Timmy elsewhere

One of the little joys of writing for El Reg is the constant straining at the envelope. Will the subs let me get away with this phrase?

A few weeks back it was “the best thing since your inlaws discovered dogging” that made it through. Today it’s:

I often wonder why it is that people bother publishing “research” papers that are obviously incorrect. Is it that they’re getting paid to spout bollocks? Or, is there some thought that we’re all too stupid to realise that they’re teabagging great big hairy ones at us?

It’s not perfect, I agree, but there’s a joy at being able to get something like that into print.
