How the zombie press and their semi-skimmed phone-in camp followers have tried to undermine Arsenal this season

By Tony Attwood

It’s been a bad season for the media – and the aaa, their hopeless allies on the phone ins and blogettas.  Arsenal are useless, Wenger is useless, we should have signed 20 more players, including that one who wanted to come from Real Madrid and didn’t actually score more goals that Giroud, and it’s all rubbish, and I’ve thrown my season ticket away.  That’s been the message throughout.

And yet, and yet,

1 No human rights City 11 8 1 2 26 9 17 25
2 Arsenal 11 8 1 2 21 8 13 25
3 We beat them 2-5 City 11 6 4 1 23 19 4 22
4 We beat them 3-0 United 11 6 3 2 15 8 7 21
5 State Aid Utd 11 6 2 3 22 15 7 20
6 The Tiny Totts 10 4 5 1 16 8 8 17
7 Liverpool are history 11 4 5 2 12 12 0 17
8 Crystal Palace 11 5 1 5 12 11 1 16
9 Watford 11 4 4 3 10 10 0 16
10 Southampton 10 3 5 2 16 13 3 14
11 West Bromwich Albion 11 4 2 5 10 14 -4 14
12 Everton 10 3 4 3 13 13 0 13
13 Swansea City 11 3 4 4 12 15 -3 13
14 Stoke City 11 3 4 4 9 12 -3 13
15 PGMO 11 3 2 6 16 22 -6 11
16 Norwich City 11 2 3 6 15 23 -8 9
17 Bournemouth 10 2 2 6 12 22 -10 8
18 Newcastle United 11 1 4 6 12 22 -10 7
19 Fat Sam & Co. 10 1 3 6 11 19 -8 6
20 An ex-Tot as manager 10 1 1 8 9 17 -8 4

That ain’t too bad in my opinion.  And just look how the season has panned out.

2 August 2015: Arsenal 1 Chelsea 0  (Community Shield)

The build up in the zombie presss was that Arsenal can’t beat Chelsea, and this was going to another Chelsea walk through.   The Express said afterwards in its headline, “Wenger beats Mourinho curse to lift Community  In the great scheme of things, a win in the Community Shield game at Wembley does not mean very much…”

So that told us then.

9 August 2015: Arsenal 0 WHU 2

After winning the Charity Shield the media were back to Arsenal needing to sign someone. The new goalkeeper was not all right after all, but outfield players were an absolute must.   So the Telegraph wrote, “The Gunners’ high-profile new goalkeeper was at fault twice.”

16 Augus 2015: Crystal Palace 1 Arsenal 2

Maybe a win away to Palace showed things were not so bad but there had to be negatives.  Palace were hardly a top team and besides, “Francis Coquelin escapes red as Damian Delaney own goal proves enough.”    An own goal and a lucky escape then.  Still useless.  But still time to buy a striker.

24 August 2015: Arsenal 0 Liverpool 0

This one was Liverpool all the way.  They had spent good money (Arsenal hadn’t) and were really going to make it this year.  “Liverpool maintained their unbeaten start to the Premier League season as they played out a thrilling goalless draw with Arsenal at Emirates.”  No thought of Liverpool ditching their manager then.

29 August 2015: Newcastle 0 Arsenal 1

The BBC’s report summed up the media’s view that Arsenal were still unconvincing.  “An own goal from defender Fabricio Coloccini gives Arsenal an unconvincing victory over 10-man Newcastle.”  We absolutely had to buy a centre forward – any centre forward would be better than what we have got, was the general view.  Wenger was a stubborn idiot who refuses to buy, was the sub heading.

12 September: Arsenal 2 Stoke 0

Arsenal won but it sure weren’t that good.  “Arsenal created numerous chances to double their lead, but sloppy finishing kept Stoke’s chances alive until Giroud made it 2-0 with five minutes to go,” according to

16 September 2015: Dinamo Zagreb 2 Arsenal 1

“OLIVIER GIROUD’S shocking September hit a new low last night in Croatia as Arsenal lost 2-1 to Dinamo Zagreb,” pronounced the Express.   Arsenal unconvincing, and the “only team in Europe not to buy outfield players” story was starting to take hold.  Untold got ready to publish its tables showing there is no link between expenditure on players and league position.   Overall, “This is what you get when you are the only club who won’t buy outfield players like everyone else,” was the theme.

