Cor blimey bloody charlie!  It's nearly December, where the hell has the year gone?

So where to start this issue?  Well how about the word "Vile"?

The dictionary defines it as follows:

There should be an addition to it, "Used by The Daily Mail and The Sun every bloody day"

Have you noticed its use?  It must be one of the most overused words in the papers of the last couple of years.

"Vile trolls attack [C-list knobhead]"

Everything a little disagreeable is always described as "vile".  Does my head in, it's like they're trying to make out it's the worst situation that's ever happened so they try to use it as the worst superlative they can find, but sadly it's been used to death so it no longer has the same meaning.

See also vile's very own anagram, "evil".

"Evil X does Y to Z"

I guess it sells papers but evil has been used so much over the years that it no longer has the same effect on us.

Twitter users love the use of vile too.  Vile Brexiteers, vile trolls, vile fucking shits.

Let's get some alternative words in play, eh kids?  Or are vile and evil just long enough not to confuse people?  The Daily Mail and Sun reading plebs would have to look up abhorrent.  Mind you, they'd probably think it's a new way to download films.

It's 2018....

and BANTZ are illegal.

So, if you read the article, you'll see that a bunch of students from Lancaster Uni are in a spot of bother over a set of T-Shirts they wore on a night out (to a student club).

The clothing had things like "I like 12 year olds" and "Gary Glitter Innocent".

Now, these might be distasteful "slogans" but it's clear the students were just mucking about.  I mean, it's not like they've gone out of their way to get professionally done T-shirts for god's sake, they're written on in felt fucking pen.

One idiot told the Independent, "The issue is that of a hate crime. It should have been reported to the police and those living on campus who could had [sic] been offended".

A hate crime?  What hate crime?  It's offensive to some, sure, which was clearly the aim of the "Snow Sports Society" as they call themselves, but where does this fit into a hate crime?  It doesn't, it's just another set of snowflake idiots trying to find offence in everything.  If you don't find it funny then so what, if you find the content offensive that doesn't necessarily mean you personally are offended, you do know you're capable of just turning away, yes?

To be personally offended surely it has to be directed at you?

I mean, that quote to the Indi, apart from it not making 100% sense (the student was probably drunk at the time), why should it have been reported to the police?  Why should it have been reported to people on campus?  Surely the best thing to do is not give them any publicity and they'll just not do it again when they realise they're not winding anyone up?

Not everything you don't like is a crime, yet.
