Sex Sells

You probably donít realise just how good the ODT is. In fact, itís so good that itís been nominated (again) for Newspaper of the Year at the upcoming New Zealand Media Awards. But thereís more ó itís been nominated for the ďYoung readersĒ category. Thatís right ó the ODT, the oldest, whitest, most conservative newspaper in the country, has apparently secured their relevance to kids with stories like these:

As opposed to when a driver is just drunk enough that you shouldnít call the cops, but should simply give them a pie and V and send them on their way.

The great thing about this is that they werenít. According to the article which followed this headline, these two guys were trying to rape little boys by getting them in their car. Which is kind of like a sexual favour, but not really, ODT. Not really.

Continuing in the sexual vein, there have been a number of ďdisturbancesĒ near Dunedinís La Maison brothel. Tragic, really ó the last thing you want when youíve put down your hard earned cash to spend the evening with one of South Dís finest is boy racers doing burnouts outside the window.

Yeah, cause thatís what skeptics do. They professionally doubt things. But itís even better when you do it in groups.