19 September 2015: Chelsea 2 Arsenal 0

Chelsea on the march, Arsenal doomed, came the chorus.  This is the season we will finish mid-table pronounced more than one blogetta, just as it had last season.  “Arsène Wenger’s week goes from bad to worse as Gabriel Paulista and Santi Cazorla are sent off. … Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea restored order with a battling 20 win over nine-man Arsenal at Stamford Bridge. …”   Daily Telegraph.

We helped the petition reach over 100,000 to have the ref expunged from Arsenal games, and grudgingly the press admitted that maybe Gabriel should not have been sent off, but still this was going to be Chelsea’s season after all.

23 September 2015: Tottenham 1 Arsenal 2

A Tottenham win was predicted by all.  They were going to overtake Arsenal this season, because ARSENAL HAD FAILED TO BUY ANYONE.

“Mathieu Flamini double saves Calum Chambers’ blushes as Gunners win derby,” pronounced the Daily  Mirror

26 September 2015: Leicester 2 Arsenal 5.

A fair amount of silence regarding L’Affaires Arsenal followed this glorious fun win which will long be remembered by everyone who was there.  “Alexis Sanchez’s hat-trick saw Arsenal close the gap at the top of the Premier League after they came from behind at Leicester,” was just about the height of enthusiasm in the zombie press. That from the  Standard.

29 September 2015: Arsenal 2 Olympiakos 3

Wenger was at fault for picking Ospina, and the fact that Ospina was considered one of the top keepers in Europe showed just how stupid the Europeans are seemed to be the general opinion.  “David Ospina endures an evening to forget as Arsenal get into another fine mess in Europe,” said the Telegraph

4 October 2015: Arsenal 3 Man U 0

A supreme embarrassment for the zombies and their little followers in the blogettas.  “For precisely six months Alexis Sanchez has not been able to score at the Emirates and for the best part of five days Arsene Wenger has not been able to pick a football team,” was the Express’ best effort on this superb performance.  (I know its bizarre but it is on the internet so you can check I am not making this up.)

17 October 2015: Watford 0 Arsenal 3

Even the most rabid writer was struggling to knock Arsenal at this moment, although there were many references back to Champions League games.

“What a a (sic) glorious, peculiar evening of mixed messages from Arsenal, a team that seem to continually bounce between beautiful actions and moments of self sabotage. They will be quite an operation if they get that split personality under control.

“This was another of those days where, irrespective of the final numbers, Arsene Wenger’s side simply could not decide if they were fantastically gifted or plain daft.”  The Daily Mail

20 October 2015: Arsenal 2 Bayern Munich 0

Some of the zombies now decided to give up.   “SAY what you like about Arsene Wenger – and many have – but when he pulls a stroke like this one you wonder if it is going to be his season.”  Daily Express

24 October 2015: Arsenal 2 Everton 1

 And the bemusement and uncertainty was still there in the following game.  “Two goals in two first-half minutes from Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny keep good run intact,” was about the best the Telegraph could muster.

27 October 2015: Sheffield W 3 Arsenal 0

But this was more like it and the zombies marched on the Emirates.  “OF ALL the indignities heaped on Arsene Wenger’s head during his 19-year reign, this was one of the most humiliating.” The Express.

And the blogs went beserk too.  Wenger needed to buy better.  The training processes were awful.  It was Wenger’s fault.  Now we are sunk, because we don’t have any strikers.  Giroud is rubbish we should have bought, bought, bought all the way through the summer.  I told you this would happen…  We might as well give up because we are going to slide down the league because WE DON’T HAVE ANY STRIKERS

31 October 2015: Swansea City 0 Arsenal 3

“THE 2000th goal of Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal reign was scarcely one you would associate with the Frenchman’s purist beliefs.”  The Daily Star.
 I rest my case your honour.
It’s is a funny ol game, this pontificating lark.
The anniversaries
  • November 1912 (exact day unknown).  Henry Norris takes decision to move Arsenal to Highbury.
  • 1 November 2003: Leeds 1 Arsenal 4.  The 11th league match of the Unbeaten season.  Henry got two, Pires one and Gilberto Silva finished it off on 50 minutes.

    Sorry but there is no trophy given out in Oct/Nov. No trophy for 2nd place either. As Wenger says every season “judge him in May”. Lets see then if you and the other AKB’s are so full of it.

