Something For The Weekend #8
Regular readers of the People’s Republic could be forgiven for assuming the
This Is Exeter website is pretty much beyond parody. Sprawling, right-wing and frequently proper fucking surreal, This Is Exeter is a constant source of piss-taking fun during slow news days at PRSD Towers.
Which is why we know you’ll get a kick outta This Isn’t Exeter. Granted, the writing isn’t as sharp as it should be (’man shits himself during a thunderstorm’ is hardly something you’d find on The Onion) but there are plenty of great little touches (like the Shit Jobs section, featuring ‘Bin Man’ and ‘Dinner Lady’) and it should have Northcliffe’s lawyers furiously spitting their brandy over the Missus’s Mercedes. Plus, This Isn’t Exeter is helluva lot easier to navigate than the real thing!
Our advice is, you’d better catch it now before those Cease And Desist orders come flooding in. It’s a hoot!
