The News Quiz

BLOG HEALTH WARNING: This blog post contains satire aimed at the old fashioned "I wish to complain in the strongest possible terms" style complaint letter regarding an unimportant issue typically sent by people with nothing better to do.  I like the News Quiz a lot and will be listening tonight at 6.30pm to see if they've mentioned my letter :)

I was so incensed the other day that I was forced to fire off an email to "The News Quiz", a popular BBC Radio 4 show.  See the email sent below.

Dear Sir,

This morning I was listening to the latest episode of "The News Quiz" on my mobile phone via the BBC iPlayer "app" whilst putting away laundry and whitening my teeth.  I was somewhat distressed to discover that in certain parts, particularly the section about "Doctor Big Boy" that I nearly leaked whitening fluid all over my clean washing.  This was particularly awkward as I was putting away coloureds.

Please advise people in similar situations so that they are aware of this danger in future.

I await their response.

(While I'm blogging - this is my 399th blog post. I haven't actually planned much for my 400th beyond saying "wow - this is my 400th post" but I'm looking forward to getting it under my belt!)


  1. You should post a blank page and then do a 401st post and make up some story about how Egyptians were terrified of the number 400 or something lol

  2. I can't stop thanking Lord Zakuza for helping me bring back my girlfriend that left me for another man at her workplace.. I was shocked when she broke up with me and I needed help but everything I did to recover her back did not work. If not for the intervention of Lord Zakuza who I met online, I wouldn't have gotten back my girlfriend because Lord Zakuza prepared a love spell that brought her back to me within 48 hours. I love my girlfriend and I'm happy getting her back again. Thank you Lord Zakuza and I promise to share my experience with you to everybody so that anyone that needs help in any way can also get help too for you are a good and wonderful man that God has sent to help those who need help.. Here's his contact information just in case you need any help from him. WhatsApp/call number +1 (740) 573-9483 or Email:
