Gulf Weekly The return of the ear that no one reads

In case you’re wondering what the hell “The Return Of The Ear That No One Reads” is all about…let me explain. A long, long, time ago, in a galaxy far away there was a newspaper called the Washington Post.

And every Sunday on the right-hand corner of its F1 page it published the Ear No One Reads!
But everyone did. The thoughts and observations, not to mention the humour became legendary in journalism, but after 42 weeks the Post’s new presses spelt the end of the ear.
But now Dick’s World! has rescued the little blighter and it now proudly resides in its new home…here (well above, but let’s not be pedantic).
So with apologies to the Post and the Czar, and Hugo Chavez, we’re off.
Oh and if someone decides to be a smart-alec and say that the “ear” is technically a strip, let me just say that I don’t give a flying….
If readers wish to contribute to the “Ear”, write in to “The Ear”; gwnewsdesk@tradearabia.net (no more than 20 words mind).