  • WalterBroeckx

    Compare this to the support we always have given the club, manager and players… We sure know the word support from left to right and from right to left…

  • Fred

    Change the record. You have become as boring and predictable as Le grove.

  • Sammy The Snake

    Can’t we all get along and enjoy the meltdown at Chelsea? 🙂

  • Mandy Dodd

    Many things are looking good. Giroud stats are starting to look very impressive. We are level with City, and even catching them on GD. Ozil…….stealing a living again yesterday, Bellerin…….just how did he get back to tackle Gomis when through? All of them really.
    My only fear is that there may be those with an agenda who will be only too aware of how well we are doing, and the next couple of league games are a chance to act accordingly…..of course no chance at all of getting Atkinson for either of those games, but that’s for another day.
    Just wonder what the ” it would never happen under Mourinho” boys are thinking now that their team are in effect five wins below the team managed by the man they hold in such contempt?
    But the lesson from yesterday, when all seems lost,….or at least that’s what we are being told, have some faith in JC.

  • Mandy Dodd

    As for phone ins, apparently, arch critic Adrian Durham has predicted us to win the title, but I suspect this is more in hope that he can make a whole weeks airtime slagging off Wenger if we do not.

  • Chris

    I was watching the dame via CanalSat here in Africa. French commentator David Ginola.

    Here are some of his comments 8approximately….)

    – Per Mertesacker is finally producing after a first few months at Arsenal that were difficult….when were they ?

    – Ozil is finally producing after coming back tired from the World Cup

    I won’t even mention the comments on Koczielny’ ‘aggression’ on Fabiansky which in Europe would have been punished.

    Stupid idiot, bunch of idiots. The worst part is we pay for that game coverage and to watch the games.
    And worse yet, he gets some ‘expert respect treatment.

    Keep up the good work.


  • What a strange comment Colesy. Who ever said there was a trophy in November?

  • Fred, I am sorry we are predictable. Best approach must be for you to read someone else’s blog. Or indeed start your own, and show us all how to make it very lively.

  • Rathod

    Sometimes out of adversity comes a good/great player, Bellerin, Coquelin and now Campbell? Obviously early days and one match, but I do like what he offers and in some of his previous games there was a player waiting to show what he could do, but didn’t get a run of games. Maybe he will now and keep progressing. The real positive apart from winning was another clean sheet, with some good fortune attached, but it augurs well for this season as we will always create chances and score goals. In my opinion it wasn’t a foul on Fabianski but nine times out of ten the ref protects keepers when nothing has happened. The rise of Bellerin is nothing more than remarkable, his two clearances were brilliant, showing fantastic pace and desire not to concede, what a talent. It goes to show that the starting eleven is strong and the extra days off for the majority makes all the difference. Ozil, again, ran the second half and creates chances for fun and Giroud has scored 65 goals in 150 games, not bad for a cart horse. Ya gunners, ya.

  • Tony – 99% of the 1,279 Members of Arsenal Manchester Supporters Club would totally agree with you. Incidentally AMSC is and always has been totally in full support of Arsene Wenger. We do our course fully respect other Gooners who have opposing views to ours but I’m only aware of maybe 3 or 4 of our Members who’s views differ from that of the overwhelming majority. So in the words of Jimmy Liddell let’s hope 2016 is O-F-Year 🙂

  • Genorm

    I know what I see and I know what I believe in. My team: my passion, their passion. The media just make me sick with the total junk they serve up.

    We need to be strong when the backlash of Riley tries to ruin our good run again.

    Let’s not forget that the scousers are now on a title-winning surge. Oh, and the chavskis just don’t seem to be functioning, since their star man, Mike Shit Dean, cannot play every game.

    Mandy, that is a good call for the spuds game … twatkinson.

  • gunnerpete

    Hi Mate…I think your site is better than most and not predictable at all. Just because you refused to join the Arsene bashers don’t make you wrong.
    The press is dominated by northern born journalists and whatever they say in public, they hate AFC in private because that’s what their dads did.
    Chelski, sadly have become a bigger joke than ever because Maureen tried to use the old trick of everyone is against us. I say, try playing season after season for 50 years with most of the media against you mate. try playing 6 consecutive seasons with the worst long term injury list of any club ever! Even this season we have 6 star players missing…not for 2/3 weeks but 6/9 months. I wonder how Chelski, Spuds, Man C, would do with that lost against them?
    As for our God Arsene. I have had many a row with so called Gunners about him, but since the first game they have been quiet, just like all bullies are when they come face to face with actual facts. its similar to watching working class people praising the Tories because they read and believe the press all owned by them.

