In Other News – 12 December 2016

1 min read


This week, marks the beginning of the end of 2016. And as I don my armour from X-Men: Apocalypse and boots to give me some lift, I remind you that everything that 2016 has built will fall! And from the ashes of that year, we’ll build a new one! A better one! Also, this entire rant has absolutely nothing to do with a staff debate about which flavour of milkshake is the best.

Clearly, anyone who says anything other than peanut butter is in league with maniacs. Clearly.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    I’ve had a peanut butter milkshake. Darryn is having one of his daily broken watch moments.

    • Original Heretic

      Peanut butter milkshake?!

      Milkshake brings the boys to the yard….for nuts?

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        They think it’s bringing them for nuts. I think it’s bringing them for an ice bath & a rusty knife.

        • Original Heretic

          Sweet pork and kidney pie?

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            Long pork…

          • Original Heretic

            Bleh. Silly mistake on my part. I was thinking of an apocalypse story I’m busy working on (that I’m currently quite steeped in, hence my confusion), where human meat is packaged as “sweet pork”. Beware the sweet veal….

      • HairyEwok
    • “peanut butter milkshake”

      That sounds magnificent!

  • Captain JJ

    Ubisoft has been doing this fan-feedback thing a lot now.
    Maybe they’re really trying to turn a new leaf here.

    • Yes it’s called Vivendi 😛

  • GooseZA

    Lime milkshake or GTFO.
