VEGANS have repeated their claim that they have their own type of cheese.
Despite being told they are demonstrably wrong, the vegans keep saying it, as if somehow that could eventually make it true.
Vegan Tom Booker said: “When I first went vegan, I was excited to tell all my non-vegan friends about how I was saving the world, and how they were all basically Nazis.
“But I was also quite sad about pizza.
“I needn’t have worried, because we have our own vegan cheese, and it tastes exactly the same as planet-destroying cow cheese, but without the aftertaste of murder. You can barely even tell that it’s made from nuts.”
He added: “We also have our own nut milk.”
Booker’s girlfriend, Emma Bradshaw, said: “It’s great that Tom’s so involved in some fucking cause. But it’s not cheese, it’s a rubbery, beige delusion.”
THERESA May has admitted that the ‘devastating’ election result made her shed a tear which burned through a desk, three floors and an intern.
The tear, which the prime minister said was shed ‘for Britain’, rolled down her face like a bead of liquid mercury and hit the desk with a bang and flash which blinded everybody in the room.
When the smoke cleared, party staff realised from the screams downstairs that it had burned straight through the floor and was causing chaos on the level below.
May said: “It kept slowly burning through carpet, concrete and steel without showing any diminishing of its size or effect. The ceiling tiles looked like a meteor had hit them.
“Luckily on the third floor it landed on an intern and on contact with flesh began to mutate into something new and horrifying, which gave us time to stop it.
“The tear was eventually extracted and is being kept in a secure facility at Porton Down.”
May added: “They believe my little tear could be used to create a new bioweapon which could lay waste to whole continents. Nice one.”
Quote: Authorities in
Horror Director George A Romero may well be dead, but so far nobody has dared get close enough to make sure.
Romero, who created the zombie genre of films and inspired generations of writers, directors and game creators to follow in his shambling, bloodied footsteps, is understood to have stopped breathing last night but that means nothing. Nothing, you fools.
Fans and followers have been very carefully showing their respects from a safe distance; you know, just in case.
His influence over contemporary pop-culture was immense: from World War Z to The Walking Dead to the White Walkers of Game of Thrones, it is unlikely that any of these things would have happened if he hadn’t filmed a low-budget shocker in 1968 – a shocker that was far deeper than it appeared upon first sight.
That film, Night of the Living Dead, has been described as the only film ‘to truly capture what Pittsburgh is all about’.
Using horror as social commentary, he went on to cover consumerism, militarism and economics followed – inspiring in his wake creatives such as Peter Jackson, Guillermo del Toro and Stephen King.
He also inspired Eli Roth, but you can’t have everything.
Romero had a fierce satirical mind which highlighted the absurdities of modern life through the medium of taking ideas to their logical extreme and ridiculing them, but we here at NewsThump wouldn’t know anything about that.
Rest in Peace, George. Please.

QUESTIONS have been raised as to whether men’s sport should be given equal coverage to women’s sport.
Yesterday saw England’s cricketers win the women’s world cup in a thrilling finale before England’s footballers beat Spain 2-0 at the women’s European Championships, something the men’s team will never achieve without drugs.
Sport watcher Wayne Hayes said: “It’s time we admitted that men aren’t really equipped to do sport. They lack the determination, the passion, and most of all, the killer instinct that sets our sportswomen apart from the ordinary bloke on the street.
“Giving men’s sport equal coverage is a good idea in theory, but I don’t know anyone who actually enjoys watching it.”
Football fan Tom Logan added: “Watching the Lionesses, I felt enjoyment, mixed with excitement and pride. As an England supporter I’ve never experienced any of those emotions before.”
Meanwhile, a British man did achieve some sporting success at the weekend but no-one cared because all he did was ride around France on his bicycle

Donald Trump and Kim Jong-Un have escalated their risible dick-waving contest today.
Trump, who is so insecure about the size of his dong that he has made impromptu speeches about how big it is, told reporters that he has an absolutely huge todger, far bigger than Kim’s, and a lot of people say that.
Meanwhile, Kim Jong-Un, who is so fat he hasn’t seen his own penis without a mirror in over five years, responded by dancing around shouting that he has a massive – yes massive – wang and if he got it out – which he might – then you’d be terrified.
“We must be vigilant to prevent Kim Jong-Un penetrating the US by the back door and lobbing in big ones from behind our backs,” said Trump in a speech that inadvertently said a lot more about him than his opponent.
Kim responded to Trump’s increase in pressure by threatening to whip it out at any moment, just you see if he won’t.
“I could, you know, and you’d all be amazed how big it is,” he told senior party cadres to rapturous applause.
“The only reason I don’t is because I’m a kind a generous man who doesn’t want to shame others. Yes, that’s it.”
Much of the world is ambivalent about the ongoing conflict, with many people saying that if they want to watch unlikeable twats wave their dicks at each other there’s the lead up to the Mayweather/ McGregor fight for that.

