Welcome to Ye Olde NewsBiscuit Gift Shoppe – ‘abandon cash all ye who enter’
Turning left down a darkened alley, you spy an old curiosity shop – brimming with strange potions and unwanted bric-a-brac. A half-lit sign swings precariously from flaking brickwork. The letters WO-LWO-THS are obscured by crude graffiti declaring this to be ‘NewsBiscuit, purveyor of filth and lies’. Inside you will find all manner of oddities, authored by our NewsBiscuit team. Some of it barely legal. Some of it barely legible. Please browse from our exotic wares; including well-thumbed books, novelty gizmos and a bespoke collection of c$ck rings.
Looking for a Xmas stocking-filler? Or a good book to take to the loo? Why not buy ’NewsBiscuit: 15 Years of Typos’. This humble collection of stories is the culmination of years of frantic scribbling and three minutes of careful editing.
‘Five stars? I thought I was reviewing a toaster’ – Amazon Reviewer
‘Although NewsBiscuit remains proud to have been Britain’s first daily news satire website, I am forced to admit that in the years that followed, others may have come along. Yeah, those bastards totally copied my idea of copying The Onion.’ John O’Farrell
‘All true’ – D.Trump
All profits from this book go directly to charity. We are delighted to support ‘Arts Emergency’ the award-winning mentoring charity and support network (https://www.arts-emergency.org/) helping young people get a fair start in arts and humanities. And ‘English Pen’ – one of the world’s oldest human rights organisations, championing the freedom to write and read around the word (https://www.englishpen.org/)
Hundreds of writers have contributed to the making of this irreverent book – which Mr. O’Farrell’s lawyers were keen to make very clear.
Coming soon. 'Five Go Dobbing In The Neighbours'. A compilation of all the best writing from 2020-2021. We'll probably mention Covid at least twice!
