Sturgeon, fuckwit...updated...

Will Sturgeon...hack turned Lewis flack...now blogging. Here.


(NB: the 'fuckwit' in the headline does not refer to Will, it refers to my picture editor. As in, "I said Sturgeon, fuckwit, not surgeon..." Still, grabs the attention, doesn't it?)

"Sturgeon, fuckwit"??

That's a tad harsh TWL. He was always pretty nice to PRs in his hack days and I can't see anything very offensive on the blog?

Wondering why the headline? Did he turn down a job at Edelman or had it been a long day?

Oh. My. God.

Do I really have to explain these things? Look at the picture.

"I said 'Sturgeon', fuckwit, not 'surgeon'..."

It was a dig at my picture editor.

Will's a top man. Far from a fuckwit.

Don't worry TWL, I get it even if the AE doesn't..

And was once a possible contender for THHB? Opinions please?

I reckon a pic of a big fish would have been better...and the gags could have been just as funny...

Really? You think a picture of a sturgeon would have been better to illustrate a story about Sturgeon?

Stop reading this blog right now.

artichoke - I guess it's so obvious that TWL's ended up explaining it!? AE about ten years ago fella and thankfully no longer in PR. Go back to writing for European VAR or whatever it is

oh my word - we really are touchy. Dunno about me stopping reading this blog. Maybe you should stop writing the fucker if you are going to keep having hissy fits when people wind you up...

Who's having a hissy fit?

You're the one who can't tell a decent gag from a shite one, not me. Just thought you might want to read something more appropriate. Like Harry Potter.

Your 'gag' was not lost on me. But sadly, my 'gag' appears to have been completely lost on you. Never mind - I will not confuse you any further...

The only thing I'm confused about is why you think you're funny.

Fellas, calm down... It's just a gag... Even Sturgeon himself is less uppity about it tha you lot.http://sturgeonslaw.blogspot.com

I never said I was, but then neither did you. Furthermore, my dad is bigger than your dad.

Baiting tech PRs, that's what it is!

artichoke - good idea. That's why I left PR, so I could bait them as well. Hard life being a journo ;-)
