Sidebar article: "Exciting new Brazilian pussy fingered by overjoyed boffins"

So: a science article ... written by inarticulate chavs. I have a suggestion. Stick to writing about "blowjob-giving apes".

Duh, what possessive mean? Me go watch Honey Boo-Boo now.

"Vintage WINE laid down in SIXTEEN HUNDRED BC was 'psychotropic'.
Possibly accounting for concurrent technicolour dreamcoat fad."
Did the Registar just out-fark Fark?

Of course they do. Decent people don't think about what transpires beneath an event horizon too much.

I set Google News to stop giving me Register stories for exactly that reason.
