British newspapers have reacted in outrage to an episode of South Park, where in an homage to 24, the British Queen is behind a plot to take over the United States government. The plot fails, and she blows her head off with a gun.
The Sun called it the show’s “sickest point yet”. The Daily Mail said it was “its most spectacularly offensive episode yet”.
Chris Doidge said it was “the funniest thing he’d heard in a long, long time”. A spokesman for Chris Doidge added he was still laughing now, even though he should be writing his law coursework.

Cardiff is probably one of the best-regarded places to study journalism in the UK. Even Johnny Foreigner comes over to study here. We call him McFad. Yet the evidence below suggests this reputation may not be entirely deserved…

A 2p TAX CUT!!! And the scrapping of the lower rate of income tax to cancel it out.
A BETTER DEAL FOR BUSINESSES!!! And an increase in corporation tax for small businesses.
AN INCREASE IN CHILD TAX CREDITS!!! And a change in the threshold so that you’ll get less.
A TAX CUTTING BUDGET!!! And firm promises that taxes will actually go up in future years.
CASH BORROWING IS DOWN!!! Except for last year, but I won’t mention that.
THE LOWEST INCOME TAX RATES IN DECADES!!! And the highest stealth taxes ever, to make up for it.
A BUDGET THAT LOOKS TO THE FUTURE!!! Ah… yes, he got that bit right. Half of the measures he introduced won’t actually start until next April. Howzat for the next Chancellor, eh?

What is it about people – it seems to be mostly men – when they get behind the wheel of a white van?
It seems only to occur when it’s a van and when it’s white. Yet there seems to be no logical reason for this phenomenon. They bear down on cars in front, they flash their lights at people, they never do any favours to other vehicles, and they generally hog the fast lane on the motorway.
It doesn’t seem to matter whether they are a white van man or just someone who’s hired the van. They’re still evil…
So how about some punitive measures? We could do something obvious, like tax them, or we could just launch a campaign to write nasty things about them in the dirty exterior of their bastard wagon. Here’s some suggestions:
Drive Carefully! Paedophile on Board!
WIDE LOAD (and that’s just the driver)
I read the Daily Mail
I’m a Racist, Sexist, Homophobe

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/5161446.stm
Poland's President Lech Kaczynski has a new Prime Minister today.
His twin brother, Jaroslaw.
Can you imagine it happening anywhere else? Imagine if the Speaker of the House in the U.S. was Jeb Bush, or if Cherie Blair was the Chancellor?
And they're TWINS! Identical ones! The puns have unlimited potential!
Only in Poland, I guess. Truly bizarre.
Paparazzi photographs suggest that Joe Cole has decided to leave Chelsea – in fact football – behind for a new career. He's set to take on the Abramoviches of the world and give the Russian's money to poor people up and down the land. Here is the evidence:
Actually, it's not Joe Cole, it's Jonas Armstrong who's playing Robin Hood in a new BBC adaptation that's supposed to be very good (i.e. it's expensive and if it's not good, heads will roll).
But I prefer the idea that it's Joe Cole.
