Daily Record nicks front page joke headline offof readers of this blog

The Daily Record yesterday shamelessly borrowed a long-standing joke established by the readers of this blog in order to deal with a major news story.

A shocked loveandgarbage said,

“Why would any newspaper stoop so low as to borrow a three and a half year old joke from a blog in order to illustrate a news story? I mean calling for a vote to decide whether Stewart Stevenson MSP, the inept anti-hero of my 2007 blog entries, looked more like Beaker or Father Jack was just a cheap laugh to tide me over after the Tommy Sheridan defamation case had ended and the Govan Bigfoot left the Scottish Parliament. That my readership voted by a substantial margin in favour of naming him Father Jack was just a laugh. Little did I imagine that the Daily Record would plaster a giant picture of Father Jack across their front page years later and pretend that they’d come up with the gag.”

Shameless rip off

No spokesman for the Daily Record was available for comment. But we know where they live.
