Sie haben Stroh im Kopf

hatmandu takes a stand against sub-editors and becomes famous. Well, amoral careerist shithead Jack Straw vocally remembers his effort, but that’s a greater sort of fame than I’ve managed thus far.

Well done, hatmandu, for not just sticking to your guns when faced by subs with considerable less verbal panache than you—after all, any old Coren can do that—but doing it successfully, as judged by Dame Posterity and her bespectacled wingèd monkey. I see Coren’s syntax goes a bit funny when he’s cornered.