    Keep up the great analysis of the matches are my ratings.

    Chech 8, Bellerin 8, FBG 6, Kossy 8, Monreal 7.
    Le Cock 8, Casorla 7, Ozil 8.5, Alexis 7, Giroud 8.5, Campbell 8.5. MOM Campbell.

    “Sorry but there is no trophy given out in Oct/Nov. No trophy for 2nd place either. As Wenger says every season “judge him in May” Lets see then if you and the other AKB’s are so full of it.”

    So full of what exactly?

    Joy maybe ?

    You really are sad.

    “Change the record. You have become as boring and predictable as Le grove.”

    So says the most boring broken record of all.

  • Andrew Crawshaw

    Change of topic, a sunny afternoon in Rotherham where the Ladies play the last game of their season against Notts County Ladies in the final of the Continental Tyres Cup. Kick-off is 15:00 and it is on BT Sport if you have access to that channel.

    This is the fifth year of this competition and Arsenal have been in the final every year only losing once, so the historical omens are good.

    Should be a good game as Notts are a decent team but, hopefully not as good as us this afternoon.


  • colesy

    Jambug- just saying this writer has seemingly got carried away with the 2nd place position the team is currently in. See how prominent it is in the piece. Like Michael Winner said” calm down dear….”. Wenger is past it and his stubbornness and lack of ideas will prevail with the team missing out on the league-again. Still perhaps we might get lucky in the FA cup again. You’re not going to embarrass yourself by suggesting that we weren’t lucky against Hull and played a very poor Villa in May are you?

  • finsbury

    Looking forwards to the pgMOB representative’s review for this match.

    Plundits very vocal on the handball claim against the BFG to be fair it’s the best they’ve got. I don’t know the rule but for myself, as a fan of Football, I’d be disappointed to see a handball call given against someone in a wall when their hand or arm was only about six inches in front of the face of another defender (Giroud’s face – the ball would’ve hit Giroud).

    I mean it was hardly like Vidic playing handball eh? A foul which got loads of coverage at the time, or maybe not… 🙂
    Same old same old from the broadcasters and petty plundits. Fortunately we just all follow the Arsenal. Save for the groaning self declared dysphoric Experts, fairly easy to spot these magnanimous souls in the comments above, I guess the traffic and clicks on Le not at all Xenophobic Groan must be down when the Arsenal are playing well.


  • finsbury

    “The zombie press and their semi-skimmed phone-in camp followers…”

    Brilliant title, very funny, thanks.
    You struck a nerve with some haha!

  • finsbury

    When you reflect upon te critiques of AFCs transfer policy, the praise for special agents and their wares the scorn for AFC exhibited, does it not read as if someone somewhere is a little bit upset that AFC have been spending hundreds of millions of pounds (sterling) less in the “market” when compared to the average hemorrhaging petro-club?

    Lord Sugar former owner of The Tinies:
    “Wenger knows the market”

    Yup. I can think of hundreds of millions of reasons why the club gets a bad press from the oligarchical presstitutes.

  • Colesy – sorry but this site is based on evidence. Your statement, “Wenger is past it and his stubbornness and lack of ideas will prevail with the team missing out on the league-again” has no evidence base. Please don’t do it again.

  • Tom

    “Colesy – sorry but this site is based on evidence”

    Billy The Dog

    Ask Tony about the Suarez transfer attempt by Arsene Wenger and you might find that your premise is questionable 🙂

  • jayramfootball

    Whilst I differ greatly with the OP on the assessment of Wenger, I cant disagree with the sentiment of this article.

    One of the most amazing things not being said by the media, but avoided, is the season Mesut Ozil is having. I think we can all remember the daily nose rubbing of arsenal fans last year when Fabregas started last year assisting and creating chances for fun. We heard endlessly how he was going to break the single season record (which he actually failed to do by 2 in the end). This year Ozil has 9 PL assists after playing just 10 games and is likewise on course to smash the single season record of 20 assists (held by Henry). But, not a word of it. Nowhere. In fact the policy seems to be to ignore everything Ozil as there is nothing bad to say. I wonder when and if the likes of Scholes, Carragher and Neville will admit how clueless they were about him?

