Thought for the day – Inside Cover is Crappest ever.

In passing, can I just ask, how has the The West’s Inside Cover, (long a poor man’s The Worst of Perth), become even crappier? Not only do they now have a snoreworthy “On this day” section, but the exquisite banality of a”Thought of The Day” too!”Scots under King James routed? “Modesty is the only bait when you angle for praise.”? Wot fuck? The rest of IC is taken up by poor spelling of accommodation and a hilarious Alston in the “Me no rikey” genre. Guys, this is shitty. Shitty from arsehole to breakfast. Shitty as a baby’s bum. Shittier than the ace of spades. Shittier than two skeletons copulating on a corrugated iron roof. Malcolm Quekket appears to be The Bard, or perhaps the new Winton of shitty. Who would have thought that the action of bringing back Rob Broadfield would be an improvement here?Inside Cover is Shitty Unbelievable. And shitty.

  1. Thought for the day: A man never stoops so low as something something a child.
    On this day: On this day in 1986, Paul Murray first used the term, “At first blush.”

    The Fourth Earl of Chesterfield? Didn’t he also write Shakespeare?

    Dean Alston must be teh worst cartoonist in Australia – he is Teh Worst personified. I think the reason they don’t sack him, Mooner, Kovacks and the rest of them is that it wouldn’t really make much difference. The only reason to publish Teh Worst is to have something to put the Retravision and Harvey Norman inserts into.

    That other WA snoozer Eoin Cameron also loves dipping into the almanac – as a substitute for thought. He can be excused though – he has been producing the same program for 30 years and clearly doesn’t give a shit. Neither do his listeners.

    The internet-sourced filler starts at page 2!? They’re not even fucking trying any more.


  6. It gets worse. It looks as though IC is now ripping-off this website:

      Apparently the best things about Perth are these Melbourne-five-years-ago hipster-cutesy purveyors of over-designed bollocks for brain-dead Frankie “readers.” What an absolute load of fuckin’ bollocks. The so-called designers responsible for this kind of wank (above website included) should be lined up and shot.

    I happened to read IC yesterday at the doctor’s. How fucken not funny is Malcolm Quekett? Seriously, who thought he’d be the one for IC?

    The funniest part of the whole page was that someone had spelled Cottesloe as ‘Cottisloe’ on the Subway website. Fuck me.
