The delightful pub chain JD Wetherspoons has started legal action against a Twitter parody account. It wants Twitter to reveal who is behind the very funny account.
Here is a link to The Independent’s report https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/tom-from-spoons-jd-wetherspoon-twitter-parody-abuse-identity-fake-pub-high-court-ruling-a8682136.html
At The Chatty Chimp we believe in the right to take the mickey out of the great and the good. It is why we exist. Taking the piss is a very British trait, our culture is littered with irreverent, profane and satirical swipes at the establishment.
Using the law, because you’re rich, to shut up dissenting voices, maybe legal but does not strike us as being very moral.
We are asking all of our readers to follow @Wetherspoon__UK on Twitter and if possible, offer them your support.
Wetherspoons removed their twitter account some time ago, which is a bit of a shame.

No special knowledge or educational background is required, as full training will be given. Those with a fear of heights and an aversion to playing with their own poo need not apply. Continue reading “Become an Ordained Minister of The Church of The Chatty Chimp and get a slot on Newsnight”
In social media and everyday life it can be difficult to pin down the modern meanings and usages of words, phrases and acronyms. Fed up with the inclusion of foreign words into English, The Gammon Publishing Company decided to offer its own Dictionary, ‘The Gammonary – Making English Great Again’.
Send any contributions or suggested amendments to email@example.com or via our FB Page The Chatty Chimp or via on Twitter. Continue reading “The Gammonary – Ye Olde English Dictionary of worde, phrase und fable”
