A bit of free publicity?

Post by Ali Baba » Sat Dec 01, 2018 8:59 am

Those of you who watch the satirical news show on BBC1 Have I Got News for You? will know that the missing words round at the end of the show features a guest publication for general ridicule, for some obscure magazine with an improbable title such as Margarine Weekly or The Spoon Benders Gazette.
This week it was the turn of....Cactus World :eek:
I guess there is no such thing as bad publicity, or are we all now officially a bunch of weirdos?

None of the usual ridicule, maybe something in the extended version?

I agree, Alan, but (sadly) in my role as a moderator I feel duty bound to check it out sometimes! :wink:
