Of all the animals of prey, man is the only sociable one.
Every one of us preys upon his neighbour, and yet we herd together.

Sue previsor - unmasked

Humour being truly in the eye of the beholder, comedy is not an easy thing to pull off consistently.

Those who have been following the contributions of Daily Mail commentor Sue Previsor from Doncaster - also spotted and more extensively tracked by SBML - know already that 'she' has been trolling the columns for some months with misspelt and controversial opinions.

The offerings were, as a rule, fairly well judged in tone and content; occasionally hilarious...
"lots off us dont care about the planet and abuse our plaice hear and this is what happens appocolipse"
...but always just plausible enough in isolation to pass moderation as the work of the semi-literate, opinionated public sector employee she claimed to be - heaven knows we've all met examples of the type.

This week, though, she has blown her cover completely; surely no one - not even by the Mail's distinctly elastic standards of moderation - could be convinced by this:

this is great news and cant come soon enough for my son who love his food and is now 45 stone. he had an gastric band fited on the nhs ten year ago but started with his food addiction again an few months afterwards. i will ask my doctor about those next time we go down for his insulins
