Tabloid Journalism

An intriguing headline showed up on CricInfo this morning. "India captain slams 'foul-mouthed' England" it says, with a sub-heading of "Claims England skipper was 'scared'"

I have no doubt that countless readers were stunned to think that Rahul Dravid had spoken out against Andrew Flintoff (or is that Andrew Strauss, or Michael Vaughan, or....).

Imagine their surprise then, when after clicking through with fervent anticipation, adrenaline coarsing through their veins, they discovered that the story in fact was nothing more than a tame claim of sledging made by the Indian Women's Cricket Captain, Mithali Raj.

The Sun, The Daily Mirror, and papers of that ilk would have been proud of such chicanery. I truly wonder how many extra impressions, and therefore advertising dollars, CI was able to rustle up.

Not impressive at all.

Shakespeare cockroach is a new racial insult against the dirty english people.

England is called, Cockroach England.

Shakespeare cockroaches are also beaten up which is called, COCKROACH BASHING. Those who beat up the Shakespeare cockroaches, are called, Cockroach bashing.

It is now known in many countries that the Cockroch women (englishwomen) use dogs for sexual intercourse, sucking & cunt licking, which is called, DIANA SEX.

This undermentioned "Cockroach joke" (english joke) is very famous everywhere :


What is the difference between a Diana dog, Thatcher dog and a Shakespeare dog ?

If the dog is sexually good, it is called, Diana dog.

If the dog becomes sexually impotent, it is called, Thatcher dog.

If the dog is still undergoing sexual training and is learning how to have sex with a Cockroach woman (englishwoman) then this "trainee dog" is called, Shakespeare dog.



( Our gang members call themselves THE COCKROACH BASHERS, because we give Cockroach bashing to the Shakespeare cockroaches )
