Just in: Lies from the bogot’s favourite fish wrapper

The bogot loves Murdoch newspapers and derives much of its delusions knowledge from them (alongside its other education provider the shock jocks ) but it has a particular fondness for the Herald-Sun and its clone stablemates.

The lurid headlines are a particular attraction, full as they are of the bogot’s favourite buzz-words like “refugees”, “asylum seekers” (or the portmanteau “boat-people”), “Aborigines”, “immigrants” (often preceded by the word “illegal” almost always in the wrong context) and “Muslim” or “Islamic” (interchangeable despite having different meanings) juxtaposed cleverly with “rip-off” and “rort” and “terrorist” and accompanied by short and usually inaccurate pieces with a readability level of about nine years of age.

So today’s headliner was no surprise. We hope the retailer who owns that image is aware that in true Hun fashion, one of their promotional pics has been ripped off , so eager were the Seekers after Troof to get the story out to the bogot masses.
