back to article Independent dubs El Reg lesbian

We at El Reg have been called a fair few things in our time, but never before has it been suggested that we are dedicated practitioners of the Sapphic arts. Well, it was only a matter of time, and readers are invited to have a shufti at this piece from the Independent, which earlier today examined in some depth the Lesbian …

I wouldn't mind being branded a Lesbian . . . .

So what does it take to qualify as a Lesbian .....

Lusting after sexy ladies

Having facial hair

Having hairy legs perhaps........

Therefore by definition I must be a Lesbian

I am a 42 year old father of one, happily married so perhaps not ?

Paris . . . . cos she may well star in a nice girl on girl flick some time

Mine are the dungarees - off to the pub now for a pint !

Broadlysheet, what a pathetic load of pap - do they get paid for that rubbish.

Paris, could she could do better (at both the article writing and the Mytilenian stuff).

IndescribablyBoring..

looks to me like the paper that nobody reads is trying to up its circulation with sleazy stories at the expense of the Reg!

If it was the General BelGrauniad you would have been *lensbais*

If it was the Torygraph you'd have been fine because they don't know what lesbians are.

If it had been the Dirty Digger's Times, it would have read "Corrrrrrr! Online Mag El Reg Sucks Up to Lissome Lesbians in Shock Scandal!" (or something equally restrained)

Paris because I heard her on the radio this morning, nowt to do with my sexual fantasies, I just liked her song - a bit)

Sorry to say this: I think you might have weakened your case against the Indy. I suggest the patented disk-crusher recently mentioned deserves an outing...

Why PH? Because I'm sure she'd... no, better not.

It's the Indy though...

<rant>

As much as I "like" paper (in that it's the only one I can stand to read) I've noticed their hacks cannot cope with any science/technology of any sort, and will always get it wrong - even in their Sci/Tech/Business articles.

The SIndy had a four page spread on the dangers of t'internetting - that was almost as funny as some of the Reg's friday Pub-lishings.

Do you think they even bothered to open up the page, or just stole a quote from google?

</rant>

I for one would not have any problems with 'L' Reg branching out in order to appeal to a wider demographic.

(Hehe... did you notice the pun there... didya? didya?... Ahem...)

All publicity...

is good publicity. So they say.

It's just a shame the 'Phorm' story isn't getting the same coverage!

Of course, if it were to involve some 'girl-on-girl' action, as opposed to just another "big business screws joe public" scenario, then maybe they'd get interested.

Oh man...

We're going to be drowning in poontang now we're all lesbians!

I'll still keep buying the Indie though - it has 4 sudokus and a crossword! - and I'll keep coming here for real news.

@ Tawakalna:

If you honestly enjoy Paris' aural offering, might I suggest "Kingston Town" by UB40. It has essentially the same chord sequence and rhythm but without the attendant problems of making me want to stab someone in the eye.

Independant in talking shite shocker

Well, not a shocker really.

I read the Indy when I want to get angry about something. I could just read the Daily Mail/Express, but frankly I prefer to peruse something that has been written for someone who's mental age breaches double figures. Even if it's only just.

Anyway, I'm all up for more penetrating lesbain debate. How about a video interview with some leading lesbians. Preferably on tarpaulin. With an oil shower. And cucumbers.

Paris. Well, obviously.

@ Ideala2

The Indy wasn't too bad while Charles Arthur was there. Since then it's just awful for tech.

I always assume that the 10 best of anything for stuff I don't know about (say ladyhair removers or coffee tables) are going to be largely crap. This is based on the observation that if it is something I know something about, they're usually wrong. As well as the best budget pick often costing more than I'd spend on said object in the first place).

Sounds like we need a few articles on the latest Dutch advances in holding back the sea.

I hope my IT department doesn't read the Indy, otherwise we'll find that access to the site gets blocked as unsuitable.

But it is Wednesday, and there's an actual link to it on their 'site.

I'm almost speechless as to how terrifyingly amusing this is.

Just, haha, I can't think of it. How is it possible to respond to something that is described as credible without checking it out?

How can anyone fail to possibly spot that this 'site is definitely not a Gay 'site?

Journalism, there is none.

Present company excepted.

Satire label - Cringeworthy

This is clearly Lesbian retaliation for Lester Haines article 'Gay Americans favour hybrid electric vehicles' in which he insultingly refers to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community as GLBT instead of the correct LGBT. The lesbians always come first ! If in doubt, googlefight - LGBT 7,700,000 results, GLBT 5,590,000 results

Roger Alton is to newspaper owners what Paris Hitlon is to newspaper editors. He has whored out the Observer and worthy journalists like Richard Ingrams went to the Indy just to avoid him. If anyone writes to the Indy again please forward this previous related Register article -
