“The purpose of satire, it has been rightly said, is to strip off the veneer of comforting illusion and cosy half-truth. And our job – as I see it – is to put it back again.”
— Michael Flanders

The Morning Babel takes an irreverent, light-hearted, satirical – and occasionally furiously caustic – look at the world of news, and responds with fictional spoof stories and commentaries. Fictional ones. It is all completely untrue, even when we get very, very angry writing it, and nothing here is claimed to be factually accurate.
Especially any bits that say “it is an accurate and established fact that…”
Rude words appear in our articles. We have tried to stop them, but no matter how many we erase from a draft, as soon as we hit the “publish” button, there they all are again. Words like ‘cunt’, ‘fuck’, ‘wank’, ‘sloppy titjob’, ‘shit’, ‘cockmaster’, ‘asshole’, ‘motherfucker’, ‘pussy’, ‘fuckwittery’ and even ‘McDonald’s’ abound across these pages.
You should therefore be an adult, or failing that be at least thirty years old, to read them.
We would also like to say that we are always looking for new contributors, but sadly we aren’t.
