Flattery and (half)wit

Friday, December 15, 2006 | 4 comments »

Berlaymonster, over a pint, picks up a copy of "Up Yours", Brussels' laziest listings magazine. Somewhere towards the back, there's a page with the subtitle "Berlaymonster Blues."

And even better, two of the articles look pretty familiar. There's one about stuffed goods, seen here first, and another one with a picture of this.

Does the 'Monster get a mention? Not even a little one?

If anybody read the magazine we might even mind.

Berlaymonster ... enabling boozy hacks to fill their column inches ...

    ... and enabling you to fill up yours as well, by the way, with flattery and half wit.

    Dear Belyamonster reader,

    Apologies, explanations and an offer of recompense have duly been made (and accepted) in private.

    It's gonna cost me a beer though.

    And Eliab is a dead man...

    Why dead?

    Did I not, and I think it is checkable, always flag up your noticing of the fine fluffy ornament as a Berlyamonster discovery?

    Call of the dogs Mr Tippler...

    Did you?

    Then mea maxima culpa. Can't find the original, so I'll have to take your word for it.

    Yah, boo, sucks!
