The Soz Satire Laboratory Proudly Present: “The Rasta Blaster” E-Spliff.


“Blessed love me yoot!” A satisfied customer pictured with our de-luxe “Big Bambu” model.


After 2 days of dedicated research, we at The Soz Satire Laboratory have developed a safe and spiritually uplifting, electronic substitute for the conventional marijuana cigarette, or spliff.

The Rasta Blaster contains no harmful tobacco or mind-altering THC, the active ingredient in conventional cannabis. What’s more we can absolutely guarantee you will experience no discernible effect whatsoever, no matter how many of our specially formulated joints you “smoke”.  So no more feeling ‘spaced-out’ and wondering why everybody’s looking at you in such a malevolent manner or suffering from annoying loss of long and short-term memory. We have also eradicated the hysterical laughing side effect, along with the compulsion to eat your own weight in Ritz Crackers and Jammy Dodgers.

The Rasta Blaster can be used any time, anywhere, whether it be in the workplace, at home, in public houses and even places of worship, safe in the knowledge that you’re not going to begin tapping your foot maniacally or wishing you were watching a Disney cartoon wrapped in a duvet.

Retailing at just £25 or $56,000 if you live in the United States, we guarantee you’ll be absolutely delighted with your purchase, which comes with our unbeatable money back guarantee, if you return your Rasta Blaster without having opened the box within 5 minutes of delivery.

Here’s a testimonial from one of our thousands of satisfied customers:

Soz Satire’s Ever-So-Slightly Satirical, Soporific Sermons


Steinbeck pictured in sanguine mood despite not having any WordPress followers.


In a rare moment of sober reflection the other day, it occurred to me that had John Steinbeck been a WordPress contributor he would have remained unread, undiscovered, unheard-of, unloved, and in my opinion, absolutely unperturbed.

I make this somewhat bold statement based on the fact that the great man was a rather shy and distinctly humble individual who would have baulked mightily against the rather duplicitous and, for me,  wryly amusing, system of plaudit-awarding nonsense that holds sway here.

Ergo, he would have had no ‘followers’, no ‘likes’ and no comments. In short, it would be to the world as if he had never existed. However, I am wholly convinced he would have continued to produce works of great beauty and would have been utterly unfazed by his lack of ‘popularity’ among his contemporaries.

This is because writing was in his soul. It burned bright within him and he needed no plaudits or hearty pats on the back from complete strangers to feed the flame of his genius.

In short, if somebody here tells you that your work is sublime, and waxes lyrical about its great beauty and brilliance, it isn’t, and nor is theirs. If either was the case, neither you nor they would be here. It’s rather unsettling isn’t it my friends?

So my advice is to take pleasure in the act of writing itself, take all the reciprocal accolades with a storage jar of salt, as they are naught but a returned pleasantry. For myself, I neither seek nor require encouraging reassurances that I’m some kind of literary colossus, a gem lying undiscovered beneath a blanket of mediocrity. Indeed, as the mighty Steinbeck himself might well have put it: “I just write my shit and get the fuck out”

The Soz Satire Mint Proudly Present: The WordPress Blog-O-Mate Butt Plug Of Hope

Vini…escriti…rehashi. I came…I wrote…I reblogged.

The League of Mental Men!

This piece first appeared in Soz Satire magazine and was nominated for The Liebster “I’m A Nosy, Intrusive Bastard Award” but was subsequently withdrawn for being too judgemental and searingly erotic.

Soz Satire’s Heavily-Edited Children’s Classics: The Ugly Duckling

ugly duckling

^^^^ Christ, what a hound!


SCENE ONE:  A pond in Denmark where a duckling, looking morose and introspective after catching a glimpse of its reflection  in the water, sighs heavily as a slow tear runs down it’s pretty unimpressive face…

Duckling: Christ I look like shit on a stick!  I’ll never get any pussy at this rate!

6 months later…

Duckling: If I wasn’t such a complete munter I’d probably be knee-deep in tidy duck blart by now.

Passing Canada Goose overhears and does double-take…

Canada Goose: Munter?! What are you on about son? You’re as fit as a butcher’s dog! In fact, if I wasn’t a male Canada Goose I’d slip you a length myself! Just have a butchers at your reflection in the drink and you’ll see what I’m driving at squire.

The duckling glances down into the water and lets out exultant exclamation of joy…

Duckling: Bloody stroll on! You’re right mate! I’m an absolute babe! Right, where’s all the hot chicks? HUBBA  HUBBA!

The End

Author’s Note: Some of the more astute readers may have noticed that this outrageous defiling of a wonderful, children’s tale is replete with East London (cockney) vernacular. This is because I haven’t yet mastered the skill of typing with a Danish accent, but I’m working on it…honest.

India In Grip Of Mystery Plague As Cricket World Cup Semi-Final Gets Under Way.

indian cricket fans

A number of Indians pictured writhing in agony as mystery plague strikes


Reports are coming in that the sub-continent of India has been hit by an unidentified virus, resulting in the entire population being unable to go to work. The economy ground to a halt as workers began calling into their places of employment en-masse, describing various debilitating symptoms, ranging from diarrhoea and sickness to spots on the tongue and even crippling back pain.

In a bizarre coincidence, the phenomenon coincided with India’s appearance in the cricket world cup semi-final against Australia at The Melbourne Cricket Ground today, a day which would normally be filled with great excitement and expectation among the cricket-mad population. Instead of which the streets of all the major cities are deserted, businesses have closed for the day, with only the eerie groaning of stricken victims to be heard emanating from their homes – unaccountably coinciding with an Australian boundary, or the fall of an Indian wicket.

A spokesman for the Indian Department Of Trade spoke to us from his home during the tea interval:

“It’s a real strange one isn’t it? I myself have been feeling extremely unwell you know. It started shortly before the Indian boys arrived at the MCG oddly enough. Let’s hope it’s just one of these  24 hour bugs. On the bright side, at least sexual assaults on public transport will be down for a while”

There were no similar problems in the country of India’s rivals, Australia, from where a government spokesman told us:

“Plague you say mate? Strewth, that’s a real bummer. Luckily it’s business as usual Down Under mate. Nobody’s lifting a bloody finger”

Sid Semtex: Murderous Jihadi Butcher & The Decorating Consultant You Can Trust

“God is great and so is my wallpapering!”


Dear Sid

I’m having a real problem removing some painted woodchip wallpaper from the walls of my lounge. I’ve tried scoring and soaking but to no avail. I’d really appreciate it if you could help me out with this one.

Thanks Sid

Dave Wisteria

Dear Dave


Try using a broad scraper to remove the top surface of the  paper, then soak and leave for a few hours. The stubborn residue should then be fairly easy to remove. Don’t forget to sand the surface before applying the first coat of paint.

All the very best Dave, and good luck with the job.

Dear Soz


Dear Soz Satire.

Christians tell us that God is omnipresent and that he’s in all places at all times. Well if that’s the case, he must have been in Spearmint Rhino strip club in Shaftsbury Avenue, West London, last night, watching women taking their clothes off for cash. Perhaps these so-called, devout, bible thumpers could tell me what the bloody hell he was doing in there?

I would also consider it a personal favour if they could also ask Him where I’ve parked my car as I’ve been drinking heavily and can’t find it.

Situations Vacant: Islamic Freedom Fighters Wanted

Blogger Loses 98% Of Followers Following Sudden Death

empty room

A proposed gathering of the dead woman’s WordPress followers fails to live up to expectations


A 34-year-old woman from Shoreditch in East London, reportedly lost almost all of her regular blog followers just two days after she collapsed and died in the street from a heart attack.

Jane Deptford, a care worker in an old folk’s home and a married mother of two, was a regular and popular blogger on the WordPress site, where she had amassed more than two thousand followers over a three year period. She was well -known for her good humour and her unfailing kindness to her fellow bloggers, who she referred to as her “WordPress Family”  However, according to her daughter, Tamsin, 16, who took on the distressing task of announcing her death to her online friends, almost all of them had unfollowed her mother and removed her from their Facebook friends lists within 36 hours of her final blog post.

We managed to trace a former follower of Mrs Deptford, who told us:

“Yes I had heard a rumour that Jane had died suddenly so I binned her straight away. I mean, what’s the point of following somebody who’s not going to be able to like your posts anymore let alone leave a comment? It’s just bloody pointless”

Another former long-term follower, a woman from Winsconsin in the USA, who had followed Mrs Deptford from her very first post and who had shared more that three thousand likes and comments with her, said:

“Obviously it’s not the best news you want to hear, but to be honest I won’t miss her that much. She could be a real boring pain in the ass sometimes. Always chatting about mundane, day-to-day stuff, you know, her family and shit like that. What you really want is somebody with a real chequered history of car crash relationships, somebody who’s constantly ripped to the tits on drink or drugs. Something that will really get the schadenfreude juices flowing. I gotta tell you, I started following a woman from England the other day who apparently likes to take it up the ass and who’s not afraid to announce the fact in front of millions of strangers. Now that’s what I call interesting shit right there my friend”

We also spoke to a London man who was one of a  tiny handful of  followers to remain loyal to the dead woman. He told us:

“Dead?…What the fuck! I wondered why the bitch hadn’t replied to my comment on her post the other day! Right, she’s history!”

Disclaimer: The above piece is heavily nuanced, broad satire, and in no way casts aspersions on the integrity of WordPress or suggests self-interest and duplicity among its  many posters. After all, everybody  here is everybody else’s best fucking friend…right?

Olly Murs To Use His Big Face To Provide Eclipse For Australians



He gotta big face.

In a remarkable gesture of goodwill, British pop icon, Olly Murs, will later on today, use his gigantic face to eclipse the sun in Australia to provide a spectacular solar display for the people ‘Down Under’, who, due to their geographical position, will be denied the partial solar eclipse that will be enjoyed by their British cousins later this morning.

At around 4.00pm Australian time, Murs will walk slowly across the Sidney Harbour Bridge where his enormous face will then gradually eat into the sun’s profile until, around 2 hours later, it will be blotted out completely.

Murs’s mother, Harriet, 156, told a press conference last night:

“Olly is absolutely over the moon to be helping the colonials like this. His dear father would be so proud of him. He had a bloody great dial on him too”

However, the Australian public are being warned not to listen to any of Murs’s hits during the phenomenon. A spokesman from the Australian Dept Of Health & Safety said:

“Listening to any of Olly’s recordings during the eclipse may cause acute aural trauma to the listener and may even make them wish to God they’d been born deaf”
