Here’s mine for this week, based on someone who’s making the news over here.
Notice Me, by Emma Baird
With a snigger that smacked of Beavis and Butthead, Randy clicked ‘Send’ and sat back, launching his latest hate-filled 140-character rocket into the ether.

“Randy, you in there?”
“Mooooommmm,” he whined as his mother came in, bearing sandwiches.
“Whaddya doin’ son?” She was an understanding kind of mom.
“Tryin’ to get this woman’s attention, Ma. She’s an amazin’ feminist and I dunno what else to do to get her to notice me. Wish I could date her!”
