Wimbledon? Common...

Tennis! Brilliant! Tim Henman and the Australian with the hair and that bloke who invented Fred Perry shirts - what was he called again? Anyway, if you're sat a desk at a moronically poor periodical just wondering what you can fill your useless pages with then Hannah Kenward at Shine has great news! She's collected all the rubbish weather crap you never cared about re: Wimbledon and spammed every website in the country asking if they want to run it. Well, it's a job, I suppose. Though the website boss she sent this to didn't feel quite as forgiving:

DID BORAT WRITE THIS PIECE OF USELESS SHIT? "Always controversial these weather-based gems of information may help to colour your editorial!" WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?

Begin forwarded message:
From: "Hannah Kenward"
Subject: WIMBLEDON WEATHER - Evian's Facts and Figures

Did you know that the last year Wimbledon ran uninterrupted with no rain was 1995!

To help with any Wimbledon themed stories you may be planning for The Championship’s we wanted to send through these fun facts looking at the weather during Britain’s biggest tennis tournament. Always controversial these weather-based gems of information may help to colour your editorial!

If you’d like any further information of images then please do get in touch.

Best wishes,

Who's championship is it? For why the use of a possessive apostrophe?

What story is this? That Wimbledon is happening? Jesus, I had no idea. Nobody had mentioned it! Hopefully Shine has notified the BBC so they can send some cameras down or something.

I also love that Evian's core values are "youth, purity and glamour" - three of the clumsiest antonyms ever arranged together.

What do you get is you spell Evian backwards? Yes kids... the same as when you decide not to have your press releases proofread. Ho ho.

Hi Dave: I would have thought that purity and glamour are mutually exclusive. But what do I know, I'm not a PR wonk.

Lol have noticed glaring typo in my comment above. Will leave it there for the irony about ranting about proofreading then cocking up the word "if".
