Haven't visited the Fail to read the story, or the thread it is no doubt based on; but I would imagine the reason would be that they are lazy fuckers who wouldn't know journalism if it bit them?

because they are lazy wankers

well why not they lift everything else from on here

Women do stuff to pubic hair shocker

Bless them.

Why on earth did they go with that thread? confused
Seriously, I would've put money on them printing the zoo story if anything.

Errrr really this qualifies as news or public interest er how

Lilmisskittykat Wed 03-Aug-16 15:16:32

I read this this morning... Just thought... Old news already!

Obviously a slow news day

LizzieMacQueen Wed 03-Aug-16 15:17:06

So glad I didn't post on that one - far far too much detail going on.

HoneyDragon Wed 03-Aug-16 15:20:56

Ach they quoted me, not for the first time, and probably not the last....that demonstrates to me they aren't interested in classy repartee and informed opinion grin

Vipermisnomer Wed 03-Aug-16 15:29:18

In their office it goes "need more clicks, need nasty sounding click bait title - what website can we steal clicks from, oh I know MN is popular..."

Wasn't there a techy solution a while back to bring up pictures of kittens or something instead of dailyfail links? Can someone tell me how to do that please?

SoupDragon Wed 03-Aug-16 15:30:15

That is the most hilariously lazy piece of shit "journalism" I've ever seen. Whoever put their name to it should be embarrassed by themselves. I can only assume they've used a pen name it's so crap. It's literally a cut and paste job!

LoreleiGilmoreIsMyBFF Wed 03-Aug-16 15:36:15

Did 'Zoogate' not make it in?

ThumbWitchesAbroad Wed 03-Aug-16 15:37:22

"Women do stuff to pubic hair shocker"

No no, Honey - you missed the nuance of the fact that it is MOTHERS who do stuff to pubic hair. Because obviously once we've sprogged, we've no further need to titivate the area, or any other bodily hair - we're Done.

puzzledbyadream Wed 03-Aug-16 15:38:18

Oh bloody hell as if I've been quoted discussing my pubes in the daily mail!!!!!

LoreleiGilmoreIsMyBFF Wed 03-Aug-16 15:39:34

Thumb hence the term 'MILF'. Because it's a rare woman who possibly be sexually attractive after having a child!

HoneyDragon Wed 03-Aug-16 15:40:59

Mothers tend pubic hair or don't tend pubic depending on personal preference even though actual babies came out of them....SHOCKER

Better? wink

Budgiebonbon Wed 03-Aug-16 15:41:57

Thoughtless, lazy & uncreative, I would be utterly embarrassed to have my name to that article. Cut & Paste MN click bait.

Part of me wonders if they don't start some of the threads themselves to see what the responses are.

LoreleiGilmoreIsMyBFF Wed 03-Aug-16 15:43:24

I might have actually bought stolen a copy of the Fail if they'd done ZooGate....

ThumbWitchesAbroad Wed 03-Aug-16 15:43:36

grin at Honey - oh yes, less snappy but better! :P

Lorelei - you know, I'd never thought of it like that - I thought it was a term that teen boys used about their friends' mothers! But your version works too

Xenophile Wed 03-Aug-16 15:45:13

Because the thread was pretty obviously started by a Fail journo?

Because they are fucking arseholes. And on that, they can quote me

HerOtherHalf Wed 03-Aug-16 15:51:52

Because it's a comic, not a newspaper.

SmallBee Wed 03-Aug-16 15:52:19

Because all the real journalists work elsewhere and they're left with the dregs, who by now have become so disillusioned with their career and lives that they no longer have the required motivation to do anything other than the barrel scraping bare minimum required to earn a wage.

Or they are just being lazy shits.

ThumbWitchesAbroad Wed 03-Aug-16 15:56:57

No no, HerOtherHalf - not a comic. They're meant to be funny - nowt funny about the Daily Heil, except that they call themselves a "newspaper" and their employees "journalists" - that IS pretty amusing. grin

Haha have you seen the comment from someone saying we should get off our arses and get a job grin as if we all sit on our lonesome and debate such things while the rest of the world works.
