Yesterday I was passed this: http://shouldireadthedailymail.com/
Then within the hour, this appeared online: http://toys.usvsth3m.com/are-you-hated-by-the-daily-mail/
Despite being married, with job, not looking Muslim or gay and having fully qualified UK parents I still returned an outcome of ‘hated by The Daily Mail’.
I hate being hated. In fact, I hate the idea of hate. It really rankles me.
I’ve never read The Daily Mail and as someone who generally tries to be nice to most people I meet I really can’t understand what it is they have against me. Unless it’s my stupid face?
So I’ve decided to see what all the fuss is about. To take a journey into mystery. I’m going to read The Daily Mail every day, from cover to cover, for the next year. What’s the worst that can happen?
I’ve even convinced some friends to come along for the ride. Mail Online is currently one of the UK’s most viewed websites and has a completely different target market to the Mail proper; polymath and internet pleasantry expert Meerkuts will be delivering the goodies from there on a weekly basis in MiniTrue – Culture you can swallow! Meanwhile DJ and word physician Kid Karconagenic will be casting his expert eye over the Mail’s sport output, the one place even I won’t go, with Sportsweak.
It’s like Super Size Me, but with a newspaper. But you can tell your friends it’s like Super Size Me on acid if you want, it sounds better. But only if you include the caveat that there will be no acid. It’s about a newspaper.
