I can't stand all the excitement about how good looking she is and how nice her backside is. She looks like Kate Middleton chewing a wasp. She's so waifer-thin that she doesn't even have a rear, she just appeared to have one at a particular moment when she bent down and a camera was at the right angle. It was just an optical illusion.

Exactly! She looked nice at a wedding. Well whoop-de-fooking-do! She's posh and there's an extreme publicity push to keep her in the public eye, what for I'm not quite sure.

that is all.
This is very true. However, as much as I dislike it, it still does exist and people do read it.

Their website makes me laugh - they'll have an article about "Too much nakedness in the media", and yet their website is FULL of A/B/C and Z-list celebrities on the beach, in miniskirts, or even just completely starkers.

Yes, I realise it's pointless to moan about the daily mail.

At the moment it's people* who can see you are stressed out but make no effort at all to ease that, and instead say, ooh by the way could you also do this for me? GRR.

*people who you cant really tell to f+++ off.

I thought about italicising the arse but in the end I had enough faith in my audience.

People who pay to get into Wimbledon, only to sit on that hill all day and watch tennis on the big screen.

Actually, just Wimbledon full stop; my one and only trip there was without doubt one of the worst days of my life.

Well the hill is inside the complex, next to centre court, and you have to pay to get into the complex (a sort of basic 'peasant's pass').

So, in summary; people queue for two-three hours, pay £20 to get into the complex, pay £10 for a bag of Maltesers and a small bottle of water....and then go and sit on a hill to watch tennis on a big TV. The mind boggles.

At least you'd expect them to go to Ascot and beat the censored out of each other. It's all the craze in the world of posh people.

Misleading headings in newspapers/websites.

When I click on a link I expect the title to relate to the article, not be something almost completely different.
