Funny: Private Eye
- A meta-example. How old was Bill Deedesh, the magazines long time object of fun, when he finally died? 94.
- When the Daily Telegraph celebrated 150 years of publication by re-issuing a facsimile of its first issue from the 1850s, the Eye came up with their own version that consisted of putting the Telegraph's modern image in contemporary terms. It had a cartoon by 'Matthias' rather than Matt, a daring picture of "Miss Eliza Hurley's ankle", young cub reporter Bill Deedes reporting on the Crimean War, and Lord Lucan having been found and turning out to be a commander in the war. Best of all was the opening editorial, in which the editor says the newspaper will not show partisan bias and will consider each issue in a balanced way, before concluding that the Tory Party is always the best choice to run a happy, prosperous Britain, "at peace with itself, and at war with everyone else."
