I’ve been looking for a good news website for a while. There’s some that I glance at from time to time, but none of them have really stuck. Except one. I really should be embarrassed to admit this, but I love the British Tabloid The Daily Mail.
Today, I learned of the woman who had sex with her underage nephew at Thanksgiving, The French government hating on the name Daemon for being too supernatural, and the real house based on the one in the Disney Movie Up!
But yesterday, they had an article so stupid that it seemed like 13 year teen boys had developed the concept.
Victoria’s Secret Models Fatboothed (read it here)
For those of you who still haven’t figured out what Fatbooth is, it is an application where you can make someone look really fat. It’s funny and you can do it on your friends. It’s taken a while for me to perfect “my FatBooth face”: a slightly agape mouth, an awkward smile and wide, clueless eyes. It looks horrendous every time (and no I won’t be posting it).
Here’s one more and you can see the rest of the pictures in the article.
I found out today that the Daily Mail was Britain’s first daily newspaper aimed at the newly literate “lower-middle class market resulting from mass education combining a low retail price with plenty of competitions, prizes and promotional gimmicks”, and the first British paper to sell a million copies a day. At least they knew their market.
Tomorrow: I fatbooth puppies and ask for a journalism prize.
