Could this be the biggest fail ever?

Have a read, it's about the old revamped Desperate Dan when the Dandy Xtreme appeared, biggest fail ever, they moan that Dan doesn't eat cow pies even though the picture below has the new Desperate Dan eating? You guessed it, a cow pie.


  1. And it's absolutely true because I read it in the Daily Mail.

    Wow... just wow. I didn't think standards of journalism really had sunk that low. It's as if they just typed the words "desperate dan" into Google Images and used whatever they could find, without bothering to research any of it.

    And then they bluffed some humiliatingly wide of the mark captions for said random pictures!

    Picture: Pre-revamp Dan (the one they're praising), as pictured on the Dandy Annual 2005.
    Caption: "No more Mr Tough Guy: The bumbling, unthreatening Dan of today".

    Picture: Post-revamp pre-Smart Dan (the one they're complaining about), in a stock pose.
    Caption: "The dynamic Desperate Dan of old".

    WTF? Seriously, WTF?

    I'm no fan of the new Dan either, but even he doesn't deserve this impotent, ignorant tabloid froth.

  2. Exactly my point... The Daily Mail completely failed! They show pictures of the old Dan but say it's the new one... :/

    I love the new Desperate Dan, he is so good! Jamie's done a great job! :D

  3. Hang on... It says he disappeared from the comic in 1997? That's a lie! He's been in every issue and I have comics from both 1997 and 1998 and he's in them...
