What happened when a job applicant used the same CV but 3 different identities "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

They did an experiment in Germany where the same woman with the same CV applied for the same jobs, but with three different identities.

When we say identities, we mean she changed her name and in one case, wore a head scarf.

This is what happened.

The fact that it was entirely predictable doesnt make it any less shocking, whatever language you are reading it in.

Although, given the state of some of the replies to the original tweet, you can see why its not matched by reality.

Waitrose to stop offering change to enhance customer experience "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Following on from its recent exciting news to cease giving customers a free coffee, upmarket supermarket Waitrose has identified other ways to please customers.

Providing change is just an irritant, dont you agree? asked Shona, a customer relations officer for Waitrose. Thats why were rounding up all our product lines to multiples of five pounds, going forward. And what about value for money? Overrated or what, she added, failing to mention the supermarket chain had never been accused if it previously.

What ordinary people want is a small basket of unpronounceable foods that are unrecognisable to their neighbours in exchange for a small fortune, a free newspaper and an instantly recognisable Waitrose bag for life, only 7.50 each. Hang on, did I say free newspaper?

Online Dinner Recipe a Fucking Novel for Some Reason "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

PHILADELPHIA An online dinner recipe for a simple, vegan-friendly lentil soup has allegedly been written as a fucking novel for some reason, hungry sources confirmed late last night.

I used to love food blogs, said 34-year-old amateur chef Alex Ford, endlessly scrolling through page after page of meandering writing. But, for fucks sake, why is this so long? I didnt realize had Ernest Hemingway on staff. I just need to know what lentils to purchase.

While upset, Ford privately admitted the recipe captivated him at points.

To be honest, this part of the recipe is getting pretty good the protagonist is at the doctors office to get her diagnosis, but the doctor is actually her husbands mistress, said Ford, adjusting his glasses and his tofu down to a low simmer. I have to see where this goes, and whether I need to borrow an immersion blender.

Literary critic and New York Times Book Review contributor Stefanie Milheisner noted many Americans struggle to finish recipes.

On average, most Americans have half-finished reading six different recipes at any given time. I recommend easy, light recipes and self-help recipes short enough to read on a commute, yet lighthearted, Milheisner suggested. Try finding recipes with which to curl up next to a fireplace. You dont want it to feel like a fucking chore when all you want is to set your ovens temperature.


Food blogger and diarist Karina Boulard defended narrative recipes, claiming most people are equally hungry for nourishment and content about her fun-loving family of four.

You dont just come to my website to learn how to make deviled eggs, Boulard said. You come to be immersed my weekend with my 6-year-old twins, my husbands infected toenail, and what my therapist thinks of my relationship with my father.

She later added, Only then will you see an ingredient list, and thats after clicking on two or three links to get to the other website that actually h...

Impressive! Man Doubles Podcast Audience Overnight By Convincing Coworker to Listen "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Meet Walter Flannery. 64-year-old file clerk, two-time divorcee, grandfather of two beautiful pomeranians, and podcasting entrepreneur.

Walter is one of 43 million Americans with a podcast. And recently he doubled his audience after finally convincing his coworker Sarah to listen!

For a while there it was just my very much alive mother listening. But through hard-work and my unique insights into hot button topics like race and politics, I was able to increase my total audience by an astounding 100 percent! I bet pretty soon that Leesa lady with the mattresses will be wanting to sponsor my show.

Related: 7 Best Podcasts About Unsolved Murders I Committed


But what the heck is a podcast, anyway?

A Podographic Castaphone Broadcast or podcast was invented by professional misanthrope and fired Air America DJ, Mark Maron. Marons maiden podcast was a mere 7-second recording of him asking for his assistant Kevin Smith.

Mr. Smith. Come here. I want to see you.

In subsequent podcasts Maron would not only ask people to come see him, but he would also spend hours apologizing for past misgivings while simultaneously slinging fresh insults at his guests.

From Marons rudimentary recordings more than 20 years ago came an exceedingly popular podcasting industry that might be effectively monetized at some point.

Recording technology is now affordable enough that even a regular Joe living with his not dead mom can sling the casts. Which is great, because Ive got these dark thoughts gnawing at my brain all hours of the day and I needed to expunge them from my skull.

Still, a good podcast is nothing without its audience. Thats why we asked Sarah, Walters coworker and 50 percent of his audience, what she thinks about his show.

