The Post

We're going to make a prediction: if you don't read this issue of the Post, you will be sorry to have missed out on all the fun. We also predict that if you read it you will be by turns enlightened, gobsmacked, overcome by giggles, awed by beauty, and inspired. Just see if you aren't. Come find out why elephants hate Boers but love porkbushes, why FWR's cat is a menace to society, and what makes space so darned intriguing. We'll even tell you what's on at the cinema, and teach you how to stare at goats! (We are not responsible if the goats stare back.) Worth far more than the price of admission, the h2g2 Post.
