Re: The Daily Mash

Always a chuckle these sort of fake news items. Good for at laugh, and at least they are honest about it unlike the pretence of some of the better known nationals.

Great stuff guys.

@DaveyH 

We know the difference hence those inverted commas - but thanks so much for reminding us. I dread to think what we'd do without you. 

I'm being satirical by the way.
