Edinburgh Flipside Not Actually Dead (Just Been Asleep For A Few Months).
In a shocking development, it has transpired that the not at all popular and totally unimportant satirical news website, Edinburgh Flipside, are not dead, as was suggested by the Edinburgh Tab. They were in fact “Just sleeping”, according to their incumbent EIC Saniel Dwain, and have been for the last few months.
“We took a small nap after exams”, he said, “ we have just woken up. It is perfect timing really, what with the fringe about to start. I suppose we really should release some content or something. To be honest we also thought the Tab would write some shit about us being dead, and they totally did, LOL. #Bantsorsomething”
We took to the streets to gauge the response of the public and found that 99% of people either didn’t care or hadn’t heard of Edinburgh Flipside (The 1% figure relates to Keith who does the website programming and he said he wasn’t fussed really, but guessed it was good some ways as he would feel less bad about living in his mums attic now he had graduated).
The EIC of the Tab has come out in apology after proclaiming the organisation dead in the first place.
“Look we have made a small error, it is not like we ever base our articles on sound evidence or facts anyway, most people just read us for our buzzfeed style stuff, and even that they only read because they can’t be arsed revising.”
