back to article Almighty rumpus in Swedish lesbian enclave

The news earlier this week that Chinese state news agency Xinhua had identified a hitherto unknown lesbian enclave buried deep in the forests of northern Sweden prompted sceptical commenters to demand photographic evidence of the sapphic paradise. Well, ever eager to oblige, we've quite amazingly got hold of a photograph of a …

    Best one yet.

    Well done Reg. This has really cheered me up on what has been a very slow Friday morning - so many thanks.

    Also, just to add that the thought of "covering" Anna Friels rear has really perked me up. Although I shall leave the thoughts of what I would like to cover her perfect arse in... to your collective imaginations.

    Thankyou ElReg

    I'm having a shit day and needed a bit of light relief (seeing as the story is about a lesbian enclave, no pun intended).

    BIGGER picture please

    And I can reveal that the YouTube video that is unavailable in the UK is steamy NSFW full frontal svelte scantily-clad scandanavian sapphic smut of the highest (Jacqui Smith expense worthy) quality. Too bad you can't see it in the UK I guess....

    Once again, give us some desktop sized copies of these exclusive photos please Reg.

    That's so obviously a photoshop fake! The lighting's all wrong, shadows in the wrong place and it's as clear a daylight where Optimus Prime has been digitally removed (the great one using his transforming abilities to provide the enclave with suitable electro-mechanical assistance).

    "a roving radical Islamic cleric"

    Don't be silly! Clerics are wusses who only get a few poxy healing spells and aren't allowed to use any weapon better than a mace. With all those guns and bombs, that guy has to be a fighter, maybe a paladin. Definitely not a cleric though.

    um, has anyone considered...

    ...that there might be lesbians among the El Reg readers? Now, are we laughing our heads off with the boys? Or perhaps sighing a weary sigh, because of course we are, simply by existing, both titilating and amusing? I'm not getting on my 'this offends me' high horse, as I am always told I am not allowed one ('it's just a bit of fun') but geez, guys, can't we move on from the automatic fnarr-fnarr the word 'lesbian' seems to conjure?

    @Hollerith 1

    But don't you find the Chinese reporting amusing?

    Usually this kind of this is reported in the Reg anyway, lesbians or no.

    Like it or not, though, some men will always laugh at things like this.

    Left to their own devices, it's probably all they'd do in fact.

    Don't just dismiss this as comedy at the expense of lesbians though.

    Yes, lesbians are involved, but I'd see it more as poking fun at Chinese news

    Kicking Xinhua while they're down, so to speak.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinion though.

    See now there's some generalisation right there, what makes you assume all the boys are laughing our heads of, or automatically fnarr-fnarring? (If that's even a word).

    Not everybody here is a knuckle dragging ape who considers Viz or loaded the height of literature you know... So if you promise to stop generalising, I promise not to snicker.

    you should probably read the article before commenting.

    I'm with you, Hollerith 1. I don't find lesbians per se at all funny. You'll not hear even a single fnarr from me.

    *Humourless* lesbians, on the other hand, are quite hilarious.

    Anna Friels Arse asks for Assylum

    It amazing that the only thing to come out of this whole plastic jobbie picture with any dignity is Anna Friels Arse

    The Plastic Lesbian cannibal People that seem to populate this part of the frozen north must be going gaga for a slice of the famous Friel Hairy Bacon. Has she been arsenapped and do we need to send Lester in with a cracked team, to bring home the Friel bacon.

    The Tortillera Sarten of West Yorkshire

    Just go to Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire. 25% of the population live a lets-be-friends life among the beads and herbs. There are few sausage sandwiches there however. Once upon a time the Cinema matinees showed Superman, now it would have to be Superwoman: she would brobably still have a big bulge in the blue tights!

    On the contrary, Roger's (ex parte Viz) Profanosaurus is IMHO the finest extant counterexample to Ayer's Language Truth & Logic, as well as to the Oxford English Dictionary. I guarantee it will cheer up even the most anonymous of cowards on any bad of your choice after May 2010. Or your money back. Look what it did for me.
