A mere two hours after the ignition of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva, a giant army of chocolate-eating zombies has reportedly swept across Switzerland and over the border from Basel into Germany where outbreaks of apologetic biting and collaborative law-making have been reported in cities from Munich to Hamburg. 'Toblerooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooone' Further to the panic reported in the streets of Switzerland and Germany, French authorities have prepared themselves for the onslaught of toblerone-devouring yobs who may try to surge across the alps in a frenzied search for more nougaty goodness. Our man on the ground, award-winning celebrity stalker Fithy Hack, caught up with some of the army of the undead and asked them what gives. This is a fragment from his last transmission inside the quarantine zone: Hack: Excuse me, can you tell me what it is your looking for? Zombie: Vell, it's very simple. We want direct...

Ladies! Are you going on holiday? Are you regularly away on business? Are you worried that during your absence your useless lump of a man will spend his time getting repeatedly muntered and horsing great bags of salted snacks down his already fattened gullet until you arrive home to discover a grossly overweight slug where your significant other used to be?

Photo of Lisbon Treaty poster by Dave Walsh Can't decide which way to vote on the contentious Lisbon Treaty? Worry no more, for the fearless hacks at blather.net have taken the time to summarise the top ten reasons why you should vote NO to those Euro-pinkos and their nefarious treaty. Voting YES to Lisbon will mean the following: 1. Your first born-son will be automatically drafted in the Supra-National EuroArmy and immediately dispatched to a cave in Afghanistan to serve as a human sacrifice on Osama Bin Laden's Altar of Muslim Atrocity. 2. Your first-born daughter will be taken from you in the middle of the night, flown to a unknown location and forced to dance naked for the amusement of faceless, braying Eurocrats in a giant Bavarian burlesque show whilst being pelted with lumps of raw meat to the sound of 'O Fortuna'. 3. 10% of your taxes will...

(image by Eric Hamilton.) Unconfirmed rumours came across the Blather desk this morning that bad-boy BBC Radio DJ Tim Westwood may have realised that he's actually white. All-round Blingmaster and Blather.net Correspondent Filthy Hack reports. Hack says: 'The alleged incident is reported to have occured in a late-night Soho club, just off Dean St. Eyewitnesses state that Westwood was 'avin' it large' in the (name withheld for legal reasons - ed.) club with several friends and assorted media students when Westwood's account of how he 'iz de man' and furthermore how he was 'bare cool, word to yo sista' was interrupted by a nearby native of Brixton, who puzzled by Westwood's behaviour is reported to have said 'Chief, you're whiter than flock of fuckin' sheep in a snowstorm' and that furthermore Westwood was 'nothing more than the modern equivalent of Smashie and Nicey'. Finally the man added that the DJ...

A snail has allegedly been scooped off the ground and arrested, allegedly, for allegedly expressing anti-Slimentologist views outside the London headquarters of the Church of Slimentology. Allegedly. Slimentologists were allegedly horrified to see a snail-trail on the pavement outside their building, which allegedly appeared to be English words drawn in slime. An alleged spokesman for the police told us that "the slime has been forwarded to the Crown Prosecution Service". But what were the alleged words of offence? We have received alleged reports that state that allegedly the alleged phrase was "Sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me", which allegedly outraged the alleged Church of alleged Slimentology, because, according to the alleged police spokesman, "snails don't have bones". Allegedly. Apart from raping and murdering a newborn baby and eating its brains with a plastic spoon, insulting Slimentology is the most serious crime in the...

No doubt you remember where you were when you heard about the shocking and horrible events of February 28. Feared academic, writer, rambler and digressionator, Noam Chomsky, was killed by a lone flying saucer in Antarctica, alongside his many lawyers. As is well known, Chomsky, the alleged author of The Art of Discreet Farting in Company, has powers of levitation, and he was hovering through Antarctica, along with his levitating conference table, around which were seated on levitating chairs his eleven lawyers, including Patricia "Libel Eyes" McInearnest and Diego "El Slandero" Jocacola. Chomsky was holding court, reminiscing fondly about his life's work, and was quoting from a piece he wrote in 1980 about the genocidal Cambodian Khmer Rouge regime: "The positive side of the picture has been virtually edited out." But Chomsky's ever-sunny outlook was soon to change. A flying saucer came in over the horizon, firing deadly laser beams,...

It's not every day I read about someone in the news and the next thing they up and die in the most bizarre fashion! The Right Honourable Jacqui Smith MP, Home Secretary (what the British in typical obscurantist fashion call their minister for justice) died tragically this evening in a pet shop in London. The politician was born 3 November 1962 in Malvern, Worcestershire, and worked as an economics teacher until she became the Member for Parliament for some place called Redditch in 1997. A New Labour drone, she wept in sackcloth and ashes at Tony Blair's last appearance in the House of Commons (while the rest of the world, with the possible exception of the people who were going to have to put up with him in the Middle East, felt like they'd just dropped two tabs of E). Oh, the ups and downs of Jacqui's life! A happier...
