The news you need when you least expect it

The Mangalorean reports a mummy was captured at a home in Hampton Bays, New York. The mummy was watching television, apparently not even the accursed undead can resist the hypnotic inanities of the idiot box.

Increasing numbers of Americans deny the existence of Bigfoot. Imagine how this must make the Bigfoots feel. Why are Bigfoots the last minority group it’s acceptable to hate?

Jack Hylton foresees a hellish future for Whitby:
“[T]his is a sure way to make our town stink in the summer months and bring more rampaging rats breeding and the scavenging sky gulls that keep ourselves and our tourists awake. Breeding will be out of control when the rotting bags (not in dustbins) will be torn apart and are open invitation to encourage the many rats to breed more. To think they wish to let part of the tourist information centre off to a cafe franchise. When this emits horrible smells in the hot weather around this area, this will chase more of our tourists away."
Happy President’s Day.

  1. I'm curious about the Grand Turk of Whitby, which Hylton fears departing his town. Is this some kind of benevolent potentate or vizier, a spiritual leader of some sort, perhaps doubling as the town rat catcher?

  2. Mystery, magic, flying carpets, evil bureaucrats, fights with giant rats - find them all in Jack Hylton and The Grand Turk of Whitby - the first in a series some predict will be the next Harry Potter-like sensation in children's books.

  4. Isn't it great? A goldmine.

    I try to get most of my news from The Mangalorean, Whitby Today, and of course The Tide, though lately I've been avoiding The Tide because reading it gives me a headache.
