welcome here, so hes clearly not up for garrotting them with his wristwatch. However hes got some pretty good double entendres ready. We particularly liked I usually only swing wildly to the left, but in your case, Im prepared to make an exception.

The Millennial scourge that has rained destructive terror upon our countrys traditional, sentimental product industry has turned its locust-like cataclysmic power on the proud condiment sector of our economy. And the first victim is Americas number five favorite sandwich accompaniment: mayonnaise.
Mayonnaise men! Titans of industry! I submit to you that it is time for us, the proud lubricators of this great nations sandwiches, to strike back against the villainous and highly-desirable advertising demographic of 22-38 year olds with a killing stroke of our own! We must start killing Millennials!
Many sacred American institutions have already fallen victim to the murderously passive-aggressive Millennial conspiracy golf, inescapable mortgage debt, so-called breastaurants, casual rape culture but as CEO of Meat Jelly Mayo, I am issuing a call to arms to all of my brothers in mayonnaise. Kraft, Heinz, Hunts and Hellmanns have all diversified through ketchup, mustard, relish, and tapenade (whatever that is) to the point where they can survive a mayo collapse. Do not envy them my mayonnaise brethren, for they are no longer pure! But here at Meat Jelly, mayo is our bread and butter or, rather, our bread and mayo and so we are especially vulnerable to this relentless attack on our livelihood. We will not fold like some weak-sauce imitator. Were not Miracle Whip. We are mayo!
We have remained true to the notion that eggs beaten into oil can make a sandwich tastier and we will not go silently into the night!
The mayonnaise industry has tried to get through to Millennials via creative marketing strategy. Yes, perhaps trying to lure them in with alternative mayonnaises, such as Meat Jelly Woke! Mayo with Caffeine or Meat Jelly Flamin Hot Cheetos-Flavored mayo product was ill-advised. The Mayor Naise comic book character we created was deemed a highly-insulting and spectacular failure. I concede that attempting to rebrand these people as Mayolennials was our biggest misfire yet. But you cannot say we have not tried! You can maybe say that we have not tried very hard, if you want me to target you next.
But murder goes against my precious Judeo-Christian value system! you whine. Well, then, I could be persuaded to try a policy of systematic capture and re-purposing of Millennials. Avocado toast-based honey traps could be strategically placed throughout various, pre-gentrified urban areas. With the Millennials in captivity, they would be repurposed into wage slaves to prop up social security, or they could be used as Mad Max-style blood bags for Baby Boomers. I am open to ideas, which is my strength as a Captain of Industry. Meat Jelly didnt become known for the slogan: Meat Jelly Mayo: Its like Vanilla for Sandwiches! by accident. One thing is for sure, we cannot let our sacrosanct condiment industry suffer another da...

DERRY TOWNSHIP, Penn. A group of Reeses fans unveiled a new crowd sourced website that documents the expanding Reeses universe during a press conference held outside of Hersheys corporate office today.
Everytime I step foot into a Walgreens or a CVS theres a new Reeses product that makes me go what the fuck is a Reeses Cruncher? said the wikis head programmer Etta Millington. So it made sense to use crowdsourcing to document eighty-nine different variations of Reeses products.
While the Hersheys corporation is not directly responsible for the new site, representatives of the company have given the project their full backing. We are both excited and humbled by the level of emotional investment and constant confusion that comes from our fan base, said spokesperson Carol Ramsey. Rest assured, we have no plans of slowing down when it comes to exploring just how many unnecessary ways you can combine peanut butter and chocolate.
Following the announcement, fans of the candy universe immediately took to social media to voice their opinions. We really needed this, wrote forum member StopSayingPeesiz47. Last time I was in a Exxon I saw a package claiming that Reeses sold a peanut butter cup with Reeses Pieces inside it. I thought somebody was fucking with me but thanks to the wiki, I now know this is a real product created by a Reeses executive who really wanted to go home and see his family.
However, some fans remained skeptical of the crowd sourced nature of the page. Do you honestly think a bunch of pb cup normies are going to be able to distinguish between [Reeses] Fastbreak, Nutrageous and Eyeballs? wrote Reddit user NutRaginOnYrGurl. Were gonna have to wade through so much crap on this page.
Despite the handful of negative reactions, fans remained largely supportive of the project. Its super important that we get this established fast, wrote Vera Hallinger in a recent Facebook post. Reeses has a new Netflix show coming out and if some corporate SJW replaces a white chocolate big cup with a dark chocolate one Im gonna flip my shit.

