Paper Monitor

15:37 UK time, Tuesday, 27 November 2012

A service highlighting the riches of the daily press.

To the Daily Mirror's 3am gossip page for news of what Chris Brown has been up to. It's a bit rude, so the paper has had to redact its report somewhat.

You @!?!@*.. you're @!?!@*@ @%!%

Thanks for that, Chris.

Over to the Daily Express Weather™, which is truly in its element, with flood coverage inside and a front page headline screaming:


Well, it is winter.

And the Times poses a question for all the polyglots out there:

What's the German for balderdash?

And finally, the Sun has a pop at Joey Barton for speaking in an 'Allo 'Allo accent.

Bad boy footie ace Joey Barton showed some Gaul yesterday - speaking in a daft French accent at a press conference

Paper Monitor rather enjoyed it. Particularly the way he accessorised his accent with matching body language - Gallic shrugs and lip-curls. That's attention to detail.