  • Tom

    11 dislikes and not a single response denying my claim with facts, is not the way to reinforce ” this is a fact base site ” premise 🙂

  • Goéland

    When I see the way negative fans react here after good Arsenal wins, and when I read what the media have to say about the club, I´m starkly reminded of the quote that goes, “People will forgive you more easily for being wrong than for being right”. The special kind of scorn and derision reserved for Wenger and our team is a sad illustration of that maxim. It´s Arsène Wenger´s long-term wisdom in refusing to treat football like a short-burst circus that has him in the accused box constantly. Keep up the good work, Tony and Untold. Arsenal especially deserve fans whose loyalty is to facts and principles instead of fallacious and hyperbolic fads.

  • SamuelAkinsolaAdebosin

    zombie oh zombie, zombie oh zombie oh……, is a popular song sang by the late Nigerian music idol – Fela Anikulapo Kuti, in the late 70s or there are about. The song was directed against General Olusegun Obasanjo, the then Nigerian Military Head of State who was purported to have given a command to a group of uniformed soldiers to go and raid Fela’s music night club shrine in Lagos, “The Kalakuta Republic”. Fela’s mother who was leaving with him was alleged to have been thrown out of the window by the raiding soldiers when her corpse was discovered the following morning after the night raids according to reports. Ironically both Obasanjo and the popular Fela are from the same Abeokuta town – the Egba tribes in Western Nigeria. Maybe you’ve heard of Professor, Ransome Kuti before, he was the Health Minister during the General Ibrahim Babangida’s military regime. The prof’ is the eldest senior brother of Fela. And he got him out of jail when Gen Babangida came to power and appointed him Minister as Fela was jailed by the military regime of Gen Buhari/ GenIdiagbon era for contravening the foreign currency law, when £1000 was seen in his breast pocket at the airport as he arrived. He publicly told the arresting officers in front of the press that, it was the money he made from his music show in London. So, zombie press means: at the command to execute order whether good or bad. That was what is behind the late Fela’s zombie song. (Do this, yes Sir!) I am delighted for the Gunners’ win over the Swans yesterday. It is a confidence booster win ahead of their crucial match away to Bayern Munich on Wednesday night’s. More to follow on that from me. I hope I’ve not commented too long as someone had indicated to me last night.

  • Tom,

    As one of those who thumbed you down, I must let you know that lack of response to you isn’t because you have made an irrefutable claim. It is because most here already figured you out. No one wants to waste their time arguing with you as you insist, tenaciously, that 6 is bigger than half a dozen.

    The beauty of the thumbing system is that it saves us from responding to every comment we agree or disagree with. The point of this response to you is to stop you from gloating. I have no intention of engaging you in any kind of debate.


  • Tom

    Thanks for your response my friend. I knew I could count on you.

    I’m not gloating btw. Just having a bit of fun on a Sunday morning watching football.

    Tony’s article was clearly intended as banter, hence his league tables. So forgive me for not being able to resist a little dig at BIlly The Dog’s comment
    about this site being all about the facts.

    Clearly it’s not. When a sole proprietor of this site chooses to deny a clear fact , which had been confirmed repeatedly from the only source that matters( Arsena Wenger), based only on an idea who a club like Arsenal should or shouldn’t buy, then you can not claim this site is fact based ,but rather opinion based.

    According to Tony, Arsene Wenger couldn’t have possibly wanted to sign a biting, diving racist, because that would contradict everything about what the man himself stands for.

    So please do tell , which part of this is a six and which a half a dozen:)

  • Gunnerjoe

    Got to love an Arsenal fan who hurts when Arsenal win games and are joint top of the pl.
    And when we do win a trophy its lucky Colesy are you sure your not a spurs fan.

  • Dazza64

    Looks like some folks – Fred, Colesy- have such a high expectation of Arsenal that when we win but do not play a perfect 90 minutes it’s a load of crap, Wenger is stubborn and we will not win a league blah blah….
    Life must be one big disappointment, as per Gunnerjoe you must be Spuds in disguise!

