As if The Listener covers don’t often already read like parodies anyway…

Almost perfect! Just needs one semi-naked woman to illustrate an unrelated health story.

Frame-shift mutations in senescence genes do not give you cancer, they make you immortal (duh). The Listener is scaremongering again.

But how does this differ from a normal Listener cover?
Comment by MacDoctor — August 12, 2010 @ 7:14 pm
So that’s how I caught it. The memories flood back to me.

A bit unkind to dress Maggie that way.
Better to win Easton rather than Brash.
You are not suggesting Kim Hill is a bitch are you?

I agree, they need a shot of a pregnant woman in silhouette – naked but angled so as not to offend… Next to a story about something like prostrate cancer.

All about the sort of cancer, that comes with senescence? We shan’t take it lying down.

No bar code, of course. Unlike the regular Listener, you can gaze at this one to your heart’s content, safe in the knowledge that you are not riding on the back of the beast.

They must be mad at you for breaking in and stealing that issue

Russell: damaging senescence genes would obviously halt/prevent the onset of senescence. Obviously. It’s just common sense. The only reason this isn’t a widespread treatment for being old is because of the efforts of the healthcare-pharmaceutical complex, who make billions every year off people with Alzheimer’s.

/s, by the way
Comment by derp de derp — August 13, 2010 @ 3:07 pm
$20 on Kim Hill to interrupt the savage pack of dogs mid-growl (the dogs are mid-growl, not Kim…probably).
P.S. Will the next edition of the Listener have a tear-out test to tell us if we have senescence? I’m worried now.
