Who gives a fark? How does this get greenlit? Couples fight all the farking time. Get over it and move the fark on, people.

"Lesbian bridges the gap"

I love The Sun

CrackedEgg: *glad I'm not spending $5 a month*

That's the point, dolt. You don't pay, and you get headlines like that, with posters of your quality

We pay, we get all the headlines and much better replies.

How does this get greenlit? Couples fight all the farking time.

With banners hung from overpasses?

Sounds fishy to me.

Snarfle: With banners hung from overpasses?

Frankly, if you've never seen british lesbians having a tiff and disputing it with huge banners hung from overpasses, you must live in Kansas.

Couple who was arguing...

that was... who were...

"Who was" sounds wrong. Maybe its just me. Maybe its the fact that "couple" can be taken as singular or plural. Maybe its just been too long since I've been in any kind of grammatical class.

Smells fishy, in this case..

Lesbians bridge the gap. How appropriate in so many ways.

Real Lesbians are the ones willing to marry each other and are very ugly/manly for their reasoning to be a Lesbian

Just keep telling yourself that when we c*ckblock and/or deny you.

My ex-girlfriend is a lesbian in Brighton. Don't think it's her though.

/I tell myself she went lesbian because after being with me no other man could live up to her expectations
//I know i'm lying to myself

Lesbians, This story has finally become newsworthy and now nobody wants to talk about it.

Well, I'll be damned. Whooda thunk they're, you know, people--with real problems, the kind that real people have.

Wonders just never cease.

2005-10-25 12:01:11 PM
regardless of sexual orientation normal people do not solve their "marital" problems in this manner.

They are probably white trash lesbians.

There is a good band name for you.

smeegle: we even put our trousers on the same way and endeaver to wear a skirt now and then.

Gosh, then we really are all the same--'cept you don't have to worry about dressing left or right.

Rocko67 nobody wants to talk about it.

We're all two threads up in the female masturbation thread.

I'm I the only person who's not wrapped up in the fact that they're lesbians, and more concerned with the fact that the Sun wrote 'The bust-up began with a banner reading "Wendy, I want a divorce. JSB."' despite the fact that it says 'WENDY I WANT A DIVORCE JBS'.

Does it not bother the mortal piss out of anybody else that -- okay, I know this is the Sun here, and it's the standard-bearer for the Army of Murdoch's Crap, led by General Fox News, but still -- can't a) capitalize a written quote as it appears b) can't retain editorial punctuation (has anybody at the Sun ever used the editor's notation of sic?) and c) can't even arrange the initials properly, all in one quote?

Yeah, I tend to get pissed off at little things.
 
2005-10-25 02:49:43 PM
Cardinal: dressing left or right.

Ha ha ha that got a belly laugh from me.

Is there a choice in the matter, right, left or parked up front for a hot data?
 
2005-10-25 02:55:07 PM
Mojo,

I suspect that the Sun style guide would say that when you are quoting text in caps, turn it into mixed case for readability; they are not bound to copy the typographical conventions of the original and they didn't print it in green either.

Can you imagine how confused the average Sun reader would be if a parenthetical sic was added in that context? The comma was added to aid comprehension and seems reasonable enough.

The initials are obviously a screw-up though.

Now I'll go back to eating my chicken sangwich.

"A COUPLE who rowed by draping banners over a bypass bridge have announced they are back together - as LESBIAN lovers."

Does anyone else think it's retarded that "lesbian" is the only word that's both bolded and capitalized in that article?
 
2005-10-25 04:52:41 PM
I don't care that they're lesbians. I care that these two sick people thought their petty personal disputes and squabbles were important enough to share with the rest of the world.

Why on EARTH should we care? Are they so egotistical that they think everyone would give a damn about this? Are these women at the center of the freaking universe?
 
2005-10-25 05:25:32 PM
I suspect that the "We're back together" thing is a hoax done by someone else who had seen the original signs. The first signs look like they were painted on sheets - the last one was on paper.

I think someone just pulled a prank.
 
2005-10-25 06:50:23 PM
It's actually a complete hoax being put on by some new edgy entertainment company. Every week, there will be a new crudely painted sheet hanging out there, and the story will get ever more convoluted, lascivious, and possibly macabre. Pretty soon though, the sheet will always be hanging next to a budweiser billboard.

"Changing her mind is a woman's prerogative"

Nice way of calling them FLAKES.

Akom:

Yes, it's just you. It doesn't matter how many are in the group, the group is a singular organism.

Couple is singular, couples is plural.

hard h2o:
They are probably white trash lesbians.

I always thought "white trash" was a uniquely American term...what would "white trash" be in England, or in the mainland of Europe?

TTIWWWT?
(This thread is worthless without white trash?"