Um so yeah, one day, after telling me about his so-called podcast, I come into work to find a cassette tape with the words YOU written on it just sitting on my keyboard. The tape was hours of Walters conversation with his mother which was definitely just him in a more high-pitched voice, ranting about the impending race wars. I wish to God I never listened to that tape.

What a ringing endorsement, Sarah! Keep reaching for the stars, Walter!

Seagulls on smack "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Heroin and chips have become the meal of choice for coastal communities and thieving seagulls. So addicted to H have the birds become, that many will bombard innocent beach-goers enjoying the simple pleasures of sunshine and syringe filled with birdie powder.

Seaside resort towns are said to have the highest death rates through heroin, but that is mainly due to jacked-up seagulls colliding with shipping. The average seagull can consume its own bodyweight in heroin every day, meaning that being shat upon by a seagull is still considered to be lucky and has a street value of 20 hence the expression this shit is good.

Holidaymakers hoping to enjoy a nice cone of chips or a bag of china white, are advised to gently heat their heroin undercover of a beach brolly. If families want to share needles, they should do so behind a windbreak, away from doped-up gulls and at least thirty minutes before swimming.

Said one tourist: I was busy chasing the dragon and then all of sudden I was being frantically pursued by a herring gull. It was like Hitchcock had directed Trainspotting. Worse still, I got sand in my sandwich although its still technically purer than the smack I bought.

Anime Shitposting Group Closest Thing Man Has to Family "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

RICHMOND, Va. That the only people local bachelor Scott Eckhart feels a familial connection with are the members of an anime shitposting Facebook group he created, according to close sources.

I was never really close with my parents, and dating hasnt worked out too well for me, said the 33-year-old Eckhart. But luckily Ive fostered a really supportive community online. Theyre like the family I always wished for growing up.

The Facebook group, called Joseph Weeaboomans loliposting dumpster, has over 14,000 members, and primarily features intentionally poor memes related to Japanese cartoons of young-looking women. Eckhart is the sole moderator.

Read More From Hard Drive, The Only Ethical Gaming Journalism Site on The Internet:

I give as much time and dedication to nurturing the loliposting dumpster as any man gives to his family, he said. Keep in mind, I dont just repost stuff I find, I make memes, too. Sometimes the stuff I make ends up reposted in other shitposting groups. Its incredible seeing something that was once entirely yours and vulnerable go out into the world on its own. Kinda like watching children grow up. My memes are my children.

Members of the group generally hail Eckharts leadership, citing both his commitment and his compassion for the members.

That group is great, said one member, Jacob Cohen. The admin is always online, and every time he posts a hentai meme, he always includes the sauce. I show it to my waifu Asuna all the time. Just a lot of really dank stuff in there.

UN appoint Jeremy Kyle to lead international conflict resolution "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

'why can't we all just get along?'The United Nations have announced the appointment of Jeremy Kyle to take up the newly created position of President of the Resolution of International Conflicts (PRIC). The move, sponsored by, sees the smug presenter build on the success of his ITV show, and may also help bring a whole new daytime audience to the tiring war and tyranny format.

The first series will see me take on some of the worlds biggest conflicts Mr Kyle, 46, explained in a Heat magazine interview. Robert Mugabe will discuss his human rights abuses, Kim Jong-Un will talk about his nuclear ambitions, and Nicolas Sarkozy will try to overcome his short-man syndrome, all in front of an unemployed, blood thirsty studio audience.

The programme will also include features that are the staple of the regular chat show. Syrian president, Bashir Hafez al-Assad, will be the first world leader to face the lie detector. He will be asked if he has told his troops to continue fighting despite the ceasefire, if he ordered the murder of thousands of civilians and if has ever had sexual contact with any other world leader.

Some may see the last question as irrelevant, Mr Kyle told the reporter, but we need to discover why China and Russia dont want to upset him.

India and Pakistan have also agreed to appear. For many years they have tried to use their armies to sort out the custody arrangements of Kashmir, but Mr Kyle and the rest of the production team believe that after a brief nuclear moment on stage, their differences can be resolved by the aftercare team.

One of the more controversial shows will see the Israelis and Palestinians come together in front of a television audience and decide once and for all who owns the West Bank with a DNA test. Jordan have asked to come and help with the debate but it has been decided the average Jeremy Kyle watcher would be disappointed not to see Katie Price.

Yassmin Abdel-Magied Deportation Reaffirms Miranda Devines Belief In God "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

When ews Australian citizen Yassmin Abdel-Magieds had been deported from the United States filtered through to The Daily Telegraphs offices, columnist Miranda Devine begun weeping with joy and shouting: There is a God, yes, there is a God!

