Satire is only as good as the subject makes possible.
If NB is not as good as it was, it's the fault of the Real World, not the fault of NB.
I demand that the politicians, celebrities and the general population of the Real World resume doing daft and/or pompous things so that we have something worthwhile to take the piss out of.
Come on, people of the Real World, start acting like twats again, and give us some inspiration. Stop evading satire by being all sensible. We know our rights.
(By the way, are you sure you don't want any replica designer handbags? Not even French ones?)