In what many in the world of music are seeing as a surprise move, hard-rocking heavy metal supergroup, AC/DC, have announced their next release, Fandabbydozy, will be a modern-day rock opera based on the lives of The Krankies.
Guitarist Angus Young said: Because behind that knockabout slapstick style there are some really serious contemporary issues being tackled head on. For example, gender fluidity. You cant tell me that a mature woman dressed as a schoolboy for decades hasnt been doing cutting-edge pioneering work in this area. One track, Who Really am I? explores this through the medium of a fifteen-minute guitar solo.
Axl Rose, the groups vocalist aadded: Hey, and what about them coming out as having been swingers? Forget driving Harleys into swimming pools or snorting Coke off naked hookers, The Krankies are real rock and roll crazy guys. The final cut on the album, Ten Bangs a Night, is inspired by all that shit, man.
DAYTON, Ohio Wise punk elder Jerry Solly Solowicki was asked to mediate this week between two bands that each claimed ownership of one of the Dayton scenes few drummers, ultimately decreeing the drummer be sliced in half to ensure equal reward, mystified onlookers confirmed.
For a few months now, our drummer has been in what he called a fun side project, which sounded like no big deal, said Eighth Place guitarist Tom Whitcroft. But when we hear hes playing a few out of town gigs with them, and even telling them that were the side project I knew we had to take this matter to Solly.
Witnesses testified Solowicki thoroughly studied the countenance of both bands presenting their claims, and by means of penetrating wisdom, decreed that the drummer should be bisected and split among the two bands.
Solly was just rubbing his forehead the whole time, looking real annoyed. Then, out of the blue, he screamed, Bring me a knife! Cut the drummer in two, and give half to one, and half to the other, said Rage Station vocalist Andy Mulligan. I thought it was a super dumb plan, but I yelled dibs on the top half anyway. I didnt wanna be stuck with a no-arm drummer who is all bass drum and high hat.
However, Whitfield, alarmed by this violent ruling, pleaded with Solowicki to let the drummer remain whole and play with the side project, as it betters the scene to not potentially lose one of its precious few drummers.
Thats when we all realized the true intention of Sollys ruling: he didnt really believe the drummer should be cut in half at all, but instead wanted to prove that me and my other bandmates were the drummers true owners, said a relieved Whitcroft.
Solowicki later admitted, however, that Whitcrofts assumption was not at all his intention.
Ill be honest, I was hungover as balls and just wanted these dudes to stopping talking about this bullshit, said Solowicki later. I wouldve been straight up O.K. with them murdering the drummer and burying his two halves in a shallow grave if it meant theyd leave me alone. These pop-punk dudes really need to grow the fuck up and get a life already.

Being 17 has many positives, such as still having someone else to cook your meals, as well as good health and reasonable eyesight most of the time but it comes with worries about schoolwork, finding your own voice and dealing with peer pressure. When one young man developed quite a crush on a beautiful transgender girl at his school, he was very worried about what his schoolmates might think. He decided to ask Reddit for advice.
This is what he posted.
Unfortunately, not everyone sees her as he does.
Its mostly a male problem.
The relationship has reached a crossroads.
Alongside knitted symbols of paganism and wrought iron sex toys, one careful artisan, Lord Summerisle, has listed a huge man-shaped sculpture of woven twigs, with minor scorch marks around the base on Etsy. For those who like their live sacrifices with a touch of hipster chic, this says Celtic fertility rites, but with a touch of home-brew. It has room for several unwanted children and is suitable for harvest festivals or stag dos.
The listing reads: A once in a lifetime fire-sale. Dont leave your apple crops to chance. Our Wicker Man will provide you with financial security, now that your EU subsidy is coming to an end. Would suit a virgin, Scottish detective or ardent Brexiteer. Lord Summerisle is also offering a line of cosplay outfits, an edible phallus and one burnt policemans hat. A spokeswoman for Etsy admitted: Its an unusual listing. You cant fault the craftsmanship, but if you want to sacrifice virgins surely a holiday to Magaluf is cheaper?