I need to apologise to my colleagues but sometimes when you get good news you just have to celebrate it, said a jubiliant Devine. I mean you hope and pray that something like this would happen but youre never sure if God hears your prayers. Especially now as its the Commonwealth games and he has a lot of prayers from athletes to answer.

Like Devine, other columnists such as Andrew Bolt and Rita Panahi were also feeling in a celebratory mood.

Bolt said of the news: Its been a tough week, what with Malcolm not resigning when he hit 30, but this news is just great. Think of the columns, opinion pieces and Sky News stories Ill be able to churn out, thisll keep me busy for months.

Newscorp has cancelled all leave for columnists and journalists (sic) and has promised to cover Yassmin Abdel-Magied 24/7, so business as usual really.

One who smelt it dealt it conviction unsafe confirms Judge "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

The conviction of a Leeds schoolboy for polluting the local atmosphere was quashed in the High Court today. Michael Jones, 13, had raised concerns about a particularly smelly fart produced during a year 8 English class, which, based on smell and considerable circumstantial giggling and cries of hes shat him sen, hypothesised that the offence had come from Paul McBride seated two desks behind him.

In the furore that ensued and the original trial, McBride used the tried and trusted The one who smelt it dealt it defence, first used in Stockton Comprehensive school back in 1974, noted Judge Peter Stenson. This temporarily deflected attention back onto the hapless Jones with what was by all accounts an eye- watering pea-supper .

Whilst McBride cleverly retorted, almost instantaneously with The one that denied it supplied it, unfortunately for him, most of the class was already pointing at him, holding their noses and wafting their textbooks around in a highly exaggerated fashion to try and disperse the smell., continued Stenson. When the English teacher asked Jones if hed had a curry the night before, his fate was effectively sealed.

Crucial new evidence was brought before the High Court. First, a new witness, fellow classmate Ricky Davies, came forward, indicating that he had heard McBride deliver the fart on the day in question, with McBride chanting Watch out for this, too good to miss, here comes an eggy boff, whilst raising one butt cheek upwards and mimicking a gun firing as he released a rasper.

Secondly, the court heard that Jones original lawyer was negligent in not using the one that said the rhyme, did the crime defence. Had either Jones used this on the day of the fart, or in court, the perpetrator would never have actually have been able to be identified with any certainty given that each party would actually have said a rhyme so ner ner , noted Stenson. We would have all forgotten about it by afternoon break.

Mr McBride is now being investigated for more than 20 instances of letting off Silent But Deadlies and three cases of following through in a maths lesson.


Cycling Buddies Abbott And Andrews To Compete On MKR "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Channel 7 announced today that the next season of My Kitchen Rules will feature lifelong cycling buddies Tony Abbott and Kevin Andrews competing to win the title.

We have so far avoided using so called celebrities on the show, said a Channel 7 Spokesperson. However as our polling suggested neither Andrews or Abbott are popular enough to be considered a celebrity so it works well for us.

When asked how he felt they would go on the show the Channel 7 Spokesperson said: Im not sure, they seem to work well together however they do have some odd requests. For instance they insist on using a coal fired oven and Tony always seems to be taking knives claiming he needs to give them to his friend Malcolm.

Said Kevin Andrews of his upcoming appearance on My Kitchen Rules: Am looking forward to getting into the kitchen and getting behind Tony.

Mr Abbott was also keen to talk up his future My Kitchen Rules appearance saying: It will be good for the show and the Australian public to see Kevin and I in the kitchen in our lycra. Dare I say it we will bring a bit of sex appeal back to televison.

Government admits to having a secret stash of Extra Police Officers "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

It has been revealed that Home Secretary Amber Rudd has access to an undefined number of additional policemen and women, available to be deployed as and when required. It is understood that these officers are employed to sit around doing nothing until a law and order crisis develops that causes the Government to announce that there will be Extra Police Officers On The Street.

In order to perform to the required standards, these extra police officers cannot be from the same forces that are already stretched due to dwindling numbers, hence the secret stockpile. Nor can they be under the control of Police and Crime Commissioners because that might make some people think PCCs actually do something.

It is claimed that these Extra Police Officers On The Streets may be the same set of police staff that are deployed to perform breathalyser tests during the month of December before disappearing into the shadows again as soon as the New Years Eve celebrations are over.


