“Remember that time when you were looking at a sunset by the sea and I snuck up behind you and pushed you in the water? Happy days man! Happy days eh?”

"Hey, there are some brownies in the kitchen that I made!“
five minutes later
"Oh these brownies are delicious…”
“They’ve got a secret ingredient. You have to guess”
“Hmm… courgette?”
“No”
“Beetroot?”
“No…”
“Okay I give up”
“Shall I tell you?”

I don’t get this, is it saying there are badgers in the brownies?


#1349

Yeah that was the joke. The secret ingredient is actually some kind of bean.

Why do BBC write like that? They don’t have paid advertising for fuck’s FFS.


#1351

It’s becoming more and more prevalent - it’s like their whole content strategy is now influenced by buzzfeed.


#1352

It’s really, really irritating. I’d understand if they were doing it on the content that has paid advertising overseas, but there is literally a 5 things we learned from Later With Jools Holland article on there today.


#1353

Almost every fucking one’s content nowadays is influenced by Buzzfeed. It’s decimating journalism (though I am not sure if it is 10% that’s fucked up or 90% - probably the latter).

“Fifty Ways To Photoshop The Balonz Balloon. #27 Will Make You Piss Yourself Laughing!”


#1355

Even away from the Buzzfeed-style articles, they seem to have adopted a much more informal and conversational style across a lot of the news website. It’s quite infuriating.


#1356

big thumbs-up for the correct use of ‘decimating’, there. :+1:


#1357

It’s one of my bugbears in the world of journalism. :slight_smile:


#1358

A lot of their articles promise lots from the headline and then the article is something completely different or if just tails off like they couldn’t be bothered to finish properly.


#1359

Cant believe i read this


#1360

Fuck. Off.


#1361

Fucking hell. This wins the thread.


#1362

So, like every single article anywhere on the internet?
