Oh For F*ck’s Sake…

You know, as time has gone by, I’ve grown to actually hate the press more and more.

For the past two days, one bit of news has been grabbing the headlines. Can you guess what it is? Hmmm, let’s see:

Is it the fact that North Koreans are blithely exploding nuclear weapons left right and centre, even though they know they aren’t supposed to?

Is it that everyday we have soldiers in Afghanistan dying, and nobody seems to give a shit?

Is it that everyday thousands of children are starving to death in the poverty stricken corners of our world?

Is that everyday, children are suffering sexual and physical abuse at the hands of their relatives?

Nope, nope, nope.

The biggest news for the past few days has been the fact that Madonna adopted a baby.

What the fuck?

Do I really give a flying arsehole if she’s only doing this for attention? Do I really give a shit that she’s used her fame and fortune to speed up the process? Do I give a shit about the fact that she’s white, and the child isn’t?


And quite frankly, in a fucked up world like ours, what she did was a good thing. Let’s face it, the kid would have probably died of AIDS by the time he got to his teens anyway, if he’d stayed in Malawi.

The BBC have a forum up, asking who should adopt African Orphans. My answer? Anybody who gives a shit, and can afford to look after them.

Catherine, from Malibu, disagreed, she wrote:

Catherine from Malibu, do you know what you are? You are a fucking moron, who deserves to have her head shaved bald.

So let me repeat, I don’t give a toss that Madonna adopted a child, I really don’t. There are far worse things happening in the world, than giving a parentless baby, a real future.

The press and media are getting as bad as those fucked up human rights, tree- hugging, yoghurt knitting, vegans, who condescend to tell us how the fuck we should lead our lives.

They all need shooting.

Rant over.
