I'm hoping someone's going to come in and say this is a joke... but it looks like it's genuine?
I'm flabbergasted and outraged and aghast and loads of other adjectives!

I've heard of corkage and totally fine, whatever... but norkage???? Definitely not ok .

Southend news network is a spoof site.

Is it really?

Spoof site. It's a joke.

Spudlet Wed 22-Mar-17 09:37:36

Yes.

Another recent story was 'Horror as passenger jet narrowly misses the moon'.

They even admit they are a joke site on their "about snn" page - southendnewsnetwork.com/about-snn/

Oh ffs.
Bloody hell! Totally fell for that one!
What a waste of righteous indignation!

If you read the article there are a few clues, kids 'eat until you bleed' all you can eat offer and the suggestion that there are lots of spaces in the outside smoking area for breastfeeding mums. wink

Looking at their other articles it's a joke - but wouldn't have surprised me if it was real!

Call it a warm up for the next time Trump does something outrageous!
