Our wuffly ickle bastard cat pictured looking suitably triumphant last night.
A deeply unpopular, and largely ignored, online satirical magazine have claimed, that after months of trying, they have finally achieved a Facebook “like” after accompanying one of their skits with a photograph of a bastard cat.
Editor-In-Chief of SoZ Satire Magazine, Clive Danton, 21, said.
“It was nothing short of a miracle to be honest with you. After months of posting our skits on our timelines and our FB page without so much as a barbed comment from people on our friends list, or a reluctant share from close family members, this “like” just came flooding in. To say we in the office were gobsmacked doesn’t even come close to be fair.
“Things were getting pretty desperate for us in all honesty and a number of the staff had turned to strong drink and loose women to deaden the pain of being shunned by social media. At least that’s what they told me anyway. Our showbiz editor even complained that his extra-marital affairs were suffering as a direct result, so we knew that desperate measures were called for.
“The credit for our salvation and burgeoning popularity has to go to my sub-editor Alfie, who hit upon the idea of posting a small photograph of his bastard cat to accompany a spoof story we were planning to run about Olly Murs having a big face. He insisted this could be the way forward as he’d previously noticed how people that constantly rammed pictures of their pets down people’s throats seemed to attract a huge amount of “likes”, “shares”, comments and other accolades from their fellow Facebook users.
“I must admit I was sceptical at first but then decided to take the bull by the horns, so to speak, and the rest, as they say, is history. We are even planning to photoshop a picture of the Sports Editor’s Staffordshire Bull Terrier onto the front cover of our December issue. Well you never know do you?”
