Guardian Unlimited – Travelog Blog

by

Gogarty 

You’ve probably already heard about this… my attention was first drawn to it by Football365’s Mediawatch section. I’m still ploughing through the comments now, and it’s rekindling my faith in the general public.

Unless it’s a huge wind-up and I’ve fallen for it, hook. line and sinker…

If it is some kind of viral advertising campaign, it’s pretty sickening in and of itself.

    I spent the first part of my day enjoying this and passing the joy/horror on to others.

    Brilliantly, everyone was so enraged about it they had to write a whole article about everyone being so enraged: http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/travelog/2008/02/editors_response_to_yesterdays.html

    “No one deserves that level of threat and reputation savaging, no matter how skinny his jeans.”

    Classic times.

  2. Swineshead Says:

    Wicked -thanks for the link – can’t wait to see this…

  3. Swineshead Says:

    Piss poor ‘response’ there.

    An apology might’ve been more apt.

  4. smarkatch Says:

    They clearly think everyone was in a tizzle over nothing. In my head, Andy Pietrasik is like that guy on the Grolsch ad, the Dutchie who tells you to untwist your knickers in a patronising voice.

    For that reason alone he deserves a punch to the cock.

  5. Swineshead Says:

    I see him more as a ‘cool’ geography teacher telling the kids to pipe down.

    ‘Hey – chill guys, yeah?’

    Pity this didn’t happen in the music section – it’s far more offensive than the Travel bit.

  6. Napoleon Cockaparte Says:

    Andy who? What’s going on?

  7. Swineshead Says:

    Not much…

    Let’s go and talk about tits in the Rude Tube entry.

  8. Napoleon Cockaparte Says:

    I love tits.

  9. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    Enough to get your own pair?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nepotism

    Max is now part of the Wiki page for nepotism.

  11. Swineshead Says:

    I noticed… poor little twerp.

  12. smarkatch Says:

    I feel bad for him. Sure, he can’t write for shit, but it’s not his fault no-one thought to sub his piece before publishing it. Or, indeed, reject it out of hand on the basis he can’t write for shit.

  13. Swineshead Says:

    Yep – it’s the editor’s fault…
    I wonder if any of it will make it to print…

  14. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    Looks like the boring nerd brigade has wiped him from wikipedia.

  15. Napoleon Cockaparte Says:

    On the subjetc of Thailand, I once knew a Thai woman who had that skill of firing ping pong balls out of her parts. Women are always moaning that we men dominate all the jobs and don’t give ’em any opportunities. Well there’s a job blokes can’t do, right there … unless you can launch a ping pong ball out of your arse, in which case it’s back to the kitchen, ladies, and better luck next time.

    Wha?

  18. Badger Madge Says:

    apparently his dad says he’s not writing the blog any more as the trip has “got off to the worst possible start”

    of course, this is a comment on the travel editor’s wank apology, so could be fake, but shame. i was looking forward to a giggle…

  19. smarkatch Says:

    It’s been edited already? Who’s sat there frantically monitoring the page on nepotism just in case something untoward happens?

    ‘Nepotism’ Log Book:

    Friday: Nothing happened
    Saturday: Nothing happened
    Sunday: Nothing happened
    Monday: Nothing happened
    Tuesday: Nothing happened
    Wednesday: Nothing happened
    Thurday: Nothing happened.
    Friday: Nothing ha– OH BLOODY CHRIST! Someone’s edited the page in an inappropriate way! *awwooooogah awwooooogah* IT’S RED ALERT TIME! Get that edit OFF MY GODDAMN PAGE!

  20. Napoleon Cockaparte Says:

    It was probably a woman, Smarkatch. When they’re not gossiping, worrying about the size of their arses, nagging, or not getting my tea on the bloody table when I come home, they’re editing online encyclopaedias because they know it gets up men’s noses.

  21. Swineshead Says:

    The question’s still not been answered as to whether young Maxy boy got paid…

  22. Swineshead Says:

    Link your blog on that thread smarkatch provided, it’s bloody good for traffic. We’re not getting paid, after all.

  23. Napoleon Cockaparte Says:

    He probably did get paid. By a bloody woman, no doubt.

  24. Swineshead Says:

    Aha – register with the Guardian did you NC?
    You bloody hypocrite…

  25. Napoleon Cockaparte Says:

    Anything to get that shower of Grauniad-reading scum over to my site so I can give ’em both barrels of outraged, right-wing fury. Know your enemy.

  26. Swineshead Says:

    They’ll think you’re being ironic and make you a hero…

  27. Mr Chipz Says:

    Is it bad to hope this young pup Max dies at the hands of Thuggee murderers who like to bum young men to death?

  28. Napoleon Cockaparte Says:

    They bloody-well better not do. How I’ve ended up being the darling of the left-wing set is beyond me. Don’t these people realise that, come the revolution, it’s going to muggins ‘ere lining ’em up to be shot? I suppose that’s why it’s always easy to take down the namby-pamby, leftie bastard set when the guns start firing – they’re too trusting.

  29. Napoleon Cockaparte Says:

    I thought you were dead, Chipz. Welcome back to the land of the living, you:

    Lazy
    Fucking
    Sod

    No offence, o’course.

  30. recoder Says:

    I feel bad for Max. He’s male, he’s 19, he’s an insufferable cunt. We’ve all been there. It’s the commissioning editor who should hang his head in shame.

  31. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    No I reckon it’s valid to give Max some hate too. Given what’s in it for him he has no excuse to be quite such an insufferable cunt.

  32. ourmanwhere Says:

    The Guardian’s have had their heads up their smug North London arses for too long. I am glad they got a kicking and their absolute insistence of continuing to blame their horrible readers suggests they haven’t learnt their lessons.

    Here’s to the next flaming.

  33. John Q Wagonwheel Says:

    It’s so damn quiet. Surely the telly hasn’t been THAT good.

  34. Clair Says:

    I’ve just had an email from a friend who has had dealings with Gogarty Pere, and who describes him as ‘grasping, pushy and free-loading’. Which is nice.

  35. Dustylj Says:

    well done, brother

  36. piqued Says:

    Christ I hate it when someone posts a totally non related/pseudo-cryptic post

    Fuck off to Facebook
