Welcome to Fat Custard Magazine, my truly shameless
attempt to cadge work off you and prove that I can cut
the mustard in the world of journalism.

Before you flick through this publication let me
promise you one thing - it’s not all about the money.
You see, 15 years ago there was this kid at my school
who was quite big for his age. I don’t wish to say he
was obese but he was certainly more than a little
chubby. Someone gave him the nickname ‘Fat Custard’
- a nickname so brilliant that it stuck with him
throughout his portly schooldays. Ten years later, I
would steal that name and use it as the title for a                           So I’m begging you. Read this magazine and check out

Case #ZX36912 – Dame Ellen MacArthur

Who is she? – Born in Derbyshire in
the mid 1970s, Ellen MacArthur
decided to become a chubby pirate
and go on some sort of three-month
cruise. Somewhat remarkably this led
to a female knighthood in April 2005
and resulted in countless interviews
involving the line “being on that boat
was an emotional and spiritual
journey” which roughly translates as
“I cried all the time and really missed
my dog ‘Starboard’.”

Why the hate? – This case is quite
unique in that the hatred is not
always shared by the overwhelming
majority of the public. In fact, such
hatred is often frowned upon by
Daily Mail readers and the middle
classes who laughably spout such
wank as “she's an inspiration to all
young sailors. We are totally in awe
of what she has done.” This is very
much where my hatred begins,
especially because all “young sailors”
should be shot in the knees. Let’s                             Ellen MacArthur - Looks a little bit like a dinner lady.
