Exclusive: Good news for King street .. at last

'Good news for KIng St, Sports Direct will be opening soon'

'Good news for King St, Sports Direct will be opening soon'

EXCLUSIVE: Mr Monkey can exclusively reveal that South Shield’s beleaguered town centre is about to receive a welcome boost.

Newcastle United’s owner Mike Ashley, is set to open a branch of Sports Direct in South Shields.

The news comes at a time when Mr Ashley, the under-fire Newcastle United owner is expanding his business portfolio in an effort to establish his dominance over rival sportswear retailer JJB Sports.

Mr Monkey can confirm that Sports Direct has acquired the former Woolworths site on King Street and is set to open it’s doors to the public in June.

This chimp can also confirm that Sports Direct decision to open a store in South Shields has nothing to do with the council, the council leader or South Tyneside Means Business – just in case the council’s Office of Propaganda were thinking of claiming the credit!

Mr Monkey wonders whether this latest addition to a ‘thriving King Street’ means we’ll be seeing more of our shopaholic invisible MP, David Miliband .. sadly not, Mr Monkey has just learned that Sports Direct doesn’t sell Arsenal tops.

Sock and Awe – Part 2

On Thursday Mr Monkey brought you the Sock and Awe game where bloggers can follow in the footsteps of the Iraqi Journalist who had the balls to throw his shoes at George W Bush.

Judging by the massive response to this post; nearly 2000 page hits in less than 48 hours, Mr Monkey’s reckons you are either a sick lot or you’d liked to have hit the war mongering bastard yourself.

The Iraqi shoe throwing incident has led to ‘A Coalition of Shoe Throwers’. The Germans have now also developed their own version of the game where shoe throwers simply click on the shoe and try and hit Bush as many times as they can in 50 seconds, and there’s even a league table of top scorers.

SOCK AND AWE – Your Chance To Hit George Bush In The Face

Council leader Iain Malcolm known for his love of being in the media spotlight seems to have missed an opportunity of a lifetime .. if only he’d thought of throwing his shoes at US President George W Bush.

Bloggers will remember seeing TV images of an extremely pissed off Iraqi hurling his shoes at Bush during a press conference in Baghdad and who can forget the dumb founded look on Dubya’s face as he ducked to avoid being struck by a pair of size 10’s?

Mr Monkey reckons millions of people across the globe would love to do the same and thanks to Alex Tew – he of the million dollar home page – we can.

Alex has put together a web game called SOCK AND AWE – the object of the game is to hit George W Bush with as many shoes as possible.

At the time of posting, 1.4 million visitors have hit Bush with 27962373 shoes … so what you waiting for?
