Theatre Guide Dog: Week 7

By on

She shall be great, and shall be called THEATRE GUIDE DOG IV, and she shall reign over Cambridge theatre for ever, and of her kingdom there shall be no end. Amen.

And there was in the same country techies abiding in the field, keeping watch over their props by night. And, lo, the reviewer of The Tab came upon them, and the glory of The Tab shone around them: and they were sore afraid. And the reviewer said unto them: ‘Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all thesps. For unto you is born this day in the city of Camtown a Saviour, which is THEATRE GUIDE DOG IV. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in scandalous opinion, lying in a manger.’

And suddenly there was with the reviewer a multitude of the heavenly host praising The Tab, and saying, Glory to The Tab in the highest, and in the comments-section peace, goodwill toward anonymous cunts.

    'Theater Guide Dog' is the worst thing about The Tab.

      US English is the worst thing about everything.

      Theatre Guide Dog sends festive goodwill to anonymous comment cunt. Anonymous comment cunt is ungrateful.
      See the light, friend.

    This has depressed me no end. I currently see no point to life, even, yes, my beloved U21s commitment. Goodbye dear friends. Until I rise from the tabloid ashes under a new guise….

  • Logic

    Just because you personally don’t find it offensive doesn’t mean that other gay people don’t. Sometimes the words don’t mean anything, but at other times they do, and using gay as an insult can be very insulting.

  • Sir Prise

    What a shock..

  • Virgins FTW

    It’s ok to sexually harrass me, as long as you look like Ryan Gosling. I don’t think society pressures me to have sex until I am 20 because I’m catholic and ugly.

    It’s because you’re all munters

    Mohit clearly wants it but just can’t get it..

    I don’t think dangerous is the right word. “one thing could lead to another and could lead to something dangerous.”

  • Sir Gerald

    23 year old virgins seem to have a common denominator…can’t work out what it is though

    These people were really wise to voice their opinions and kudos to the Tab for putting the piece together!

    Nat clearly wanted her face blurred out / covered up, but in the facebook thumbnail to this article you can see it without the smiley. You should probably change this Tab.