THERESA May has been returned to her Japanese manufacturers Hitachi for a full factory upgrade.
The prime minister is ostensibly in Japan for a trade deal it has confirmed it will not discuss and to pick fights with North Korea, but is actually receiving an overdue software, firmware and hardware systems reboot.
AI specialist Shinichi Matsutoya said: “I warned you that version could not win an election. It just gives you the blue screen of death.
“We’ve been patching as best we can, and thankfully she didn’t get hit in the ransomware attack because she never could network with the NHS, but she really needs a complete rebuild.
“’Brexit means Brexit’? They get stuck in a feedback loop if you change their function while you’re still running the same kernel. Surprised nobody spotted it.”
Matsutoya added: “Do try and keep her away from anything… ethical. Or she’ll just overheat again.”
The Tory party was left reeling last night after Theresa May, after spending an afternoon on the sake in Tokyo, drunkenly announced that she will lead the Tories into the next election.
Mrs May, currently in Japan to desperately plead with them not to forget us after Brexit, added that she would ‘take the f**king lot of you on’.
The Prime Minister made the claims in a shambolic BBC interview.
“Well, it was clear the PM was drunk for the moment she said she was definitely going to lead the party into the next election,” said a Tory party insider.
“I mean, obviously. Only a thoroughly inebriated person would make that claim in her position.”
However, despite making such an absurd claim, the interview only went downhill from there.
“Well, I think the catastrophic flatulence was probably the worst thing. Poor old Ben Wright looked like he was about to turn green. I had no idea that sake had such a disastrous effect on the gastric system.
“The PM then went on to state that Phillip Hammond ‘could f**k off for a start, the poncey streak of piss,’ she visibly adjusted her underwear as her ‘pants are halfway up my f**king arse’, and suggested that she could beat up Jeremy Corbyn ‘no bother’.”
The interview ended in disarray as a voice off camera could be heard shouting ‘kebab mate?’ Before the PM staggered off muttering ‘f**king mint. Better be enough hot sauce on’.
The interview is already being considered as one of her more competent performances since becoming Prime Minister.

ISIS, who are so miserably desperate they’ll claim to be responsible for tailbacks on the A14, your milk going off and Russ Abbott’s Madhouse back in the 1980s, have decided that this risible attempt is beneath even them – and that’s saying something.

A man has reacted to a trailer for the new Tomb Raider film with a complaint regarding breasts.
Simon Williams, 31, watched the trailer for the new film in the spare room of his mum’s house, before simply saying “no” and slamming his laptop shut.
“Large knockers are key to Lara Croft’s character,” insisted Williams.
“A decent script and good action set-pieces are a distant second, I’m afraid. I should know, I’ve played all of the Tomb Raider games and large breasts of varying graphical quality were definitely the highlight.
“It’s blatant oversights like these that mean video game movies are rarely taken seriously or reviewed well. Some good bouncy action will put paid to all of that- at least for me, anyway.”
Simon’s mother said, “I’m very proud of Simon for standing up for what he believes in. I have to say that, I suppose, even if what he believes in is frivolous at best and a dreadful reflection on how I raised him.”
Film producer, Jay Cooper, said, “We welcome all feedback, apart from Martin’s, obviously, because it’s stupid.”

The backstory is that one of the few songs 90% of the swedish population can sing along to goes on about how "state and capital are in the same boat together but they arent the ones rowing" it has lots of verses and describes various aspects of capitalism.

I quite like it. How do the lyrics sound when you understand Swedish, compared to the english translation? "The day-to-day expansion rate is regulated by the business cycle, Then the woman is assigned to her place in the economic structure" is the sort of song only a left communist would write, with their usual eye for style. I remember someone posting up the songs Guy Debord and that lot wrote which i also thought sounded alright, but someone said that if you speak French it sounds a bit naff. Wondered if this was the case here too, or if the lyrics are catchier in Swedish.
Also, how did it happen that most people can sing it, is it the Swedish Tubthumping? Why do tory youth types sing it?

That translation I quoted is not very elegant to say the least... Some songs have reached a status in sweden that's hard to compare with how it works in the UK. From my 12 years living there I never saw any evidence that songs reach that level in the UK. Could be just not getting it as an 'outsider' or the relative tiny population here. Or that swedes are obsessed with summer and some songs that get associated with it become long term massive.
There's an english wikipedia page for the band who wrote the song in the 70s.

I hope the next twist in the story is that RGA get beat up by vegans. Also, had a look at other recent stories on their site, saw they had one about the nazi attack on an Austin anarchist bookshop, thought to myself "I bet they're going to work some weird anti-anarchist angle into this", and boy oh boy they did not disappoint:
"While the bookstore staff and its official Facebook page blame Nazis for the attack, local Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) members rushed to accuse local Maoists, hoping to create rumor and gossip, objectively serving the repressive state.
Maoists in Austin, as well as many community organizations which support them, have a longstanding organizational boycott of MWB, due to the financial backers of the bookstore issuing a ban on group study of Communist materials including V.I. Lenin’s masterpiece The State and Revolution.
According to bookstore backers, there were fears that the Maoists were using such texts to rapidly convert anarchists into revolutionaries.
“Maoist actions are politically clear and distinct,” said a local supporter of the Maoist movement. “Anyone in Austin can verify this, the use of red paint, the hammer and sickle, etc. are the symbols of Maoism. While we uphold the boycott called for by RGA, no one supports a fascist attack against the bookstore.”
“MWB’s vulnerability is what is tragic,” the source continued. “By alienating the only local forces who could physically defend them, they become easy prey to boost the confidence of fascists which objectively harms the city and its people.”
Incendiary resolutely condemns all fascist activity as well as all attempts from DSA members to carry out pig work against local revolutionaries to the benefit of the fascist perpetrators.
MonkeyWrench staff, while correcting the slander of the DSA members, failed to take any action to remove the comments of those who would criminalize the local revolutionary movement."
So, "it's shocking and disgusting that people would think we'd attack this bookstore!
