See this post over on guido’s blog. It’s a hilariously pretentious complaint email from The Times’ Giles Cohen, bollocking his subs for removing a single letter.

This is genius! Easily one of the funniest things I’ve read in ages. The comments are great too.. this is my personal favorite:
Sub-editor with a red pen said…
“I’ll just remove this indefinite article because Coren is an illiterate cunt and i know best”.
Giles, you ARE an illiterate cunt. And the sub-editors DO know best.
So fuck off!
So, thank God. I have been able to say something to a cretinous freelance writer that I have wanted to say to one of them for ages but was always too polite.
Thank you Giles. Your life has not been an entire waste. Nearly. But not quite.”
