Thank you!

I'd like to register a complaint to the forumshire Freedom of Choice Board Commitee. Surely in our free society we should be entitled to a choice of more than one newspaper?

Hmm, now that is a conundrum!

You are of course correct that in a free society there should be freedom of choice when it comes to news and information, but at the same time, our forum is one of free enterprise. So far only the Archet Bugle has chosen to exercise that freedom to create a forum newspaper. So unless you want government intervention and State News, I'm afraid the only solution is to hope that some entrepeneur will establish a competitor. Razz

ANTIPODEAN LATISH MORNING EDITION elephant


SCOTSHOBBIT LET'S SLIP WITH "GOMETORY."

Crabby raconteur and Scotshobbit-about-town, Mr Petty Tyrant, has gone on Public Record as saying, "Gometory", which no one in Forumshire has ever heard of. I have checked with Wisey Banks who has channelled up this response:

"Oh I'm goin' down to Gometory,
Gometory, me Lassie,
I'll be dancin' with Errol Flynn,
And also Shirley Bassey."


Wisey then informed the Bugle that the rest of that song is Unprintable. One can imagine the kind of place that is. Not surprising, as it appears to be in Egypt.

SPORTS REPORT

The Hobbiton Crosseyes defeated the Brandywine Brawlers 3 - 1 in the latest Boringfootball clash held at the Bywater Reserve. No one was injured but several players pretended to be.

Norby Anklegrinder won the Took Golf Cup - by half a head.

ANTIPODEAN LATEST elephant

RESPECTABLE HOBBITS COME OUT IN SUPPORT

While it is clear OUTRAGEOUS claims are being made in regard to the popularity of the "Hobbit Goss" ( a disreputable broadsheet which we at the Bugle refuse to mention by name) The Bugle will only report THE FACTS.

Word on the Street.

Mirabella Banks: "I read The Bugle every morning. It's not as glossy as a certain other paper, nor as "hip", nor does it have as many colours, but... well, The Archet Bugle is what my Uncle Odo reads.

Odo Banks: "I refuse to read any of the local newspapers. Scurrilous rubbish.... though I do like the colours on the new rag."

Wisey Banks: "I don't read newspapers, but if I did, it would surely be The Archet Bugle."

Porgy Bunk: "I wish I could read because I'm sure if I could read I could read a newspaper."

Grey Pilgrim: "Rubbbish. It's all rubbish. I don't know why you people bother."

Gandalf's Beard: "It's the Bugle for me." (Anticipated reply).

Petty Tyrant: "Och the nee nelly noo." (Translation: "Yes, me too." Anticipated reply).

Eldorion: "The Bugle is clearly the more Serious and Weighty Journal. It's Loremastery, unequalled. (Anticipated reply).

Kafria: "As an English teacher - and mother - I certainly would reccommend The Archet Bugle, both for it's educational value and it's High Moral Fibre." (Anticipated reply).

Ringdrotten: "If I wasn't from Norway, I'd certainly read the Bugle, but we only have Danish papers here." (Anticipated reply).

Tinuviel: "The Bugle has an Immortal Quality." (Anticipated reply).

Chris: "If only I wasn't lost, I'd be reading The Archet. Absolutely!" (Anticipated reply).

Need I go on?

"Stay Loyal, Stay Strong, Stay True."

Hoary Hardbuckle - Chief Reporter.

LATER YET elephant

BUGLE SUSPECTS BLATANT SELF-PROMOTION

As has Always been the case, we at the Bugle will always Point Out those who outrageously Self-promote. While everyone knows that our renowned resident, Gandalfs Beard, is a Horn Blower from way back, it now comes to pass that Someone Else, might be Blowing his/her Own Horn! Word on the Street suggests that a Certain Young Girl has been Boosting her Ego in a Certain scurrilous broadsheet by the name "Hobbit Goss." Our imputation is that this Shady Forumshirerer has created a "Pretend" Newspaper (Hobbit Goss) i.e. one that doesn't Actually exist, being merely a Scam (and possibly a Spam), and with the intention to Blatantly Self Promote. Of course, we at the Bugle Absolutely Abhor this kind of behaviour. Multiplying one's personalities on any Forum is Disgraceful! Doing it so you can brag is even worse! "Squach is coolest"!!! We can only hope our Serious Allegation isn't true, for how unrespectable it would be if it WAS true! Mad

Hoary Hardbuckle.

There are a few things wrong with this.

My mum is a science teacher.

Why are almost all of those quotes 'anticipated replies'?