Half-Pack of Cigarettes Found on Venue Floor Triples Crust Punks Net Worth "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

DALLAS Ricardo the Scuzz Garza tripled his net worth last night when he found a half of a pack of cigarettes on a venue floor, financial reports confirmed.

I didnt set out to invest in this half-pack of cigarettes when I went to see Annihilated Authority I was just looking for my left shoe in the pit, said Garza, whose net worth before his remarkable find consisted of a random assortment of foreign coins and a half-eaten burrito. But, as an investor, youve always got to be ready to spring on a huge chance like this. I am getting close to retirement age so this couldnt have come at a better time.

Financial analysts, like Valerie Rawls, were impressed by Garzas know-how.

After the great safety pin crash of 16, everyone is on the lookout for the next big investment opportunity and cigarettes might be exactly that. Theyre already huge in prisons. They could become a defacto currency for punks as well, said Rawls. Its been a rough stretch for punks looking to diversify. Lawmakers passed a devastating new tariff on goods sold at merch tables, and with yet another quarter ending with losses for the patch market, many are doubting it will ever recover.

Meanwhile, Garza is already seeing massive returns on his initial investment.


Lets face it: this half-empty pack of cigarettes many of which are broken nearly in half isnt recession-proof. Ive traded some of this initial investment for mostly full cans of beer with minimal backwash, and some weed, said Garza. I also have a meeting with some of the high-rollers in the drink ticket market early next week that could be quite fruitful.

Many within the punk community applauded Garzas business savvy.

Hes a true inspiration, said Garzas friend and fellow crust punk James Warts Worley. I think were going to see a new economic era for punks because of Scuzzs revolutionary investment portfoli...


The last line on this Imperial War Museum exhibit is the most British thing youll see this week "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

A chap called Tom Wilkinson was visiting the Imperial War Museum when this bright orange escape suit caught his eye.

Except it wasnt the suit that prompted him to share it on Twitter, it was the explanation next to it.

And in case its tricky to read

In 1980 Britain announced that it would replace its ageing stock of Polaris missiles with the American Trident system.

In 2014 the Royal navy were operating four nuclear submarines armed with Trident II D-5 ballistic missiles. This force makes up Britains independent nuclear deterrent.

This bright orange escape suit was designed to help crew members to escape if a Trident submarine sank. It was left behind in a pub in Barrow-in-Furness after a fancy dress party.

If Wrestlings Fake, Why Are So Many Of Them Dead? "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Im so tired of hearing people say that professional wrestling is fake. These men and women put their blood, sweat, and steroids into this profession. It seems like every week a different wrestler is out with an injury, or worse. So for you naysayers out there, my question is this: if wrestlings fake, why are so many of them dead?

Macho Man, Chyna, Eddie Guerrero what do these people have in common? Huge biceps, and theyre all dead as shit. Christ, they even had a dude die IN THE RING once. Theres no way that would happen if wrestling was fake.

You constantly hear stories of these athletes attaining injuries during televised matches, and more often than not they FINISH the match with a gnarly fucking injury. Triple H blew his quad and finished the fucking match. Before that he kidnapped and married the CEOs daughter. Whats so fake about that? Jesus, one time I saw Mankind lose his shitkicking ear!

Hell, even some of the ladies are dead. Sensational Sherri? Boom, gone. Mae Young? Fucking gone. Even some of the announcers are dead! Bobby Heenan died way after he even worked there! Now, thats dedication. If wrestling is so fake where did The Brain go, huh??

Look at the Ultimate Warrior for Flairs sake. He went from wishing a painful, cancerous death on Bobby Heenan, to talking shit about Hurricane Katrina victims and MLK. If the life of being a pro wrestler isnt what made that guy go absolutely fucking batshit, then what did?!

I hope you cynics now recognize how silly you were. This is obvious, people! Theres nothing FAKE about wrestling. Look at Chris Benoit he killed his family and himself with wrestling moves and a weight machine. What could possibly more real than that?!

Cambridge Analytica, the company at the heart of the Facebook data scandal, is unhappy with some of the coverage its been receiving in newspapers and on television.

So unhappy that it sent out this legal warning of sorts to anyone who was interested.

And the replies are very satisfactory indeed. Here are our 11 favourites.

Hungarian Government challenges George Ezra to leave his house in Budapest "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Newly elected for a third consecutive term, Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, has challenged George Evra to leave it all: his house in Budapest; his beautiful Castillo; and his many artefacts. (The list goes on).

