PEACHES Geldof was buried today. The Guardian has a feature called:

Peaches Geldof’s funeral – in picture : Stars from the world of show business attend the service at St Mary Magdalene and St Lawrence church in Kent

That’s a bit tabloid, isn’t it? We love the tabloids here at Anorak. But the Guardian doesn’t.

If so, we must doff our hats to the Britannia of idiocy, and observe that she should really be on coins – the unapologetic face of some apocalypse-baiting modern currency. Call it Twitcoins, and pile in today.
