Back before you know it.
Back before you know it.
The Sunday Times.
The INM Approach!
The Gemma Question!
Preposterous: “Bodger, there have been a number of queries about Broadsheet from representatives of the traditional media in the last fortnight.”
Preposterous: “After eight years of indifference we have been approached by journalists wishing to write about the site”
Bodger: “Brilliant. Our recent series of excellent Golden Discs competitions I expect?”
Preposterous “They have been fascinating.”
Bodger: “They really have.”
Preposterous: “But no. It may have something to do with Gemma O’Doherty’s recent campaign.”
Preposterous “And I must warn you, much of the interest doesn’t seem particularly positive.”
Bodger: *dry swallow*
Preposterous: “Some of it centres around our finances.”
Bodger: “We have finances?”
Preposterous: “The accounts.”
Bodger: “We have accounts?”
Preposterous: “We have a complete set of books and are fully tax compliant.”
Preposterous: “Largely owing to the fact that they don’t tax ongoing, horrendous losses.”
Bodger: “Take that, Revenue.”
Preposterous: “I’m not sure that satisfied them.”
Bodger: “Sounds pretty humiliating.”
Preposterous: “It felt something close to shame.”
Bodger: “To be broke and then having to prove you’re broke.”
Preposterous: “The concept that we do this for nothing was not credible.”
Bodger “And the sense of not being believed when you say you’re broke.”
Bodger: “A broke, broken dude. A hollow, disbelieved shell.”
Bodger: “I mean you’re not a young man.”
Preposterous: (adjusts top knot) “No.”
Bodger: “You’re an old guy. With a commercially unviable website.”
Preposterous: “With enormous potential and a loyal…”
Bodger:”A sad old dreamer trolled and laughed at by right thinking people.”
Preposterous: “Onwards.” (smiles weakly)
Bodger: “You’ve nothing to show for eight years except the contempt of your fellow journalists, an ability to swallow your pride on a minute to minute basis and Leather Jacket Guy’s private number.”
Preposterous: “That’s just a regular number he gives out.”
Bodger: “Well, exactly. The whole thing is ridiculous.”
Preposterous: “It does sound pretty bleak when put like that.”
Bodger: “Preposterous, even.”
Preposterous: “That too.”
Bodger: “Think on that.”
Preposterous: “Yes. I will.”
Bodger: “I would.”