A court order, issued today, also directs the solo artist to reveal the whereabouts of his hidden treasure chest.

Orban`s Fidesz party, recently dismissed accusations of right-wing, nationalist electioneering, and Islamophobia, on the basis that, some of our best friends have phobias.

Similarly, the party emphatically denies any anti-migrant agenda towards the musician who, they claim, would be happy to lose it all. As a goodwill gesture they are also prepared to allow Ezra to retain his golden grand piano. Citing the instrument as tainted by flawed and erroneous symbolism, contrary to Hungarian tradition.

A Party delegate stated: Ebony and Ivory was never a good mix. Despite what Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney claim.

Currently, Ezra has maintained a stoic refusal to relinquish any of his assets, neglecting to remain completely faithful to the sentiment of his lyrics. Issuing a statement, via his lawyer, he said: Give me one good reason why I should make a change.

Health alert as more police fall victim to collective amnesia "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

can't even remember where they parked the carThe Home Office has warned that it is considering declaring a public health emergency after yet another police force was diagnosed with rampant collective amnesia.

Collective amnesia? Never heard of it. What does it actually mean? was the response from a spokesperson from Surrey Police on their members inability to remember high profile offences. Its a rare condition, whose medical name is Amnesia Constabularia, and for which there is no cure.

Its now understood to have broken out in the Metropolitan Police as well, with a Met spokesperson confessing that the London force cant remember what institutional racism is. It does sound nasty, and well catch the people responsible, if this thing.. institutional something-or-other . turns out to be a crime. Once we remember the password to our PCs then well look it up on Wikipedia, and get back to you.

Its understood senior police officers have now collectively forgotten Hillsborough, the Miners Strike, the telephone number of the Sunday Times and the correct use of a truncheon.

In some cases, undercover officers are struck with the illness while embedded with dangerous environmentalists. They totally forget they are police officers, sleep with activists and in some cases have their children and even eat live yoghurt. When their official minders remind them they are police officers and not a violent terrorist threat to the fabric of society, they are understandably traumatised and approach the Guardians Mariella Frostrup for help.

At a conference organised by the Police Federation, officials asked for understanding about the condition. Policing is a demanding stressful occupation, with risks attached to maintaining a constant vigilance. Its our duty to, er uphold the, erm, rule ofsomething. Law! Thats it! Uphold the rule of law! So we want to make clear, in answer to your..would you mind asking the question again? I cant quite remember what it is. But if it does involve something that happened more than a week ago, Ill have to write it down. If I can remember where I put my, er

Teenager Borrows Fathers Suit For Court Appearance "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Mark Zuckerberg

After being strongly advised by his mother that a hoodie and jeans would not cut it today, a Californian teen today arrived in court today wearing a slightly ill-fitting suit borrowed from his dad.

The teen who had never worn a suit before looked slightly uncomfortable as he buttoned and then unbuttoned the suit jacket and fiddled with the safety pins his mother had used to shorten the trouser legs.

The boy was careful not to touch his tie which was slightly askew acutely aware that he would not know how to re-tie it should it come undone.

Luckily his hair was neat cut by his mother the night before using a bowl.

Stressed-Out Climate Scientist Secretly Pretty Happy With This Weather "IndyWatch Feed Satire"


Sure this unseasonal Autumn heat wave is just one more harbinger of the rapidly developing ecological crisis that could see average temperatures hit the safe limit of 1.5 degrees, admitted Michelle Green, a Sydney-based CSIRO scientist specialising in climate change research of the unseasonably hot spell hitting Australias eastern states.  But it really does make a welcome break from how dreary some of those mid-April days could be when Autumn was still a thing.

Lounging on a beach towel at Bondi Beach today, Ms Green confided to The (un)Australian that she had spent the past months working on bloody depressing research into temperatures in the Arctic, which have been between 10-20C above average in recent months, and so was desperate for a relaxing day off.

This is just perfect, exactly what I needed to take my mind off the increasingly unavoidable evidence weve possibly irreversibly crossed key boundaries of a safe climate while governments just push ahead facilitating new fossil fuel projects dooming humanity to an ever-worsening ecological disaster.

Whod have thought Id get a new chance to bust out the bikini this late into Autumn, huh?

When did Julian Assange turn Wikileaks BAD? "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Was Julian Assange protecting bastards while he was supposed to be crushing them? When it comes to crushing bastards, there are only certain bastards hes willing to crush, according to internal sources.

