Animal Rights Activists Angry That There’s a Place Called Wool

The constant worriers at animal rights pressure group PETA have run out of things to be angry about, as they're currently resorting to being angry about the fact that there's a village in Dorset called Wool. And wool requires sheep to be held down and forcibly shaved by angry men in checked shirts, so it is a mild sort of animal cruelty.

Ocado Has Decided to Sell Mint-Choc-Chip Cheese, and That’s Not OK

Sprout tea, pork tea, sprout crisps, and so on are all pretty damn weird. But at least they could, in theory, be edible. We drink Bovril, so sausage and bacon flavour tea isn't that much different. Ocado have taken things to a new level, sadly, with mint-choc-chip flavour cheese. Read More >>

Great News Notch Lovers, the Pixel 3 XL Lets You Have Two

Nasty Christmas Products Continue With Sainbury’s New Pig and Sprout-Flavour Teas
