Guess which newspaper…

…is currently running this advert, via a talent agency

A national newspaper wants your story and will pay hundreds of pounds to the right person.

Write a few lines about how computer games turned you to crime and if it’s something we like, we’ll call you straight back.

Payment details: paid role

Created: 27 March 2008 Applications accepted until: 1 May 2008 Application criteria: Males & Females aged 0 to 60 from UK

Unless anyone fancies replying to the ad with a convincing line of bullshit, I guess we’ll have to wait until May to see which one runs the ‘computer games turned me into a criminal’ puff piece, so we can drag this one out for another airing. (via)

  1. I don’t have any writting talent but surely one of you bloggers can come up with some good bullshit to wind them up with.
    Regards John Gibson

  2. The funny thing is, septicisle, I like classic rock, certain metal bands, and old-school blues like Robert Johnson, so I very strongly dislike things like emo. I’m sort of torn as to whose side I’m on between MCR and the Hate Mail. Shame they can’t both lose the battle 😀

  3. I like MCR purely on the grounds of not taking them and their overblown entirety seriously. Treat them as a joke that makes occasionally catchy tunes and they’re fine.