The full discussion is here, in a brand new episode of Hate Radio, from, brought to you incredibly by Lebal Drocer Incorporated. In the episode, editors kilgoar and hatesec pinpoint the moment Assange took Wikileaks down its dark path.

Basically its antijournalism, is what you could call it, says kilgoar, a editor and leading Wikileaks expert.

Was Julian Assange protecting bastards when he was supposed to be crushing them? When it comes to crushing bastards, there are only certain bastards he's willing to crushKILGOAR, OF CHRONICLE.SU, EXPLAINS WIKILEAKS FROM HIS FORTIFIED COMPOUND DEEP BENEATH THE EARTH.

After the recording of the latest Internet Chronicle bombshell podcast, Rustle League successfully DoS attacked Julians personal Twitter account, disabling it permanently.

Julian Assange can maintain this claim that hes totally impartial and hes just publishing whatever he gets his hands on and, on the other hand all the promotion of it is done to put the magnifying glass on, say, Hillary Clinton, for example, or various government figures that are representatives of the neoliberal world order that Julian Assange wants to destroy.

Niantic Adds 23 New Players to Pokmon Go "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

SAN FRANCISCO In a move sure to delight longtime fans of the mobile game, Niantic announced that it would be adding twenty-three new players to Pokmon Go.

We are proud of all the hard work and long hours our team put it to make this herculean task a reality, Niantic CEO John Hanke triumphantly said before an assembly of one napping journalist. Whether it was begging friends and family to reinstall the game, or having employees sneak into AT&T stores and downloading the game on unopened phones, we finally achieved our goal.

Read More From Hard Drive, The Only Ethical Gaming Journalism Site on The Internet:

The company promised that the twenty-three brand new users would be a boon to the current player base who have stuck with the game since the beginning.

Now when our players are asked by their loved ones why they are still playing that game the rest of the world got tired of years ago, there is a chance one of these new players will overhear and go Hey, theres actually a pretty dedicated community and its still glitchy but not as glitchy anymore, before scurrying off, stated Dennis Hwang, the lead designer of the game.  

Did we squander the greatest opportunity to ever befall our company? Not quite! Hwang added, pointing to a chart of active Pokmon Go users and excitedly showing off the recent twenty-three player bump.

After the update was released live, Niantic servers were overloaded and crashed when two players attempted to catch pokmon within the same park.

Ambo Rudd launches personal campaign of violence "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Frustrated with the legacy of police cuts, the failure of stop and politely enquire and with Mayor Khan apparently hiding under his desk, Home Secretary Amber Rudd has taken the knife crime epidemic into her own hands.

There are two ways to tackle this, she rasped. One way is to promote training in parenting skills, set up youth clubs and establish a culture of aspiration for deprived youth using a network of community mentors. The other is to pre-empt the fuckers by squeezing them till their eyeballs burst. I choose the latter.

Our reporter accompanied the self-styled Ambo on a patrol of Tottenham in the early hours. Spotting four youths chatting by a burger van, Ambo lost no time in forestalling any criminal future on their part by laying them out with a baseball bat. Bag em and tag em, bitch she cried, before sprinting across the road to intercept a young girl alighting from a minicab.

Snarling Your move, creep, she dispatched the teen with a spinning heel kick. Our reporter witnessed four further hours of relentless combat before retiring, dazed. Ambo was still going strong, wild-eyed, her knuckles raw, the morning dew joining the pearls of perspiration on the hair of her upper lip.

Two weeks later and Ambos daily patrols have brought an eerie calm to night-time London. The streets are empty, the hospitals full. The under twenties cower at home. We ask Ambo for a motivational message for the capitals youth. She responds Im your worst nightmare. Stay out of trouble. Choose your future. Choose no knife.


Abbott To Challenge.Commonwealth Games Cycling Team "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Former Prime Minister and lycra afficianado Tony Abbott has announced today that he will challenge the current Commenwealth games cycling team to a race.

I believe most Australians think that it is time that this team of cyclists face up to a real challenge, said the former Prime Minister. We have had to watch them compete for over 30 negative newspolls, I mean 30 cycling events and they have not achieved nearly half as much as I have with my team.

I promise the Australian people that should I and my very close cycling buddy Kevin Andrews have the numbers over these cyclists that we will make Australia great again.

We will put our pedal to the metal or in this case coal and lead us back to the halycon days of 2014.

Cycling Australia did not respond to Mr Abbotts challenge, despite the various editorials from Alan Jones, Andrew Bolt and Ray Hadley for them to do so.