The candidates on BBC Ones The Apprentice were tasked with making tempting, professional-standard doughnuts to sell to corporate and individual clients as is so often the case, it was a bit of a sh*tshow. During the development stage, a doughnut flavoured with chilli actually caused a candidate, Frank, to choke yet they still proceeded to offer it for sale.
Another big problem was the price they set, which was 5 per doughnut or four for 16. This was particularly hard for people to stomach, as these 19 reactions illustrate.
#theapprentice shows how different London is to the rest of the country. Imagine going around Birmingham or Manchester and trying to flog a DOUGHNUT for 5. Youd get laughed out the place and probably a smack in the gob for your troubles

Bharat Maheshwari, a bullock cart driver from the slums of Mumbai, has announced plans to build up his brand recognition in order to win market share. This will form the centrepiece of his second five-year growth strategy after the success of his first one enabled him to buy a 25% stake in the bullock itself.
This is a competitive market, with over 75,000 of us in Mumbai alone, Maheshwari explained to analysts, and its very easy to see one man goading a bullock to pull goods to market by sticking a stave coated in chilli powder up its arse as much like any other. I am therefore exploring ways to differentiate myself through brand image.
Rather than sell one of his daughters into prostitution in order to fund a big-bucks campaign through a major brand awareness firm, Maheshwari has opted for a bottom-up whispering campaign through multiple local media. This will begin with viral poster campaign featuring a silhouette of his cart and the logo Not Just Any Old Bullocks.
Ive opted for English to appeal to the international market. You have to think big when it comes to establishing your identity and the joke doesnt really translate into Marathi. None of my customers can read either language anyway, he explained.
In a second phase, as soon as he can afford the down-payment on a can of paint, the cart will be painted royal blue and red, the colours of Mumbais IPL team, and will tour the centre of town offering rides to children bringing home cowpats for the evening fire. If this raises enough awareness, the empire may soon expand to a second cart.
Long-term, Maheshwari hopes to be able to afford to win celebrity endorsement from the transvestite singers at a wedding he saw over the road a few weeks ago. Sex sells, so Im told, he remarked. I wouldnt know, personally, things were never the same with my wife after my mother accidentally dropped that lead weight on her in the kitchen for not bringing enough dowry with her.

A local wanker has dropped the correct pronunciation of the name of the country of Laos into conversation like he expects to be awarded some kind of a frigging medal for it, report other participants in the interaction.
Apparently when I was saying how Id like to travel to Laos to do that thing where you ride an inflatable tire down the river, I pronounced it so that it rhymed with louse like some kind of dickhead, said Kirrawee carpenter Shane Docking.
A couple of minutes later when Trent was telling us how hed worked as a volunteer in Laos trying to save the Irrawaddy Dolphin, he pronounced it like it rhymed with how and then added an extra grunty vowel sound.
Id always thought it rhymed with chaos until old mate Trent chimed in and then stuck his chest out like we were supposed to pin a purple frigging heart on him or something, said Sylvania Waters electrician Josh Stapleton. As far as I know the military doesnt hand out brass for getting the diphthong right in speaking the name of a foreign country, so the prick can keep on dreaming.
The Laos incident follows on from a barbecue in 2015 where unemployed Wooloo...

If you want to be brutally murdered in the Saudi embassy in Paris, you may have to wait seven hours. In Berlin, those who wish to be quietly and tragically assassinated in the Saudi Embassy there may face overnight delays. In Rome, a small encampment of people waiting to be mysteriously dispatched has grown. It includes tents, makeshift showers and a food concession, for those who have been waiting three days or more for the service.
One veteran queuer in London said: Ive queued for a new Apple iPhone, Wimbledon and Barry Manilow concerts but this queue is ultimate. I cant wait to get inside the reputedly ostentatious embassy here in Kensington to see what all the fuss is about. Now the UN has stepped in to say the Saudis must speed up the progress of mysterious embassy slayings, warning that people in the lengthening lines might resort to killing each other in the streets of the world capitals, defeating the purpose of being there and causing street sanitation challenges in smart areas of world cities.
A spokesperson oh, all right, spokesman for the Kingdom apologised, saying the reservation system for consular beheading, shooting and poisoning was suffering teething problems, and those without reservations should stay at home until invited by text message to be slaughtered by hit squads flown in to carry out the homicides. One problem is dealing with the after-effects of the vicious killings, with clean-up teams and decorators working round the clock to restore embassies to their original oil-funded opulence before the next victim faces faceless swordsmen, firing squads or sinister figures brandishing syringes.
The Kingdom is at pains to point out that the crisis does not affect those attending embassies to secure visas for entry into the country, but warned vis applicants to take care to get into the correct line. President Trump announced yesterday he will be looking in to the murders to see whether lessons could be learned by the US Immigration Department. He applauded the Saudi diplomatic communitys efforts to increase efficiency, offering the country what he called a range of personal security hardware at attractively reduced rates to help deal with the problem and speed up the increasingly popular killings.
