Guardian Columnist Makes Piss-Awful Jokes

Mike Selvey, the Guardian's cricket writer, has a piece on the forthcoming cricket season which is generally good, but begins with a series of truly wince-inducing puns:

The thousands intending to flock to Glastonbury this year already know that they will have to get through Garbage before arriving at Coldplay and White Stripes. Not unlike this coming cricket season, in fact, for with the county season proper beginning today (cold play to open here, according to the forecast), it is hard not to get the feeling that we will be kicking our heels for the next three months waiting for the main event. At Glastonbury they get Ash; cricket lovers get the Ashes.

Please, please, noooo....