  • sleekwhale

    Looks like you like telling stories, which is not so bad a thing, Samuel Adebosin. Now back to Arsenal and the Zombie Press, we seem to be working in tandem-I suppose. No hate, just takes the focus from us so we can continue to ride on the wings of so-called luck. I don’t dislike luck, but we also need luck on our side to win the league but we don’t play like we’re dependent on luck, we create many more chances than mother luck can provide for her suckling. I think we are also lucky to have AW.

  • hrishi

    Not to mention the claim that Suarez bit Chielini to force a move to Barca!

    I like this site for a lot of reasons, not the least of which was their support of Arsene Wenger during the trophy-less years. They were one of the few blogs who understood the situation the club was in, at the time. That does not mean I have to agree with everything. A lot on UA is different from the normal football blog but the again, a lot isn’t. Gunnerpete mentioned how Mourinho uses the “us against the rest” weapon. I don’t find that too uncommon here as well- what with the referees and the media being who they are, supposedly.

    Just because Tony picked out convenient phrases from each post match article does not mean the media is biased against Arsenal. And I am sure Tony knows that too. All he is doing is having a little dig at the media for their predictability.

    But for some this is clear evidence of an anti-Arsenal agenda in the media. “Evidence” is a commonly abused word. Many people would show you “evidence” of America deceiving the world that they went to the moon. Everything is open to interpretation. As someone once said, if you look hard enough, you can find insults in even the most innocuous of statements. And in that spirit, I recommend the following link to those who are easily offended:

    You probably have seen or received this before , but just read it again..

    Would You marry Again? – Priceless

    A husband and wife are sitting quietly in bed reading when the Wife looks over at him and asks the question….

    WIFE: “What would you do if I died? Would you get married Again?”

    HUSBAND:”Definitely not!”

    WIFE: “Why not? Don’t you like being married?”

    HUSBAND: “Of course I do..”

    WIFE: “Then why wouldn’t you remarry? ”

    HUSBAND: “Okay, okay, I’d get married again.”

    WIFE: “You would?” (with a hurt look)

    HUSBAND: (makes audible groan)

    WIFE: “Would you live in our house?”

    HUSBAND: “Sure, it’s a great house.”

    WIFE: “Would you sleep with her in our bed?”

    HUSBAND: “Where else would we sleep?”

    WIFE: “Would you let her drive my car?”

    HUSBAND: “Probably, it is almost new.”

    WIFE: “Would you replace my pictures with hers?”

    HUSBAND: “That would seem like the proper thing to do.”

    WIFE: “Would you give her my jewelry?”

    HUSBAND: “No, I’m sure she’d want her own.”

    WIFE: “Would you take her golfing with you?

    HUSBAND: “Yes, those are always good times.”

    WIFE: “Would she use my clubs?

    HUSBAND: “No, she’s left-handed.”

    WIFE: — silence —

    HUSBAND: ” Oh crap !”

    Now just change the characters and visualise if this converastion is between The Moaning One and Roman The Russkie talking about replacements – instead of wife think Claudio Ranieri , Carlo Ancelotti and instead of golf clubs think virtue and decency .

    Why not post ‘your’ conversation ?

    Then again I do wish that this happens to someone that I’m not too fond of and may even soon get some more millions to…..well, just to fuck off !


    There was a man, who had worked all his life, had saved all of his money, and was a real miser when it came to his money.

    Just before he died, he said to his wife, “When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to the afterlife with me.”

    And so he got his wife to promise him, with all of her heart, that when he died, she would put all of the money into the casket with him.

    Well, he died.

    He was stretched out in the casket, his wife was sitting there – dressed in black, and her friend was sitting next to her. When they finished the ceremony, and just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said,

    “Wait just a moment!”

    She had a small metal box with her; she came over with the box and put it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket down and they rolled it away.

    So her friend said, “Girl, I know you were not foolish enough to put all that money in there with your husband.”

    The loyal wife replied, “Listen, I am a Christian; I cannot go back on my word. I promised him that I was going to put that money into the casket with him.”

    “You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket with him!?!?!?”

    “I sure did,” said the wife. “I got it all together, put it into my account, and wrote him a Cheque…. If he can cash it, then he can spend it.”

    ( Are there banks in hell ? Ponder on that if you will .)

    Do the people who hijack these great articles with pointless comments do so because they think they are clever?

    There is not much wonder the media laughs at us is there!
